Excellent. Great listening skills, very perceptive with a great knowledge about canine behavior — in particular— rescue dogs. She gave some sound advice on acclamating a new rescue dog with our dog Trixie that has been with us for 8 years (she is 10). Her helpful techniques and insights have been paying off.

Just had first cleaning & have to say overall Priscilla did a wonderful job. She's a pleasure to work with, very professional, accommodating & nonintrusive. Would highly recommend her & will be using her on a regular basis. If you're thinking of hiring someone, you will not be disappointed! And to make your life even easier, she also walks dogs if needed?

My dog loves Robin! And so do I. Always on time and always staying late! So polite. I was very nervous about starting training with my dog because she is very high-energy and she is already three years old. Robin reassured me that with all of her experience things should go fine and she was right. Taking my dog for a walk has become enjoyable instead of a chore. Huge improvements and such a reasonable price. Thank you Robin!!

I can highly recommend Snaggle Foot Dog Walks and Pet Care. I originally hired Judy and her team to walk my little dog once a week, but as you all know plans change and the need became greater than 1 x a week. Judy was very flexible and was able to walk/feed calie to accommodate the extra days/times. there was one time when I needed someone overnight, Judy took my dog to her home for an over night stay. She was so relaxed and happy coming home. If you need a dog walker/dog sitter I can highly recommend Snaggle Foot. If I had not relocated I would still be using them today.

We got a young rescue dog Yasik, a lab mix with a dominance streak, a year ago. Joyce (Bred for Life) has guided us through a stepwise training method in weekly sessions in our house. Yasik turned gradually from a non-stop holy terror to a responsive member of the household. Amazing, impressive, real results. Joyce not only knows what she is doing but she is graced with solid communicative skills and an outgoig good nature. Thumbs up 100%, recommending strongly.

I learned of Jill on thumbtack and she's only been walking our dogs for a short time. That being said, Jill is lovely, reliable, and very flexible in her schedule. I also spoke to her references who only had great things to say about her. I thrilled to have learned of Jill through your website.

I reached out to Josh for help because my dog would lash out at other dogs when we went for walks, hikes, etc. I was very pleased with his work! He arrived on time, earlier than expected, to really make sure I got the most out of my session. The quality of his work is very professional and you could tell he truly cares about helping you and your dog! He is very knowledgeable in numerous different behavioral issues, which was impressive. He taught me how to take control of my dog and now my dog is doing much better socially. Josh also responded to my emails in a timely mannner when I would have quick questions. I would highly recommend this service!!

My husband and I were in need of a daily dog walker but didn't know where to turn in the area. Prima Donna was fantastic - they came to our home at a time convenient for us, spent the time to make us and our shy dog comfortable and have been a great relief for us since knowing that our pet is getting the break she needs during the day. Couldn't be happier!

The Crate Escape family has been a godsend! I use them to walk my dog while at work but they are flexible, on time and best of all love my dog. Never thought I would be the person to leave dog at home and have someone dog-sit, but def. gonna start!

Gus has just started walking my dog this week during the day while I'm at work. My dog is shy and within a couple of sessions, he warmed up to Gus and now he wags his tail when he hears him at the door. I am very pleased with Gus' service.

It is my pleasure to share the knowledge that I have referring to Latoya Lawrence and her love for dogs. I have seen Latoya interact with many different animals but her passion for their welfare is rare and special. I owned a Dog that I no longer had the time to care for alone due to my new job. I told Latoya about my newfound dilemma and she stepped in immediately to help. Once I saw how well my dog adapted to her I was extremely comfortable and confident with her help. Latoya helped me until I could manage my new schedule and I cannot thank her enough, even after I had everything under control she still visited and helped as much as she could. I highly recommend Latoya’s services for Dog walking and special care due to all of her wonderful capabilities.

Nelly is great when comes to help out with my dog Duke. She is always on time and Duke responds well to her presence. I always feel comfortable leaving Duke in her very capable hands. Plus, she sends me a photo of my boy and a text message as to how he is currently doing. I highly recommend Nelly as a sitter for your pets.

Lisa cared for our dog, Fargo, for over 7 years. Fargo recently passed, but Lisa was there through the whole process and beyond. The last few months were difficult; Lisa was so supportive. And we are still and touch, hopefully will have another dog next year. Lisa cared for our dog and was always available when we needed extra walks and weekend getaways. I highly recommend her as a pet was a member of the family.

Lorraine was lovely. Prompt, responsible, and gentle. Our dog took to her immediately. She walked our dog three times a day for five days while we were taking our son to college. We left our dog with my mother who, for health reasons, was unable to walk the dog. My mother raved about how wonderful Lorraine was each time I spoke with her.

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.
