Simple gestures in life matter to us the most. Dogs also feel that. Taking your dog for a walk is just one of those simple gestures in a dog’s life.

Dog Walking Off-leash

The number of households with dogs is forever increasing, and for many of these households finding the time to take the dog out for the daily walks it needs is sometimes understandably too much to cope with. For many dog owners, having a dog walker come in during the work day for a great walk can help keep many dog related behavioral issues in check .

While we may not always think about it, dogs actually have a strong need for mental and physical stimulation. Believe it or not, daily regular dog walking may be all you need to help curb nasty behaviours for good while making your dog(s) healthier and happier. Dogs are pack animals and need social interaction. They love meeting, running, playing and socialising with other dogs and dog walkers. Most dogs need an average of 30-60 minutes of mental and physical stimulation daily.

If you are struggling trying to juggle work, a social life and exercising your dog adequately then hiring the services of UrbanPet.Life will give you peace of mind.

When you get a new puppy or dog you need to house train your dog. Often owners might think that if they adopt a dog who was supposed to be house trained get a rude awakening when the dog goes indoors.


What you need to realize is that dog's do not generalize situations like humans. Just because a dog was house trained in one house does not guarantee that the dog will know that the same rules apply in the new house. That is when it is important to retrain the dog, this is what dog trainers call "Going Back To Kindergarten."


The good news is that your dog will learn faster the second time around since the dog already has a concept of going outside.


It is a common practice for new puppy owners leave their puppy at home with a potty mat for the puppy to potty on when they go to work and can't return to let the puppy out at the appropriate time. If you are going to be gone for the whole day this is a kind thing to do, since puppies cannot hold their bowels for long but at the same time it works against house breaking your puppy.


When you leave the puppy with potty pads for the day and your dog goes on the potty pads it is learning that it is OK to go inside your house. To believe that you can go back to training house training when you get back home is an illusion.


This gives the dog or puppy mixed message, it takes longer to house train your dog or puppy and since your puppy or dog is being reinforced to potty indoors when you are away you can expect the dog to have accidents in the house. Do not yell or punish the dog when this happens, it is not the dog's fault it is just doing what you taught it to do... go indoors when you are away.


For best results and to quickly house train any dog our dog should never be given the opportunity to go in the house. This way the puppy or dog is always reinforced by relieving itself outside as well as by you or another person taking the dog to pee outside.


You can do this easily by confining the dog in its crate when you cannot give it 100% of your attention to make sure the dog doesn't go indoors. and when its time for the dog or puppy to potty take him/her outside and when the deed is done lavishly praise and reinforce the puppy with treats and play.


But what happens when you have a puppy who cannot hold its bowels until you come home?


For this you can always ask a friend or neighbor to visit your puppy and let it out to potty, if you are 100% sure they are reliable. If you do not have any one you can rely on you can also use your local dog walking services.


Your dog walker will come to your house to pee and poop your puppy at the appropriate time. This way, the puppy will always get reinforced for going potty outside. This will strengthen your house training since the puppy will never get the chance to potty inside the house therefore, it will only learn that its good to go only outside.


Your dog walker should always reinforces puppies and dogs with praise, food, play and loving attention, making your puppy house training experience a walk in the park. Be sure that your local dog walking service does the same.
