Think back to the last time you were stuck sick at home. Maybe your nose was so stuffed you couldn’t sleep. Or, perhaps you were having a sleepless night. Either way, every minute feels like an hour. You are alone, waiting for family to get home from their daily routines or to wake up from a refreshing sleep.
That’s probably a lot how your dog feels when she’s left home alone all day with no social interaction and no opportunity to go outside to relieve herself. She may become bored and start to get into things she shouldn’t. After all, an entire day of sleeping just isn’t possible for anyone – canine or human.
Is a dog walking service really necessary? Yes. If you want to ensure your dog gets the exercise and the socialization she needs and so she does not develop behavioral problems, you need a dog walking service.
Here are several reasons a dog walking service is necessary:
Ensure your dog gets necessary exercise
If your dog is cooped up at home alone all day, she might greet you with excessive enthusiasm, including jumping all over you and barking, begging you for a much-anticipated and much-needed walk. You may have no choice but to acquiesce because your dog probably won’t leave you in peace until she’s lost some of that energy. A professional dog walker, who comes in the midday, will help your dog expend her energy and ensure she is more relaxed when you return home.
Help prevent behavioral problems
A dog who is cooped up in the house all day – with no social interaction – is more likely to exhibit behavioral problems. A bored dog is going to start looking for something to keep herself entertained – whether that’s chewing her favourite toy or your favourite piece of furniture. A dog walking service sends a professional dog walker to give your dog a much-needed break from the monotony of the day, allows her to eliminate, to socialize, and to get out her extra energy.
Make your life easier
The last thing many people want to do after a long day at work is come home, change clothes, and head out for a long walk, especially if it is cold or raining. Yet, that’s what your dog will need if you do not have a professional dog walker. You are less likely to return home to an accident on the floor and you can take the time to relax before you head out for a walk or start a play session with your pup.
