Commercial dog walkers

Register as a commercial dog walker

We encourage commercial dog walkers who use Edinburgh's parks and greenspace to sign up to a code of conduct and register their details with the Council. By complying with the code of conduct, commercial dog walkers can reduce their impact on the parks and other users, set a good example to other dog walkers and deliver a safe and quality service for their customers.
