Your questions would be answered by your base of customers. You can't ask me because you're not walking my dog! I think more people might contact you with a lower price, and by having more people giving you 5-10$ it would add up faster than walking one or two dogs at 15$. You have to keep in mind, people are fanatics over their dogs and by hiring someone to walk them they are taking a great risk, I would be paranoid my dog would be taken to be sold as dog bait for fighting rings (currently happening in my city).

Alright, thanks. So I think I might just charge an overall fee, not by time. But I am going to charge by the size of the dog. Not by much, though

Laki, I was going to say that sometimes fibromyalgia doesn't get taken as a proper diagnosis because it isn't exactly known what causes it.

All I can say is that you only have to feel my mum's muscles when they are playing up and causing her pain to know that it is real.

Yeah I don't like how extreme many German shepherds are becoming. It's not just American dogs though. German show dogs are becoming extreme in other ways.

What I hate most is being told that my dog Eos is too small by people we meet on our walks. The German shepherd is not supposed to be a massive dog much as some breeders might want you to think. Females are only supposed to be a maximum of about 60cm at the shoulder. Eos is about 1cm below that so hardly a dwarf.

When I was reading up on it, it seems a lot of doctors (based on not knowing what causes fibro) believe its in the minds of the sufferers. They by no means suggest the patient is making up their pain but tend to first send them to get bloodwork and then meet with a psychologist. Fibro is more prevelant in women than men. I want to be prescribed medicinal 'grass' but being a teacher I don't know how well that would slide. Maybe in Colorado or Vancouver :p

You're having tire problems left and right, Yuuie. Hope Pat's tire isn't going flat too.

I would charge s flat fee. Sometimes if people know you they'll pay good to make sure you're taking good care of their dog. One of my neighbors paid $20 a day when they were out of town. They didn't care what I did as long as the dogs were happy. I walked them twice a day and let them out 5 other times in the yard. I gave medication and treats, too.

Well, I think I'll just be walking dogs. I changed my fee to accommodate for the neighborhood.
Small dogs-$5
Medium dogs-$8
Large dogs-$10
This is an overall fee, oh and only $5 for every additional dog.
