Urban life can be hard for dogs including our tail wagging friends in North Calgary. The truth of the matter is that many of us keep pets in cramped city apartments/condos and work long hours, resulting in a less than harmonious life for our pets. In most cases the people who need a dog walker work long hours or have dogs who can’t go outside on their own.
In certain situations, dogs may even be stuck in the house with no one to check on them the entire day or, in some severe cases, have crated dog(s) the entire day. Sad isn’t it?
Dogs like humans, are social animals and need daily exercise and stimulation.
Here’s a potential solution! – Why not find a local dog walker in North Calgary, who will come pick up your dog and take them for a walk? Dog walking as a business is very popular in many areas of North Calgary, but especially in communities and cities where people can’t get home in the afternoons to let their dogs out.
Dogs were born to work!
You might be thinking, “My dog has the whole back yard to play around in, I don’t need a dog walker.” Well, the back yard may entertain your dog for a short while but, that is not what our furry friends were born to do. Dogs were born to work! Some were bred to herd livestock, hunt or protect. A professional dog walker will know exactly how much exercise your dog will need.
Giving your dog the exercise he/she needs and keeping it as agile as possible will also help your dog feel younger so you can enjoy playing with him/her longer. If you are unable to walk your dog yourself to give it the minimum requirement of two walks a day, you can always hire a professional dog walker.

Dog Walkers - Are They for You?
Dog Training Collars - A head halter gives the owner complete control over the dog. This training collar is one of the only tools that teaches your dog that you are the leader. There is no pain and owners can have a pleasant walk with very little effort.

Dog Walking Tips - Before you start your dog's tail-wagging stroll, you need to make sure you give some thought to the event. Are you walking down the street or to some other location? Will your dog be well-behaved and obedient?
Call the Department of Parks and Recreation to find locations and data on the dog rules. Some locations do not allow dogs and some allow dogs. You could be ticketed for dog violations. It is a good idea to make sure your dog tags and/or micro chip ID's are on your dog.
What to Bring on the Walk - Normally dogs do not need to wear any type of clothing or jacket. Small dogs or warm weather animals visiting a cold climate are an exception. Dogs naturally try to regulate their own body temperatures. A "pooper scooper" or "dog baggies" are essential for the expedition. Bring water for you and your dog...unless you know it is available at your walking destination. A collapsible water bowl is good idea... some dogs will not drink from other sources.
