Reasons to hire a professional dog walker
First, the easiest way to get your dog to be better behaved is to give the dog more exercise. People don't always realize that the reason the dog is barking, destroying the house or acting hyper all the time is because the dog is not getting enough exercise.
A romp in the backyard or playing with toys in the house is not enough exercise. All dogs need a good half-hour walk every day. But most dogs will need more than that, closer to an hour a day or more.
A dog will appreciate a new toy or some good food. But what dogs really want and love most of all is to be outside or doing something productive with their person.
Professional dog walkers love dogs, and they understand them. Or, at least they should. But because it's easy to start a dog walking business or to say someone is a dog walker, it is a good idea to ask for references.
The other route is to hire a neighborhood kid or even an adult to walk your dog. Perhaps the kid on the cross country team would like a training buddy, or perhaps the man across the street would like a dog to accompany him on his morning walks. You may not even have to pay these people.
Just be careful who you entrust with your dog. There are reasons to hire a professional. For one, a professional with his or her own dog walking business has had a lot of experience with dogs.
A professional will know how to handle your wild and crazy lab or your squirrel obsessed border collie. Many professionals will work with aggressive dogs or fearful dogs.
If someone is unsure about whether the dog walker can handle a hyper, aggressive or large dog, he or she can always ask to see the dog walker interact with the dog outside on a leash. This will give a pretty good idea of whether or not the dog walker is capable.
Professional dog walkers often come equipped with insurance and flexible hours. The dog's owner does not even have to be home during the walking session if he or she does not want to be.
Most people who hire dog walkers request that their dogs be walked while they are at work. That way, when they come home, their dogs will already have gotten some exercise.
Of course, hiring a dog walker does not replace the importance of the owner walking the dog as well. Think of a dog walker as an added bonus for the dog. The most balanced dogs are walked by their own owners every single day.
