“I can’t wait to meet your dog!”

When I got my first dog I realized this is what I'm made for! I am enamored with dogs' loyal, loving, and playful dispositions. Walks are not only my pup's favorite part of the day, but mine as well! Can I help your dog get some play (sniff, exercise) time outside on the days when you can't?

“Lover of all animals, especially ones that bark!”

Hello! My name is Sarah and I can't wait to spend time with your dog! I always cared for dogs while I was growing up. I also used to help on a friends farm and would care for her 4 dogs, multiple cats, horses and a goat. I do have 3 pets of my own- a 2 year old Border Collie/Great Pyrenees mix, a 7 month old Husky and a 5 year old Tabby. I've always been around a variety of dog breeds of all shapes and sizes and I can't wait to meet yours!

Dog Walking in Colorado Springs

Dog Walking Fun Fact #1:

Does boredom have your dog howling the blues? Make sure your pooch doesn’t seek out fun in destructive ways with regular exercise. Daily walks can help them expend their energy while stimulating their mind, allowing them to relax when at home. After some walks around the block, spice it up with a stroll to some dog-friendly shopping in Old Colorado City.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #2:

Our dogs may seem far removed from their wolf ancestors, but the need to socialize is instinctual. In the wild, wolves play with other pack members to build confidence and learn how to behave. Walks through your neighborhood, or to a Colorado Springs dog park, can give your dog lots of chances to work on their social skills with new playmates.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #3:

Keeping active on daily walks isn’t just fun, it’s good for your dog too! Regular activity can reduce your canine pal’s risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease, conditions which can shorten their active years. Stay healthy together on treks through your area, or get some history at the same time exploring Anasazi architecture at the Manitou Cliff Dwellings Museum atop a mesa.

Average Cost of Dog Walking in Colorado Springs

Looking for a dog walker to get your dog moving in Little London while you are away? dog walking businesses and professional dog walkers can get your pup strolling the neighborhood on a 15-minute walk for about $15, while longer 30-minute spins can be as much as $25. Beware of services that only work on weekdays or middays if your dog needs a night or weekend outing. And if your dog needs a last-minute walk, booking within 24 hours could add on an additional $5 to $10 fee.

With dog walkers on the Wag! platform, walking your dog is easy! These pawtastic Pet Caregivers are available every day of the week, all day long, which means your pup can get their exercise at the right time for them. Dog walking rates with Wag! average around $15 for a 20-minute stroll, or $20 for a 30-minute meander. And if your furball is wiggling with energy, you can book a 60-minute adventure for around $30. Need to book a walk for the same day? Just choose on-demand for no additional fees.

Thoroughly vetted and insured Pet Caregivers with Wag! know your pup’s safety is priority number one, so they make sure you can follow along every step of the way with real time GPS tracking through the Wag! app. You’ll also get a report card after each walk so you’ll know just how much fun your dog had on their day out.

Dog Parks in Colorado Springs

With a wealth of scenic views and lots of outdoor adventures, it’s easy to see why Colorado Springs is called The City of Millionaires! The northern Briargate neighborhood gives pups a furbulous place to ditch the leash at the Rampart Dog Park. Dogs of all sizes can mix and mingle in this fenced in open space dotted with shade trees.

East Colorado Springs features a blend of lively breweries, music and entertainment alongside pawsome hiking and biking areas. The large Palmer Park features lots of on leash hiking trails that snake through the park’s 700-acres, and even some off leash in the Yucca Area. Afterwards, head to the Palmer Dog Park’s fenced-in space for a free romp over flat terrain.

Residential West Colorado Springs calls true adventurers to explore on leash hiking featuring furrific views of the red rock sandstone formations at the Garden of the Gods. Your pup will love this National Landmark where they can grab a drink at The Café at the Garden terrace before heading to the Off-Leash Dog Area. Located to the east of the Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site, this unfenced, open field is marked by posts, and surfaced with a mix of dirt and grass. Nearby, the Red Rock Canyon Open Space also features on leash trails to explore, but is most known among the canine pupulation for its off leash Upper and Lower Dog Loop Trails!

For a large, fenced in experience, the Bear Creek Dog Park in Southwest Colorado Springs is sure to tire out even the most energetic pooches! Right at the foot of the Cheyenne Mountains, this 25-acre pupperdise features a small dog section, drinking water, trails, and an agility course. There’s even access to a creek where your pup can wade in and cool down.

When heading out to any off-leash areas, make sure your dog has been fully vaccinated, licensed, and spayed or neutered. Keep clean-up bags on hand to pick up after your dog. Always have your dog leashed when entering or exiting off leash areas, and everywhere outside of them. In unfenced, off leash areas, be sure your dog responds well to voice commands.

The east side of Colorado Springs may not be quite as happening as other sections, but it does have Palmer Park! This amazing area is filled with awesome rock formations just waiting to be explored by you and your furry friend. The trails are all on-leash only, but they are long enough that your pup will be exhausted after a day of running, hiking and climbing the ruff terrain. There is a small fenced-in dog park, however most locals prefer tearing around the trails over hanging at the park. Either way, Palmer Park has so much to offer travellers with four legs. Just keep in mind the range doesn't have a lot of shade, so it may be best to bring some water and a dish to keep your bark buddy hydrated and happy.
