Ruth is a godsend with my dog! She knows just how to handle my shy, 75-pound rescue dog to put him at ease and give him the exercise and sniff-time he needs while I am recovering from minor surgery. He comes back exhilarated from his walks with her! Super friendly and conscientious, Ruth is someone I would trust to take care of all my pet's needs if I ever went out of town. She is THAT caring and attentive and understands the way dogs work -- even mine, who gets separation anxiety and alpha tendencies. I am so grateful to have found Ruth who clearly has a big heart for dogs and people and really wants to help where it is needed!!! Thank you SO MUCH Ruth!!!!!

Best groomer ever! Jesse expertly,professionally and gently groomed my 17 year old rescue mixed breed dog,Barnaby. Barnaby is a much loved member of our family and Jesse treated him as if he were her own dog! He is a bit frail at his senior age and Jesse was very gentle and understanding of his requirements. She is an expert and gave me professional advice on care for my dog's skin and coat. My dog was calm and comfortable during the entire grooming process. Barnaby and I are so glad to have met Jesse as our groomer and look forward to seeing her again!

Wonderful place for your pets. When you're on vacation, they are too! Claudia treats your pets as if they were her own. She gives them lot's of loving, playtime, and is a calming influence to soothe any nervousness your dog may have at first. While I usually bring my own food, after Claudia showed me what she provides her food won hands down. I can see why she has so many repeat customers.

Lisa did an amazing job watching my dog for one week at my house while I was traveling. She took extra time walking and playing with her twice a day and sent me a couple updates on how everything was going. Lisa not only cares about doing a good job but has a special love for animals. I definitely recommend hiring Lisa for pet sitting!

I can rest assured that Cheryl will show up and take our puppy out in the middle of the day. It is important to me that I can rely on her. She has a lot of experience with dogs and I trust her with mine. I plan on calling on her again to pet sit our puppy.

About

I've grown up with dogs in my family. I have helped train them, and I have taken classes in training them. Some of the breeds I used to own include rottweiler, poodle, German shepherd, golden retriever, mastiff, American bulldog, lab and jack Russell terrier. I enjoy walking dogs and taking them outside to play with them, so they can get some exercise and have some fun while doing so.

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.
