Dog Hiking Club for Dogs in Golden, Lakewood, Genesee,

Introducing Dog Hiking Club!
Summer is here and with it amazing hiking!
I have decided to start a hiking Club for Dogs.
It is a group hike for dogs to various hiking locations in the area.
This will help make it easier to get those dogs who don’t do well in the summer heat out for their exercise without getting too hot.
It will also add a little variety to the dogs regular routine!
Plus it is a great opportunity for dogs to get a little extra socialization!
The Cost is $20 per Dog, (additional dog per household fee is $7)

How to keep your dog busy while you are away

Have you ever walked into your house after a long day at work to find that your dog has been VERY busy all day...Or, do you just worry that your dog is bored while you are away.  It is incredibly important to keep your dog busy while you are away.  If you don't give them jobs to do, many will find their own entertainment...One of the things I do for my dogs Sampson and Boomerang.  I have a toy basket with a wide variety of toys in it.  There are of course their favorites...Sam's Tennis balls and Boomer's baby (stuffed bunny).  But what they both love is when I leave for the day and I give them each a Kong that has been filled and frozen the night before.  I will vary what I stuff it with, to keep things interesting.  I find when I do this, my dogs are much happier.  Another tip is.  I put the toys away at night and rotate in different toys.  Just like little kids they get bored with the same thing every day.  By making it a treat to play, they look forward to play time!  Now, when I return-I usually come home to happy dogs who have just been playing with their toys.  They are of course happy to see me.  But, it helps to know that they are happy while I am away.

Who Needs a Dog Walker?

Who Needs a Dog Walker?
Before I became a dog Walker...I thought this was a luxury item for people.   was wrong. If you own a dog, you should hire a dog walker.  

Some people require more extensive pet care than others.  This is one of the great things about hiring a dog walker. You can customize your pet care services  to meet your and your dogs individual needs.

Here is a list of times that people need a dog walker:

  • When you are working.  Unfortunately we often have to work long hours and don't have the time to give our dogs the exercise/potty breaks that they require.

Refer a Friend to Dog Walking Pals and you both will receive a free  30 Minute Walk/Play Service.

Protect your Pet from the Hot Summer Heat

Summer is almost here.  At this time of year it is very important to remember our pet's safety as we enjoy the summer sun.

 If your dog is anything like mine, than they are always wanting to go for rides in the car.  As tempting as that is, in the summer this is not always a good idea.  This might be a good time to hire a dog walker or pet sitter to give your dog the attention they need when you are going to be gone for extended periods of time.  

Every year thousands of dogs die in cars from overheating.
