There are so many benefits of daily dog walks for both owners and dogs. Ideally, you would take your dog out every day if you could, because as a dog owner you are responsible for the health and well-being of your pet. But if you don’t have the time or energy that your dog requires due to the demands of your career, family, or commuting, or if you are physically unable to take your dog out for regular exercise, I would recommend using a professional dog walker like Man's Best Friend.

In caring for your dog this way, you may also free up some more time for yourself without sacrificing your pet’s health.

Dogs crave the stimulating sights, sounds and scents that only the outdoors can provide with the sky above and the earth below. Just get out the lead and you know how excited your dog gets! And once they are outside you notice how your dog is transformed from a sleepy couch potato to an energized, alert animal. The sheer variety of stimuli outdoors can help dogs maintain mental sharpness, while the exercise helps maintain physical strength.

As they are incredibly intelligent creatures, dogs can become bored and unhappy when they are not stimulated. Bored dogs may become destructive around the home, causing expensive damage. As a damage-prevention measure, hiring a dog walker can pay off! Additionally, dogs are social creatures. When they go outside with a dog walker, marking territory, sniffing around and meeting up with other people and dogs is an important way for them to interact with the world at large.

A good power walk or playtime with “safe” doggie friends will satisfy its need for stimulation, companionship and exercise.

Have you had your neighbours complain because of your dog barking all day whilst your at work, or maybe they do bark but your neighbours are to nice to say anything. The reasons most dogs bark are that they are bored. Just a 30 minute walk could be all that is needed and it sure beats receiving a letter of complaint from your local council.

Certain breeds require more exercise and mental stimulation than others. But with any breed, regular exercise is a must to prevent the dog from becoming overweight. Maintaining a healthy pet is much smarter than dealing with the problems that arise from inactivity such as obesity and canine disease. For good health and well-being, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. A regular routine of walking and playtime may be exactly what your dog needs to maintain its health for many years.

Should you call on the services of Man's Best Friend you can get peace of mind knowing that your faithful friend is getting the exercise and stimulation that she/he craves and deserves.
