Dog Walking in San Antonio

Dog Walking Fun Fact #1:

When your dog is twiddling their paws at home, boredom may be lurking around the corner. If dogs don’t get enough physical and mental exercise, they could try to chew or dig their way to excitement while you are gone. Save your belongings by giving your dog something to wag about with regular walks. Spice up life with a search for the World’s Largest Cowboy Boots, or take a trek through nature at the Government Canyon State Park.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #2:

Spending time with your furry bestie makes life pawsome. Keep the good times rolling by helping your dog stay healthy. Regular walks can decrease your dog’s risk of developing arthritis, diabetes and heart disease, which can lengthen their active years. Daily walks through the neighborhood will keep you both in great shape, but for some extra cardio, tackle one of San Antonio’s trails.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #3:

While it’s fun to play with your peers, for dogs, its good for them too! Rubbing noses with other canines can teach your dog good manners, and help them build confidence which can bring shy dogs out of their shell. Taking daily strolls around the block, or to one of San Antonio’s dog parks, gives your dog lots of chances to meet new furiends.

Average Cost of Dog Walking in San Antonio

Your dog is always ready for adventure, but you may have other plans. To get your dog moving in Alamo City, you may be paying $25 for a 30-minute stroll, or $35 to $50 for a 60-minute walk. Some dog walking services only work Monday through Friday during business hours, which means if you get home late from work or need a walk on the weekends, your pup is out of luck.

Wag! was made to accommodate busy schedules and energetic pups! Thoroughly vetted and insured dog walkers on the Wag! app are ready every day of the week to get your dog the exercise they crave. Whether your dog prefers a 20-minute spin for around $15, a 30-minute meander for about $20, or even a 60-minute trek for an average of $30, Wag! has you covered all day long. And if your dog’s energy just won’t quit, you’ll save 15% when you book multiple walks in advance.

You can always keep track of your dog’s steps with real time GPS tracking through the Wag! app. After each walk, your Pet Caregiver will also leave a report card about your dog’s day so you’ll know just how much fun your furry bestie had. 

Dog Parks in San Antonio

With loads of history and tacos galore, you and your pup will have plenty to explore in this muttropolis. City pups will love a trip Downtown to the Madison Square Dog Park for an off leash romp. One large, fenced in area welcomes pups of all sizes to play right in the heart of San Antonio. If your pup still has some pep in their step, hop on the San Antonio River Walk for a scenic tour of the river on stone bridges and walking paths. Head north to catch a glimpse of the Alamo, or south to explore historic missions.

Take a stroll along the Old Spanish Trail on Fredericksburg Road to see early 20th century architecture in Uptown. To the north, your pup is sure to have a blast at Lady Bird Johnson Dog Park which features a separate small dog section, agility equipment, and water fountains. Hikers can hop on the Salado Creek Greenway and head northwest for another fun pupperdise at the McAllister Dog Park where dogs can sniff the fire hydrants and jump on the exercise equipment.

Whether you drive or keep hiking on the Greenway, your dog will love a stop at the Phil Hardberger Dog Parks in the adjacent North Central neighborhood. Separate fenced-in areas in the east and west sections of the park offer obstacle courses, drinking fountains, and big and small dog areas.

Within a sprawling green space in the middle of South San Antonio, the Pearsall Dog Park is a furrific retreat for social pups to kick up their paws. Small dogs can play safely in their own section, while all dogs have access to water and some shady spots for a pawse.

Before heading out to any of San Antonio’s furbulous dog parks, be sure your dog is current on their vaccinations, and wearing their collar and license tags. City dog parks are open from 5 AM to 11 PM, and allow two dogs per person on each visit. Keep your dog on leash whenever entering or exiting off leash areas, and anywhere outside of them. Bring clean-up bags wherever you travel to promptly pick up after your pooch.
