You must decide what is right for you and your pets. For inside dogs, we do a minimum of two (2) visits per day and as many as five (5) visits per day. Most people request three visits each day. It depends on your pet’s needs and your comfort level. Outside pets require a minimum of one (1) visit a day. Crated and confined dogs require a minimum of three (3) visits a day, (2) thirty-minute visits, and (1) 15-minute visit. For cats, we do a minimum of one (1) visit, every-other-day.
A well-exercised dog is a happy dog and is, therefore, less likely to display destructive behavior in your home. Also, a refreshing break during the day can help alleviate separation anxiety and provide a much-needed potty break. If you are gone most of the day, your pet is home alone; a daily walk will provide that much-needed attention when you are away.
We can certainly help train them to walk properly using various walking tools (Easy Walk harnesses, dog backpacks, treats, Gentle Leaders, etc.) that all provide positive reinforcement training. We’ve found most dogs that are learning to walk properly on a leash do best when on a consistent walking schedule of at least three days a week.
