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.

“Making it as easy as PAW-ssible”

Hello! My name is Amanda, and people call me the dog whisperer. I have been surrounded by dogs (both mine and my friends/family) my whole life, and feel I develop a unique and special bond with each one. I have two pups right now, and our favorite thing to do is going for hikes together. There's also a dog trail nearby that is always so fun to meet new puppy pals at. I have worked in a veterinary clinic, volunteered at animal shelters, and have even worked with horses. Animals are one of my many passions, and I look forward to meeting you and your pup/s.

Dog Walking in Salt Lake City

Dog Walking Fun Fact #1:

It’s fun to spend time with furiends, but for your dog, it’s good for them too. Playing with their peers can help your dog learn proper pup etiquette, which can work wonders for jumpers. Rubbing noses with new doggos can also build confidence, which your dog can use to conquer their fears. Taking regular walks around the block, or to one of Salt Lake City’s dog parks, gives your dog the opportunity to meet lots of new potential playmates.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #2:

The boredom blues doesn’t just cause naps- it can also cause destruction around your happy home. If your dog isn’t getting enough physical and mental exercise, they could resort to finding fun chewing your rugs or pillows. Give your dog something to wag about with daily walks around your neighborhood. Here, they can work out their wiggles while stimulating their minds collecting information about their territory.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #3:

Playing with your pup is priceless, but what if you could play together longer? Regular exercise can help you and your dog fend off serious health conditions which can shorten your active years together, such as obesity, arthritis and even heart disease. Exploring local areas with your canine pal is a pawfect way to keep in shape. For some extra cardio, head over to Millcreek Canyon where your dog can even trek various trails off-leash on odd-numbered days.

Average Cost of Dog Walking in Salt Lake City

How much does it cost to get your dog walking in the City of the Saints? Short 15-minute spins average around $15, while more pupular 30-minute walks can be as much as $25. Several dog walking companies limit the timeframe of their walks, with some only booking walks on weekdays, and others only at midday. If your pup needs a nighttime or weekend stroll, you could be adding on additional fees of $7 or more per walk.

With Wag!, your dog can get moving every day of the week. Whether on Monday afternoon, or Saturday night, dog walkers with Wag! are ready to pamper your pup on a 20-minute walk for only $15. If your dog needs more of a workout, choose a 30-minute meander for $20, or even a 60-minute stroll for just $30. Best of all, there’s never additional fees for early morning, night or weekend walks. And if it takes a lot to satisfy your energy hound, you can save 15% when you book multiple walks in advance.

Pet Caregivers from Wag! are thoroughly vetted and insured, and always keep you in the loop. Follow along your pup’s steps with real time GPS tracking through the Wag! app. And with a report card at the end of each walk, you’ll know just how furrific your dog’s day was.

Dog Parks in Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City may be the center of the Mormon Church, but its pawmazing location amid gorgeous mountain landscapes offers lots to excite adventurers too. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy snow sports in the winter and hiking in the summer, while dogs love the city’s pawtastic canine hot spots.

Between Capitol Hill and the Wasatch Mountains, take a stroll along the perfectly gridded streets of The Avenues, SLC’s very first neighborhood. On the east side near the cemetery, your pup will love the beautiful grassy areas and tall, mature trees of the Lindsey Gardens. The off-leash area is at the south end, and though it has a doggy water fountain, it isn’t fenced, so be sure your dog is good with verbal commands. If you are closer to Capitol Hill, check out Memory Grove where your dog can trek the Freedom Trail off-leash north of the bridge. On hot days, a splash in the creek is pawrific, but swimming is not allowed.

Though dogs are prohibited in the famous Temple Square which marks the center of the city, playful pups can romp just six blocks south in the fenced-in Pioneer Dog Park. Your dog can ditch the leash and meet new furiends in the big or small dog section, just be sure to bring a bowl for the on-site water.

Home to beautiful scenery and a lovely community, Jordan Park is the place to be! Taking up nearly half of this neighborhood is its namesake park featuring the International Peace Gardens and the fenced-in Jordan Dog Park. Let your dog romp free in this furbulous neighborhood hangout, then put the leash back on to head to the picnic areas located nearby.

In Southeast Liberty Park, all sized dogs can mix and mingle in the large Herman Franks Dog Park. Agility equipment is pupular with the sporty pups, while shaded benches provide a great spot for you to watch all the action.

Before heading out to any of Salt Lake City’s woofderful off leash areas, be sure your dog is fully vaccinated and licensed. Keep clean-up bags on hand to promptly pick up after your pooch. Always have your dog leashed whenever entering or exiting off leash areas, and everywhere outside of them.

Dog Walking in Salt Lake City with Wag!

When your dog is stuck at home in SLC, there’s no need to twiddle their paws. Your furry bestie can still get their exercise when you are away with Wag!

Letting your dog explore is easy with Wag! Once you download the Wag! app, just choose the date and time, then pick the pawfect length of walk for your pup. Select a one-time walk for when your dog needs it most, recurring walks for those furballs who never stop moving, or even on-demand walks for the same day. Dog walkers with Wag! share all the fun moments with text and picture updates, and with GPS tracking, you’ll always know where your dog goes.

If you’ve got an active Salt Lake City favorite, Wag! has you covered. Working German Shepherds and sporty Labrador Retrievers alike would love plenty of 60-minute treks to work out their never ending energy stores. Your affectionate Miniature Schnauzer may look small, but this ratting dog is ready to find adventure on a 30-minute stroll. Got a territorial Yorkie? A 20-minute spin around the block is just what they need to keep an eye on their neighborhood. Wag! pet caregivers can give your dog an experience they will love, whatever their speed. And if your older Shih Tzu has become housebound, Wag! can drop-in to make sure they have everything they need too.

Don’t wait to make your dog’s day great, book a walk in The Valley with Wag! today!
