Dog Walking in Providence

Dog Walking Fun Fact #1:

Dogs love to play, but roughhousing with their peers is more than just fun. Like their wild ancestors, dogs learn how to behave through interactions with other canines, and can build confidence with each new experience. Regular walks in your neighborhood, or to a Providence dog park, are puptastic opportunities to meet new playmates.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #2:

Getting enough physical activity can help both you and your dog reduce your risk of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease, conditions which can shorten active years. Daily walks are a fun way to get the exercise you both need while spending time together. Change it up with a trek on the Woonasquatucket River Greenway Bike Path along the river and through parks in southern Providence.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #3:

Even good dogs can be bad if they don’t get enough physical and mental exercise. If the boredom blues has your dog chewing up the rugs, it’s time to up the excitement in their life. Take your dog for walks where they can work out their muscles and their minds while exploring their environment. Courageous pups may even enjoy a dog-friendly ghost tour through historic College Hill.

Average Cost of Dog Walking in Providence

When you want to keep your dog moving in Prov when you are away, you may be considering hiring a dog walker. On average, short 15-minute potty breaks cost around $15, while longer 30-minute walks could be as much as $25. Many services operate primarily during business hours on weekdays, so you could be looking at additional fees for late night or weekend walks. And if you need a last-minute walk, there could be yet another added cost.

Your dog can enjoy a pawsome walk when they need it most with Wag!. Dog walkers with Wag! are available to take your dog on a 20-minute stroll for $15, a 30-minute meander for $20, or a 60-minute adventure for only $30 from morning till night, every day of the week. Rates always stay the same, no matter when the walk is scheduled. With on-demand, your dog can enjoy same day walks without extra fees too. And if your pup never gets tired, you can save 15% when you book multiple walks in advance.

Thoroughly vetted and insured dog walkers with Wag! know that your canine pal’s safety comes first. You can always follow along every step your dog takes with real time GPS tracking through the Wag! app. And with a report card at the end of each walk, you’ll also know just how much fun they had!

Dog Parks in Providence

Whether you live in Providence, or are just passing through, there’s plenty to see in this historic capital city. Cruise Downtown for pawsome dog-friendly restaurants to get some fuel in your tanks before starting your trek. Then head west down Atwell Avenue to the Federal Hill neighborhood, marked by a hanging bronze Pine Cone near Bradford Street. Prov’s “Little Italy” is known for its culinary delights, but your pup is sure to want to visit Franciscan Park. Once the site of a convent, this park has been turned into a fully fenced-in pupperdise, with lots of space for dogs of all sizes to mix and mingle. Also called the Bell Street Dog Park, your pup can romp with friends in the open areas, or hit the dirt path to explore old stone walls and lots of different terrain.

For another off-leash adventure, the Wayland neighborhood on the eastern border of Providence along the Seekonk River is home to the expansive Waterman Street Dog Park! As the biggest dog park in Rhode Island, Waterman Street features 2.5-acres of fenced-in wooded and open space for dogs to explore. With a small dog area, wooded paths, water and clean-up bags, this pupular space is truly an oasis for outdoor adventure!

With a shortage of dog parks inside the city of Providence, residents also have some off-leash options in surrounding areas. In adjacent Pawtucket, a more traditional dog park experience awaits at the Pawtucket Dog Park. With big and small dog sections, an agility course, water and some shade, this fenced-in pup hotspot is sure to tire your dog out. If they still have some pep in their step, hike an on-leash trail in the surrounding Slater Memorial Park.

Just south of Providence in Barrington, the Barrington Dog Park offers a fully fenced-in space inside the Haines Memorial State Park for dogs to ditch the leash and run free. This bare-bones park offers one large space for pups of all sizes to play together, with clean-up bags on site.

While each park has its own list of rules, there are some that apply to all. Always keep your dog leashed when entering or exiting any dog park, and be sure to pick up anything your dog leaves behind.

Dog Walking in Providence with Wag!

When you are away, your dog can still play in The Renaissance City with Wag!

Booking a walk with Wag! is easy! Simply download the Wag! app, select a date and time, and then choose the best length of walk for your pup. Whether one-time walks just when your dog needs them, recurring walks to satisfy the active furball in your life, or on-demand for walks in the same day, your dog is sure to love their adventure. And with GPS tracking, and texts and pictures from your walker, you can share in all the excitement.

High energy Providence favorites, like Labrador Retrievers and Pit Bulls, can really get moving on lots of 60-minute treks. If your lazy Bulldog needs some exercise, a 30-minute meander around the neighborhood is the pawfect way to get ready for another nap. Dog walkers with Wag! know how to treat your Shih Tzu like royalty with a 20-minute spin on your block. And if your older Chihuahua just needs some company, Wag! can Drop-In at home to keep that little tail wagging too.

Treat your dog to an adventure by booking a dog walk with Wag! today!
