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. 

Reviews for Scottsdale dog walkers

I did a google search in need of a dog walker due to having a broken foot. Beth to the rescue! She texted right away wanting to help. She came up the next morning for a meet and greet. My dog Cypress adored her instantly and off they went for a walk. Beth has been coming daily. She is punctual and always lets me know when she is on her way. When I ask my dog Cypress, "Where's Beth?" He perks up and looks all around for her. He knows it's "walk time." Beth is great about "reporting" about their walks as they are walking with cute pictures, video and messages. She is extremely safety conscious which is important living in a more desert area of town. I am so happy to have found her. She takes care of my dog as if he were her own. I would highly recommend Beth from Happy Fur Baby Pet Care!!

I was uncomfortable finding a dog walker that I could trust and whom I felt comfortable handing over the key to my house. I started a new job and was gone all day and needed a good dog walker. Beth has been amazing. She is great with animals and is very trustworthy and consistent. She sends me a text and pic or video every day she walks my dog Cooper. I can tell how happier he is when I get home after work. He loves his daily walks with Beth. If you are feeling nervous like I was, you will be happy with Beth as your dog walker.

She is a great asset to my family. She cares a lot for animals. My dog was diagnosed with liver failure, and has to be fed four times a day. Beth comes over to walk him two to three times a week. My dog Bogey loves it when she comes over. Beth is there for us, even if it is last minute. I can call her an hour before if there is a problem with me getting home in time. We just love her and trust her fully with my baby.

Look no further Brooke is your dog walker. She was always on time. And when she says a hour walk she means it. Our little cutie was always so excited to see her and when he came back he was tried out. We have tried other dog walkers but no one I mean no-one comes close to anyone like Brooke!! I wouldn’t rate her a by stars. Brooke is beyond rating stars! I hope anyone reading this review will give her a chance. You have my word she is outstanding!!!
