Essential Pet Sitting Professional


Benefits of Using a Dog Walker - For your Dog:

  • Regular exercise to ensure good physical and mental health
  • Exercise improves a dog's muscle tone
  • Running and playing can tire a dog so he is less likely to misbehave
  • Important socialization for raising well-adjusted dogs
  • Daily mid-day visits for puppies help maintain a consistent housebreaking schedule
  • Elderly and adult dogs need bathroom breaks too
  • Crate trained puppies need to get out every 3 - 4 hours for proper training and socialization. Over-crating and under exercising can result in a hyperactive, under-socialized dog
  • Walking provides routine practice for using basic commands such as "heel", "sit", "stay", and "come". (Dog walking is NOT a replacement for proper basic obedience training. We only support the dog's established training through repetition.)

Benefits of Using a Dog Walker - For You:

  • A helping hand when you have a busy schedule
  • No guilt at having a busy schedule
  • Adequate exercise can improve a dog's behavior in the home
  • Your dog may actually want to relax WITH you when you come home
  • Relieves your concerns about leaving your dog crated
Essential Pet Sitting Dog Walks
We have used Essential Pet Sitting since we brought home our husky, Cyrus, as a pup. Cyrus is now five years old and looks forward to Lindsay’s arrival each day for his walks. Lindsay is consistently compassionate and diligent.
