From the Author:


A dog walker's job, focus, and service is very different than a pet sitter's, and the hours are much more conducive to stay-at-home parents, students, and retired persons. The bulk of a dog walker's work happens between the hours of 10am and 3pm. However with puppy-care, and a 3x per day schedule, you'll be starting a bit earlier and finishing a bit later. Dog walking is also a great way to supplement a dog training business!

Dog walking is a Zen-like business model, provides a steady predictable income, and your customer base is much, much larger.

Dog walking is for the most part recession proof. American households with dogs have increased exponentially. According to the APPA pet-related spending in 2008 will likely exceed $10.5 billion. We aren't going to get rid of our pets, and we aren't going to stop working and commuting. Therefore dog walkers will still be needed, even in a down economy.

About the Author:

Dog walking pioneer, J.D. Antell owned and operated one of the north shore's most successful dog walking business for over seven years. He is the founder of dogzanny.com a comprehensive online resource devoted to helping professional dog walkers and businesses get started and operate successfully. He is an honors graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology with a BS in Film & Television production. He spent his early career producing and directing award-winning national TV commercials, shows, and videos in the Denver area before returning to Massachusetts.

After giving the television industry its due, J.D. decided to embark on an entrepreneurial journey, opening one of the first dog walking business in the north east. During that time both he and his wife, Eileen, immersed themselves in the business, learning valuable lessons along the way. They eventually expanded to offer dog training services after years of working with dogs and training their own German Shepherds under the guidance of many experienced trainers and handlers.

J.D. spends his spare time sailing and boating or volunteering with the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary. Currently he is working on three new writing projects and consulting dog walking business owners nationwide.
