How much would you expect to pay for a dog walker to come by once a day mon-fri? Looked at one near me that charges £6 a day for a one hour walk, it seems a bit steep?!

I pay £17 for a one hour walk and £34 for day care - this is in London and is on the more expensive end of the spectrum. However you do tend to get what you pay for - the local dogwalkers who charge £10 per hour take them for about 20 mins on lead around the local common (they charge for travel time too) whereas the guy I use takes them for a minimum of an hour's off-lead romp in some lovely places (I've bumped into him plenty of times when I've been going for a walk to know for sure!) and ddog is out of the house for at least 3 hours

The cheapest I've seen is £8 for an hour. (I'm nowhere near London)

I pay £8 an hour for 2 dogs to get an hours walk - no travel time included. In the south but not in a city.
