I was very pleased with the grooming service provided by Cathy. She consistently responded to me leading up to the service within 5-10 minutes. She arrived 15 minutes prior to the designated start time to give herself time to set up and prepare. She took her time with my dog, Maizee, who's only 4 months old and was very patient with her during her very first grooming! The best part was that my pup didn't even have to leave the comfort of her own home which eliminated any stress or anxiety about getting groomed! Also - I was able to get things done around the house! It really was a win-win! I would not hesitate to hire Cathy again. A great value for the services that are provided in the convenience of your own home! Thanks, Cathy!

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.

I had Julie walk my very enthusiastic Doberman Pincher Bella. On a number of occasions. I thought Bella might run off with her, but she did an excellent job. She is very kind and gentle with my dog and has always been prompt. Her fee is also very reasonable.

Wolf took excellent care of my fur baby when I went out of town. We spoke at length on what I needed her to do (what time to feed, and let my dog out). She is a trustworthy person and is excellent at her job. I would not hesitate to use her services again.

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!

    Chantelle and Mutt Butts are the most reliable and down to earth pet sitters. Chantelle was able to fit in my cat visits right away and always follows up with me on the same day of the visit. Best prices around! She also provides dog walking services to my girlfriend- which has also been a great experience. Our animals look forward to her visits

    Karen is wonderful with my dog! Usually after the initial meet & greet I prefer to be at the first few visits until I know my dog and the pet sitter are comfortable with each other. But my dog took yo Karen immediately and I was able to skip that step very comfortably. My dog fell in love with her instantly, and he is usually a very cautious dog. And as dog lovers know, we can trust their instincts. Karen has been so flexible and goes above & beyond. I'm so grateful I found her!

    Audreys is excellent! Extremely knowledgeable and professional. I have 3 dogs and Audreys came out prior to job and met with dogs and us. She went over and above with both our dogs and home. We have already used her services twice and have booked several more. Audrey is our go to pet sitter...she has become family. We are extremely selective when it comes to our babies and before Audrey only two people (family) have stayed with them. Audrey has been an angel. 100% Recommend!

    Laurie and the Just Paws team are truly wonderful. We've used Just Paws for dog walking, cat feeding, and even an overnight stay. Laurie is meticulous in getting to know you, your pets, and your needs (and even visited our house, ensuring that every detail was understood in advance). Small things -- the notes the team leaves behind after their visits -- provide peace of mind and make it clear they really care for your pets. The introduction of the online booking service makes it incredibly easy to ensure that dates are booked. I can't say enough positive... it's not always easy to entrust the care of your pets to others, but Laurie makes it so.

    Brandy is great with my two girls. They are slow to warm up to other people and dogs but they took to her right away! She takes them for good walks and always sends me photos, videos, and leaves me with a report of their behavior (good or bad haha). I can tell that she is confident with handling dogs and can adapt to different personalities and characteristics which is important. We don’t know what we’d do without her!

    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.
