Dog walking Mindfully!
Mindfulness and such practises are all the rage these days. Dog walking is no exception to this. Some could argue that dog walking is the perfect setting in which to practice.
Mindfulness and being present are crucial whilst out dog walking. Being attuned to your surroundings, whether it be the surrounding nature or the dogs.
You need to remain focused on each step or you’ll quickly find yourself on your backside. This is ever more true during the icy months.
The dogs are even more aware when your focus slips.
The moment they see you distracted or not fully present, they will take their chance to explore and make their own fun.
This is absolutely why we do not listen to music, audiobooks, etc whilst out and about dog walking. It must also be said that we do not head out into the woods to be distracted by technology.
A small example of this can be found on our contact us page where I expressly asked that people send me an sms or email during the working day. Unless it is an emergency of course.
This in turn helps me to to be more professional and focused on the most important task; the dog walking. Your dogs crave and deserve our undisrupted focus and attention. It is my opinion that this makes for higher quality dogwalking. Whilst you don’t have to, I hope you agree.
The juxtaposition of chaotic calm during dog walking rarely needs to be disturbed by a ringtone.
