With the hectic day-to-day lives we live today you might not get a chance to walk your dog. It’s understandable, we all get 24 hours a day and with a million things to do every bit of help we get makes a big difference!
You could be thinking you would never need a pet sitter to walk your dog, but it’s a good idea to have a backup for when things happen. If you have a family emergency, get injured, are stuck in traffic, your boss wants you to stay late or simply want to focus on something else for the day your pet can still get the exercise it needs.
Because a dog needs exercise, it should be a daily priority. Don’t opt to skip daily exercise for you dog, it might not end well. The main reason a dog should exercise daily is his health. Dogs who don’t exercise get overweight and overweight dogs develop many health problems. Also, walking your dog keeps their stress levels down. A stressed dog will end up chewing trough everything! Your shoes, your furniture and even your walls if you give him enough time.
It’s normal not to have time everyday to walk your dog, getting help is the best option. There are many services you can use to get a dog walker, but I recommend those who let you use the same walker every time. It’s better for your dog to form a bond with the walker instead of a having different stranger coming to your house every time. This way you don’t have to worry about the stranger and the dog. “Will my dog like the walker today?” or “Will the walker for today be good to my dog?” are questions you won’t have to ask yourself if you get the same dog walker everyday!
