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.

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 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)!

    About

    I'm a single female, I have no family and just moved out here from Oklahoma City. I love animals and am very fond of the doggy world as opposed to farm cattle. I love being around our animals as it gives me comfort and revives my soul. Having that companionship makes me forget that I am alone.

    About

    I love dogs and believe they like to be walked. Well, I like walking and decided this is a good fit. I need to supplement my income due to divorce and age (I will find it hard to start work in my normal field). I'm flexible and easy to work with. Dogs are like children to me; they will be hydrated properly and happy to get out.

    Attending one of our training sessions will change you and your dogs life for ever in a positive way.

    About

    I am very outgoing and adventurous person. I love taking my siblings and pets to the park and playing with them. I love kids, and animals. I usually take the dogs that I walk to parks after we go on our walk and let them run around a play for a little bit before I take them home.

    About

    I'm walking your dog. I love to play, walk and train dogs. I have pretty much a free schedule to fit around your busy one.

    About

    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!

    About

    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.

    About

    I am a new dog walker. I started with my brother's dog, walking him around, so that way, he wasn't cooped up in the backyard. So now, I want to walk other dogs that want to go walk around and no longer be sheltered in the backyard.

    About

    I love animals and caring for them, though my life does not permit me to own a pet for long. I walk, feed, and provide some one on one with an animal that is home for long periods of time. I have a second nature with animals and can calm scared and nervous pets with ease. I love all pets, not just the normal cats, dogs and such.

    About

    I walk your dog for 30 minutes or up to 60 minutes depending on the size. No more than one dog unless there are more in one household.

    About

    I am a dog sitter for reasonable price. I also can walk your dog during the morning or the night. Thanks for choosing me.

    About

    I am starting from walking dogs, and I will move on to more difficult jobs. What makes my business great is that I am excited to do this, and I will work hard to value and respect it.

    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.
