Dog Walking | 3 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Dog Walker


There’s a reason why dogs are man’s best friend. They’re ready and willing to take off on an adventure at the drop of a hat and they always seem super excited about it. They give us puppy-kisses when we’re feeling low. They just might be the happiest creature alive when we get home from work!

For all they do for us, we want to give our furry friend the best life possible.

But with an overloaded schedule, finding time to walk with your best pal quickly turns into another item on your never-ending to-do list, making your dog another obligation. That can cause a lot of stress on your relationship with your furry friend.

That’s where dog walkers come in [enter dog walker wearing cape]. They can relieve the burden of walking your dog while keeping your pup safe and ensuring they have the time of their lives!

Top 3 benefits of dog walking

A professional dog walker can help you get past some of the most difficult hurdles of pet ownership. Leaving you with the best parts – limitless cuddles and a best friend who is healthier and happier.

  • ONE – Saves you time, energy and guilt
    Between work, family and social obligations, finding time to walk your dog can become a hassle, and that’s no fun for anyone – especially your favourite furry friend.

Knowing that your pup is happy and taken care of makes that daily cloud of obligation and guilt disappear. After all, the last thing you want after an exhausting day of work are two pleading puppy eyes breaking your heart!

  • TWO -Gives your pup a positive energy outlet
    Instead of chewed up shoes, torn up and busted furniture, or strange spots discolouring the carpet – your dog is burning off their energy productively and having tons more fun than at your house.

On a dog hike, your pup will be:

  • Mentally stimulated by all the new smells, sights and sounds
  • Socialized by other dogs and people (even if it’s just a private walk)
  • Burning fat and building new muscle hiking through all the new areas they’ll explore

And when you get home, you’ll be greeted by a contented pal who is ready to relax with you for the evening!

  • THREE – Gives you peace of mind
    When your pooch is with a professional dog walker, you can rest assured they’re safe and having fun. While you’re out working hard and ‘bringing home the bacon’, your pup is out enjoying fresh air, sunshine (or rain), and exploring to their heart’s content, all while a professional is there, encouraging them and keeping them safe and happy!

For added peace of mind, make sure you hire a dog walker with the proper credentials, like K9- First Aid Certification.
