Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: How do I become a dog walker?
A: There are several ways you can become a dog walker:
  • Work for yourself by offering your services in your community.
  • Apply to a dog walking company for a part-time or full-time job.
  • Sign up for apps like Rover that let you pick up dog walking shifts whenever you want.
Q: How do I start a dog walking business?
A: You don’t necessarily need professional training in dog walking to start a dog walking business; although, it might help! After creating a website, you’ll need to build up a clientele roster. You can do this by offering introductory competitive rates as you wait to grow a reputation in your area.

Q: How soon can I walk my dog after neutering?
A: Usually, dogs should be allowed to rest with minimal activity the first 24-48 hours post-neutering. During this time, just take your dog out for their bathroom breaks. After that, you can start integrating short walks back into their routine. Your vet should provide you with clear guidelines for walking post-neutering.
