Cutie Alert: Charlotte and Wilbur from Edgewater!

Edgewater Dog Walking The work of a dog walker can sometimes be difficult. When we are dodging thunderstorms in the middle of summer, trudging through the snow in the winter, cleaning up an accident, or trying to figure out how to get a dog who misses it’s owner to eat, we sometimes wonder why we’re in this game.

But then, we get to hang out with the awesome pets and we remember–we love a job that lets us hang out with adorable puppies and kitties all day. There are some real cuties out there and when they wiggle up to us or come purr, it reminds us of all the great things we love about the job.

Here are a couple of the cuties we have the pleasure to walk and take care of.  These two are adorable aren’t they!

Charlotte and Wilbur of Edgewater are so cute, they are hard to resist! We are always careful when walking these two in the heat, as we are with all of the dogs we care for, especially those who aren’t heat tolerant.

If we aren’t able to do a long walk with the dogs because of the heat or a thunderstorm, we will spend time with them inside. We will play with their toys, cuddle with them, or just sit quietly if they prefer that.

Either way, we’re glad to spend time with the adorable cuties we care for all over the county!

Tips From Your Favorite Dog Walker: Help Us Help You!

Gambrills Dog Walking As we look towards a week of rain, rain, and more rain it seems like a good time to refresh all of our Tails on Trails family on what we do during summer storm season.

Tails on Trails is big on making sure that we keep our clients as happy as their pets. We guarantee the amount of time we will spend at your house, and we are able to back it up with GPS technology.

However, on days like today, we have to be careful about how we care for your pets. When there is thunder and lightening, we will spend as little time outside as possible. We will do our best to adjust our visit schedule to try and work around the coming storms.  Sometimes we are able to do a normal walk in between the storms, but there are times we have to cut our walks short.

On the rare occasions where we cut our walks short, we do our best to make sure your pet will go the bathroom before we return to the house. Sometimes we are lucky and we know where your dog’s favorite spot is. Other times, we aren’t so lucky. If we aren’t lucky, we’ll often try to squeeze in a short second walk if weather permits it.

We will always walk in the rain.  In fact, for many of our walkers, a nice little trek in the rain during the summer is fun.

If we do cut our walk short, we will spend the same amount of time at your house as we usually do. We just focus on doing indoor activities with your pet.

All of that being said, if you want to make sure your pet gets the best visit during the summer storm season, here are some helpful hints.

1) If your dog has a favorite spot to go the bathroom and we don’t know where it is, let us know. We’ll head there right away in the event that a storm is coming.

2) If you have toys your pet likes, leave them out on rainy days. We’ll  be sure to use them when playing.

3) If you have old towels, leave them by your front door. We will clean off your pet’s paws when we head into the house, dry them off so they don’t shake everywhere, and give the floor a good wipe.

4) If you have a pet that is made nervous by storms, let us know. If they have a thunder coat, special meds, or anything else we need to use reassure them, we’re happy to do it.

5) If your pet has a rain jacket and you prefer we use it, leave it out. We will be happy to put it on them!

With these tips and more, you’ll ensure a great visit even in the rain for your pet.


Your Favorite Dog Walker Honors Those Who Have Served

Our jobs as dog walkDog Walking Annapolisers and pet sitters at Tails on Trails is based on taking care of pets whose owners aren’t able to at the time. This is because they are out of town or unable to be home to care for their pets for one reason or the other.

We do our best to get to know each pet well, to provide them with comfort in the absence of their owner. It’s always nice when we can tell that the pets are happy to see us. But at the end of the day, we know that the pets are waiting for their owners.

For our clients who are taking a day trip or visiting family out of town, their pets get to see them as soon as they come back.

But for those who are making the ultimate sacrifice for our country, they are separated from their pets for much longer, facing much more dangerous conditions serving our nation.

On this Memorial Day, we would like to commemorate the ultimate sacrifice our men and women in uniform make. Thank you to everyone who has served our country!
