Knowing I was going to need someone to take care of my five dogs and cat after eye surgery, I needed someone I could completely rely on. Libby was available whenever I needed her. She came over and took my dogs outside a few times each day even though I was home. I was unable to bend over or lift anything over 15 lbs. She took them in the yard, ran them around, fed them, got them water and lots of petting. Two have special needs with their eyes (runs in the family) and she made sure they were clean and medicated. Not sure what I would have done without I could count on. My dogs were relaxed and slept with me most of the time, they were content even though Mommy couldn't take care of them. Thanks Libby, you really went above and beyond for me. It is great knowing you have someone you can count on for your furbabies.

Cheyenne has been amazing! We are so lucky to have found her. My dog is very skittish around most people, but he warmed up to her in no time. She just has a natural ability to connect with animals. She has also been so dependable and flexible with her schedule. Trust me, If you're searching for someone for your your furry little family members, do yourself a favor and just stop wasting your time.

We left our two Lab mixes in Nancy's care for a weekend. Before we dropped them off, Nancy took the time to talk to me on the phone and answered all of my questions! She really seemed to understand dogs and their behavior when they are left in the care of someone else. She sent me an update while we were away as well. I loved that she lived right by a park and said she would take my dogs out there for a walk!

Love love love!!! Left my puppy with Bonnie over the Christmas break and it was a fantastic choice! I was able to meet Bonnie and her family before hand and ease my mind about leaving my furbaby during the holiday! I'd recommend her over and over. Amazing care and very reasonable prices! Thanks Bonnie!

Tom arrived on time, and my dog, Bud seemed to take right to him. Tom leaned down to scratch behind his ears, and they were friends for life. Bud had his first time in the snow when Tom was around. Unfortunately Bud has passed on, but having Tom take care of him meant a lot.

He enjoyed taking care of my dog, Peanut. Tom took her for walks, fed her and played with her in the house. Peanut likes to see Tom come through the door.

    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.
