Sara has been an Angel, let me just say I don't know what I was going to do and Sara came to our rescue. My Mom is unable to walk her dog since she is not getting around very well. I didn't know what I was going to do until Sara came to our rescue. Thank You Thank You Shilo thanks you

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 .

Clare Owings was just wonderful. Something that I found extremely valuable was that she listened to my situation very well so she gave me pointers and suggestions taking into consideration my lifestyle. My 9-month-old dog has learned so much just after two sessions with her. She is excellent with dogs and, maybe more importantly, with dog owners. She knew how to "handle" my dog and me pretty well. I appreciated her coming not only to my house but also to the dog park and to places where I walk with my dog. I really recommend her!

You look for someone who is going to treat your pet as if they were their own. From the moment she came to first meet our dog you could tell she wanted to make sure that we the owners could relax knowing our pet was in good hands as well as make sure our pet was as comfortable and looked after in our absence. Liz did that and more! Next time we are traveling you can bet we will be using Liz!!! She even sent us photos during her times with Copper while we were away. See attached.

Today was the first time I met Steve in my home. I feel very confident that he has the ability to help teach me to be the best dog owner I can be! I demonstrated my dog running off the porch and down the walkway with me while he was on a leash. I also shared a video of my dog biting at me while trying to get him inside. I'm looking forward to our training classes and am anxious to get started.

Peggy was a great meet and greet, unfortunately, I did not have the pleasure to work with her directly, but seeing how caring she was towards my dog, made my heart melt. She is well trained on how to handle stressful situations involving pets,especially big fearful-aggressive dogs....... I would have hired her in a heart beat, but my rescue dog was not ready to meet new people. He has improved greatly, and he is now muzzled around everyone at all times. I would have hired Peggy, but I didnt want to put her or my dog in a bad situation.

Christina and Tony are the best!! They care for your pet as if it was their own. Lots of love, belly rubs, walks, treats and everything else your furry friend needs while you're away, whether just at work or on vacation. The best part... you get pictures and texts of your pet so you know they're having fun while you're away. My dog LOVES them and goes crazy every time she sees them. What more can you ask for?! I highly recommend Woofs & Whiskers for all your pet care needs!!

Donna is professional, punctual, attentive and absolutely wonderful with my pups! They immediately bonded with her and she with them! She took great care of them while I went on a business trip, and administered their meds as directed. Donna also kept in communication with me, providing updates and even sent me a pic of my pups with hearts which was totally awesome! I highly recommend Donna Perona as a dog sitter! 🐶🐶

We have 2 dogs, one of whom is very difficult to work with. I didn’t think the dog would let someone unknown ever come into the house. Jacques has been great. He responded immediately and came to meet the dogs the next day. It was clear he had the experience he had the experience we needed. He is just wonderful. Just one week out and all is going so well. 5 stars to Jacques.

Llunaly M. provided me excellent pet and human care for my Lab Mix Tango and generously helped me while I recovering from hand surgery. My dog was only a puppy and I was in a full arm cast for months. Tango took to her calm demeanor and happily awaited her arrival for their daily walks. She also would ask if I needed groceries or help with getting my mail. She loves animals and any pet parent would be well suited selecting Llunaly as their pet care provider. I can't recommend her enough! Rest assured, she is the best!

Beth from Canine Einstein is absolutely amazing! She came to my house last night and worked with my new adopted rescue beagle, Charlotte. She is 2 years old and hasn't had any type of training before. She's not housebroken, she begs for food during all mealtimes, she jumps on tables (something I've never seen any dog do before!) and is pretty much into everything. We needed some serious help!! Beth is very knowledgeable, extremely patient and very soft spoken too. By the end of the night she had Charlotte sitting and staying (which is something she's Never done). Her normal things were to jump on you, stand on all 4 legs, stand on 2 legs while leaning against you, or to lay down and sleep but never sit!! Now Charlotte is becoming a completely different dog thanks to Beth. It's like night and day and I'm so relieved. Today Charlotte and I worked on all of the things that we learned last night and she's been doing fantastic. Beth is a truly gifted woman!

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.
