Cathy came in a timely matter. She did an excellent job with my dog. The dog was the first time she had a private groomer. Cathy kept my dog quiet by just talking and the dog settled down. I have already signed up for another visit. Very pleased Maureen Riley

Just had first cleaning & have to say overall Priscilla did a wonderful job. She's a pleasure to work with, very professional, accommodating & nonintrusive. Would highly recommend her & will be using her on a regular basis. If you're thinking of hiring someone, you will not be disappointed! And to make your life even easier, she also walks dogs if needed?

My dog loves Robin! And so do I. Always on time and always staying late! So polite. I was very nervous about starting training with my dog because she is very high-energy and she is already three years old. Robin reassured me that with all of her experience things should go fine and she was right. Taking my dog for a walk has become enjoyable instead of a chore. Huge improvements and such a reasonable price. Thank you Robin!!

We were in search of a new dog walker to help us with our 2 year old golden. We never expected to meet such a reliable and professional person as Jess. She brings a lot to the table with her many years of experience working with animals. Our dog absolutely loves her (he rolled onto his back within minutes of meeting her which is not typical of him at all!). I would highly recommend Jess to anyone looking for someone passionate about helping owners and their animals.

Leaving our fur-babies for a long weekend was a hard decision, but once I met our sitter, Lesley, I knew our kids would be in great hands! Not only did we get updates on her online portal of when she completed visits, but each time Lesley was with the dogs, we got pictures of each of them! It was really a great experience from start to finish, and I could not have been happier! I certainly know who we will call in the future to watch our kids! THANK YOU, LESLEY!

Tara watched our cat while we were out of town and also checked on our mail. She was reliable and professional and I would recommend her to other pet owners. My cat is 17 lb and sometimes a grump, but he felt comfortable with Tara and I loved getting her text updates and pictures on how he was doing.

Debbie is not only an animal lover, she’s an all around good person. Down to earth and very personable, she’s prompt and goes above and beyond. I have a very ill, elderly dog and was able to leave him in Debbie’s care without worry.

We discussed what she intended to do, what her method was. What she extected from me. I have started acting on some of her ideas. Bought him a kennel and tried training better how to walk on a leash.

I was thoroughly impressed with In the Neighborhood. They kept me in the loop on a daily basis with pictures and videos. They took care of Rico like he was their own and even taught him a new trick! I will100% would use this company again.

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.
