Dog Walker Airdrie Scotland (ML6): While every dog owner in Airdrie loves and adores their pet dogs, and practically treats them as one of the family, it isn't all that easy to find the time to take them out and exercise them as frequently as they should, or give them the full attention that they quite obviously deserve. When you look at our busy work lives, kids to care for and social engagements it's easy to see why it might be hard to make the additional time for walking a dog, and definitely not as frequently or for as long as they'd like.
Now I'm sure all of you realize that your dog needs to have exercise and it's crucial that you take your dog for walks frequently, both for fitness benefits and for the dog's general health and wellness. We can all use a bit more exercise which is why, where possible, you should always make an effort to walk your own dog as often as you can.
Also there is the benefit of bonding, getting involved in activities together helps you to build up a bond with your dog. The unhappy fact is however that lots of people simply just cannot spare the time to walk the dog, and certainly not once or twice a day, and it is one chore which can easily be postponed until tomorrow, or simply forgotten.
So, this is where a local Airdrie dog walker will be able to help you out, providing frequent walks for your pet and at the same time taking some of the daily stress out of your life, so that you're in the position to concentrate on more pressing matters without needing to impinge on your dog's exercise regime. Arriving at a pre-arranged time to collect your pet, an experienced Airdrie dog walker is then going to spend an hour or more exercising your furry friend and return it safely to your home so you don't need to worry. It might be every single day, 3 times a week, or just on the odd days when your are too busy or have other obligations.
Some Airdrie dog walkers take your dog for a walk on a one to one basis, other services might take two or more dogs in a group, so it might be best to chat over your exact wants with any potential dog walker should you have any misgivings in relation to this. If you have a dog that is affable and mixes well with other dogs, a group walk might be more beneficial, but if your dog does not interact well with other dogs, a one on one walk might be better.
Various Airdrie dog walkers also be able to offer alternative services for pets not just for dogs, for instance they might visit your house every day to feed or check on your dog, cat or other pets, provide dog boarding when you're away, provide your dog with some basic training if needed or collect your dog and taxi it to the vet. Other dog walkers in Airdrie may even be able to provide a dog grooming service as well, or "walk and groom". Such services can be really helpful and give an overall pet care service that will give you peace of mind with relation to the health, wellbeing and happiness of all your animals and pets, while enabling you to look after your family, socialize and work.
It is essential however, that your own interactions with your dog are not entirely substituted with those of a dog walking service. In other words you still need to take your dog walking whenever possible, to keep the bond and relationship strong. You you should always aim to be an active and integral part of your dog's exercise and training regime so that your precious pet will stay happy, adored and healthy throughout it's life.
Dog Walking Benefits: Dogs get a whole host of benefits from being walked and exercised every day, and these include things such as: stronger muscles and bones, weight control, increased cardiovascular fitness, reduced blood pressure, decreased loneliness, better bonding and better mental health & wellbeing.
How Much Should I Pay For a Dog Walker?: Owing to the various elements that could constitute "a dog walk", prices can differ considerably, and will depend on the the standard of service required, the area you live in, how long the walk lasts for and whether it is a group or solo walk (group walks are sometimes cheaper).
Airdrie Dog Walkers and What to Look For: Obviously as you don't need any certifications or qualifications for dog walking, just about anyone can easily put themselves forward as a dog walker and commence operating that service, so you should be cautious concerning who you choose to walk your dog in Airdrie.
Because you might be giving the dog walker access to your house in Airdrie, to be able to collect the dog, feed your pets or perform other duties, security could be a factor that you need to consider. A dog walker who's passed a police DBS check (formerly CRB check), will be far easier for you to feel reassured about. Public liability cover is also essential in case of mishaps with your dog. So make certain that your Airdrie dog walker is sufficiently protected by insurance.
Dog walkers generally also like to be introduced to your dog first to make certain that they are a good match, so you should organise this before making your final decision.
