There are many people looking for pet walkers and sitters today.  Dogs need to be taken out for walks.  Who do you go with?  Who can you trust?  Should you pay more money or less?  Pet sitting and walking services can add up.  It all depends how much and what you are looking for.  Pet Walkers and Sitters can go from as low as $10 hour and higher.  But who are you getting?  I had a pet walker charged quite a bit of money and stole from me.  Make sure you check references and insurances to make sure they are paying for insurance and are doing the right thing.  Not many are insured but they are good with animals also.  I also know others who want to just start up because they think it’s easy money.  Doesn’t work that way.  So a lot to think about on Pet walkers and Pet sitters.

Now you have the Pet walkers and sitters who are Trainers.  You pay more but you get a lot more in return.  Your dog is getting their walk your cats or other animals are being taken care of just like above but there’s training involved.  Whereas, the pet walkers let your dog pull and go where ever they want, trainers tend to teach you dog good leash manners to walk next to you but you would need to continue with the training to keep your baby walking next to you.  Food issues they can work with the pet and show you what they are doing so you can do it to correct that behavior problem.  Any issues with the dog you can get consultation from them.  Puppies would be great start where the trainer can get the training started so you can continue with the same training techniques.  You would research and see which trainers are certified.  Find a trainer that uses positive training.  Negative training with shock collars and choke collars can be used incorrectly where you can and most likely will harm your dog and then you have a whole set of new behavior problems that will take very long to correct and need to keep your pet isolated from triggers from attacking other pets or people.  If you want a negative trainer than they are out there.  But remember positive trainers won’t help with a dog that is dangerous after the fact.  I had someone who trained her dog to attack.  Negative training with punishment.  Whenever I go there the mastiff goes after me.  I can’t fix that in a positive way.  I had the dog to a certain point but to go in to walk her on my own I would be shredded to pieces.  I had to let them go.  They will need to go back to the person to modify that behavior which will never be good when they began and the issue will always be there.  Trainers tend to be a little more money or around the same pricing as Dog Walkers and sitters.

Something to consider and think about which best way will work for you and your beloved pet.

If people think it’s funny and a joke to do such things, it’s not cool.  I have nothing to say to such people anymore.  It will come back at you.  To many stressed and emotional people these days who don’t know how to balance themselves.  I can’t tell you how many people who think they are angels get sick or something bad happens in their life and they have the audacity to say why do bad things happen to good people and not bad people?  Really?  Maybe think about it for a minute.
