Top Podcasts to Listen To While Walking Your Dog

If you’re a pet lover or a pet professional, there’s a dog podcast out there for you! The shows I’ve listed in this post include the most popular dog podcasts and new shows you haven’t heard yet. Open your podcast app, lace up your shoes, grab a leash and hit the pavement. These are the best podcasts to listen to while you walk your dog!

If you can imagine a topic about dogs, I promise there’s a podcast about that specific subject! There are shows for dog owners with vets, dog comedians, dog trainers, holistic health experts, dog sitting business gurus, and regular pet parents sharing stories about their rescues and purebred dogs alike! There’s even a show that asks the question we’re all thinking… “Can I pet your dog?”

The Best Dog Podcasts to Listen To On A Dog Walk

Before I started my own pet industry podcast, I listened to so many great shows that kept me company on dog walks and car rides. Podcasts are the only type of media you can consume while you’re doing something else. This means you can listen to a podcast while you’re working out, cleaning, driving, or walking. It makes it so easy to binge-listen to a new show!

I’ve broken this list down into a few categories: Podcasts for dog lovers and pet parents; Podcasts by Dog Trainers, Veterinarians and other Experts; and Podcasts about the Pet Industry. As of May 2021, I added some new shows at the bottom of each list!
