Top 10 Reasons to Hire a Dog Walker in Miami

You may have seen our dog walkers having fun with our pet clients around Brickell, Downtown Miami, or Coconut Grove. Chances are, you’ve probably thought about hiring a dog walker yourself at some point. Maybe you’ve had an unusually long day at the office that kept you away from home, or you’ve had to turn down happy hour invitations so you can rush home to relieve your pooch. Maybe this doesn’t happen often… and then, maybe it happens too much and you’re left wondering whether you should have hired a dog walker months ago.

We think you probably should! Aside from relieving your mental stress of leaving your pup alone for eight hours at a time, your dog really benefits from daily breaks, exercise, and tender loving care. Dogs crave companionship, playtime, and a good exercise session (tailored to each dog’s individual needs; for example, English Bulldog puppies need to tread carefully). Regular stimulation, exercise, and companionship help shape your dog into the best he or she can be, and leave them relaxed and eager to snuggle and spend quality time with you when you return home.

There are plenty of reasons to hire a dog walker, but you especially might want to hire a professional dog walker if:

  1. You work full time, or leave your dog home alone for long periods of time. Just like humans, dogs need to relieve themselves throughout the day, and should not hold it for more than 6 hours.
  2. You have a new puppy in your home! Puppies that are potty training MUST be let out more often than older dogs in order to help potty train them and avoid accidents. Puppy potty times increase with age: a 1 month old puppy can typically hold it an hour, a 2-month-old 2 hours, and so on.
  3. You prefer to not leave your dog at a doggy daycare. We understand that some of our pet parents don’t want to expose their dogs to disease or fights, and while many of the dog daycare facilities are reputable and excellent locations, this is a personal choice.
  4. Your dog is gaining weight due to lack of exercise while eating the recommended daily amount of food.
  5. Your dog is acting out, chewing your tables, favorite shoes, or showing compulsive, repetitive behaviors.
  6. You don’t leave out pee pads for your pup and don’t leave access to a fenced-in yard for bathroom relief. Keep in mind older animals sometimes need relief more often due to their prescription medications and general health.
  7. You are unable to walk your dog yourself due to physical circumstances, be it illness, surgery, or anything else. Some older clients adopted bully breeds and need us to tire out these athletic dogs for them!
  8. You keep finding accidents throughout your house despite training and limiting of water and food.
  9. You want an experienced professional who is licensed, bonded, and insured, and who is trained in handling dogs on the street, as well as in pet CPR and first aid.
  10. You love your dog and want her to be entertained, enriched, and cared for as your own child would be.

If any of the above reasons resonate with you, our dog walkers are happy to help! We will be your pups’ companions and teachers while you’re away at work (or even play and vacation), so that they blossom into the best pups they can be. Our pet sitters and dog walkers have taken dogs out for fun breaks, walks, and runs in many neighborhoods, including: Brickell, Downtown Miami, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, South Miami, Pinecrest, and Palmetto Bay.

It’s the perfect spot to relax and enjoy, with beautiful views of the bay, lots of chairs for relaxing, and especially around the holidays, when they have a great big Christmas tree and menorah.

Looking for beautiful, pet-friendly hotels and residences in the area?

1. Epic: We care for clients who live at the elegant  Epic building in Brickell (it seems like everyone has a fur kid of their own here!). We know many a cat that enjoys the sparkling views of Biscayne Bay from the lofty towers. Waterfront living is perfect for that discerning dog or kitty! Centrally located, there are no limits on how large or small your pet can be.

2. Atrium: We also love visiting our cat and dog friends at the Atrium in Downtown Miami, where our clients can literally walk to work. It’s a little older than the other buildings, but our clients really enjoy the location!

3. met 1: One of the most beautiful residential buildings in Downtown Miami, met 1 is pet-friendly and located right by everything you need, including dog-friendly Bayside Marketplace, the American Airlines Arena (go, Heat!), and the performing arts center. The interiors are high-tech and spacious. Homes have walk-in closets, perfect for kitty hideaways, and the dogs in the building really enjoy the private, high speed elevators… it gets them to the riverwalk that much quicker!

Looking for a Miami pet friendly hotel? Epic, a Kimpton Hotel, gets our paw print of approval. This eco-friendly boutique hotel is known for its sleek décor, winning service, and attention to detail. They offer evening wine tastings, complimentary yoga mats in each room, a wonderful spa, and a great restaurant in Area 31 that offers sustainably-caught fish and sources its produce from local, organic farms.

Best of all is the Kimpton Hotel Very Important Pet program. They accept any pet regardless of size or weight at no extra charge and no deposits- very unusual in Miami! Pet bowls and a pet bed are offered during your stay, as well as dog leashes and plastic bags for the walks (extra points for those!).
