    Very insightful video! We’re thinking about making such a platform and are indeed seeing what you mention.

    I started pet sitting first and then I started dog walking. I started walking a family friends dog and I’m pet sitting her too. She is a good dog. I hope to get more clients. I put flyers in vets and grooming places. I’m hoping to pet sit and dog walking full time.

    I appreciate this vid! I’m currently employed by a dog-walking company in my city. They do all the work of scheduling, meeting clients, advertising, etc–they just tell me when and where to show up to walk the dogs and I get a flat hourly rate pay. It’s almost always the same schedule/same dogs too, which is nice. For now I like this arrangement, but I sometimes think about doing Rover because I can probably make more money hourly.

    I love Rover. The 25% is worth the marketing they provide.

    I’d be interested to know what insurance you got on your own.

    Hello, I was wondering if you started your own business what kind of pet insurance/ liability? For your own business?

    I’m at this point. I didn’t bother with WAG because it ended up being $12 per walk and if a client hired you outside of WAG they charged you $500+ so read the fine print. In the beginning I built my business through Rover but have my own insurance and now that I pay $50 per
    month to google for local ads I get so much more business. I do have to have my own website. Wow I didn’t realize the reputation of Rover was bad! I will be seriously considering this for the new year.

    I really appreciate this video! Thank you for the sincere experience. I wish success to everyone who is starting something new or who “works” with what makes their heart beat faster for love.

    The customer contact section at 6:00, since you have to see the customer in person to transfer the dog, that right there means the customer can choose to contact you personally any time.

    I currently live in Dallas and the app has been more difficult to use than before. It doesn’t give you exact distance have to put it or eyeball it and then you have to accept the walk BeFoRE knowing expectations etc. it’s so hard to even get a hold of wag customer support
