Podcast Episode 111: Post-Corona Dog Walking with Dani Pedraza of Big City Woof Walker

In this episode, I’m talking to Dani Pedraza who runs a dog walking company as well as a popular Instagram feature account. We talk about how she uses her large following online to help raise awareness for pet adoption. And in light of everything going on in the world lately, Dani talks about how she and her business partner are getting creative to find ways for their dog walking business to generate income online.

How to Use Instagram to Grow a Dog Walking Business Online

Dani Pedraza is a Certified Dog Trainer, the founder of the loveable @pupsncoffee Instagram account and an owner of a dog walking company called “The Big City Woof Walker”. In 2016, her life became all-things-dogs when she created @PupsNCoffee, and began hosting adoption events around New York City to raise awareness and donations for animal shelters. Her passion and love for animals, especially dogs, inspired her to become a professional dog walker. In 2017, she established the “The Big City Woof Walker” which is a woman-owned dog walking and pet care company serving clients in New York City and Chicago. Their mission is to focus on “dog walking with a personal touch” to create strong bonds and companionship between the walker and your pet.
