Dog Walking Benefits
A daily dog walk provides your dog with exercise and, of course, a potty break. But there is another reason why a daily dog walk is so important, ancestral instincts. Dogs need to walk, wild packs start off their day by walking to find food and water. A daily dog walk fulfills this instinct.
Dog Walking Reduces Stress
Running in the backyard or a trip to the dog park is great exercise, but it is not a substitute for walking. They just do not offer the same mental stimulation your dog gets by investigating the smells, sights, and sounds they encounter on a walk. As a dog walks, they are releasing mental energy by processing information about how their territory has changed since their last walk.
Dog Walking Benefits
Every dog breed requires a walk, even the most tiny, pocket-sized dogs. Just because they fit into a purse does not mean they need be carried everywhere. The length of the walk should be targeted to the age, size, and energy of your dog, but all dogs need to be taken for daily walks.
Professionally Designed Walk Routines
We will personally develop a walking routine suitable for your dogs. More energetic dogs will go for an invigorating walk and afterward, be well exercised and tired. He will most likely want to sleep until you return home from work! We will walk 95% of the visit and the remaining time will be spent watering and giving your dog belly rubs and hugs for a job well done! For older pups, a leisurely stroll around the block is sufficient so they can potty and stretch their legs. We’ll always take the weather and the hot pavement into consideration. For example, our short nosed breed dogs will only take a quick spin around your neighborhood during our hot summer months.
GPS Walk Tracking
Know your dog walker is doing their job with our GPS Dog Walk Tracking feature. Our client portal is GPS enabled allowing you to track check-in/check-out times and you can even see step by step the route taken on any given walk. Additionally, you will also recieve a walk summary with photos!
