"PROFESSIONAL DOG-WALKERS" Argentina Local Custom Tip by swesn

Argentina Local Customs: 99 reviews and 82 photos

  Professional dog-walkers collecting the dogs
by swesn

I am not sure if they exist in such abundance in other countries but here in Buenos Aires, everyday, I saw at least one such dog-walker.

People who do not have time to walk their dogs would enlist such a professional. The guy can have up to twelve huge dogs tied to his waist as he careens down the streets. Quite a sight!

With the dogs, come the poo on the streets. No, they do not clean up after their dogs.

While Buenos Aires had enchanting cupolas at the top of some corner blocks, I do not suggest always staring skywards when you walk. Watch out for the poo.
