I have worked with dogs all my life. As a child I helped with a family business raising border collies, I spent a summer working for a vet and as an adult I have fostered numerous dogs for local rescues. I have been through handler training for service dogs, and genuinely love the time I spend with my puppy family. Currently I have 4 dogs that have made my home their furever home. I have trained all but one of them myself, and since walking a large pack is a skill, I have made it a priority to work on and maintain great leash manners for all my personal pack and any fosters I have had.

Dog Walking in Phoenix

Dog Walking Fun Fact #1:

When you aren’t around, your dog may be twiddling their paws waiting for you. Bored dogs can get destructive looking for excitement, but you don’t have to come home to chewed-up rugs or shoes. Keep life exciting with daily walks to exercise your dog’s mind and body so that they relax at home. Spice it up with a trek through the wilderness at the Rio Salado Habitat Restoration Area, or a weekend trip to the dog-friendly RoadRunner Park Farmers Market.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #2:

Staying healthy helps you live your best life, and the same is true for your pup. Daily activity can lessen your dog’s risk of developing arthritis, diabetes and heart disease, conditions which can shorten your dog’s active years. Taking regular walks around the block can keep you two playing together longer. Get some extra cardio at one of several mountain parks featuring furbulous Phoenix trails.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #3:

Life is more fun with friends, and your dog agrees! But playing with other canine furiends isn’t only exciting, it can also help your dog learn good dog behavior, work on their manners, and build confidence which helps shy dogs conquer their fears. Help your dog be sociable with daily walks around your neighborhood, or to a Phoenix dog park, to meet new playmates.

Average Cost of Dog Walking in Phoenix

If you are considering a dog walker to keep your dog active when you are away, cost may be a factor. Most services and private dog walkers offer pupular 30-minute walks that average $25 per walk. Fewer walkers offer longer 60-minute walks which can be as much as $40. And some even charge an extra fee for late booking within 24 hours of the walk that can add up to another $5 per walk.

Wag! knows that the happiness and safety of your dog is important, but so is your pocketbook. Thoroughly vetted and insured dog walkers with Wag! can get your dog moving on a 20-minute stroll for $15, a 30-minute walk for $20, or a 60-minute trek for only $30. When life throws you an unexpected hiccup, you can always book an on-demand walk for the same day without any extra fees. And if your energy furball needs a lot of exercise, booking multiple walks in advance saves you another 15%.

Best of all, you can follow along your dog’s adventure with real time GPS tracking through the Wag! app. Whether your dog is a social hound or a shy pup, a report card from your walker at the end of each walk will let you know how much they enjoyed their day out.

 Dog Parks in Phoenix

You’ll find lots of adventure in the Valley of the Sun, but it’s even better with your best furry bud by your side. Explore North Phoenix along the lively streets of residential Paradise Valley, but don’t furget to stop at the Paradise Valley Dog Park! Your pup will love romping on these 2.4 acres full of grass and trees. With a separate enclosure for small pooches, there’s water fountains to keep dogs cool and hydrated, and seating for you.

The quiet North Mountain Village is known for its North Mountain Park, where you can hike the North Mountain Trail to the summit for pawmazing views of North and Downtown Phoenix. The area also offers a traditional dog park experience at the Rose Mofford Sports Complex, which features lush grass lawns in separate areas for big and small dogs, water fountains, and a few shady spots for those blazingly sunny days.

Just south in the densely packed Alhambra neighborhood, architecture buffs will love a stroll to the First Christian Church designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Be sure to treat your dog with a trip to Washington Park’s PETsMART Dog Park. With space for small or elderly dogs to romp safely, these 2.5-acres are a pawfect oasis for city pups.

Dogs living Downtown can take a stroll to the Margaret T. Hance Dog Park for some off-leash play. Big and small dog spaces are surrounded by iron fencing, and feature big trees, benches and a chilled water fountain with bowls to keep those active pups hydrated.

South Mountain Village near the southern border of the city is dominated by the 16,000-acreSouth  Mountain Preserve. With over 51 miles of on-leash trails, this is the place to tire out your pooch! If you spot any animals that call this mountain range home, give them plenty of space.

Before enjoying Phoenix’s pawrific dog parks, be sure your dog is fully vaccinated, licensed, and spayed or neutered. Always keep your dog leashed when entering or exiting off leash areas, and everywhere outside of them. Have clean-up bags on hand wherever your travel, and promptly pick up after your pup. The city also asks that you do not groom your dog at any dog parks, so keep the brush at home.

Dog Walking in Phoenix with Wag!

When The Valley is calling, but life is keeping you from the adventure, your pup can still play with Wag!

Pupular Phoenix breeds like active Labrador Retrievers and German Shepherds will love lots of 60-minute walks to stimulate their senses. Dog walkers with Wag! can let your Phoenician Chihuahua keep an eye on their neighborhood on a quick 20-minute spin. And if your Bulldog needs some exercise, a 30-minute meander may be all they can muster before another afternoon nap. With one-time walks, recurring walks, and on-demand walks, you can create the best experience for your canine pal. Even if you’ve got an older Shih Tzu who isn’t as spritely as they used to be, Wag! can Drop-In at home to put the wag back in their tail.

Getting your dog the exercise they need is as easy as 1-2-3! Just download the Wag! app, select a date and time, then choose the pawfect length of walk for your pup. You’ll never be too far away with GPS tracking, and you can share in all the fun moments through text and picture updates from your walker.

Don’t keep your dog from exploring Phoenix’s land of sunshine, book a walk with Wag! today!

There are no better spots for hiking with your dog than in the mountains that surround Phoenix. You and your pooch can check out Shaw Butte to trek the many trails and catch all of the ter-ruff-ic views. The paths are kept very clean and the park welcomes all on-leash, four-legged guests. North Mountain is also in the Pointe Tapatio area and offers adventures for hikers of all ability. You and your canine compadre can stroll on paved walkways or climb up steep, rocky trails to the summit, depending on what you're into. Be sure to bring water for the both of you, as Phoenix can get super hot during summer months. Either of these locations make for an outing like no other, and we're sure your dog will thank you.

This market brings all of the local goodness together in one spot. You can pick up fresh produce and organically raised meat so both you and your pup can feast like kings.

Dogs in Alhambra are in luck! This area of Phoenix has two good sized dog parks to choose from. In Washington Park lies PETsMART Dog Park, 2.5 acres of space where hounds can run free. There are sections for both large and small dogs to keep play fair, and there is ample seating in both sections for owners to relax and enjoy their time at the park. Watering stations and poop bags are on site, so you don't need to worry about bringing your own. This park has a tendency to get very muddy if the weather has been wet and sometimes must be closed due to flooding. The Rose Mofford Sports Complex also has a fenced in dog area, sharing most of the amenities as the PETsMART Dog Park. One different feature at this park is the walking path; a perfect way to get some exercise with your pup!

Dogs on-leash are welcome to explore Arizona Center, a collection of shops and restaurants all within walking distance of each other. Some of these businesses allow canine guests, just be sure to ask the staff before entering. In the middle of the center there are pathways through gardens heading to a fountain, the perfect place for an afternoon walk with your favorite fur buddy!
