If you’re like most Americans, you probably have plans to celebrate Independence Day in the United States. Many people have or go to barbecues and cookouts, some people go to pool parties, and others do other things to celebrate the holiday. Oftentimes, party and event plans mean that you need to leave your dog alone for an extended period of time.
If you aren’t able to include your dog in your July 4th plans, you need to make special plans to make sure his or her needs are met. Hiring a professional dog walking service will ensure that your dog is walked and given exercise when you aren’t able to do it yourself. If you are going to be gone for a while, your dog walker will also be happy to feed your dog and make sure he’s hydrated, especially with the crazy heat wave that’s enveloped much of the US.
Although many dog walkers require several days notice to walk a dog, and some will require a longer term contract and/or a meet and greet first, there are plenty of dog walkers who are looking for work and would be happy to accomodate you – even at the last minute. Please search DogWalker.com right now to find a dog walker in your area.
One thing that is very important to keep in mind is that the July 4th fireworks will probably scare the heck out of your dog. We recommend that you be with your dog when the fireworks display is going off so you can comfort him. Here are some fireworks tips for dog owners so you can be sure your dog stays happy and safe during the holiday.
