Ali can best be described as the "gold standard" for dog walking and care! You won't find anyone more caring, through or reliable! My pups just love her!

Greg walked my dog Daisy 5 times a week and was just what I was looking for! Daisy is a young pitbull and therefore needs plenty of exercise and attention, Greg was able to provide that for her while I was at work and she is happier and healthier than she has ever been. I can't thank Greg enough for taking care of Daisy, and the reasonable rate is a definite plus!

Angela was so good with all my animals. She even had to deal with getting sprayed by a skunk with the dogs! She did a great job of cleaning up! I felt comfortable while I was gone, knowing my animal family had excellent care.

On short notice Cape Dog Walking was able to accommodate our travel needs. Cape Dog Walking took our dogs for a walk every three hours during the day, cleaned up any mess (the dogs are old), and took care of the paper, mail and other small animals.

We want your dog to interact with other dogs, but we do not want to overburden them with more dogs on a leash; therefore, we only walk two dogs at a time. Your dog will experience different places to explore by being walked on trails, parks and beaches. Let us know what you have in mind for keeping your dog happy, and we will deliver! All employees of Four Paws a Walking have dogs, and understand that your dog is family. We will show your dog all of the care and compassion we would show our own dogs. Life is hectic, let us take one more thing off from your to-do list.

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.
