“Your dog is safe and secure with me!”

Although safety is a priority, I also love to include enrichment and training opportunities whenever appropriate, using only positive reinforcement methods. Respecting and “listening” to a dog creates a healthy relationship and contributes to a positive experience for both of us!

Dog Walking in Jacksonville

Dog Walking Fun Fact #1:

People and dogs who play together can stay together longer. That’s right, regular exercise can lower the risk of heart disease, diabetes and obesity for both you and your dog, which can increase your active years. Daily treks through the neighborhood are a fun way to live your best life together. Take it up a notch with a hike along the Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail Trail through western Jacksonville and beyond.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #2:

Rubbing noses with other canines isn’t just fun, it can help your dog be a better dog too! When dogs meet new furiends and play, they learn proper pooch behavior. Shy dogs can also learn to be friendlier as they build confidence with each new experience. Regular walks around the block, or to a Jacksonville dog park, give your dog lots of chances to romp with other playful pups.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #3:

Lying around the house all day can get boring for anyone, and your dog is no exception. Your furry friend needs exercise and mental stimulation, and if they don’t get enough, they could start looking for it with your rugs and shoes. Keep your stuff safe fromdestruction by taking your pup for daily walks. To really get your dog’s senses working, stroll through the salt marshes, hardwood hammocks and dunes of the Timucuan Ecological and Historical Preserve.

Average Cost of Dog Walking in Jacksonville

To get your dog moving in JAX when you are away, there are many dog walking services available. On average, short 15-minute potty breaks are around $15, while longer 30-minute walks can be as much as $25. If you need a walk in the same day, you could be shelling out an additional $10.

Wag! keeps both you and your dog in mind with affordable rates and open availability so your dog can get the exercise they crave when they need it most. Every day of the week, dog walkers with Wag! are ready to keep your dog active with several walking options. Small pups can get more than a potty break with 20-minute walks for just $15. Bigger dogs may enjoy a 30-minute stroll for $20, or even a 60-minute adventure for only $30. Book an on-demand walk for the same day when your pup just can’t wait at no extra cost. And if you’ve got an energy hound, you can save 15% when you book multiple walks in advance.

All Wag! pet caregivers are thoroughly vetted and insured, and keep you updated on your dog’s day with report cards at the end of each walk. And with real time GPS tracking through the Wag! app, you can follow along every step the way.

Dog Parks in Jacksonville

With Jacksonville’s pawrific weather, there’s no stopping you and your pup from exploring all the Bold New City of the South has to offer. Stroll through Downtown’s historic district in Springfield to see 19th and 20th-century homes on your way to the Confederate Dog Park. Spanning almost 3-acres, this grassy, fenced in space is separated for differently sized pooches, and features drinking fountains and a washing station.

A bit south in the bohemian Five Points area, hip pupsters can munch at dog-friendly restaurants before getting a romp in at the John Gorrie Dog Park at Riverside Park. Surfaced in a mix of crushed granite and grass, your dog will love frolicking with furiends in the big or small dog section.

If your pup is itching to hit the sand, your dog will love the Kathryn Abby Hanna Park and Beach in North Beach. Play on shore or splash in the Atlantic with your pup, just be sure to keep the leash on. Afterwards, you can hike 20-miles of trails, have a picnic, or enjoy a freshwater lake.

A true pupperdise awaits your dog in quiet Baymeadows at the Dog Wood Park of Jacksonville. Sprawling over 42-acres are open fields, a 10-acre forest with shady trails, an agility course for your sporty pup, and even ponds and a lake for the water lovers. With a separate section for smaller doggos, and dog showers, the small fee is more than worth it at this furrific dog park.

Your dog can get the royal treatment in southern Jackson’s Mandarin neighborhood at the Julington Creek Animal Walk. With multiple fenced-in areas, your pup can enjoy the thrills of a waterpark, explore trails and hills, or just sit back in a shady spot after taking a relaxing dip in one of several pools. Fees are higher for this doggy spa, but your dog is sure to come home wagging that tail.

Before heading out with your dog in Jacksonville, be sure they are fully vaccinated and licensed, with all appropriate tags. Have clean-up bags on hand to promptly clean-up after your pup. Always keep your dog leashed outside of any off-leash areas, and when entering and exiting them. Individual parks may have their own set of rules, so be sure to observe any postings at each one.

Dog Walking in Jacksonville with Wag!

The Gateway to Florida has long been known as the way to fun and excitement. But for dogs, it’s no fun waiting for you to get home. Wag! is there to help your dog keep the good times rolling even when you are away with walks tailored just for them.

