Dog Walker Watford Hertfordshire (WD17): Though we obviously all cherish our dogs and treat them as one of the family, we quite often don't have adequate time to provide them with the attention that they need, especially in terms of walking and exercise. It isn't necessarily that we don't want to take them for exercise it simply that with social obligations, kids to look after and busy working lives, it often tough to find the time.
Now I suppose all of you recognize that your dog needs to have exercise and it's crucial that you take your dog for walks constantly, both for the dog's general good health and wellness and for fitness benefits. We could all use a bit more exercise which is why, where feasible, you should generally try to walk your own dog whenever you can.
Taking part in activities together helps you to build up a stronger relationship with your pet, which makes bonding an additional benefit. In today's busy world however, most of us just do not have sufficient time to take the dog for a walk, definitely not on a daily basis, and it is one chore which may frequently be overlooked.
So, this is an instance when a local Watford dog walker will be happy to give you a hand, providing frequent walks and exercise for your pet and at the same time taking some of the daily stress out of your life, so that you're able to concentrate on more pressing tasks without needing to impinge on your dog's exercise regime. Showing up at your house in Watford, to collect your pet, a dog walking service will then take it for an hour or so's walk and return it safely to your doorstep. It might be every day, 2 or 3 times each week, or possibly just on the odd days when you have other obligations or are otherwise engaged.
Some Watford dog walkers walk your dog solo, others could take a number of dogs at once, so it would be best to chat about your exact wants with the dog walker if you have any qualms. If your pet is sociable, friendly and gets on well with other dogs, it could be of more benefit to opt for group walking, however if your pet is inclined to fight with other dogs, or is a bit snappy, you should maybe stick with one-on-one, solo walks.
A number of professional Watford dog walkers may be able to offer alternative services not only for dogs, for instance they might collect your pet and take it to the vets, offer dog board and lodging whenever you are away on holiday, go to your home every day to feed or check on your dog, cat or small pet or give your dog some basic training if appropriate. Others might even be able to provide a dog grooming service too, or "walk and groom". Such services may prove very useful and give a total pet care service that gives you peace of mind with relation to the health, wellbeing and happiness of all of your animals, while still letting you work, socialize and look after your family.
It is important however, that your own personal interactions with your pet aren't totally replaced by those of a dog walking service. In other words you still need to take your furry friend out for a walk whenever you can, to keep the relationship and bond strong. To ensure that your dog continues to be happy, loved and healthy, you should always be a fundamental part of their exercise and training routine.
The Benefits For Your Dog: The many benefits to your dog that can result from daily walking and exercise include: stronger muscles and bones, decreased loneliness, bond strengthening, increased cardiovascular fitness, improved mental health & wellbeing, reduced blood pressure and obesity control.
How Much Does it Cost?: Dog walking prices, much like any other services, could vary somewhat and will depend on the area in which you live, whether it is a group or one to one walk, how long the walk lasts and the service provided. The average cost of a single dog walk was reported to be between £10 and £11, in a UK survey conducted in 2020.
What to Look For in Your Dog Walker: Because no qualifications or certifications are required for dog walking in Watford, you need to be a bit conscientious as to who you opt for to walk your dog. At the end of the day almost anyone can easily set up shop as a dog walker and commence operating that service, therefore caution is important.
There may be security worries since you could be allowing them access to your house to be able to pick up your dog, feed your pets or carry out other duties. It will be a lot easier for you to feel reassured about a dog walker who has been cleared by a DBS police check (formerly CRB check), and is regarded as safe. You may as well want to see whether your potential Watford dog walker is insured, to cover any accidents which involve your dog, some form of public liability insurance would clearly be acceptable.
It might also be a wise idea if any prospective dog walker is introduced to your dog to start with so you can be certain that that they will get on together.
