Miami’s French Bulldogs: The Importance of Tailored Dog Walking Services
Do you own a French Bulldog in the bustling city of Miami? With the shift back to office work, ensuring your Frenchie gets their daily dose of exercise can be a challenge. But fret not, Miami’s best professional dog walking services, with plenty of experience walking Frenchies, is here to help!
Understanding the Frenchie:
French Bulldogs, affectionately known as “Frenchies,” hail from France and have been charming us since the late 1800s. With their playful and affectionate nature, they’re perfect for families and apartment living. But don’t be fooled by their size; these energetic pups need their daily dose of exercise. Even your lazier Frenchies should get a good walk in a couple of times a day. Our dog walkers always keep their special needs in mind, particularly their short noses.
Dog walks and playtime for your Frenchie:
French bulldogs can achieve their daily exercise needs in a small yard or on daily dog walks. Since they’re short-nosed dogs, our dog walkers take extreme care to avoid them overheating. The short nose can cause problems in the throat and breathing passages, limiting the amount of air reaching the lungs. As a result, their panting is less effective, making it hard for them to cool down. This is a huge deal when walking Frenchies in Miami’s heat- especially in the summer! Our dog walkers make sure to keep them in the shade, take many breaks as needed, and monitor for signs of heat exhaustion.
Dog walks are great for Frenchies, as are other forms of exercise, such as chasing balls and playing hide and seek. Frenchies love to chase after things, but sometimes will not return them. It’s super cute, but a little training on learning to “drop it” will help! Sometimes our dog walkers are hired to take a Frenchie out for a quick potty break, and then come back in for plenty of air-conditioned playtime.
It’s worth noting, since so many Miamians have pools in their backyards, that special care must be taken with Frenchies around pools. Since Frenchies are very top-heavy, most people don’t put their Frenchies in the pool. You can teach them to swim and how to exit your pool. There are actual pet professionals who will come to your home and help train your Frenchie to stay safe! Please consider investing in training them to learn to swim and how to exit a pool safely.
The Challenge of Returning to Work:
As Miami’s workforce transitions back to the office, your Frenchies might feel the change. Those midday strolls and playtime they’ve grown accustomed to? They’ll miss them. That’s where our professional dog walkers step in, ensuring your Frenchie stays active and happy.
