Dog Walker Basildon Essex (SS12 and SS13): Despite the fact that we all cherish our pet dogs and consider them to be one of the family, we don't always have the time to provide them with the care that they need, particularly in relation to exercise and walking. When you consider our kids to care for, social commitments and demanding working lives it is not difficult to see why it's often hard to set aside the extra time for walking a dog, and certainly not as frequently as they would like.
Now I'm guessing all of you recognize that your dog needs to have plenty of exercise and that it is imperative that you walk your dog regularly, both for fitness reasons and for your dog's overall wellness and health. It is usually best for you to do this yourself as you are able to obtain quite similar health benefits as your dog does, getting some much needed fresh air and exercise.
Doing activities together can help you to build a relationship with your dog, which makes bonding yet another benefit. The sad fact is however that some of us really do not have the time to take the dog for a walk, and definitely not daily, and this is one particular chore which may sometimes be put off until tomorrow, or simply forgotten.
This is certainly where an experienced dog walker in Basildon can be of use to you, supplying a routine dog walking service on a day to day basis, taking away the anxiety of one of your daily tasks and giving you time to do more important stuff. Arriving at a pre-arranged time to pick up your pet, an experienced Basildon dog walker is then going to spend something like an hour exercising your furry friend and return it safely to your home so that you don't have to fret. It might be daily, 2 or 3 times a week, or perhaps just on the odd day when you have other responsibilities or are otherwise engaged.
If is invariably a wise idea to chat about your preferences and requirements with two or three different dog walkers in Basildon, because some of them typically take dogs out in large groups, whilst others are prepared to do solo dog walks. If your canine friend does not mix well with other dogs, a one on one walk might be the better option, but if you have a dog who is friendly and gets on with other dogs, a group walk may perhaps be more beneficial.
Many professional Basildon dog walkers could provide alternative pet related services and not solely for dogs, for example they may be prepared to pop along to your house daily to feed your dog, cat or other pets, provide dog board and lodging while you're away, provide your dog or puppy with some basic training if needed or collect your dog or pet and take it to the vets. Other dog walkers in Basildon might even be able to offer a dog grooming service too, a sort of "walk and groom". These services can prove extremely helpful and provide a complete pet care service that will give reassurance with regards to the happiness, wellbeing and health of all of your pets and animals, while still allowing you to work, look after your family and socialize.
It's important however, that your own personal interactions with your pet aren't totally replaced by those of a dog walker. This means that you still ought to take your dog out for a walk as often as you're able, to keep the relationship and bond strong. You really should be an important part of their training and exercise routine to make certain that your beloved pet remains healthy, loved and content.
Benefits Gained From Dog Walking: There are a range of proven benefits that a dog will gain from frequent walking such benefits include: decreased loneliness, bonding improvements, obesity control, improved cardiovascular fitness, better mental health, lowering of blood pressure and stronger bones and muscles.
How Much Should I Pay For a Dog Walker?: Like with any services, the prices for dog walking will vary somewhat, dependent on whether it is a one to one or group walk, how long the walk lasts, the area you live in and the the standard of service provided, but as a rough guide you should be expecting to be charged between £9 and £15 for a sixty minute walk with kisses and hugs absolutely free. The average cost of a dog walk was stated to be somewhere between £10 and £11, in a UK survey carried out in 2020.
Things to Bear in Mind: You need to be a bit conscientious with regards to just who you choose to walk your dog in Basildon, because literally any Tom, Dick or Harriet can get started as a dog walker and begin running that service, and they don't have to have any qualifications or certifications to carry out dog walking.
Since you could be giving this individual access to your property in Basildon, so as to collect the dog, feed your pets or complete other duties, security could be a factor that you should look into. You'll have a lot more confidence in any dog walkers who have passed a DBS police check (Disclosure and Barring Service check). It is also essential that your dog walker has invested in an acceptable public liability cover, to cover any accidents which involve your dog. This doesn't cost all that much and any sensible dog walker in Basildon should make certain they're sufficiently protected.
It might also be sensible if any would-be dog walker meets with the dog before they start in order to be certain that that they will get on alright.
