I work as a kennel technician so NOT a dog walker but I'm on my feet up to 12 hrs a day with animals. Quick note to anyone whose thinking going into this kind of work - BUY ORTHOPEDIC NURSING SHOES! Obviously Lucie wasn't going to buy new sneakers for a single day but I've worked in vet clinics for about a year now and had actually managed to repeatedly stress fracture my foot before I found proper footwear! Not worth all the pain and hassle!

Ugh, choke collars are not good for dogs. I’m disappointed to see this company not only using choke collars but also during high heat. The hot concrete can hurt the dogs pads :/
Candis Carnegie (4 months ago)
This was really good and tbm (strange business name. what's a "bark meter"?) sure provides top notch dog service. IDK how they don't drop off the wrong dog inside the wrong apt. lol - - Also when dropping off a dog when you have multiple dogs do you bring all of those other dogs into someone's apt. while standing there uploading your dog walking report? I just like the fact the business owners love what they do and it shows. I think this is my fav Lucie For Hire video. Prob bc I love dogs! - - Next job for Lucie...work in an ob/gym office where she does pap smears, breast exams, pregnancy tests, touches a cervix, delivers a baby and discusses the benefits of overall women's health.

okay.. so i dog sit for 4 years now and i love it. i have a lot to say about the video. first off you dont need to teach ppl about the different leashes and collars, its not important. the owners will provide the leash and collar/harness. secondly why do you walk multiple dogs at once? some dogs dont like each other which can cause them to fight and someone can end up being hurt. what i normally do is i usually only walk 3 dogs at a time so it is easier to look after them and so they have time to walk properly and do their business. if you walk 5+ dogs then it will be difficult because one dog is gonna wanna go one way and the other dog is going another way and the leash can get tangled and if one dog is pooping and the others want to walk, ur gonna pull on the dog that is pooping leash and the dog wont be comfortable to poo. it would be better if you want to walk multiple dogs to own a van and take the dogs to the dog park and let them loose and let them enjoy their time. thats the best way to do it. other times owner will tell you that their dog is aggressive and can only be walked by him/herself. also i would not give my key to anyone to open the door and take my dog. thats just me. i have to be in the house to see who will take my dog for a walk. unless i know you very well and i trust you then thats fine. the job is not hard if you love dogs. and i love the idea of the app so the owners can write descriptions of their dog/s and what needs to be done and give feedback on how the walk went. this is really good idea if you are busy working and cant have the time to walk your dog, a dog walker is really great. i mostly dog sit and i love the dogs i cant to take care.

I wonder why a dog walker who's also a dog trainer would use prong collar which is very inhumane and cruel? It does cause pain in dogs and that is why dog trainers and people use it otherwise why would you use it?

As a dog walker in NY, this video makes the job sound like a lot more fun and money than what it actually is. I walk close to 10 miles a day and it can be grueling. You don't get a lunch break because you don't have time for it and while $15 an hour sounds like a lot, you don't get paid hourly and if you're working with a company, the boss usually takes 50-60% of your earnings. The $15 per hour is specific to the length of the walk. If the walk is only a half hour, which most walks are, you make about $8 off that walk, depending on that company's prices. If you walk 10 dogs and they're all half hour walks, you're working around 8-9 hours for $80. And that's before taking taxes out. It's not an easy job, especially if your clients are high maintenance. But I love the majority of my dogs and my boss doesn't take 50% of my paycheck. So I consider myself lucky.

I work for Wag! You get $13 plus tip for a half hour only one dog at a time but no extra benefits. Im not ready to go full time but that would be a lot of money! I only work about 3 hours a day for now. Wags cool and you only walk one dog at a time for usually $15 to $17 in a half hour. Most of your time is just getting to the owners house. I cant stand bosses or telling me when to work (I know the money I want to earn thanks) so I needed this job. I did it privately too but people didnt want to pay me as high as Wag.

For all these people saying prong collars are cruel. No they are not it depends on how you use it. For example too low on the neck can hurt the trechea. Prongs are still made and used for a reason, I have a deaf bully and I really need it because he pulls and he gets reactive when he gets scared of something or someone passing by really quick., So the prong helps me correct him and get him to listen to me quickly. Trust me a 75lb bull terrier looks scary when he freaks out. I've had a lady yell at me because she ran up to him on a walk with a hoodie and dark shades to pet him and he flipped out and she got scared and blamed me for him being the way he is. So trust me it's necessary.

I started thinking 15 an hour with all those benefits was a lot to just walk a dog. By the end, with all the drop-offs, customer notes and summary of the walk, I understand why they need those benefits. XD

All dogs are in prong collars in this video. Using choke and prong collars is not in the line with modern dog training. And with this video you're just promoting these obsolete tools to a large audience. This is NOT a pleasant experience for a dog at all, it IS painful and absolutely not necessary to teach a dog to walk nicely on a leash
Lily Clayforth (5 months ago)
I own a dog walking company in the uk. It took me two years of training and the laws seem very different here. I can only walk a few dogs at a time and we would never ever attach dogs to our belts. This is so dangerous!! I’m sure this is a great company but I’m hoping this video was exaggerated. And prong collars really do hurt and are banned under the Animal Welfare Act!!!!

Omg!! i love dogs. I wish they had a location in Atlanta!! I would sign up ASAp
Lisa Kitty (5 months ago)
The only way a prong collar works is because they hurt the dog. Its called positive punishment and it means that the handler is adding something that is painful or scary to decrease a behavior like pulling on the leash. They can also cause damage to the dog when not fitted properly and all the dogs in the video had prong collars too loose. It was also a 90 degree day and they are walking the dogs on the road which can easily and quickly burn the dog's paw pads. If this business actually runs the way they show in the video with minimal training for the walker than they really should consider a different career.

I’m a dog walker, have been for just over a year now and it’s been the best decision ever! Very early mornings/late nights some very hot/cold days but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. The joy the dogs get when they see I’m there to walk them is so amazing. Best job ever, especially when people have a puppy.

This company seems so wonderful like they really care about the owners and their wonderful dogs. I have to point out, these dogs are fairly well trained it seems, and the prong collar will not hurt them. If you put a prong on a dog that pulls very hard then try to walk it without doing actual proper fitting and training with it beforehand, yes it can be dangerous. The prong Should sit high up behind the ears under the jaw, not down on the dogs neck. This keeps the prongs at an even pressure that is fine for the dog like any other collar, then when the dog pulls it is given a quick correction with a pop of the collar that puts quick pressure evenly then releases immediately. The prongs do not dig into the neck when used correctly. There are 2 ways to attach to the collar as well, live ring and dead ring. The first time a prong is used on a dog it should be on dead ring. When the leash is attached to the dead ring the correction will not take as much slack out of the collar as when it is attached to the live ring. Attached to the live ring the correction is felt more because more slack is taken out, and is used if a dog does not respond to being on the dead ring. The handler is responsible for using the collar properly, and training the dog. It is the same principal with "choke chains" or slip collars, if you use them wrong it will hurt the dog. I have seen dogs hurt themselves on normal collars as well because they just pull too damn hard. Just hate that people don't know what they are talking about and have to be so judgmental.
