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.
