Dog Walker Driffield East Yorkshire (YO25): Even though all of us adore our dogs and consider them to be one of the family, when it comes to exercise, we quite often don't have the time to provide them with the care and attention they require. In our demanding work commitments, a family to care for and social calendar to keep up with it's not so easy to slot in walking and exercising the dog, quite as often as you'd like or as much as they need.
Now I have no doubt all of you know that your dog needs exercising and it is crucial that you walk your dog on a regular basis, both for fitness reasons and for your dog's general health and wellbeing. It's usually better if you do this yourself because you'll be able to obtain much the same health benefits as your dog does, enjoying some essential exercise and fresh air.
There is the added benefit of bonding, getting involved in shared activities helps you to build up a lasting bond with your pet. The sad fact is however that most people simply do not have the spare time to walk the dog, and definitely not daily, and this is one chore which may habitually be postponed, or simply forgotten.
So here is where employing a dog walker in Driffield will prove useful, delivering a consistent dog walking service on a day to day basis by a trusted dog walker, taking away the pressure of at least one daily duty and giving you more time to do pressing stuff. A dog walker will go to your house in Driffield, collect your furry friend and walk it for an hour or so. The vast majority of Driffield dog walkers will be pleased to do this anytime you need it, so no matter if you want your dog to be walked daily, two or three times per week, or just when you've got other important things to do, they will be there to help you.
Certain Driffield dog walkers will take your dog for a walk one to one, other services could take several dogs in a group, so it would be best to discuss your specific wants with a potential dog walker if you have a particular preference. If you have a dog who is affable and mixes well with other dogs, a group walk might be more beneficial, if your dog does not get on well with other dogs, a solo walk may be better.
Some professional Driffield dog walkers may also be able to provide alternative services not solely for dogs, for example they might supply dog board and lodging while you are away, visit your house every day to feed or check on your dog, cat or small pet, give your dog or puppy some basic training if necessary or pick up your dog and take it to the vets. Others may even be able to offer dog grooming services too. Such services can prove really helpful and provide a wide ranging pet care service that gives you reassurance in respect of the health, happiness and wellbeing of all of your animals, while letting you work, socialize and look after your family.
It is essential however, that your own interactions with your dog are not completely replaced by those of a dog walking service. This means that you still ought to take your four-legged friend out for a walk as often as you're able, to keep the relationship and bond strong. You should always try to be an integral part of your dog's exercise and training routine so that your cherished pet will stay content, healthy and adored throughout the course of it's life.
Dog Walking Benefits: The many benefits to your dog that will result from frequent exercise and walking include: improved mental health & wellbeing, bond strengthening, stronger muscles and bones, reduced blood pressure, weight management, improved cardiovascular fitness and decreased issues with loneliness.
What Does it Cost?: Just like any services, the prices charged for walking your dog will differ somewhat, depending on whether it is a one to one or group walk, the the standard of service required, the town where you live and how long the walk lasts, but as an approximate guide you should be expecting to shell out between £10 and £15 for a 1 hour walking session with cuddles and kisses free of charge. A 2020 national survey found the average cost of a dog walk to be somewhere between £10 and £11.
Driffield Dog Walkers and What to Look For: Obviously as there aren't any qualifications or certifications for dog walking, essentially any individual may advertise themselves as a dog walker and commence running that service, therefore you have to be very conscientious as to just who you pick to walk your dog in Driffield.
As you might be letting them have access to your house to be able to pick up your dog, feed your pets or carry out other duties, there could be possible security issues. A dog walker who has been cleared by a DBS police check (Disclosure and Barring Service check), will be much easier for you to feel reassured about. Public liability insurance (PLI) is also crucial in case of incidents or accidents with your dog. So ensure that your Driffield dog walker is adequately covered.
Before making your final decision it is invariably a great idea to allow your pet to meet up with any prospective dog walkers to make certain that they get on together.
