Why use Wag! to get your dog walked?
If you're anything like us, your dog is your whole world. You spend a lot of time, money, and effort spoiling them with the best toys, treats, accessories, and experiences. Walking your dog is the highlight of your day, the best way to unwind. But sometimes, life throws us curve balls that prevent us from making it back in time for walks. Fortunately, you don't have to leave your pup alone when those unexpected issues arise. When there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day, dog walkers on the Wag! platform are standing by to ensure your dog gets the attention they need!
Benefits of daily dog walks
You might be asking yourself, “How often should I walk my dog?”. According to our guide on how often you should walk your dog a minimum of two 15-minute walks to potty and exercise are recommended for most dogs. Many will need one or two more during the day.
Also, spending quality time walking your dog is SO rewarding that some pet parents might wonder, "Is walking your dog really exercise?"
Short answer: Yes! Walking your dog every day is a great way to stay in shape. Daily 30-minute walks reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes, prevent inflammation and stiff joints.
Stimulate your pup's mind
Bored dogs are often destructive dogs. When they don't get enough stimulation, even trained dogs might resort to gnawing on furniture, peeing on your shoes, or digging up the garden. Whether you have a Greyhound or a Pug, a daily 30-minute walk will offer up all manner of new sights, smells, and experiences for your pup to soak up.
Keep the pounds off
Let's face it — we all love treating our good boys and girls to a tasty table scrap now and then. That's precisely why walking your dog daily is essential. Obesity in dogs is linked to an array of illnesses, including heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Both pups and people who exercise regularly live longer on average than those who don't. Daily walks ensure your dog's life is as long, healthy, and happy as possible!
