Professional Dog Walker: What Do They Do?

Have you heard the saying, “It's not where you walk, it's who walks with you." ? Let’s show extra appreciation to the one going the extra mile each day to walk with our four-legged friends. Did you know that Wag! , the app connecting dog owners to dog walkers, started the Dog Walker Day holiday in September of 2016 to give appreciation to every dog walker?

So what exactly does a professional dog walker do? Do they just walk your dogs or is it more than that? If you love spending time with dogs then you might want to consider becoming a professional dog walker after reading this 😉

Let’s get into details 🚶‍♀️🦮


Exercising with dog

Walking is a form of exercise but more than that. You must be able to have complete control especially when you’re walking several dogs. With the combined energy, you and your four-legged friends will keep a healthy and happy vibe. Both you and your dogs will benefit from this exercise.



Yes! Walking a dog has its perks. You get to play or do a lot of fun things pawgether (pun-intended 😂) Whether you play frisbee, catch the ball or more! But don’t forget to clean up after a furbaby's potty or poop...

Spend Time

Not only do you get paid for your work but you get the best “tip” which is spending time with these pawesome BFFs or best furry friends like watching the sunset together or watching a movie.

At the end of your day, not only did you walk the dog and make a new furry friend but you also helped the fur-parents run their errands. Don’t you love how these smiles warm your hearts?
