Why does my dog get the zoomies?

Zoomies are generally caused by a build-up of excess energy which is then released in one short burst. Don’t worry it is completely natural behavior.

One of the best things you can do to help with the zoomies is to get your dog moving! If you own a dog, you have probably found yourself wondering “How much exercise does a dog need every day?”

Taking your dog for a walk around the block is a great start, and it might be enough for breeds with lower exercise requirements. Here are a few of our favorite ways to play with our pups:

  • Hiking. Dogs love the great outdoors just as much as you do. Take your dog along on your next adventure or explore some new parks and trails in your area. Tucson is full of dog-friendly hikes. If you need suggestions, send us a text and we will share a few of our favorites!
  • Fetch. Fetch doesn’t have to be boring. Shake up your dog’s fetch routine by making her run uphill to retrieve a ball, or by tossing a ball into the water. Alternate between balls, Frisbees, or other prized toys. We like to alternate between short and long throws to keep your dog on her toes.
  • Obedience. Obedience work might not seem like exercise, but practicing recall, retrieving, and reinforcing basic commands offers mental stimulation, and exercise. You can also teach your dog fun new tricks.

Our dogs are more than just pets!

They are our children and family. We know you hate the thought of your pet being lonely. The look on your pet’s face when you head out for work or on vacation can leave us feeling guilt-ridden. We get it!

We are licensed, bonded, and insured.

  • We’re so incredibly happy to have found a company and truly genuine people to watch our dogs. We have 3 dogs and we’ve never been able to travel without them unless a family member could help out. Ali, with Working for Wags, was the most incredible sitter! She watched them overnight for 4 nights and even spent a little extra time with them the day we were flying back in. She also helped with a very last minute house issue, which saved the day! The entire process was super professional and friendly, communication was seamless, and we will only be using Working for Wags, moving forward. A huge shout out to Ali!

  • I recommend 100% the service provided by Working For Wags. I found my 16-year-old cat well and relaxed when I returned from vacation. Frankie made it easy to arrange for someone responsible to attend to all his needs with lots of TLC. I received texts and pictures daily. I would hear back quickly if I had questions or needed to change some of the instructions already given. All my gratitude for their outstanding care.

  • I'd give them 10 stars if I could! The sitters are wonderful!! They are true animal lovers, and I trust them fully. One of my dogs has epilepsy, so finding sitters comfortable with the risk of a seizure can be tough. But, they came fully prepared and knowledgeable about what to do. If you love your dogs like I do, I highly recommend them!! 🐕💙

  • I can't recommend Working For Wags enough! They worked hard to win over my two timid/uncertain dogs during the initial meet and greet and the subsequent trial runs we had prior to leaving on vacation. The dogs loved Payton and she sent lots of updates and pictures. This is absolutely the way to go if you have dogs like mine that don't do well in a boarding facility environment. Working For Wags took away the stress (and guilt) of leaving my boys and made sure they had an enjoyable time while we were away.

  • We have used Working for Wags twice now, one for an overnight stay and this last time for a week long vacation. I am nervous leaving our pups; it helps a lot knowing they are in our home and not in a kennel. The communication was fabulous both times. I loved receiving pictures of our pups while we were away! Isabel was amazing! I have one pup who can be particular with people; she warmed right up to Isabel! We will definitely use Working for Wags in the future! Thank you for helping to make our vacation great!

  • Angela not only took care of all 4 of our cats each day but went above and beyond with pictures and updates everyday. She even watered our plants. I highly recommend!

  • Justeen watched our cat for 5 days while we were gone for an extra long weekend. She also watered our plants and took the trash out even though we had forgotten to ask. When we came back our cat, who can be withdrawn after we've been away, acted like we had only been gone a couple of hours. We're very happy to have found this company.
