Marie was very flexible as far as scheduling. I was nervous about how the session would go because our lab is almost 100lbs and jumps and gets very excited. I started to worry if he was trainable. She helped him calm down right away and helped us understand how to speak his language and train off a basic foundation. We can build so much training off what she taught us. I have never seen my dog behave so well when somebody came over. I can’t wait to see our Storm be a little less of a disaster warning ;) Thank you so much Marie! We can’t wait to have you check our work!

Obi grooms my 2 dogs and does a great job. She is patient and wonderful with my dogs. She gives then a bath, cleans their ears, clips their nails and brushes their teeth. My dogs look and smell great, thanks Obi!

About

I offer dog obedience training, which is a 4-month course. I'm specializing in large dog breeds and puppies. I also train the owners. The training is 5 days per week for the first month and 3 days per week for the final 3 months. Some training-specific gear (less than USD100) must be purchased by the owner. Some of the items a dog owner probably already has. At the end of the course, the owner will have a leash-trained dog that is happy and knows how to behave in many different situations.

About

I take care of animals, and my business is great because I love and respect them. I'm really good with animals.

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.
