A dog walker is someone who will take your dog for a walk. They make sure they exercise, socialise with other dogs and people.
A pet sitter is someone who will provide love and care for your dog in your home or in our location. They usually provide food, water, and exercise and give them love and attention all day as much as the pet owners.
Dogs, like humans, need to have some form of physical activity and they come with advantages:
dogs that are exercised and relieved during the day feel better at night and sleep more soundly.
less time spent in a kennel (i.e. on holiday) - reduces boredom and stress levels, which can lead to separation anxiety and other behavioural issues
reduces the likelihood of a dog developing joint problems
less likely to be lonely/bored when their owner is at work or away on holiday
There are a few important matters to keep in mind when determining how often dog walks should be:
the dog's age and activity level (an older dog feels tired quicker than younger ones and are better off with a slow walk and sniff type activities)
how many hours a day your dog is left alone at home
number of household children or other pets that might be in danger from an unsupervised dog who gets too excited when they see them
The dog walker will take the small dog to a local park to play and run around for up to 30 minutes.
For medium dogs, they can go on walks in your neighbourhood or near your home where you want them taken, as long as it is safe. They'll need about 45 minutes of exercise.
For big dogs, you'll want them taken on a long walk in the park or near your home where they can run free and have some time to explore. A dog walking service will need about an hour with bigger breeds, especially if a dog prefers to walk slower than the average pace.
If you're not hiring someone to take your dog for walks, then they'll probably be bored and restless when left alone at home. This situation can lead to many problems (from not being exercised enough) such as:
jumping up on people who visit the house
dog destroys things left around for them to chew on (e.g. furniture and shoes)
peeing inside or outside of the home due to lack of outdoor physical activity
People who are experiencing any of the above issues must hire trusted pet sitters and nearby dog walkers to take care of their pets.

Taking care of your pets is never an easy task. From daily walks to vet visits, the responsibility of caring for a pet can bring both joy and stress into your life.
To help you with your dog ownership responsibilities, here are some essential safety tips to consider, especially if you still haven't decided on hiring a professional dog walking service:
it's not safe for a dog to walk on the street unsupervised, so take them somewhere they can be supervised.
if you're walking multiple dogs at once, make sure they're all on the same leash. If they're not, it will be hard to control them when one starts pulling, and you might trip over their leashes as well.
if a dog is aggressive or uncontrollable, call off your walk for that day because chances are they'll get worse if left unattended.
