I don’t need a dog walker! Or do you? Part 2 – the benefits to your pet and YOU

In Part 1 – we spoke about the myths associated with having or not having a Dog Walker – now we look at the benefits.

Happy dog = Happy Family - Newmarket Aurora

Happy Dog = Happy Family

Benefits to YOU

  • Peace of mind knowing your dog is getting the physical exercise it needs as well as the mental stimulation.
  • Your dog will not be bouncing off the walls when you get home desperate for attention and desperate to get out and do their business.
  • Reduces risk of you having to take your dog to the vet for injuries and illness caused by lack of activity and being over-weight – including bladder, urinary tract, kidney, respiratory or joint problems.
  • Happy dog = Happy pet parents. A bored dog can become destructive and barky; a dog that gets a mid-day walk is much less likely to be bored and more likely to be better socialized and well behaved.
  • A well socialized dog is welcome in more of your friends and families homes.
  • NO STRESS – if you get stuck in traffic, or the train is delayed you may have other things to worry about but you won’t have to worry about your dog. You’ll know that they have had a visit mid-day and will be fine untill you get home. Or, you can call us and ask us to go over to let them out again and give them dinner.
  • Re-enforcement of training techniques – we work with you on your pets training. Walking provides routine practice for using basic commands such as “heel”, “sit”, “stay”, and “come”. (Dog walking is NOT a replacement for proper basic obedience training. We only support the dog’s established training through repetition.

Benefits to your Dog.

  • Regular exercise to ensure good physical and mental health.  A dog at its ideal weight is likely to live 2 years longer than an over-weight dog .. YEAH!!!
  • Better behaved because it’s not longer a bored couch potato.
  • Exercise improves a dog’s muscle tone, eliminates the risk of illness or injury caused by inactivity and carrying around too much weight.
  • A break in a long day waiting for their family to come home.
  • Opportunity to relieve themselves. Yes they maybe “able” to hold it, but that does not mean it’s good for their bladder, urinary tract or kidneys.
