I have one dog and 4 cats. Elizabeth came in every day for almost 3 weeks. All were taken care of, litter boxes cleaned, etc. etc. One cat needs meds and she did that a well. I am very pleased and would use them again.Very reliable.

Working with Moksha has been great! He was available for a last minute dog-walking booking and was ver accommodating. Also, I knew I would like a picture or video, but didn't realize it would completely make my day! Thank you!

Chriss has been great! I get daily texts about how my dog did during the walk and he always lets me know if anything was abnormal. I definitely recommend Chriss as a dog walker as he has been nothing but awesome since he started walking my dog.

Ann walked my son's dog Otis for a couple of days and did a good job. My son has had a friend move in that will be helping with the dog walking so Ann wasn't needed any longer. Ann seemed very nice and seemed to genuinely like Otis, she was very sweet to Otis.

My dog LOVES walks with Michelle. I love Michelle's energy, flexibility, and reliability. I'm glad that I can text her last minute when something comes up and I know she'll take care of my sweet girl. After Michelle finishes walking our dog, I get an update via text to let me know how the walk went. She's a great dog-walker!

Michelle performed pet sitting for my cat for years while I was frequently traveling for work. She was easily accessible through text messaging and email and was frequently available to watch my cat on short notice. She is extremely reliable and trustworthy. Would highly recommend her!

I've used VIPet Sitter services for years! After my first kitties went to heaven, then with a Bernese Mtn Dog, and again with more kitties. We've literally had years in between sits and I was so thrilled to find her business alive and thriving. I highly recommend Cindy and all her fantastic crew of 'nannies.' !!!

My dog walker with Dogs Colorado is Jeff. My dog is highly reactive, and Jeff worked with my trainer and me to get her to be comfortable with him. She loves him now! He walks her once a week, but we're building to twice. Jeff has also introduced my dog to some of his other dogs, to help her with socialization. I love it that she gets to jog with Jeff and the other dogs! It's all going very well.

I have known Sue Martin for over 14 years. She has watched our two dogs on several occasions, and Sue has always done an excellent job. She is hardworking, conscientious, has a positive attitude, and a great sense of humor. She loves animals and treats them as her own. I wish we still lived in Colorado so that we could hire her to watch our dogs again!

Megan of Black Dog Pet Services is an absolute life saver. She comes to our home 3 times a day and takes wonderful care of our new puppy, always updating us via text message regarding her visits. Megan also helps us out with small household chores. The truth is we couldn't do it without her and trust her implicitly. She is incredibly professional, thorough, accomodating, and responsible. You couldn't ask for a better dog sitter/walker!

I couldn't be happier that I found Brian Hibbard and Altitude Pet. He is absolutely FANTASTIC and my two golden retrievers love him. He goes above and beyond and I feel so good about my decision to hire him and entrust my pups to him. I was so impressed, when he came over to meet the boys, we spent an hour going over a comprehensive questionnaire so that he knows all he needs to about my pups. He's a wonderful guy and runs an awesome business. 5 STAR.

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.
