A Pro dog walker in cold weather makes owners and dogs happy
I get the money thing, I don't get the time thing. Time is what you make of it, what you want to priorities. If you prefer going to the movies and fine dining over walking your dog the answer is to get someone else, preferably off lead and professional to do the walks for you.
If you can't afford someone to walk your dogs after all those movies and fine dining (or even just paying the mortgage) then try and dog pool - have someone you are friends with take your dog occasionally.
For every problem in your world, there is a solution. And if you are not thinking enough about your dog to provide the best life you can for it, why have you got it?
Walking your own dog early in the morning safety tips$1· Go where the park is fenced in
$1· Make sure the other dogs in the park are friendly
$1· Wear warm clothes, waterproof and bright ones so you are seen
$1· Walk at a reasonable pace to keep you and your dog warm - the whole point of the dog park is to have a dog explore, not stand around watching you having coffees.
$1· You should be aware of dog body language and behaviour and estimate yourself if your dog should be playing with another dog or allow the dog to approach it.
$1· Spend time midway through and the end of the dog walk allowing your dog to play with either you or other dogs. This is their play time and exercise time for the day, let them make the most of it.
I got into this business because I love dogs and want the best for all dogs, and the best is when they are social, because it means they are happy to be in almost every situation. It takes some time to get your head around regular dog walks, let alone off lead dog walks, but go to any park where you see people happily walking their dogs, and just talk to them about the benefits.
Daily off lead dog walks make the most real benefits, tangible and intangible that your dog will ever get in its life ... and remember, a happy dog always makes for a happy house.
