Austin Dog Walking + Dog Fitness Services

Let's GO For A Walk ATX!

Sporty Dog Walks are Beneficial For All Dogs, Big or Small! From the largest of Great Danes to the tiniest of Yorkies, your dog can reap the countless benefits from a Mid Day Walk, while getting Exercise + Socialization + Mental Stimulation + Basic Leash Training + Positive Behavior Reinforcement either one-on-one or on group walks. 

Hike N Sniff + Mental Stimulation

On average, most dogs need at least an hour of daily exercise to keep them physically + mentally healthy + happy. Longer Walks, Greenbelt Hikes, are great for dogs who need more exercise as well as Social and Mental Stimulation to reduce unwanted behaviors or encourage appropriate social behaviors around other pups.  We can take your dog to an off leash area to explore or find a trail nearby. Perfect for Active pups, or those who need a little extra outside time to sniff n explore!

Dog Sports + Play Time

For the dog that needs some extra attention or to burn off excess energy. We can engage your dog with a variety of toys, play fetch, chuck-it, frisbee, tug-of-war, or your pup's favorite sport or toy to help improve agility and coordination as well as to encourage problem solving skills in a way that is mentally stimulating and builds self confidence in your own back yard or at an off leash area.
