Numerous dog behaviorists and dog trainers have pointed out the importance of adequate exercise as a source of health and happiness for your dog. It has been proven that the majority of the behavior problems such as anxiety, whine, barking, digging etc, are ultimately linked to lack of daily exercise as well as boredom. It is an established fact that the mental stimulation and the social interaction provided by a good bound around in wide open spaces can act as a catalyst in eliminating behavior problems, reducing boredom and relieve stress. However, due to the heavy work schedule and other commitments, the majority of dog owners are struggling to provide their dog the daily walks they need.
Whether you are away on a holiday, business trip or a hospital stay then a professional dog walking service will ensure that your dog is getting all of the exercise and mental stimulation he/she needs, providing you at the same time the peace of mind that your beloved dog is receiving adequate love and care. Since all dogs have different needs, a consultation session is run first between you, your dog and the dog walker in order to discuss the services you require. Then your dog will be walked based on his/her own personal routine, whether they are energetic and require an active run or they need a leisurely walk in the park. Additionally, depending on the dog’s personality some dog walkers offer group dog walking services where your dog is walked along with other dogs enabling him/her to socialize and interact. Alternatively, if your dog does not mix well with a group due to illness or age restrictions single dog walking are also offered. Either way, your dog will receive the canine companion time, love and full attention and supervision by professional and experienced dog walkers. At the end of each walk the dog paws are checked for grass seeds etc and are rubbed down to make sure that the dog is dry and clean before they are returned home.
However, whether you are a dog owner or a professional dog walker it is vital to use a dog leash which will enable the dog handler to maintain complete control during walks or exercises while allowing the dog to walk sensibly. The material should be from high-quality, non-irritating material while the hand strap should provide optimal control of your pet.
