Dog Walking

Give your dog the exercise it needs. Great for dogs of all ages.

Dogs need plenty of exercise. Dog walking is perfect for hyper dogs or dogs that need more exercise.


Our dog walking service in Columbia, SC and Ogden, UT is different from the run of the mill dog walking service. We promise a quality experience for your pet that is as close as possible to what you would provide for your pet if you were the one doing the walking. We allow plenty of time for stops and petting so that your dog becomes friendly with his dog walker and the pair develop a relationship of trust. The pace will also be determined by your pooch. This means an older or out of shape dog will not be overly taxed and a fit dog won’t be bored.

As an added bonus, we’ll teach your dog good walking habits (like how to heel and stop on command) for free. This means when you are able to begin walking your dog on your own, the experience will be easier and more memorable for both of you. At the end of each visit we’ll even refresh your pet’s water supply.

The majority of the dogs we walk have owners that work long hours, or are unable to physically walk their dogs. Our daily dog walking service is by far the most popular, and most clients choose 3 – 5 visits per week. We all know that daily exercise is important for humans, but it’s equally important for our canine friends. Hyper dogs can really benefit from daily dog walking. This is by far one of the easiest ways to help him calm down. Walking provides your dog a way to burn off that pent-up energy and they’ll even be less likely to get into things they shouldn’t while alone in your home.

South Carolina: Columbia, West Columbia, Lexington, Shandon, Irmo, Rosewood, Pontiac, USC, Ft. Jackson and Forest Acres.

Just moved here from Colorado and found Away Home & Pet Care and I couldn't be happier. I have 2 pampered cats who can be difficult. Robert was an absolute gem. He had our antisocial cat, Baxter, wrapped around his finger. He made us a plaque with pictures of the cat, it was so thoughtful and nice. I especially enjoyed the pictures he sent each day of the cats and what they were up to. I will definitely use them every time I go out of town. Excellent service, communication and had total peace of mind during our entire vacation. Thank you Robert!

This company and service has been the best that I have ever experienced. We had to find someone to care for our Kitty while the kitties owner had surgery. We had a great meet and greet and have never been more more pleased with this service. They are reliable and they take the best care of your animals.

We were a little nervous about getting a pet sitter for our three cats, two of them seniors, but Robert tamed those fears with his first meet and greet visit. He made friends with our cats and had our very senior cat (16) coming out for pets soon after we left. It was such a relief to enjoy our trip away (2 weeks) and know they were in good hands. We were also concerned about the health of our senior cats with someone else, but they are in good shape and not at all nervous as they would be if they had gone to a kennel. We would definitely employ Robert and Away Home & Pet Care on another vacation.

When we had to drop everything and go out of town we called Away Home and were thrilled that Robert was able to come by so quickly. His appearance and decorum was neat and tidy, very professional. He was very detail oriented, very good with our two dogs and cat. They took to him right away. He took detailed notes on all our pets' needs and we felt confident he would take excellent care of them. The rates were very reasonable for two visits (morning and night), and we loved how he shared a well being report with us from each visit which included a short description of the visit and pictures. When we arrived home we found that Robert also left a fantastic picture collage of our pets. Super cute, and much appreciated. All in all, it's clear that Robert takes pride in going the extra mile, and we will definitely be hiring him for all our future trips. It's so nice, and much less stressful on our pets, to enable them to stay at home while still receiving truly excellent care. Thank you, Robert!

I have been a client of Away Home & Pet Care for nearly two years. They are life savers and I don't know how I could own a dog without their help. I particularly appreciate their flexibility and willingness to adapt to my ever-changing schedule ... as well as the goofy pictures I get from my dog's daily walks.
