Walking your dog is about so much more than just “potty breaks.”  It’s also about exercise which  is just as important for your dog’s mental health as it is for their physical health.  Dogs need stimulation and nothing provides that better than time spent on the trail where your furry loved ones can enjoy the sights and smells of the great outdoors.

Bored dogs are often destructive dogs.  Getting them out for a walk helps burn off excess energy and leads to a happier and healthier dog.  A walk gives them something to look forward to besides chewing up your shoes or tearing the stuffing out of your pillows.  It’s no surprise that your dog gets so excited when they see you reach for their leash.  They can’t wait to get out on the trail and discover new adventures.

Walking your dog allows the opportunity to teach them socialization skills as well.  While out on a dog walk, your pooch is almost certainly going to encounter other dogs.  This provides a great opportunity to help your dog learn acceptable ways to interact with other animals.  As your dog makes new friends—both canine and human—you’ll see their confidence build.

Dogs aren’t born knowing how to walk on a leash.  Regular daily dog walks will teach your dog to follow your lead.  Dog walks are a great time to begin teaching your pet commands like “sit,” “stay,” and “heel,” especially if you take treats with you to use as positive reinforcement.

Regular daily dog walks will keep your pet active.  A sedentary dog will likely soon become an overweight dog and that can lead to potential health problems.  Keeping your dog active will help your pet avoid unnecessary weight gain and you’ll benefit from having a well-exercised dog which tend to behave better.  Dogs aren’t good at self-entertaining.  They need to release their pent-up energy and daily dog walks provide an excellent outlet!

Of course, with today’s hectic lifestyles, not everyone can take their dog out for a long walk.  Nor can they just run home for a potty break in the middle of the day.  With our daily dog walking service, you can rest assured knowing your furry kids are getting the exercise and stimulation they need to live a longer, happier and healthier life.

Life as a pet parent doesn’t need to be ruff.  So, if you live in the Dallas area, let On Call Pet Sitters provide loving care when you’re not there!
