Dog Walking Service in the Algarve
Dog Walking is one of our main Services that we offer at Pet Sitting Algarve. Many dog owners refer to us to walk their dog for various reasons. For some, life is quite hectic and takes up most of their day. Some dog owners simply do not have time to give their dog a proper walk to drain excess energy. As a result of this lack of activity, dogs grow frustrated and bored. Frustration and boredom lead to a variety of unwanted behavioural issues such as anxiety, depression and destructive behaviour. We all know at least one person whose dog ripped the sofa!
A Convenient Dog Walking Solution for Dog Owners!
Our Dog Walking service is tailored for dog owners who cannot walk their dog for whatever reason. We cater specifically for those highly energetic and demanding dog breeds. High energy dog breeds just cannot go without their daily dose of exercise. It is heart breaking when we see our dogs bored and sad. However things do not have to be like that. We are here to provide a solution for both dog owners as well as the dogs.
Adequate Exercise is the Key
Exercise is the key to an effective dog walk, however this has to be measured and adequate. Adequate exercise means an amount and type of exercise that is enough to drain the dog form its energy but without over doing it and causing injury. This mostly depends on both the dog’s breed and age. Other environmental factors such as temperature also have to be taken into consideration. In the case of highly energetic dogs for who a simple walk is not enough to drain their energy, we usually recommend our Dog Daycare Service. The Dog Daycare service allows us to spend more time with such dogs and cater better for such highly energetic needs. Our Daycare service also includes free pick up and drop off.
A Dog Walking Service that Stands Out!
Free pick up & drop off
Our Dog Walking service is designed to help busy dog owners who already have too much on their plate! In order to make life easier for dog owners, we include free pick up and drop off to our Dog Walking service.
Picture & video updates
We believe that feedback is very important for dog owners. As part of our Dog Walking service we take pictures and videos while out walking with the pack. Dog owners will be able to access these through our Pet Updates Page on our website. Through this updates system, we reassure dog owners that their dogs are indeed gaining from our dog walks.
Socialised dogs only!
We only accept socialised dogs that are in no way a hazard to any other dog.
We always try to offer the best and safest environment possible for dogs. In order to do so, we always conduct a preliminary meeting to assess prospective dogs before engaging in any Dog Walking activity. In that way we make sure that our pack grows healthily and we put every owner’s mind at rest.
Physical & mental stimulation
Dogs need two essential components to be happy; mental stimulation and adequate physical exercise. Our service aims to satisfy these two essential components. The purpose of any dog walk should go beyond just a pee and a poo! Dogs need to be taken for proper walks where they can satisfy their instinctual needs. It is only through such Dog Walking that dogs can really achieve a balanced state of mind and body.
