Josh the Window Cleaner ---- WOW, are we ever glad we found him and using Thumbtack to find him was such a blessing. This young man was absolutely, positively the best we could have gotten to do our windows, which are probably some of the most difficult and cumbersome. But the job he did is amazing and we now can look through the windows and actually see without thinking we have to clean our glasses. He was on time, very thorough, very clean and did a terrific job. Our windows sparkle and shine and I even worry about forgetting they are closed and now walking into them. Seriously, we had windows on all of our outside walls - yes, every one of them - and he got each and every one sparkling clean -- no matter how hard I tried on my own, there is no way I could do even half as good as he did. A super professional, very speedy and helpful, and we look forward to using him in the future. You will not be disappointed with his work. To be exact, he was on time (actually a little early) and it took him about 2 hrs. to do a 3,000 sq. ft. home. He even went over and above the original stuff and did a few extras. No mess, no fuss, just great work. Could not have done better. Barb & Ed in Aurora, OH

Shelly, of Tailwaggers Dog Walking & Pet Sitting, gets 8-paws way up in the air from my two dogs, Olympia and Ramona. My dogs adore her ... I can tell because when I get home after a night of "Shelly-wagger's visits" my grrrrrlz run around the house searching for their 2nd mom. Shelly leaves incredibly descriptive notes after each visit (and she also includes the time of the day or night of her visits). She has acclimated herself to my dogs' quirks (one has to be "conned" off the back porch when it is raining, while the other has to be tricked and bribed with lots of love to come inside from the rain!). I am so thankful that I have met Shelly of Tailwaggers Dog Walking & Pet Sitting. I completely trust that each time I leave for the night that my grrrrlz are in great and loving hands!

I have been using Jeff as my main trainer for over a year. My dog is off the charts nice and smart. We owe it to him! He is unbelievably nice and uses only positive training methods. My dog understands and responds to over 150 commands.(prob. more) Her name is Lilly and she is a 13 month old West Highland Terrier. He is well worth every penny and then some. Lilly literally follows every command we give her. She is also a certified service dog and TDI therapy dog. She visits nursing a home at least once a month.

I know Gina from Pet Smart and saw how well she trained dogs and pet parents. Gina was very caring and atentitive to all their needs. When I needed pet sitting services, I knew she would be able to care for my kids. Gina is very through with knowing each of my pets needs and how to care for them. My dog and one of my cats have special needs and she made sure they received that special care. She took time to hang out with them and play too! She gave me updates with every visit! I have used other people in the past but felt they were more about making money than caring for my pets. Gina goes outside the box by bringing in my mail, emptying garbage, shoveling snow off my porch, washing food bowls, adjusting the temp in my house and loving my kids. Gina is fully trained to admimister meds, and had no problem doing it for my dog. I know if one of my pets needed emergency care, she will not hesitate to take care of it! I trust Gina with my pets and in my home! I am so thankful to be able to rely on such a caring person that has such knowledge and ability to care for the things that I love the most, my pets! I am so happy to have a pet caretaker that I trust and love!

Called when they were on their way. Removed a lot of dog waste from the home! So thankful for them so I do not have to do it. My elderly mother uses them as well since she isn't physically able to do it! Would definitely recommend!

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.
