We had a last minute change of plans and needed to change the service requested. Kristine and company were more than accommodating and provided a great solution for us. Vincent did a great job with the balloon animals. He was wonderful engaging the kids.

She really enjoys what's she doing and that translates into a positive, productive experience for my dog and me! She also had good practical tips for dealing with puppy issues. We are having great results.

I was dog-sitting for a friend for 11 days and Krystie was a life-saver. She came promptly every night for the "last" walk - was sweet and kind. The best was that she was extremely reliable. A great find! Highly recommend using her services.

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.

Marc has proven to be very reliable and always prepared for any emergency ... such as a missing leash. He sends me photos and keeps me informed on my pet's wellbeing. I love knowing that my dog is able to enjoy the fresh air and get some exercise during the day. When I get home, he is notably content. I would highly recommend Marc.

Kyle and Alanna were awesome with our dog! We were gone for the weekend and we have never left our dog for that long before. I was honestly a nervous wreck the first day, but after getting great reports and photos back from them after each visit, my worrying stopped. Darla, our dog, also seemed very happy with the experience! We will be using them again! (Just asked them to come by another day this week!)

Today was the first time I met Steve in my home. I feel very confident that he has the ability to help teach me to be the best dog owner I can be! I demonstrated my dog running off the porch and down the walkway with me while he was on a leash. I also shared a video of my dog biting at me while trying to get him inside. I'm looking forward to our training classes and am anxious to get started.

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.

My dog Trouble gets walked by Eli from Dawn of Dogs. Trouble is always excited to get walked by him, I provide bags and he always cleans my dog's paws when he gets back. He's always on time and also reliable for when I can't do night walks with Trouble. Eli has been great with Trouble and handling his walks, he gives feedback and when I'm not at home he lets me know pick up and drop off. I recommend him my dog is a rescue he has some antisocial behaviors with other dogs and Eli has been able to work greatly with that and give Trouble hour walks even time at the dog park. I'm happy with the dog walking service.

BFDW is my dog's best friend! She is very shy. Since she has been going to BFDW and staying overnight, she has grown more comfortable with other dogs. I always have s good feeling leaving my sweet dog, sometimes for a whole weekend. SARANN BENNETT. NYC

Adene was great! Our cat requires medication twice daily on a fairly strict timetable. Adene was completely reliable and sent us a picture and text every time she went to feed him so we wouldn't worry. If you need someone to look after your cat, I would not hesitate to recommend Adene.

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.
