My experience with dogs started as a child. In seventh grade, my best friend’s mom owned a dog kennel, where I volunteered throughout middle and HS. The kennel eventually switched ownership, so I got a job at a doggy daycare, but when the kennel reopened I was hired. During my time at the new facility I played many roles; trainer, groomer, manager, and everything in between. For five years I also pet sat a highly trained German Shepherd guard dog who belonged to a prominent Israeli family.

“I believe pets are family and treat them as such.”

I have walked dogs and have worked with Wag for a little over 3 years now. I have done boarding and sitting. I can give meds. I have took a pet CPR and first aid class. If you need boarding for your dog/s and if they need to be the only dog/s. Just let me know and my dogs can stay at my parents house. I look forward to caring for your furbabies. Thank you.

A recent move from Fort Lauderdale, I am thrilled to be in the Brentwood area. My specialty as a dog walker is to be a reliable and trust worthy helper. I take pride in showing I have a unique bond with animals and always dreamed to make dog walking a career when I was little. Since joining Wag! I found a wonderful way to turn work into passion!

Enjoying life with my furry animal companions. Loves dogs, long walks in the park, and giving belly rubs. As a veterinary assistant I have had the opportunity to walk hundreds of different dogs, and many different breeds. My volunteer work at the local shelter taught me the value of patience, tender care, and love when working with dogs. Also, I understand the importance that a well behaved pooch is one that is happy. I would love to give your pooch the exercise and care that they deserve. Life is about adventure, and it is way more fun with a dog!

Dog Walking in Nashville

Dog Walking Fun Fact #1:

People and pups who play together, stay together longer. While your dog can help you reduce your cholesterol and blood pressure, you can help your furry bestie from developing arthritis or heart disease, which can increase both of your active years. Daily walks are the pawfect way to get exercise and strengthen the bond between you. Once you’ve exhausted your neighborhood paths, tackle a Nashville trail for some additional cardio.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #2:

The number one destroyer of your shoes isn’t sidewalks, it’s boredom! Dogs who get theboredom blues may dig or chew their way to excitement, but you can save your home from wanton destruction by spicing up your dog’s life with regular walks. Whether exploring the unique storefronts and multi-cultural restaurants of 12 South, or walking the riverfront Downtown, your dog can get those wiggles out and be calmer at home.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #3:

Being social isn’t just good for outgoing pups, it’s great for shy guys and boisterous jumpers too! Every person and dog your pooch meets can help them work on their manners and build confidence. Taking a walk around the block or to a Nashville dog park can give your pup the chance to practice appropriate behavior and conquer their fears while greeting new people and playmates.

Average Cost of Dog Walking in Nashville

When your dog isn’t howling along to their favorite tune, exploring Music City is on the agenda. But when you aren’t available, you may wonder how much dog walking costs in Nashville. If your dog needs some exercise, you could be paying $20 for a 20-minute walk or $30 for a 30-minute walk. Only a few services offer 60-minute walks which are usually around $35. Many dog walking companies work weekdays during business hours, and those that offer after hours or weekend walks often charge another $5 per walk. And if you need a last-minute walk, that could equal yet another charge.

Wag! understands that schedules can be different, and offer walks every day of the week, all day long, at the same rates. Get your pup out for a 20-minute spin for $15, a 30-minute walk for $20, or even a 60-minute adventure for only $30. When you are held up at work and your pup needs out, just schedule an on-demand walk for the same day with no extra fees.

Thoroughly vetted and insured dog walkers with Wag! are not only committed to your dog’s happiness, but also to your peace of mind. With real time GPS tracking through the Wag! app, they keep you updated on your pup’s location at all times. And a report card at the end of each walk will tell you all about your dog’s day out.

 Dog Parks in Nashville

With its rich history and quirky neighborhoods, Nashville is a pawtastic place to hoof it with your dog. If in the Downtown area, check out the Riverfront Park Dog Park. Enjoy waterfront views of the Cumberland River while your pup frolics freely in this space offering all-weather turf and water fountains.  

While Centennial Park in Midtown is pupular for the Parthenon and the Centennial Art Center, your pup will probably be tugging the leash to cross the street for some fun at the Centennial Dog Park. Full of amenities, this park offers separate areas for big and small pooches, and lots of room to run on a variety of surfaces.

Residents and visitors to East Nashville love the colorful neighborhoods and vibrant nightlife. Your pup will pass them all by to get to Shelby Dog Park for some off leash romping in this green, shady spot. Clip the leash back on to tackle the Shelby Bottoms Greenway, a 6.5-mile trek through the city. You’ll pass the Shelby Bottoms Nature Center as you head into miles of forested land. Serious hikers can cross over the river on the Cumberland Pedestrian Bridge to continue on the Stones River Greenway that will take you right to the Two Rivers Dog Park, a huge 7-acre pupperdise that’s sure to tucker out your favorite pooch.

Whether you keep on the Stones River Greenway till the end, or you just need a quick off-leash play spot, the Percy Priest Dog Park in the Antioch/Priest Lake area offers a large open space for safe playing near the Percy Priest Dam. In the summer months, dogs can beat the heat with fountains, hoses and pools right in the park.

Nashville’s dog parks are furbulous places to explore, but be sure your dog has current rabies and license tags before you visit. Always have your leash on hand when inside off leash parks, and keep the leash on your dog anywhere outside of those areas. Have clean-up bags on hand to promptly pick up after your pup. Most Nashville dog parks prohibit Pit Bulls, so be sure to research where your Pittie can visit before you go adventuring.

Dog Walking in Nashville with Wag!

With all the music and color in this big city, we’re sure your pup can’t wait to explore all that Nashville has to offer. And with Wag!, your pup can get moving even when you are away.

Scheduling a walk for your pup is easy with Wag! Just download the Wag! app, choose the pawfect date and time for your pup, then pick the right length of walk. Whether an on-demand walk in the same day, a one-time walk, or recurring walks to tire out your active pooch, dog walkers with Wag! can give your dog the exercise they crave.

Got a Labrador Retriever, the most pupular of Nashville dogs? Or maybe a working German Shepherd? These active pups need lots of 60-minute walks to get tuckered out. A 30-minute spin around the neighborhood can give Beagles lots to sniff, while smaller Jack Russell Terriers may be content with a quick 20-minute stroll. Wag! pet caregivers can even Drop-In on your retired Australian Shepherd who’s lost their pep to put a wag back in their tail.

Don’t make your dog wait to explore this puptastic city, book a walk with Wag! today!
