    In the UK, you take an animal FOR a walk.

    Yes, that is much more natural in the US, as well. If you are going on a walk yourself and the pet just happens to be accompanying you, you might say "on a walk." But "for a walk" is the phrase used all the time when little Fido wants some fresh air.
