Just like humans, our dogs need exercise each day to help them stay healthy and fit. However, sometimes, your schedule doesn’t always allow you to take your canine companion for his or her daily walk. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that your dog needs to stay cooped up inside. At D’Tails Pet Service, our dog walking services in Howard County, MD can ensure that your pup gets the exercise they need to stay healthy.

What To Look For in a Dog Walker in Howard County, MD
One important thing to look for when you’re looking for a dog walker in Howard County, MD is whether they have training in dog behavior. They should also have canine first aid and CPR certifications, and carry a first aid kit for dogs on each walk. This preparedness shows that they’re able and willing to help your pet if an emergency should arise. The staff at D’Tails Pet Service have these certifications.
Another thing to consider when you’re looking for dog walking services in Howard County, MD is how long the walk will be. Depending on your dog’s age, breed, and tolerance for exercise, some dogs may need a longer walk than others. At D’Tails Pet Service, we offer two options for dog walking. These options include:
- 15-minute walks: $14
- 20-minute walks: $18
- 30-minute walks: $22
It is equally important to consider whether you need a dog walker for one dog or two. Some dog walkers may not walk more than one dog at a time. Others may charge an extra fee for an extra dog. For instance, at D’Tails Pet Service, for each extra dog, we ask for an additional 5 dollars. That allows us the time and energy to give each animal the care and attention they need and deserve.
Additionally, if you’re getting dog walking services in Howard County, MD, you should also look into the process that your dog walker will use. Some dog walkers walk multiple dogs at once, while others take each dog for an individual walk. At D’Tails Pet Service, we walk each dog individually, unless your pets can be walked together. Our process includes the walk, treats, if you provide them, and fresh water afterward.
