Jenn was walking our dogs for a few years. Unfortunately, we had to move out of Manhattan just a few weeks ago. The dogs really loved her!!! Jenn's ability to communicate and control our dogs was amazing!!! No one else could have done it like Jenn. She was caring, trustworthy and made any efforts to meet our changed needs. We highly recommend Jenn/Flipz Pet Care to everyone.

Jessica is absolutely fantastic. And my pup definitely viewed her as an authority figure from the moment she walked into the apartment. In just two sessions of examining how my pup and I interact and how we interact with the neighborhood on walks, I witnessed great improvement in how he respects me and the leash. She helped me see the importance/benefits of tweaking my relationship with my pup from being "play pals" to being a "team." And the importance of Team Work when out walking on the leash in New York City. Jessica also helped me better understand the cleanest/clearest way to call my pup so he would come to me every time. We are definitely closer to being able to run around off-leash at the park thanks to her!

Gus has just started walking my dog this week during the day while I'm at work. My dog is shy and within a couple of sessions, he warmed up to Gus and now he wags his tail when he hears him at the door. I am very pleased with Gus' service.

I hired Chris and his team for dog walking. My schedule can vary from day to day depending on my workload and traveling back home from NYC make it almost impossible to get back in time to walk my furbaby. Not only is Chris professional, but you can see he honestly loves what he does. He treats my little one as if she is his own and puts my mind completely at ease. I come home to a happy and tired pup every time, as well as a report of what she did or did not do on her walk. Even if I text him with any last minute adjustments, Chris is able to make it happen and I honestly could not be any happier.

Kristian has been walking my Goldendoodle Penny for two weeks now and he's so great! this is my first experience with a dog walker, so I was a little nervous, but Kristian came to do a meet and greet and was happy to answer any and all of my many questions. He's super thoughtful and thorough and I love the picture update after every walk.

Love my Rover walker, Stephanie! She really loves dogs and takes care of mine as if he were her own. Receiving the photos from the walk each day gives me peace of mind knowing that my dog is well cared for and happy while I'm at work.

Brian has been walking our dog, Scrappy, for about a year now. He's fantastic! He updates us after every walk. On the one or two occasions where he's come in to find Scrappy had gotten sick, he's called us immediately and was even willing to drop her off at the vet's office, rather than wait for us to get home and take her. We very highly recommend Brian Pizza.

Julia has been an amazing help to me. She is very professional and provides the care that my dog needs. I have a very active 1.5 year old husky mix who loves being outside, running around and getting as much attention as possible and Julia provides all of these services and more to my dog. After coming home from a long day at work and having my dog be more relaxed and happy is such a relief to me. I highly recommend Julia and her services to anyone who is looking.

Wag's dog walking service is a life saver! Not only are the dog walkers awesome but the app lets me book walks last minute! I use walk almost every week when I'm running late to get home to walk my little Oliver! I know exactly when the walker arrives, when the walk starts and how the walk went right from the app!

We have been utilizing Camille's dog walking services for our two Maltese, Freud and Pavlov, in New Rochelle since April 2014. Camille is reliable, communicative, effective, clearly has a passion for dogs, and can handle our Freud (who can have aggressive moments). The dogs love their walks with her, and are always exhausted upon their return! We are very comfortable with Camille caring for our boys, and highly recommend her!

Michelle was so professional and friendly. She explained how each day would be structured for my dog and sent me videos of him following commands. There is a considerable improvement after one week. Our shiba Inu is quite stubborn but Michelle has got rid of some of his bad behaviors. I have already booked my dog in for a two week stay next year when I am away overseas. I would highly recommend Michelle!

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.
