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.

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!

Sue has reinforced Sadie's training. It is a relief to know the two of them are bonded. Sadie gets a great walk and is learning to walk loose leash, sit...with Sue's work I see Sadie achieving her service dog certification.

Julie was there to take care of our lab while we were at work. She would come over and let him out of his kennel and play with him, and feed him, and she also played with our other dog. My dog Ryder loved seeing her everyday!! It definately put our minds at ease knowing we could put our trust in her to care of our dog, they are like our kids!! Thanks Julie!

Johanna is great! She is so professional, we had a very in depth meet and greet and my dogs instantly fell in love with her. Her passion for animals is beyond words. You definitely want her to walk your dogs or care for your animals. She takes pictures, video and sent a map that tracks the entire walk. I'm so happy I found her!

Micaela's Pet Training

Verified review

Micaela came to our house to work with our two dogs, both about 2 1/2 years old and in need of some basic obedience and leash training. She had a great way with the dogs, was very observant of their behavior and temperaments, and was patient with both them and me! That last part was important because some of the training techniques do not seem intuitive to me. Additionally, Micaela followed up with an email that reviewed what we had done and included specific instructions about how we should work with the dogs. It's only been one session, but I was very pleased.


We stand out because we are doing it for the love of animals and to teach responsibility to the next generation.


I am an experienced dog walker/pet sitter. I am willing to come to you or, if you feel more comfortable, you may come to me. My rate per dog is $15 per hour for walking and $10 per hour for pet sitting. I can do overnight stays as well for $75 a day.


I am an experienced animal sitter/walker. I have eight years of animal nurse experience. I can also give medications if needed. I will drive to your home. I believe fur babies do best in their own home. I have great references that are available upon request.


My services include dog walking, animal companionship, pet sitting, feeding and bathing and grooming. My bond with animals make my business great!


My name is Jessica. I love animals. I get along great with dogs, cats, birds, etc., and they like me too. I love walking them and letting them get their energy out. I am 18 years old, and I am very responsible.


I love all kinds of dogs, and I enjoy spending time with them. I like to go on long walks and enjoy having a companion to go with me.


I have an upbeat and happy feet going for a walk. I will walk your dog around the path at a park, up the hill and around the corner. Your dog will do walking and just a wagging.

I stand out from the others because when I have to leave someone to watch my pets I want them to be safe and happy.


I do most jobs, including pets from large to small. Whether it is a mid-day or alternating day walks to full vacations, I have the experience, including a veterinary medicine degree and do injections and recovery. I work with keeping your training in place and can add to what you are already doing. I work well with seniors and behavioral needs. I am an animal lover, and your pets' needs come first before anything else. Please check my website to read about my skills, education and praises from clients.


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.


I'm looking for a job. I do dog walking and pet sitting, for several neighbors before. I love animals and I am looking forward to, work with them in the future.

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.
