Popular Dog Walker Searches

In the last 30 days, DogWalker.com has seen OVER 5,000 visitors! People visit the website to find a dog walking service in their area, and DogWalker.com allows them to search for dog walkers in their city – and sometimes right in their zip code and neighborhood.

In addition to dog owners who are searching for dog walkers, there are also dog walkers who visit the website to see what it’s all about. DogWalker.com is not a lead generation service. Once a dog walker signs up, there are no additional costs or expenses. One question I am frequently asked is what cities in which people are looking for dog walkers.

Below are 15 most frequently searched cities in the last 30 days on DogWalker.com:

  1. New York City Dog Walker
  2. San Francisco Dog Walker
  3. Chicago Dog Walker

DogWalker.com is #1

Picture 1

If you want to have a successful dog walking service and allow clients to find you online, your website will need to finish high in the results of the major search engines. Otherwise, your company won’t be seen. DogWalker.com currently ranks #1 on Google, Yahoo and Bing for the search term of “dog walker!” In addition, it ranks right at the top on Google and Yahoo for the plural search term “dog walkers!” Not too shabby for a website that has been online for under a year.

Listings that come out at the top of the search engine rankings are the most likely to be clicked on by potential customers, and they are the best way to make sure that your dog-walking business gets noticed. This area used to be a relatively small niche, but now the arena is exploding online.

You can use sponsored listings so that your company will appear at the top of search engine results, but these are usually listed off to the side, not in the “general” results. They will be clicked on, but sometimes people who use search engines a lot have a tendency to click on the “natural” results. There are companies available online who can assist you in handling all your needs as far as set-up, management and reporting of results with pay-per-click advertising.

Regardless of the type of business that people are looking for online, you want them to be led to your site, if you offer what they need. But most websites are simply online brochures, if you don’t have high search engine rankings. To push your business to the top of the search results will enable you to transform your site into a hub for business. It will also tactically position your site to generate more sales for your company, as compared to other types of advertising.

If you don’t want to use sponsored listings, you’ll need to use the services of a company who can position your website skillfully in the top order of the “natural” listings. They will use keywords and key phrases that describe your business and services, so that more people will click through to your site.

Since DogWalker.com ranks so well in search engines, we get a lot of traffic. In fact, we’ve received well over 6,000 visitors in the last month alone! A listing on DogWalker.com can help bring your company business, and just one new client a year with a few walks will probably pay for the listing.

How to Find a Local Dog Walker

If you’re looking for a local dog walker in your area, DogWalker.com will have listings for people who offer this service locally. This is just the starting point of your search, though. You will want to speak to some of the local dog walkers, and check on their level of experience before you hire one.

Many people consider their dogs as part of their family, and if they are leaving on a trip where the dog cannot come with them, or if they are just working late for a few nights in a row, they will want their best friend well taken care of. After you find the names of dog walkers in your area, be sure you ask for their references, and call previous customers, if their contact information is available, to find out if they were happy with the service by the person or the company you are looking into.

Dog walking sounds simple enough, but your potential dog walker needs to know how your dog is accustomed to being walked – on a harness, with a choker chain, any information that is pertinent to them. They will also need to know the best place near your home to take your dog walking, perhaps a local dog park. And it’s a good idea to have someone meet your dog before they walk him, to make sure there is a good chemistry between them. This may take some time, but it’s worth it, so that you’ll find a suitable surrogate for times when you’re not available for your dog.

Walking is a healthy way for your dog to exercise. You can hire a dog walker for a set period of time per day or per week. Most people prefer that their dog be walked twice a day, and you may want to check and see if your dog walker will also feed and water your dog and clean his crate or kennel, if he has one. If nothing else, make sure the dog walker provides plenty of fresh water for your dog. Most reputable dog walkers with do this, just relying on common sense. Check up on any potential dog walker before you hire one, to be sure your dog will be safely and properly treated

References, References, References!

Personal references are often the most important thing when it comes to dog walking. Although there is an element of trust any time a person hires someone for services, a dog walker is responsible for what some people consider a family member, and sometimes a dog walker will also have access to an empty home. References are critical, especially when it comes to trust.

