I wish there were 10 stars for Tina! I am so happy I chose her from all the professionals referred to us. We hired Tina for 12 days for dog walking only as my 82 year old mother was actually house sitting. When we left, we had no idea a winter storm was on the way. Tina went above and beyond - she actually stayed 4 days with my mom so that she did not have twalk him in the snow and continued to take excellent care of him as if he were one of her own. What a blessing she was to us. If anyone is in need of this service, do not hesitate to hire this dependable, thoughtful, and capable lady. She is one of a kind!

I am so happy I went with Leashlife as my dog walker. My dog loves getting the extra attention and I never have to worry about him while I am at work. They leave notes and give updates on a regular basis, I would recommend them to anyone. I also love seeing their Instagram post of their other dogs they are all adorable and happy!

We've had great experiences with Happy Tailz! Very trustworthy, caring and professional which gives me the peace of mind when traveling. I have a 6 year old Labradoodle who gets anxiety when left alone or at a kennel. I can tell she is well taken care of by Melody because I come home to a happy and health dog. I would highly recommend Happy Tailz to anyone looking for a pet sitter and/or dog walker.

We were so pleased with how things went when we left our dogs in Laura's care! I appreciated how she visited beforehand to meet them, and how she took detailed notes on everything. One of our dogs tends to be very anxious and I could tell that he felt totally comfortable and safe while in Laura's care. She really is a compassionate professional who listens - I highly recommend her services!

NNF took care of our two dogs. She played with them and fed and cared for them for a long weekend. She was totally professional and trustworthy. She even transported a stray we were caring for to a shelter for us. She went the extra mile and monetarily, I did not pay as much as I would have if I had boarded the dog at the vet's office. I will definitely call Cris again to care for our pets. I don't see how she could improve on any aspect of her business. Thanks Cris!!!

Terry is awesome! We've hired her a few times to house sit and pet sit and we couldn't be happier. We have a house in a transitional neighborhood with an alarm, house plants, a garden, a cat and a dog and she manages everything beautifully. She is responsible, easy to work with and super affordable (charge more Terry!). She is clean and respectful while staying at our house, we really don't see any evidence that she was even there. She gives our home and pets special attention while we are away and keeps notes day by day that are fun to read upon our return. I would highly recommend Terry to anyone who is looking for peace of mind while on vacation and someone that will really take excellent care of the fur babies especially and your home.

Stephanie was fantastic with our dog and I would highly recommend her! She was very diligent and flexible when our trip had to adjust last minute and our dog seemed to really enjoy her time with her. If you are looking for someone who will care for your pets as their own, Stephanie is an excellent selection! She even sent us photos while we were away. Thank you for your care with our pup!

    Stephanie is without a doubt the perfect pet sitter!! She’s responsible, friendly, loves dogs and her background as a vet technician is a major plus! She’s a great dog mom and will treat yours as if they were her own!


    I'm a college student looking for a job. I own two dogs, and I am good with animals. I get along with animals.


    We offer reliable, trusted pet sitting and dog walking services for the Charlotte, N.C. area. Pets enjoy staying in their own home while you are away. A trusted pet sitter allows you the freedom to travel without worry.


    I am a responsible guy who loves animals. I can also walk other animals if requested and take care of them if needed.


    I do professional dog grooming. I offer only top care and quality for all fur babies. I am trained and certified through Petsmart Academy.


    I develop a personal relationship with the animals. It isn't just a part time job.


    I do a little bit of everything. I also clean houses, walk doggies and house-sit for the doggies. I have references if needed, and I would love to help you out.


    I will take care of dogs while the owner is out. I will be cleaning after the pets and bathing pets. I just need a small description of your pet, so I will know how to handle him/her.

    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.
