The Wag! app is great for times I can't get home to walk Rafa. The walkers leave a nice recap of my dog's behavior! Best of all, Rafa absolutely loves meeting new people who come and walk him!
This is the best thing for my dog and I. Harvey loves getting to meet new people and going on long walks. I’m not worried about him not getting enough exercise!
My wife and I are happy with Wag! We've used both sitting and dog walking services. It's nice knowing we can have a nice date night knowing that Dash is safe, and is having fun also!
I've been using Wag! for a little over 6 months and really love the convenience of being able to have someone take care of my pup while I'm away for work.
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!
