Lauren and Krystie have been amazing. Both are really sweet and very professional. I never had a dog walker before so naturally I was afraid in the beginning but they've been so great, that I now can go to work, knowing my dog is in good hands.

I found Suki through Thumbtack and couldn't be happier. I live in lower Manhattan and was struggling to find a reliable, qualified and reasonably priced dog walking service after my current walker for ~2 years moved to California. Suki is great to work with. She is flexible and conscious of both mine and Oakley's needs. She updates me on Oakley's walks and is very polite and caring. I couldn't have asked for a better person to take care of my pup when I can't be there. I highly recommend entrusting Suki with your pet care needs.

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!

I reached out to Josh for help because my dog would lash out at other dogs when we went for walks, hikes, etc. I was very pleased with his work! He arrived on time, earlier than expected, to really make sure I got the most out of my session. The quality of his work is very professional and you could tell he truly cares about helping you and your dog! He is very knowledgeable in numerous different behavioral issues, which was impressive. He taught me how to take control of my dog and now my dog is doing much better socially. Josh also responded to my emails in a timely mannner when I would have quick questions. I would highly recommend this service!!

Because my dog is old and gets sick with the kennel cough shot, I had not been able to get her groomed. When I found Ray & Fay who will come to your house. My dog was so matted and overgrown hair. They did a wonderful job. Fay was so good with my dog, who hates grooming. She did as good a job as any groomer to whom I've taken my dog. It was an excellent experience

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.

Verified review

There are a lot of dog walking companies out there, but I can assure you that none of them even come close to what Swifto provides. I personally love the dog walker I've been assigned to, who has a masters in animal behavior. I mean, how much better can it get? In addition, if he's ever sick, Swifto goes above and beyond to always make sure a replacement dog walker shows up in time. I really love their GPS system that tracks the dog walk live, and then sends me a photo at the end. Plus, as opposed to some of the other shady businesses out there, Swifto really has proper insurance, which I love about them. All in all, highly recommended, I wouldn't look anywhere else.

Aisha (the owner of Posh Pups JC) is my favorite dog walker. My dog is always as excited to see her as she is to see family members. I think that tells you something about the way Aisha is with dogs in order to get them to love her his much. She radiates a kind, caring and calm energy that puts dogs (and people) at ease. She's also great at accommodating my dog's special needs. BONUS: she posts cute photos of her clients' fur-babies on Instagram. I love that they're often smiling! :)

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.
