Dog Walker in North Calgary

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

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 dog walker in North 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 North 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.

Finding and Hiring a Dog Walker?

 

Dog Walking Jobs

 

There are some very important issues to address when searching for local dog walking services. Some of these are actually things a non-professional may not be equipped to handle. You may wonder, "How hard is watching a dog?" Not terribly difficult until you factor in all the "what if's". Then you're not so sure. That's why you should ask a lot questions while you interview local sitters at various dog walking services. Getting all of your questions answered to your liking will ensure that you'll find the right dog walker for you and your dog.


Here are three things you absolutely MUST ask before hiring a prospective pet sitter:


1. "What if" my dog eats something poisonous or toxic or injures his or her body. How will you handle a pet emergency like that?


Their answer will either give you assurance and peace of mind or send you screaming for the hills. When answering this correctly, they should confidently address these matters:


 



  • Find out your pet's general veterinary information or preferred animal hospital in Pasco or surrounding areas

  • Show proof that they are pet first aid certified

  • Go through a pet first aid kit with you so you can see what they're equipped with

  • Ask questions about your dog's allergies, medication, etc. if any


 


Their tone of voice should be confident and direct and you should sense that your pet will be under proficient care. This IS the life of your close friend we're talking about and you do not want to cut corners here.


2. "What if" my dog got sick? How would you care him?


Your dog's health may currently be at optimum levels but every living thing is at risk for some kind of illness in their lifetime. When a dog (or animal in general) is suffering from an illness, he or she is inactive, unsociable, and has little or no appetite at all. A professional pet sitter knows that your dog STILL needs to consume water and move their bodies in some form or fashion to build their strength during the recovery period. Below are some ideas of what the dog sitter should do in this "what if" situation:


Make sure your dog drinks water so he or she does not dehydrate and become too weak (TOP PRIORITY!)


If your dog is not ready to move just yet and there is no apparent injury, the pet sitter should comfort your dog during the visits.


 



  • Administer any medication, following the directions of the vet

  • Follow to any diet plan your dog may be on during recovery

  • Integrate some kind of movement or exercise plan until your dog is back to his/her healthy self

  • Clean up any mess created by your dog; you know it's bound to happen

  • If a Pet Taxi service is available, the sitter can also take your dog to various check ups, physical therapy sessions or the local animal hospital.


 


Many of these vital tasks must be done through out the day until your dog has fully recovered. If you're not available to perform these tasks yourself, hire a qualified professional dog sitter in the area who can help you nurse your dog back to health.


3. "What if" I leave my home for a long time? How can you make my house look like I haven't left?


Many pet sitters are happy to house sit for you while caring for your pets. When interviewing dog sitters in Pasco, ask how they can make your home look occupied throughout the day. They should cover these points:


 



  • Park in the driveway (not on the curb) so they look more like resident and less like a visitor

  • Take a walk around your property for a casual safety inspection

  • Pick up any toys or objects in the yard left out from previous use

  • Switch out the lights around the house including leaving a porch light on for you

  • Check the mail and bring in any packages or local newspapers

  • Bring in or take out garbage cans and recycling bins


 


Helping out with these light duty chores will make your home look as occupied as it usually is while you're home. A home that is active is rarely watched by potential intruders.


These are some critical questions you should ask every local dog walker while looking for dog walking services. Don't be timid or think it's rude to be this direct. They understand that you NEED to know how a dog walker will handle all of these issues before you EVER consider hiring them-- and LONG before any of these situations actually come to be.
