SERVING ALEXANDRIA: DEL RAY, OLD TOWN, BEVERLY HILLS, PARK FAIRFAX & FAIRLINGTON PROFESSIONALS
Are you tired of feeling guilty when you leave your dog each morning, knowing it's going to be at least 9 hours before he gets outside again?
Maybe you're sick of racing home at lunch to make sure your puppy gets a potty break?
Or are you anxious about what minor destruction your canine companion will wreak on your shoes while you're gone?
Relax, you're not a bad pet-parent. You can honestly find a way to provide your dog's daily exercise and entertainment needs.
You probably know that a healthy dog is a happy dog.
And a well-exercised dog is healthier than a lethargic one. No matter the breed, all dogs
need some form of regular daily exercise and training reinforcement. Generally they need
more than their owners' busy lifestyles can provide during the work week.
Just like humans, dogs need to maintain an active lifestyle to keep their
joints, organs and skin in top condition. But like most of your dog-loving neighbors,
you don't have the time to walk your dog three or more times each day to ensure that
he's getting enough exercise.
The result is a bored dog. Bored dogs are more prone to behavior issues
like chewing (themselves or your very favorite NineWest or Cole Hahn shoes), anxiety
disorders, and even depression. You can have an active but not anxious dog
who is happy to see you when you get home.
I'm Peggie Arvidson, owner of Peggie's Pet Services, and since 2003 I've worked
with hundreds of your colleagues and neighbors to help create activity and
exercise plans that suit the needs of their canine companions. Whether you're a lawyer,
doctor, RN, non-profit or government executive, or active duty military personnel —
if you've got a dog you love who is not getting enough exercise, attention or potty breaks each day, I've got a plan to help you!
