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.

Sebastian has been walking my two small dogs for nearly three months now. He has been very professional and polite. He understands how to handle my dogs' needs and personality issues. Sebastian has also been very reliable.

Furget Me Not is indescribable. Kara and Nicole came to our house to meet our two dogs. I knew they were keepers based off of this tiny, but important, detail: Millie was sitting next to Kara on the couch, playing with a toy that kept falling off the couch. Kara dutifully kept picking it up and handing it to her - at least a dozen times. THAT is who I want to take care of my fur babies. Nicole has regularly been coming to our house - originally 5x/week, and now with changed work schedules, 3x/week. I notice a clear difference in my kids' moods on the days when Nicole comes. They're happy, excited, and spunky. The rates can't be beat for the service being provided. Though we pay for a walk, she also feeds them a snack, gives them carrots as treats, and spends some cuddle/play time with them. She's never made us feel that she was "on the clock" and takes the time to ensure that the dogs are comfortable. She's even offered to stick around while we were having maintenance at our house and had to have the dogs holed up in one of the bedrooms. We cannot recommend them more highly. Fast, reliable, consistent, and true pet lovers. There's nothing more we could ask for.
