Just like humans, a dog’s mind must be kept active to be healthy and happy. Regular daytime activity provides mental stimulation through territorial investigation. Along with the emotional benefits, there are physical benefits. A good walk is the best way to exercise a dog that may not move about much in your home or even in your yard. Aging pets must be kept as agile and fit as possible but may not be inclined for exercise without encouragement. Eldery dogs and some medications may cause the dog the need to relieve itself more often.
The work week can quickly become busy and stressful, which could easily affect your dog’s routine or exercise needs. A dog’s natural behaviour is to chew, dig, bark, and jump, especially when feeling bored, lonely, or not having an outlet for its energy. Making sure your dog gets plenty of exercise is one of the best ways to prevent behaviour problems. At least two walks daily help prevent elimination problems. destructiveness, separation anxiety and other common behaviour disorders.

KW walkies will come once or twice a day to feed your puppy, let him or her out and have a good play. It’s ideal in promoting good behaviour and a happy dog at an early age.
A young pup can suffer from two things - separation anxiety and a small bladder. The visits ease both issues. By providing a regular, reliable schedule for your puppies, they are better prepared to be effectively house/crate-trained and are less likely to display the typical symptoms of separation anxiety (destructive/unhealthy chewing or excessive barking/yelping).
Because of the sensitive nature of puppies and the 3-4 month period before they have all of their immunizations, your pup will stay within the confines of your backyard or within a prescribed area agreed upon by you before beginning the visits. This lasts until the puppy matches an age where he or she has had sufficient immunization.
Each visit lasts a minimum of a half hour. Idealy two visits a day when they are very young. A morning visit and an afternoon visit is best to reduce the length of time a young dog has to go without relieving him or herself, and the time they have to spend alone.
Your pet is very important to you and your family but because of busy schedules you can’t always be there for them. So for the times when you are unable to take them for a walk, give them that extra play time, or just keep them company let Karen at KW Walkies do the dog walking and pet sitting for you.
Karen’s motto of
loving care when you’re not there; is more than just words. She believes that all animals deserve compassion and love ... and after visits from her your pet will let you know she means it!
