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. 

Reviews for Denver dog walkers

I absolutely feel so relieved to have found this company. I was a stress ball just thinking about a stranger taking my 90 lb dobe for a walk. After meeting Kevin my puptender and seeing my dogs response to him all my fears were allayed. Saylor, my dog just loves Kevin. I get pics after each walk with a detailed bio of how the walk went. Kevin is aware of all my dogs weaknesses and works with him on each walk to help him become a more confident dog. Say, my dog is now able to go on pack walks and he loves them! Give Dogs Colorado a try! You won’t regret!

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.

Awesome service, super friendly and trustworthy. Sends videos and photos of dog being walked. Affordable and insured. Moksha has been doing this for 10 years and treats your dog as if she were his own.

I had originally found Dogs Colorado for dog walks while at work, but I have now used them for poop pickup a couple of times. They were very prompt in responding and came on short notice-same day! They did a great job, too.

Leslie has been a great dog walker for our two dogs, Turtle and Duncan. They love going on walks with her, and we appreciate how detail oriented and thorough Leslie is in all facets of her work. We highly recommend At Your Bark and Call.

Jennifer walks our dog, Sadie a few times a week. Sadie loves for her to come and spend time with her while we are at work. She sends a text and let's me know how the walk went for the day and sometimes sends a photo. Jennifer is great with animals.

I have just recently acquired walking services for my dog. Brandi is honest, kind, reliable and my dog really seems to enjoy her company and compassion. Adorable Dog's rates are straight forward, competitive and backed with plenty of reviews. Some businesses do this line of work merely for just the business aspect. Brandi is a true animal lover and respects what the owners would wish and do when with their pets. -James , Denver, CO

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!

We hired Amber to do our house cleaning and dog walking. She was very reliable, coming every two weeks and making alternative plans if there was ever a conflict, which there was rarely. She is a sweet women with a lovely disposition. Also, Amber always asked for communication to make sure we were all in the same page with my husband and I both appreciated.
