Dog Walking Frequently Asked Questions

Why Hire a Dog Walker?

As a pet owner, you always want what is best for your four-legged friends. Many people know that a daily dog walking regime is incredibly important for their dog’s health and well-being. The exercise, fresh air, and excitement are wonderful healing tools. Unfortunately, a busy schedule can make daily walks a challenge. That is why VIP Pet Services is here!

Our professional dog walkers work hard to develop a relationship with your pet. We provide plenty of love and reassurance during visits. Furthermore, we do not provide group walks, so your friend has our undivided attention during a daily walk. While on our daily walk, we are happy to implement your pet’s normal routines and reinforce basic commands, including “sit,” “stay,” and “come.” Lastly, we practice street safety skills, so your pet better understands the dangers of the world around them.

On average, our daily dog walking sessions last anywhere from 20 to 55 minutes, depending on your personal preference. We walk around the local neighborhood or to the closest park for a little exercise and frolicking in the grass. Each walk consists of plenty of exercise and playtime, fresh water, treats, and hugs and kisses – both because we love dogs and for reassurance and loving purposes!
