Dani is the only person I would trust with my dog when we go out of town. She truly treats each dog as if they were her own. My dog always seems happy and well cared for when we pick him up. Her rates are very reasonable, she is flexible with pick up and drop-off times, and responds quickly to texts and calls. As a dog breeder and handler, Dani is obviously an expert in caring for and loving dogs, and I trust her absolutely with my precious baby. I know he will be safe and loved with her and her family and I never worry when he is with her.

Kevin impressed us with his willingness to work around our schedules and to patiently manage our young rescue dog. Our dog reacted to him better than others we interviewed so, in a sense, she chose Kevin. His rates are very competitive too. We hope this is the beginning of a long and successful relationship!

Our senior dog was wandering near our pool and Heather rushed right over to put her back behind the gate so she couldn't fall in. This dog is 17, can't hear and can hardly walk. I was worried about leaving her with a pet sitter but I now see how dedicated Heather is and I am much less worried now.

We recently had the pleasure of contracting with Your Best Friend Pet Services to care for our dog and cat while we visited family in Southern California. The owner, Holly Pardel, was professional and friendly throughout. She scheduled a time at our convenience to come to our house to meet with us and our pets, Roxie and Roscoe. She allowed us to explain exactly the care needed for each animal. Her warmth and attention to detail immediately put both myself and my wife at ease and allowed us to leave for our trip confident that our "kids" were in very good hands. Holly came to our house twice a day. Her visits included feeding, administering medications to our lab, Roxie, as well as taking her for walks around the neighborhood. She sent numerous photos and videos of Roxie at play which again served to reassure us that all was well at home. She also took in the mail for us, and even fed our goldfish, Sunkist! Upon our return home after nearly a week's absence, we found our pets healthy and happy. Her rates are extremely reasonable for the services provided (much less than if we had boarded them). I can recommend without reservation Holly Pardel for all of your dog walking and pet sitting needs. Thanks again Holly!

Lane has been walking my dog everyday for 2 years and pet sitting her about once a month at his home. I am beyond satisfied with the service. He cares about my dog, has helped significantly with training and socialization, and is more than accommodating to my schedule--all while keeping costs low. I can't imagine using anyone else. I especially love the daily Facebook photos and gps tracking of the group walks. I know he genuinely loves dogs and his job. Can't recommend him enough.

Gail has been walking our dog Val for about 6-7 months now and she is fantastic! I can't say enough about Gail's attentiveness, reliability, and great communication. We have had previous dog walkers an Gail is by far the best. She frequently sends pictures or videos of the day's walk, which is really thoughtful. She is also very flexible and works with us and our schedule. We originally had Gail come a few days a week, but we are so happy she now comes Monday through Friday. It's clear she really cares about the dogs she works with and wants to make sure they're happy. If you're looking for a reliable, trustworthy, and thoughtful dog walker, contact Gail!

Kaellyn is an incredible dog walker! She's prompt, professional, and clearly loves all of the animals she works with. My dog absolutely LOVES her and comes homes each day exhausted from ball playing and fun group excursions through some of the best parks and trails the East Bay has to offer. I would highly recommend Kaelynn to anyone looking for a dog walker who will treat your lil' pup with the up most of care.

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.
