The Benefits of Daily Dog Walks

IMG_5475

If you don’t think you need to take your dog for walks, think again! Walks are an essential part of his/her well-being and offer them many benefits, which we’ll highlight very shortly.

We know that schedules can get crazy sometimes and that work, family and other obligations can get in the way of time spent with your pet. If you can’t seem to find the time in your busy days to fit in a walk with your four-legged pal, don’t worry — that’s what we’re here for!! Our dog-walking services offer you and your pet the following benefits:

1. Exercise: Dogs, like humans, need exercise to maintain good health and a daily, brisk walk grants them this valuable component of a healthy, happy life. Even older pets and pets with special needs should receive walks for exercise too, and we will gladly tailor your pet’s walk based on his/her physical condition and abilities.

2. Energy release: Dogs’ energy levels can vary greatly from one individual to the next and for those who seem to have as much as the Energizer Bunny, daily walks can be a great way to help them burn off some of that extra energy. Walks may also help lessen destructive behaviors like chewing or digging. Wouldn’t it be nice to come home to a much calmer pet? Yes? We thought so!

3. Socialization: Dogs are pack animals by nature and proper socialization is essential to their happiness and well-being. Walks give them a chance to interact with other dogs and introduces them to a variety of people, surroundings and situations, as well, all of which help to make them more well-adjusted and tolerant individuals.

4. Routine: It’s important to keep your pet on some sort of routine, especially as far as potty breaks go. Daily walks allow them to keep a routine, even when you can’t be there to do so. We can visit your dog for a walk as many times a day as you deem necessary.

5. Peace of mind: Knowing that your pets are being loved and well-cared for while you’re at work or traveling may very well be the best benefit of all. While under our supervision, you can rest assured that your pets are receiving the best care possible and that we’re keeping an eye out on your home, too!

We have seen these benefits in action and many happy dogs and their owners are testament to this. We urge you to try out our dog-walking services if you’re finding it difficult to fit Fido’s walks into your schedule. We’d be delighted to work with you to establish the walking schedule that is right for you and your pet. Contact us today to get started!
