Professional Dog Walkers’ Guidelines

A group of leading animal organisations have joined forces to release a set of guidelines to ensure high welfare standards in the unregulated profession of dog walking.

Dogs Trust, Pet Industry Federation (PIF) and RSPCA all worked together to produce the Professional Dog Walkers’ Guidelines in a bid to ensure the best welfare for dogs who are being walked by professional dog walkers employed by their owners, as well as to assist the dog walkers in meeting the requirements of the Animal Welfare Act.

I have attached a copy of the Guidelines here for you to read.
