    About

    I am a 21 years young college student majoring in Psychology. I provide services to keep your pet happy and healthy. My love for animals will be shown in the way I care for your pet. No one wants to see their pet lonely and poorly taken cared of and so with my fun-loving personality and love towards animals, your pet will also enjoy its time with me and will be well taken care of. Activities such as dog walking, pet sitting, dog and cat vacation care, and dog grooming are part of my services. I have been surrounded by many pets every time. There is not a time where I don't get excited when I visit someone who has a pet at their place. I've also taken care of dogs and cats while the owner is out on a vacation, be it short or not. Also, I have owned a lot of pets of my own. These include: * fishes * dogs * cats * birds (parrots, cockatoo, love birds, canary, raven, parakeets, zebra finches, and a green cheek conure) * reptiles (ball python, corn snake, and geckos) * hamsters, guinea pigs and bunnies * ferret Due to my love for animals, I have also rescued a couple that I saw needed care or stranded in a dangerous environment. Costumers who received my service were always satisfied and happy. As I don't only take care of your animal but I also befriend them. Not only will I take care of your pet, but I will also bring in mail, take out the garbage, water plants, and provide your pet tons of love and playtime. In order for both of us and your pet/s to be acquainted with each other, a prior visit will be scheduled at no charge. (*A $5 travel charge will be only placed if the location seems a bit far from my location.) Availability: Tuesday, Thursday-Sunday. (**Monday and Wednesday availability are only from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. as I have classes during the morning and at night.)

    I'll make sure your dog has some good company when we go on walks. I'll turn a regular walk for them into an adventure. But, wait! Walking dogs isn't all I do! If you need a pet sitter, baby sitter, car washer, house sitter, you name it, I'm on it.

    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.
