Looking for a Seattle Dog Walker

Seattle Dog Walker

A friend of mine from Seattle posted a message on Facebook a couple of days ago asking if anyone knew of any dog walkers in Seattle. Of course, I told him he should check out DogWalker.com and do a search for a Seattle Dog Walker.

Unfortunately for my friend, there were no dog walkers listed! In the last 2.5 months, over 120 dog walking companies have signed up for listings on DogWalker.com, but none of them are from the Seattle area.

There are a few other larger cities in the US without dog walkers listed on DogWalker.com, although I can’t think of many off the top of my head. If you happen to know a dog walker in Seattle, you might want to let them know there’s a good opportunity to generate some business with a listing.

Your friend will thank you!

Thank The Dog Walkers Who Brave the Snow

Dog Walkers in the SnowThis winter sure has been something on the east coast. Here in New York City, we saw over 20″ inches of snow today, bringing the total to around 47″ (in Central Park) for the season. Considering that the average snowfall amount annually is just 17″ inches, this has been quite the season for snow!

Many people are able to make special accommodations with work and children when the snowstorm hits, but not dog walkers. I saw plenty of dog walkers in New York today, braving the horrible conditions to ensure that dogs in their care get the exercise they need and the relief that is required.

Likewise, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and other northeast cities have seen exceptional amounts of snow this season. In the next few days, please take some extra time to thank your dog walker. Walking dogs in the snow isn’t necessarily bad, but in some cities with poor snow removal capabilities, it’s much more difficult.

I waded through six inches of sloppy puddle several times today, and it wasn’t fun. I saw plenty of dog walkers doing the same. Sometimes it’s a thankless job, so let’s make an extra effort to thank our dog walkers!

Chilly Dogs Coat for a Chilly Dog?

Chilly Dogs Coat

I am originally from New Hampshire, so the cold weather in New York City doesn’t usually bother me. I wear a jacket in the winter, but it doesn’t seem nearly as cold as it was when I was growing up. When I take my dog Lucy (a 2 year old 25 lb puggle) for a walk during the winter, I don’t know if/when she should wear a coat. I’ve read that dogs don’t usually need to wear outerwear, but I feel guilty when other dog owners and dog walkers pass me on the side walk!

Generally, when it’s raining out, I will put a lightweight dog jacket on Lucy, but that’s more the keep our furniture dry when she gets home. When it’s very cold (in the teens and 20’s), I will also make certain she wears a warmer coat to keep her from getting the shivers. The problem is that Lucy HATES wearing coats. It’s somewhat amusing because she sits and refuses to budge sometimes when she wears a jacket. Maybe it’s the coat, but we’ve tried a couple of different brands/styles and she just doesn’t seem to like wearing one.

Lucy is very friendly with a white boxer named Fancy, and Fancy wears a Chilly Dogs coat when she goes outside in the winter. Fancy has a much thinner natural coat than Lucy, but she doesn’t mind wearing her jacket. Maybe Fancy’s disposition is different than Lucy’s but she isn’t fussy when she wears a jacket. I also saw another dog wearing a Chilly Dogs jacket today, and he looked happy to wear it. I am thinking about getting Lucy a similar coat, but I have a few questions:

  • When should a dog like Lucy wear a coat outside (temperature/weather conditions)?
  • What brand of coat is best for dogs if I am looking to keep her comfortable more than fashionable?
  • How sturdy are Chilly Dogs coats?
