Have you ever come home from work or school to find that your dog has done their best to “redesign” your home? And does that usually involve the destruction of shoes, slippers, and other personal items?
Your dog needs an outlet to burn off some energy. While some breeds may not want exercise as much as others, all of them need it to stay healthy and happy. But what do you do when other obligations make it difficult for you to give your dog the workout they need?
Living in Vancouver, there is no shortage of great places for your dog to explore. But if you are unable to take them yourself, it sounds like it’s time to make use of dog walking services.
What Are the Benefits of Hiring a Dog Walker?
Aside from helping to keep your possessions from meeting an unfortunate end via the teeth of your dog or puppy, having your dog walked by a professional dog walker lets you rest easy knowing that your four-legged companion is getting the attention that they deserve.
Dog walking services in Vancouver have a variety of benefits for both you and your dog, including:
Pets need exercise as much as humans do. With an estimated 50 to 60 percent of dogs and cats in Canada considered overweight or obese, getting them out and walking is a great way to prevent or diminish several health problems.
Socialization and Stimulation
Walking is more than just physical exercise for your dog. When out for a walk, your dog gets to see, hear, and smell new things to stimulate their senses. They also can meet other dogs, encouraging proper socialization. It is an exciting and enjoyable experience for your dog.
By taking regular walks, your dog burns off excess energy. The result is a calmer, happier dog at home, and a decreased likelihood of them engaging in undesirable behaviour such as chewing, biting, or barking.
Peace of Mind
When you are stuck at work and unable to be with your pet, a dog walker ensures that they are getting attention and being taken care of, so that you can have peace of mind. You can feel good knowing that they won’t be locked up all alone and waiting for your return, but rather out enjoying themselves.
Extra Time for You
Juggling work and home life can be complicated, and sometimes finding a little spare time for yourself is difficult. A professional dog walker ensures that your dog is getting the exercise and stimulation that they need, which leaves you more time to do the things you need to do, as well as making your time with your pet more enjoyable.
With Ruff Stuff’s Vancouver dog walking services, everyone wins. Your dog gets to go on fun, healthy excursions, returning to you ready for some family time, and you get to know that you are doing your best for them, even when you are busy at work or dealing with all of life’s other distractions.
