Did you know that September 8th is National Dog walker Appreciation Day? For the one who doesn’t know it, “National Dog Walker Appreciation Day” is an officially recognized observation founded by Wag! for the men and women who walk millions of miles each day, exercising and entertaining mankind’s furry, four-legged friends.
As you may know, walking your dog is not easy stuff, even if it feels like it is. Yes, it’s a fun moment for you and your pup, but sometimes we, as a pet owner, do not have enough time or just can’t walk our furry friend, so we usually use the service of a dog walker.
Most dogs need to be walked at least once a day to relieve themselves, get fresh air, and exercise, although very active dogs may require more frequent walks. The length and frequency of walks depend on a dog’s breed, age, fitness level, health, and temperament. If you use the services of a professional dog walker regularly or occasionally, don’t forget to congratulate them on their appreciation day!
“Picking up poop is just one part of a dog walker’s job — and it’s the easiest part of this business,” said Jason Meltzer, co-founder, and chief dog officer at Wag! “But everyone has a special story about the dog walker who rushed across town to let the dog out when its owner got stuck at work, or who watered the plants, fed the fish, and watched the house while the family was away on vacation. That’s why the pet lovers at wag understand that we should thank these brave men and women who always ensure that our four-legged friends always have a good time while walking them.
Founded in January 2015, Wag! is an on-demand app-based mobile service that allows dog owners to hire rigorously vetted and background-checked dog walkers for 30- and 60-minute walks.
Drop in a 20-minute home visit for pets who don’t need a walk but love having friends over.
Sitting; whether it’s just for the weekend or a few weeks, select your days, and you will find a pet lover for your furry buddy who will fit your schedule. You will receive pictures, and videos of your pet enjoying playtime, meals, and snuggles if requested.
Their coat can vary – but it’s not high maintenance!
Since the Pitbull Mastiff can be a mix of many different types of dogs, their coat color can vary considerably. If you know her parents’ coloring, this will give you a better idea of what coat color or mix of colors she may have.
The most common tend to be brindle, black, white, brown or red, and they can be a mix of few of these colors.
As for the type of coat, it tends to be fine and short with low to moderate shedding. So, they will only need grooming once a week, and you are unlikely to need to keep the vacuum constantly to hand!
Pitbull Mastiff Puppies – Before You Buy…
Before you buy Pit Bull Mastiff pups, you should know that they are among the fastest-growing dogs out there. These fellas can weigh as much as 30 pounds by 3 months, 70 pounds by 6 months, 80 pounds by 9 months, and well over 100 by 12 months. As such, you should be prepared to handle a big dog within no time.
Pit Bull Mastiff puppies from reputable breeders can cost anywhere between $600 and $2,000. The actual price will depend on the pedigree of the pup’s parents.
Expensive pups typically have proof of health, which comes in the form of the health certificates of both parents. What’s more, a reputable breeder will allow you to see the pup’s mother and even father if they are around.
In fact, always insist on seeing the parents’ health certificates before you buy a pup, as that is one way of vetting the authenticity of a breeder. They should also allow you to view the pup together with the mother.
Lastly, before you set out looking for a breeder, first ask for recommendations from your vet, as they more than likely know good breeders, as well as those to avoid.
