Presented by Claire Staines


This presentation will cover all aspects of dog walking. Is dog walking for you? It appears to be an easy way to earn a living but there is more to it than meets the eye. Not only do you require good business skills but your customer service has to be personable as well as professional. The presentation will include topics such as setting up, transporting and walking groups or individual dogs in a safe, fun yet stimulating manner while ensuring you follow the Pet Professional Guild’s code of ethics to help set a standard in a growing industry.

Webinar Objectives

  • Give a better insight into how walks should be structured to ensure a stimulating and fun experience.  Helping minimize risk factors for the safety of the dogs, dog walker and the general public.
  • When to say no, not to the dog but rather assessing whether the dog will benefit from group walking or is perhaps more suitable for solo walks.
  • Keeping a good client base.
  • Maintaining professionalism. 
  • Flying the Pet Professional Guild banner is not just about training.
