When the Kennel Club surveyed 1000 dog owners recently, over 200 admitted they don’t walk their dog regularly.
Professional dog walkers have filled a huge gap in the market for exercising pet dogs and feeding cats across the country.
You will find dog walkers available from sole-traders to companies employing staff with a number of vans covering a wider area.
In many parts of the UK, local councils are introducing licences for dog walkers and limiting the number of dogs that can be walked at any time.
We recommend meeting your prospective dog walker, checking references and seeing how they are with your dog before committing.
