About Urban Walkies


Established on the foundation of integrity and passion, Urban Walkies is a highly respected dog walking resource based in Auckland that aims to deliver you and your pup the most educational, immersive, and fun-loving experiences you both deserve. Cultivated by a dedicated and trained team of dog walking professionals, Urban Walkies is a brand renowned for not just influencing memorable walking adventures, but also helping dog owners truly understand their four-legged babies, increase their bonds, and master the art of positive reinforcement. Even more, doing so all while propelling community/environmental initiatives forward every step of the way.  


Founded by multi-certified dog trainer and professional dog walker Kylie Saint Claire, it didn’t take long for Urban Walkies to transform into an endorsed team supporting clients throughout Auckland. Part of that stems from the owner’s history in connecting with dogs through close personal bonds, and the other from their extended certifications in Pet CPR, Pet Safety, Situational Awareness, and Emergency Response that gives clients confidence that their dogs are in the most qualified hands. With this as their base, Urban Walkies has quickly become idolized for their ongoing adaptations to industry advancements, sustainable products, and pet adoption advocation/local shelter support – collectively rendering them a finalist in Central Auckland for the Westpack Auckland Business Awards for People’s Choice in 2020 and become nominated for that same award again in 2022. 


Where fun, adventure, and accountability collide. In the end, nothing makes the Urban Walkies team happier than delivering clients 5-star experiences that bring them and their pups closer together. From the scenic Auckland views to rich training insights, Urban Walkies ultimately demonstrates their devotions by delivering high-performing services that inevitably bridge bonding gaps between those with four legs and two. This, in conjunction with their eco-friendly focus and reputation for continuously upgrading their services as new tech innovations arise, is what can solidify your confidence that your expectations won’t just be met from first step to last, but exceeded every time.
