Should I Hire A Dog Walker And Pet Sitter?

Is my pet lonely when I’m away or at work? If I get stuck in traffic or an emergency comes up who can care for my Pet? Is my dog getting enough exercise? If my pet gets put on medication and I’m not available who can give it to my pet for me?

Many dog owners grapple with the question of whether or not to hire a dog walker. In the majority of cases, the answer is YES! Why? First and foremost, hiring a dog walker to relieve your pet once, twice or even three times a day helps put your mind at ease so you can focus on your busy day and know that your beloved pet is comfortable and well cared for. Dogs, like humans, are social creatures, and crave interaction and stimulation. Even a quick walk around the block provides a welcome break in your dog's day during which he or she can enjoy the fresh air and sunshine along with the sights, sounds and smells of the neighborhood. Many breeds like Golder Retrievers, Labs, Jack Russles and Shelties, just to name a few, need regular exercise to stay happy and healthy. Dogs that do not get enough exercise and stimulation often begin to exhibit destructive behavior like problem barking, digging, chewing and even aggression. These behaviors are not because the dog is bad, it's because he or she is bored.  In addition to providing potty breaks and exercise, a visit from your daily dog walker can be an important second set of eyes on your pet. Often times, dog walkers are the first to notice that your dog might be sick or in distress and they can help make sure your pet gets the care he or she needs.
