Whether you’re tasked with walking the neighbor’s dog when they’re out of town or a professional dog walker, it’s important to understand and practice the baseline dog walking requirements. After reading this article you’ll be able to get a head start on the dog walking path to success.
As a dog walker, walking other people’s dogs you can expect many of your friends or customers to have their own preferred collars, leashes, and supplies. You shouldn’t show up ill-equipped though, below is a list of supplies you, the great dog walker you are should show up with.
It’s important to understand the temperament of the dog you’re walking. Before your walk be sure to chat with the owners to gain an understanding of how their dog interacts with others. If you encounter other dogs on your walk be courteous and ask if you and the dog can approach. This will prevent any aggressive issue from either dog from happening.
If you’re walking during the summer months be aware of the heat. Concrete and walking surfaces can become very hot and harm the dog’s feet. If you’re walking in the cold, the same applies for ice and packed snow.
Having a few treats on hand can encourage productive behavior from your dog and make for a happy walk for the both of you. Check with the owners first if it’s okay to use treats as positive reinforcement.
Pulling or jerking on the leash is actually counter intuitive, doing so can make the dog pull harder in their direction. Instead, use verbal commands and praise. Doing so in a happy, cheery voice is a better solution and offers positive encouragement for the dog.
Well done! You’ve successfully made it to the final steps.
If the dog got dirty in any way be sure to clean them up before entering the house.
Walks are stimulating and tiring for dogs, be sure to give them the opportunity to hydrate and if it lines up with their normal feeding schedule give them time to eat before you leave.
Check with the owners either before hand or after if there are any requested closing instructions. Things like giving the dog a treat, putting them in the kennel or a specific room, and locking up on your way out.
