Dog Walker Near Me
So, you searched for “dog walker near me”, that makes sense if the dog walker is near you, he/she is near your dog. Here’s the dog walker challenge. You find one, the dog likes the walker and the walker appears to like the dog. Time to walk the dog, WALK the dog. Now here’s the challenge. Does you walker know how to walk a dog? One foot in front of the other is not a walk, because now one foot in front of the other has to co ordinate with 4 paws. Those paws will stop to sniff, smell, pee and poo. Walkers have to learn the dogs body language because each of those four actions has a look, a posture, a circling behaviour, and usually a favourite spot.
As a critical observer of the new trend of Dog walkers, here are a few observations and solutions, which come from years of walking our own dogs, because if you have a dog – walk the dog- thats more than half the fun of having one around. Dog walking is not an activity to be out sourced. Dog walkers should be supplemental walkers, not primary walkers. Teach your dog walkers to be patient, vigilant and kind to the animals they encounter on their walk. Please do not give them choke collars to use if you do not know the abilities of the walker. Drive or walk by once in a while and check if the dog and walker are sitting on a road side corner!
