There are many reasons to hire a dog walker. Having a dog walker means you can have the best of both worlds. You can have the thrill and joy of having a best friend with unconditional love, but you can also have a full time job, or go out with your family for the day and not have to feel guilty for leaving your dog behind. You also don’t have to rely on family and friends to always help you out.
Sadly, one of the questions I get asked the most when I am out and about is “Well why would anyone need a dog walker? People shouldn’t have dogs if they can’t walk them”. It is so important to realise that having a dog walker doesn’t mean you’re an irresponsible dog owner, it actually makes you a responsible one. A lot of people don’t know where their lives will be in 10 years time, as you know, dogs are a huge commitment, much like having small furry children who can’t go to school!
Even if you don’t work, hiring a dog walker can have huge benefits to you and your dog. Dogs are social animals and often it is hard for dog owners to give their dogs the socialisation it craves and deserves. Group walks allow dogs to interact and be dogs together! They play and make new friends, as well as getting lots of mental and physical stimulation.
It is important you find the right dog walker for you and your dogs needs, so if you have any questions, feel free to contact us to discuss your needs or if you think you need help!
