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. 

Reviews for New Rochelle dog walkers

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!

I started working with Camille when I moved to New Rochelle and she was instrumental in my dog's transition, and mine. Camille was so flexible - she walks my dog (and leaves a note afterwards) and is flexible if I work late and need a second walk. She also takes her overnight when I'm not home, and does pick-up & drop-off, which is so convenient. All this and her prices are very competitive. Highly recommend.

Madeline is great. She's been walking my dog for six months and I couldn't be happier with her service. I have a very flexible schedule and Madeline is always able to accommodate me. I recommended her to a neighbor who also uses her regularly. Give her a shot. You won't be disappointed.

John and his team are super friendly, professional and great with my dog! I have a goldendoodle and she is super high energy. It takes a lot to tire her out, but John manages to do so with his walks. I am super grateful that I found him through Thumbtack and would highly recommend him!

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.
