Advantages to Hiring a Dog Walker

Advantages to Hiring a Dog Walking ServiceWe, at Lake Country Dog, believe that for dogs to be physically healthy they need to be mentally healthy as well – one cannot exist without the other! When a dog does not get enough physical exercise it can cause them to have anxiety or aggression issues – problems that do not occur naturally in dogs. A dog playing in the back yard does not provide enough exercise. They are, by nature, pack animals and, because of this, it is helpful to a dog’s mental and physical health for them to spend their days playing in large groups. It is in this “pack atmosphere” where dogs develop a hierarchy which helps them to understand who’s in charge at home with their human families! When we are walking the dogs we like to let them feel as though we are their “pack leader.” It’s reassuring to them to know
they don’t have to be in control and can be the follower. This allows them to avoid feeling any pressure and they can just enjoy the physical activity. 

Aggression is not a normal emotional trait for a dog – in nature they use aggression to compete for food/territory but NOT as an emotional response to a situation.
Aggression can be a sign that your dog does not possess a normal balanced state of mind and is in need of something to bring him/her back to his roots (dogs are born with a naturally strong and confident demeanor, it’s situations that humans put them in that cause them mental distress.) Also, any hyperactivity you see in your dog is a direct signal telling you that they aren’t getting enough stimulation during the day. This lack of stimulation can lead to many dogs experiencing separation anxiety during the day. When they are at home alone all day we find that dogs often have behavioral problems. At Lake Country Dog we are able to provide them a healthy atmosphere and give them the attention they require to keep them from chewing up your favorite shoes or the leg of your coffee table!

Doggie Day Care

Is your dog destroying your home while you are at work? Do you want your dog to gain socialization skills? When your dog comes to Lake Country Dog they get quality care and will make lots of puppy friends!

Why Daycare? Due to physical and mental needs being met, your dog will be better behaved, happier and more enjoyable. When you come home tired, they come home tired. Misbehavior brought on by boredom or stress is reduced or eliminated. No matter what size or breed, dogs require a great deal of exercise to stay healthy. A short walk once a day is not nearly enough. Socialization and interaction with a variety of different dogs and people will keep them safer and more at ease when approached by dogs outside of daycare. img_1005 We are like no other daycare facility around.  We offer a higher intensity curriculum (both mental and physical) with smaller groups of dogs.  We max out at 15 dogs per day.  Because of this we re
quire that each dog comes a
minimum of 4 times a month to form bonds and as to not get stressed when they do visit.  We also drop your dog off at your home by 3 pm so you don’t have to worry about picking them up at the end of the day.  What we would need from you is a key or garage code to enter your home.  We are BONDED and INSURED.  I started out as a dog walker almost 10 years ago now and am very familiar with respectfully entering client’s homes as to not disturb anything.  Keys are kept in a locked key cabinet at our office with no address or details associated with each key. Same goes for any garage code given.  References are available upon request.

Day Care Hours of Operation:
Tuesday thru Friday
7:00 am – 1:30 pm 

(Drop off between 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm)

  7. We supply each dog with an orthopedic raised bed in their kennel or cage-free boarding area.
  8. We have GREAT add-on’s like peanut butter Kongs or doggy ice cream before bed!  We even have essential oils flowing through our facility all day to promote relaxation and calm (at no additional fee)
