How one woman turned her dog-walking side gig into an elite business without borrowing a dime

Dog walkingKara Kleindienst’s business, The Barking Meter, is as high-pressure as a dog-walking company can be.

TBM is trusted with more than 100 of New York City’s most pampered and posh pups (pictured throughout this post) — dogs owned by designer Philip Lim, fashion industry pro Lauren Santo Domingo, actress Blair Brown, and a slew of other bold-faced names that can’t be disclosed.

The company turns a neat profit, employs seven people, and is responsible not only for walking dogs, but also training them and taking them to the groomer and the vet.

And it was all started by one woman seven years ago, without any venture capital.
