For the first time ever, I had to leave my dog and cat for vacation and did not have a friend or family member available to care for them. I was very nervous to hire someone I didn't know to watch my animals. As soon as I met Deb, I knew that my pets were in good hands and I did not need to worry. She sent me updates to let me know how they were doing. My dog is picky with who he likes and he loves Deb so I will definitely continue to use her services in the future! Outstanding job, thank you Deb!!!

Chalisse is so awesome with our dog, Layla, that I honestly think she is disappointed to see us return home. It is so nice to know that she is well taken care of in the surroundings she is familiar with. With the amount of attention she receives while we are away, it is like a vacation for Layla too.

I found Nicole very professional. We had a meet and greet at no cost and my dog warmed up to Nicole and Emily with no problems. I know I will enjoy them along with my dog. I have already recommended Bella's to a friend.

Lorie watched our dogs on numerous occasions. She is a loving, trustworthy and reliable petsitter with a true love of animals. Anyone would be lucky to have her watch their furry friends.

I have used Mind Your Paws several times for dog sitting and a few times for training (basic behavior and "manners"). Dimitri has a great connection with dogs and is very effective. Great service at a very reasonable price.


I will walk your dog if you need to and play and pick up after them. I love animals and care for them.


I love working with dogs. I have five years of experience working will all sorts of different breeds. I am currently looking for some extra work over the summer and would love to take your dog or dogs for some fun walks!


I'm non-professional but very successful with training dogs. I teach house-breaking, obedience, being family-friendly, and fixing the pets behavior. Please contact me if interested!


I provide house cleaning, gardening, dog walking, giving dogs baths, making sure they have food and water. Anything to help your day go by a little easier.


I'll walk your dogs and I'll feed them too. I've been trying to start this business for a while. Call me for times and dates.


Super Dog Walkers are the best. We provide treats and health drinks and nothing but the best for your dogs. Walking is very important for all breeds.


I'm a dog walker, and I provide pet care because I love animals. I love spending my time with them. I'd like to make new animal friends.


What makes me stand out from others is that I am a new trainer with new techniques to help teach your dog to be the best he/she could be for you. What makes me stand out in pet sitting is that I love and care for my customers' pets as if they were my own pets and care for their homes as if they were my own. I may be new to both of these industries, but my love and compassion for both of them is as strong as can be.


If you need someone to walk your dogs, that's me. I can walk dogs, babysit and do anything you need. I'm an animal lover looking to expand my dog walking business. I'm well experienced with animals, especially dogs and cats, and have had years of experience.


My work is different for other people's work who do the same thing as me. I grew up with 3 dog's and have loved each one very much until they passed from old age. I now currently take care of one dog who I absolutely love. Her name is Stella Dora. She was abandoned and abused and her owner and I have been working with Stella and getting her used to people again. It was a success! I take her on car rides to the beaches and parks and sometimes even when i'm not working I take her. Some animal caretakers just let the dog out to go to the bathroom and feed them and then leave. I, on the other hand, am very active with dogs.


I do floors, bathrooms, rooms and whole house, but if you need me for something else, let me know. I can also walk your dog.

I am very unique and i wont let you down .


I have had training at Lollipop Farms for 4 years in animal care. Dogs are my favorite and I love to walk them. If your dog is in need of exercise and you don't have the time or the physical ability to walk them, your problem is solved. Just contact Elly's Dog Walking Service, where your dog's happiness is my priority.


I don't have a business; I am working for myself. I have a great love for dogs, and I enjoy spending time with them. This may not be what you were asking for, but I would really appreciate an opportunity.

I love animals and am an animal advocate. I have been a companion to dogs and cats for more than 20 years.

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.
