Why Get a Dog Walker?

A daily walk isn't just a good habit. For your dog, it's nearly a necessity for optimal well-being. In Lake Mary, FL, where many of us own dogs, walking your dog for about 30 minutes to an hour daily can greatly enhance their mood, stress levels, and longevity. Regular walks also mitigate undesirable behaviors often linked to boredom.

However, while many dog owners manage to provide these vital walks during the evening, there remains a significant gap during daytime hours. Many dogs are confined to the house for extended periods—often more than 8 hours—which isn't ideal for their physical or emotional health. That's where the concept of mid-day dog walks by FurBabies Home Pet Care comes into play.

The Advantages of Mid-Day Dog Walks in Lake Mary, FL

We offer a dedicated mid-day dog walking service designed to address the unique challenges dogs face when their owners are away. Here's why this service is an invaluable addition to your pet care routine:

  • Essential Bathroom Breaks - While younger dogs are often good at 'holding it,' this isn't an ideal situation for them. Long periods without a bathroom break can lead to stress, irritability, and may potentially cause long-term bladder issues.
  • Stress Reduction - Being alone for prolonged hours can cause stress levels to rise in dogs. This emotional toll further compounds when boredom sets in. A mid-day walk serves as a pleasant interruption to this cycle, helping to de-stress your dog and making them less anxious for when you return home.
  • Encourages Restful Sleep - When you're away, one of the main ways your dog passes time is by napping. Sleep allows dogs to relax, but there's only so much sleep a dog can have if it's been inactive all day. A mid-day walk offers the physical engagement they need, making subsequent rest more satisfying and lessening the likelihood of destructive behavior.
  • Additional Exercise - While 30 minutes of physical activity is essential, more is usually better. Given our busy schedules, finding more than 30 minutes for dog walks can be a challenge. A mid-day walk fills this gap effectively, ensuring your dog gets the level of physical activity they truly need without burdening your evening schedule.

Most people cannot walk their dog every day for the amount of time that dogs benefit from walks. Many dogs require a minimum of one hour, some dogs two, and more than 1 or 2 hours is even more beneficial. Few people have the time for 30 minutes, let alone 2+ hours. Similarly, dog walks are better when spread out. Getting an extra 20 minutes of walking mid day is better than 30 minutes of walking all at once.
