Most dog breeds were developed with a specific purpose in mind, for example, sporting, working, herding and so forth. Consequently, whether your pet is a purebred or mixed breed, chances are he carries genetic traits that drive him to pursue an activity. Many modern day dogs don't get opportunities to do what their breed instincts tell them to do. In addition, it's rare that a dog will exercise on its own, and your backyard doesn't provide the variety of sensory stimulation most dogs need to ward off boredom. Dogs need walks for both exercise and mental stimulation.
1 in 3 dogs are overweight. Regular walks and exercise are essential to the health of every dog. Generally, people walk their dog for 4 reasons: socialize, mental stimulation with new sights and smells, exercise, and training. Dogs like to go for walks to get outdoors, sniff and engage with their environment, exercise, and perhaps socialize with people and dogs outside the home. There is no reason that a walk cannot encompass and meet all the needs of both humans and dogs.
You can negotiate with the dog walker where to bring your dog for a walk, normally it will be parks around your area. Here is what to expect from each walking session:
- Your dog must get interaction with the walker (games, fuss & treats)
- Exciting surroundings to explore
- A few other doggy friends but not large packs walks, for plenty of play and socialisation (suitable in age, size and playability)
- No risky group walks – dogs supervised at all times
- Fresh water and a towel down after every walk
- Regular updates and pictures of your baby (as one of the function in our app)
A 15- to 20-minute walk usually costs between $15 and $17 for one dog. A 30- to 40-minute walk usually costs between $18 and $22 for one dog and a 40-minute to an hour-long walk usually costs between $22 and $27 for one dog. Most dog walking services do not charge by breed, just by the number of dogs. Please negotiate via the messaging feature in the app before you hire the dog walker and pay through PetBacker for your peace of mind. PetBacker will assist you in getting a few dog walkers to give you offers and quotes for your selection. Always engage a dog walker with good review and more trust points instead of looking for the best price.
