Those who do allow you to walk their dogs currently, why don't you ask them if they'd be willing to write letters of recommendation for you to keep on hand. Also, tip, never forget to carry business cards with you. If I had been in his position, I'd have said no as well because it's a little fishy.
I have a lot of positive referrals who really trust mr with their dogs. Hence, we go on hikes just me and the dogs independently.
