Hi I'm Trevor, when I was a kid, my favorite thing in the world was getting off the bus and seeing my Rottweiler, hunter greet me. He was the first dog my family ever owned and I fell in love with dogs ever since then. I'm excited to get to meet new dogs, and new people as well!

In my experience with animals I have learned to be patient with them. I look at each animal individually because I know each has their own personality, but I also understand certain breeds have specific personality traits. I don't claim to be a dog expert, but I am firm, conscientious, & loving, which is what I believe that dogs feel in my presence. I have a lot of fun spending time with dogs, but at the end of the day my main priority is every dog's safety and well-being. I am flexible in my tactics, so any instructions you have for your dogs I will make sure to incorporate into my time with them.

Hello, I'm Jasmine and I've been taking care of several dogs since 2013 specifically giant schnauzers. I usually stay with them a couple of nights to a week at a time and take care (3 yrs, 6 yrs and 12 yr. olds) I've recently moved to the Austin area and found out about Wag! I work from home as a graphic and web designer so I have free time depending upon what time of year it is. I've had the same clients for over 8 years so I know what my schedule will be like year around. I'm athletic and figured this would be a great way to meet some new pups, get exercise and explore Austin. If your dog is specific about the location they prefer to walk, treats or food please let me know. I love to cater to them!

Dog Walking in Taylor

You know how they say some things were just meant to be? Taylor, Texas was just meant to be. Because it was in an ideal location for trading and shipping, Taylor became an important and open city for trade for not only the railroad, but for cattle caravans as well. In 1879, a fire destroyed many of the town's residences and businesses, but the city recovered swiftly. By the early 1900s, it even had a volunteer fire department with 100 people and water hoses fueled by the San Gabriel River -- this was almost unheard of at the time. You and your dog can come take a walk down the old shipping lanes, learn about the cattle trades and how cattle shipping worked, and even get to know the iconic cowboys of the time.

If you would like to see the more primitive side of Taylor, then you will enjoy Taylor Park. The trails are left completely natural. There are primitive campsites that give you a chance to really immerse yourself in nature. The restrooms need some work, but they are usable. It has a ghost town feel and offers seclusion away from the busy city. 

Murphy Park is quite the opposite. It is 120 acres of space. You can walk the trails, enjoy the playground, and even enjoy the modernized bathroom. There is always a crowd here, so be prepared to make some new friends!

Fannie Robinson Park is 55 acres of room to roam. There's so much to do here that your pup won't want to leave! You and your dog can walk the trail system, which is paved and has trash cans along the way. Or, you can play ball on one of the 4 ball courts. There is plenty of green space to sit and enjoy the quiet. You will want to bring water, as dogs are not allowed in the bathrooms. Doggie waste bags are not provided either, so you will want to bring your own. Most areas of the park require pups to stay on-leash, but there are spots where you are allowed to let your pet off their leash if he is voice trained and well-behaved.

Bull Branch Park has a duck pond that you can walk around and enjoy. There are fish in the pond, so bring a rod and reel and cast a few lines with your buddy by your side. This is a leash-only park, because the ducks run the show here! Make sure Fido doesn't get too friendly with the ducks, as the park strives to keep them safe. There are restrooms located beside the baseball field, but they are only open when there is a game. Bring your own water. Don't forget your doggie waste bags as well. Bring some treats for the ducks -- keeping in mind that bread is actually bad for ducks! -- but be warned; they aren't very forgiving to picnics!

Masfajitas is the best place to stop and enjoy some authentic Mexican food. They allow pets in the smoking area, which is outdoors, as long as they are well-behaved and on a leash. The staff won't serve your dog, so be sure to bring a water dish for him. This is the place to come for fajitas, quesadillas, and of course, tacos. If you'd rather have American cuisine than Mexican fare, dive into a burger and fries or a seafood dish. No Mexican restaurant is complete without adult beverages! Try a margarita or sip your favorite beer while you wait on your food to arrive.
