Jerrie is a wonderful pet sitter. We have used her numerous times to stay at our house and also come in the middle of the day to walk our dog. She writes down how your pet is doing in her care and takes good care of your house. My dog really likes her too!!! I feel comfortable having her stay in our house while we are out of town. I highly recommend Jerrie for your pet sitting needs!

Working with Rita has been a phenomenal experience. She is professional, knowledgeable, but more than that she is an excellent instructor. You explain what you need and she has a resolution. Rita makes training easy. She makes sure you know how to work with your dog. Her hands on training gives you the knowledge and confidence to continue training. Both you and your dog will benefit from working with Rita. It’s reward based and fun. Don’t worry if you’re not getting it Rita is a phone call away. Her time with you is not just a schedule and we’ll talk about it on your next visit. She is there in between to guide you. I can not say enough about this remarkable woman and Canine Revival.

Debra often took care of our dog and cat when we were away from home. She would not only ensure that they were properly feed and watered, but she made sure the litter box was cleaned on a regular basis. Debra is also invaluable to observing abnormal symptoms in animals. A couple of times she notified us of an ailment in our pets and we were able to expedite treatment. She is also a very caring person who a trust. She has no malice towards anyone. If you have a chance to hire her, you will not regret it.

Mandy was amazing with my German Shepherd Thor! We worked on walking on a leash and allowing people to enter the home without Thor loosing his mind. It was such a great session and I learned sooo much. I would not hesitate to have her back out when I have other needs with my dogs. Thanks Mandy!!

I have never left my dogs with anyone but family. After Karen came over for an interview (?) I was impressed with how much my two dogs liked her and wanted to crowd around her. She has stayed with them twice and the first time I admit I thought about the dogs some, but when I returned they were totally happy and I had no reservations about the second time -felt totally comfortable and had no worries. I like the way she leaves notes to tell me how the dogs were and acted. My little Cairn Terrier even set by her during the last visit which is unusual for her. I had her come over 4 times a day to feed, let out and walk my dogs. I have recommended her to a couple of my friends. Would have been above perfect if the yard had been picked up of the waste when she had the dogs out in the yard, but did not ask her to do this nor do i know of anyone who does. I would be willing to recommend her to anyone. I totally believe in Playful Paw Pet Care Services.

Tonisa was fantastic! We are homebodies so don't have to worry about leaving our dog, but we had the opportunity to go out of the country and I had to find someone to take care of my dog. I found Tonisa through a Google search. We emailed a couple of times and I met her once. My dog instantly liked her and so did I. Tonisa stayed at our house and took care of my dog for 12 days. I trusted her totally! There were no problems, she kept me updated on day to day activities and my house was just as clean when I got home as when I left. I highly recommend Tonisa if you want to leave your precious pet at home instead of having to put them in a kennel.

Ali from At Home Pet Care came into our home twice a day to care for our dog and two cats. She had to give medicine to the dog, feed the animals, walk the dog and bring in the mail. She left notes every day, left the kitchen quite clean and our animals were in great shape when we returned. One of the cats is pretty skittish and previous times, we have heard that the pet sitter hasn't seen much of him. Ali was able to entice Bilbo out of hiding and even pet him - I was surprised and grateful that she took the time to work at that. We are thrilled with At Home Pet Care's service and recommend them highly!

I met Melissa today to discuss walking my 2 dogs. 1 dog was anxious & calmed down after a few minutes. The other dog immediately positively responded to Melissa. I think the dog walking will go well!

Paw Print is a fantastic business. I often tell people about the wonderful care they have given my dogs. They take their time on visits, giving each dog a good walk and personal attention. They communicate with a note each day, and contact me if they have a question or concern. My dogs look forward to their visit from Paw Prints, and it takes the pressure off of me to have them available when I need them.

Sally was very nice to work with and my dog Lucy enjoyed working with her too. Lucy liked to jump up a lot and Sally taught us techniques that showed results right away. She had great tips and suggestions on how to care for her. We plan to hire Sally if Lucy ever needs care while we are out of town.

My elderly cat, Phoebe, was diagnosed with kidney disease just 2 weeks before I was scheduled to be out of town with my entire family for a week. Her behavior was changing, she had just started needing bi-weekly subcutaneous fluids, and she was touch-and-go in the days leading up to my trip, so I was very stressed out about leaving her. I took Mary Jo up on her offer to stay the night with Phoebe each night while I was gone and also check in on her each afternoon. Mary Jo came by a couple of days before my departure and took in the volumes upon volumes of information I had for her about everything there was to know about Phoebe and her many needs. She took notes to make sure she remembered everything. :) While I was gone, Mary Jo sent me texts each night to update me on how things were going, which allowed me to relax and enjoy my time away with my family. And Phoebe did very well while I was gone! Even though she's a self-described dog person, Mary Jo is a conscientious and skilled animal lover who is totally comfortable with caring for a special-needs kitty like mine. I definitely recommend her to anybody who needs to find someone they can trust with their beloved little critters while they travel.

I am over the moon with the quality of care I have received from Alex and Marea. They are professional, dependable, reliable and take great care with my three dogs. They feed and walk my dogs Mon-Fri.. transport them to daycare when requested and contact me with concerns or suggestions, which I greatly appreciate.. I could not ask for more. They are very kind, friendly and loving people.

I am a huge dog lover, looking to help out dog owners, while making some new furry friends in the process!

I will take your dog for a walk, go to the dog park, or just play with them for a minimum of an hour.

About

I will come to walk your dog daily and weekly. I will enjoy (and the pups will, too) walking with more than one dog. I love dogs (and cats, of course), and they love me. I am very nurturing and wise at the same time. Each special pet has his/her own special personality and needs.

I would love to make your dog feel like they're on vacation while you're on vacation. I have a large fenced area in backyard for playtime and love going on walks with trails close by. They would get all the love and pampering as if they were my own!

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.
