"I'm a long time pet sitter and dog walker with many clients, who have been with me for years. My job is to keep the dog or cat's routine the same, so there is no stress for either the pet or the client and everyone is happy. I always give my clients more than the clients expect because their pets are worth it. I get so much joy, laughter, and relaxation from dogs and cats. That the choice is simple: dogs and cats make me happy, so this is how I want to spend my life. MY DAYTIME DOG WALKING & PETSITTING RATES ARE FOR 2 DOGS or 2 CATS: 15 minutes is $16 30 minutes is $21 45 minutes is $28 60 minutes is $35 WEEKLY CLIENT DISCOUNTS: NEW! Weekly 30 or 60 min M-F bookings get one walk FREE to start. Weekly M-F 30 minute bookings get 10% off. Weekly M-F 60 min bookings get 10% off. Clients, who book 30 or 60 minute visits, twice a day M-F, get a 10% discount. MAJOR HOLIDAYS are $10/day. BUT CHRISTMAS WEEK, THANKSGIVING WEEK and NEW YEAR'S WEEK are an extra $10/day. 12 HR OVERNIGHT PETSITTING......$70 (3 dogwalks) Includes 2 evening walks and 1 morning walk. I sleep over and care for your dog. If your dog is used to sleeping in your bed, I'll be happy to bunk with him. : D This includes 3 walks, which depends on the health and needs of your dog as well as weather conditions. Overnights include feeding, clean up, play, taking in mail, watering plants, changing lights on/off, taking out garbage, and unlocking/relocking gate for the gardener. I generally do not do overnights for just cats, but if that's what you want for your cats, I'm happy to be of service. VACATION OVERNIGHT PETSITTING Your home becomes my home base. This means I spend more hours looking after your pet than you could afford to pay. Includes 12 hr Overnight rate (3 walks)....$70! And $21 dollars for the rest of the day because I may have other dogwalking clients. *Vacations that are a week or longer get a 10% discount. That's roughly $91 per 24 hours. But let's say I'm away for 4 hours dog walking other client's dogs, I'm still petsitting your dogs for 20 hours and that works out to $4.55/hr. It's a great deal. Your place is looked after, your pets get the best personal care and playtime, and you get frequent updates of photos, videos of your pet(s). Most of my clients hire me for vacation petsitting. I sleepover at their house or apartment. I bring my own food and I look after their pets. The pets get a lot of attention because I sit where they sit and I pet them for hours, while I watch TV. I play with them. I walk them. I brush them. I give them treats. They sleep in the bed with me if they're used to sleeping in the bed with my client. My clients love me because they know that weekly clients and vacationing clients get a very favorable discount. We can always work something out to keep everyone happy. PHOTOS My clients love me because I take amazing pictures of their pets and the emailed/texted photos are an extra assurance that I am there looking after their loved ones. I've even done Facetime with my clients, so they can see their furry loved ones. I'M THERE FOR MY CLIENTS If they have a 16-year-old and 35 lb. beagle with cancer and incontinence who needs to be carried outside several times a day/night. Or if they have a 5 a.m. flight and they need me at their house at 4 A.M Or if my clients forgot their medication or passports and they need me to FedEX it stat. My clients trust me to get the job done because I operate on the golden rule and the boys scout rule of leave no trace; this means I treat your pets and your home the way I would want my pets and my home treated. I clean before I leave. I don't clean the whole house, but the areas that I used or the pets messed up get wiped down or vacuumed. My only Achilles Heel is that I can't make a bed to save my life. I love taking cat and dog photos. I really like turning on my creative side and using my 20+ years of Photoshop to turn my photos into something special clients would like to own. It's a different kind of memento. And now most of my clients have given me permission to use my photos of their pets in my online store at: [https:]//inktale.com/OverandOutOXOX You can see a ton of my photos on my instagram feed: @overandoutpetsitting Since I work by myself, I'm hoping the extra income from this store will help pay some bills, if I get laid up by an accident or my breast cancer returns. I don't expect to make a lot of money since I think my only buyers will be my clients, who want a unique memento of their favorite family member. ; D"

