How to Hire The Right Dog Walker in NJ
Just because someone calls themselves a “pet sitter” does not mean they are qualified.
The vetting of online pet care services such as Wag or Rover can be concerning. Applicants take an online quiz, but there is no in-person interview or assessment of animal handling ability. Customers select dog walkers like how one picks an Uber driver: looking at ratings and availability. An in-home consultation with the owners and pets is not a standard procedure. The possibility of strangers coming into your home and the potential for an attack or a frightened animal that runs away is more likely. It has happened to walkers for each company. Walkers for both Wag and Rover have lost dogs and both companies have downplayed their responsibility and have hired attorneys to mitigate the damage. Wag even served one owner whose dog was lost with a cease and desist letter after complaining about its handling of the situation on social media.
The Peaks Pet Nanny has been in business since 2004 and is insured and bonded. We are proud to report that we have not had one claim to our liability insurance or honesty bond.
Why Your Dog Needs a Pet Nanny
Dogs crave a routine, and the benefits of daily walking are invaluable. Consistent dog walking promotes better health and behavior, provides mental stimulation, and prevents boredom. A bored dog often struggles with anxiety or depression, resulting in destructive behavior, especially in active puppies, working-class dogs, or any pup with excessive energy. Pent-up energy and boredom can be a problem. However, long, rewarding walks are the perfect remedy for our furry best friends. Having a professional dog walker is immensely beneficial for our clients and their beloved pups.
Regular Dog Walks Improve Health & Behavior
Just like humans, dogs need consistent and regular exercise to live long, balanced lives. The Association for Pet Obesity Prevention reports 54% of dogs and cats in the US are obese. The leading cause of obesity in dogs is a lack of daily exercise they need to stay fit and healthy. Luckily, with proper and regular exercise, many diseases can be prevented. Regular walks provide your pup with a way to relieve excess energy, which results in calmer behavior. When your dog goes on frequent walks, they will be less likely to engage in troublesome behavior, such as chewing, excessive barking, or having accidents.
Providing your dog with routine walks each day is essential for keeping them happy and healthy.
Dog Walks Provide Socialization & Stimulation
Not only does your dog receive beneficial exercise, but dog walking also stimulates the brain. When walking outdoors, your dog will feel, see, hear, and smell interesting things. It will boost their senses and mind.
Stimulation doesn’t only include seeing and smelling new things – it involves socializing with their Pet Nanny. While we may take this for granted, this dedicated time can often highlight a dog’s day. We usually arrive at a client’s home to find our furry friend waiting in the window for their Pet Nanny’s arrival. Encouraging socialization is essential for every dog’s wellbeing.
Not All “Pet Sitters” Are Created Equal
Pet owners might be tempted to hire an inexpensive teenager or ask the neighbor for a quick favor. While friends, neighbors, and teenagers might have good intentions, they most likely lack the necessary knowledge, experience, or skill to care for your pet if anything unexpected should arise. What will they do if your pet becomes sick, escapes from the yard or the house? Will they show up during inclement weather? Can they properly handle household emergencies? What happens if the person you hired now has a change of plans or a crisis? Do they have an experienced backup pet sitter in place? We receive many frantic last-minute calls from new clients because whomever they had in place for dog walking or pet sitting backs our last minute leaving them in a terrible jam.
Most people don’t realize dog walking, and dog sitting comes with numerous responsibilities. Dealing with unexpected situations and emergencies is part of our job. It’s essential for pet owners to carefully interview and hire a mature adult who is also insured and bonded. The Peaks Pet Nanny is responsible for your two prized possessions – properly caring for your beloved pets and your home’s security.
