“Pounding Pavement for Pups!”

I have had dogs all my life, I have always loved them. I got involved in rescue over 10 years ago and have been fortunate to help and love many dogs. Being able to care for them and see them transform from the sick, scared, or abused (often all of those) dogs into healthy, loving babies is so rewarding. They are so loving, and deserve the very best we can do for them!

Dog Walking in Arlington

Dog Walking Fun Fact #1:

Just like you, your dog can suffer from inactivity. To keep joints healthy and obesity at bay, your canine pal needs regular exercise. Daily walks are not only the pawfect time to bond, but they can also keep you and your dog in great shape, which can lengthen your active years together.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #2:

It can get pretty boring for your pup when you are away, but it doesn’t have to end in disaster. If you come home to shredded rugs and pillows, your dog needs some physical and mental stimulation. Taking walks works out your dog’s body and mind as they process information about their environment, which can allow them to relax when home.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #3:

All dogs love to play, but some need a lesson in manners! Jumpers and hiders alike can learn proper social skills by meeting and playing with other dogs. Just like in the wild, packs teach each other how to behave and help build confidence. Help your dog be their best with daily walks around your neighborhood, or to an Arlington dog park, where they are sure to meet new furiends.

Average Cost of Dog Walking in Arlington

When your dog needs some exercise in Aggtown, you may be looking to hire a walker while you are away. On average, 30-minute walks cost around $25, while longer 60-minute treks could be as much as $45. Some dog walking services only offer midday walks, which means your pup may be out of luck if they need a late-night stroll.

 Dog walkers with Wag! are there every day of the week to take your dog exploring in furbulous Arlington. Whether on a 20-minute walk for $15, a 30-minute spin for $20, or even a 60-minute adventure for only $30, your dog can work out that energy from morning till night. And if your dog is an active pooch who can never sit still, you’ll save 15% when you book multiple walks in advance.

Thoroughly vetted and insured pet caregivers with Wag! keep you connected from wherever you are with real time GPS tracking through the Wag! app. And with a report card after each walk, you can see just how exciting your dog’s day was.

Dog Parks in Arlington

In a big state like Texas, people tend to live large with sprawling open areas and bustling metropolitan cities. And in Arlington, pooch hot spots are no exception.

In West Arlington, your dog will love romping the spacious 5-acres of the Rush Creek Dog Park. Not only does this fully fenced-in space feature a separate area for the petite pooches, there’s also benches, drinking water, and lots of room to roam. After chasing furiends or relaxing in the shade, you can clip the leash back on for a leisurely stroll on paths in the surrounding Rush Creek Linear Park.

Get back to nature with your pup at the Tails and Trails Dog Park in Southeast Arlington. This pup oasis is nestled between Arlington Animal Services and Fish Creek. Big and small dogs have their own fenced-in sections spread over 5.7-acres, and can explore the open areas or in the trees, with benches and trash cans placed throughout.

For a more traditional dog park experience, the Arlington Humane Society Dog Park is a private off leash 5-acre space. Access does require a membership which can be obtained at the Humane Society next door. Once a member, your dog can cavort with other canines in the big or small dog areas, or take a spin around the AKC regulation agility course.

With few off leash areas inside Arlington, many residents venture into nearby cities for more park options. The Central Bark Park in adjacent Grand Prairie is just a bit smaller at 3-acres, but still offers soft grass that’s easy on the paws, areas for differently sized pups, varying terrain to explore, benches and water for both people and dogs.  

Each park features their own list of rules for dogs and their pawrents to follow, so be sure you are familiar with them before taking off the leash. In any park, be sure your dog is leashed outside of off leash areas, and when entering or exiting them. Your dog should also be fully vaccinated and licensed before visiting. Always have clean-up bags on hand to pick up after your pup.

Dog Walking in Arlington with Wag!

It’s easy to get your dog the exercise they crave, even while you are away! With Wag!, your dog never has to miss the adventure.
