Hi my name is Erin Hinton and I have had dogs all my life. I currently have 2 lab and golden mixes. I have been dog sitting and walking for the past 8 years. For the last 4 years I have also trained dogs as well. Working with dogs and just being around them makes me happy and feel safe. Dogs bring so much joy to a person I couldn't imagine not being around them. As an owner I do know how important it is to have a piece of mind when you are asking someone to work or walk your dog. That is the most important thing ever to know your dog is in good hands.

Dog Walking in Sacramento

Dog Walking Fun Fact #1:

Social and shy dogs alike need playtime with their peers. While boisterous pooches can safely let out their energy romping with furiends, fearful dogs can build confidence by meeting new people and pups, which can help them cope with whatever life throws at them. Help your dog find the most pawrific playmates with a stroll around the neighborhood or to one of Sacramento’s dog parks.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #2:

Your dog would do anything for you. Pay that devotion back with daily walks to keep your dog healthy and happy. Regular activity can increase your dog’s active years by lowering their risk of serious health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and arthritis. Whether a spin around the block, or a trek through the city along the Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail, you’ll be living your best life together.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #3:

If you come home to some unwanted surprises, your dog could be bored. Dogs who don’t get enough physical and mental stimulation may think that tearing up your pillows and shoes seems like fun. Regular walks are a furrific way to get bored pups excited and able to relax when home. If your dog needs a change of pace from their normal territory, head to Old Town Sacramento to stroll through some Gold Rush history.

Average Cost of Dog Walking in Sacramento

When your pup is anxious to explore Sactown, but life keeps you from the adventure, you may wonder how much dog walking can cost? Short 15-minute spins can average around $20 in Sacramento, while longer 30-minute walks can be as much as $30. Got more than one dog to get moving? Some services can charge another $10 per extra dog to get your pack out together.

With Wag!, your dog can get all the exercise they need with rates you can afford. Dog walkers with Wag! are available when your pup needs them, every day of the week. Whether your dog prefers a short 20-minute stroll for $15, a 30-minute meander for $20, or a 60-minute walk for only $30, these thoroughly vetted and insured pet caregivers are ready to cater to your dog’s needs. And if there’s no end to your furball’s energy, you can save another 15% when you book multiple walks in advance.

You’ll never miss a step with real time GPS tracking through the Wag! app. Your walker will also leave a report card at the end of each walk so you’ll just how much fun your boisterous doggo or shy pupper had while you were away. 

Dog Parks in Sacramento

The Big Tomato has a lot to offer people and pups. Taking a stroll through lovely North Natomas is a great way to start your adventure in north Sacramento, so long as you make a stop at the North Natomas Regional Dog Park. This 2.5-acre stretch of land is split between big and small dog areas, and offers water fountains for pups and benches for you. The fun doesn’t have to end there! Nearby, the Regency Community Dog Park ups the ante by adding agility equipment to its amenities to really get your dog moving.

Your pup will love a visit to Sutter’s Landing Dog Park, a pup oasis in the residential New Era Park neighborhood. Just northeast of the Blue Diamond industrial complex, your pup can cavort with furiends in the big or small dog section. Afterwards, take a walk on one of the trails along the shady shoreline of the American River.

In Midtown, you can spot Victorian and Mid-Century Modern architecture as you meander along tree-lined sidewalks in this artsy home of diverse restaurants, breweries and vintage shops. No trip would be complete without a stop at the Truitt Bark Park for some off-leash fun. Right in the heart of the city, dogs can frolic freely in their two dog runs for differently sized pups, before taking a rest under a shady tree.

South of Downtown in South Land Park, the Partner Dog Park offers another puptastic place for pups to let loose. This 2-acre fenced in space behind the local community center is a furbulous spot for all dogs to mix and mingle. With plenty of shade, and a mix of dirt and grass, your doggo is sure to get enough zoomies in here.

These pawrific parks are just waiting for your pup to visit, but first be sure your furry bestie is current on their vaccines, and wearing their license tag. Keep the leash on when entering or exiting off leash areas, and everywhere outside of them. Always have clean-up bags on hand to pick up whatever your pup lays downs. Note that in city run dog parks, there is a limit of two dogs per person.

Dog Walking in Sacramento with Wag!

With sunshine and adventure right outside the door, living in The City of Trees can be tempting for pups who love to sniff and explore. But when life keeps you from the adventure, Wag! is there to keep your dog moving in this vibrant city.

Booking a walk is as easy as looking at your phone. Just download the Wag! app, choose the date and time for the walk, then pick the pawfect length for your pup. In moments, you can schedule a one-time walk for when your dog needs it most, an on-demand walk for the same day when life gets demanding, or recurring walks to tire out your active pooch. And with GPS tracking, and text and picture updates from your walker, you can keep an eye on all the action.

Sacramento favorites like Pit Bulls and Labrador Retrievers need a lot of activity, and would love plenty of 60-minute walks to tucker them out. Your social Airedale Terrier can greet lots of resident canines on brisk 30-minute strolls around the neighborhood. Got a bossy Chihuahua? Dog walkers with Wag! know they would love to keep an eye on their territory with a 20-minute spin down the block. Wag! can even Drop-In to check on your recovering or older Poodle who prefers to chill at home.

Don’t wait to give your dog an adventure, book a walk with Wag! today!
