We are proud parents of a Philadelphia School District kid. (Go Nebinger Elementary!) We absolutely adore our daughter’s teachers and we know they have their work cut out for them each year. As the 2022/23 school year kicks off, teachers in Philadelphia return to their classrooms with busy schedules and endless responsibilities. (A new math curriculum in Philly this year? Yikes!) We’re starting to hear from teachers who are preparing their pups for the school year ahead.
Are you heading back to the classroom in Philly? Wondering if you should hire a dog walker?
Here are some benefits:
Peace of Mind for YOU:
By using a professional dog walker, teachers can rest assured that their dog’s physical and emotional needs are being met while they focus on their work. Most dog owners have left their dog at home alone at some point and know how conflicting that can feel. It can lead to guilt and stress, even when doing something fun. We can help provide peace of mind with daily adventures for your furry friend, while you’re shaping the minds of the next generation.
No one said being a teacher was easy. And while we won’t make promises we can’t keep about taking ALL of the stress away, we CAN help to keep your pooch engaged, entertained and exercised while you’re in the classroom. If we take care of a few walks each week, YOU can have more time when you’re OUT of the classroom for family, friends, and hobbies, leading to a healthier and happier lifestyle for you. (We know, for many of us, our dogs ARE our hobby!)
Socialization is essential for a dog's development. Our professional dog walkers ensure that pups safely interact with other dogs and humans during walks, promoting better behavior and social skills. We know how to handle reactive dogs, social dogs and dogs that swing both ways, and are happy to tailor each and every walk to each individual dog’s personality and preferences.
Exercise is Everything:
Regular exercise is vital for a dog's physical health, and our employees are trained to provide the safe, personalized adventures needed to keep dogs healthy and fit. We work one-on-one with each dog to ensure a completely customized walk. Is your dog a social butterfly and would love a trip to the Schuylkill River dog park to romp with other dogs? Or maybe your dog is an elder-pup more interested in sniffing the grass at Washington Square Park? Working on potty training a new puppy? No stress, we have you covered!
Employees = Consistency + Safety:
Here at The Monster Minders, we do not use independent contractors. All of our dog walkers are employees of our company that have gone through ongoing training to make our team the best in Philly. Educators (and everyone for that matter) can trust that their dogs are in capable and trusted hands. Our professional walkers are experienced in handling different breeds and temperaments, ensuring the safety and well-being of the pups in our care. With nearly a million walks completed in Philly, we have the history to give you peace of mind.
Unleash the JOY!
By using a professional dog walker, teachers can alleviate stress, maintain a healthier work-life balance, and enhance their dog’s overall well-being. As the new school year commences in Philadelphia, we are here to support teachers, because happy teachers (with happy dogs!) make happy students. Hiring a dog walking service is a paw-sitive choice that benefits both teachers and their beloved pets. Reach out to us today to unleash the joy for your dog, while you provide a joyful environment for Philly's students. (And we thank you for it!)
(Tip: And don’t worry if you need to pause dog walking each Summer. We have a system in place to fit our teacher-pups back in every Fall. We’ve been Philadelphia’s favorite dog walking service for over 18 years and have worked with countless educators for a smooth transition back in the classroom.)
