I am the owner of a very energetic Black Labrador. I knew that I had a dog with high energy and needed professional help with training my puppy. I found Martha Bernal through a friend at work who was happy with her dog training. Martha guided my puppy through ten sessions of puppy training (basic puppy obedience). I was very pleased with her obvious love of dogs and immediate results with each lesson. Martha has a gentle, effective approach to training dogs and my dog responded very well to her training sessions. The end result for me was that my Labrador became a lot more easy to manage because he understood the commands (requests) that I made such as "Come" "Sit" "Stay" "Leave it" and he also stopped jumping up on people. I enjoyed seeing my dog learn and am very happy with the dog training that Martha provided to my dog. He remembers everything she taught him and it makes our family happy to have a well trained big dog. I would recommend her highly to anyone considering a dog trainer.

Cami currently comes to our home to walk our dog, Marley, while my husband and I are at work. Also we have hired Cami to pet sit him when we travel, usually just a week at most. We trust Cami with Marley because she has great knowledge with being a dog trainer. What we love the most is she sends us updates of how he is doing, along with pictures of him. On top of her sending us updates we also love that she is always on time with a smile on her face. As of now there are no improvements for Cami as she has greatly outshined my expectations with myself being picky as to whom I leave my dog with.

Great pet sitter and dog walker. Rhonda has been taking care of my dog since I had him and she is really great with him and goes above and beyond just walking and house sitting. Her focus is always the well being of the animals she takes care of.

I’ve used Kara’s services multiple times now for dog walking and boarding. Her love for animals is obvious. Kara was very reassuring to me when I was nervous to leave her while I went away during the weekend. She sent me updates and photos and kept my four legged baby happy. I would definitely recommend Kara to anyone who needs pet care!

It was our first time using a pet sitter to stay overnight in our home and Madi made us feel extremely comfortable. You could immediately tell that she has a strong love of animals and our dog, Gracie, was drawn to her right away. Madi is extremely professional and we would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a trustworthy pet sitter.

Carrie has been great! She dog walks a couple days a week. She will text me to say she is on her way and will take pictures of my fur baby to send over. My dog looks forward to seeing her, and I feel completely comfortable with Carrie. I was a little scared to give a stranger keys and access to my house, but Carrie has proven to be trustworthy and a valuable addition to the family!

This is a respectable and compassionate professional pet caretaker. Eleanor "Cookie" provides the specific care I need for my diabetic cat, Ikee. He needs insulin twice a day and Cookie did not hesitate, where other pet sitters did. That, to me, is the difference between a sitter and a professional caregiver. Your pet family is in excellent hands with her!

It has been a wonderful experience. Shana comes to my home and works with my dog and then I work with him. She is very calm, doesn't raise her voice and he loves her and responds to her commands. I have the idea now and and so does my puppy. I am not finished yet but Sebastian is such a good boy now. I would definitely recommend Dog Rules.

Caroline did exceptional work with an aggressive shelter dog that had potential but needed to relax around people and other dogs. It worked: Athena was adopted about 6 months ago and is settled and happy in a wonderful forever home where she's cared for, loved and appreciated.

    Mia is A-Maz-ing!! I just rescued my first dog ( Frosty). With my busy schedule i am unable to be with him during the day. Frosty has a lot of energy and is not housebroken yet. I definitely have my hands full. So when i saw Mia's website for dog walking and training i was thrilled. After meeting with her i was assured she would be great for the job. And I'm so glad my intuition was right, Frosty loves Mia!! I am not coming home to presents Frosty has left for me to clean up anymore. He rarely has accidents in the house now, and with his daily walks i find that he is a lot calmer when i come home. Mia must run him wild. Mia is extremely professional and her love for dogs is abundant! Thank you Mia!!

    Melanie is awesome! My dogs are my kids and I wouldn't leave their safety and care in the hands of just anyone. She is just as detail oriented and loving as I am and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone. She is assuredly a rare find...and has all of the necessary or required business management, insurance and other platforms in place. All in all, SOLID!!!!

    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. 

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
