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!)

I learned of Jill on thumbtack and she's only been walking our dogs for a short time. That being said, Jill is lovely, reliable, and very flexible in her schedule. I also spoke to her references who only had great things to say about her. I thrilled to have learned of Jill through your website.

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!!

We found Chris, after being frustrated with chain dog walking services. Chris and his team have been a breathe of fresh air. Our dog Summer has lots of energy and they really went above and beyond to make sure she was able to run and play everyday. We also have used barkstown for boarding and we were so happy and at peace with that decision. They sent photos and updates and summer was always so happy when she had to drive away with Chris. I am so sad we are moving and we can't take the whole barks town team with us. We will truly miss the Barkstown team!

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.

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!

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!

Aisha was really good with Chloe! Our regular dog walker was on vacation for about 2 weeks and we got Aisha’s services. She was on time and took pictures of Chloe during her walk. When we had questions by text whether our dog pooped or peed for that walk, she was very responsive. It was a very pleasant experience and we hope we can get more of her services in the future.

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.
