My name is Alex and I've been living in Santa Monica for a little over nine years now. I love that West LA is so good for getting outside for runs, walks, bike rides, and hikes, and being active has become one of my favorite past times. I grew up with dogs but haven't had my own in years, so I'm excited that this app gives me the opportunity to spend time with dogs again while getting my own exercise as well. I hope that I can match up with some athletic dogs that can run with me, as I know certain breeds need a lot more than just a walk around the neighborhood to really burn off their energy. I look forward to meeting you and your dog soon.

Dog Walking in Los Angeles

Dog Walking Fun Fact #1:

It’s a fact! Walking is a pawrific way to keep your dog healthy. Not only does daily walking help combat obesity and keep your dog’s muscles and joints strong, it also decreases their risk of arthritis, diabetes and a host of other conditions. And with endless sunshine and palm trees as far as the eye can see, Los Angeles is undeniably the largest muttropolitan area on the West Coast to hit the pavement with your pup.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #2:

Social dogs are happy dogs, and nothing excites a pack animal more than cavorting with their peers. Walks give your dog the chance to meet new dogs and people, and expands their ability to cope with new situations. With nearly half a million dogs living the good life in LA, you can rest easy knowing you won't have to look far for puptastic dog parks and beaches.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #3:

Got a dog who has too much energy? Are they chewing rugs or shoes, or causing mayhem in the house? That dog needs to get outside and walk! Regular exercise can eliminate many destructive behaviors that boredom can bring, and save your furniture and shoes! Take a walk to some pawtastic LA dog-friendly dining, stroll among the stars of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, or test your mettle on the dozens of hiking trails that thread throughout the city to get the wiggles under control.

Average Cost of Dog Walking in Los Angeles

How much does dog walking cost in Los Angeles? Many private dog walkers offer 30 to 60-minute walks, and can charge up to $50 an hour. And if you have more than one dog in your household to be walked, there is often an additional fee of up to $8 per dog.

 Dog Walkers with Wag! are thoroughly vetted and insured, and are true dog lovers. They pride themselves on giving your dog the personalized care they need. With 30-minute walks for $20, and 60-minute walks for only $30, Wag! also offers a walk for the less active pups out there. Our 20-minute walks for $15 may be just what your dog needs. Got more than one dog to walk? For only $5 per additional dog, the whole pack can get moving!

Best of all, GPS tracking from the Wag! app lets you know where your dog is at all times. Dog walkers with Wag! can provide live updates via text and video messaging, and leave a report card at the end of your walk to let you know just how much your dog enjoyed their day out.

Dog Parks in Los Angeles

With many pawsome Los Angeles dog parks, your pup has plenty to explore. If living like the stars is what your dog craves, spend some time strolling the pristine streets of Beverly Hills before heading to Los Feliz’s Griffith Park. Famous for its observatory, hiking trails, and the famous Hollywood Sign, your pup will surely be itching to run off leash in its 1.6-acre dog park that offers a separate section for small doggos and doggy water fountains.

Downtown LA offers dozens of restaurants, cafes, and breweries that welcome leashed canine customers where you can grab a coffee, brew, or meal. Work off those extra calories at the Grand Park Dog Park right next to City Hall. The Art District Dog Park, complete with colorful doggy murals and an area for small puppers, is another funky spot to sniff out some new canine compadres.

If the bright lights and big mansions are a bit too much for you and your furry buddy, head to NoHo, a cozy district jam-packed with pubs, vintage shops, and art galleries. Your pup will love visiting the Whitnall Off-Leash Dog Park, a 3-acre playground with drinking water and a small dog section. But for those dogs who need lots of land to roam, head over to WeHo’s Runyon Canyon Park, which houses a 90-acre tract of hiking trails and open space that permits off-leash dogs.

Does your pup crave sand between their paws? Then head to the outskirts since LA prohibits dogs on most beaches. Check out Rosie’s Dog Beach in Long Beach for a leash-free frolic in the sand and surf.

Wherever you and your dog travel, always have clean-up bags on hand to promptly pick up after your pup, and keep them on a lead no longer than 8 feet. If visiting off-leash areas, your dog should be fully vaccinated and licensed, spayed or neutered, and wearing a collar and tag with contact information.

Dog Walking in Los Angeles with Wag!

The opportunities for adventure are truly endless in LA, and your dog is sure to want to explore them all! You, however, may have other plans. If your little explorer needs to get out when you can’t, dog walkers with Wag! are there to get your dog moving!

With our thoroughly vetted and experienced walkers, your dog can enjoy a 20 minute spin, a 30-minute stroll or an hour long excursion around the neighborhood whenever they need. Book an on-demand walk for when you just can’t get home in time, or schedule a repeat walk to bring some sunshine into your pup’s life while you are away. Best of all, you can keep updated through GPS tracking, and text and video messages from your walker.

At Wag!, we not only have dogs in mind, but you as well, so we make it easy to get your dog the exercise they need. Just download the Wag! app to select a date and time, choose the length of walk you would like, and off your furry pal goes!

Dog walkers with Wag! can get your spunky Chihuahua, the most popular of dogs in LA, out for a pawfect patrol to keep them feeling secure. Bigger LA pups, such as Golden Retrievers and Siberian  Huskies who need more action will love frequent long walks. Even if you have an older Pug who isn’t as limber as he once was, Wag! offers Drop-Ins to keep your pup company at home.

No matter what your life entails, Wag! is here to help keep your pup healthy and happy. Book a dog walk with Wag! today!
