“The dog walker your pup deserves!”

I have been dog sitting and walking dogs for as long as I can remember. I grew up dog sitting for friends and family and often was asked to walk neighbors dogs. I have been Wag Walker for close to a year now and love it! My favorite part is forming relationships with dogs I walk regularly and meeting new dogs. I’ve walked everything from mastiffs to yorkies and am very good with dogs that pull. I am always ready to go if your dog is a fast paced walker but I also enjoy slower walks as well.

Dog Walking in Birmingham

With its unique geography and rich culture, Birmingham is an attractive destination for visitors of both the two- and four-legged variety. The city is flanked by mountains, including Red Mountain to the south and Sand Mountain to the north.

The Ruffner Mountain Nature Reserve, which is located in the eastern mountain, is one of the largest private nature reserves in the country. It covers more than 1,000 acres and has plenty of trails for dogs and their families to explore, providing beautiful scenery and a breath of fresh air along with glimpses of wildlife.

Remy’s Dog Park at Red Mountain Park is perfect for dogs that prefer to run without restraint. This off-leash park has three areas separated by dog size and temperament, allowing all dogs to feel comfortable and at ease while playing. At six acres, this is the largest dog park in the state and has more than enough room for dogs to get in some good exercise.

Wind down your night at home or at one of the many pet-friendly hotels in the city, including but not limited to the La Quinta Inn, Sheraton Birmingham, and Homewood Suites. Several of these establishments do not charge a fee for pets, which simply highlights the warm welcome a pet can expect to find here in Birmingham.

Railroad Park is an urban green space that covers 8 blocks and 19 acres in the Five Points South neighborhood of central Birmingham. Dogs and owners will enjoy Rail Trail, a spacious path that winds around a large lake, quiet streams, and bio-filtration marshes. Athletic and energetic breeds will love a game of frisbee on the 9-acre open lawn. If you and your fur-baby are in need of a little R&R, perhaps an afternoon nap under one of the property's 600 trees is more your speed. Be sure to take plenty of water, a leash, and doggie waste bags. Railroad Park is dedicated to remaining an eco-friendly, environmentally sound playground for humans and canines alike.

Boasting its title as the largest dog park in Alabama, Remy's Dog Park in the southernmost district of Birmingham is the perfect spot for a mutt-and-greet! When you first visit, you'll understand why owners breathe a sigh of relief and quietly thank the gods of city planning. Adventurous park goers can enjoy 15 miles of trails on the main campus of Red Mountain Park, on which the dog park is located. The doggie play area is divided into sections: large dogs, 0.7 acres for small dogs, and 0.3 acres for special needs dogs. It also conveniently features pet waste stations and shaded areas with benches for dog moms and dads to relax and admire their four-legged progeny.

The oldest neighborhood in Birmingham also happens to be one of the safest. Just two miles south of downtown, Rhodes Park offers 88 acres of public land to families of all shapes, sizes, and species. Observe the changing oak leaves in the fall and the tall pine trees kissing the sky in the springtime. This clean and quiet space is leash-on and waste pickup regulated. It's pawsitively the perfect place for a Saturday play date. Burgeoning young entrepreneurs, take note! There's plenty of room for more than one dog-walking business here, and judging by the number of young professionals living in the area, plenty of pups that need walking!

Ruff! Ruffner Mountain Nature Preserve sounds like it was made for dogs, doesn't it? In reality it was made for people and dogs are permitted, but it seems most dogs are in denial of this 'impawsible truth', so we won't ruin it for them. The preserve is located on the northwest side of town and features 14 miles of trails running through the over 1,000 acre property. In efforts to maintain the pristine and historic nature of the park, the Ruffner Mountain Coalition asks that you leave the grounds as you found them, by keeping your pets on-leash and not disturbing the remnants of 19th-century iron ore mines.

If your pup is looking for an excuse to impress the ladies with his spiffy, new bandana and you happen to have just run out of organic kale, The Market at Pepper Place is sure to make you both happy. Meet other dogs (and humans) while perusing the finest selection of homegrown goods, crafts, and produce. Located in the trendy Southside district of downtown Birmingham, this lively farmer's market is the nose-bumping, tail-wagging, weekend event of the season, running April through December. Pick up a pack of Blind Dog Biscuits and stop at Railroad Park, just a few blocks away, on the way to your next adventure.
