Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I have been a top dog walking business in Los Angeles for the past 18 years because I offer superior customer service to my human, canine and feline canine clients. My workers and I don't use the word no. If a client requests that we take a trip to Santa Barbara to get her pup his favorite cookies for his tenth birthday, we say absolutely. We don't believe in pack walks, we think their distracting, walking six dogs at a time, sure we make less money but we know our dogs are fully attended to. You won't find us on the phone or listening to music while we are on our walks, it's a distraction - our focus is your best friend and it's our job to get your baby home happy, safe and sound. When we visit your feline friends it goes beyond feeding and cleaning the litter box. Our time is spent playing with and loving up each and every cat. We hear all of the time from our clients that their cats hardly noticed they were gone. And its because in an instant we fall in love with your babies. My day is filled with happiness and joy. I am greeted everyday by my best friends who are so excited to see me the can hardly contain themselves. Then, I get to enjoy watching them happily walk along for a half hour or an hour, I mean have you ever seen a dog who is unhappy on a walk? My clients are fabulous, they are so grateful for the texts I send them and I don't just send them boring mundane texts, they are always entertaining and funny, which brightens their day and they return the favor with a great thank you text. I have nothing to complain about, I am happy all day long because I am around happiness all day long.

The best dog walking service I have ever had. Can’t thank them enough for paying extra attention to our Rottie. I wish wish wish I had met them earlier in his life. I never write reviews but when someone provides standout service like this - then I feel compelled to tell others. Thank you Lisa and Mike. You are the best.

Lisa walks my two dogs a couple times a week and she is the greatest! She is professional, reasonably priced, very flexible (given my busy schedule) and makes me feel comfortable leaving my pups in her care. I really appreciate the recaps she provides via text message after she walks my dogs. I can tell she is falling head over heels for my doggies and I am positive they feel the same way :)

I first found Lisa's service about two years ago on Thumbtack.com and her experience and professionalism was evident upon receiving the initial quotes. First, she stated she was bonded and insured, when I asked others who had quoted me much lower rates if they could show proof, they never replied back. Lisa sent me a follow up message asking what she could do to earn my business. I was impressed. She was really working and taking her job seriously. Lisa got back to me immediately, and when I spoke to her, I could tell she had chosen this profession because of her true love of pets. Right of the bat she asked me all about my dog, but not typical dog walking business questions, but what do I love most about him, I just went on, I became quick friends with Lisa and so did my dog Max. The Speed Walking Dog goes non stop, I go to Lisa for advice on all things "Max" related, training issues, bizarre new behavioral issues, illnesses that come on that used to have me running to the vet - now I call Lisa - she let me know when I joined "her family" any client of hers who calls or texts her on a given day - she personally returns their message or call that day Do yourself a favor, you owe it to your pup to at least look into Lisa's services and give her a call. Trust me, I did all of the research and the price shopping and of all the professional, insured services, The Speed Walking Dog's rates are a deal. As for the research, I've done that for you too - they've been considered a top dog walking service for the past 6 years in a row. Like I said, I found lisa two years ago, it's taken me this long to write her a review, I owe it to her to make it a great one for the day after day, year after year of joy, happiness and hard work she and her team bring to mine and Max's life.

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!

I've been using Lisa's services since last October and couldn't be happier. The dog walker who's assigned to us is incredibly flexible and has never missed a walk. Coming from NYC, the walkers were unreliable at best, but I have nothing but good things to say about Lisa and her team.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I don't have a complicated pricing system. 1-4 walk per half hour is 20.00 the industry norm and 5 walks or more is 18.00. You don't find that discount with many companies

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I will send new customers on Thumbtack a quote, typically the interested customer will e mail, text or call me. I respond immediately answering all questions they may have and provide further info. Once the new customer is interested, I will set up a free in home consultation with one of my walkers, follow up using the customer's desired mode of communication, set up walks as needed.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Animal CPR, Behavior Modification with Exercise
