I am very happy with Belinda and my dog Mollie loves her. After having one dog walking company for 11 years it was time for a change. I found Belinda through Thumbtack and could not be happier!.

Angela was just what I was looking for in a dog sitter! I had no doubt Sonic was loved and cared for when I was gone and appreciated the updates she sent me throughout his stay. Her services and expertise gave me peace of mind so I could enjoy my vacation! She was also very flexible and fair

Dina has been walking my dog Bentley since August and has always been more than attentive. Dina has gone over the top for me numerous times, including helping me out on the weekends and at night when something comes up. Occasionally I get pictures from her while they are out and he seems to be having a blast. Dina's service is second to none and I would recommend her to anyone else interested.

Lisa has been my pet sitter for over 4 years now. Loyal, trustworthy and dependable are her 3 greatest attributes and the most important part is my dogs just love her! She is just great with them! She has even rushed one of my dogs to my vet when she was at my house pet sitting. My dog cut herself on my fencing deep enough to require stitches. I highly recommend her!

    I have a 10 year old cat and a 10 week old Greater Swiss Mountain Dog puppy. Connie has been there for us on countless occasions due to work, travel and everyday obligations. She is friendly, punctual, reliable, trustworthy and not to mention great with our animals. We wouldn't dream of requesting anyone else. We highly recommend Connie. Her sweet personality is a bonus too! I promise you won't be disappointed!

    Nicole called me back in a timely matter. She was extremely professional. Her prices were average for this area. I’m from San Diego, where I thought the price would be higher but they are about twice the price here. Shocked me. She was the 5th dog walking service I spoke to, but the 1st I interviewed. My dog took to her immediately! He does not do this to everyone, as he is extremely protective! So, that was a very positive sign. She brought one of her walkers with as they will be helping to walk my dog and he loved her as well! He went on a walk with Nicole already and loved it. When they got back he got a snack and was happy as can be! She also met all 3 of my cats, so if I need her too she can also care for them. I’m very happy I was put in contact with Mutts in A Rutt!

    Even though I didn't eventually need a walker, I was impressed with the prompt, polite, and accommodating responses from your employee. If I should need dog walking services in the future, I surely will contact you.

    Denise has been cat sitting for me for about a year and I could not be happier. Not only does she scoop the poop and feed and water my fur baby, she takes the time to pet and brush her. She is a cat and dog owner so she knows the ins and outs. I definitely would recommend Denise to care for your pet.

    I hired Barb Carter to take care of my cat for a week. She was terrific. I received daily updates about how my cat was eating and how active. My cat had no trouble adjusting to Barb and went right to her lap. I will definitely hire her again. I felt relieved to have left her in such capable and caring hands.

      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.
