    Hi everyone,

    I'm after some opinions please...I've run a pet care business for several years now all solo walks and we are very popular and I'm now looking at having a more eco friendly approach to dog walking ie with the products we use and not transporting dogs in cars unless in a emergency my question is do you think there is a big enough appeal for something like this? I personally have never seen the appeal for transporting dogs in cars just to take them for a walk. Does anyone else have an eco friendly approach to their business? Thank you :)

    I"m the opposite, while I only take one dog at a time, I take them on adventures rather than just walk them. This entails driving
    . Many many owners don't seem to care too much where their dogs go as long as they wee and poop, so I can see no problem with your plan in essence, though it's not something I would personally enjoy
    As a selling point I can't see it making a lot of difference as many walkers already do this without the label

    I hate the idea of my dog being shut in a van in close proximity to other dogs (who might not all get on/be happy) for ages while walker does the rounds of pick up/drop off.

    I’ve never used one but would only have a Dog Walker who did a 1-2-1 walk from my home with no need for a car journey.
