My dog Tristan, a standard poodle, is getting elderly and has arthritis with very bad weakness in his back legs so it has gotten to the point that taking him to a groomer is too hard on him and more dangerous of him getting hurt. I am so thankful I found Desiree who does in-home groom visits where Tristan can be comfortable, not have to stand so long and can now even lay down in the comfort of my home and get groomed. Desiree was on time, she took time to let Tristan warm up to her, she was so gentle and has the experience to gently handle my elderly dog, she cleaned up after, she was so friendly and easy to talk to and Tristan looked wonderful afterwards! She even helped put a name to a possible health problem just from hearing Tristan cough so will ask my vet about it. I am so happy to have found Desiree and she has gained a permanent customer.

We hired Dani to walk our dog Max about a month ago and she has been very responsive to our needs, responsible and professional. Most important, she is caring and has Max's needs in mind whenever she walks him.

We left our dog Milly with Emilia for three days. Emilia and her family treated Milly as part of their family. We were thrilled and so happy to find someone so caring and concerned about our dog's welfare. Milly had a great time. And we have arrangements to leave her with Emilia again. We highly recommend her for your pet. She gets a gold star in our book!🐶

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.

Norma with Walking the Dog Pet Services took care of my Jack Russell Terrier for four days while I was on vacation. She did a great job looking after him. She even bathed and groomed him. I will definitely use Walking the Dog Pet Services again.

I have used Melinie as a cat sitter twice so far and plan to continue using her services! She is kind hearted, reliable, and has a wonderful relationship with cats & animals. I'm impressed with her knowledge & experience and feel very safe leaving my cat in her care. I have used her for a weekend as well as for two weeks. For the extended two week visit, my cat actually stayed with Melinie in her home and got the social attention that she needed. She cares for food, litter box, brushing, playtime, medicines, and even house chores such as watering plants and checking mail. She even took the initiative to send me regular updates while I was gone, which is most appreciated! I highly recommend Melinie if you want someone to care for all of your pets needs while you're away. You will definitely be at ease knowing she's caring for your kitty or pet!

Claire has taken care of my dog, Loretta , for over 2 yrs. I travel for work and I always know that my dog will be loved and well-cared for while I’m away. It’s such a relief knowing that Loretta is in such good hands. I highly recommend petbuddies!! Claire truly loves Loretta like her own.

We adore Bailey and our (large) guy Blaze did too! He had health issues that she handled like the pro she is(probably better than we often do)!


I am currently going to school at the University of Arizona and I need a summer job walking dogs. I have had dogs my whole life, young or old, you name it. I will love your dog as if it was my own. Since I am back from school, I will have an open schedule the whole time I am here. I hope I am able to walk your do or doggies soon. My paws are always clean!


My work stands out because of the love I have for animals and the fact that I am very honest and dependable.


Diane and her staff will walk your dog(s) or play and comfort all your family pets. We provide professional in-home daily care of your pooches, purrs and feathers. We are a N.A.P.P.S. member.


Before, I worked at a restaurant. I decided to change because I have been working for 24 years, driving every day at one hour a day. I am looking for short driving. Thank you. I am happy for customers.


I provide walking, sitting and any special care service for dogs. I will travel to your destination. I love animals. I have two dogs of my own!


I will walk your dog. I pet sit most pets. I wash dogs and cats. I have over ten years of experience with all animals. I will also watch reptiles and rodents. I am very reasonable and reliable.


I can watch your animals at your house if you need to do errands. That includes play time, of course, and walks, and I'll feed them. I'll follow what you need done correctly. I'm a teen on independent studies.


I genuinely care about the littles guys and will do the job right no matter what it is.


I spare time for dog walking. I will travel to your home or business, depends upon your choice. Rates depend on time spent with your best friend.

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.
