Pam is great. She always sends pictures and a little update about her visit. Having her walk my puppy makes me feel so much better when I have to leave him alone during the day. Very trustworthy .

Jenny was wonderful with our dogs. Very caring and thoughtful. We received pet updates throughout our trip, which we really enjoyed. She reassured us she arrived and asked the same of us in case she needed to com back. A nice touch. On follow up, she came back and our dogs went over to say hi to her. Dogs always recognize a good dog person!

Angie is absolutely amazing. She has a huge fenced in yard with plenty of room for dogs to play and she has plenty of awesome toys for them to play with! She sent us pictures and video of our dog while he was staying with her and she was in constant contact so we always knew what was going on. She is an A+++ in our book!!

Absolutely amazing experience meeting Coleen. She saved the day when I was forced to find a pet sitter while dealing with housing issues. Coleen is a loving caring person and will probably take care of your pet better than you. I still communicate with her multiple times a week and its been 2 months since I got my pup back. My dog is shy and skittish and I could tell she opened up to this vibrant soul. I've already said it a ton and saying it doesn't even cover how I fully feel but THANK YOU SO MUCH COLEEN!!!

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.
