Set Your Services
Determine the services you would like to offer, such as group walks, solo walks, or a combination of both.
You also need to think about how long these walks are going to last and what kind of activities you’ll provide such as playing fetch.
It’s important to note that if you are going to be offering activities on walks, you must have consent from the dog’s owner especially when it comes to toys that could become a potential choking hazard, so be sure to communicate your services clearly to potential clients, so they know what to expect.
It’s also a good idea to have a contingency plan in your back pocket. The weather is unpredictable so make sure you have back up plans if it’s too wet, too cold or too warm to head outside.
Finally, think about whether you’d want to bundle your dog walking services with any other pet care activities such as training, or pet sitting. By offering more than one service you can easily increase your revenue.
