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.

Tim has been great with our German Shepherd puppy Murphy. He not only walks our dog but also helps with his pulling which is extremely important to us. He is willing to help in any way he can and even offers to come and teach out us ways to walk our dog so they do not pull. Tim and his partner walks Murphy Monday-Friday and is very reliable and flexible. We do not know what we would do without him!

The Pack Boss team is walking my two dogs three days per week. It has been easy to reschedule when needed and I have confidence that my dogs are getting the guidance and exercise they need. I have a pitbull and a bulldog; sweet girls who need a firm hand. Good value for 30 min/day.

She is incredibly flexible in scheduling walks and she sends me pictures and gps tracking after every visit. I know she cares for my dog like she would her own. Kel is amazing!

Wonderful experience using Furball while I was on vacation. My daughter watched my pup and Furball came to her house to walk my dog. Fun to get the photo and text message after each visit.

Brenda walked my 2 dogs while we were out of town over Thanksgiving. She responded quickly to my request, and agreed to skip the typical "meet & greet" since I waited until the last minute to schedule! Followed directions perfectly with little prep.

Kel is wonderful! We needed someone to walk our dog every day, and she was able to accommodate. She sends updates and pictures every day. Our pup is a bit anxious, but Kel was patient with her and now they're best friends! I would recommend her to everyone!

We absolutely love Liz and her team. We started off using Liz and Ashely to walk our German Shepherd puppy and immediately fell in love. They sent us detailed updates after each walk with pictures. Their prices are unbeatable as well!! You can tell that they truly care about your dog and it put me at ease. We ended up sending our puppy to their daycare and couldn’t be more happy with the care he gets there. He comes home exhausted and when we drop him off he is so excited! I would 100% recommend TopDog for daycare, walking and boarding!
