"Resorting to a website such as Thumtack, as well as allowing another person to take care of my 3 fur babies was not an easy decision. But, finding Mary has been an ultimate game changer as well as an immeasurable elevation to our quality of life. She is … consistent, responsible, conscientious, reputable, compassionate, and dedicated. She is excellent in communication with texts, pictures and videos. She has attentiveness to exuberant exercise and conscious cognitive growth. She ensures safety to dogs and people around them. She has ability to maintain leader of the pack while still allowing each dog to be an individual. She is aware of giving each dog separate one on one time. Mary is thoughtful in refreshing water, wiping paws, drying off after swims, giving treats and toys, and daily feedings. She is mindful and meticulous in potty breaks and pet waste removal. She is concerned in taking in mail as well as observance of surrounding house and neighborhood for security. I feel overly grateful for Mary. She is first rate, qualified, trustworthy, nurturing, and gives outstanding care to our dogs. I can easily state that I am confident that she nurtures them as much as we do. I consider Mary a part of our family unit, as I cannot imagine one day without her input into our daily lives. I know the dogs are so excited to see her as she has a true genuine love for dogs and animals."

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.
