Hi, I'm Molly! Growing up, my family always included a puppy brother. Between Shadow, our jet black Newfoundland-Labrador mix, and Koda, our fluffy Husky-Malamute mix, I'm extremely comfortable walking or running with large dogs and getting out and about on longer adventures. That said, I adore pups of all sizes and personalities!

Dog Walking in Burlington

Dog Walking Fun Fact #1 

Whether you like walking your dog on city streets, taking in the activity around you, or would rather be out of reach and enjoying the quiet of a nature trail, Burlington and its surroundings are pawfect for walking. With 31 trails covering 201 miles, there’s sure to be the exact right path for you and Parker to get some healthful exercise. Some of the city trails lead you past historic landmarks and street sculptures. Nature trails amble along Lake Champlain and in the fields and woods surrounding it where birds and other wildlife gather.  Either way, you and the pup will love exploring together!

Dog Walking Fun Fact #2

The Burlington Greenway doubles as a recreational trail and a pleasurable route for commuting to Burlington for work. Part of the Island Line Trail, this paved trail features fitness stations and connects major Burlington-area parks as well as the ferry to and from the islands in Lake Champlain. Connecting neighborhoods and businesses, the greenway is a great walking trail, as long as everyone remains polite and friendly.

Dog Walking Fun Fact #3

Did you know that Burlington has many bars and restaurants that welcome pups? Two such places are Sweetwaters and the Magic Hat Brewery. These local eateries and watering holes allow dogs at their outdoor patios and will serve dog-appropriate food when requested. Don’t forget to take along a bottle of doggy wine or beer so your pooch can imbibe along with you! Going out with their best buddy is an impawtant part of your dog's continuing socialization, and what better place for a meet-and-greet than a restaurant or pub?

Average Cost of Dog Walking Services in Burlington

The city of Burlington offers dog walkers, doggy day care facilities, and camps for dogs. How much can you expect to pay for dog walker services in Vermont’s capital city? Dog walker rates in Burlington are $34 for an hour walk and $21 for a 30-minute walk. Compare this with Wag!’s lower fees of $30 on average for an hour-long walk and $20 on average for a half-hour stroll. With most dog walkers, additional dogs from the same household will add an average of $7.50 each to your cost. With Wag! each additional dog is only $5.

Dog walking services through Wag! are not only more economical, but they’re also more convenient. With some walkers, you may have to book as far ahead as a week to get the time slot you need. Many local walkers also limit their hours to short windows in the evenings, weekends, or the middle of the day, which isn’t helpful if you're away from home at different hours. 

By contrast, dog walking with Wag! is on an on-demand basis, so the chances are much better that one of their many local dog walkers will be available when you need them, even on short notice. And if you do have the flexibility to book ahead of time, multiple bookings reserved in advance will result in a 15% discount for you! 

Dog Parks in Burlington

Sometimes dogs just gotta have fun, and while they love their walks with you, they also love to kick up their heels and cavort with their furry friends! For that, Burlington has a solution: pawsome dog parks!

Urban Reserve Off Leash Dog Park, part of the Waterfront Park, is a haven for well-behaved dogs with up-to-date vaccines and licenses. This free dog park doesn’t have a small dog section, so pet parents of small pups will need to keep their eyes open when their small or toy dog is in the park. And if you prefer to keep your fur baby on-leash and take a stroll on the park’s perimeter, along the fence is pawfect for that! 

Another dog park that will help drive the zoomies out of your pooch is the Starr Farm Dog Park. This leash-free dog park is part of the Starr Farm family park in the North End, and it’s a furbulous place to walk with your pup or let them run free with the other dogs. It has a dog agility course, plus pools for cooling off from the summer sun.
