“ALL dogs allowed! Every dog is the best dog ❤”

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 hair is my favorite accessory!”

I have been the go to pet sitter/walker for the last 7 years for several physicians in the area. I’ve never met a pup that I didn’t love! I’m very loyal, honest, caring, and treat all the babies that I care for as if they are my own.

Hi, my name is Brittany and I love all dogs, but specialize in the big ones. When I lived in Georgia, I spent some time rescuing pitbulls from bad homes and loving them in my home until they were ready to be relocated to new happy homes. Along the way, I was able to raise my own Pitbull, Tank, who is now 10yrs old and is the sweetest love of my life. I have moved to Texas now and would like to continue contributing to the happy dog community. I love walking your furry ones and giving them love!

I have been a dog walker for 10+ years and I love the relationship that I can have with a pet aside from the owner/pet relationship. I am like the grandparent that gets to spoil and love them then I get to see them every day or when parents go out of town and we get to have a fun time and play hard. I love talking to them and at some point I expect them to start talking back.

Dog Walking in Dallas

Dog Walking Fun Fact #1:

Daily exercise is great for us, but it’s also wonderful for our furry friends. Active dogs can keep their joints limber and obesity at bay, which lowers their risk of heart disease, arthritis and diabetes. Whether tackling the 3-mile Katy Trail through the heart of the city, or just strolling around the block, regular walks are a furrific way to keep your dog living their best life!

Dog Walking Fun Fact #2:

If you come home to chewed-up rugs or shoes, chances are your dog is aching for some excitement. Without enough mental stimulation, dogs can get anxious and could use their energy to destroy your stuff. If the boredom blues has struck your pup, take a walk to a new neighborhood or get some pupperific food at one of the city’s dog-friendly restaurants. Afterwards, hop aboard the historic, pet-friendly McKinney Avenue Trolley to experience the city from a unique perspective. 

Dog Walking Fun Fact #3:

While your dog may have lost many of their wolf instincts, being social isn’t one of them. Rubbing noses with other canines not only teaches your dog important dog behaviors, but it can also help them conquer their fears. Help your dog build confidence with a walk to one of Dallas’s dog parks where your bestie is sure to find a new playmate.

Average Cost of Dog Walking in Dallas

With several dog walking companies and private walkers in Dallas, costs can vary to get your dog moving without you. While short 15-minute strolls could cost you $20, you could be paying upwards of $40 for longer 60-minute walks for your pup. Most services do the majority of their walks on the weekdays during business hours, so you may also be paying an additional $5 - $10 for a late night or weekend walk. And some may even add another charge for booking a walk within the same day.

 Dog walkers with Wag! have both you and your dog in mind, with walks every day of the week at the same rates. Whether your dog loves early morning 20-minute spins around the block for $15, mid-afternoon 30-minute walks for $20, or long 60-minute evening adventures for only $30, Wag! has you covered. And if your dog needs a walk in the same day, just book an on-demand walk for no extra fees.

Not only are Wag! pet caregivers available when your dog needs them, they are also thoroughly vetted and insured to give you peace of mind. With GPS tracking through the Wag! app, and a report card at the end of each walk, dog walkers with Wag! always makes sure you feel safe knowing where your dog goes, and how much they loved their adventure!

Dog Parks in Dallas

With so many diverse areas, your pup will love exploring all the “Big D” has to offer! Head to an oasis under sleek skyscrapers in Downtown Dallas at the Main Street Garden Urban Dog Run where your pup can frolic right in the heart of the city. Or grab a bite at one of Klyde Warren Park’s famous food trucks before letting your pup get some off-leash romping in at My Best Friend’s Park. With benches for you, and water play stations to keep your dog cool in the Texas heat, it’s the pawfect spot!

Located a bone's throw from Downtown, Deep Ellum offers a thriving nightlife scene and several dog-friendly eateries, as well as Bark Park Central. This pawpular doggie hotspot offers water, baggies, and even a rinse-off area in case your buddy gets muddy playing with local pooches.

Get in a little history with a walk down the shady oak-lined boulevards of the Wilson Historic District. The pastel-colored Victorians are a remnant of Dallas’s past, but your pup will be more interested in the Meadows Foundation Dog Park’s grassy open space where they can run free.

For a quieter walk, head to Lake Highlands north of Downtown for an afternoon hike on the 7-mile White Rock Creek Trail through the White Rock Creek Greenbelt. Along the way, check out the Harry S. Moss Park for more trails through a picturesque forest. At the southern end of the trail, make sure to stop at the White Rock Lake Dog Park for an off-leash romp, or head to the beach for a splash in the lake.

While Bent Tree in Far North Dallas is known for its golf course and stately homes, your dog will be heading right for the Wagging Tail Dog Park. At almost 7-acres, there’s plenty to explore in the off-leash area. Venture a little further north to find NorthBark Dog Park’s 22-acres complete with its very own dog beach right on the creek.

Before visiting any off-leash areas in Dallas, be sure your dog is current with their rabies vaccinations. Residents should also have their dogs registered with the city. Always have a leash on when entering or exiting dog areas, and anywhere outside of off-leash areas. Keep clean-up bags handy, and promptly pick up after your pup wherever you travel.

Dog Walking in Dallas with Wag!

While we are sure your dog’s favorite time of day is taking a walk with you, life may have other plans. To keep your dog moving when you can’t be there, Wag! is your dog’s other best friend!

Got a large Dallas favorite like a Labrador or Golden Retriever who can’t sit still? Dog walkers with Wag! can tire out these energy furballs with daily 60-minute walks. If you have a smaller Chihuahua who wants to secure their territory, or a Shih Tzu that just needs to get social, they would love a shorter 15-minute stroll. Meaty Bulldogs who want to get out, but have limited energy, may enjoy a 30-minute meander, with breaks of course! Even if your older German Shepherd has lost their mobility, Wag! can brighten their day too with a Drop-In visit right in their living room.

All you need to do to get your dog moving is download the Wag! app, choose a date and time, then pick the length of walk that’s pawfect for your pup! You’ll always find the type of walk that your dog needs most with our on-demand walks, one-time walks, or recurring walks. And with pawtastic GPS tracking, and text and video updates from your walker, you’ll never miss a step.

Don’t wait to get your dog out and about, book a walk with Wag! today!

Hound-dog history buffs will have a blast at Dallas Heritage Village, a 20-acre living history museum. Though doggos aren't allowed inside the preserved Victorian buildings, they're welcome to wander the grounds with you on-leash. This just scratches the surface of dog-friendly adventures on offer in Downtown. If you're planning to visit the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza to learn about JFK's legacy and assassination, book a dog walker in Dallas  only service dogs are allowed inside.
