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!!

I just want to say how great the staff is at Superstar Pet Sitting and Dog Walking! Barbie was my cat sitter and she did an excellent job with Brewster. I always received my pictures of him on time and he always seemed to be happy. I was exceptionally glad that when I got home the litter box was completely clean and his water bowl looked like it had fresh new water :) *its the little things* Thanks Barbie and staff!!

I was in search of a trainer for my standard Schnauzer who would pull and lunge at other dogs when walking. I could not control the dog due to my tennis elbow. After talking to more than 7 trainers I came across Steve. He went into detail on the phone on how we would address the problem. I had hope! In just two visits I was able to learn what I was doing wrong and correct it. I no longer get frustrated and my dog enjoys walking. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome and most of all no more sore arm. Yeah.

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!

I was visiting LA for a friend's kid's 1st birthday down in Playa Vista, and brought my pup along with me for a little getaway in LA. The venue did not allow dogs, so I went with Doggie Bliss for a 3 hour walk. It also worked out to tire the pup out, since I had a 6 hour drive back to Phoenix after the party. Marc showed up right on time, we had a discussion regarding my pup's behavior and tendencies, especially his high prey drive not allowing for any off leash time. While Marc was out, he sent me updates via text, and also to ask if he could take the little guy down to the beach. He came back right as the party ended, and the pup was all tired out just in time for the car ride home. The original correspondence was via their website, and emails back and forth to set up an online account for billing, and overall the process was very convenient. I was expecting a rate on their wbe site of 33/hour, but they ended up giving me a special rate of 75 for 3 hours. If I end up back in LA, I would definitely call Doggie Bliss if I ever had to be away from my pup. My brief meeting with Marc was more than enough to assure me that these people absolutely love dogs and what they do, and although I was extremely nervous about using an out of town dog walking service, they did an absolute amazing job. Highly recommended if you are in the Santa Monica/West LA area.

Lisa has been walking and pet sitting my two dogs and two cats for five years. Her walks are always longer than the half hour I pay her for and my dogs come home well exercised and stimulated. When I'm not home, I trust her implicitly with my keys to my house and don't worry about a thing while I'm gone. When I'm away on vacation, the cats and dogs are so well taken care of, I couldn't ask for better. They are happy and content, even groomed. She texts me updates after each walk whether I'm home or away, will make runs to the pet store for me if I need it, will take the animals to the Vet or the park. Anything to do with pet care, she will do. I recommend Lisa's services for dog walking and all other pet care needs highly.

Working with Alison Lee was a wonderful experience. I have two lrage puppies and one senior dog. She was patient and understood the situation with the dogs. She was never judgmental when I did not practice as I should have. The techniques are invaluable as I continue to work with the puppies. The puppies loved her! She was consistent and firm, but never mean. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to train a dog utlizing positive training techniques.

Danielle is very friendly, responsible, and caring with our three energetic dogs. They get so excited to see her when she comes over for walks, probably because she treats them like they are her own. I like that she walks them each individually. We feel really fortunate to have someone we trust help us with our furry babies when life gets busy. I give L.A. Doggers Dog Walking Service a million stars!

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.

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.
