I love dogs more than people. They are selfless, innocent fur babies whose only objective is to please. We, as humans, should reciprocate that love by giving them what little they need and everything they deserve! I think i can give the dog whisperer a run for his money bc even the meanest of dogs have shown me their sweetest sides. I never blame a dog for being aggression; more so, their upbringing. Like human children, dogs become a product of their culture, what they're exposed to. I'm here to show i love them, i understand them, and i'm on their side.

“Animal Lover Extraordinaire”

I've personally owned & cared for many different types of dogs for more than 25 + yrs. I am first aid & dog CPR trained. From 2014-2017, I fostered & trained my foster dogs, mainly Pitties, prior to them finding their furever home. While living in Ohio from 2016-2017, I boarded different types of dogs, so their families could go on vacation. I've recently fostered and trained several dogs during the COVID19 stay at home order.

“Happy dog = happy human”

I’m brand new to Denver as of May and am excited to meet all the dogs! I have a 5 year old mixed breed dog named Rudy and he’s my best friend. I have had dogs my whole life and am great with all types of dogs regardless of size or breed. I fall in love with a lot of dogs I walk and I make sure they get some extra love. I carry water when it’s warm and a towel when it rains to wipe them off. The best way to book me again is using the “Book Again” button under the past services tab.

Howdy! My name is Mike. I've been walking and training dogs since the age of six. I raised cattle herding dogs from puppies into full grown mature working dogs while working on a farm in my early 20's in Illinois. I am looking for supplemental income now that I am trying to make it in this beautiful state. I love all types of dogs -- big and small-- and am excited to meet yours!

Hi, my name is Jackson! I recently pursued a lifelong dream moving from Cleveland to Denver! I'm loving it here but I missed my black lab Ellie and labradoodle Champ like crazy.. Wag! has been the solution! I'm a great fit for your dog's walk because I am energetic, passionate and truly care about your pup! I will go above and beyond to make sure your pet is out of energy and full of love by the time we're done with our walk! Even if you choose another walker, I hope you and your dog have a great experience with Wag! :)

“Let’s raise the woof! It’s the leashed I can do”

I worked at a doggie daycare and a canine rehabilitation center, so I have extensive experience working with dogs from all walks of life. I have befriended anxious dogs who usually fear humans and earned the acceptance of aggressive dogs. Animals tend to like me regardless of their personalities. I am as happy on a leisurely walk for a mellow dog who wants to sniff and explore as I am to tire out a dog with boundless energy.

Dog Walking in Boulder

Boulder is one of the most dog-friendly places in Colorado with more than 23,000 dogs. There are many places to enjoy in Boulder for you and the pooch. If you like to hike, McClintock Trail to Chautauqua Ranger Cottage is good for beginners. It is two and a half miles of pretty easy terrain that reaches an elevation of 5,697 feet. This is in Chautauqua Park off 9th Street.

If you want a more challenging hike, try the Mount Sanitas Loop 3.1 mile Trail off Mapleton by the Mapleton Medical Center. It is 6m863 feet at the summit, and you should pack plenty of water. This is a very steep hike with a lot of rock and gravel, but definitely worth it for the views at the top.

Boulder also has some great dog parks. Chautauqua Park on 9th Street has a picnic area, playground, and plenty of hiking trails on 80-acres. Coot Lake on 63rd Street is a huge lake with a nature reserve area where you can see plenty of waterfowl and other wildlife. You can fish in certain areas, and Fido can swim on the east and south shores of the lake. There are also trails, restrooms, and water available. When you get tired, you can stay in one of the dog-friendly hotels such as the Millennium Harvest House or Best Western on 28th and Holiday Inn on Broadway. Enjoy your stay in Boulder.

Foothills Community Dog Park is located in the Foothills Community Park and is open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. The park boasts 65 acres of well-maintained equipment, trails, and grassy areas with an enclosed dog park of two-acres. The sandy lot has a small 0.5-acres allocated for your smaller pooch pals. If the enclosed areas are not for you, there is the North Foothills Trails with clear signs showing dog regulations.

Located east of downtown Boulder, Howard Heuston Dog Park is open for your four-legged friend’s enjoyment from 5 a.m. until 11 p.m. If you want to let your pooch run free, there is a 1.25-acre off-leash area marked by yellow poles but make sure to keep your eyes on your precious pup as there is no fence surrounding this area. If you are wandering the rest of the park area, make sure to keep Fido on that leash. The park remains quiet throughout the day, picking up on the weekends and after 5 p.m. when the office workers are out and about. So, if you’re looking for a friend for Fido, this is the time to venture out.

Another great dog park located on Valmont Road is the Valmont Dog Park. Inside the Valmont Park, a pup-tacular enclosed area gives your pooch the chance to run off some energy after being cooped up all day! If you are taking Fido for some vigorous exercise, be sure to take some H2O as the water in the park is only available in the warmer months. If you want to join in with your fur-baby’s exercise, then perhaps a stroll around the park’s bicycle trails with Fido on a leash is what you’re after. And remember, keep that petiquette in check. Leave the park cleaner than you found it and make sure to remove anything left behind by your pooch. After all, no one wants to see that!
