-- The winter months can be tough on you, all that snow and ice. However, your dog probably doesn’t care that there is snow over his head. He still wants his walk or romp every day. For some dogs, being inside during winter can drive them stir crazy. You may come home to find your furniture destroyed or your favorite shoes chewed up out of shear boredom. Dogs will find ways to “entertain”
themselves or to release their stress. And it might not be a way that you approve of. Kim K9 Kompanion walks dogs in any type of weather, be it rain, snow, or just plain freezing cold temps! Kim says, “Just one half hour walk a few times per week can give your dog the physical and mental stimulation that she craves and help her feel relaxed and calm all winter.”
Owner Kimberlee Welch, a certified dog walker, opened Kim K9 Kompanion in May, 2010 because she noticed that a lot of her co-workers at the time “stressed about getting home in the middle of the day get their dogs out”, when they needed to be in meetings. She feels, what better way to “work with dogs” than taking them out for a walk each day! “You really get to know a dog’s temperament and personality when you walk them several times a week”, states Ms. Welch. She is a 2009 graduate of the Monadnock Canine Academy, holds her CAP 2 in clicker training, has taught dog training classes and is studying to earn her CPDT-KA (Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed) through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers.
