Susan took care of my dog, Riggins, for several hours once a week up until I moved out of Philly. Each week I'd come home to a happy and tired dog as well as a long note detailing all of the adventures that Riggins had been on with Susan - long walks, dog park visits, meeting other dogs, and more. Susan treated Riggins like she'd treat her own dog and the peace of mind that came with that was priceless. I'd highly recommend Susan's pet care services!

We love working with Sal and Jessica and their trainers-in-training! Our dog used to be a terrible fear biter and we were afraid to do anything with her. Now she's confident, we're confident, and we don't live in constant fear of dog bites. We're so happy with the progress our dog has made in a relatively short amount of time, she's much more obedient and we can actually enjoy having her. Sal and Jessica are always available to answer questions or help with any problems that come up during the week, and all the trainers are very organized and attentive during training sessions. We highly recommend K-9 Services Unlimited to anyone!

My dog was the very first dog that Lori groomed when she opened. I have been going to her every since. My dogs love her. She is kind and loving with the dogs. I have nothing but great things to say about her and her grooming salon. She does a wonderful job grooming them. Her prices are reasonable.

I am not certified or anything but I know dogs pretty well. I have owned many. I have had dogs with anxiety and anger problems. I have taken in stray dogs that have been abused and neglected. I am very patient and try the best I can. I own two Pit Bulls and a Rottweiler mix. They listen so well; it was hard at first but it paid off in the end.

Unless a client specifies no furniture, we welcome your pup to join us on the couch for nap times. Our cat Katie might also say hello, she is great with other dogs but does get intimated by large dogs for about an hour or so until they settle in. Our electric blue crayfish Clarance and our other fish tanks have proven to be great pup tv.

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.
