Benefits of Dog Walking for Dog Owners

April 18, 2022

Dog walking has many benefits for dogs, many of which we highlighted in our previous two posts. But, what are the benefits of dog walking for dog owners?

Most of our clients are highly dedicated, but there are times when they have a hard time meeting their dogs’ needs. Sometimes, peoples’ professional and personal demands take precedence over walks, visits to the groomers, etc. but it doesn’t have to be that way.

That’s where we come in. At Shoreline Happy Paws, we pride ourselves on being a helping hand, a partner, and a support system for busy families that want to be sure their pets get what they need, no matter what life throws their way. Established clients can request services at any time, and we will always do our best to rise to the occasion.

Daily Pet Care Benefits

Many of our dog walking clients hire us to care for their dogs while they are commuting from long days at the office. These clients request daily dog walks that keep their dogs on a healthy routine. Their dogs aren’t the only ones that benefit, however. Busy families and professionals love the convenience of having their dogs walked midday. That way, they don’t have to rush home, worried about what they may or may not find when they arrive. 

Back-up Pet Care Benefits

Some of our clients don’t need our services every weekday but enjoy many benefits from their relationships with us. If they plan a day trip, they can ask for our help to give their dog a break while they are away. If they typically have a busy season at work that demands more of their time, or kids in seasonal sports that include travel, dog walkers can help on an as-needed basis to back-up families when they need our help.

Emergency Pet Care Benefits

Dog walkers often serve clients during very challenging moments in their lives. Be it a severe illness, a medical procedure with a long recovery, an unexpected death in the family, a trip they hadn’t planned on taking, etc. we have helped clients face the unexpected when they need it most. 

It’s hard to imagine being unable to walk, hospitalized, etc., and not having a close friend or family member to take over our pet’s care. Clients with established relationships with Shoreline Happy Paws can simply reach out for our help and we will do everything in our power to make it happen, turning emergencies into more manageable situations.

At Shoreline Happy Paws, one of our main recommendations for new pet parents is to establish a relationship with us as soon as their new pet comes home. Clients can prepare for anything by registering on our online software and setting up a consultation to establish services,. When registered, dogs can get midday walks and pet sitting visits whenever their families need the convenience and peace of mind that our professional pet care team consistently provides.
