New York City and Manhattan Dog Walking Market and Revenues

Sunday, February 7th, 2016

Unfortunately there is little documented information about the dogwalking and pet sitting industry but here is our best guess relating to the new york city marketplace.

According to the dept of health there are 100,000 dogs registered in new york city and they figure that only 20% of the local dog population is registered so we came up with roughly 500,000 dogs in new york city.

Of those 500,000 we figure 200,000 are in manhattan.
Of those 200,000 we figure 50% utilize a dog walker which leaves us with 100,000 dogs being walked by a dogwalker.
100,000 dogs times an average of 8 paid walks per week equals 800,000 walks per week times 48 weeks per year when you take into account holidays and weekends. Leaving you with $38.4 million dollars. This does not include boarding or daycare services nor any services for pets other than dogs.

Pet Friendly Ice Melt Procuts

Wednesday, January 27th, 2016


Ice melt products can be toxic if swallowed by pets and cause extreme irritation to dog’s paws. Current products available vary widely in safety of use.

Tina Wismer of Aspca Animal Poison Control Center recommends a urea based product.

1. Safe Paw Ice Melter from Gaia Enterprises was an early entrant.

2. Safe-T Pet from Morton salt came on the scene in 2010.

In looking at ice melts one must take into consideration the ingredients, certain products use urea and salt which could be toxic.

Pet friendly salts are more expensive than standard rock salt, and may not be as effective at low temperatures.

Best prevention is to cover your dogs paws with booties and wipe them off with a cloth as soon as you arrive home.
