One of the greatest benefits of our service, at least from an owner’s perspective, is simply peace of mind. Many owners have told us they feel guilty that they are working all day and have to leave the dog at home. But we always reassure them that guilt is misplaced. It’s simply a factor of modern life, especially in a big city like Vancouver. Dog walking services help reduce you and your pet’s stress levels. You don’t worry about them getting exercise or soiling inside the house, and they get all the benefits of regular walks and attention form caring trained professionals.
If your working hours are set in stone, then organising a monthly schedule is the best option for walking dogs. It can also save you money on more irregular bookings. Where possible, we will assign the same professional staff member to your pet throughout its time with us. That way, it builds a relationship with its walker, creating a relationship based on familiarity and trust. However, we do also understand that even a set work schedule may be subject to some changes such as overtime or having to work late. We will always strive to accommodate any changes.
A comment we have often heard, usually from people that don’t have pets, is that owning a dog while working full time is selfish and irresponsible. We couldn’t disagree with this statement more! If anything, identifying and engaging a professional dog walking service such as Dog Walking Vancouver shows high levels of responsibility. It means you recognise that your pet has needs which you cannot always meet and that you have spent the time, and money, to ensure your dog is regularly walked and is a happy pet. Dogs are family members and that’s why so many people hire a dog walker to ensure that special family member is well looked after.
Like humans, dogs are comfortable with routines. These intelligent creatures quickly get used to the idea of schedules and things happening at a particular time. Your dog will learn what time you come home from work and will be sitting by the door before they even hear you. They also expect and get used to a routine from their dog walker. That’s why monthly waling schedules are so useful. It allows us to schedule interaction with your pet at the times that suit you and your dog. And it allows the dog to quickly learn when their walker is expected.
