Where do I start? I have a very young Lab-Pitt mix (Olive) who is very skittish. Olive doesn't approach anyone. Melissa walks out with her dog and I think that it's not going to go well. She sticks out her hand, pets her without a problem. She then takes the leash and walks Olive back to the yard with here dog. No barking, no crying, no pulling. I was amazed. I've been by to visit twice and I can already see a change in Olive. She's playing with other dogs and she actually listens now.

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!!

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.


I am a local pet sitter and dog walker who is reliable and trustworthy! Contact me for a free meet and greet and I can provide references.

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.
