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

Michelle watched my two German Shepards when I went to Florida for a week. Normally my dogs don't do very well with strangers but they love Michelle! I highly recommend hiring Michelle to watch your pet. She is always there when I need her. She took my two dogs on walks, brushed them, and even sent me a couple photos. Michelle is very reliable and responsible. I will definitely allow her to care for my pets again while I am away.

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.

Rachel (scent-sational pet sitting) is a one of a kind pet sitter! Our 3 dogs love her so much. They anticipate her arrival and are more excited to see her than my husband and I. She truly has a gift with animals.

    Vanessa has helped sit for my dogs when I was out of town for work on several occassions. She is very responsible and trustworthy. I had all faith my dogs were in good hands during my absence. I would recommemd her highly as the BEST! Plus, my dogs were spoiled with LOVE! Much better than boarding with the flexibility and comfort of them staying at home.

      We have used Warner Walks several times over the past 12 months and would not hesitate to recommend Alannah's service to anyone in need of pet care. She has a sunny, kind disposition and her love for animals is obvious. She is responsible, flexible and always willing to accommodate our pet's normal routine. We are assured that our pets, and home, are in good hands while we are away!


      I can walk dogs, cats and any animals that need company. I am able to clean and sanitize animal areas.


      I love dogs and love to go on long walks with them. Please consider me to help your busy family and provide desired care for your pet.

      I am good at what I do all the time -- you just name it, and if I can't do what you want and you tell me how to do it, I will do it or I will at least try my best to do so.


      I stand out because I really injoy watching animals and some people do it for the money and I do it for both.


      I enjoy tutoring kids, looking after dogs, or doing housekeeping. Please give me a chance to prove my work in your home.


      I have had five bulldogs over the last 18 years. They are a special breed that have special needs and have unique personalities. I would love to walk, care for and love on yours!


      I do pet sitting, walking and playing. I give all the TLCs they require. I love dogs. I can administer medicine if needed.


      I am a dog sitter and dog walker. I have loved watching dogs for a long time. I have 1 of my own. I have trained it very well. It used to be scared of walking outside, and now, loves it. My goal is to make your dogs happy, take them on walks, and watch them when you need someone to watch them. I have always been a dog lover and always will.


      I don't own a business. I can do this as a side job. I can walk your dogs any day of the week, from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm except Saturdays.

      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.
