More about the course

Dog owners enjoy numerous health and social benefits by walking their dogs a few times a week. Benefits include improved cardiovascular fitness, lower blood pressure, stronger muscles and bones (built up by walking regularly), and decreased stress.

A regular walk is vitally essential for your pet's health too. Pet sitting benefits to you include: Knowing that your pet is in caring, loving hands, having the confidence that the pet sitter can deal with other issues - such as grooming, and vet visits, eliminating the trauma of having to transport and leave your pet, and not having to impose on family, friends or neighbours.

Is this course for you?

Spending time on walks with your dog can reduce depression and anxiety. Humans have an innate instinct to touch and feel and experience a physical connection with others. Dogs also share this fixed pattern of behaviour, allowing a physical bond between humans and animals.

Dog walking will provide a furry buddy with much-needed exercise and a chance to go potty outside. Pet sitting will provide some extra companionship for a dog.

Pet Sitting and Dog Walking allow your pet to burn excess energy, help them lose a few pounds, alleviate problem behaviours like chewing and barking due to boredom, give them different potty breaks, help with loneliness as they get one-on-one attention, and improve social skills and relief.
