What are the different kinds of jobs?”
“They have to teach someone how to walk a dog,” says Denny. “We have to teach people how to walk their dogs and educate them as to where the best people are. All dogs walk differently, so if you go down a particular dog trails for a particular type of dog you may not find the right person to walk it. This is where the training comes into play. The other thing that people may find hard is people who work for the shelters aren’t trained to walk a dog. People often don’t find the best person for their dog so that gets put off.”
The number one problem is people don’t walk the dogs. People often walk to class, work, or to catch a late-night jog while their dog is trying to work out how to be a canine.
“We’re not talking about people who are trying to get ahead or have the money to do something different about a dog’s life, we’re talking about people who walk a dog to earn their way,” says Denny.
“We have dogs that we love that we have trained for years who are in wonderful homes and very easy to work with. Most dog walkers are not trained. If you think about it, this is a very specialized type of work.”
Denny’s biggest advice to those who are considering a career in dog walking is this:
“Take your dog somewhere that it’s comfortable at all times. Most places like airports, train stations, shopping malls– those are places where they’re gonna have a dog come in. Don’t assume that your dog’s home. I’ve had people come to me asking me, ‘What should I do with my dog?’ And you can guess where I’m going with this…”
– “Take Your Dog Out”
“The truth is that I feel like I’ve been doing this a long time,” says Denny. “I feel very lucky to be doing it this way.”

The most important rule for anyone with a new book in progress is always: Don’t change what you’ve written. And in any big new development, changes are required to get things done on the page. I remember years ago when the idea behind our new “A Song of Ice and Fire” novel — “A Game of Thrones” — came through
