This is very sad for dogs, they are just like children and if they spend too much time alone they tend to become depressed and their self-esteem lowers. Therefore, I thought I could spend some of my free time as a dog walker. I study in the mornings and have free most of my afternoons, so I started promoting this service with flyers and by speaking directly to the people I saw accompanied by pets.
It was a bit difficult for people who didn’t know me to trust me and leave their pets with me. This is something normal when people don’t know you, so I started talking to my neighbors and friends of friends who lived nearby and could give me a recommendation. This is how Lucas, Tobie, Candie and Mechas came along, my new children, I would pick them up every afternoon and take them for a walk, this served as a distraction for me and was a way to have a job that would economically help me with my studies.
One must know about pets and understand them, they need time outside to socialize, gain confidence, motivate themselves and keep good health. At the end of each afternoon, I would return them to their owners and they would notice how the animal was happier, they would be more affectionate and it would fill the owners with satisfaction.
“…It was a saving grace for me, since I live alone and my pet is my sole companion, and I couldn’t bear the thought of leaving it locked up and bitter while I was at work. Luckily, this is no longer a problem…”
I love my job, I enjoy what I do, I know people who share this love for animals and since I became a dog walker my days and my clients’ days have changed, because I provide love to their pets and I have slowly gained their trust. Now they recommend me to more people and I’m having new children to take care of every afternoon. If one day you see me walking with 5 dogs in the park, join us and we can take a walk together.
