How much should I charge to watch a dog overnight?

It is common to charge a dog a flat fee. Many of us go to the dog park to watch their favourite pet.

However, charging a flat fee when we can find a suitable location for our furry friends would be a good idea.

Weighing up the cost of watching out for our dog can be very expensive. We’ll also need to be sure our dog is fed and watered and can spend as much time in the sunlight as possible.

Remember, though, that a well-trained dog is the best guardian!

Why the wait at home?

The wait can be a bit embarrassing in the early days of a pup’s training. So before you go for a walk or playtime, make sure you’re in for the ride as calmly as possible and give your pup the very best start in life!

Keep in mind that we are dogs and so we need to behave like our furry friends are.

Your dog is now ready to be walked without your interference from behind. Be sure to greet them enthusiastically with a warm, friendly welcome and a friendly ‘hello’ – and if the dog is new, it could be better to walk gently and softly for a few moments, trying to ‘stake the territory’ rather than trying to take it.
