Carol has trained two of our dogs as puppies. Our second dog was a little more difficult to handle and really needed the training. Carol was always a phone call away to answer questions or help out when needed. As a result we have two very well behaved good dogs!! Most definitely worth the money!! I would recommend her to train every dog!!

Justina is amazing when we need a pet sitter we will only hire her! Our animals were so happy and well taken care of!


I will walk your dogs and take good care of them. I am retired. I also have two dogs of my own and I love them very much. This would be a good job for me.


I do both dog walking and dog sitting (out of home). I have been helping a SUNY New Paltz professor for two years with her large yellow lab. I am free after 3:30 PM from Monday-Thursday, all day on Friday and Saturday, and free on Sunday morning and evening.


I love walking dogs. I'm a big dog lover, and I love to play fetch with dogs. I love to feed and water dogs.


What makes us great is that we love dogs, and we have a passion for making people happy! I have two little boys at home and two dogs as well.


I have been a pet enthusiast and dog owner since childhood. I walk dogs, care for cats, give shots and administer medicine to pets, and of course, play with them!

I walk dogs a couple streets over. I walk dogs for about 15 minutes. I charge $3 for one dog, $5 for two dogs and $7 for three dogs. I can walk after school almost every day. I will travel about a half mile.


I like to walk dogs. I want to work locally. I live in Northville, NY. Thank you for your interest. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more details.


Unlike some competitors, I treat my dogs like humans not numbers. Willing to do free evaluations and demo my training methods for free I'm willing to customize and tailor my training to your needs! I'm very big on customer service, communication and assuring you that your dog is in amazing hands!


I make dog walks easy for dogs by teaching them how to walk comfortably with a person. The owner is required to supply gentle leader harness for their dog, so they can enjoy the walk experience as much as the walker!

Here in Albany, I operate a small independent affordable dog walking business. I travel to the client's house, let the pet(s) out, feed, walk, etc.


Many people train their pets, or at least attempt to. But I go beyond that. I love dogs and want to do what I can to make living with them as easy as I can. A lot of people get frustrated because their dog pulls to much when they walk them, or because it won't learn to sit or lay down. I want to alieviate that frustration. I have trained many dogs, both my own and friends and they are amazed. When new people come over and see how many tricks/commands my dogs know and how well behaved they are they say how shocked they are. I own large dogs and I always get people that are scared because of their size. I promise them that they will do nothing other than sniff you, lick you, and wait for you to pet them. By the end of the evening, most want to take them home. I enjoy working with dogs, so I don't see it as a job that needs to be done, but a job that yes, needs to be done, but that I love every minute doing.

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.

    My dog is a pitbull boxer mix. He is around 50lbs. He loves people and is a great walker. The one thing I really struggle with him about is his interaction with other dogs. He barks and is aggressive. It is something I continue to work on with him. He is 1 year and 4 months old.
