Neeve did an excellent job with my dog. We began to see a change in his demeanor almost immediately. She was extremely positive and worked with me to come up with a realistic plan for my dog. We discussed followup visits and training. She worked around my schedule. I highly recommend Neeve and her dog training skills.

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!!

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 was prompt, courteous, and caring with my pup! My dog took to him right away and felt very safe and happy in his presence. We look forward to using more of Kristian’s services, as our standards are set with what we look for in a dog walker. If you’ve found Kristian, look no further!

Erin is the only one we turn to when we need someone to look after our boys. One of our cats hides every time the door bell rings and does not like to see any visitors but when Erin comes to take care of them he greats her at the door. I highly recommend Erin to watch over your fur baby's cat or dog. Thank you Erin!

Olga is party of our family in Westport. She has helped me and my wife tremendously raise our two awesome pups. We got them at 8 weeks old and started working with Olga when they just started to learn how to walk outside on the leash. She taught them both the basics tricks of sitting and giving paw because she spends so much time with them. She even worked through all the different types of food to try until we found what they enjoyed the most She is very patient and has the biggest heart in the world and cares as much about them as if they were her own. That was the most important characteristic my wife and I were looking for when selecting a dog walker for our pups. I don't trust them with anyone but my immediate family and Olga. They also love her and are excited to see her everyday. Olga has been walking the dogs for us twice a day for over 3 years. She is very trustworthy , reliable, and flexible on times and often willing to make changes work in our schedules that are often unpredictable with our jobs. She will come late hours or really early if need be, she will stay over for nights or weekend when we are traveling and cant bring the dogs with us. With her background working at a vet she is also very familiar and reliable with administering medicine if need be, taking them to the vet, doing nail trimming and helping with the right groomer. She is very knowledgable about dogs and i feel like I am always learning something new about them from her. She is fabulous and I highly recommend her to anyone considering working with her

Giacomo is a wonderful trainer! We got a rescue dog who was a stray and as first time dog owners he was very helpful in helping us train our pup (and train ourselves to be consistent!). Our dog, Wrigley also *loved* Giacomo and looked forward to his visit every week. Giacomo used only positive reinforcement training and was kind and patient. Highly recommend!

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!

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.
