5 Reasons to Hire A Professional Dog Walker

Hiring a professional dog walker has many benefits for your dog – and you, as well! Below are 5 reasons to consider hiring a professional dog walker.

1.) Health & Wellness:  Just like humans, dogs require daily and consistent exercise to live long, healthy, and happy lives. According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, an estimated 54% of dogs are considered obese. A daily dog walk will keep your dog active and at a healthy weight. Additional daily dog walk benefits include mind stimulation, agility maintenance, and daily confidence boosts!

2.) Peace of Mind: Hiring a professional dog walker will give you peace of mind that Fido had a midday potty break, exercise, and one-on-one care while you’re at work during the day. Professional and reputable dog walkers are experienced, reliable, attentive, and bonded/insured. 

3.) Behavior: If your dog is displaying undesirable behaviors such as chewing, barking, potty accidents, and/or separation anxiety, Fido may not be getting enough exercise during the day. A well-exercised dog is a well-behaved and happy dog!

4.) Time: Life is busy! Many of our clients work long hours, are unable to drive home during their lunch break, and/or have after-work commitments. It can be very difficult to get a walk in during the work week. With a professional dog walker, your dog will get the daily exercise and attention they deserve. You’ll come home to a relaxed and happy doggo!

5.) Physical Limitations: If you are physically unable to walk your dog or Fido’s energy level surpasses yours, a professional dog walker is the perfect solution. The walk duration and pace will be customized per Fido’s needs.

Does Your Dog Get Enough Exercise?

According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, an estimated 54% of dogs (and cats) are considered obese. Does your pet get enough exercise?

Most people exhaustively juggle a career, long commutes, work engagements, appointments, and more. There doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day.

A casualty of our busy life patterns may be the health of our beloved pets. As with humans, dogs require consistent exercise to maintain good health. Their current exercise routine may be limited to a brief run around the backyard. But that is just not enough.

Four Leg Stretch provides dog walk services to ensure your pets get the exercise they need. We offer midday dog walks in 15, 30, or 60 minute increments. While you’re at work, you’ll have peace of mind knowing Fido got his exercise for the day. You’ll come home to a relaxed and happy dog!
