Dog Walking

Come home to a relaxed, happy, well-exercised pet.

Why your dog needs a dog walker

Dog walking benefits your dog’s physical and mental health.

Boredom and lack of exercise are the cause of many dog behavioral and physical problems.  Physical and mental stimulation on a daily basis will soothe your pet’s body, mind and spirit.

Physical Benefits 

Regular walking with Houston’s Best Pet Sitters’ dependable dog walkers will help:

  • Expend excess energy
  • Keep dog’s muscles toned
  • Keep dog’s joints healthy
  • Keep dog’s urinary and digestive tracts healthy (and avoid “accidents”)

Emotional and Mental Benefits

Regular walking with one of our dog walkers will help:

  • Relieve your dog’s boredom when you’re away
  • Reduce destructive behavior in the home
  • Keep your dog happier and less anxious
  • Give your dog the chance to “be a dog.”  Sniffing, exploring and being outdoors are important to your best friend!

If any of these describes you, you need a dog walker:

Are you a working pet parent?

  • Long hours at work?  Houston’s Best Pet Sitters offers dog walking to give your best friend a bright spot during the day.
  • Tired of rushing straight home from work to walk your dog while your co-workers go out for a good time?  Our dog walkers will give your dog exercise and companionship while you enjoy an evening out with friends.  Let Houston’s Best Pet Sitters give you back your social life!
  • Dreading walking in the door because your dog is hyper?  Or because you find chewed-up shoes, destroyed sofa pillows, shredded paper—or worse?  Houston’s Best Pet Sitters will give your dog much-needed exercise to keep his body healthy and his mind occupied.

Do you have an older or disabled parent with a dog?

  • You know the health benefits of dog ownership for older adults—reduced blood pressure, increased mental health, decreased loneliness.  Your mom or dad loves their dog, but just can’t walk long enough—or fast enough—to give their beloved pet the exercise dogs need to stay healthy and happy.
  • You’re concerned that your older parent may get tripped up or get pulled off their feet and fall during a walk.

Are you facing recuperation from illness, surgery or injury?

  • You’re well enough to be home, but not feeling quite up to brisk dog walks yet.  But your dog needs exercise and potty breaks.
  • Your doctor has restricted your activity while you recover.  No lifting, bending, etc.  Who will take your dog out for much-needed walks?

Do you just want to give your best friend something they’ll enjoy?

Dogs love going for walks.  They love being outside in the sunshine and fresh air, having a change of scenery, stopping to sniff and explore, stretching their legs, and seeing the neighborhood.  Chances are, your dog spends most of the day alone inside while you’re away.  Doesn’t your best friend deserve a bright spot during the day?  Let Houston’s Best Pet Sitters’ award-winning dog walkers help you make your dog happier, healthier, and more fun to be with!

Complimentary In-Home Meet and Greet

What happens at a Houston’s Best Pet Sitters Meet and Greet?

Before your first pet sitting service, your friendly neighborhood sitter will come to your home to meet you and your pets, answer your questions, and gather information about your pets and home. We’ll spend time letting your pets get to know us. Then, when we return for pet sitting visits, your sitter will already be a friend.

Melanie says, “When I started Houston’s Best Pet Sitters and went to my first in-home consultations, something great happened.  After meet and greets, many pet parents would visibly relax, shake my hand, and say something like, ‘I feel SO much better!’ Houston’s Best Pet Sitters was giving pet parents peace of mind and the ability to travel without worrying about their pets. For me, providing that relief from stress became addictive.”

Here at Houston’s Best Pet Sitters, we understand that you’re entrusting us with pets who are precious to you.  They are members of your family.  Click or call today and schedule your pet’s very own free meet and greet. Find out for yourself why our clients (both two-legged and four-legged) trust us for care and comfort.
