"I cannot say enough good things about this place! Top notch pet and customer service! I needed a last minute walk which I figured was going to be impossible. Not only did they get me a quote in less than 5 minutes they had me scheduled in 10 min from when I placed the ad! Very impressive! And was very surprised after the walk I received a text and email of a report card with very cute pics of my pup. I could tell she was happy and having a good time and that was so nice to have that peace of mind. They are gps tracked, background checked, bonded and insured. They offer many services and are very good at working around your needs quickly and effectively. I really felt like they genuinely cared. The owner or manager is the first one to contact and meet with you. They pair you with the best pet sitter for your needs and availability. I will say being last minute I did not experience the official meet and greet but I did get to talk to the owner who explained all this to me. Explained she was out of town and would get with me the next day to set up a meet and greet to meet me and my pup but told me a premier pet sitter who was amazing would be walking my dog. She made me feel comfortable with this process and I was not disappointed. I am excited to find someplace I know I can trust and my pet is treated like part of their family."

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.
