Stephanie was wonderful. She came and stayed at our home for one week, and fed our dog and cat, and did the walking of the dog as indicated and emptying of the cat box as instructed. In addition to doing what she was hired for, for a very affordable price, Stephanie was also very responsive to questions before she began sitting for us, and was available to talk over the phone during the time that we were away. In addition to all of this, she was available for an introductory "meet and greet." We liked her immediately and plan to use her services again in the future!

I having nothing but good things to say about this company. Natasha is very friendly, exceedingly professional, and most importantly great with dogs. My dog can be skittish at times, and initially he did not want to leave the house to go on walks with Natasha. She was very patient, worked with him over several visits, and now he gets excited whenever she comes. She was so patient with him, and it gives me great peace-of-mind knowing that she is there to visit with him on days when I have to work late.

We had two 2 dogs 13 years old and my daughter recently introduced her 2 year old dog when moving back home. Things became out of control, especially at feeding time. Clair worked with us and the dogs and it was amazing how quickly they responded to the training! Life is good again. We continue to use her to keep the dogs in check.

Tristan is so great with our dogs! When the time for their walk with Tristan is near, they sit attentively and wait for hi to come. He's also firm but relaxed, which I makes him a good leader. That's key for us, because ONE of our guys thinks he's the boss! We've never had a dog walking service before, and Tristan was our first and will be our only, for as long as we can have him :) You can trust them with your woofies!

Oh my goodness, Jenny was the best, and affordable compared to DC area dog sitters. She had Pet Vet Background, so she's on top of everything, especially if your dog has meds. Sounds as if she was totally on top of walks and such. I will be using her again for our dog Daisy, hoping she doesn't become super popular from this positive review and others' reviews. I asked her if she would want to.watch my Teens too! (ha ha)

We've been using Petstigious Pets dog walking services since the end of December and we couldn't be happier. The company owners met with us on short notice and were able to accommodate our requests. We are very happy with the exceptional level of professionalism and near immediate responsiveness via text messages. They even send daily report cards with a photo or two of your animal. We highly recommend this company.

Karen has been walking my youngest dog and taking out my other 3 dogs for the past 2 years. She has been absolutely wonderful and loves and treats my dogs as if they are her own. She's also done an extended overnight stay while we were out of town. I wouldn't trust anymore more than I trust Karen. She has been amazing and gives me daily updates as well to how everything went!

Met both Blake and Cecelia and immediately could sense their love for dogs and that this is more than just a business. That being said, they are quite well run. Quick and attentive responses and I don't worry about the quality of the walks one bit. Having several dog walking services, I truly recommend this one.

Our dog walker has been incredibly reliable. He clearly enjoys interacting with my two German Shepherds and my dogs look forward to seeing him each week day. He leaves us a note every day and alerts us to potential issues we might need to address with our senior citizen dogs. In short, I'm very pleased with the support provided by Jen's team.

Spoiled Pawz has been excellent. Caroline has been walking my dog for more than 5 years and he just loves her. She is part of his family and daily routine. I trust her completely with my best buddy.

Gray is dedicated, knowledgeable, and very trustworthy. Being a vet and having an older dog with a few chronic medical concerns, it was really important to leave her with someone I trust completely. Gray has never let me down and I know my dog is always in good hands with her. It's always comforting when Kota is excited to arrive at Gray's house for the weekend. I'd highly recommend her.

    Llunaly M. provided me excellent pet and human care for my Lab Mix Tango and generously helped me while I recovering from hand surgery. My dog was only a puppy and I was in a full arm cast for months. Tango took to her calm demeanor and happily awaited her arrival for their daily walks. She also would ask if I needed groceries or help with getting my mail. She loves animals and any pet parent would be well suited selecting Llunaly as their pet care provider. I can't recommend her enough! Rest assured, she is the best!

    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.
