Dog Walker Clitheroe Lancashire (BB7): Whilst we obviously all love our pet dogs and consider them to be one of the family, we don't always have ample time to give them the care and attention they require, particularly in relation to walking. It's not necessarily that we don't want to take them for walks and exercise it mostly that with social engagements, kids to care for and busy working lives, it often difficult to find the extra time.
As the owner of a dog in Clitheroe, I'm sure that you are conscious of the fact that exercise is extremely important for your dog and taking your pooch for walks on a frequent basis is crucial for its contentment, physical & mental health, wellbeing and fitness, also it's great for your own wellbeing too. We could all do with a little bit more exercise which is why, where possible, you should invariably make an effort to walk your own dog as often as you are able.
There is additionally the benefit of bond strengthening, doing activities together can help you in developing a lasting bond with your dog. The sad fact is however that a lot of us basically don't have the time for walking the dog, certainly not once or twice a day, and this is one of those chores which may be easily postponed until tomorrow, or simply forgotten.
So, this is an instance where a local Clitheroe dog walker will be able to help you out, providing regular walks for your pet and taking a bit of the stress out of your eveyday life, so that you're in the position to concentrate on more important matters without adversely affecting your dog's routine exercise. Arriving at your home in Clitheroe, to collect your pet, a dog walker will then take it on a lovely long walk and return it safely to your doorstep an hour or more later. This could be booked in as a regular thing - on a daily basis or maybe 3 times per week, or it can only be when you have other important commitments or don't have the spare time.
Certain Clitheroe dog walkers will take your dog out on its own, other dog walkers might take a number of dogs at once, so it might be better to have a conversation about your specific needs with any potential dog walker if you have any misgivings. If your dog is friendly and doesn't have problems with other dogs, group walking may be more beneficial, but if your dog does not get on well with other dogs, a solo, one to one walk may be better.
Certain more experienced Clitheroe dog walkers may be able to provide other services not just for dogs, for example they may be prepared to give your dog some basic training if they are being naughty, offer dog board and lodging whilst you are on your holidays, collect your pet and take it to the vets or pop along to your home every day to feed or check on your pets. Others may even be able to offer dog grooming services too. Such services can prove quite useful and provide a total pet care service that will give peace of mind with relation to the happiness, wellbeing and health of all your animals and pets, while still letting you socialize, work and look after your family.
It is important however, that your own interactions with your pet aren't totally substituted with those of a dog walking service. In other words you should still take your four-legged friend walking as often as you're able, to keep the bond and relationship strong. You need to be an important part of their training and exercise regime to ensure your cherished pet continues to be happy, adored and healthy.
Dog Walking Benefits: There are a huge number of amazing benefits that your dog will gain from being walked and exercised regularly they include: increased cardiovascular fitness, bond strengthening, stronger bones and muscles, reduced blood pressure, decreased loneliness, weight control and better mental health & wellbeing.
What is the Cost?: Like with any services, dog walking prices vary considerably, subject to the level of service required, whether it is a group or solo walk, the town where you live and how long the walk lasts for, but as an approximate guide you should expect to fork out between £10 and £15 for a 1 hour walk with kisses and hugs thrown in for free. A national survey completed in 2020 discovered the average cost of a dog walk to be roughly £10-£11.
What to Look Out For: You need to be conscientious as to just who you pick to walk your dog in Clitheroe, since literally any individual is able to set themselves up as a dog walker and begin operating such a service, and they don't need to gain any qualifications or certifications to do dog walking.
Security issues might be involved as you could be giving them access to your home in order to pick up your dog or feed your pets. A dog walker who has been cleared by a police DBS check (formerly CRB check), will be far easier for you to feel reassured about. Public liability cover is also important in case of mishaps with your dog. So make sure that your Clitheroe dog walker is satisfactorily insured.
It might also be a good idea if any prospective dog walker meets up with your dog initially so you can be sure that they will get on with each other.
