5 Important Reasons to Hire A Professional Dog Walker
1.Exercise The most obvious, and one of the most important reasons for hiring a walker is so that your dog can get exercise while you’re away at work. Just like for humans, regular exercise is essential for your dog’s heath. Getting regular exercise can keep your dog’s heart and lungs healthy, help them maintain a healthy weight, and keep their joints and muscles strong.
2. Behavior Another great reason to have your dog walked during the day is that it can improve their behavior. A bored dog is often a destructive dog. Breaking up a long, boring day at home with an afternoon walk can help your dog expend some energy and have some fun--and therefore make your couch cushions and shoes not look like chew toys.
3. Peace of Mind Hiring a dog walker can give you the peace of mind that your dog is being well cared for while you’re away. A professional dog walker who is experienced and knowledgeable will make sure that your dog is safe and happy while you’re at work. At Pet Waggin’, our walkers are experienced and take the time to understand the individual needs of you and your dog. Does your dog need a longer walk? Just a quick potty break? Some playtime rather than just a walk? We’ve got you covered. We keep our clients updated with text message updates, including pictures of your dog enjoying their time with us. We are willing to do what it takes to give you the peace of mind that your pet is receiving the best possible care.
4. Saving Time Taking your dog out for daily walks can be time consuming and frankly the last thing anyone wants to do after a long day of work. Hiring a professional means that your dog still gets all of the excellent benefits of consistent walks without any of the hassle. Having someone walk your dog for you means that you can come home to an already tired pal and spend your free time however you wish without feeling guilty or depriving your dog of a nice long walk.
5. Stimulation & Socialization Being alone for hours at a time is boring and lonely for our four-legged friends. Hiring a walker during the day allows your dog to get out of the house, benefit from the variety and entertainment that a walk brings to their day and enjoy having some love and attention from someone you and your dog trust.
