Did you know?

*Each year there are over 10,000 dog walking accidents

*1.2 million dogs are killed on the roads each year in the United States. (Source: https://petplaygrounds.com/1-2-million-dogs-hit-cars-every-year/) 

*Dog walkers are hardly ever trained or vetted 


Ask yourself this: 

*Does your walker know leash basics?

*Does your walker know harness basics?

*Does your walker know how to act around children and other pets?

*Does your walker know how to handle an elevator (which can be dangerous)?

-Pet Shield USA takes walkers through an extensive dog training seminar without online videos, quizzes, and a text to pass at the end.
