Hi, I'm Erin! I grew up in Lincoln, Nebraska with a cocker spaniel named Rudy, but I'm currently a college student in the Boston area. Growing up, I have walked dogs of all shapes and sizes and I love to get the chance to know the animals in the process. While I love all types of animals, dogs are certainly my favorite and I would love to get to know yours soon!

“I’m excited to take care of your best friend!”

Hello! I previously watched nearly every dog in West Georgia. I’ve just moved to Lincoln, Nebraska, and no longer have a pet. I miss my family’s dog, and would love to have more pets in my life, as a walker on Wag! I’m at home 24 hours of the day and am very available to care for an animal. I have a virtual job and am able to walk a pet or take them outside, in general, as often as they need. As I said, I never leave the house, as my job and school are both virtual. I can walk at any time!

Hi! My name is Evelyn. I am a recent college graduate living in Lincoln. I currently have a 9 year old Pomeranian mix. I joined Wag last summer when I was interning in DC and I would like to start again here. I can go for walks, house/dog sit, or check in a few times a day if needed. Let me know if you have any specials requests and I can work to accomodate to you and your pet(s) needs

Lincoln hosts more than 73,903 pet-owning households, there are 137,884 dogs, cats, horses, birds, and more living in Lincoln, which means pets make up a little over 51% of the population.

With over 6,000 acres of parks and natural land, nine recreation centers, 133 miles of trails, ten public pools, and five city golf courses there is plenty to do in the expansive outdoors of Lincoln. The goal of Lincoln is to have a park within the ½ mile of each home in the community. There are quite a few parks in Lincoln where you can bring your dogs, but there are two that are strictly for dogs.

The Rickman’s Run Holmes Lake Dog Park on the east side of 70th in southeast Lincoln has 26 acres of fenced area just for dogs, a special section just for small dogs, and a walking trail along Antelope Creek. Also, there is Oak Creek Dog Park at The North 1st and Cornhusker Highway that has 20 acres of a fenced play area and a special section for small dogs as well. Both parks are completely off-leash play parks which is great for you and your fur babies, especially to keep your furry friend socialized.

Oak Lake Dog Park, located in Woodlawn Estates in Lincoln, is a city dog’s dream. The park is fully fenced. The spacious off leash park offers lots of opportunities for running, fetch, and playing with other dogs. There are some shade structures, but it’s BYOWB (Bring Your Own Water Bowl) all the way. After working off some energy, you and your dog can build endurance by leashing up and heading into Oak Lake Park proper. Leashed dogs can enjoy the walking trails around Oak Lake and through the park.

Rickman’s Run at Holmes Lake provides everything pups need to stay entertained. The terrain is varied, including both hills and a creek! The park is large and entirely off-leash. Dogs can splash, sniff, and explore to their hearts’ content. Holmes Lake Recreation Area provides more challenging hiking trails for leashed dogs in need of a workout--and their owners! When you’re done, head to Carmela’s Bistro & Wine Bar for a fresh salad lunch or glass of wine at one of their seven dog-friendly patio tables.

Nature is great, but some dogs crave the finer things in life. If your pup is more suited to a silk cushion or refined garden than a park, head to south 40th Street and Nebraska Highway and a trio of refined choices for your pup. First, visit Earl May Nursery and Garden Center. Leashed dogs are allowed among the plants and flowers, so enjoy the center and think about landscaping the backyard at the same time. Next, head to The Parthenon for outdoor dining complete with water and treats for canine guests. If your pup prefers the common touch, Lazlo’s Brewery and Grille has a large patio and regional brews.

Bethany in Lincoln is home to beautiful Bethany Park. This park is a large, multi-use space right in the middle of a bustling neighborhood. Leashed dogs will find plenty of stimulation in the sights, smells, and varied terrain of the park. A few loops should help cut boredom and work off some energy! For longer walks, head to MoPac Trail. Part of the Rails-to-Trails conservatory line, this multi-use trail once housed trains. Now it houses joggers, dogs, hikers, and even equestrians! Walk as far as you like, just remember that the path doesn’t form a loop!

Indian Village is a densely populated part of Lincoln. The neighborhood dogs flock to two locations: Rock Island Trail, and Bishop Heights Park. Bishop Heights requires leashes on dogs, but with wide lawns and a break from the bustle of the neighborhood, it’s still a great place to take a dog for a walk. For a longer walk, Rock Island Trail is the place to go. This converted rail line provides lots of interesting hikes for dogs and humans. Stay aware--this multi-use area is popular with many outdoor enthusiasts!
