Okay so maybe we're being a bit biased. But the truth is, hiring a dog walker can provided amazing benefits for your dog,as well as for you. Here are our top 5 reasons we believe hiring a dog walker is incredibly important:
Dogs need regular and consistent exercise to live long, healthy and happy lives. According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, an estimated 54% of dogs in the UK are obese. Keep your pet healthy by providing 3 or more 20+ minute walks per day.
2) Socialization and Stimulation
Your dog gets to see, smell, feel and hear all types of new and interesting things when out for a walk. This stimulation often includes meeting other people or animals which can be an excellent way to socialise your pup. As humans we can easily forget that these are frequently the highlights of our pets day.
Simply put, a tired dog is a good dog. Regular walking helps to release excess energy in your pup, resulting in calmer behaviour at home. With frequent lengthy walks, your dog will be less inclined to bark, chew, bite, use the bathroom indoors etc.
4) Peace of Mind
Hiring a dog walker gives you peace of mind that your dog is well taken care of, even when you aren't at home. With a daily dog walker, you don't have to worry as much if you need to stay late for work, or if your dog doesn't completely "finish" when you take them out in the morning. You can feel confident that you are doing the best you can for your pup, and that your dog is living a rewarding, happy life.
We all live busy lives and every minute counts. Sometimes, consistent lengthy walks are difficult to fit into our schedules. We often wake up extra early, head home for lunch hours, and delay making dinner for our families in an effort to make sure our dogs get the care they need. With a regular dog walker, your dog still gets all of the exercise and attention they deserve, while you get back a great deal of time.
