Sonia and her crew did an AMAZING job on our home! My expectations were VERY high as I have a cancer/hospice patient moving in this week. We are a family of 4 (with a dog) were very busy and our house is well loved and seriously lived it! Not ever having a service clean my home, I was very nervous, wondering if I'd get what was expected. Sonia was extremely personable, sweet and willing to go over target areas in depth and has a ton of patience. She also took the time explain why she couldn't get a particular area clean (my much neglected grout) She wasnt rushed to make the buck, they worked very hard on eeeeeverything I needed and more! The amount of stress and pressure they took off of me, was well worth it! I absolutely will be hiring for reoccurring business. I will never use another cleaning service, as long as she's around. My definite go to and I can't wait to rave about her to my entire network. Thank you again Sonia! You're amazing!

She has been most helpful with my mother's dog, not only walking her, but offering training and suggesting better ways to work with her newly adopted dog.

Our cleaning lady was great! She put so much effort into cleaning the stove/oven and it shows. She also did dishes, cleaned the bathroom, did the floors and even helped put my grocery delivery away (I have a broken leg). She did this all while my toddler ran amuck. Impressive.

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.

We got a new pup and we needed someone to come 3 times a day, to play, walk and feed her while we were at work. When I contacted Lets Walk Chicago, Lauren promptly responded to my emails and even met with us Friday night before we even got our puppy. When we got our little one we met with Beth the designated walker for the area as well as Lauren who fills in should Beth not be able to make it. Beth and Lauren are wonderful, they comes to take Watson out at the requested times, feeds her and plays with her. If for some reason our normal walker isn't able to make it, we get a notice the day before or the morning of that Lauren will be filling in, they keep us in the loop on everything. I also get cute pictures and notes of the days activities. So far I could not be more pleased with Lets Walk Chicago.

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!

Paula was absolutely phenomenal. I recently was working 12 hour days for 2 weeks straight and needed a dog walker to take my 2 dogs out twice a day. I hired Paula off of Thumbtack and wow I couldn't have asked for a nicer, incredibly reliable, and trustworthy dog walker. She passed along updates on the dogs and always kept me in the loop on the pups. She was very kind and very passionate about what she does. I would give her 10 stars if I could. Paula is definitely my go to dog walker from here on out and I passed out a couple of her cards to my neighbors with dogs. If you want a great dog walker, do yourself a favor and hire Paula!!

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!

I was desperate for a dog walker when my local high schoolers went off to college. Todd has been great. Wally, my kind of tough mixed breed shelter dog really likes him and Todd has never let me down.

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!

Carlos walks my dog Samson every weekday. He's proven to be very reliable and he makes it clear that he cares about Samson. Carlos keeps me informed about anything I need to know about Samson that happens on his walks, too.

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.