Suggestion to Dog Owners:

When you are looking to hire a dog walker, ALWAYS ask for personal references, and call the people whose numbers are given as references. Make sure it’s not a friend of the dog walker or someone who is posing as a reference. Ask questions about how the dog walker interacted with the dog, the person/company’s timeliness, whether the dog walker is trustworthy, and other questions that will make you feel comfortable or look elsewhere. This is a member of your family that will be entrusted with the dog walker, and the dog walker may have access to your personal belongings in your home when you are not there.

Suggestion to Dog Walkers:

When you have a good working relationship with a dog owner, you should ask if that person can be a reference, and if so, what information can be provided to potential clients. You’ll want to make sure the person will be able to answer questions about your services honestly. Have a list of these references on hand, which will enable you to provide these references in a timely manner.

Top 5 Reasons to Become a Dog Walker

Here are my Top 5 Reasons to Become a Dog Walker

5) Work as much or as little as you want, during the hours you want to work. You can find clients who need to have their dogs walked at all hours of the day. Choose the times that work best for you.

4) Your dog walking business can grow into a dog taxi, dog grooming, dog sitting, or other dog-related business if you so choose. If you love walking dogs and have the desire to grow your business, your customer base is established, and you can provide more services.

3) Walking dogs all day is a fantastic way to get exercise. Instead of coming home from work and hitting the gym, you’ve probably burned off more calories after a day walking dogs than you would have by going to the gym in the evening.

2) Instead of working inside under the florescent lights of an office, you are outside all day in the fresh air. Sure, it may rain or snow once in a while, and winters may be cold, but it sure beats working inside year-round.

1) You get to be around dogs all day!

How to Train Your Dog to Not Bite the Leash When Walking

Leash TrainingLeash training is often one of the most difficult parts of training your dog. Dogs love to bite on leashes, as they make great chew toys for teething dogs, and it can be annoying for a dog owner or dog walker. However, this is a problem that can turn serious if it is not taken care of quickly, and it can go on for an extended period of time if a young puppy isn’t leash trained.

If you (or your dog walker) use a nylon leash, dogs can sometimes chew right through the leash and break it when walking. Below you will find some helpful tips for training your dog to not bite on the leash while walking.

First of all, consider purchasing a different kind of leash. If you typically use nylon leashes, try using a metal chain leash for a while. Dogs won’t chew on these, and if they try, they will realize that it is not possible. This may break your dog’s habit of chewing on the leash when walking. You can also purchase a heavy duty nylon leash to ensure a dog biting the leash doesn’t rip it.

Spraying sour apple spray on the leash where your dog bites it is a tactic that may also work for you. Most dogs don’t like this spray and it will keep them from biting the leash. This also works on other household items that your dog might bite as well.

The best tactic is to work with your dog to get him to stop biting the leash. Each time he starts to bite the leash, stop walking and get your dog’s attention. Let him know that that is not appropriate behavior. Reward positive behavior with treats and praise.

When our dog bites her leash infrequently, we will drop the leash and step on it, not moving until she drops the leash. Once she lets go, we resume our walk. We continue to do this until she understands it’s not appropriate.

Your dog will eventually learn that biting on the leash is not an acceptable behavior.

Why Dog Walkers Are Often Pet Sitters

Pet SittingI’ve noticed that many dog walkers who advertise on DogWalker.com are also professional pet sitters. It seems that many professional dog walkers, or even those who simply walk dogs as a hobby or for some extra cash, enjoy pet sitting as well.

This is largely because the qualities one needs to be an excellent dog walker are the same (or similar) to those that one would need to be a good pet sitter as well. The best pet sitters are often dog walkers because the training and qualifications for both jobs are so similar, and it is easier to get business for pet sitting from dog walking clients, and vice versa.

To be good at their job, dog walkers must truly enjoy being around dogs. They must know how to handle pets, even when they are being difficult, and they often have to have certifications or training and receive professional recommendations. Most pro dog walkers have insurance and bonding, knowing it’s a critical part of owning a company. Additionally, dog walkers usually invest a great deal of time in marketing and spreading the word about their business in order to attract clients.

All of these skills and qualities are necessary for a pet sitter as well. A pet sitter must know how to work with animals and must have training and credentials in order to attract clients. Often, individuals will participate in both of these occupations because the skills are so transferable, and because a client base for one job can be easily transferred to the other. This is why so many dog walkers offer pet sitting services as well.
