If you do a lot of public walks and your dog doesn’t get injured, it might be cheaper to get one that covers your whole dog, not just your lead weight. A permit to do public dog walks (or public walking with your dog) is cheaper than applying for your own private dog walker license. However, there may be other costs that are not covered by a permit.
You must also be licensed before doing public dog walks. Do not purchase your own private dog walker license, but you can get one from your neighbors or other walkers and then work on your own.
When is a permit issued?
Dogs must be licensed to do public walks in New York City on the opening day of a public dog walk.
How long must I wait in line?
Permits to do public dog walks are valid only for one week, and must be returned after that week’s close of business. Do not wait until the end of the week or you have to go out and get a new permit.
My dog ran away from me! Will someone have to clean up my mess?
No! Any business that cleans up after a dog walker (even if they don’t clean up the mess themselves) is covered under the City’s Animal Control Fee. Do not write a letter saying “I am cleaning up an abandoned dog, but I do not want my dog to be paid” – you are not covered by this fee.
What should I do if a dog runs away?
If your dog ran away from you, you may contact the Sanitation Department. If it is a puppy or young dog, call the Adoptions & Foster Care department (718-947-0270), and if there is a family dog, call the Animal Cruelty & Vandalism section.
Should I have a written contract with my dog walker when I am leaving the park with my dog?
Yes! You and your dog walker must sign a written contract so that the dog walker can keep you updated about your dog’s activities. Your contract must be posted at the park you are walking with your dog.
Can a non-veteran dog walker walk my dog?
No. You must be a licensed dog walker if you want a permit to pick up your dog from your home. If you want a permit but a non-veteran can’t do your walk, ask him for permission
