Featured in Real Simple

Real Simple MagazineI am very happy to report that and have been featured in the upcoming July 2011 issue of Real Simple magazine. The magazine should be on newsstands in the next few days (and/or will be delivered to your mailbox).

The topic of the article in which the sites were discussed was the Summer Tipping Guide. I was asked what I thought would be an appropriate tip for dog walkers and dog groomers, and based on some insight shared by and listed businesses, I was able to provide some information for the magazine to share with its readers.

I do think tipping is appropriate for dog walkers and dog groomers, and it’s not just for Christmas tips either. I don’t think a dog walker needs to be tipped after every walk, but I do think if a dog walker helps a dog owner out at the last minute, takes care of a dog for an extended period of time, or generally goes above and beyond for the dog or dog owner, he or she should be tipped.

Hope some dog owners read the article and offer tips to their dog walkers.
