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.

Dog Walking Employment

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.

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

While Away Pet Sitting

Ask any dog lover and he will tell you that a dog gives far more joy than anything else. After all, it is man's best friend. Come home after a long day of work and your canine will be at the door barking welcome even as you fumble with your house keys. Rebuke him for some wickedness and get ready for a day of skulking around with his tail between his legs. Of course, he will just be waiting for a signal from you that indicates that you are no longer mad at him. Dogs are among the most forgiving creatures in the world, and most have very sweet dispositions.


In this day and age of late marriages and even later pregnancies, many couples who want to become parents do a test drive on a puppy. As puppies begin to be treated as children and family members, it is inevitable that a demand will arise for pet services that extend beyond getting rabies injections. Pet services may extend from anything starting from dog walking to day care for dogs when the owners have to attend to other things. With dogs being left alone for long periods of time as the owners go out to work, centers providing pet services are growing in number.


Dog owners these days have even begun to farm out certain essential jobs like taking the pet for a walk. Walking the dog is an avoidable job unless one is willing to deal with dog excreta within the house. Moreover, every dog should run around a little bit, the lack of which might cause your dog health issues like obesity. Although most dog owners prefer to take their four-legged pets for walks on their own, a large number of dog owners find that hiring dog walkers is a time-saving option. If you are going out on a vacation, leaving your dog behind, it may be a smart move to contact a professional dog walker during that period. Hiring dog walkers is a far safer option than getting a neighbor to return an old favor. Hiring someone may not be the cheapest option, but at least you can rest assured that your beloved dog is getting a good walk.


Most pet service centers do a lot of things ranging from grooming to breeding to providing medical care to training the dogs. Dog training is a very essential aspect of raising that four-legged creature. Just as you would teach manners to your own offspring, you have to teach manners to your canine. There are a large number of dog trainers whose aim is to produce an army of well-behaved mutts. If you are unable to teach your dog to sit, stand, or fetch, it may be a good idea to get professional help. Different canines have different degrees of attention spans and professional trainers may be better placed to help your dog behave as well as nobility. So that the next time you have guests over, they will be impressed by the good behavior of that formerly unruly mutt.


These days there are pet service centers galore. You just have to decide what services your canine would be most likely to benefit from and then look for providers for those services.




Your dog is your best friend. If you cannot take your dog out every day, get the best dog walkers. Visit us to find out about dog walking and dog sitting services.

 

Dog Walking Services - How to Pick a Dog Walker?

Dog Care Professional

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. This has lead to a great increase in popularity of professional dog walking services. A professional dog walker should be a caring person with a great deal of experience, working with, owning and looking after their own dogs as well as other, and of course a genuine affection for the animals.


A lot of things have to be taken into consideration when beginning professional dog walking. It is always a good idea to have insurance to protect your well being, should a dog you are walking happen to cause damage to a property or even attack and injure another dog. If you are a dog walker, it is a good idea to be able to provide a full and current Criminal background check report to any potential clients as the job often consists of collecting dogs from client homes and therefore holding/carrying property keys.


In regard to charges for professional dog walking services for a single dog, some locations can warrant rather costly rates than others. However the rate of charge per dog decreases with the increase in the number of dogs being walked. Length or distance of walks also plays a large factor in cost per walk. You might want to think about offering shorter distance or briefer time walks for ageing or smaller dogs as they do not require extended periods of exercise that most other bigger and fitter dogs do.


It is highly recommended that no more than four dogs should be walked by a single person at any one time. If you were to walk five or more dogs at any one time there is the likelihood of creating a pack mentality within the group and quite a disturbance can be created between a number, if not, all of the dogs. Perhaps even more importantly, if you are walking a larger group of dogs, the chances of the walker's commands being heard and obeyed diminishes the larger the group is. All these factors have lead to a number of city councils laying down legal restrictions as to how many dogs can be walked at any given time by a single person. The maximum restriction in most cases is four dogs.


Before walking a dog you should ensure that they are wearing the correct collar and also that it is not damaged and could break during the walk or cause the dog any discomfort when the walker pulls on the lead. It is also important to be sure you are using the correct length of lead for the particular size and height of the dog to help the walker maintain full control at all times. Leads are of course a must when walking a dog down a street, next to a road or town centre, but what about in large open spaces such as fields? It is highly recommended that a dog only be taken off the lead and aloud to run free if the walker is confident that the dog will respond and obey when he or she calls the dog back.


Another important issue these days is of course picking up after the dog you are walking. As a dog walker its is your duty to pick up any poo left behind by the dog(s) you may be walking which means having a strong supply of waste bags a hand at all times. And of course after picking up the mess you should dispose of the waste in the correct manner. Many parks are now littered with appropriate dumping bins which are designed especially for dog mess.


All in all dog walking can be an enjoyable and fulfilling experience for both the walker and the dog, not to mention the relief given to pet owners who employ a professional dog walking service. Walks are a necessity in a dog's life, just as much as water and nutritional food. A healthy and active lifestyle can lead to the animal being an all round calmer, more relaxed, obedient and happy pet for the owner to enjoy.
