Janelle came to help me clean my house since I'm 8 months pregnant and I've never had a cleaning lady because I always felt like I could handle it...Well she is a Godsend!! She was on time, professional, and polite doesn't even cover it! We had great conversation and she even offered to walk my dogs since she knew I wasn't feeling well! I don't even want to say hire her because I want her all to myself but you're missing out if you don't hire her!! I will be using before and after baby comes!! Thank You!!

Rose has been providing dog-walking service for my 2 dogs while we are at work during the week. She has been very dependable and reliable, and goes above and beyond when spending time with our dogs. She always sends photos, gives updates, provides fresh water, cleans up messes, and will practice training with them as well. She is truly outstanding and we feel so lucky to know we can trust she is caring for our dogs as she would her own. We are looking forward to a long relationship with her!

Robyn is a person of quality, integrity and a great work ethic. For the last two years she has stayed at our house with our german shepard rescue, who has trust issues. Robyn took great care of the house and our dog and in addition always sent us text messages with pictures and vidoes so we could see how our beloved pet was doing. I wouldn’t have anyone else take care of our beloved pet! Thank you Robyn!!

    The experience was wonderful for my dog Cyra and for us as her "parents". I was apprehensive about it at first because we have never had to find a sitter for our fur baby. We met Jordana a few days beforehand and Cyra was fine with her immediately. Cyra played with their two puppies as well. The first meeting went well. Jordana and I discussed what was needed to make Cyra feel at home and the price. The day we dropped her off....she was familiar with Jordana and her puppies. Cyra had a wonderful time, and we got pictures of her throughout our time away. That was a very nice touch. We will be using her again in the future and would also recommend her to anyone who asks.

    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.
