first thinking of staring a dog walking group, we weren't sure if this is something that could work in such a crowded city; besides all of the planning we might do within our group, there are just so many external things we can't control.
While we were still figuring things out in the beginning, we quickly realized how important it was to have walkers in the group, walking without dogs. And the idea of the "Dogless Walker" emerged. Here are some things our Dogless Walkers do to keep the walks successful and low-key for all the dogs.
