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

Jamie is incredible! We are so happy with Simply Waggable! We feel very comfortable leaving to go to work, knowing that our dog will always be well taken care of! Having an often sick pup, Jamie always texts us to let us know that our dog is doing okay. Plus, she leaves us the best notes everyday that tell us about their time together, how long she was with our pup, and if anything weird was going on. Seriously, this dog walking company is the best!

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!

Majestic paws has been wonderful! They're the best dog walking service we've worked with in Chicago and we've tried our fair share. The check in system is so cool and let's us know when the walker arrives and leaves. We also really like the comments our walker Gabe leaves daily. It give me piece of mind knowing our dogs are well taken care of. I couldn't recommend majestic paws highly enough!

My 3 dogs look and smell great after getting groomed here. One of my dogs is part Schnauzer and we always get him a schnauzer cut, which isn't easy to do, I've been told. She did outstanding. I also have a yorkie who was dealing with an injury and she was able to work with him. After a bad experience at PetCo and having visited multiple dog grooming facilities, I am beyond pleased and satisfied with my experience at Deja Vu's K-9 Corner. I will be going back to get my dogs groomed here.

I am so pleased to write a review of my dog walker,Todd Friedman. Todd is dependable, knowledgeable, and conscientious. He has been walking my rescued dog for the past three months. She can be an excitable girl and sometimes a challenge. But Todd knows how to handle her with love and understanding. If a problem arises, he lets me know right away and handles things in a professional manner. Gracie looks forward to his visits. And I am grateful to have found him!

One major concern of any dog lover when he or she vacations is how to care for one's pet, especially a sensitive and shy dog like our Luke. We found that Helene of Pawsitively Pets is the answer. From our first contact with Helene, she proved to be responsive and reliable. During our initial meet and greet, she meticulously collected information about our pet and our needs. When we left for vacation, she showed up every day in rain or shine at the agreed-upon time to walk our dog. She even left notes to let us know how the week unfolded! Helene is highly responsible, reliable, knowledgeable and caring. Her credentials are excellent. We unhesitatingly recommend her dog walking and pet sitting services. She performed magnificently for us! We will be calling upon her services again the next time we vacation!

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.
