I can provide references to prove what a sucker I am. I took that dog out for a walk every day through this past winter. It gets cold in Minneapolis.Self praise is no recommendation Ed.
Danie, if I was closer, I'd do it for $5 a walk, including poop pick-up and feeding and watering.That's pretty inexpensive. I pay $13-15 per walk.. I will need a dog walker 4 times a day for at least 2 months after I have hip surgery. Even though I will be able to walk Nellie sooner than 2 months I will not be able to bend down to clean up poop and I won't be able to feed or water her. It will be expensive.
I suppose my question was a little misleading ! I walk the dogs before I go to work and when I get home ! I pay somebody £15 per week to let the pups out into the garden for a quick run to break up the day as I'm away from the house from 0700 to 1700.What is that in pounds? I'm not very good at maths.
I still dog walk occasionally for a couple of people. I don't actually charge anything because I know them and do it for fun (if you can call it that ) but they give me £10 per walk anyway. That seems to be the going rate for a one-hour off lead walk with 'professional' dog walkers, or so I have been told.
