About the Author:
I wrote this book at a time when I and many other pro dog walkers were in a battle with the city trying to maintain our professional image and reputations due to other walkers that were tainting the industry with their irresponsible conduct.
There were so many new dog walkers popping up and out of pure frustration I felt something had to be done. Also, I would often receive phone calls from people wanting my advice on how they could start a dog walking company. "Why were they calling me?" I asked myself. This is what convinced me to write a book. I initially wrote it to be a deterrent to starting a pet sitting business. I don't describe it glamorously. However, those that bought it decided to take my experiences as motivation and dive into the industry. I appreciate so much that I have had the opportunity to touch anyone and inspire someone to work at a job they love and do it in good conscience.
While this book might not appeal to everyone or be at a level they had hoped, my advice is timeless as these are my own personal experiences. For more reviews please see my website at jogadog.ca/dog-walking-book/
Thank you all for taking the time to write me. I can't express enough gratitude!

"I picked up your book last night and read most of it. VERY GOOD!!! Excellent, useful information for a beginner. Tough job though, huh? Especially for YOU in the winter. Cold Canada, but then again, NJ ain't too warm in January either. And you say that you work even if you're sick. Good idea about getting help at the park while you " sneeze. " Michael.
