    I'm a professional dog walker, I've been doing it for several years.

    I'll NEVER walk more than 4 clients dogs in a session plus 2 of my own, makes them manageable and I can clean up any mess whilst under control.

    Whilst walking 3 dogs over Hamstead Heath yesterday, I saw a couple walking 21 dogs who were totally out of control and causing chaos, I followed them at a distance and saw them CRAM the dogs into a single van, I didn't have a camera with me but wish I had, I'd shame them!

    I heard recently that councils are bringing laws out to restrict the number of dogs a person can walk. I am not positive, but I think it is about five.
    I have two greyhounds and two whippets.

    Another law which I think should be made, is regarding extending dog leads. They should be kept locked in a short length when on pavements.
    Over the years, I have heard of four dogs getting killed, when they unexpectedly ran into a road. And just recently, another had to have a leg amputated after being hit by a car.
    I would not be able to live with myself. But - my dogs are on ordinary leads.

    I have been involved in dog welfare for over 40 years.
