Frequently asked questions

How can I know that the dog walker will take good care of my pet?

Most dog walkers have chosen the profession as they love dogs, this means they’re usually very attentive to your pet’s needs, and they’ll enjoy spending time together. 

We do however always recommend asking for at least two references from your dog walker as well as doing an introduction to your pet so make sure they do get on well.

How many other dogs are walked with my dog?

Most dog walkers are comfortable in groups of around six. It’s more fun for your pet to go on their walk with other dogs and they’ll get more out of the walk. If you ever feel uneasy about your pet being with other dogs, you should discuss this with the dog walker. 

Having a private walk for your dog is usually an option but naturally, comes with a higher price tag.

Will my dog be walked by the same person each day?

Yes, it is common practice to keep your dog with the same person for each walk. This does, of course, vary from business to business, so it’s always worth double checking before booking anything.

What age can I start using a dog walker?

Young dogs can start with group walks from about six months, though it's always best to judge this depending on how independent your dog is, some will be better than others. If they are too young, most dog walkers can organise more suitable service.

Should I ask to see their documentation for information such as police checks and insurance?

Yes, you should always ask for all the documentation that your dog trainer has, this will enable you to see their experience and help to put your mind at ease.

It’s important to introduce your dog to their new walker while you are still with them, this helps to show everything is ok. Additionally, it helps you to get a feel for the person who will be looking after your pet and how well they get on.

If your dog is uneasy with travelling in vehicles, try and find someone who is as close as possible. Many local dog walkers will be able to include your house in the walk, so they don’t have to get in the car.
