Dog walking business

Dog walking business

If you like dogs and you like walking, you can start a business that includes both. A dog walking is very new. It didn’t exist 10 years ago. The first thing you must know, is that you cannot have some very good profit. If you already live in a city, then you can do it. Also, you will need a big car, because you must take dogs and walk them in interesting places, that are often far away from their homes. Before you start, you must think about: how many people have dogs in that area, how many of them have a full-time job and what is the economic situation in that area.

Beside a big car, you will need: different sizes of collars, leashes, poop bags and scoopers. All of them you can find in your local pet store. More important is how much you should charge to your clients. If you are too expensive, nobody will hire you, but if you are too cheap, clients will think that you are not a good option. The recommended price should be $15-$20 per dog for a 20 minute walk. You should adjust your price depending on the area where are you working. Also, you should make 10 visits in 5 days. If you want more, you will be exhausted!

In some areas, this business requires a permit, so before you start, make sure to know everything about the law in that area. On the other side, you don’t need a lot of advertisement. All you need to do is to print business cards and several flayers. The best advertising is one that your clients say about you. So, try to be very good at your work.
