“It’s not where you walk, it’s who you walk with!”

I’m a proud mom of 3 teenagers, and 3 dogs. My family and I recently moved to Cincinnati from Indianapolis, where I began working for Wag. Wag has been such a fun experience for me. I have loved and bonded with every dog that I have walked. Before working for Wag, I worked as a kennel attendant and front desk receptionist at an animal hospital, where I walked, fed and distributed medications to all the boarding animals. My heart is with all dogs.

Hi, My name is Erin! I am a runner, hiker, yogi and outdoor lover. I am in the process of getting certified as a yoga instructor. Last April I attempted to THRU hike the Appalachian trail from Georgia to Maine. I made it over halfway before I got injured in Pennsylvania. I was working for Wag before my hike and enjoyed it so much and walked a ton of dogs and it really helped prepare me. It is so uplifting and rewarding spending time outside with your pups!

I am a 32-year resident of the West Chester area. I have volunteered as a dog-walker at the Humane Assoc. of Warren Co. for more than 10 years, and have been trained to provide 'working walks' that release energy and stimulate their brains as well. I often walk and pet-sit for friends' and neighbors' dogs when needed. I am recently retired and find that Wag! is the perfect way to spend my extra free time doing an activity that I enjoy.

Dog Walking in Cincinnati

Dog Walking Fun Fact #1:

It’s no surprise that dogs love to play, but you may not know that it’s good for them too! Playing with other canines helps your dog learn proper pup behavior, and with every new dog they meet, your pup is building confidence to help them deal with anxiety and new situations. Walks around the neighborhood, or to a Cincinnati dog park, are a great way to meet new playmates!

Dog Walking Fun Fact #2:

If your dog is twiddling their paws at home alone, they could become prey to boredom! Without enough physical and mental stimulation, even good dogs can exhibit bad behavior by chewing or digging their way to fun. Excite your pup’s senses with a walk along a color-coded route in Downtown Cincinnati, a stroll along the riverfront, or an afternoon at the dog-friendly Finlay Market.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #3:

Daily walks aren’t just fun, they can help you and your pup play together longer. With regular exercise, you both can lower your risk of developing arthritis, diabetes and heart disease, conditions which can shorten your active years. Whether exploring the city on a Cincinnati trail, or just strolling around the block, you and your pup will have a blast living your best lives together.

Average Cost of Dog Walking in Cincinnati

If you are looking to get your dog walked while you are away, you may be wondering just how much it costs in Cincy. Pupular 30-minute walks can be as much as $30, while longer 60-minute strolls can cost you $45. Several services only book walks during the week, and some only during midday hours. If your dog needs an evening walk, you could be charged additional fees upwards of $10 per walk.

Walking with Wag! means walks when your dog needs them most, whether that’s Monday afternoon, or Saturday evening. Dog walkers with Wag! are available every day of the week, all day long to make your dog a happy hound. Your dog can explore on a 20-minute meander for $15, a 30-minute walk for $20, or even a 60-minute stroll for just $30. Best of all, there aren’t any additional fees for early morning, late night or weekend walks.

All Wag! pet caregivers are thoroughly vetted and insured, and waiting to pamper your pup. Follow along on the adventure from wherever you are with real-time GPS tracking through the Wag! app. And if you have a finicky pooch, a report card at the end of each walk will let you know just how much fun your dog actually had. 

Dog Parks in Cincinnati

With exciting neighborhoods, and parks galore, there’s plenty to see in this big city with your pup! In Cincinnati’s largest neighborhood, Westwood residents can explore Mt. Airy Forest Park’s sprawling 1,500-acres. With lots for outdoor enthusiasts, your dog will love the Doris Day Dog Park best, a fenced in open area complete with a small dog section, agility equipment, water fountains, and even pools in the summer. Continue the adventure on leash along several hiking trails. Experienced hikers can tackle the Mt. Airy Forest Explorers Trail to see creeks, ravines and ridges.

City pups can grab a bite to eat at a dog-friendly restaurant in the busy Central Business District, then work off those calories with a stroll to the Fido Field Dog Park. Located in the center of it all underneath an overpass, the gravel and turf terrain limits muddy feet in rainy weather. A small dog section lets little pooches play safely, while benches are pawfect for watching your furry bestie have a blast.

Pups who love luxury will surely appreciate the pawtastic Red Dog Park in Madisonville’s business area. Located within the Red Dog Pet Resort and Spa, this fenced in 3-acres offers a separate small dog area, water fountains, agility equipment, and lots of room to roam over open hilly terrain and shaded woods. Memberships are required to access this furbulous pooch hot spot.

Just south in East End, your pup won’t want to miss the hiking trails, picnic areas and large fields surrounding the Otto Armleder Dog Park. Inside, there’s separate sections spread over 10-acres featuring open areas dotted with trees, benches, and water fountains. Your dog can even get a dip in the Little Miami Scenic River, just follow the trails outside the dog park south to the canoe access.

Before traveling to any off-leash area, be sure your dog is fully vaccinated and licensed. Always keep your dog leashed when entering and exiting off leash areas, and whenever outside of them. Have clean-up bags on hand to pick up after your pup, and note any rules posted by individual parks.

Otto Armleder Dog Park in Mount Lookout is an amazing place to bring your dog. This 10 acre park is divided into three sections. The smallest is in the middle, and is for small breed dogs and puppies. It’s a great way to get your puppy used to socializing without having to play with dogs who look like giants! The other two areas are for large breed dogs. These fields are regularly rotated in an effort to save the grass. This has limited success in a popular park, so be prepared to get muddy if you go in the rain!

If you’re looking for a quick way to get in your dog’s exercise quota for the day, leash up and head to Westwood Commons. This small park is perfect for walking laps. Keep up a brisk pace, and your dog will be ready to snooze the evening away in thirty minutes. If you’re looking for something more involved, pick Mt. Airy Forest Dog Park. This fenced in open area is right next to the miles of walking trails through Mt. Airy Forest. The park has water fountains and some tables for owners to relax and take it easy. Here, dogs can run all day off leash.

Smale Riverfront Park may be small, but it packs a lot into a short distance. This green break from the business district has a labyrinth, trails, playground equipment, drinking fountains, and amazing views of the river. Leashed dogs are more than welcome to enjoy the amenities with their human. Sawyer Point Park is just up the river, and is less busy and more open. Leashed dogs can enjoy the wide open spaces. Less playground equipment means more room to stretch out in the sun and enjoy life. This park is also typically quieter, making it a better destination for shy dogs.

Washington Park Dog Park is a must see for dogs in Cincinnati. Inside the well loved Washington Park, this dog park features over 12,000 feet of fenced in play area. The fun doesn’t stop there. The park offers boulders for climbing and a creek for wading in! A variety of terrains, from gravel to cement to dirt, offer something for everyone to enjoy. Dogs love to race all over the large enclosed area, or chill out with their humans by the picnic tables. Due to the central location, this park is hopping from dawn to dusk! Come by any time with well-socialized dogs ready to play!

Withrow Nature Preserve in Riverview Heights is a great way to get away from it all. Leash up your dog and sniff out some of the area’s prettiest seasonal flower displays. Enjoy choosing from several different trails for an easy but beautiful walk by the river. Kellogg Dog Field is another option, which allows for off leash play at a fully fenced dog park! The runs are divided based on dog’s size, and both sides have drinking fountains for dogs and humans. In a city, anywhere your dog can roam without a leash is a goldmine for fun. Your dog can romp off leash here and have a blast!
