40 Fun Dog-Walking Business Names

Updated on February 5, 2017

Dogs need to go to the bathroom just as humans do, and just because a human has to go to work all day, it doesn't mean that the dog magically no longer needs to go to the bathroom. So, either the human needs to install a doggy door somewhere, or hire someone to talk their pooch on a walk during the day.


Walking Dogs for Money

With the need for dogs to do their business, comes the need for a dog walking business.

This is definitely the type of job that requires having a really big spot in your heart for dogs, because being a dog walker is not always a walk in the park; sometimes you’ll get the kind who love to go after that pesky squirrel that just ran across the street. If they're tethered to you, it will quickly become a battle of strength.

Dogs have bad days just like people do, so if you can handle this and accept it, all you will need to get started is a car and a leash, capisce?

Unless you plan on boarding dogs, this is the type of business that can be run out of your home; so when you're not out walking, you can work in your pajamas and set your own hours.

Naming Your Business

Oh, and let’s not forget about a solid business name. Every business needs a name, but what are some good dog walking business names?

As long as the name makes sense for the type of business you are running, pretty much anything goes.

You don’t need a super professional sounding name because it’s not a suit-and-tie operation, unless you want it to be! For the most part, you can have fun with the name.

Here are some pointers:

  • All things dog: It is a dog walking business, so use anything that is related to these sweet, little furbabies in your business name.

  • Use rhymes: This is particularly great for mobile advertising such as lettering on your vehicle, and can help someone to remember the business name after just a quick glance.

  • Be transparent: Make it obvious in your business that you walk dogs. Leaving one to wonder just what you do, no matter how awesome a name you have, might actually drive a potential customer away!

Now it’s time to start brainstorming. Your best bet is to begin by making a long list of names that you can then narrow down later. Brainstorming is literally writing down everything that comes to mind.


Things to Consider

Have a list made? Great, now it’s time to start getting down to the nitty gritty! Take a look at these tips in order to narrow down your list:

  • Make a list of local competitors’ names and avoid any names that are similar.

  • Check the business name with your state’s Division of Corporations to see if anyone has already incorporated the same name.

  • Check for web domain availability at Whois.com.

  • Can the average person pronounce and spell the business name without problems?

Going through the tips above, begin crossing out names on your list and you will narrow it down to the ones that would really be good for the business. The dogs will be walking you before you know it!
