Dog walking in Muncie’s Westwood historic addition is a great place to walk, but not if your dog that pulls on leash! Having a dog that pulls can be uncomfortable for you and it can make your hands, shoulders and arms hurt. And that’s if you stay upright on your two feet! Imagine what can happen if your dog is so strong he pulls you to the ground?

Dog Walking Around Ball State and Westwood Addition
In this video recorded in Ball State’s historic Westwood Addition, you’ll see a chocolate lab named Battle walking next to his handler, most of the time, I say most of the time because he did MUCH better when the phone wasn’t on him 🙂 What you WON’T see is him pulling, lunging and barking incessantly at people and motorcycles. This is because his mom hired us to walk him 3 days a week (and show her our techniques). We worked with him on his leash manners – and the proof is in the pudding!
If you have a dog that pulls on leash, contact us. Spring is here and it’s a perfect time to focus on this behavior and get Fido on board with a regular walking routine.
Importance of Dog Walking
There’s a misconception about dogs. Many people think that if they have a yard then their dog doesn’t need routine walks. That belief has led many dogs to become lonely, isolated, unsocialized and can actually lead to aggression. Dogs MUST have new surroundings and be stimulated, both in their mind and body. Can you imagine how boring it would be if you had to stay in your house, or maybe just your bedroom, for an extended period of time?
Routine walks with an experienced and professional dog walker can help your dog with negative behaviors. Regular walks can help your dog burn off excess energy and if you have a NEW DOG, regular walks done in the right manner, will help you get started on the right foot with your new friend.
Leave him tied up in the back yard or just roaming free when you open the door won’t do anything to promote a happy, healthy, socialized and polite dog.
Committing to using our dog walking services is an investment. Our prices are flexible. We give you a discount for multiple walks in one week.
Dog Walking Prices
Here’s an example:
1 or 2 walks per week cost $18 each
3 or 4 walks per week cost $15 each
5, 6 or 7 walks per week cost $12 each
You might ask why someone would want to book multiple dog walks in a week. Here’s some reasons:
- You hours at work change and you can’t get home at lunch time
- One of your parents or family members become sick and you need to be with them
- You get into an accident and can’t walk your dog
- You need to have surgery and can’t walk your dog
- You go through a life crisis and need a little extra help with walking Fido
These are just some reasons we’ve been asked to jump in and help with dogs. Dogs of all sizes and breeds. We don’t discriminate and as long as your dog can be handled by a stranger (but not for long) we’d love to help. Ready to set up services? Go here to get started.
