Do you need a dog walker if you work from home?
Updated: Jan 21
If you work outside of the home and have a busy schedule, hiring a dog walker makes sense. But even before COVID-19 the number of Americans working from home was increasing. So, if you’re working from home, do you still need to hire a dog walker? There are many reasons to still hire a dog walker, even if you’re working from home.
More Outdoor Time
Even if you are working from home, you probably still have plenty of work to do. Maybe you only want to take your dog out during your lunch break for a few minutes. By having a dog walker, your dog will be fortunate to have enough daily exercise, and return worn out. This takes a burden off your daily schedule. Additionally, you’ll never have to worry if a surprise meeting comes up, or if you want to go out for lunch or to do an errand, because your dog’s needs will be taken care of.
Not only will your dog benefit from increased exercise, but they will also benefit from access to knowledgeable professionals. Dog walking services like The Right Fluff have walkers trained in dog walking behavior and can provide tips and tricks to help your dog walk well on the leash or deal with anxiety. Access to a pet care professional also means that if you need to go on a last-minute trip you will have a trusted professional to care for your dog while you are gone.
Maintains a Healthy Routine
Pets require consistent exercise to stay healthy. Obesity in pets is responsible for illnesses that could be prevented by increasing your dog’s exercise regimen. A regular walk provides socialization, stimulation, and exercise for your dog. It also frees you from the obligation to keep a certain part of your day free for a dog walk. The convenience of not having to interrupt your work day to take the dog outside is one great benefit of hiring a dog walker.
