“I adore dogs!”

Hi there! My name is Melissa. Currently, our family has a yellow lab and a black lab. I am ALWAYS covered in dog hair! My youngest son has remarked that dogs are my kryptonite because I find it very difficult to just walk past a dog. I typically have to stop and say hello. It would be my pleasure to walk your furry friend.

Average Cost of Dog Walking Services in Omaha, NE 

Are you thinking of calling in local reinforcements to meet your dog's walking needs?

Luckily, Omaha has several different dog walking services that will help keep your pup in peak shape. Rates for most of these services are similar. However, the details in the fine print can really add to your monthly dog walking bill.

The average going rate for a 30-minute dog walk in Omaha is $22. Booking on a holiday or weekend will increase your total cost. What’s more, most dog walking services require you to book at least 3 walks a week for at least 6 consecutive weeks. 

Looking for a more affordable Omaha dog walking option? Try Wag!. Pet Parents can choose between 3 different walk lengths depending on their pet's activity level and preferences. Dog walkers on the Wag! app choose their own rates, so you'll receive a price quote when booking and then a final total after selecting your Pet Caregiver. 

The average price for a 30-minute walk is just $20 and will give your dog the opportunity to relieve themselves and check out the local scenery too. Dogs who "paw-fer" to stop and sniff the roses will be happy to know that a 60-minute walk costs $30 on average when you book through Wag!. The 20-minute walk is always a hit with older or less active dogs and costs $15 on average. Got multiple pooches? No problem. Additional pets are just $5 more per walk!

Dog Parks in Omaha, NE 

When it comes to places for pups to get their move on, the pups of Omaha are truly spoiled for choice. Chalco Hills Recreation Area is a top pick for local fur-babies and is only a 12-mile drive from downtown. This expansive park is home to Wehrspann Lake and many trails, but the real highlight of Chalco Hills — at least in most dogs' eyes — is the off-leash area. The off-leash area offers dogs the chance to fetch, sniff, and explore without tugging at the leash. However, this area isn't fully fenced, and we recommend steering clear of the off-leash area if your pup is unreliable when called.

Dewey Dog Park in Midtown is the newest park on the scene, and its amenities have all the furry locals woofing! Separate enclosures for small and large dogs ensure playtime is as safe as "pawssible" for their furry patrons. The park's puppy splash pad is great way to beat the heat during the summer months. Pets up for a challenge may want to try their paw at the agility course, which features a ramp, teeter-totter, and tunnel. The best part? The self-cleaning artificial turf means no messy paws!

Northwest Omaha is home to the city's oldest dog park, Hefflinger Dog Park. This spacious 7.5-acre park offers the furry locals plenty of room to roam and socialize. Pups under 30 pounds have a 2.5-acre section of the park all to themselves, but they're welcome to join in on the fun in the "all dog" zone too. 

Wherever your pack decides to spend the day, be sure you abide by Omaha's city-wide dog park rules. Check that your pup is up to date on all their vaccinations, and please keep food, dog toys, and in-heat dogs at home. While you're there, do your part to keep the park clean and tidy by filling in holes and picking up after your pet.

Whether your pup likes a quick 20-minute spin around the block or a slow-paced, hour-long stroll, walkers with Wag! have you covered! 

Omaha dog walkers on the Wag! app are carefully vetted to ensure the safest care possible for our furry clients. You can enjoy your workday or your lunch date knowing that your furbaby is in the caring hands of a dependable dog lover like yourself.

After you've read up on the Pet Caregivers in your area, select your favorite and get a finalized price quote for your walk. 

When the day arrives for Fido's walk, you can track your pup's coming and goings with the app's GPS tracking feature. What's more, every walk includes "pupdates" and a detailed report card about your furbaby's behaviors and bathroom habits. 

If you're unable to take your pup for their daily stroll, let us help! Book a walk with Wag! today!
