If you don’t have the time to get out with your dog and enjoy walks in Greenview, don’t let your dog miss out! There are plenty of professional dog walking services in most communities which offer semi regular or regular dog walking. If your dog must be left alone for 8 or more hours per day, consider using a dog walking service, and/or enrolling them in a doggie daycare at least twice a week. Not only will your dog will appreciate the social interaction with humans and dog playmates; it breaks the monotony of their day, and gives them something to look forward to.
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.

Expert Dog Walkers and Dog Socialization.
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! Each and every dog has special qualities about them based on their breed and what they were bred to do. Some were bred to herd livestock, hunt or protect.
Dogs like humans, are social animals and need daily exercise and stimulation. Since, I have become a dog walker and owner of my own dog walking and pet sitting business, I have seen how the lack of daily exercise and stimulation has adversely affected our furry best friends. Yesterday, I took our dog Addison, who is a 7 year old labradoodle, to the vet for a check up and saw a great example of a dog that could greatly benefit from a dog walker.
I was sitting in the waiting area at the vet clinic, while listening to the vet tech telling an older couple about their dachshund that it had gained weight. Now, dachshunds have small little legs and excess weight for this type of breed is extremely hard on them. The vet tech then proceeded to tell them that their dog weighed 26 pounds. They both looked at one another and blamed each other for not exercising the dog and feeding the dog chicken and other scraps from the dinner table. Just looking at this little dog broke my heart because its stomach was almost dragging on the floor and it was panting.
This was an extreme example of how lack of exercise, over-feeding, and lack of mental stimulation can lead to your dog being bored and over-weight. Being a dog owner and dog walker myself, I realize the huge responsibility of keeping a dog healthy and happy.
All of us live very busy lives and usually mean well but, if you work long hours or can not give your dog the attention he deserves then, it is wise to look into a professional, bonded & insured dog walking company in your area. A lot of companies offering dog walking services give discounts if you have your dog walked 4 or more times a week. You just have to call and discuss your situation to see if they can suit your needs.

Since, pets cannot speak of their feelings and requirements, they can communicate easily with soft indications, which may often get unnoticed due to our busy life.
