Dog Walking Etiquette

There is no guidebook or specific rules about how you should walk your dog. But similarly to how you should behave in a public setting, there is a dog walking etiquette. So here is a couple of things you should and/or shouldn’t do while taking your companion.

Control your pet.
There are different levels of control you can exercise on your pet. While walking you should not let you dog walk-up to random people unless they say it is okay to do so. Some people are allergic and other afraid of dogs. Controlling your dog also means that it does not walk-up to other dogs. Some dogs do not tolerate stranger dogs, or are just afraid and intimated which could result in aggressive behavior. To avoid losing control on your pooch, keep him or her on a short leash especially in crowded environments. A longer lead may be used for more remote walking areas such as trails or parks. Always, keep your dog on the leash unless at the park or in a fenced area. You never know what or who might come out from behind the next bush. This is a safety precaution. Prevent your dog from barking too much. It is relatively okay once or twice but constant barking is a noise nuisance to the neighborhood.

Pick-up after your dog!
This may seem like the most obvious one out there, but there are way too many dog owners that do not pick-up after their dog goes to the bathroom. Be courteous to other owners and pets. No one wants to see, smell or step into what your pooch has left behind. A reason why there are only a limited number of beaches that allow dogs, is people not picking-up. Go out prepared and always carry bags with you to pick up after your pet. This allows for a clean environment at all times.

Know the limits of your dog.
Each dog and dog breed is different. Know how far your pooch can go. Choose the appropriate weather and terrain to keep both you and your dog comfortable. If you are training or conditioning your dog, make sure you do your research or consult an expert to provide only the best. Studying your pet’s behavior can help determine what type of environment is best.

There are three main dog walking etiquettes out there. Apply control over your pet when outside. Pick-up after your dog if he or she leaves a mess. Finally, make sure you know how far your dog can go. Overall, walking your dog should be a fun, relaxing, and enjoyable experience for both pet and owner.
