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.

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!

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.

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.

Christina and Tony are the best!! They care for your pet as if it was their own. Lots of love, belly rubs, walks, treats and everything else your furry friend needs while you're away, whether just at work or on vacation. The best part... you get pictures and texts of your pet so you know they're having fun while you're away. My dog LOVES them and goes crazy every time she sees them. What more can you ask for?! I highly recommend Woofs & Whiskers for all your pet care needs!!

Don't look any further! Peggy is just brilliant! Not only a great pet sitter but a lovely person. I have had many pet sitters in the past and I didn't know this kind of service was possible, she provides daily updates and cute pictures while we are away, she buys Rosita (a tiny chichi) yummy treats and gives her tons of love. She is so responsible, sweet, experienced (she has a big bunch of rescue pets herself) and caring that my dog misses her and of course she stops by once in a while to pet her and let her know she is still around. We feel very lucky to have her in our lives! :-)

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.

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.
