Susan paired our pup with a dog walker that was wonderful! When our usual gal was unavailable, Susan walked Murphy herself! I knew Murphy was in good hands when Susan requested to meet her first before coming to the house while we were gone to let her out. I would highly recommend Sit Stay Grow for house visit or pet sitting! We have done both and are very please with the cost and services!

Amy has been fantastic to work with. We’ve had many people say they’ve noticed a change since we’ve been working with her. We needed the training just as much as our dog did! I have already recommended her to a few people who told me they needed training for their dogs.

Benny was a delight to work with. He came to my home for an initial visit to learn what my dog’ needs were. I could tell right away that he loves dogs by the way he interacted with my little guy. Benny was punctual and on the morning he took care of my dog he let me know when he arrived, sent me photographs, and texted to tell me how the time with my dog went. I would recommend Benny to anyone!

Kimberly was absolutely fantastic taking care of my cat. My cat required medicine on a daily basis and Kimberly was able to provide this care perfectly. My cat is a very anxious and shy of new people, but Kimberly did a fantastic job spending time with her and talking to her. She takes the time to get to know both you and your animal, as well as spends quality time with the animal to make them feel more comfortable. I highly recommend Kimberly and look forward to using her services in the future.

I was nervous to leave town and have my newly adopted dog with my older dog. Natasha and Karen visited my dogs multiple times and made sure the dynamic between the two dogs are good and supervised them for play time. I received messages, videos and pictures from my dogs playing, I'm just a nervous mama! They are great I recommend them. They will love your pups as much as you do!

    We are currently using Pawsitively Pampered Pets for daycare for our 8 month old pitbull, Atlas. Since Atlas is still a puppy, he needs to be entertained during the day so he will actually sleep at night. We were also looking to have him interact with other dogs during the day. Pawsitively Pampered Pets is just perfect for what he need. Initially, Amber invited us over to meet her, her husband, and her son prior to signing up for daycare. We also met the 3 resident dogs of the household and Atlas got to sniff around the house. When we dropped Atlas off the first time, he whined at the door and was so excited to go in. When we picked him up his tail was wagging and he seemed as happy as could be. Thanks Pawsitively Pampered Pets!

    About

    I walk dogs in the Grove City, Ohio vicinity and am insured through the Pet Sitters Association (PSA). For the past five years, I have operated an extremely part-time housecleaning and home staging business. I also take care of my clients' dogs, walking them, giving them treats and water and playing with them. I have found that I love spending time with their dogs. I also have a small Cockapoo who I walk several times a day. I am a mature (54 years old), responsible woman in excellent physical shape. My clients will attest to my trustworthiness and can provide excellent references. If you live in Grove City and need an excellent, loving dog walker, please contact me. Thank you.

    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.
