Unfortunately, this is one of those markets that isn't deeply investigated. Partially because it's hard to pinpoint the number of dogs in an area, and even harder to figure out exact numbers because there is no census for dogs. This means there is no singular database that we can find that information on.
There is a good site, however, that gives you an idea on how to figure out the census counts for dogs in a particular area. If you'll follow this link: http://www.pawsdogdaycare.com/Start-Up-Services/Dog-Daycare-Demographics.htm , it'll give you the step by step process to figuring it out for any area you like.
I hope this helps.
I can understand your frustration....sadly, there's no such thing as a database that lists all the dog walkers in a particular market.
