These verbs all express movement to a place. How do I decide which to use when I go out to walk my dog'
andar, caminar, ir
In Spain we don't use any of those for walking dogs. We say:
Pasear al perro.
Besides, "ir" is "to go", not "to walk".
I asked a similar question (link text) My question was " How can I say "I am going to take my dog out for a walk"? "
Here is a synopsis of the best answers I received from native speakers:
- We just say: Voy a sacar a mi perro.
- Actually sacar is the verb to use, good job! The caminar part is understood.
- "voy a sacar a mi perro a pasear"
I hope this helps.

Sorry I don't know how to link!
Would 'Voy a paseo con mi perro' be correct?
Is it possible to say: doy una vuelta con el perro? as in "I'm going out for a walk with the dog"
use the one you are comfortable with
