Do You Have a Dog Walker?

Most of you have admitted to taking your dog on walks for 10 to 20 minutes a day, but I know some people don't have the opportunity or time in the day to take their busy friends on walkies.

Have you ever hired help to keep your dog healthy and happy when you're stuck at work, on vacation, or too busy to give him the cardio he needs?

I walk Stella at lunch and at night, my brother walks her in the morning. But I do have a dog walker for times I can't come home at lunch.

My dad will go over to my apartment to take Viva out if she's home alone for more than 4 hours, but no regular dog walker for us.

I used to have a dog walker for when my dog was younger and I was at work. Now I take him regularly to day care so he plays there at least twice a week and I take him on walks when I get home.

I used to have one when I lived in NYC but I don't now.

I do have a dog walker and it was the best thing I ever did for Cuba, he loves her to death. My job changed so I work longer hours and it has given me a chance to go the gym in the morning. Plus Cuba is so much happier the 4 days a week that Ally comes.

I've hired someone when I was on vacation. My dogs stayed with my mom (she calls them her fuzzy grandchildren) but since she's not physically able to walk them herself I paid someone else to do it.

When I lived in an apartment, I always walked Buster at least 2 times a day. We now live on 1/2 acre, and he runs and runs. He loves the freedom, the only draw-back is when I do retrieve his leash, he knows it off to the vet for him!

Dog walkers remind me of King of Queens, only she walks Arthur, the old man. :] My pups like to run on their own, since I have 8 acres they are free to run around as they please. Well, As long as someone can watch them!

I've never had to get a dog walker, because Newton goes to daycare while I'm at work, and if I have to go out and Newton can't come with me, he goes and hangs out with Axle at my parent's house.

No I've never used a dog walker, but I've looked into becomming one! I enjoy the walks with the pups and I feel strongly enough about walking dogs that I would walk other peoples for them!

Nope, no dog walker for us! I am a strong follower of Caser Millans ways and like he says, the dog walk is VERY important to both the physical and psycological make-up of your animal. So I want to walk my pup myself :)