Got a working German Shepherd or an active Labrador Retriever? Dog walkers with Wag! know just how to tire out these Jacksonville favorites with lots of 60-minute treks. Though smaller, your dashing Dachshund needs their fair share of exercise too, and would love 30-minute sprints around the neighborhood. Your little French Bulldog may be more inclined to take a 20-minute meander to get those little legs worked out. And if you just want a check-in for your elderly Yorkie, Wag! can Drop-In at home to make sure they have everything they need.

It’s easy to get your dog the exercise they crave. Just download the Wag! app, select a date and time for a walk, then choose the pawfect length for your dog. With one-time walks, recurring walks, and on-demand walks for the same day, you can create an experience that your dog will love. No matter where you are, you can keep up with your pup with GPS tracking through the app. Your pawrific pet caregiver will even send text and picture updates so you’ll be able to share in all the fun moments.

Make every day exciting for your dog in Jacksonville by booking a walk with Wag! today!

Jacksonville Beach has some great spots to take your pup to. Not far from the ocean lies Paws Park at Wingate Park. This off leash dog park is home to good times for both tiny puppers and big barkers. A membership is needed to enter Paws Park, but it gives you access to amenities like onsite restrooms and automatic water bowls. The park is accessible for those in wheelchairs and supplies poop bags and waste bins. Dogs can take a dip in the large pond located in the middle of the grounds. If you’re looking to get some time in the sand, Jacksonville Beach allows four-legged guests from 5pm to 9am each day. As long as your dog stays on leash and you are a tidy visitor, you and your pooch will be welcome in the sand and the sea of this beach.

Where the river meets the sea there are some barking good times to be had. The Kathryn Abby Hame Park and Beach offers over 450 acres of outdoor wonderfulness just waiting to be discovered by you and your four-legged companion. The grounds are great for camping and hiking, while the ocean, freshwater lake, and water park offer great ways for both dogs and humans to cool off. Leashes are needed everywhere but the fenced-in dog park, and must be 8 feet in length or less. Day passes come in at $5, so a visit to Kathryn Abby Hame Park and Beach is not going to break the bank. If you'd like to travel across the river, both pups and their people are invited on the St. John's River Ferry, which offers both drive-on or walk-on entry. Canines who board in cars must stay inside their vehicles, while pedestrian pooches can stay in the back of the boat.

Hounds in Baymeadows are pretty spoiled, because they have two awesome dog parks nearby! The Dogwood Dog Park has everything your pup could ever dream of, including ponds, fields, forests and a lake. Test your dog's skills on the full agility course, or clean your pooch up at the dog shower. The area is staffed so it is always maintained and memberships are not outrageously priced. In addition to all of this, they also feature a small dog area, a lighted field open until 10 pm, a rentable section, and a kids playground! If you're looking more for something small and free, the St. John's Town Center Dog Park in front of Dick's Sporting Goods has you covered. The area is fully fenced in and has lots of sand for digging. Keep in mind that this spot is strictly BYO-Bags and you'll need to supply your own water and bowl as well.

There aren't many places that are more dog-friendly than Five Points in Jacksonville.  If you are looking for a day filled with barktastic fun, head on down to this riverside heart of the community. You can pick up all of your doggy goods at the Bark Boutique, a self dubbed “urban dog retreat” with a doggy salon and a shop filled with specialized canine accoutrements. From pup apparel to baked goods for dogs, you can find it all at this glamorous pet store. The Riverside Market and Unity Plaza offer on-leash fun, with amphitheaters, dog-friendly restaurants and even vendors with bowls of water for all of their four legged patrons. There is no better way to spend a nice day than listening to live tunes with your pooch at the Five Points river shore.

Wagging tails are better at the beach. Atlantic Beach has some great spots for fun in the sun with your dog. Dogs are allowed all day and into the evening at the main beach area as long as they are leashed. If you head into the ocean for a swim with your canine compadre, you are allowed to ditch the leash until you're back on dry land. If you're looking for total pup freedom, head over to the Atlantic Beach Dog Park. For $50 a year, your dog can have access to sandy fun and clean swimming in an aerated lake. This park is open 24 hours a day, to fit the schedules of all different woofers. Neptune Beach becomes dog friendly as the sun drops, with on-leash visits allowed between 5pm and 9am. The next time you're looking for a way to spend the day (or night) with your dog, check out Atlantic Beach because there's nothing quite like catching a Florida sunset with man's best friend.
