Ken Walks Dogs is an established team of professional canine motivators exclusively serving dogs of Austin, Texas since 2018. We offer private dog walking services, pack walks, scenic hikes on the Barton Creek Greenbelt, epic swimming adventures, Playcare, pet taxi services and so much more!

 

Every adventure is GPS-monitored from start to finish. Each service ends with a detailed report card featuring a map of your dog's walking route, plus fun photos and videos of your dog's adventure shared straight to your dog's profile on the Ken Walks Dogs app!

Every Austin dog walker on our team is licensed, background checked, bonded, and insured by one of the best commercial insurance providers in the biz. Believe it or not, the extensive insurance coverage we provide for our team, our clients, their pets and their homes exceeds that of big-name dog walking apps like Rover or Wag! No expense is spared when it comes to protecting our pack, providing peace of mind and ultimate accountability every step of the way.

Nearly all of our walk services include transportation to a nearby park, pet shop or trailhead for dogs looking to break up the monotony of their regular neighborhood walk routine and see something new every day.
