I have a 160lb. dog. He is a very good boy and we love, but has learned he is stronger than us which made it impossible to take with us. I went one line to find a professional trainer to help us. Within a very short time I heard from Dawn and made arrangements for her to come to our house. In less than an hour She showed us both how to get our dog to walk with us totally under control. There was no harsh treatment and no yanking or pulling. I cannot say enough good about her methods and the understanding about how a dog's mind works. Thank you Dawn, now our big guy can go places with us.

Peppy Pets takes amazing care of our new rescue pup! We use them for regular dog walking while we are work. They offer GPS check-in to let you know when they arrive and when they leave. And they provide a visit report which helps us keep tabs on our pup's activities. They are also available last-minute if we get stuck at work or if we need them to visit our pup earlier than scheduled. Additionally, they've given us great advice on the (many) questions we have as new puppy parents. Having Peppy Pets gives us peace of mind to know our dog is well cared for while we are at work!

I run a dog training business ( and at any one time can have up to 3 dozen dogs in my facility. Ellie has shown great care with larger dogs and smaller, calm and anxiety ridden, long and short haired. She took time to familiarize herself with each and do a wonderful job caring for them. I'd hire Ellie again in a heart beat. For my dogs or my clients' needs. Thanks, Ellie!

Our dog, Stella, loves Lynnette and so do we! Lynnette does more than just walk Stella- she really treats her like she was her own pup. I feel so lucky that we have Lynnette. She is prompt, reliable, and great with all pets. I highly recommend Furball Friends for all of your pet care needs- from dog walking and cat sitting to even overnight stays. Thank you Lynnette for all that you do!

We left our old Great Dane under Teacher's Pets' care for the weekend. Emily was great - she and her team flipped over the 125-lb dog, cleaned her, kept her fed, and cuddled her by the front door before dragging her back on her bed to the original spot! We came home and there was no mess to clean, medicine was properly administered and we received a visit summary with photos! Highly recommend Emily and her team! Will definitely use again.

Shelayne and her family are amazing! She is very professional and treats your fur babies as if they are her own. She has a genuine excitement every time she visits and always sends you pictures of your pet during the visit. I’ve always enjoyed getting a picture of my dog while I’m at work. She’s very knowledgeable about animals and also trustworthy to come into your home. I would highly recommend her!!

LeighAnn always does the best job pet sitting for me while I am gone. She sends pictures and updates. She always goes above and beyond and exceeds my expectations when she cares for my 3 dogs and 2 cats. I love that she travels to me so my dogs never have to leave their safe space. She does her very best to accommodate all of my pets needs and has the best pricing in the area. I have never had any worries about her being in my house. She is very trustworthy and I will continue to use her and refer her for all pet sitting needs.

    Very knowledgeable. I have a little dog that pulls and I have a bad back. Christine brought her own leash for pulling dogs and is teaching me how to walk with that leash. She is like a dog walker and trainer all in one .

    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.
