Calgary Inner City Dog Walkers

Urban life can be hard for dogs including our tail wagging friends in Calgary’s Inner City. 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.

Dog Walking Vacancies

 

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 Calgary inner city dog walker, 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 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.

Pet Services

 

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 Walking Can Keep Your Pet Healthier and Better Behaved!

 

Dog In Park

 

Many people consider their pets as a family member. A pet dog has to be given attention, and this is a time consuming activity. Sometimes a dog owner is not able to give adequate care due to a job, traveling schedule or distant other commitments. There are a number of dog care agencies that provide the solution in such situations. A dog owner can easily locate the addresses of dog care agencies in their area from the newspapers, Internet or directories.


Dog care agencies offer services such as pet sitting, house sitting and daily dog walks. Some agencies provide a service of daily emails to the owner to give messages on how the dog is doing. Dog care services typically employ pet sitters who are pet lovers and provide the best care and lots of love and attention.


Many of these great services will visit your home and care for your dog. Services include providing your pet with fresh food and water, bathing, brushing and walking. The agency will also give medications and vitamins to your pet, and arrange for medical treatment in case the pet has a serious illness.


Some pet care agencies offer special packages that make it easier to accept shorter notice reservation requests for periodical care at home. In such cases, the pet care agency requires two sets of the house keys. One set is picked up at the initial visit to an owner's home when the sitter gets acquainted with the pet. The other is held for emergency situations when the regular sitter cannot make it to the owner's home for some reason or other.


Most pet care agencies offer quality standards and professional service. They have a veterinarian, available on call twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. If the veterinarian available is to far away from your home, the agency will assist you in finding one closer


Dog care services go a long way in helping a pet owner feel comfortable about leaving their dog in the hands of someone who truly cares and knows how do take care of animals.

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!

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.

Running At An Off-leash Park

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.

Dog Walkers And Friends

Dog walking as a business is very popular in many areas, especially in towns and cities where people can't get home in the afternoons to let their dogs out. Dog walking appeals to many young people who may have some extra time on their hands and who are in good physical shape for walking dogs.


In most cases the people who need a dog walker work long hours and their dogs may be indoor dogs who can't go outside on their own. The dogs may be stuck in the house with no one to check on them all day or, in some cases, the dog may be crated. (Some dogs may have to be crated if they chew and destroy things in the house when they are left alone, for instance.) A dog walker can be in great demand in these circumstances.


If you are interested in starting a dog walking business there is not a large initial outlay of funds. You will need to be sure that you are insured, especially for the loss of one of your client's dogs or in case a dog that you are walking should bite someone. You can check with Pet Sitters Associates, LLC and Pet Sitters International regarding insurance. You do not have to be a member of Pet Sitters Associates, LLC to purchase insurance through them but you do have to be a member of PSI in order to purchase insurance.


You will also need some basic office supplies (even if you don't have an office) such as an appointment book and perhaps business cards. You may also want to have some invoices or sales receipts for your clients.


You should probably write up a simple contract to use with your clients. The contract should explain what your services will be and how much and when your clients will pay you. You may be able to find similar contracts already on the Internet.


Before you begin accepting clients you should also check to see if your state requires you to get business license. You should also talk to an accountant to see how your business should be set up financially. Finally, you will need to call your state's Department of Revenue to find out if you will need to tax your services. If you do, then you will need to pass these taxes on to your clients and report the taxes to the state each quarter.


If you plan to have other people working for you then you will need to be bonded. This will protect you in case someone working for you should take something from a client's home.


You can determine your rates by finding out what your competition is charging. In the beginning you will probably want to charge a little less in order to try to encourage customers to give you a try. Dog walking is usually charged according to time increments. You may also offer a monthly discount for people who sign up for an entire month from you in advance.


You may want to consider doing some advertising. This will help increase your business. At the very least you should put up your business card in vet offices, groomer salons, pet supply stores and other places where dog owners tend to visit. You should also consider writing up a press release about your new business and sending it to the local newspapers. Finally, it's a good idea to create a nice web site about your business, especially if you can create one that looks good.

 

Why Hire a Dog Walker?

Dog Walking In The Park

A dog is regarded as the best friend to man. It appears that taking care and managing them is a simple and easy task. This is not the case when the pet owners have family and work matters tend to consume a lot of time. It is important to note that taking care of the pets can be a tough task and therefore there is a need to hire an experienced dog walker.


If you are a responsible pet owner, then you are aware of the benefits associated with taking care of the pets. Pets need daily walk so as to improve their health. If you do not have enough time or even energy to engage your pets in their daily work, then consider hiring a professional dog walking service company.


Most people love dogs, but due to the tough working schedules it becomes rather difficult for them to exercise their dogs by taking them for a walk. Research has revealed that when a pet is left at home alone and inside its small caging it will have bad health due to depression. Therefore dog walkers can greatly improve the health of your dog. This will at the long run make your dog and enjoying being around. It can be true to say that a happy pet equals a happy owner.


By hiring a professional dog walking company, pet owners should be rest assured of having their pets getting regular exercises even when they are away. It is important to note that all dogs need a given amount of simulation so as to remain active. The outdoors offer stimulating sound, smells and sights which are not available indoors. When the dogs walk naturally, they get an opportunity to be happy and healthy. When a dog gets more energy it can keep running and jumping around your apartment or compound.


Trained and qualified dog walkers can ensure that your dog is getting the much required social experience. Just like human beings the dogs are also social animals and therefore they need to go around. Bored dogs have been reported to be destructive and hence cause a lot of damage. Having your dog walking with other dogs creates a sense of simulation, exercise and companionship.


Pets that undertake regular exercises are very easier to manage and also very restless. A barking dog can become a nuisance to the neighbors. It is the duty of the dog owner to develop a plan for the dog walking.
