Don't Be Afraid to Turn to the Professionals

Many people seem to think that they have to do everything when they own a dog, from daily walks to keeping consistent grooming schedules. But in this day and age, it can be hard to follow such a rigid schedule. Whether it was a long work day, or you’re overloaded from professional and personal situations, there are reasons why your dog could not be getting the care that they need.

However, with apps and services to help your animal popping up everywhere, this could potentially change. Instead of promising your dog that you’ll take them for a walk tomorrow instead of tonight, why not get on an app and pay someone to do it for you?

Dog services are incredibly beneficial to both you and to your dog, and there are many reasons why.

Grooming

If your dog needs to be groomed, you should look around your local area for the best groomer. Of course, if your dog has long hair that needs to be groomed more often, you probably already know where to find them, but there are some dog breeds out there that could go without consistent grooming appointments. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take them.

Groomers have the right tools that can make your dog’s fur feel the best it ever has, which will make your dog feel the best they ever have. A professional grooming service usually includes bathing, drying, brushing, and then clipping and/or trimming. Your dog will be able to get the best service available, so why not take advantage of this?

For those worried about groomers and your dog’s safety, it’s worth noting that most groomers know how to deal with animals, both friendly and nervous.

Sometimes, you don’t know what you’re doing when you try to groom your dog yourself, and that’s okay. There is a reason why there are professionals, after all. Professional dog groomers have all the tools and items you don’t, and they actually know what they’re doing. Plus, groomers could give you lifesaving information. In some cases they will notify you if they find any odd bump or other abrasion on your dog’s body. Not only can groomers help with your dog’s fur and washing, but they can also help with your own dog’s health.

The great thing about taking your dog to the groomers is they’ll work around your schedule. If you find yourself incredibly busy or swamped at work, most groomers will work with you on a pickup time and date that best works with your schedule.

Dog Walkers

You’ve probably heard of all the apps and websites where dog walkers will come to your house and walk your dog for however long you desire. They’ll even track the whole walk so you know what your dog was doing, and where they were the whole time! While some people get nervous about complete strangers, there are many great apps and websites that require background checks for every single employee. Plus, you can always look at the reviews others have given them before making your final decision.

If you are consistently swamped with work and don’t have the energy to walk your dog, it’s okay! That’s why these apps and websites are so great. You don’t have to do anything, other than set up the appointment and pay the walker.

This can benefit both you and your dog exponentially. First, your dog is getting the exercise that it needs on a daily basis. Second, you can work it all around your whole schedule. Maybe you have the dog walker meet at your house right when you get home, or maybe you have a walker come to your house and walk your dog while you’re getting ready for work in the morning. If you want your dog walked three or four times a day, you can also set this up. It’s a great tool for any dog owner to utilize.

There are so many ways you can benefit from these services. All it takes is finding the right website or app, clicking which walker you want, and confirming the service.

Kennels

We’ve all been there: you’re going out of town or on vacation, but you don’t know what to do with your dog. You know you should take them to a kennel, but you’re scared and you don’t know why.

Many people don’t like taking their dog to a kennel when they go away on vacation, because people don’t like leaving their dogs behind. However, this is a vital service that can benefit your dog in the long run.

Your dog will probably be with other dogs in a kennel, which could be a great way for them to socialize with other animals (especially if they are a lone dog in a house). This will also help your dog become more accustomed to other people, as they will deal with and begin to trust the workers that watch and take care of them.

Now, taking your dog to the kennel for the first time is always tough. We’ve all been there. However, it’s more than likely the best option for them, if you don’t have anyone to watch them at home.

There are benefits to boarding your dog at a kennel while you’re on vacation, and you should always utilize these benefits!

As you can see, there are so many ways these three services can benefit both you and your dog. Whether it’s taking your dog to a professional groomer, hiring a dog walker to keep your dog in tip-top shape, or taking your dog to a kennel when you’re out of town, there are so many ways these simple services can benefit your pet.
