Dog Walker Job Description

A dog walker is a person who walks, feeds, and cleans dogs that are cared for by people who live out of the home.

Dog walkers often provide their services via word of mouth.

They may list their services online, in newspapers, or in neighborhood publications.

They may also create business cards for potential new clients.

A dog walker experienced with caring for various breeds of dogs will be higher in demand than one that only works with small dogs.

A dog walker experienced in walking dogs in neighborhoods that run alongside busy streets will have an easier time finding clients than one who works in a neighborhood that has few sidewalks.
