Carol and Christina have been running their dog walking business for the past 18 months. In this video, they tell us what it's like to undertake this role: how they set the business up, the number of hours they work, about meeting clients and the pros and cons of the job. Although dog walking requires no official qualifications, it obviously helps to have relevant experience of dog training and dog first aid. One of the more unusual features of their service, 'Out in All Weather', is that they walk dogs one at a time so that each dog gets individual care and attention. This can mean that, on some days, Carol and Christina spend many hours walking. It must help to keep them fit!
