That’s why it’s so important that you ensure you receive a bespoke dog walking service that suits your dog and fits around your work and private life.

Dog walking and more

While walking your dog is often the main service that dog walkers offer, many of them offer extra services for your pup, such as dog training, feeding, grooming, and transportation. Bark is the best way to ensure you find the best dog walking service in York, including all the great extras. All you have to do is tell us what you need and we’ll provide you with free quotes from the most suitable dog walkers in your area.

A bespoke service

Most people need a dog walker because they are unable to walk their dogs themselves. Whether you have work commitments during the day, or you’re physically unable to walk your dog due to old age or disability, Bark can help you find the perfect dog walker who understands your needs.

How do you build trust with your customers?

This is a good question and one of the primary concerns of many people in need of a trustworthy dog walker. It’s completely justifiable too; we are essentially strangers who need access to your home to take care of what is basically a member of the family. I have built trust and great relationships with my client base over many years. I have strict agreements regarding security with all of my customers, especially regarding house keys, lock boxes, and contact details. Every client and their dog is different, so responsibilities naturally vary – but I always maintain the highest level of professionalism. This is evidenced by my current client base but also obvious when you look at my customer reviews and star rating on my Bark profile. It’s a great way to provide transparency in this line o

Where is your favourite place to walk the dogs?

It’s hard to say as it all depends on the customer's location, plus different dogs love different walks. Rawcliffe Park is one of my favourites as the River Ouse runs alongside it, which is great for dogs that love the water. Hob Moor is fantastic for athletic dogs with lots of energy, as they have plenty of space to tire themselves out. Sometimes a short walk by the old medieval walls near York Minster is all the dog needs. It’s all about knowing what each dog likes.

What’s the maximum number of dogs you can walk at any one time?

The most dogs I have ever walked at any one time is six, but I doubt I’ll be doing that again. I typically draw the line at three or four, so I can give each dog my full attention. If by chance my customers live close together I might take several dogs out at the same time, but I generally like to keep each customer and their dog(s) separate. Not all dogs are comfortable around other animals or in other people’s homes, and I respect that.

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.
