Why is walking a dog so important?
Socializing your canine companion with a dog walker and other canines is very important and should be started as young as possible. By being away from it’s home, a dog will learn social skills and manners around other people and dogs. In doing so, it can help prevent certain aggression problems later on.
Regular and daily dog walks, even if the follow a predictable path, will enliven your dog!
Dogs that do not get a change in the environment frequently enough can become depressed. A depressed dog can develop anxiety which can lead to behavior problems. Believe it or not, regular and daily dog walks, even if the follow a predictable path, will enliven your dog! It will be using all of it’s senses to its fullest ability thus exercising its mind as well as its muscles.
All dogs need exercise every day, even the smallest breeds need to have a daily workout of their little legs. The larger a dog is, generally the more exercise it will need. There are working breeds, however, that are deceptively small but needs loads of exercise. A qualified dog walker can properly assess the amount of exercise required by your dog or puppy.

3 Good Reasons to Hire a Professional Dog Walker!
If you are a resident of Calgary and you own a puppy, then you need to know about keeping your dog happy. Simple gestures in life matter to us the most. Puppy's also feel that. Taking your dog for a walk is just one of those simple gestures in a dog's life. But, how do you do that and juggle a busy schedule as well. It is common for most dog owners to fail to even give the animal a pat and worse off a walk. Walking is the best way to exercise and keep a dog healthy. If you have no time, then get the services of a dog walker.
The dog walker does not have to live in your area to give it a walk. As long as you give the person a call, they will come to your home and collect your dog. Your dog can take a walk to the park or nature walks. Wherever your puppy goes, it will enjoy being free. There are different kinds of dog walking services that are available. There are some dog walkers who offer individual walks. This means that only your animal is taken for a walk and there is more attention given to it. The dog will enjoy being spoilt just like you would. There are other puppy walkers who will take several from different homes at the same time. Well, good for your dog. A puppy is a social animal, so it can get to be with other canines and may even pick up good habits from other.
Giving the dog some exercise is not the only benefit the dog will get from dog walking. The dog will also get the much needed and essential training. The dog will learn how to behave on the leash when it is out in public. As a dog gets used to the leash, it will tolerate it better. There are other simple commands that it will learn which are essential for good behavior. It will also learn how to behave when it meets other dogs. You do not want your dog to be aggressive and attack other dogs. Generally the behavior of your dog will improve.
You should always think about what your puppy's needs are. If you are working, then you will almost never get time to take the dog walking. You will probably get stuck in traffic when you are supposed to take your dog for that needed walk. Even if you work at home, you will need to do the housework, take the kids to school, and do the shopping and the laundry. By the end of the day you are too tired to be lugging a dog around. Dog walking has been gaining a lot of popularity amongst dog owners. It will be pretty mean to your puppy if you do not call up a dog walker to take your for a date.
Finding and Hiring a Dog Walker?
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.
