Hello,
I've been looking at the Internet for like an hour now trying to find a website where I don't have to pay 35 dollars a month to find a dog walker. terrible.. So I am trying it here
I am looking for a dog walker (18 and older) to walk my 2 dogs, beginning JUNE! Tuesday till Fridays around noon. (5-10 dollars a walk)
If someone is interested or knows someone in Colorado Spings, that would be awesome.

If you could find someone in your own neighborhood that would probably be best, as I can imagine the gas prices have increased the fees of anyone who has to drive to get to your place. There seem to be a lot of people advertising on Craigslist, so you may try that if you have not already. Go to the Services, Pet section.

I'm curious about this market. Are places charging a membership of 35/month to try to find the dog walker?

It sounds like you are offering 5-10 per walk (with both dogs going I'm assuming), 4 days per week, so 20-40/week. I don't live there yet, but if you lived in the same neighborhood as me I'd probably do it. Too far to drive from another state

I just love dogs and enjoy walking them. I'm sure you'll find someone who feels the same.

It also may be a good way for a responsible teen to earn some money if they're home from school at that time. The only problem is they're not insured or bonded which most professional dog walkers are. Would look w/in your own neighborhood b/c as beezle1 mentioned, w/ gas prices escalating, it might be challenging getting a dog walker for less than what you anticipate (I dont even know as $5 is realistic for 2 dogs but it may be doable).

Default Dog Walker

I live in the Peregrine area and am available to walk dog(s). I also have a 13 year old who is always looking for ways to earn extra cash and we ADORE animals.
