Jerrie was a pet sitter for my chihuahua Milo for years. She also would even house sit for me, and take care of him and my home when I was out of town. She was so patient with him despite him taking a long time to warm up to new people, he bonded with her right away. Jerrie is so natural with animals and such a kind and caring person. She goes above and beyond to send you updates, pictures, and even keeps a detailed notebook about how your dog does each time she dog sits and what activities they do (walking, playing, feeding). I trusted her completely to care for my dog and would recommend her to anyone looking for a caring, reliable and responsive pet sitter.

I got a call within an hour of sending an email to set up a free consultation! We just got a new rescue dog that desperately needs some basic obedience training. During our consultation, she had a bunch treats and toys for our two dogs to play with. She explained the way they like to do their training as well as tips and tricks for my immediate behavioral concerns. She was so flexible with scheduling our future appointments. We are so lucky to have found Canine Revival, and will be continuing training with them in the future.

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.

Shanna is wonderful- she and her sidekick Harvey have done so much for my sweet rescue dog Betty. Betty came with a pure sweet spirit and lots of fears. Walking with Shanna and Harvey has given her so much confidence and fun. Instead of cowering around other dogs she now fully engages with them and has learned how to play. So for us-Shanna has been a dog walker and dog therapist! I highly recommend her service.

Amanda was able to give me sound, effective advice on how to work with my dog to reduce his suspicions about almost anyone who approaches our home. She has given me the confidence to put the techniques to work. I expect positive results that will please both me and dog.

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.

Roxanne is amazing! She has worked so diligently with our family and our puppy's needs. Any problem we were having, she had a way to address it. The best part is, it works!! She has a miracle solution for every instance. Roxanne is always willing to listen and do what is best for the family and the dog. Her techniques are easy to follow and always positive! She has reassured our family that we are making progress and are doing what is best for our puppy. We have seen wonderful changes in our puppy and are excited to continue to work with Roxanne. :)

Jenny has been caring for our four furbabies for over a month now. She is easy to work with, very thorough and accommodating to our changing schedule. My cats and dog love to have her to come and play with them. She leaves notes for us everyday to let us know how the visit went.

Michelle has been there for our family since the day we met her over a year ago. Our family has since grown to 2 dogs and she has taken on the additional responsibility of a new puppy like a champ! She obviously loves dogs and they love her. She consistently sends us updates after each visit and we also enjoy the photos of our little "kiddos" that she sends. It's so nice to have someone we trust to take care of our dogs, as they are our family. Michelle not only ensures they are taken care of, she gives them love like they are family to her as well. We are lucky to have her!

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.

Alex has taken care of my english mastiff mix many times. The dog adores him. ALex has experience with large breeds, so he is not intimidated by their rambunctiousness and has a gentle firmness that the dog responds to very well. Besides, Alex is great to work with on the people side as far as communication and professional attitude. i highly recommend Alex for dog walking and dog sitting jobs.

    Jenny gives my dogs (which I treat as my children) the best care possible every time I call upon her to be there to provide care for them. I believe what makes Jenny the best is she has pets of her own and treats all pets under her care as if they were hers. I started using her to watch my pets at my home where she would stop in 3 times daily and it has now progressed for my longer trips to where she watches them at her home conveniently located in Golden Valley which has ample space and a beautiful large fenced back yard for my dogs to play in. A+ rating and I highly recommend using Jenny for your dog/cat care needs.

    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.
