Ollie is a two-and-a-half-year-old mix breed (American Eskimo Dog, Black and Tan Coonhound, Collie, Siberian Husky, Terrier group). Ollie had a rough start as a puppy; he was left at a landfill in Louisiana with one of his brothers at 6 weeks old. Ollie was then taken to a shelter and next to a rescue organization (PA Caring for K-9’s). Ollie was fostered for longer than usual due to his timid nature. When Ollie was adopted, it took him a while to warm up, but soon began to snuggle right up to us!
With the help of his big sister Penny, (star of our last pet spotlight), Ollie has come a long way in the past two years and is now much quicker to trust new people. Even the adoption organization and foster mom were surprised at how much he came out of his shell after spending time in our loving home. He just needed a caring home that was patient and understanding of his personality to help nurture him to feel more confident. He loves to play with his furry friends and snuggle up on the couch. Ollie is great at catching treats or ice in mid-air, even from a distance. Ollie has been such a great addition to our household and our time spent earning his trust has been so rewarding.
All these rainy spring days got us thinking about how it can keep people from getting their dogs outside. Sometimes dog owners shy away from taking their dog for their usual walk because of the weather, but your dog still needs their exercise! This is your guide to make things a little easier for your trek into the spring showers…
Dress appropriately for the temperature, but also for the rain. Waterproof shoes are a good idea, but be sure that they are appropriate for a walk. Bringing a large umbrella can also help keep you dry.
Some dogs will tolerate rain jackets or even rain boots. If that’s the case with your pup, this is a great option to keep them dry. If your dog won’t tolerate rain gear, your large umbrella is great to keep your dog dry as well. Taking a break with your dog under cover, like large trees, where they can do their business is a great idea.
Prepare for the Worst
I know my pups love to get muddy in the rain, so I always leave towels by the door before we leave. When you get back, you can grab the towel and dry them off before they have a chance to shake or stomp their muddy paws on your favorite rug.
If you have the space in your backyard for your dog to run, try a nice game of fetch. Your dog can get out, go to the bathroom and get their exercise in a shorter period of time. The energy they exert running around after a ball can be shorter than a leisurely walk and get out more of their energy.
When you hire a professional dog walker, you don’t have to worry about them getting their exercise when the weather is bad. A professional dog walker will make sure that your dog gets out for their exercise — rain or shine!! Hiring a professional beats any alternative because we are trained and have the experience to keep your pup safe and return them home happy and tired.
Your pet (most likely) doesn’t care about the weather, but still needs their exercise. Use these helpful tips (or our services) to make sure they get it.
Meet Penny, the furry face behind the name of our pet service company! Penny is a three and a half old lab mix who was rescued from an Alabama shelter. She was brought in as a stray after being attacked by another dog. Penny didn’t let that affect her fun-loving spirit and she is so sweet with every dog she meets.
Penny was our first dog together as a family and is the pup that inspired us to want to spend our days with as many furry friends as possible. She is the best big sister to her three siblings – Ollie, Abbey and Nymeria (you’ll meet them soon!) She is the biggest sweetheart and is the leader of our resident pack; she loves to run around and is looking forward to welcoming new friends to the yard to play fetch with her!
