Would you hire a dog walker?

Posted by Kieran on October - 5 - 2020

A dog is a very popular pet in the UK. Almost half of the population own a pet and 25% of the whole popular own at least one dog.

During lockdown more and more people decided that they had got the time to look after a pet and so decided to get a dog but with some now returning to work, it may mean that dog walkers are now needed to get the pup out of the house.

It is not a good idea to leave a dog on its own for a long time. If you work long hours then you should try and get someone to pop in during the day to at least let the dog out in the garden if not take it for a walk.

If you do not have friends or family that you want to ask to do this then you can pay for the services of a dog walker. There are a number of different types of dog walkers, some do it as a proper business other may be doing it just to earn a little extra money. You need to check if the dog walker is insured if that is something that would bother you as if anything happened and for example the dog got injured in their care, you may find that you are responsible for any verts bills or damages.
