What to do when you can’t walk your dog
As loving, responsible pooch parents, we all want to make sure our dogs are living happy and healthy lives. And getting out for regular walks is just one part of that. But sometimes life can be unexpected, and things can come between your quality walking time with your pooch. Whether you’re off on holiday, working long hours or have a chronic injury there are lots of options to ensure your pooch is getting the mental and physical stimulation they need, from dog walkers to doggy day care.
If you’re at work or away on the weekends, a local dog walker is a great way to make sure your pooch is getting the attention they need. Even if you’re not working long hours, but you cannot get out of the house as often as you’d like because you’re ill or injured, a dog walker can be a life saver for you and your pup.
How much do dog walkers charge?
The cost of hiring a dog walker is dependent on a number of factors. Do you have multiple dogs that need walking? Are they travelling from out of your local area? How many walks per day or week do you require? All of these factors will impact how much your dog walker will charge.
If you’re out of the house for long periods of time each day, a doggy day care service may be the best option for you. They provide your pooch with the company, walks and daily affection they need. From local dog sitters to a dedicated day care centre, you have a number of options when it comes to choosing a day care for your doggy.
Exercise Your Dog
Dogs are our pride and joy as they provide us with love. But they also require a lot of exercise, which can be hard when you’re busy, your pet is injured, or due to bad weather.
That’s why it’s essential to find creative ways to keep your dog active and entertained.
Regular exercise is essential to stay fit and healthy, and dogs are no exception to this. Unlike most other pets, dogs like to be with their owner in visiting new places and exploring their natural surroundings.
Have you ever wondered why our dogs get so excited when it’s time to walk? It is because the time to go out and explore is the highlight of their day.
Walking your dog will help your dog build trust and confidence in you and your environment.
No matter the size, every dog needs regular exercise. Whether your dog is a puppy or grown-up, the breed can also influence the duration of exercise.
It does not just benefit your pet; it can benefit you too.
Dogs not only need to exercise to keep their weight in check, but those who do not get enough exercise end up misbehaving. A bored dog will more likely show behavioral issues, such as becoming destructive or excessing barking.
Even a short game can improve your dog’s mental and physical well-being.
So, how do you tire out a dog without walking?
