Having pets has been deeply embedded in our human nature from a long time ago. In the beginning, we tamed wild animals, not for their looks but rather for their usefulness. Among the first creatures we’ve ever tamed were wolves which later, through evolution became the dogs we know today. As time passed, we relied less and less on our pets for their usefulness and actually bred them in a way to please us visually and intellectually. The fearsome creatures we once used for hunting are now our fluffy little companions we can’t wait to see on our way back from work.
The pet culture evolved so much that we have all kinds of pets today. From regular pets like cats and dogs to tarantulas and bearded dragons.
Although most pets have no other useful purposes than to make us feel better, some of them are still quite beneficial in a lot of different ways.
Dogs, for example, are excellent. They can help guide us when we lose our sight, they can help us hunt, they can sniff out narcotics and work side by side with a police officer, but, they are also useful for ordinary people like you and me.
Dogs are part of the ”recreational pets” group. They require constant maintenance, and if you don’t want your dog to be dull and out of shape, you will have to walk them regularly. These walks are mutually beneficial. Sometimes we simply need a reason to go outside and without it, we won’t move from our chairs. Like dogs, we need exercise too, but it’s always easier to do it for somebody else other than yourself.
The daily walks no matter how short or long they are will improve your health by a lot. They will boost your stamina; you will catch some of that important, much-needed sunlight and you will feel great. Recreational pets are awesome for anybody who wants a reason to leave the house and go for a walk.
If you dislike ordinary pets and are more of an exotic person but you would still love to have a pet, you could take out for a walk bearded dragons might be just right for you.
These ”recreational pets” are a bit tougher to handle than most, especially when you’re not around and can’t tend to them and this might be a reason why you wouldn’t consider owning them, but let us stop you right there.
There are special services called ”pet sitting” which are essentially the same as house sitting or babysitting, just instead of a house or a baby, you hire a person to take care of your pet. So no matter which kind of obligations you have, business trips or even vacations, you can rest assured that your pet will be properly taken care of if you simply call and ask for a pet sitting service. A pet sitter will do everything per your instructions; they will walk your pet regularly, feed it or do anything you want or regularly do with it while you’re around.
