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.

If you want to truly relax on your vacation and not worry about your animals while you're away, hire these 3 people. They are highly organized and caring dog sitters. They treated our dog like he was part of their family and kept me at ease while I was away with updates and photos. The long: Our dog, Duke, has been asked to leave more than one boarding facility for being "difficult." He has separation anxiety, trouble with thunderstorms and loud noises and strangers. These sitters were the first to actually listen to me regarding his high-maintenance needs and instead of backing out, they completely embraced him for who he is: a lovable pup! They had me fill out a very thorough questionnaire before he stayed with them. It covered everything! They used that info and what I told her about his anxieties and came up with a plan to keep him happy, comfortable and feeling secure. While I was away they emailed me updates and photos, so that I could truly relax and enjoy my trip, knowing that my dog was in excellent care. I can't say enough great things about our experience with them. They truly opened up their hearts and home for our dog and made him part of the family while we were away.

Kitty is a really sweet, caring stay at home dog boarder. I have a scard dog and she loved the small chihuahuas at her place. I would return.

Holly has been caring for our pets for many years. We travel extensively and found that kenneling our dogs was a traumatic experience for both our pets and ourselves. Taking them out of their normal environment and routine was not an option. We felt lucky to have found Holly, she was able to accommodate our schedules and our pets loved spending time with her. We would recommend Holly and her services to any pet owner. She is caring and generous with her time as well as extremely trustworthy.

Your Best Friend's Friend (YBFF) has been absolutely wonderful for all five of our pets for many years. We first met them when we got our first dog, a puppy mill rescue dog who doesn't like people other than us. They quickly found the perfect person that he likes, and have carefully found others for backup who can work with a dog who is partially blind in one eye and afraid of people. We get notes from all their visits to know what our pets were up to that day. We know who did what on the walk and how the cats were doing. The care and love they give our pets is so amazing and reassuring. I can't imagine working with anyone else to take care of our pets, particularly our special needs dog who is so happy to see them! Our YPFF dog walkers are family members who love our pets as much as we do, and make it possible for two people with busy careers to have dogs and cats who are happy and so well-cared-for 24/7.

She is a kind, caring individual. While caring for my dog while I was out of town, she ensured the well being and comfort of my girl. She is also a fabulous cook as I have her fix a few meals a week for me.

Aislyn is awesome! She walks my dog, Rider everyday. It helps me from coming home during my lunch break, and gives Rider the exercise he needs. It's a win win.

About

I love dogs and helping people. These are my top two favorite things in a part-time hobby. Sign me up! I've never lived in a house without at least three dogs, sometimes as high as six or seven. So, there isn't much that I can't handle. Why I want to sit? I work for myself from home. I have loads of time on my hands, and I already take care of my dogs. They love it when we have company! Whether I come to your place or they come to mine, your dogs will get the best of care and attention. I may even do some training with them!

About

I just graduated from college, and I am looking for a job! I love pets, but I know that now is not a good time for me to get one of my own. That is why I want to hang out with and care for your pets! I am very responsible and flexible with hours, so I will really be up for whatever you need me to do.

About

Hello, my name is Kate, and I just moved to Denver, Colorado, from Livonia, Michigan! I love being outdoors and love being around animals! My hobbies include hiking, biking, reading, gardening, and painting. When living in Michigan, my parents had a Goldendoodle named Murphy who was packed full of energy. Our nightly ritual was going to the park and playing Frisbee for hours until we were both worn out! I am a very reliable person with a great work ethic! I am friendly and would love to work with you and your pups!

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.
