Melissa is amazing! She has transformed our 3 year old lab into a well-behaved, lead-friendly, walking, fun-family dog. Our 80 lb lab was challenged with many physical issues in her first year of life. She had two major surgeries before she turned one year old, which kept her bed ridden in her crate for the next year. Melissa trained her for two weeks in her own home and Jolene came back a new dog. Melissa then gave us written directions on how to continue Joey's training by correcting our own behavior with regards to Jo's training needs. Jolene is now off to college with our daughter and is well-behaved and loved by all. We highly recommend Melissa's Mutts and Mongrel's for all your dog's (and your) training needs! Lee, Andora & Hannah Kockentiet

I have known Lisa for years and each time I have called on her to take care of my dog Griffey, she is always there. She is very professional, always on time, very reasonable and most importantly loves and takes great care of Griffey. He gets very excited every time he sees her. If you are looking for someone to take care of or walk your dog, I highly recommend Lisa.

Brandon from NKY pet sit took care of our dog and cat while we were on vacation. We were anxious about leaving our animals home but he calmed our nerves. We knew that they were all in good hands with Brandon. Our animals loved him and they were well cared for. Brandon also brought in our mail and took out our garbage. We will definitely use him again!!

Debbie was our nanny for 12 years and cared for our two sons (and our dog!). She truly became an extension of our family. She is reliable, dedicated, organized, loving, trustworthy, compassionate, responsible and a pleasure to be around. Though our children are now grown, Debbie is still and always will be a part of our family. She is truly wonderful.

Mary Beth walked dogs my two dogs, Betsi & Penny, daily. She walked them whether it was raining, snowing, or the sun was shining. She never canceled their walk and was always flexible with my work schedule. I trusted her to enter my home and lock up after her visit. Now that I’m retired, and when I have all-day plans, Mary Beth stops by and feeds and walks Betsi and Penny even at a last minute notice. Mary Beth loves her clients’ pets and treats them as if they were her own. She is very reliable and I highly recommend her for your pet care.

Dandelion Acres offers 3 acres of fenced play space! We feel that dogs need room to run and play both inside and out! More like a dog park, we don't have high fences and confined spaces. Pups are able to go outside far more than two times per day like other kennels offer.

About

I am starting a business where I walk dogs. I also sit pets anything from cats and dogs and horses. I am just starting to turn it into a business, but I have sat for friends and families' dogs, cats and horses for years now. I love animals and want to make this my career.

As an animal lover, I understand the necessity for animal exercise and health. With this knowledge, I make target times and lengths for the canine and I to walk/jog with the end result being a healthier and happier animal.

We focus more exclusively on the relationship between pet and owner, creating an unbreakable bond that ties them together, so that they work better together. We will initially work with the dog, showing them the command and what is expected, then we hand the control to the owner and help them master the command.

About

I can provide training and exercise that will help your dog become a great family member! I use completely force free methods. ZERO prong, choke, chain, or shock collars. Buckle or martingale collars are acceptable along with front clasp harnesses! (I don't mind giving recommendations) We work WITH our dogs and help them figure out what we DO want from them and not what we DON'T want from them. I will help you make training into a fun game with your dog instead of a 'chore'. Training doesn't only make your pup tolerable to the family unit but strengthens your bond to your pup and makes your dog WANT to work for you!

About

I will make sure sure dog and cats are alright. I will give food and water and spend significant time with them. I will also provide dog walking services. I have a diploma in dog care and am a veterinary assistant.

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.
