If your dog doesn’t cope well with a change of surroundings and likes its home comforts, it would make sense to arrange walks. With this service, the sitter comes to your home to take your dog out, up to several times a day, depending on what you need. This is a straightforward option which is more and more sought after, by dog owners, who are often away from home or take many holidays.
Dog walking is generally chosen by owners who have busy lives and who’re not able to be with their dog during the day. If you’re thinking of going on holiday for several days or weeks, it’s not unusual to want to arrange dog walking for your pet. Owners have many different reasons for setting up walks, but they all share the objective: to guarantee the welfare of their pet.
If you choose to arrange walks for your dog, there are certain things you should do to ensure that all goes well. You are of course very familiar with your dog’s habits and behaviour, but you’ll be leaving him in the charge of a stranger during your absence. So it’s vital that you pass on all the relevnt information to the sitter when setting up the walks.
Before making a definite decision to book walks for your dog, you’ll want to know exactly how much it’s going to cost. In fact there is a specific pricing in place for this service plus additional costs which are unique to dog walking.
When you book dog walking, the sitter will need to come to your home up to several times a day. In order to avoid any misunderstandings with the sitter, there are various steps you need to take to ensure that all goes well.
Unlike with other sitting services, you will normally agree with the sitter how much time they will spend with your dog, in order to take it out for a walk. The length of the walk should be agreed in advance so that the sitter knows exactly what is expected. The average duration for a walk is between 15 and 30 minutes, but this can of course be extended depending on the needs of your dog.
