Professional Dog Walkers Have A Secret Language

Did you ever wonder what professional dog walkers said about their clients—both the dogs and the dog's owners? Well, neither did we...until we saw this clever "Walkie Talkie" chart in today's New York Times.  The author divides his "secret language chart" into the following categories: Types of Dog, Equipment, Technique, The Biz, and Clients, with examples of dog walkers' code language for each category. For example, an "N.D.F." is a "Not Dog Friendly" dog, "Belly Rub Tax", describes "The extensive petting a dog demands before it is prepared to get up and walk", and to describe clients who are fans of the Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan, the code word is "Cesaritis".

 I've never had a dog walker, professional or otherwise (just Parental Unit and one friend), but I have no doubt these folks have lots to chat about...in code, of course!

Hmmm. I think I'd be called a "Puller" or "Marker". What about you?

We never really thought about it before, Bocci. We'd definitely be called pullers too!

Love ya lots♥

Never have had a dog walker either but food for thought. Have a marvellous Monday.

That's hysterical. We have had some really wonderful dog walkers, especially the man who took care of Pip during the last year of his life. Pip didn't like to go on walks much, but he would still stop by and visit him while we were at work during the day.

I live for my walks, and if Parental Unit was for some reason unable to walk me, she'd have to hire someone. We hope not to ever be in that position because Parental Unit (if I may speak for her) loves our walks, too!