"I have provided high quality pet services for a number of years now. I work well with owners of the dogs/cats/birds/fish meeting their needs. Whether it be dog sitting, or dog walking , cat sitting, providing companionship & vet appointments when needed and maintaining Heath issues as needed. I pet sit which is always a great experience. Getting to know each dog, cat, bird and their individual personalities gives me great pleasure. I also walk dogs and the dog walks I have at this time each one shows their excitement in their own personal way. I do chuckle. I presently work for a no-kill cat shelter. I clean, scoop, medicate when necessary and give a report everyday to the executive director. I have been involved with animals for some time now and involved with a non profit no kill cat shelter for approx 10 years. It's very enjoyable and fulfilling. I took care of the dogs boarded at VCA animal hospital and also in treatment area. Unfortunately they are only open 6 days a week now which deleted my position there. I take pride in taking care of any health issues that arise by notifying the correct person, by medicating the animals as well. I really love my furry friends. I take great pride in caring for animals and also being an advocate for animals. I take great pride in making the animals comfortable and loved. I will take snapshots of the pets and check in daily with the owners so they are totally in the loop while they are away."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a dog groomer?

A dog groomer is a service professional who provides dog grooming and basic hygiene care for your dog. Dog groomers are typically animal lovers who are competent and comfortable working with a wide range of dog breeds and temperaments. Dog groomers are knowledgeable about the care needs for different kinds of dog coats. A poodle will have different haircut needs than a shih tzu, for example, so it pays to have a trained pro provide the proper cut. Good dog groomers know how to safely clean your dog’s teeth, bathe your dog, and cut their nails without going too short. They understand how to trim the hair from around your dog’s face, express anal glands, and clean your dog’s ears. Many people who choose dog grooming as a profession also pursue other dog services such as attending veterinary school, running a doggy day care center, working as a professional dog walker, and more.

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?

What is included in a dog grooming?

Dog grooming is so much more than giving your dog a bath. Dog grooming is a broad term that covers all aspects of canine cleanliness and hygiene. The services included in dog grooming will vary based on your needs and what you choose to pay. Unless they are rolling in cowpies or playing in mud puddles, most dogs are okay getting a shampoo bath only as needed. You’ll know when they need it if they smell bad or are bringing dirt into the house. Some dogs, like shepherds and shih tzus, have thick coats that can get matted and tangled without regular care. Pro dog groomers can deftly blow dry a dog’s hair after a bath so that it is shiny and smooth. Dog grooming can include brushing that detangles dog hair and also thins the undercoat to minimize shedding.

Dog grooming also includes hygiene services such as toothbrushing and ear cleaning. Clean teeth are important to the health of your dog, and the pros have the patience and proper technique to get it done. Regular dog grooming can stave off tear stains, those reddish stains below your dog’s eyes. Anal gland expression is something not many people want to do on their own, even if they love their dog. A dog groomer can safely and efficiently release any blocked anal gland fluid. Other dog grooming services include nail trimming and clipping. Nationally, dog grooming prices range from $60 to $80. Most dog groomers offer discounts to customers who purchase monthly packages or bundle multiple grooming services at one time.

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. 

How much does it cost to get a dog’s nails trimmed?

Dog grooming prices for nail trims can vary based on the the size and temperament of your dog, where the nail trimming takes place, and whether you bundle the trim with other grooming services. The average cost to get your dog’s nails trimmed usually ranges from approximately $10 to $25. Nationally, the average for dog grooming prices is $60-$80, which usually encompasses not only nail trimming but also bathing, haircuts and other services.

The cost to trim a dog’s nails can vary based on whether the dog is at a doggy day care and has the service as an add-on, whether you bring your dog to a groomer’s business, or whether you have a mobile groomer provide nail trimming at your home. Nail trimming costs less than nail grinding, which usually is done with a Dremel or similar tool. Nail trimming should be a regular part of of your dog’s care, as overgrown nails can be painful and cause problems.
