    If you are looking for someone to take care of your dog while you're out of town, or trying to get your dog to simply shake hands I am willing to provide that service for you. I can also train your dog into becoming less afraid of other dogs. For instance, my dog used to be afraid if other bigger dogs. With more exposure from the dogs he's afraid of, he is not afraid anymore. He doesn't growl or cower under me anymore. If you have any other questions please feel free to let me know.

    Simply because I'm older and a father. With age comes patience, I have had many dogs, as well as cats over the years so I understand the need to take care of pets and what they require. I simply enjoy getting outside, along with a pet to walk, hike or just meander.

    About

    I am training dogs and teaching people: classes, private lessons, behavior modification and boarding. I am professional and certified. Dogs who have a solid obedience education are a joy to live with. They respond well to household routines, have good manners in the presence of people and other dogs, and they fully enjoy the company of the owner who took the time to provide training, provide intellectual stimulation, and provide a high quality life. Your dog can be a part of your everyday life! Every animal has a unique personality and disposition. I can offer you successful training with a wide variety of experience and calm assertive energy! Training dogs and teaching people has been a lifestyle for me. Teaching them to live together in harmony is the greatest reward.

    I walk your dogs for a reasonable price that can be negotiated. Friendly dogs only,please. Bring your dog to me and I will walk around the public park with the dog, so it gets well-exercised.

    About

    For 3 years that I was an in-home caregiver, I cooked and cleaned for my clients so I am aware that people like things done differently. I make it a point to make sure to do what you need done the way you would like it done. I am also great with animals so if you need a dog walker, I am also able to do that as well as feed and bathe. If you need meals prepared, I'm a great cook also.

    About

    I offer obedience, correct behavior problems for older dogs. I train older dogs to become CGC, CGCA, and start service dog obedience. This is a one-on-one dog training; I only train one dog at a time.

    About

    I will make you feel comfortable leaving your pets at home again. I will love them like they were mine.

    About

    No two dogs are the same so no training program should ever be same. I like to create a program that will best be understood by the clients dog. This will pave the way for clear communication and a better overall relationship between the dog and it's owner. As for my experience, I have spent thousands of hours training high drive dogs in obedience and protection work. This experience has made my skills much more effective when it comes to lower drive pets. The most exciting aspect of dog training is that you, the human owner, will need to dig deep and learn more about yourself. Most of the issues we see in dogs originates from the human owners own habits, life style, or training methods and they aren't even aware of it. Once you become aware of your own attitude, mindset, habits, you can start to modify them and in turn it will directly affect your dogs behavior. So dog training is in essence also about training yourself.

    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. 

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
