“Your Singing Wag Walker”

Hi fellow dog lover! I’m Carrie! I can spot a dog a mile away and with hearts in my eyes, I say, “Dog!” I have a cutie sweetie Beagle/Terrier named Dottie. I’ve dog sat for many friends and private clients, volunteered at the Texas Independent Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue and have partnered with my own dog sitter, taking on a few of her furry clients as well. I can’t wait to meet, sing to and love on your fur baby!

“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 Walking in Fort Worth

Dog Walking Fun Fact #1:

Walks with your dog are fun, but they are also good for you and your pup! While exploring your neighborhood, you can reduce both your risks of obesity, diabetes and heart disease, conditions which could shorten your active years. Try hiking a trail at the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge for some extra cardio to help you live your best lives together.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #2:

If your dog is twiddling their paws while you are away, you could be returning to ripped up pillows and chewed shoes. Boredom can make even a good dog act out in their search for excitement, but daily walks can help them relax by stimulating their body and mind. Take a stroll through the Fort Worth Water Gardens which were once the home of Hell’s Half Acre, an Old West gambling area that had hosted Doc Holliday and the famous Earp Brothers.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #3:

Whether your dog is a social butterfly, or hides behind you, playing with other pups is key to good manners. Just like wolves, dogs who romp with other canines learn important social skills, and build their confidence as they learn what is and isn’t acceptable. Taking walks in your area, or to a Fort Worth dog park, can give your dog the chance to practice those skills as they greet new potential playmates.

Average Cost of Dog Walking in Fort Worth

Busy pet pawrents who want to keep their dogs active in Cowtown when they are away often look for a dog walker. While short 20-minute spins are around $20, you could be paying up to $30 for 30-minute walks, or even $40 for longer 60-minute ones. Some services require you to book on-going walks to be a customer, while others could charge an additional fee for last minute walks.

Wag! knows that life doesn’t always go according to plan, and offers walks whenever your dog needs them. Dog walkers on the Wag! app are available every day of the week to get your dog moving on a 20-minute walk for around $15, a 30-minute meander for about $20, or a 60-minute adventure averaging only $30. With one-time walks available, you are never obligated to schedule recurring walks. But if your dog loves the exercise, you could save 15% when you book multiple walks in advance. And with on-demand, you’ll never pay extra for same day walks.

Thoroughly vetted and insured Pet Caregivers with Wag! always keep you in the loop. You can follow your pup’s pawsteps with real time GPS tracking through the Wag! app. And with a report card after each walk, you’ll get all the highlights of your dog’s day.

Dog Parks in Fort Worth

Once an army outpost along the Chisholm Trail, Fort Worth today has lots of exciting places to explore with your pup! If you two love being in the middle of it all, head Downtown to Sundance Square to enjoy a coffee and snack while people-watching in this busy section. When your dog needs some off-leash action, head to East Fort Worth to the Fort Woof Dog Park! This pupular canine hangout is fully fenced-in with large sections for big and small dogs. Not only does this park have tons of room to mingle with new furiends, there’s also agility equipment, drinking fountains and doggie fire hydrants for the playful pups.

For dogs who love to explore, the best park in Fort Worth is the expansive ZBonz Dog Park! Located in the Western Hills – Ridgelea neighborhood, this former golf course features 10-acres of off leash excitement, with big and small dog sections, obstacle courses and lots of room to roam. Ponds in each section offer a puptacular way to keep cool, and drinking fountains make sure everyone stays hydrated.

Head north to the Fort Worth Design District’s unique blend of warehouses, office spaces and boutique businesses. Nestled in the Golden Triangle Business Park is the puptastic Golden Triangle Dog Park! With a small dog section, stone water fountains and agility equipment, this park is the pawfect way to spend an afternoon in the far north area of the city.

If your dog is the shy type, the quiet Keenum-Shelton Dog Park is the place for them. Located in Lake Worth, a small community entirely surrounded by the city of Fort Worth, this dog park features two large fenced-in enclosures for differently sized pups. Both areas have doggie fire hydrants, agility equipment, clean-up bags and trash cans, and even patches of shade to shield you and your pooch from the scorching sun.

While each dog park has its own list of rules, be sure your dog is licensed and vaccinated, and wearing appropriate tags before visiting any of them. Always keep your dog leashed outside of off leash areas, and when entering and exiting them.
