It seemed to be of great surprise and amusement to the presenters of a Sunday morning news program this morning, that you would part with £250-£300 to have a certificate in dog walking.
“I mean…..dog walking !! Who doesn’t know how to walk a dog? ” One presenter scoffed.
True ……who doesn’t know how to walk a dog , relatively easy task…isn’t it?
What might be over looked here, is that qualification will provide reassurance and peace of mind to pet owners that their dogs are in the best possible hands.
The course covers first aid, dealing with emergencies, legislation, as well as practical skills.
After all….would you just let anyone go off with your dog/ family member?
Or would you know what to do if your dog over heated and collapsed?
Or got bitten by a snake?
Never underestimate what seems the most simplest of tasks !!
