Dog Walking and Pet Sitting services in your own home have many benefits for you and your pets. Let’s face it, the economy has us all tightening our belts, but the one expense we refuse to cut back on is the care of our pets.
We may be buying cheaper shampoo, but “Princess” is still going to the groomers once a month. That’s how it is for us pet parents. If you love animals then you can also donate charity and save pets’ lives.
Dog Walking Services:
You are probably asking yourself, “Is hiring someone to walk my dog everyday worth it?” The answer is yes. If you are gone for 10 hours a day, like most of us are… think of how your dog must feel for those 10 hours. Daily scheduled walks benefit the dog in many ways, not the just potty breaks.
Dogs require outside stimulation, exercise and socialization. Without these basic needs, your cute little Pomeranian can turn into Cujo.
Working dogs or “high energy dogs” really benefit from dog walking services. I’m owned by a Siberian Husky, more like a Werewolf than a dog… and if she doesn’t get her 1 hour walk everyday… I am looking at a level of destruction that would rival Chernobyl.
As long as she has her walkies before I go to work, she is fine. This also helps our training re-enforcement. Huskies pull, that is what they do… dogs that pull while walking make the whole bonding experience less than desirable.
Hiring a professional dog walker to work with your dog on pulling issues and basic commands, really helps you! Consistent training that professional dog walkers offer makes YOUR walks with your pet much more enjoyable.
Overweight dogs are highly susceptible to Diabetes. If your veterinarian suggests more exercise and a dietary plan for your dog, a professional pet sitter can greatly contribute to your pets well being through additional exercise as well as helping you track your dogs progress.
