Hi all,

I'm fairly newly-moved to Gothenburg with my partner, hoping to enrol onto a course at Gothenburg University. In the meantime, it would be nice to earn a bit of additional money. I love dogs, and I see a lot of people in our area with them, so I'm thinking of offering some dog-walking services.

Anyway, I'm just wondering if anyone here has any experience with or knowledge of it. Is there a known organisation I'd need to join, or is it something I could just start doing myself with some leaflets for people's postboxes, etc?

Cheers all.

Hopefully someone will chime in with first-hand information. I know some of my swedish colleagues use a hunddagis (dog day care), were you drop your dog during the work day and they're walked and looked after.

I googled a local one in Göteborg, and they seems to offer dog-walking as well. http://www.silvertassen.se/prislista.html
And I also found the website for an individual that does dog walking here: http://www.doggiewalker.se/en
She doesn't mention any official training or certificates, but does say she's fully insured.
So that's some evidence for it being a thing. I don't really have answers for you, but maybe this will help your research a bit.
