Whether dog owners are facing illness or injury, or slowed down by joyful events like babies or weddings, the gift of dog walking will make their lives better. It’s that simple.
The New “Get Well Soon” Card
Sometimes it’s hard to know what to do when a loved one is hospitalized or injured. You want to help—but how? Or perhaps your parents are less mobile than they used to be. You’d love to take over their everyday routines, but it just isn’t feasible. If your loved ones are pet parents, then dog walking is one gift that will really make a difference. Their pets stay active and they get peace of mind. Win-win, right?
Better Than Baby Clothes
Do the expectant parents have a dog? Then dog walking is the gift they actually need. Sure, they’ll get plenty of blankets, bibs, and board books at the baby shower. But what about their pet? She’ll need extra attention when Baby arrives—which is just when her parents will be exhausted. With a friendly, local dog walker who can come right to their door, they can rest easy. Their pet gets personalized attention and plenty of exercise, and they can focus on sleeping while the baby sleeps.
