I have known Lisa for years and each time I have called on her to take care of my dog Griffey, she is always there. She is very professional, always on time, very reasonable and most importantly loves and takes great care of Griffey. He gets very excited every time he sees her. If you are looking for someone to take care of or walk your dog, I highly recommend Lisa.

Brandon from NKY pet sit took care of our dog and cat while we were on vacation. We were anxious about leaving our animals home but he calmed our nerves. We knew that they were all in good hands with Brandon. Our animals loved him and they were well cared for. Brandon also brought in our mail and took out our garbage. We will definitely use him again!!

I like the fact the trainers have knowledge of the maltese breed. They made me feel welcome and that they will work with me and my baby.

Extremely satisfied. Fit me into her schedule on short notice, and did a beautiful job grooming my Bernese Mountain Dog in preparation for a show. Particularly liked how well she trimmed the nails! Paisley was happy, too. We'll definitely return again. :)

What a relief! Went on a business Trip and Clinton took care of my lab. Even took my trash out and got my mail! Thanks!


If you want a dog walker who adores all pups and has two of her own, I'm the girl for you! I've never met a dog I didn't fall in love with, and you can rest easy knowing that your best friend is in caring hands.


I will make sure sure dog and cats are alright. I will give food and water and spend significant time with them. I will also provide dog walking services. I have a diploma in dog care and am a veterinary assistant.


Im so energetic I will never get tired of walking your dog, it will be $20 each hour I love dogs that why I want this job and I take pride in my attention


I do detailed housecleaning. I am experienced, and I can provide references. I also do house-sitting, dog walking, and dog sitting. I can also travel if you need a nanny for your child.


We offer dog training, behavior modification, Canine Good Citizen(R) testing, community canine testing, therapy dog training, dog sitting, and dog walking.


I am always happy to be working with animals! Dogs are my favorite I really do love animals, so my prices will never be high. I love the companionship that dogs bring


I can provide training and exercise that will help your dog become a great family member! I use completely force free methods. ZERO prong, choke, chain, or shock collars. Buckle or martingale collars are acceptable along with front clasp harnesses! (I don't mind giving recommendations) We work WITH our dogs and help them figure out what we DO want from them and not what we DON'T want from them. I will help you make training into a fun game with your dog instead of a 'chore'. Training doesn't only make your pup tolerable to the family unit but strengthens your bond to your pup and makes your dog WANT to work for you! I love seeing the faces of dog parents when they see their dogs reach their goals! The 'AH-HA' moment! Creating working, dynamic relationships between owner and dog! Exposing FORCE FREE training!!! Working with people from all around the city and building successful relationships!


I'm a dog walker, I walk dogs so they must be properly trained and I house sit dogs, I will also clean and watch after them.

We focus more exclusively on the relationship between pet and owner, creating an unbreakable bond that ties them together, so that they work better together. We will initially work with the dog, showing them the command and what is expected, then we hand the control to the owner and help them master the command. I love working with the pets and owners and the satisfaction I feel when I see pet and owner working hand in paw


Hi! My name is Sarah Clifton, and I am a dog enthusiast. I love animals and understand that everyone else who loves animals, as much as I do, also have a life outside of their pets. I am here to reassure you that when you are at work, on vacation or just needing some time out with your spouse or loved one, your pet will be loved and well cared for. I offer dog walking, doggie day care, feedings and some house-sitting (dependent on times). I am caring and well organized. I show up on time and do my job very well. I have two dogs of my own that truly make my life worth living. So, please let me share that love with your dogs. I have experiences through my own pets and also through fostering and rescuing pets. Thank you for your consideration.


We treat all dogs with respect and care and provide them with an enjoyable scenic walk that is fulfilling to them and us as well.


Honesty, at first I was only looking for a paying job, but when I came across the career of pet sitting/walking, I thought it was a great idea since I am so great 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.
