Most dog owners think that the cost of dog walking is negligible, especially if they live in a city where there are a lot of dog walking services available. However, this is not the case. The cost of dog walking is actually very high and in many cases, the per-hour rate charged by the dog walking service is much higher than the cost of pet sitting. There are two main reasons for this. First, dog owners have to pay a lot of money when they hire a dog walker to walk their pet. This includes the cost of the service itself and also the Walk Inn’s or Dog Walker’s fee and booking fees. The higher these fees are, the more expensive dog walking will be for you. Secondly, if you hire a dog walker to walk your pet, you have to pay them a lot of money in order to get your pet to follow them during their walks. In other words, if you want your dog to do its own thing while it’s being walked by someone else, you have to pay more for that service than if you hired a service that does all the work for you. Overall, we recommend that you don’t only consider the price of dog walking but also its cost per hour or cost per kilometer (depending on which unit is used). In our opinion, unless you live in an extremely expensive city (with an average hourly wage significantly higher than the national average), there’s no reason not to charge more than 10$/hour.
