There’s nothing our furry pets love more than a treat, toy and a long walk, but which cities have the best spaces for taking your dog on a stroll?

A recent study by LawnStarter ranked the top 174 large cities based on walkability, environment, services and safety.

Walkability was judged based on the number of errands that could be done without the need of a car, and environment was based on the proximity of dog-friendly parks. The services category measured the availability of local dog-walking services, and safety analyzed the crime statistics and pedestrian fatalities.

Some cities scored high in walkability but poorly in safety and so on. While Orlando, Florida, had the most dog walkers, they also had the most pedestrian fatalities. New York ranked fifth for walkability but 168th for its pricey services.
