I am an avid dog lover and love walking outdoors for exercise, so why not combine the two. I have been volunteering at Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter(BARCS) since January of this year. I have transported more than 150 animals between BARCS and various veterinary clinics. I have also walked hundreds of dogs and participated in many dog play group sessions in which I have received valuable training from a professional dog trainer. I have experience with all types and sizes of dogs ranging from Chihuahua's to Great Dane. I make the safety of the Dog my top priority during any interaction with them.

I've been very fortunate to grow up with dogs. My first dog was a golden retriever named Murphy. I learned a lot about how to take care of dogs when I was a kid because of Murphy. And more importantly, I had a lot of fun! I now have a black lab named Hon. She recently turned 11, but still acts like a puppy .

Dog Walking in Baltimore

Dog Walking Fun Fact #1:

Since their beginnings as wolves, dogs have always been social creatures. Playing together can teach dogs valuable interaction skills and build their confidence, which can bring out the best in shy dogs and help anxious pups conquer their fears. Take a walk around the block, or to one of Baltimore’s dog parks to meet new furry playmates.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #2:

An active dog can play longer! That’s right, the more exercise your dog gets, the less he is at risk for heart disease, diabetes and arthritis, conditions which can shorten your dog’s active years. Whether a trip around the block, or a romp on the beaches at Hart-Miller Island State Park, you can keep you and your pup in top shape with regular walks together.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #3:

Coming home to shredded rugs is a sure sign the boredom blues have struck! If your dog isn’t a appear, boredom may drive them to dig or chew their way to excitement while you are away. Taking your dog for walks provides valuable mental stimulation and exercise, and could save your favorite pair of shoes. After getting to know your neighborhood, spice up the adventure with a stroll along the waterfront of the Inner Harbor.

Average Cost of Dog Walking in Baltimore

How much does it cost to get your dog moving in Charm City? Several services offer short 15-minute walks for $15, while pupular 30-minute excursions can be up to $25. If your pup needs a walk outside of business hours or on weekends, you could be looking at additional fees up to $10 per walk. And if you get stuck at work, you could be charged a late booking fee of another $5 to $10 to get your dog out and about.

Wag! was created with both you and your dog in mind. Dog walkers with Wag! are available for walks all day long, every day of the week, at the same rates.

While your pup is exploring their neighborhood, you can follow along every step of the way with real time GPS tracking through the Wag! app. Your thoroughly vetted and insured walker will also leave a report card at the end of each walk telling you all about your dog’s day out.

Dog Parks in Baltimore

With so many pawrific places to explore in Mobtown, your dog won’t have time to riot! Take a walk Downtown to the historic center of Mount Vernon where museums and the original Washington Monument share space with an eclectic array of dining options. Your pup will be tugging the leash to get to the Howard Street Dog Park, a pup oasis in the middle of it all. This fenced in park offers separate sections for big and small pooches, and lots of furry furiends to romp with.

Historians will love the harbor area of Locust Point for Fort McHenry where the “Star Spangled Banner” was written. Taking a pup-friendly stroll through the fort is fun, but your dog will love to take off the leash at the Locust Point Dog Park.

This fenced in space offers special hours twice a day for the small and senior doggos to enjoy without their larger peers.

Before heading out to any of Baltimore’s dog parks, be sure your dog is fully vaccinated and licensed. You’ll also need to pick up a tag from the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter to gain access to the dog parks. Keep your dog leashed outside of any off-leash areas, and always have clean-up bags on hand to pick up after your pup.
