Pet and Dog Walkers in East Calgary

Urban life can be hard for dogs including our tail wagging friends in East 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.

Here’s a potential solution! – Why not find a local dog walker in East 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 East 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.

Vacation Without Your Dog - 5 Ways to Keep Your Dog Happy While You're Away!

 

Dog Walking In The Park

 

Dogs need a certain amount of exercise each day. Small breeds do not need as much as large breeds do, but both types need about 1 to 2 hours daily. If the dogs do not get the right amount of activity, they can become bored and mischievous. If your life is too hectic to walk your dog this amount of time daily, you might need to hire a dog walker.


A dog walker will spend enough time with your dog to exercise him properly. When the walker brings him home, he will be much calmer and happier. This will make him less likely to misbehave. Also the walks are good for his health and he gets to relieve himself, while he is out.


Some dog walkers will offer added services. They might water your flowers, pick up your mail, or watch over your house until you get home if you are traveling. The prices for their services will depend on whether they just walk your dog or do extras.


Some Tips for Hiring a Dog Walker


1 - The walker should not only have a passion for dogs, but be trained to handle them too. He should understand dog behavior, safety and handling. It is wise to find one who has cared enough to become certified in dog walking.


2 - The walker should have insurance. This will cover not only him if something happens to the dog, but also your dog. If your state or city requires a license make sure he has one.


3- Always ask for references. Talk to these people too, to make sure the dog walker does a good job. You do not want to trust your dog to just anyone after all.


4 - How well does the walker get along with your dog? Does your dog take to him right away? A canine can sense a lot about individuals, so if he shies away from the walker, this could tell you to look elsewhere.


5 - If your dog has special needs of some sort, make sure that the walker has the training to deal with him.


6 - Do you like the personality of the dog walker? You are going to be dealing with this person more than just once most likely. It will be hard to do this if you do not like his personality.


7 - Check out the prices for dog walkers in your area. This way when you interview a few of them, you will know they are charging the right prices. There might be various ways the prices are set, so make sure you understand. You want the best walker at the best price.


8 - Interview more than just one person, so you are sure of your choice in the end.


Follow these tips and you will have no trouble hiring a qualified dog walker. This way your dog will get walked as much as he should be, be well taken care of, and without interrupting your busy schedule.

Dog Walking - Caution!

Dog Walking Vacancies

Often owners of older dogs, small and large, believe that because their dog is no longer a young feisty energetic puppy and that because he/she can hold its pee for 8 to 10 hours, that it does not need to be walked as much. Many owners are also under the false notion that because they have a large yard for that their adult dog will take care of its own exercise needs.


Unfortunately often this is not the case and this can have disastrous repercussions when it comes to your dogs over all health as he/she ages. The fact is that most dogs, like humans, get lazy when it comes to exercise. Often they will opt for laying down in the sun when they are alone outside in the back yard rather than run around. Adult and senior dogs need to be motivated to get in their daily needed exercise.


Why do older dogs need daily exercise as much if not more than puppies?


The answer is that as dogs get older they tend to get more prone to injuries. Their bones and joints, just like humans weaken because of the lack of exercise. Also you pooch's joints and bones evolved over billions of years to carry a lean dog, however today's dogs often eat too much and get to little exercise they endup overweight, which often leads to serious and painful health problems like, hip and joints pain, arthritis and diabetes. This is true for large and small dogs. These are not only painful for your pooch but also very expensive in your veterinary costs.


The best way to can prevent these painful diseases is to feed your dog the right amount of high quality food and to build strong muscles, keeps joints agile by providing regular and daily exercise for your dog.


How much exercise do dogs needs?


It really depends on the breed but also how much your dog eats in one day. This includes its meals and any treats. If your dog's breed is from the Herding breed, like Collies or German Shepperds, a Sporting breed like Golden Retrievers or Cocker spaniels, Terrier breed like the Jack Russel, or Westhighland Terrier, a Working breed like the Boxer or the Doberman Pincher, or a Hound breed I recommends at least 3 brisk daily walks. These dogs need to brisk walking every day. It is also very important to let your dog enjoy a run once a day, and you can encourage your dog to run by playing games like Fetch and Frisbee.


Other breeds like the Toy and the None-sporting breeds may need less exercise, however this also depends on the individual dog, for example a Poodle or a Dalmatian may need a lot of exercise in a day and a Shitz Tzu or a Pug may need one or two walks a day. However always take into consideration how much your dog eats in a day. A Shitz Tzu may need to get as much exercise as a terrier would if it eats many treats in one day to keep it within a healthy weight and prevent any health issues arising.


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 three walks a day, you can always hire a professional dog walker. A dog walker will take your adult dog for a walk in the afternoons giving it needed exercise and a break from being alone when you are at work.


If a dog has regular exercise like group walks offered by many dog walking services your older dog will be kept fit, agile and be less likely to experience these painful health issues that are becoming more and more common in today's domestic dogs.
