About us

"A dog is one of the remaining reasons why some people can be persuaded to go for a walk" (O A Battista)


Canberra Dog Walks aims to provide dogs and their owners with a wide variety of safe and fun walks around Canberra.

We were inspired to create this site after taking our friends on our favourite walks around Canberra. We are long time Canberra locals who have explored most of Canberra to find dog friendly walks that are interesting for humans too. Our friends loved our walks so much we thought, why not share our best dog walking routes with everyone?

As well as our favourite walks, we've expanded our site to include a Dog Blog with advice on all things 'dog friendly' in Canberra, such as the best dog friendly cafes, the best off leash parks, the best dog walking social groups, and much more.

We hope our walks inspire you to explore new areas of Canberra, even if you don't have a dog. These short walks - between 45 and 90 minutes - showcase the best Canberra has to offer.

All information on our site is free and intended to help you access dog friendly Canberra independently. However, we also lead regular social group walks through the 'meetup' platform. See Canberra Dog Walks Meetup to join the next scheduled group walk.

We can also arrange individual guided walks, tailored to suit your interests.

Use our contact form to make an enquiry, or if you have any suggestions or comments. We'd love to hear from you!
