I had a private training session with Dee Cee, and it was worth every penny! She has a real passion for training dogs and she is very respectful, clear, thorough and effective. My dog Gubi has behavior problems and Dee Cee came up with methods that immediately worked! She also gave me great tools and tips to use in the future. I was so impressed with Gubi's progress in just a day and I feel like I know my dog much better now. Thank you Dee Cee!!

In all my years of owning dogs I have never met a better trainer than Robert Weatherwax. His approach to my dog was so friendly and kind that they bonded in just a few minutes. Sadie (our dog) was VERY receptive to learning how to sit,stay and walking properly when given the correct commands. Robert uses a chain collar and small treats to get her to do the correct things. I was against the collar until I saw he used it gently and Sadie wasn't afraid. Now she loves our walks with the collar and actually gets in her spot (another command) so I can put it on her. Don't get me wrong. SADIE still needs work on MY part but Robert has been nice enough to have some refresher classes mainly for me. I was lucky that a friend recommended Robert to me.

Could not have been more pleased with Becky and Charlotte! We met prior to going out of town and they were extremely thorough. I felt comfortable leaving for vacation knowing our dog Hermie was in good hands. Constant updates allowed to us to enjoy our time away. Thank you!

I have one cat and two dogs, and they are my life. I truly wish I could spend all the time in the world with them, but I have a grueling work schedule and can't walk my little guys on weekdays. Superstar walks my dogs Mon-Fri and are so flexible with my fluctuating schedule. I'm so glad my friend referred me to Superstar! They really treat my furry little babes like the stars they are LOL. Barbie is wonderful, I have personally talked to her on several occasions and she is very sweet and understanding about my pets' needs. Specifically my cat Elvis who has issues trusting new people. Sometimes it's hard to find a dog walking company that is also great with cats, but they are experts with both. Since it went so well with feeding my cat and walking my dogs, I have also hired them for a few overnight stays while I am out of town. I know my pets really appreciate not being left alone for hours on end. There has never been a problem with that either, I know I could trust them. So, I highly reccomend Super Star and feel comfortable referring them to my closest friends and family.

Angela did a wonderful job looking after our fur kids! We have one dog, two kitties and a foster kitty that she watched over. She walked our dog twice a day, played with the kitties and even brought our mail in! She will send you updates and pictures if you ask her to. I highly recommend her, she did a great job!

Shannon and her team are beyond amazing! I trust them 110% with my fur baby. They have their process down! Online booking? Check! Online billing? Check! Pictures of my dog during his walk? Check! I have some of the best pictures of my dog because of my dog walker, Kat. I am somewhat neurotic and picky about people who are around my dog, especially when I'm not around, and I highly recommend Doggie Bliss. Thank you so much for treating my dog like one of your own!

Lisa has been an absolute blessing for my dog Layla and I. She is very loving and in tune with Layla's spunky personality. She takes her on long walks and hikes, which Layla couldn't enjoy more. I know she is well taken care of while I am away at work. Overall, Lisa came into our lives to walk my dog, but what we received in return is more than I expected. I've noticed that Layla is an even happier, go-lucky dog! Thanks Lisa for treating Layla as your own!

Danielle is amazing with my Little yorkie snickers. He is a senior dog, about to be 12 and is going blind. She is extremely patient and kind with him, he is newly blind so walking him can sometimes be a little intimidating because he doesn’t move as fast, Danielle handles it like a champ! She has also been a savior when I’m working long days and I need someone to stop by and feed snickers, walk him, give him some love and some cuddles. Not to mention her prices are very reasonable! I highly recommend Danielle for all your dog walking and boarding needs! She is the sweetest!!

Robin is the dog walker everyone dreamed of having. Most importantly beyond the simple walk, she cares. Each day, Robin goes above and beyond with documenting walks with photos and updates – which is extremely helpful for working professionals who spend most of their day in the office and want to know the babies at home are not only safe, but happy. Outside of her amazing responsiveness during walks, Robin is our first call for any questions regarding the puppies behavior trends – she has easily become their family. It is important for us to have someone we can trust, so it’s been great to have her over the last several months. Not to mention, when our puppies ran away, she was the first to continuously check in and aid with resources to track them back down. Recommend is an understatement!

Jessie is knowledgeable and reliable about walking dogs. She has some training experience. My dog is very leash reactive and I'm not totally comfortable letting him go with someone without my supervision. Jessie was willing to let me do that. For now, I've postponed dog walking, but not because of Walk'n Wag'n. They seem to be a reliable and professional company. I would recommend them.

At the last minute I required a sitter for my special needs senior dog Xena. Alicia came over and immediately I knew we had found the right fit. Xena requires lots of potty breaks with the use of a sling which can often scare people and Alicia was happy to take on the challenge. I would recommend her to anyone!

Arlene was easy to communicate with, flexible, and arrived promptly. She was very respectful of our dogs anxiety and waited until the dog was ready to pet her or show affection. She is thorough and made sure our girl had everything she needed at all times. She made sure to give her as many walks as our dog wanted/needed and fed her at our requested times. She also administered medication. It is clear that Arlene loves and respects animals! Highly recommended.

George has taken care of our 2 dogs several times and we are so happy and thankful. We always know our dogs are in such good care with George. He spends time with the dogs and doesn't just run in to let them out or feed them and then leave. We very highly recommend George to care for your beloved pets!

Patricia Gleason has been my dog walker for about four years and was recommended to me by a neighbor. Patricia is like the neighborhood dog caretaker: she knows every dog on the block and they all love her! Patricia truly loves and cares about my dog. She always sends me text updates whenever she cares for him which I greatly appreciate, it's always comforting to get updates about your furry friends. She is great at reading dogs and knowing what care they will need: are they aggressive? Do they pull? Should they be kept away from other dogs or people? Patricia always knows what to do. Patricia is very cautious and responsible and I would recommend her to anyone who needs a dog walker (and I have recommended her to friends in the past). She has walked my dog daily while I'm at work and has also cared for him while I was on vacation. My dog Louie LOVES Patricia and actually smiles when he sees her. She's a true animal lover.

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.
