Dani is the only person I would trust with my dog when we go out of town. She truly treats each dog as if they were her own. My dog always seems happy and well cared for when we pick him up. Her rates are very reasonable, she is flexible with pick up and drop-off times, and responds quickly to texts and calls. As a dog breeder and handler, Dani is obviously an expert in caring for and loving dogs, and I trust her absolutely with my precious baby. I know he will be safe and loved with her and her family and I never worry when he is with her.

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.

Brandon has become my "go-to" house and dog sitter. When we leave town for an extended period of time, Brandon moves in and becomes our Tibetan Terrier's uncle. He is with her 24/7, taking her to the dog park, brushing her daily, providing everything she needs. When home and too busy to take her to the dog park, he text Brandon and he picks her up for her daily romp with friends, returning her happy and tired. You can tell immediately that Brandon loves dogs of all breeds, sizes and temperaments...what is equally important, they like him and enjoy their outings with him.

Karin is the best! She was so patient and thoughtful about getting my dog comfortable with the hikes. We thought it would never be possible and in just a week, Gwen was going on hikes happily. She comes home so tired and happy. We are thrilled!

I am an owner of an extremely protective 160 pound St. Bernard. She has extreme issues with social interactions with people if they are not family. I was so fortunate to find Coune's Canines. Stacy was extremely brave on that first visit. My dog lunges at her many times and barked non stop. She came back! And we tried her entering the house with my dog in her cage. This went on for many weeks but finally a breakthrough my dog allowed her to pet her through the cage. Now Stacy is easily her good friend! She can walk her around the property play inside with her and when I tell my dog she is coming to visit she is very excited. I never thought I would find anyone that would work with my temperamental girl. But I would highly recommend Coyne's Canines. They care about your pet and treat them like their own.

This weekend Carolynne took care of our cat for the first time. When we returned everything was great! He was not stressed at all! BP was a happy cat! She played with him, held him, feed and cleaned up after him. I will definitely use Wagging Tail Pet Sitting again!!

About

I love taking care of your pets with a positive manner and attitude with full respect to the pet and owner. I have a 2-year-old daughter and a new puppy. I'm willing to do anything the owner needs done for the pet, including washing, walking, feeding, and any other service needed for the pet. It's not just dogs, cats are accepted as well.

About

I love animals, especially dogs. I have lots of energy and love running. I have an open space behind my house, which is great for walking dogs.

About

I walk dogs for playing and exercise. Dogs need to get out and roam around. Hunger, thirst and any special needs are attended to.

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.

I have previous experience walking dogs and taking them to the park. I can do overnight stays (cageless) in my home with your dog. I also offer poop scoop services. I can also make dog treats and a cake for dog's special day.

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.
