A Guide To Hiring A Cork Dog Walker: What You Need To Know

What Does A Cork Dog Walker Do?

There are quite a few options when it comes to dog walking services and it really depends on your own preferences and your dogs which you decide to opt for.

At Pet Sitters Ireland all of our dog walks are solo walks. So we don’t group lots of dogs together and take them for a walk, we do solo walks where your dog gets one on one attention. Unless of course you have more than one dog – then we are happy to walk them together at no extra charge up to 3 dogs.

Your dog walker will take your dog on its normal walk, pick up their poo, have fun with them and of course send you a message to let you know they are ok with some great pictures of them out on their walk.

Why Use A Cork Dog Walker?

Our customers use a Dog Walker for all sorts of reasons.

  1. They are busy at work all day and need someone to come and let them out for walk and toilet break.
  2. Maybe they are away with work, their family have agreed to feed their dog, but they need help with walks.
  3. Perhaps they have recently injured themselves and need help with walks.
  4. Or perhaps they just want their dog to have more walks than they are currently getting.

Whatever the reason it doesn’t matter – we can be there for 20-60 minute walks (or more if you need it)

How Does A Cork Dog Walker Keep Your Dog Safe?

Your dog will be kept on the lead at all times for their own safety. Even if you dog has the best recall we can’t guarantee they will come back for us, so it’s always best to keep them on a lead.

We only walk in areas that you normally take your dog and we would never let them off lead in a Dog Park.

We also don’t do group walks where your dog is mixing with lots of other dogs that they don’t know.

If we can keep your dog in their normal routine as much as possible it means that they will enjoy their walks and you will know that they are safe and happy.

  2. What is their experience walking dogs? Are they able to handle different sizes/breeds of dog (depending on your needs)
  3. Have they been in business long? You don’t want be constantly looking for new dog walkers.
  4. Do they have insurance for their business? This is important if you are letting them into your home.

  8. If you want to cancel your dog walker who do you tell?
