Here are some good practices for professional dog walkers:

  1. Follow all local laws and regulations regarding dog walking. This may include obtaining necessary licenses or permits.

  2. Make sure you have liability insurance to protect yourself and your business in case of any accidents or injuries.

  3. Have a clear understanding of the individual needs of each dog you walk. This includes knowing their breed, size, age, and any medical or behavioural issues they may have.

  4. Follow all safety precautions when walking dogs, including using a leash and collar, keeping dogs away from busy roads, and never leaving them unattended.

  5. Stay up to date on basic dog first aid and be prepared to handle any emergencies that may arise during a walk.

  6. Keep the dogs clean and well-groomed. This includes cleaning up after them and regularly checking their paws for cuts or injuries.

  7. Communicate regularly with the owners of the dogs you walk, providing updates on their behaviour and any concerns you may have.

  8. Be punctual and reliable, showing up on time for scheduled walks and being available when the owners need you.

  9. Consider providing additional services such as feeding, watering, or administering medication to the dogs you walk.

  10. Show a genuine love and care for the dogs you walk, and be patient and kind with them at all times.
