Dog Walking in Miami

Dog Walking Fun Fact #1:

Spending time with your dog isn’t just fun, it’s good for you! Owning pets can help decrease your blood pressure and reduce anxiety, so pay your furry bestie back by keeping them healthy too! Daily walks can lessen your dog’s risk of obesity, heart disease and arthritis, and keep you two together longer. Take a trip Downtown to wander along the waterfront and squint up at the skyscrapers, or just explore the neighborhood for some pawsome cardio.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #2:

Whether your dog is shy or boisterous, rubbing noses with other pups teaches good dog behavior. Meeting new people and dogs also gives your dog confidence, which in turn helps them conquer their fears and learn to deal with new situations. Take your dog on a walk to one of Miami’s dog parks to socialize with new playmates and expand their horizons.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #3:

Miami’s endless sunshine may beckon your pup, but while you are away, your dog may be sidelined from the adventure. If your best bud doesn’t get the exercise and mental stimulation they need, they could become destructive while you are away. Don’t let boredom destroy your pillows, give your dog some excitement with daily walks. Whether taking a spin around the block, or exploring the beaches in Miami Beach across the bay, you’ll be sure to get your dog tuckered out.

Average Cost of Dog Walking in Miami

With several services and professional dog walkers available to get your dog moving while you are gone, you may wonder how much dog walking rates are in The Magic City. Short 20-minute walks could be as much as $22, but if your big dog needs more exercise, you could pay as much as $38 for 60-minutes out and about. Most dog walking companies work Monday through Friday during business hours, and those that offer after hours or weekend walks often charge an additional $5 or more. And if you need a last-minute walk, you could be shelling out another $15.

Life can be unpredictable, which is why dog walkers on the Wag! app are there when you need them. Your little pupper may love a 20-minute walk for around $15, while your bigger dog may prefer 30-minutes for $20. And if you have an energy furball, Wag! also offers 60-minute walks for an average of $30. Best of all, walks are available every day of the week, from morning until night. And if your dog needs a walk asap, Wag! offers on-demand walks within the same day without any extra fees.

Pet Caregivers with Wag! are thoroughly vetted and insured, and know your dog’s safety is priority #1. With real time GPS tracking through the Wag! app, you’ll always be able to keep an eye on your dog’s journey. Your walker will also leave a report card at the end of each walk to let you know how much your dog loved their day out.

Dog Parks in Miami

With lots of sunshine and ocean views, Miami is the pawfect place to explore with your dog. Start your trek in the Upper East Side for its architectural beauty and multicultural heritage. Sample local flavors at the area’s dog-friendly restaurants, then mosey on down to Legion Memorial Dog Park for a little leash-free fun.

While super hip Edgewater also offers an array of dog-friendly restaurants and bars, your pupper's favorite place is bound to be the Margaret Pace Dog Park. This lush oasis right on Biscayne Bay features doggy water fountains and a fire hydrant for pup playtime. Martell Bark Park is another coastal pupperdise nestled between the Blue Condo tower and I-195. Though on the small side, this furbulous space offers a convenient place for city pups to safely play.  

With a name like Coconut Grove, Miami's oldest neighborhood just south of downtown is a postcard-perfect example of a tropical paradise. Your pup will love playing at the Blanche Dog Park, an off-leash space offering drinking water, waste baggies, and even benches for tired pet parents. Nearby, the Coconut Grove Dog Park in the David T. Kennedy Park is another great spot to meet new playmates amidst scenic bay views. For some on-leash exercise with a side of history, head to Barnacle Historic State Park which features a preserved 19th century home and a dog-friendly woodland trail.

To get away from the hustle and bustle, head southwest to Lago Mar. Here, you and your pup will find the Lago Mar Dog Park right in the middle of a quiet residential area. With one open space, be sure your small pupper is comfortable running with the big dogs here.

You can’t explore Miami without hitting the beach, so feed your dog’s need for sun and sand with a trip to the Hobie Island Beach Park. Located on the Rickenbacker Causeway on the way to Virginia Key, this puptastic beach lets dogs roam off leash and splash in the shallow waters.

Before heading out to explore Miami, be sure your dog is up to date on their vaccinations, and displays a current rabies tag. Keep clean-up bags on hand and always pick up after your pup. Miami’s dog parks do not allow pit bulls, so be sure to research which areas your Pittie can play in before venturing out.
