Hi, I'm Mike! I grew up in Phoenix, AZ and have owned two dogs in my life. I currently live in Salt Lake City, UT and have a dog back home with my parents in Phoenix. I love taking my dog on long walks every time I go back to visit my parents. He's a small Maltese-Poodle mix, but very friendly and loves to play. I enjoy being around animals and pets as well as bringing them to new places to experience. I became a dog walker because of how much I regularly miss my dog.

Over the past 25 years, I have had three dogs and many memories. My dog of 13 years recently died at the age of 15 and I miss our frequent walks, so have been dogsitting for friends. I've enjoyed it so much that I'm branching out to Wag. I am in my mid-50s, work from home as a writer and editor, and really enjoy getting away from the blinking computer screen. I can assure you that I have the maturity and experience to handle any situation involving your dog and am reliable and trustworthy.

Dog Walking in Riverton

Riverton is a suburban city on the west side of the Salt Lake Valley. Once a farming community in the mid-19th century, it is now a thriving town that continues to grow. Locals are lucky to have beautiful views of the Wasatch Mountains to the east, and the Oquirrh Mountains to the west. Resident canines are pleased to have access to over 30 parks in their pawsome community. 

If your pup likes long walks, take her to the Utah and Salt Lake Canal Trail. This 27 mile unpaved path provides your pup with more than enough room for some doggy cardio. It follows a canal that connects the Great Salt Lake with Utah Lake. The Riverton portion mostly cuts through residential areas, and has some access to neighborhood parks.

Riverton has several parks just waiting for your pup. Grab her leash and pay a visit to the Canyon View Park. You’ll find a playground and sport court at this park, but more importantly, you’ll also find an expanse of grassy fields. Your pooch can soak in the sun as she wanders through the open space. West Field Downs Park is another option which features more open fields for your pooch to explore. She’ll love feeling the grass beneath her paws and she sniffs her way around.

If your pup is getting restless, clip on her leash and pay a visit to Dr. O. Roi Hardy Park. This furrific neighborhood park has open fields of grass. Take a couple laps around the park’s perimeter and let your pooch get some exercise. The park also has a pavilion with picnic facilities as well as a playground. To continue your walk, hop on the Jordan River Parkway. This 45 mile trail runs alongside the Jordan River Canal and crosses through various cities as it transverses the Salt Lake Valley.  Enjoy a mix of local flora and fauna as you make your way down the trail.

The Riverton City Park is a puptastic place to spend some quality time with your furry BFF. This massive park is one of the city’s crown jewels, and offers sport courts, a splash pad, a skate park, playgrounds, and fitness stations. Your canine companion will love exploring the five acres of green grass, or just chilling under a tree. He’ll also enjoy strutting his stuff around the paved paths that run throughout the park. Whether you come for just a quick walk, or you stay and hang out for a few hours, this park will make your dog’s tail wag.

Next time your pup needs a walk, head over to Monarch Meadows Park. Not only does this park have a playground, it also has multipurpose fields and a walking trail. If there aren’t any local team sports taking place, feel free to wander through the fields. Let your dog’s nose be the guide as he explores the grass. For something a little more structured, take some laps around the park’s paved paths. The trail circles the fields and gives your pup plenty of room to stretch his four legs. The trail continues outside the park in two directions, so if your pooch is still rearing to go, you’ve got the option to continue your walk.

If your pup needs some off leash time, head over to the Dayland Dog Park. Located in the neighboring town of Draper, this park is only five miles from Riverton. Your pup can chase his new playmates up and down the small hills or splash around in the creek. There is plenty of room for fetch, so bring your pal’s favorite ball. Pet parents can hang out under the pavilions, or get some exercise on the paved path that circles the park. Small pups even have their own separate area. If your buddy gets a little muddy, just stop by the rinsing station on the way out. No bones about it, this park is doggy paradise!

Old Farm Park is in the southwest corner of the city, and is a pupperific place to let your pooch enjoy some fresh air. Clip on her leash and meander through the grassy field. You can also follow the paved path around the park’s perimeter. Since it has a splash pad and playground, this park draws out the neighborhood kids. Your pooch will have the opportunity to socialize and meet new friends. You can access the Utah Lake Distribution Canal Trail from this park, which clocks in at 13 miles and runs alongside a canal. Keep going until your pooch is all tuckered out and ready for a nap.
