Choosing a dog walker with Bark

Even the most devoted dog owners need help caring for their furry friends every once in a while. Life can be very busy and finding the time to walk your dog every day can be tough.! As much as we might want to, we can’t take our dogs with us everywhere we go. Work meetings, social events and even physical injuries are all common obstacles for dog owners. Use Bark to find experienced and trusted dog walkers who will look after your pup. They’ll provide them with plenty of TLC.

Additional services

Some walkers offer email updates informing you of any toys that may have been sniffed out along the way, as well as distance, time, and the temperament of your dog on that particular day. Others may update you face-to-face. Whatever service you choose via Bark, you can rest assured that your best friend will be taken care of. Tell us exactly what you and your dog need, and we’ll be sure to find the right walkers for you.

What to expect

Every pet has their own needs, and there are certified dog walkers eager to meet them and give you peace of mind. Depending on the professional that you choose, there are a number of different options available. For puppies, you may want choose a service that partners up with other dogs to help socialise them. Older dogs may need a shorter distance without energetic youngsters. Working dogs may need a marathon. On the other hand, you may want to choose a more personal one-to-one service where your dog gets all the love and attention!

Why should our clients choose you?

You love your dog, I work tirelessly to love them too. Providing the best level of care, affection, and experience for your pets is what I do best. Being able to spend my time working closely with dogs and puppies is possibly the greatest job in the world. Each animal has their own personality and I’m incredibly enthusiastic about getting to know each individually. I’ve spent several years perfecting my role and improving myself so that I know each and every client receives the finest service they possibly can.

Do you offer any specialised or additional services?

I’m able to completely tailor the walking experience to your dog and their specific needs. If your dog is more energetic, we can devise a longer route with more activities, or shorten it to an easy stroll for older or recovering dogs. Puppy walking can be particularly challenging for new owners so I can really help out there. I can provide a dog sitting service too for when you’re out and about for extended periods.

What qualifications have you achieved?

I have a CPD accredited Dog Walking Certificate Level 3. I’ve also completed Dog Walking and Pet Sitting Courses. Finally, I’ve worked closely with several highly experienced dog walkers over the years. I’m fully insured and can provide these details on request.

The price of hiring a dog walker will depend on the area of the UK in which you live, with prices typically higher in the South of England and particularly in London. The cost of hiring a dog walker will often be lower in the North of England and in Scotland and Wales.

The most important thing when you’re hiring a dog walker is that both you and your dog trust them. You should also ensure that your dog walker has public liability insurance that covers them in case of damage, accident or loss. The best way to find a reliable and trustworthy dog walker is by reading reviews of previous clients. When you hire a dog walker through Bark, you can browse the profiles of dog walkers in your local area and read honest reviews from genuine customers.

It is recommended that a dog walker should walk a maximum of four dogs at a time, to enable them to maintain good control of each dog. Most dog walkers will give you the option of having your dog walked alone or with other dogs. Walking with other dogs will help your dog to develop valuable social skills. However, if your dog is reactive, you may prefer for them to be walked alone.
