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!
