Benefit of Dog Walkers to Dogs & You
Health -Pets need regular and consistent exercise to live long, healthy, and happy lives. Keeping your pet‘s weight maintained will also mean your pet is healthier and that equals fewer vet bills. A walk per day may also alleviate or eliminate some stress related health issues.
Socialization and Stimulation- Walking not only gets your dog the exercise she/he needs, but it also stimulates his/her senses. 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 encourage proper socialization for your dog. Walks are also frequently the highlights of our pet’s day.
Behavior -A tired dog is a happy and better behaved dog. Regular walking helps to release excess energy in your dog, resulting in calmer behavior at home. With frequent, lengthy walks, your dog will be less stressed and this will lead to less barking, whining, and behaviors such as chewing and destructive behaviors to your home.
Peace of Mind - Hiring a dog walker gives you the peace of mind that your dog is well taken care of. With a daily dog walker, you don’t have to worry as much if you need to stay late for work or have other activities keeping you from home. The knowledge that your dog will get quality time outdoors during the day also relieves the guilt or stress held by you when you can’t be with your pet. You can feel confident that you are doing the best you can for your dog, and that your dog is living a happier life.
Time - Sometimes, consistent lengthy walks are difficult to fit into our busy schedules. 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 for other activities.
Benefit of Pet Sitters to Pets & You
Less Anxiety- Allowing your pet to stay at home while you are away will eliminate the stress he feels when the smells, sights and sounds of his environment change. Rather than being removed from his comfortable surroundings, the pet remains happy in his personal home environment.
Individual & Personal Care- A pet sitter can work around your pet's daily routine to keep play, sleep and feedings consistent, the latter of which can help prevent digestive problems. Allowing routines to continue has both health and psychological benefits, and can balance your pet's energy and activity to calmer levels.
Less Exposure to Illness-Keeping your pet in his usual surroundings will help prevent exposure to disease and illnesses often found in kennels.
No Guilt from Imposing on Family Members or Neighbors- Hiring a pet sitter will save you the guilt of having to ask people around you to take time out of their schedules.
House Sitting Bonus- As an added bonus, your mail and newspapers will be brought inside, your plants & gardens will be watered, and your home will be just as you left it.
Peace of Mind- Knowing that a responsible animal lover is caring for your pet's every need while tending to your home and making your life easier, will give you peace and allow you to fully enjoy your time away from home.
