Hi y’all, my name is Alex. I grew up in San Antonio all my life where since I could walk and talk I have had some breed of dog. I had mainly grew up with a chihuahua named Gizmo who was my world. I started walking and taking care of dogs when I was around 10 years old I would pet sit for my family members. All the different dogs I got the chance to take care of and walk was so amazing to my small child mind that since that time I have loved animals. I have a deep love and compassion for our 4 or sometimes less legged friends. I have cared for pups that are barely a day old to some that are in the last stages of life and have become a grater person for it. I have had the pleasure of owning many dogs as my own pets such as chihuahuas, labradors, German Shepherds, Huskies, dachshunds, and several more. I would love to have the opertunity to help take care of you loveable family pets by walking them and letting them have a fun time. I myself walk and jog with my own dogs so I know how to keep pace and when to give them a brake for water and potty time. My overall mane concerns are that your dogs have a fun time walking and if they want socializeing with other dogs as well. I fully intend to make your Wag! experience with me a fantastic one.

Dog Walking in Universal City

Universal City is a midsized town in Bexar County that borders the Randolph Air Force Base.  Resident canines love the local parks and the access to the big city life of nearby San Antonio. This dog friendly town also has three veterinary clinics, so pups know they are always in good hands.

It’s no secret that this town has some pupperific parks and trails. Treat your four legged friend to a walk in the Universal City Veterans Park. This eight acre park sits right on the Cibolo Creek, so your pooch can enjoy some delightful scenery while she exercises. During the dog days of summer, be sure to stop beneath one of the shade trees and give your pup a long drink of water. The Cibolo Creek Primitive Trail can be accessed in this park. Follow this trail up the creek and over to Universal City Park.

Red Horse Park is another great place to spend some time with your pal. Not only does this park have playgrounds, sport courts, and ball fields, it also features 3/8 mile shaded walking path.  After a few laps around the trail, find a spot at a picnic table and enjoy some lunch.

Don’t let the Texas heat fool you; dogs in this town love spending time in their parks!

When your pup is craving time in the great outdoors, head over to the 32-acre Universal City Park. There's a half mile walking path for your leashed pup to enjoy. There’s also plenty of room on the three baseball fields, football field, and disc golf course, which your pup can explore between games. An open pavilion is a perfect place to rest and have or snack, or picnic lunch, and a concession stand with restrooms can be quite convenient. Afterwards, you can both cool off with some shaved ice from nearby Bahama Bucks, where dogs are allowed at the outdoor seating.

Is your pup hankering for a little off-leash fun? Take him to the Universal City Dog Park in the Olympia Hills neighborhood to let your pooch run free in a safe environment. This dog park features separate areas for both small dogs 30 lbs and under, and larger dogs, with both sides offering waste collection and disposal along with water stations. Get a little fresh air and escape the Texas heat with three shaded areas that have benches for you and your four-legged friend! All dogs who play here must have a city license and rabies tags visible.

The Live Oak Park neighborhood is just outside of Universal City in the bordering town of Live Oak, and is home to the reservoir of the same name, Live Oak Park. This stunning park features some beautiful scenery, and trails that wrap around not one, but two small ponds. It's a serene and quiet place for you and your pup to get away from it all and enjoy nature at its finest. Leashes are required, but there are plenty of places to walk with your pooch. All you'll need to enjoy your day is your best friend, some waste bags and water for you both to drink!

If you didn't know this place existed, chances are, you probably wouldn't be able to find it, as the Crescent Bend Nature Park is a hidden gem tucked out of the way down FR-78. Just a ten minute drive from Universal City in neighboring Schertz, this park is well worth the trip. There is a lot of wildlife in the area and on the trails, so a leash is paramount to keeping your pup safe by making sure your best friend doesn't take off after a deer or a bird unexpectedly. For a pawrific walk, take the main trail that circles around the park along, or one of several smaller trails, some of which lead down to a small stream. It's the perfect place to spend a hot, Texas summer day with your furry friend! There are plenty of water fountains for humans and canines alike.

Can't get enough of the great outdoors? Then the Aviation Heights neighborhood on the border of University City in the town of Schertz, is the place for you! The Schertz Dog Park is a large fenced in space behind the local fire department. Featuring a bench for relaxing, and waste bags and trash cans, this open area is perfect for running out the energy in your feisty pup! If you'd like to get some exercise in for yourself too, take a stroll around Veterans Park where you can stroll among the monuments that honor our nation's heroes. The Schertz Trailheads are located nearby for hiking along the Cibolo Creek. Leashes are required for hikes on the Schertz trails and Veterans Park, and as always, come prepared with waste bags and water.
