Over the years we’ve been asked this same question many times: How would a Dog Walker benefit me? So for those who have asked, we’ve got your answer.
Dog Walkers are an essential part of dog ownership.
How many times have you been at work and you just couldn’t get away during lunch to let Sparky out? Or, you’re stuck in a late meeting and you’re worried Lucy really needs to go potty? Jackson, your Jack Russell Terrier, has so much energy that you’re starting to feel guilty that his walks are getting shorter and shorter. You’re beginning to see the common threads between all three of the above examples… YOUR TIME!
Hiring a dog walker can provide amazing benefits for your pet, as well as for you. Here are five reasons why hiring a Dog Walker can benefit YOU!
As with their human counterparts, pets need regular and consistent exercise. According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, an estimated 54% of dogs and cats in the United States are obese. Many pets will acquire specific health problems in their lifetime that could easily be prevented or diminished with proper exercise. One of the absolute best ways to keep your pet healthy is to provide 3 or more 20+ minute walks per day.
Socialization and Stimulation
Walking not only gets your dog the exercise she/he needs, but it also stimulates his/her senses. Your dog gets to see, smell, feel, and hear all types of new and interesting things. This stimulation often includes meeting other people or animals, which can be an excellent way to encourage proper socialization for your pup. As humans, we often take for granted these brief encounters and stimuli. We also can easily forget that these are frequently the highlights of our pet’s day.
Simply put, a tired dog is a happy dog. Regular dog walks helps to release excess pent up energy in your pup. This results in calmer behavior at home. With frequent, lengthy walks, your dog will be less inclined to bark, chew, bite, use the bathroom indoors, and can help with anxiety.
Peace of Mind
Hiring a dog walker gives you the peace of mind that your dog is well taken care of. With a daily dog walker, you don’t have to worry. The knowledge that your dog will be given quality time outdoors during the day also helps relieve the guilt or stress. You can feel confident that you are doing the best you can for your canine family member. And, you can rest easy knowing your dog is living a happy, healthy life, at home!
We all live busy lives, and every minute counts. Sometimes, consistent lengthy walks are difficult to fit into our schedules. We often sacrifice a lot to make sure our dogs get the care they need. With a regular dog walker, your dog still gets all of the exercise and attention they deserve. Plus, you get back a great deal of time. Everyone wins!
