This is an essential service and a lot safer than all the current business 'that are operating. Easy to socially distance at the end of a lead.

I am getting calls from clients expressing concern for their dog's regression in behaviour that we have been working hard on to ensure a safe and balance dog in society. If we don't get back to our clients soon, these dogs will potentially become a hinderance to society due to their behavioural concerns. Professional workers do more than just walk dogs. We train them to be stable animals within our society.

Thanks for adding your voice.

We can't let this pandemic destroy small businesses!! They should be given support. Dog walking companies won't increase the change of spread, if anything they are likely to reduce it (1 or 2 people looking after many peoples dogs instead of all those people going out and about). Plus they are usually away from people so definitely social distancing.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I'm a dog walker in Melbourne whose business has not qualified for any of the Victorian business supports during the months of not being able to operate and earn a living

Thanks for adding your voice.

It’s so important that dogs can mix with other dogs for many reasons.
The dog walkers “pickup and return at a safe social distance “. The benefits to pets, and owners are insurmountable.
