We contacted Jodi regarding our Rottweiler puppy "Obi". He has an extremely high drive, and was beginning to show aggression issues. Trimming his nails became almost impossible as was putting in ear drops when he had an infection. Walking in the neighborhood became an issue as well, as he was always jumping on people and wanting to play with other dogs while walking. Jodi showed us a different approach in how we dealt with Obi. Instead or trying to "force" Obi to do what we wanted, she showed us how to use positive reinforcement through choice to get him to do the things we wanted from him. She really does make it look easy. Obi absolutely loves Jodi, we will always be grateful to her for showing us a different approach other than dominance based training. Trying to force a Rottweiler with aggression issues to do something he doesn't want to do wasn't a pleasant thing. Obi now willingly lets us trim his nails. (With a Dremel) and walks calmly through the neighborhood ignoring distractions. He still gets excited and jumps on people occasionally(he's still a puppy, albeit a 95 lb. puppy) but the difference in him has been like night and day. We will continue to use the techniques we learned from Jodi in dealing with issues as they arrive in the future. We would recommend Jodi to anyone who is looking for a trainer who specializes in "positive reinforcement ".

We will NEVER use another dog groomer again! While the price can be considered a little high, it is not higher than another mobile groomers, and completely worth it. We have a senior yorkie that we were terrified to take to the groomers and they worked with him and us so well that everything worked out great. Not only is customer service and communication amazing, the work the did was exactly what we wanted going into the summer. They did amazing on our Pomeranian also 😆 🐕

Mr. Jimenez was prompt, he showed attention to my dogs before he was to groom them. There was no mess on my property from the grooming trailer. His grooming trailer was spotless. The dogs demeanor after grooming was excellent, not like when they have been taken to a grooming facility. I have a 5 yr old, 10 yr old dog, so the temperaments are very different. I plan to call on him again in the future.

Tracy is a vital part of keeping my family happy and healthy. She walks Lana, my autistic child's dog- 2 times/ day... if I need her a third time because of work or if my son is sick or for any reason, she's there if at all able.. Lana gets full 30 minute walks, Tracy runs her, watches her overall health/ stool/ weight. Tracy has also helped us through GI CRISIS! She has an invested personal interest in animals and is very very knowledgeable about holistic methods of treating animals. I'm sure I've saved up to $1 K in vet bills by trying Tracy's recommendations, or the recipes she has made herself for Lana's sensitive tummy. I get pictures of Lana playing and having fun on walks. There's nothing better than having NO worries about your animal who's home alone. and, its even better to arrive home to a dog who is well exercised, happy, and just ready to see you. Lana got a stuffed heart for Valentine's day, a green rope that mimicks her favorite toy that she tore up, and a tire toy with little bones on it with a rope attached. Tracy knows what she likes, needs, and is aware of subtle or big changes in Lana... when my mind may be too occupied with work or my son to notice. I could write a book. My happy healthy fit, well exercised dog is in good condition daily to love my son. That's the most important part. I had tried 1 service before.. it was business, it was double the price, and it was half the time spent. It was out of necessity when I had the flu, but it was a polar opposite experience. Last, I trust Tracy 100%. She has a key, is respectful of space, time.. she walks Lana set times and cleans her up after walks and fills her water bowl. I may be asleep on my day off, Tracy is quiet yet lets herself be known. Or, I may bombard Tracy:) with questions about dog issues, etc. Though I don't abuse it and I appreciate it- she's up for the task because she loves animals. Try it..just once (if you can get on her schedule). If you get on her schedule, don't be stupid enough to get off! It's better than gold. I'll never go back (unless I buy 20 acres)... lol, sorry Tracy. You could still consult in place of the vet!

Cindy has cared for my three dogs on more than one occasion. One of our dogs is up in years and has a few health issues so we no longer want to leave him at a boarding kennel. We prefer for the dogs to stay together at home when we travel. Cindy takes such good care of my fur babies and they are always happy to see her. Cindy loves on our fur babies and keeps them well fed and brushed. We are relieved to know our dogs are safe and happy with Ms. Cindy while we are away from the pack.

I don't have a business, but I would love to start a pet sitting/dog walking business. I enjoy being with animals. The best way to get hold of me is texting, but if you can't text, call, and leave a message. I am a hard worker, and I do what needs to be done.

About

I have a dog of my own and I know he enjoys long walks, so I am willing to provide that to other dogs whose owners may be too busy to do so. I can also make sure your dog is fed and comfortable whenever you are away, on business or vacationing.

I'm in the Louisville area and local small business started to help people around the city to help them and their pets to feel like that they are meant for one another and to make sure that they stay together and not left out on the street. My price is based on the job and the pet that is and how long it take to take care of the problem. It is better if the animals are young, but if you have an old dog that need to learn a new trick then. I will be happy to see what happen with the animal and like the old saying can't teach an old dog a new trick, but I believe that that they can with time. So please, if you like what you hear then get at me and will go from there. Have a great day.

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.
