I'm very happy I found Anna to pet sit my pug. She's incredibly knowledgable about dogs and I know my dog is in safe hands with her. I used to worry that my dog would be miserable/lonely when I traveled, but she was such a happy camper when she stayed with Anna. (I'm not even sure she missed me!) I highly recommend using C&A Pet Care!

    I have an English Pointer that requires a lot of attention due to her high energy level. If she doesn't get the exercise she needs, she will tear up the house. This is why we don't leave her by herself. Shannon makes sure that my pointer gets the attention and exercises needed to ensure that the dog doesn't get bored and tear things up. Shannon is a great professional and I highly recommend her!

    As a dog trainer myself, I have personally trained with Sam. Sam has wonderful people skills and can manage well, does well with answering questions and can properly demonstrate skills needed to show how things should be done with their dog. She connects with dogs very well and has an incredible understanding of the dog world, whether it be mentally or physically. Sam is also a talented groomer and does an incredible job! Sam is a wonderful trainer, groomer and overall great pet professional. You won't be disappointed in her!

      Thank you Abraham for helping me out with my dog. Abraham did a great job on training and walking my dog. I recommend Abraham if you're looking for someone who loves and understands dogs and wants your fur baby taken very well care of.

      About

      I started this service for my friends to begin with. I noticed that people needed someone to take care of their animals, feed them, walk them, just spend quality time with them while owners were on vacation, or an unexpected family emergency caused them to have to leave town. Families love their animals, they are part of the family. I am there to step in and take that extra stress and worry off of your shoulders. So, you can enjoy your family vacation, honeymoon, or deal with a family loss. My friends that I helped and assured that I would take care of their best friend (cat, dog, fish, bird, etc) were relieved to know that was one less thing they had to worry about. Our animals know when something is wrong or if they are being left. I step in and keep them happy until their family returns! What makes my business work for me is I love animals! I love my job! And i will treat your best friend, as if it were my own!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      What does a dog walker do?

      We all know our dogs love going on long, adventure-filled walks, but jobs and family and commuting can make it difficult to give them the leash time they deserve. You can hire a professional dog walker to make sure your furry friend gets adequate exercise and outdoor time each day. A professional dog walker may be an individual contractor or work for a dedicated dog-walking company. In either case, you want to make sure the pro has the appropriate insurance in case of an emergency. Some people opt to give the dog walker a key to their house; others to have them pick up the dog from the yard. Dog walking can happen as often as multiple times per day, or just a few times a month as needed. Here are some questions to ask when you are interviewing a new dog walker:  

      • Will you or someone else be walking my dog?
      • Do you have a backup plan if you can’t make it for a scheduled walk?
      • Will you walk my dog by itself, or do you walk several dogs at once?
      • What are your different walk routes?
      • When will you pick up and drop off?
      • How will we communicate?
      • Do I have to commit to a schedule or are you flexible?
      • What’s your cancellation policy?
      • What’s your response plan if my dog gets injured or becomes sick?
      • How and how often do I pay you?
      • Do you offer package pricing if I buy multiple dog walks up front?

      How much do dog walkers charge?

      The cost of dog walking depends on several factors including length and frequency of dog walks, the number of dogs on the walk, distance to your house, and any additional services you request. The national average cost range for a dog walk is $10-$20, but that price will vary based on where you live in the country and the regional cost of living and doing business. 

      The longer the dog walk, the higher your costs will be. Dog walkers offer a range of walk lengths, from 15-minute potty breaks to long hikes of 120 minutes or more. For example, a dog walker may charge $15 for a 15-minute walk and $35 for a 35-minute walk. Requesting that your dog be the only animal on the walk will typically mean a higher cost than if you permit your dog to be walked in a pack of dogs. You may be able to get a discounted rate if you have more than one dog to be walked. For example, a professional dog walker may charge $28 for one dog or $33 for two dogs on a 60-minute walk. If you need additional help — like feeding the dogs or giving them medication — dog walkers may be able to provide this service at an additional fee. Dog walkers may charge higher rates for walking your dogs on holidays. 

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
