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!

Amanda did an amazing job taking care of my cat. He requires insulin injections twice a day, and she was always prompt and efficient. She followed all my directions for the injections and would send me picture text messages to keep me updated each day. In addition to the insulin injections, she also cleaned the litterbox every day & played with my cat. Would definitely recommend!

Great dog walking service! Has both the perks of a large company (e.g., electronic scheduling/email, very responsive) while also connecting you with an individual dog walker who works to address whatever needs you might have. Love that it's automatic credit card billing too and the ability to have an online account.

Rebecca was professional but enjoyable to work with at the same time She worked to establish a positive relationship and experience for my elderly special needs dog She also worked with me to help me feel comfortable and less stressed She was excellent at listening to me and what I wanted while explaining her work and strategies at the same time She was an obvious dog lover and a “people person “ with a great personality while being professional and also a perfectionist about her work and how great she wanted my dog to look when he was finished,never rushing and never making me feel as if she was watching the clock She spent a lot of time at my home, gave my dog breaks when she felt he needed one and cleaned up as she worked She went above and beyond and I will use only her for any future needs

Clare Owings was just wonderful. Something that I found extremely valuable was that she listened to my situation very well so she gave me pointers and suggestions taking into consideration my lifestyle. My 9-month-old dog has learned so much just after two sessions with her. She is excellent with dogs and, maybe more importantly, with dog owners. She knew how to "handle" my dog and me pretty well. I appreciated her coming not only to my house but also to the dog park and to places where I walk with my dog. I really recommend her!

Ray and Christine were extremely thorough and thoughtful.... Every afternoon I returned home to a report card of how my puppy had behaved when they walked her. They both visited prior to the week of dog walking to meet me and the puppy, which I genuinely appreciated. Though it was not necessary, they would let me know, in advance which one would be walking the dog. The other HUGE benefit to hiring this husband/wife duo, is how flexible they are, on short notice. Their price is lower than anyone I found in the area. I would definitely recommend using their services. I, sincerely, cannot speak more highly of their work!

I couldn't be happier with the training that we've received from Social Tailwaggers. Jodie, our trainer. is so patient and very knowledgeable. The first time we met, we discussed what training I was interested in and what goals we were trying to achieve for my dog, Cooper. Cooper was around 10-11 months old when we began our first training session. She immediately began to introduce new skills and commands to work on training Cooper. After each lesson, Jodie sends a detailed email outlining all of the skills we worked on and suggestions to help with practicing on my own. Jodie was also helpful with recommendations on types of toys and feeding bowls to help with the energy level of my dog. I would highly recommend Social Tailwaggers to anyone who needs help training a new puppy or an older dog. It is well worth the time, money and effort to have a well trained dog and not only are you going to have a well trained, better behaved dog, it's also a lot of fun time spent with your dog.

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.

Working with Frederick Pet Buddies is the best! They care for my dog like she's part of their family. I trust them in my home too -- they have stayed overnight -- so my dog can feel safe and secure while I'm away.

Bertie is a great dog sitter. We have two dogs who adore her and always seem relaxed and calm when we return. She is completely reliable and trustworthy, and takes care of regular house maintenance as required. We intend to continue using her as our first choice dog sitter!

I had one a day 30 minute walks for my dog during the day and it went wonderfully! I received a picture every walk which I really appreciated and a run down of what they did. It was very comforting knowing my dog was in good hands and I trusted the team with access to my apartment.

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.
