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.

I have 2 very big pit bulls they each weight over 110 lbs. Rod is able to handle both of them at the same time. He walks my girl dog And boy dog at the same time! I never thought that would even be possible. He has amazing rates as well. He cleans up the area too which is amazing for me because I am always on the road. My dogs love him. My dog walker before him could not walk my boy dog. He just wouldn't leave the drive way. He actually leaves the drive way with Rod. I'm so thankful I found him. He also checks in with me everytime he walks them. Thank you so much !

I’m very great full to have Stephanee, one of the dog walkers!! She comes every day and takes my two pups on a walk when it’s nice or just plays ball or tug when it’s to hot. They love her and stand by the door waiting for her everyday!!! We get updates everyday including what they did, if they went potty, and cute pictures too. They are always so happy in the pic!! Wish I started this sooner!!

I have 2 really huge pit bulls and EVERY body is scared of them. I go out of town a lot and then I found Brian. He met my dogs and he actually got to walk them! I'm surprised that this is happening because everyone is so scared of how huge and "aggressive" they look. He is amazing with them. He came on time and also cleans up their area. I'm very excited and I couldn't wait to write this review.
