Everybody’s circumstances are different, and there are many reasons why professional dog walking may be right for you and your dog. A change of job, long work hours or working shifts may mean that your dog is alone for many hours at a time. An operation, illness or injury may mean that you are now struggling to provide enough exercise for your dog. Professional dog walking can be really helpful if your dog is displaying undesirable behaviour at home such as chewing, barking or aggression. This behaviour often stems from lack of mental stimulation, even if you are home much of the time with your dog. Using a professional dog walker is an excellent way to keep your dog active, healthy and socialised, and Little Brown Doggie can provide care and solutions that your dog will love!
Puppies who have not finished their first vaccinations yet, or who are not quite ready for ‘big dog’ walks can benefit from pet sitting visits. Older dogs who may require more gentle or special care may also be more suited to pet sitting visits, which can be tailored specifically to their needs.
Home visits are ideal for any animals who would prefer to stay at home whilst you are away. Cats in particular are often much happier cared for in their own environment, but pet sitting is also a very good option for dogs who have been re-homed through Rescue organisations. Pet sitting visits are excellent alternative to putting your pet into a cattery or kennels, and can even be more cost effective if you have several pets. If you are going to be away from home for any reason, Little Brown Doggie offers flexible options for pet care, with regular updates for your peace of mind.
