My dog is 13 years old and we couldn't have had a better dog groomer that was sensitive to the needs of our golden retriever. We will call her back again soon and look forward to the appointment.

Christine Stratakos is a delight. She helped train my extremely stubborn mini dachshund puppy. Thanks to Christine my dog learned the basic of puppy training sit,come,etc. Not only that but when we expressed our concern that the puppy showed fear towards other dogs she accompanied us to the dog park to help in socializing the dog. Christine is a great trainer and all around good person

I am very happy with the care that Michelle gave Zoey while my wife and I were on vacation. Zoey hasn't been around other dogs much and I was happy that she got to interact with other dogs Michelle was caring for. I want to recommend Michelle and "Paw" Vider for anyone who is looking for there pet to have a well rounded experience of great care. Thanks again Michelle for taking care of Zoey while we were gone

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!

Dog' Gone workout is a great atmosphere for dogs to socialize and play. They have plenty of room to run around and exercise. Delia is amazing with the dogs and she is a great trainer. I have been brining my dog Zeus there for several months now and his behavior has improved significantly.

    Kaleigh pet sat my 2 small dogs for 2 weeks while I was away. She did an outstanding job! I don't usually like to leave the dogs for a long period of time but wasnt able to bring them. My dogs requiring quite a bit of care, so I was a little nervous but Kaleigh took such good care of them. They took to her so fast which isnt normal for them. I came home to 2 very happy pups! She is such an animal lover! I would recommend her to everyone!

    Hello, I work through (see website link to book) I'm Jessica and my pups' names are Nova (3 year old Dalmatian) and Maya (4 month old Rottie/Fox Hound mix).

We have a 3 acre yard perfect for adventures, and we will be constantly adding dog friendly yard features for a more enriched play area. Rainy or cold outside? Not a problem here, We have a giant garage made for play time! ( see video to see pups playing in the space ) Every dog can be a lap dog here, Nova certainty is! 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. I am home 24/7 so there is always time for playing, walks, exciting games, practicing tricks and we have a lot of things to sniff and explore!

She is a Fox Hound/Rottie mix who is enjoying socializing with new friends. She is doing fabulously with play time manners and is a sturdy puppy (30lbs!) . Maya also knows to get out of the way when play time gets overwhelming. We have the space to separate pups when they need a break.


    I do not have only one rate for animals. I believe that every animal should have the best care, so I set up a side fund for people who cannot afford my standard rate. I love meeting new pets. I hope to become a veterinarian, so my work here helps me understand more breeds and species.

    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. 

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
