A lady who does a doggy daycare sent me this guys number as he is looking for a dog walker a few times a week. She phoned me with his name, I call and he starts laughing and goes that's not my name. I said I'm sorry that's what she had told me. He then kept saying you know, umm, then goes right Christina. I thought I told you my name when I first called and you can't get it straight. He sounds very rude and arragant to say the least. He said he would call back to make arrangements to meet the dog. He goes tomorrow, I work in the afternoon when he said he was free. He then got real rude, I don't make a lot of dog walking I do it for extra money obviously work other jobs.

If he's that much of a jerk I wouldn't work for him. He might be a jerk and not pay you.

I think that guy was very unpleasant speaking to you. It was a shame he spoke in a rude way to you. I know you do the dog reading to earn a little extra money. I had a dog walker and carer for my dog Secret when he was a puppy and I was teaching full time. He became a friend of mine and even though I have moved areas I still stay in touch with him. When I was a teenager I used to walk five dogs. I got some pocket money for doing this. First I took two of them out and second I took the other three out. I don't think you should work for that rude man. There are nice customers you could choose to work for instead.

if that is the way he is going to act then you don't know that you need this type of person in your life and as you said you dont make alot of money what is to say that he would even pay you for your time and service

Maybe he just has one of those annoying / unpredictable personalities, but either way proceed with caution. I'm at the brink of just saying no forget about it myself and I'm not even the one doing the dog walking. Though really the meet and greet will be a better impression of who he is.

He sound like someone you should not even socialize with . He is trouble and if he act that way now , you can only imagine the way he will be little later . I would encourage you to avoid is drama issues .

Maybe there are some crazy guys out there, no matter where you work. I have to tolerate this big black guy at other department who always make joke about me. For the work sake, I simply have to tolerate him and sometimes I simply walk away. Life always like that, some crazy people out there.

If you can, just drop him and let someone else do the job for him. He's not worth the pain. If he can't be professional now, you are not sure if he will be in the future.

Go for another job. If this guy gives you so much problem now, you will wonder if he will ever pay you if you walk his dog. He is not the only dog owner in the world. There is no need for him to be arrogant.
