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

Dog Walking - Caution!
These are some of the most common reasons why pet owners enrol their dogs in behaviour training, yet the truth of the matter is that these habits often have a much simpler solution. While we may not think about it often, dogs actually have a strong need for mental and physical stimulation. Believe it or not, regular dog walking can be all you need to help curb these behaviours for good while also making your pet healthier and happier.
When you hire a dog walking expert, you can actually tailor services to the needs of you and your pet. If you regularly walk your dog, you may find that you only need to hire someone to keep your pet active and exercised while you are on vacation. For many pet owners, having someone come in during the work day and just take the dog for a great walk can help keep things calm and can keep a dog from destroying the house while the owner is away.
The simple fact is that a dog should be walked at least once daily, with many high energy breeds requiring longer walks or more frequent walks. Walking does more than just burn off energy and provide exercise, it actually offers great mental stimulation. Processing all of the visuals and smells encountered during a great walk helps to exercise your pet's brain as much as its body, and the effects can have a surprising impact on your dog's mental health and sense of well-being. We all want only the best for our pets, and dog walking is really one of the best things you can do outside of proper veterinary care and quality feeding. We all need a healthy mind, body and soul not only for ourselves but also our pets.
Dog walking can offer a significant boost to longevity by helping to keep the heart and muscles active and well exercised, but it does more than this. In addition to helping add years to your dog's life, you will find that frequent walks help put more life in your dog's years. A well exercised dog will remain active and playful much longer than a pet that leads a more sedentary lifestyle. If you are unable to provide daily walks or need someone to help keep your dog active while you are at work or on vacation, a dog walking service can be a great option!
