Book Description

This is a guide to starting and running a dog walking business, set out in a clear A-Z format. Rather than spending hours wading through a lengthy book to find useful snippets of information, everything here is quick and easy to find and explained in plain English. Please note that you don't need a Kindle to read this ebook. Simply download free software from Amazon to read Kindle books on your PC or lap top.
Starting a business can be a daunting process, but the satisfaction of being your own boss and the rewards of working with dogs are a good incentive. Being greeted by a happy dog and walking dogs on the park can be very appealing in comparison to sitting at a desk all day long. Success will depend on your reliability, attention to detail, people skills, dealing with administration, handling dogs and communicating with their owners. Walking dogs is physically demanding. You can expect to walk for at least two hours per day in all weathers. The unexpected can and often will happen. You may visit and walk puppies from 8 weeks old, walk rescue dogs, retired greyhounds, pedigrees and cross breeds.
The book contains realistic information on what to expect and the potential income from a dog walking business. Learn about what unexpected problems you may come across and how to deal with them. There are links to relevant websites where more detailed information can be found, including accounting software, where to get pet business insurance, how to apply for a CRB or Police check, download a sample book-keeping spreadsheet, get free spreadsheet software, find tax and National Insurance information for the self employed and learn how to create your own website. Whilst the book has been written for UK readers, it contains valuable information for anyone planning on starting a dog walking business in any Country. Website links and references for further reading are included at the end of the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars good but repeats it's self allot 13 Mar. 2014

Short and sweet, good book for a quick read but it repeats it self allot! I can't remember how much I paid for but it think this is an essential book for reminding you of the important bits for dog walking. Gets to the point too, very easy to read though but few spelling errors but apart from that it's ok.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good source to refer to, but quite basic 3 Aug. 2013

Read it in a couple of hours. Nothing groundbreaking that I hadn't thought of already but handy to have nonetheless, especially in alphabetical order.
