— Buckhead Paws and owner Mark Shaver have posted an informative article to help pet owners identify a series of questions which will establish the professionalism of the dog walking pro. In addition, further questions are offered to help decide if a particular professional is a good fit for the canine companion. Choosing the best dog walking service is important to avoid putting the pet and property at risk. The professional who is selected should run a legitimate business. Reviewing the website and checking the customer testimonials will help to decide, but additional questions are provided in the blog article.
A professional will be bonded and insured and will be able to pass a background check. The safety of the family pet is the reason for ensuring the dog walker has the necessary skills and experience. The training of the pet professional should include basic care and animal behavior. The training should also include pet first-aid and CPR. Medication training may also be important for the pet.
Asking the pet worker to describe their procedures for handling emergencies, such as a lost pet or an injury, is helpful to the peace of mind of the owner. Communication between the owner and the professional should go beyond just an emergency contact number list. The dog walker must provide dog walking services in every weather condition. A determination of any memberships in professional organizations is another way to check out the professionals qualifications.
The Buckhead Paws question list includes another series of queries designed to determine whether a specific professional is a good fit for the pet. Some of the answers include where the pet will be walked, how it will be transported if necessary, and what type of leashes are used. Owners should determine whether the pet will be unleashed and how many dog walkers are utilized. If the professional walks more than one dog at a time, it can be a problem for some pets. Checking with the professional about special needs of the pet is another factor. It may also help to determine if there are additional services available.
