Daily walks aren’t just fun, they can keep you and your pup playing together longer. Spending time with your dog can lower your blood pressure and cholesterol levels, while regular exercise can keep your dog from becoming overweight, and developing conditions like diabetes and arthritis. Whether a walk around historic Ybor City, or just around the block, you and your dog can live your best life together.
If your house ever looked like the Tasmanian Devil visited while you were gone, your dog may have the boredom blues. Without enough mental and physical exercise, bored dogs could find themselves chewing or digging their way to fun. Save your home, and your sanity, with regular walks around the neighborhood to get out the wiggles and stimulate your dog’s senses. Spice it up with a trek along Bayshore Boulevard for furbulous views of Hillsborough Bay
Rubbing noses with other dogs isn’t just fun, its good for your dog too! When dogs play together, they learn important dog behavior and good manners, which goes a long way past playtime. Fearful dogs can also build confidence with each new pup they greet. Take a walk around the neighborhood, or to one of Tampa’s dog parks to meet lots of new furiends.
When life keeps you from getting your dog moving, you may wonder what pet walking rates are in Tampa. On average, a 20-minute walk around the Cigar City can cost $20, while longer 60-minute ones can be as much as $40. Most dog walking services book the majority of their walks on weekdays during business hours. If your dog needs a walk outside of those hours, or on weekends, there’s usually an additional $5 fee. And if you need a last-minute walk within 24 hours, you could be charged another $5 to $10.
With dog walkers on the Wag! app, walks are available when your pup needs them. Whether your dog needs a 20-minute stroll for an average of $15, a 30-minute walk for about $20, or a 60-minute excursion for around $30, your furry pal can get moving every day of the week. Stuck at work later than you expected? Just book an on-demand walk for the same day without any extra fees.
Pet Caregivers with Wag! are thoroughly vetted and insured, and make it their mission to pamper your pooch. You can watch every step your dog makes with real time GPS tracking through the Wag! app. After the walk, you’ll get a report card letting you know all about your dog’s adventure.
With tons of sunshine, the pupperdise of Tampa is begging to be explored! City dogs would love a waterfront stroll along the Tampa Riverwalk in Downtown. Along the way, make a stop at the Curtis Hixon Waterfront Dog Park for its pawrific fenced-in, turf covered play area complete with agility equipment. Enjoy the gorgeous view of the Seddon Channel while your dog has a blast.
Discover Tampa’s historic beginnings in Port Tampa City with a stroll past historic homes and community buildings pre-dating 1900. Then, kick up the sand and splash in the water in the footsteps of the first settlers of Tampa at the Picnic Island Beach Dog Park. Spread across almost 8-acres of sandy beach, the park attracts visitors to its sports areas, picnic tables, and boat and canoe launches. Your pup will probably love the off-leash areas of the waterfront best.
Head to the northwestern outskirts of Tampa for some pupular canine hotspots. The highly residential Pinecrest West Park offers a haven for pups wanting to run free at the West Dog Park. If your dog gets dirty running in the big or small dog area, there are bathtubs on site where they can clean up before heading home.
The adjacent Town N Country Alliance is home to the Northwest County Dog Park. Featuring a separate area for smaller pooches and agility equipment, your dog will love the water and tubs for a cool down.
A bit north in upscale Citrus Park, dogs love romping in the Logan Gate Dog Park. Two enclosures for big and smaller dogs stretch over its 5-acres full of lush grass. With drinking water and a wash station, your pup can keep hydrated and stay cool after working up a frenzy with furry furiends.
Wherever you travel in Tampa, make sure your dog stays on leash anywhere outside of off leash areas, including when entering or exiting dog parks. Your dog should be licensed and wearing an ID tag at all times. Always fill in any holes your dog may dig in a dog park, and have clean-up bags handy to promptly pick up after your pooch.
There’s a lot to explore in The Big Guava! When responsibilities make it hard to get away, your dog doesn’t have to miss out on the adventure. Wag! is ready to get your dog’s paws moving in this land of sun and fun!
Dog walkers with Wag! cater each walk to your dog’s needs. Got a French Bulldog, Tampa’s favorite pooch? A 20-minute stroll around the neighborhood would be pawfect. Active Golden Retrievers and German Shepherds need lots of exercise to get their wiggles out, and would love plenty of 60-minute walks. If your Bulldog needs a break from napping, a 30-minute meander would be great to get those lazy bones moving. And if your older Yorkie is too tired for a walk, Wag! can Drop-In in at home to put the wag back in their tail.
You can get your dog the exercise they need in three easy steps. Just download the Wag! app, set the date and time, then choose the best length of walk for your canine bestie. Mix and match one-time walks, recurring walks and on-demand walks to create a routine that works for both you and your dog. Scroll through dog walker profiles to find the pawfect match, then use Wag! Chat to tell them all about your pooch. You’ll always know where your dog goes with GPS tracking, and can share in all the fun moments through text and video updates from your walker.
