I highly recommend Cynthia and assure you will be extremely happy with her services. I left my 7 month old German Shepherd,Kobe, with her for 3 weeks. It was difficult to be away from him for so long but worth it. Kobe walks great on a leash now. He follows commands sit, stay, off, come, place, and down. He even sits and waits at the door nicely before being released to go through the doorway. Cynthia treats your dog as her own. While Kobe was in her care, she identified some stomach issues and changed his food, with my permission. As a result, Kobe's stomach issues improved. It was evident upon picking Kobe up, at the end of his 3 weeks of training, that Kobe had bonded with Cynthia. On pickup day, she spends the time needed for you to feel comfortable learning all the commands your dog has learned and teaches you how to walk with your dog correctly. Please choose Cynthia for your dog's training needs. You will be very satisfied with your pup's progress.

Nicole was fantastic in training my very challenging dog. Although it’s an ongoing process and I still have quite a bit of work to do, Nicole laid the foundation and helped me gain my dog’s respect. I really appreciated that her board and train program included 5 individual sessions with me and my dog.

Judy from Pet Professionals has walked every dog I have ever owned (Rudy & Zoey (kennel mates), Sadie and now Cody). I trust Judy with the most important part of my life, my dogs. Not only has she walked them, but she has also given me training advice. Consistency with new pups is very important and her advice is priceless. She has been so flexible, if my schedule changes she adapts for me. My dogs have all loved her beyond belief. I am so fortunate to have found Pet Professionals, buy mostly I am lucky to have found Judy. She is not only the caretaker/walker of my dogs, she has also become a very close friend.

Laura is the best! My schedule at work changes quite a bit and she will come and walk my dogs up to 2 times a day if it is an especially long day. She is very reliable and I know I can depend on her! I appreciate her so much!

She took excellent care of my dog and I would recommend her to anyone. She will take your dog out to the dog parks if she's able, which is really neat. She is a smart and trustworthy individual. 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.
