Dog Walker Totton Hampshire (SO40): Though we obviously all adore our dogs and treat them as one of the family, we quite often don't have ample time to provide them with the attention that they deserve, in particular in relation to exercise and walking. In our hectic working lives, kids to care for and social commitments it's not so easy to fit in dog walking, quite as regularly as you would like or as much as they need.
I am sure as responsible dog owners in Totton that you are all aware that your beloved pet needs plenty of exercise and it is important that you take your dog for walks frequently, this is crucial for your dog's general good health and wellness, for fitness reasons, and for its general happiness. Enjoying all important exercise and fresh air is as important for you as it is for your pet, which is the reason why it's generally better for you to do it yourself.
There is additionally the benefit of bonding, taking part in activities together can help you to establish a lasting bond with your pet. However, in these busy modern times most dog owners in Totton simply do not have enough time to walk the dog, and definitely not every single day, and it's one chore which may sometimes be put off until the next day, or forgotten entirely.
Now this is certainly where a professional Totton dog walker might be helpful, offering a regular dog walking service on a daily basis, taking the responsibility of at least one of your daily tasks and giving you time to do more pressing stuff. Arriving at a pre-arranged time to pick up your pet, an experienced Totton dog walker is then going to spend an hour or so exercising and walking your furry friend and return it to your home safely so that you don't have to fret. This could be booked in as a regular occurrence - once or twice each week, or even daily, or it could only be when you've got other important commitments or don't have the spare time.
Certain Totton dog walkers take your dog out on a one to one basis, others might take dogs out in groups, so it would be best to chat over your exact requirements with the dog walker should you have a particular preference. If you have a dog that is affable and gets on well with other dogs, group walking may be more beneficial, if your dog does not mix well with other dogs, a solo, one to one walk may be best.
Many more experienced Totton dog walkers might be able to provide additional pet related services not solely for dogs, for instance they might provide dog or pet boarding services while you're away, visit your home daily to feed or check on your dog or other pets, pick up your dog and taxi it to the vets or provide your dog with some basic training if appropriate. Some dog walkers in Totton may even be able to offer a dog grooming service as well, a sort of "walk and groom". Some of these services may be very useful and provide a comprehensive pet care service that gives you reassurance with regard to the health, happiness and wellbeing of all of your animals, while still letting you work, socialize and look after your family.

To ensure that your dog continues to be healthy, loved and happy, you should always be an important part of their exercise and training regimen.

A nationwide survey carried out in 2020 found the average cost of a dog walk to be roughly £10-£11.
Things to Bear in Mind: You need to be a bit thorough in respect of who you select to walk your dog in Totton, since practically anybody can easily advertise themselves as a dog walker and begin operating that service, and they do not have to gain any certifications or qualifications to carry out dog walking.
