Take your dog for a walk!! This one simple thing can make a huge difference in your dogs behavior and well being. If you are too busy with work and life, then hire a professional dog walker from Happy Tails Pet Sitting. Professional Dog Walkers are able to walk your dog and give them the exercise and stimulation they need in order to live a happy healthy life. Dogs also add balance to our lives. You will most likely find by taking your dog for a walk you enjoy being out with them.
We work with all kinds of dog breeds and no matter how large or small your dog is, they all need training! Dog training is very easy if you are consistent. Let’s all take at extra 5 minutes a day to train our dogs this month. Maybe a fun trick like fetch or roll over, or a skill you could use everyday like sit – stay – come. Enjoy National Train Your Dog Month. Try going on to Pedigree’s dog training tips:
A trained dog is important and it makes our job as dog walker, dog hiker and pet sitter safer and more enjoyable.
When hiring a professional dog walker to walk your dog you should think about exactly what your needs are for your dog. Many professional pet sitters and dog walkers offer a variety of different dog walks or dog hikes depending on the personality and activity level of the individual dogs in each group. Pairing your dogs needs with the correct program is important.
If you are planning on getting a dog and decide on a puppy PLEASE plan accordingly with your vacations! As far as Pet Sitting goes, those little puppies are not the best candidates for Drop in Visits OR overnight stays. Plan to get a puppy when you will be able to commit to staying home and providing pet care until your dog is at least 5 or 6 months old. This will provide a secure home environment and a confident dog. For Dog Walking find a puppy care program for midday feedings and potty training. Happy Tails Pet Sitting provides this service.
Now that the rain has come, so do the ticks. As a Professional dog walker, I have seen my fair share of ticks. The dogs pick them up on our Adventure hikes and even just on our dog walks. Please be sure to use some tick preventative on your dog to protect against these awful bloodsuckers!! You can call any vet hospital for a recommendation, or just visit your local pet store. Here are some links to help you out. I have included a holistic alternative for a Vet Hospital as well.
