Sometimes it is more stress bringing the dog to the clinic and anal glands make his fuzzy butt stink. Not in my car! Jacie comes to the house and everyone is happy. We can do his nails, ears, glands. I can always count on her. - Sharyn

Barbara is hands down the best groomer around. She has been grooming Pierre for a long time and we are always very pleased with the grooming. She goes the extra mile to please you and doesn't just shave them like so many groomers do. Also, the love that she shows your dog makes you feel good to leave your dog with her. Pierre just loves her. We wouldn't use anybody else. She has been booked up and we have waited for her because she is the best. Highly recommend. 5+ Stars!

We first found Country Critters because of a lost dog they found that needed a home. We were so impressed by their caring for this little dog that we adopted him and started bringing all five of our dogs to them for grooming. They allowed us to stay there and watch how they treated our fur babies and they are the only place where I feel comfortable taking my babies. They smell so good and look great when they are groomed. All of my babies love going there and I would be completely comfortable boarding them if the need arises. They are the best!

I give a detail cut...I build a trust with the pet...my services speak aloud for themselves ...I've been grooming for 16 years successful experience.


I am a local dog trainer. I have been training dogs for about three years now. I use a reward method to train. I also do dog sitting.


I groom dogs to clients' specifications. I will also walk and groom dogs as well. I have 10 years of dog grooming experience. I love working with dogs.


I mainly walk the dogs after being kept in the house. I sit with them, so they won't be lonely, and I'll play with them. All dogs need love and attention.


I'm a dog groomer because I love animals, and I know how important it is to keep them cleaned and their hair healthy. I take pride in my work. Also, I offer extra cleaning services.

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.
