Anchorage Dog Walkers was started to provide attention and exercise to dogs who are home alone while their owners
are working or on vacation. It is important for a dog's quality of life to have at least 30 minutes of exercise each day to
prevent boredom, to stay healthier and for its overall well-being. Anchorage Dog Walkers understands that all dogs
have different needs so we do our best to come up with a suitable exercise program for each pet in our care. For the
dogs who are young and active, we can provide longer walks or runs so they can release some of their energy. For
the dogs who prefer to sniff around, we can provide a more leisurely stroll.
We specialize in dogs who lack social skills or could use improved manners. Our goal is to teach dogs to walk politely
with a variety of dogs in multiple settings. It is important for dogs to have social outings where they feel comfortable
and relaxed, not afraid or anxious. If your pet would like a fun outing during the day, could use better social skills or
improved manners, Anchorage Dog Walkers may be able to help!
Our walkers are all animal lovers who love the outdoors. Our walks are not only enjoyable and beneficial for the dogs,
they also allow the walkers to get outside and to be active! Anchorage Dog Walkers provides ongoing training to their
employees so you will receive the highest quality service. We are prepared for a variety of weather conditions and
always have the pet's best interest in mind. We can leave you notes each day to describe where and when we went
on walks and any other important information. We will always be watching for signs of fatigue (panting, dry mouth,
dogs looking for shade, etc.) and will take appropriate measures to avoid overheating, dehydration, or illness. In
snowy weather we will keep the dogs' blood flowing so they stay warm and we will clean their paws of salt, ice or snow
pack. In the summer we will provide water, shade and breaks as needed. While you're at
work or on vacation, you can relax and be assured that your pet is safe and is being treated as one of our own!!
