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.

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.

    I like the fact the trainers have knowledge of the maltese breed. They made me feel welcome and that they will work with me and my baby.

    This gal is the best! Our dogs don’t get stressed nearly as much as with other groomers! We won’t go anywhere else! She uses all-natural products, which are much better on their fur & skin, files the nails, as well as trimming them, so no sharp edges. Our dogs even get a treat to take home!

    Anyone who knows me in person knows that I am 100% obsessed and protective of my dogs. I always strive to give them the best life they deserve. When my class schedule was getting too busy, I needed someone to help me out with the dogs so they weren't cooped up all day. I am so thankful I found Allie because she seems to care for them as much as I do. When I get back from my classes, they are almost too tired to say hi to me! I also really appreciate how she has personalized regimens for each dog. I have a hyper younger dog and an aging dog so they obviously need different workouts. I honestly have no idea what I'd do if Allie wasn't here to help me out. If you're ever in need of an AMAZING dog walker, give Allie a call!!


    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 are young and active and would love to take care of your pets!


    I am Heather Rickmon, a babysitter for all ages and a dog walker for any dogs, as long as they are friendly. My career began in high school when I wanted to make some money, since then, I've been dedicated to babysitting and being a dog walker, as long as I get paid.


    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.


    I do what my customers want that they can't or don't want to do. I take care of animals, houses, yards or whatever is needed. My pet care is like my children, I love and respect them and listen to them.


    I love dogs. I've had taken cared of puppies and dogs before. I just recently rescued a dog and take her in.


    I am always happy to be working with animals! Dogs are my favorite

    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.
