I'm in the south east (not London) and I'm looking for a dog walker at the moment and just wondered what a normal amount is for me to be paying? Thanks for any answers

£12 an hour, North of M25. That is for private walk not group walking.

I use daycare but have seen prices ranging from £10 for group walks up to £20 for solo walks per hour.

I'm a dog walker. Going rate here in the Midlands is £10 per hour for a group and £15 for solo.

There's a big difference in the services provided though. Some put several dogs loose in a Car, others use a crated van. Some walk a max of 4 dogs, others walk a lot more.

It's well worth choosing your walker carefully.

Hope that helps.

I am a dog walker and charge £10 an hour but I am in the north so I guess you are probably looking at more like £12 an hour in the south. I agree with the advice to be selective about the walker that you choose. Get to know them and ask questions about their skills and experience. I am first-aid trained and insured with good experience and references, that is the kind of thing you need to be looking for to make sure that you are getting a good service for your money.

£8 for an hours walk, in reality he is out the house from 9am to 11:30am as they take them to spaces where they can get off lead for the whole time.

£14 for day care, £18 for day care + overnight with 2 hour long walks.
