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.

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.

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.

9 Reasons Why You Should Become a Dog Walker?

 

In Home Pet Sitting

 

For people who love animals owning a dog is an essential part of living a happy, fulfilled life. The companionship and enjoyment of sharing your home with a puppy or adult dog can be amazing. What many people don't fully appreciate are the amazing health benefits their ownership can provide. Research has proved that dog owners tend to have lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Obviously regular walking leads to a healthier lifestyle reducing weight and most importantly stress levels. It has also been found that children who grow up in households with dogs seem to have a reduced risk of developing asthma and allergies later on in life. For older people or those vulnerable to loneliness the needs of a dog and the companionship they can offer can make a radical difference to their fulfilling and well-being. The social interaction involved with dog walking can be a great way to interact with people on a daily basis.


Owning a dog can difficult if you work, have family commitments or are physically unable to exercise your pet due to illness, disability or old age. This can be a major consideration when deciding whether to have a dog or not. The main factor to consider is lifestyle and time. Canine ownership can make holidays and weekend breaks difficult. They need regular exercise; between 30 and 60 minutes per day and this can be difficult to fit into today's hectic lifestyles. With many households having all members out all day at school or work some dogs can be left for long periods.


The benefits of dog ownership outweighs the disadvantages. The balance can be tipped even further in favour of owning a dog by using a dog walking service. Using a service such as this can be very beneficial. You can own a dog guilt free, knowing you are providing adequate exercise for your pet. A dog's behaviour at home can be greatly improved by a good run about and socialising with other dogs. Stress about fitting walking into a busy schedule can be alleviated and you can really enjoy the time you have with your pet. Using a dog walking service doesn't have to be costly; just once or twice a week could make a significant difference to you and your pet. Finding the right dog walking service for you will make all the difference, a friendly, reliable service that you and your pet can really get to know and trust will make dog ownership even more rewarding and enjoyable.

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!

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.

Is it Necessary to Hire a Dog Walker?

Dog Walkers And Friends

Everything I needed to know about losing weight, I learned while walking my dog. Okay, I was walking lots of people's dogs. About five hours a day. In half-hour increments. But I lost weight and you can too!


When I left corporate America and started my own pet-care business in 2003 I had a few nagging pounds that I wanted to lose.


Those pounds were there, in no small part to the amount of 'quick food' I was grabbing between meetings, deadlines and work. You know, the doughy-sugary crumb-covered goodie you pick up when you head out for your skim latte? How about the 2 bags of chips from the vending machine when you're cranking out yet another client proposal at the expense of lunch?


I started my own business and within a month I was down nearly 5 pounds. In two months it had doubled and I was breathing easy in my 'skinny jeans.'


Why?


I was working as hard (or harder) than I had when I worked for someone else. My time was still at the mercy of the clients, proposals and all the office work that accompanied my new venture but...my business FORCED me to exercise!


I started Peggie's Pet Service focused on walking big dogs - the dogs that some folks can be intimidated by - just by the name of their breed - American Staffordshire Terriers (more commonly referred to as "Pit Bulls"); Rottweilers; Dobermans; German Shepherds and Chow Chows. As a new business owner, I was (and still am) happy to walk any dog that wants to spend part of his or her day out of the house and on a leash. I also made the commitment that there would be no 'pack walks.' What this meant was that in order to make money I needed to be walking. Every day. From 10 am to 4 pm. There were a lot of miles logged on my walking shoes that year and the payoff was a healthier body and more comfortable clothing.


Somehow all that fresh air and walking (in 100 degree humidity, torrential downpours and snow) had me hankering for quick foods that gave me energy rather than depleted it. I no longer had time for that 'after lunch lull.' As a matter of fact lunch-time was always spent on the road or on my feet - with a wagging tail beside me.


Here's what I learned about weight loss while walking dogs:


1. Have fun;


2. Every dog has his own pace (and you can too);


3. When something interesting happens along your path, stop and investigate;


4. Vary your routine (or route);


5. Meet new people;


6. Be in the moment;


7. Look forward to the walk and make the most of it;


8. Stick to your commitment - no matter the weather (I admit, there were plenty of days I didn't 'feel' like walking, but it was my JOB at the end of the day I always felt better)


9. Look forward to the treats (reward yourself when you do well!)


Wow! I was onto something! Why didn't everyone do this I wondered?


So, all of you who have added "get in shape," "lose 10 pounds" or "get fit" to your annual resolutions - think about adding dog-walking to your regimen. Even if you don't have 6 hours a day to dedicate to walking - add one or two extra walks into each day and you'll be amazed at the difference it makes. I guarantee your attitude will improve (it's virtually IMPOSSIBLE to NOT have fun with a dog on a walk!); you'll get some great cardio and you'll be creating a habit that will last a life time!


Don't have a dog of your own? Volunteer at the local animal welfare league or with a rescue group. Foster a dog in need of temporary housing ... Or work with a local pet-care company!
