NYC Dog Runners uses a dog running method recommended by veterianarians and dog trainers. We start your dog off slowly and let their body gradualy adjust to the pace of a long run. All of our runners are well trained, bonded, insured, carry water with them and run the dogs individually!

They charge $30 for 30 minute runs and $40 for 45 minutes. No word on what they pay for a 20-miler, fartlek, track workout, or hilly trails.

$60/hr is a pretty solid wage. That’s something like $120,000/yr for someone running 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. One could almost live in Manhattan near their dog clients on that salary.
