Dog Walker Banbury Oxfordshire (OX15 and OX16): Whilst everybody in Banbury loves and adores their pet dogs, and practically treats them as if they were one of the family, it's not always that simple to find adequate time to exercise and walk them as frequently as they should, or give them the full attention that they quite obviously deserve. In our ever busier working lives, kids to look after and social calendar to keep up with it is not so easy to slot in walking the dog, quite as often as you would like or as much as they need.
Now I assume all of you know that your dog needs to have plenty of exercise and it is important that you take your dog for walks routinely, both for your dog's overall good health and wellbeing and for fitness. We can all do with a bit more exercise in our lives which is why, where possible, you should always try to walk your own dog as much as you can.
Taking part in activities together can help you to develop a stronger relationship with your pet, which makes bonding yet another benefit. However, in the world today most pet owners in Banbury simply don't have the time for walking the dog, and definitely not every single day, and this is one particular chore which can be easily put off until tomorrow, or forgotten entirely.
So, this is where a local Banbury dog walker can give you a hand, providing regular walks for your pet and at the same time taking some of the everyday stress out of your life, so that you're in the position to give full attention to more pressing matters without adversely affecting your dog's exercise regime. Arriving at a pre-arranged time to collect your pet, a professional Banbury dog walker will then spend an hour or so exercising and walking your furry friend and return it to your home safely so you don't have to worry. This can be scheduled as a regular occurrence - daily or maybe two or three times a week, or it could simply be when you've got other responsibilities or don't have the spare time.
If is generally a good idea to talk over your preferences and requirements with two or three different dog walkers in Banbury, because some of them prefer to take dogs out in groups of four of five, while others are ready and willing to do one-on-one dog walks. If your dog doesn't like mixing with other dogs, a solo walk may well be better, but if your dog is sociable and doesn't have problems with other dogs, a group walk may be more beneficial.
Certain local Banbury dog walkers also provide additional services not only for dogs, for example they might offer dog board and lodging whilst you are away, visit your house daily to feed or check on your pets, pick up your dog and take it to the vets or provide your dog or puppy with some basic training if necessary. Others may even provide dog grooming services too. These services may prove quite helpful and give a complete pet care service which will give you reassurance with relation to the happiness, health and wellbeing of all your pets, while still allowing you to socialize, work and look after your family.
Even so, you shouldn't utterly replace your own personal relationship with your four-legged friend with the services of a dog walker, and you should still try to take your dog for a walk as much as you're able, to keep that relationship and bond strong. You really should be an integral part of their exercise and training program to ensure your treasured pet remains happy, loved and healthy.
Dog Walking Benefits: There are a number of favourable benefits which your dog will gain from being walked and exercised on a regular basis these include: bonding improvements, improved cardiovascular fitness, lowering of blood pressure, better mental health, stronger bones and muscles, less issues with loneliness and obesity control.
What is the Cost?: On account of the varying nature of "a dog walk", charges can differ significantly, and will be based on how long the walk lasts for, the level of service required, the town you live in and whether it is a one to one or group walk (group walks are inclined to be cheaper). A 2020 nationwide survey found the average cost of a dog walk to be between £10 and £11.
Things to Bear in Mind: Of course as there are no certifications or qualifications for dog walking, literally anyone can put themselves forward as a dog walker and start running such a service, therefore you have to be very conscientious with regards to who you select to walk your dog in Banbury.
Security factors might be involved since you may be allowing them access to your home so that they can pick up the dog, check up on your pets or complete other duties. A dog walker who's been cleared by a police DBS check (Disclosure and Barring Service check), will be much easier for you to trust. You may as well need to determine if your prospective Banbury dog walker has some insurance, in case there any mishaps involving your dog, some kind of public liability insurance would be appropriate.
Dog walkers frequently also like to be introduced to your dog first to make sure they get on ok, therefore you should arrange this before making your final choice.
