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.

Tips on Hiring a Dog Walker!
Dog Training Collars - A head halter gives the owner complete control over the dog. This training collar is one of the only tools that teaches your dog that you are the leader. There is no pain and owners can have a pleasant walk with very little effort.

These collars can cause permanent damage to structures of the neck and cut off airways. Your dog may be well-behaved and trained to wear a conventional collar and or a harness. You may also be comfortable with a sturdy retractable leash.
Dog Walking Tips - Before you start your dog's tail-wagging stroll, you need to make sure you give some thought to the event. Are you walking down the street or to some other location? Will your dog be well-behaved and obedient?
Call the Department of Parks and Recreation to find locations and data on the dog rules. Some locations do not allow dogs and some allow dogs. You could be ticketed for dog violations. It is a good idea to make sure your dog tags and/or micro chip ID's are on your dog.
What to Bring on the Walk - Normally dogs do not need to wear any type of clothing or jacket. Small dogs or warm weather animals visiting a cold climate are an exception. Dogs naturally try to regulate their own body temperatures. A "pooper scooper" or "dog baggies" are essential for the expedition.

Dog Information - How to Find a Good Dog Walker?
Dogs are man's best friend, it's true, but they need attention throughout the day. They need to be let out, fed and exercised. Chances are though, that you are busy during that daytime Mon-Fri at work, so what happens to your best friend then?
Why not find a local dog walker, who will come pick up your dog and take them for a walk, even when you can't. Many pet sitters also offer Dog walking and puppy / Doggie day care service. The walk may be either one-to-one or there may be group of dogs depending on how the dog walker works, so you'll need to check this when speaking to them.
Puppy Day Care
However some dogs need more attention through the day, especially puppies. Do you want to come home from work to find your best shoes all chewed up or do you want them fully entertained including feeding, exercise and attention, then puppy day care may be something to look into.
Dog Visiting or Dog Sitting,
Alternatively perhaps your dog doesn't need as much company, but does need to be let out, fed or medicated a couple of times a day while you're out. Pet sitters usually offer a visiting service where they pop in to your house to check on your dog, for short periods during the day. They can give your dog some attention while carrying out the care you've requested. They can also carry out a few small housekeeping jobs like cleaning up little accidents, picking up the post, taking the bins out. All of which should be discussed in advance with you sitter.
So which is the best option. Well that's just a matter of preference for you and your best friend to decide on.
