    I have to say I am impressed by the dogs manners in a big pack. Imagine if they started moving around!

    Goodness, you'd hate to be walking that lot and be faced with an aggressive dog that's off lead!
    I know of a guy who walks his 5 dingoes down the street every day, i usually see him at Coles with the 5 dingoes tied up out the front
    I dont know his name... but everyone just calls him the 'Dingo Man'

    Impressive....but i'd be even more impressed if he could walk my 2 together at the same time LOL...I've given up on that one.

    Looks cool though.....i wonder if aggresive dog thinks "$h!t a whole gang....i'm not going near them ". One dog would be a bit outnumbered.

    I feel like such a party pooper, but that would be illegal in South Australia where no more than four at a time is allowed.

    Just cos you see it on the telly - doesn't mean it's legal or a good idea.

    I must say, I've never had to walk 10 but I'd happily do it, provided they were all well mannered.

    The most I have walked at once is 5/6. I'll have to have a hunt of any pics I have. Some dogs we walk at the moment are terrible on lead and cross over a lot so we can't walk that many on our own.

    Most councils and states have a legal limit on how many dogs you can walk at once to prevent accidents as you physically cannot control that many dogs if something does happen. I used to walk my 4 at a time in the country, bordeaux, Malinois, GSD and rottweiler.

    We live in Victoria, I don't know what the laws are here.
    He is obversely hired as a dog walker. I don't think I would be too please if i knew my dog was being walked with 9 others.
    But hey, you see all-sorts in St Kilda!

    I can't figure out what the dog laws are in Victoria - except you're not allowed to own anything that looks scary to a dog ranger.

    I suspect one tease of a cat or even a bouncing tennis ball and that pack would go to hell.

    It is a pack full of medium/large breeds in the pic. The group of 6 that I walked were mediums and smalls and I ha my husband around in case I needed a hand. We were seeing if they could all walk together properly and they did.

    I regularly walk a group of 3 weighing in at approx 90kg in total (I weigh in at 52kg). Two of them are reactive to other dogs and I don't have issues with them because I am always alert to other dogs around and use critical distance and (if I have to) strength to pull them in the opposite direction.

    I know there is a ratio of 4dogs:1walker for dog walking businesses in Melbourne. I assume that it is the same as the rest of Vic. Perhaps the dogs in that group are relaxed. I definitely wouldn't walk them in a public area like that. Would stick to dog areas, ovals and/or walking tracks out of the way.

    This is still better than one walking company I saw around my area. The guy opened his van and 9 or so dogs jumped and out and ran around like crazy. They didn't wait patiently or anything just got out and went crazy excited everywhere. No enclosed area where they got out. In fact open bush area with a walking track. Not smart IMO, given our area has the highest (and deadliest) snake count in the country. At least this guy has them on lead and they seem in control. Not the smartest move but certainly not the dumbest.
