We talk a lot about mid-day dog walks here at FurBabies Home Pet Care. If you own a dog, chances are you have a general understanding of why dogs need walks. Dogs need exercise. They need bathroom breaks. They need attention. But a mid-day dog walk is typically around 12 to 3pm, and you’ll probably be home from work at around 5. Is that mid-day dog walk really that important?
The answer is: absolutely yes.
Every dog is different, with their own personality and needs. But most dogs have specific qualities and health needs that make a mid-day dog walk very important. For example:
Finally, not all exercise is the same. 1 hour of exercise is great, but two 30 minute exercises are even better. In human studies, two 30 minute exercise sessions are typically (although not always) more beneficial than one one-hour session. It depends on the activity and what your fitness goals are (in humans, if you’re trying to gain muscle, 1 hour of training is better), but for most canine needs, those multiple walks are likely to put your dog in better long term health.
Mid-day dog walks are not just a luxury. They are a great choice for pet owners that want to give their dog better overall care. If you’re in the Lake Mary or Sanford area and want to inquire about our professional dog walking service, please contact Furbabies Home Pet Care, today.
