Jack is excellent! I strongly recommend him. I have been struggling to find a walker for my three dogs until I found Jack. He is very professional and knows how to handle dogs. He is also very flexible to help drive them to dog day care and to accommodate to other walks or cancelations. He is insure and know the business better that the other dog walk companies out there that seem professional but only at the beginning. I am very happy and my three dogs like him very much.

Pam is great. She always sends pictures and a little update about her visit. Having her walk my puppy makes me feel so much better when I have to leave him alone during the day. Very trustworthy .

Had Clean N Fresh come out to clean my gutters. I had an area above my front door that would freeze during the winter and cause ice cicles. Which would make it dangerous to walk. We've had a really rainy summer and I couldnt even use my front door because of the heavy downpour. He came out within 24 hours of my call cleaned my gutters. Safe to say the job was done right because it rained and I didn't have that downpour above my front door. I would recommend Clean N Fresh Pros... 5 STARS

Mark visited our home every day and took care of our 2 cats for a week while we were away on vacation. He was very trustworthy and kind to our cats. He sent us pictures every day so we knew they were ok. We will definitely use him again in the future when we are traveling. Highly recommend him for your pet visit or pet walking needs!

Kyle and Alanna were awesome with our dog! We were gone for the weekend and we have never left our dog for that long before. I was honestly a nervous wreck the first day, but after getting great reports and photos back from them after each visit, my worrying stopped. Darla, our dog, also seemed very happy with the experience! We will be using them again! (Just asked them to come by another day this week!)

Today was the first time I met Steve in my home. I feel very confident that he has the ability to help teach me to be the best dog owner I can be! I demonstrated my dog running off the porch and down the walkway with me while he was on a leash. I also shared a video of my dog biting at me while trying to get him inside. I'm looking forward to our training classes and am anxious to get started.

You look for someone who is going to treat your pet as if they were their own. From the moment she came to first meet our dog you could tell she wanted to make sure that we the owners could relax knowing our pet was in good hands as well as make sure our pet was as comfortable and looked after in our absence. Liz did that and more! Next time we are traveling you can bet we will be using Liz!!! She even sent us photos during her times with Copper while we were away. See attached.

Peggy was a great meet and greet, unfortunately, I did not have the pleasure to work with her directly, but seeing how caring she was towards my dog, made my heart melt. She is well trained on how to handle stressful situations involving pets,especially big fearful-aggressive dogs....... I would have hired her in a heart beat, but my rescue dog was not ready to meet new people. He has improved greatly, and he is now muzzled around everyone at all times. I would have hired Peggy, but I didnt want to put her or my dog in a bad situation.

We have had Pilar for over 2 years now and the progress in my rescue American Staffy is remarkable. He is dog reactive and neighbors and strangers I have seen on my walks have remarked on his incredible improvement. She has a special way with dogs and they trust her. The best pack leader! I have complete faith and trust in Pilar and would highly recommend her for training and/or walking your dog.

Donna is professional, punctual, attentive and absolutely wonderful with my pups! They immediately bonded with her and she with them! She took great care of them while I went on a business trip, and administered their meds as directed. Donna also kept in communication with me, providing updates and even sent me a pic of my pups with hearts which was totally awesome! I highly recommend Donna Perona as a dog sitter! 🐶🐶

Athena is a fantastic and gifted trainer. She is compassionate and kind when working with the dog but is still able to achieve outstandingly precise results. I would 100 percent hire her again.

We have 2 dogs, one of whom is very difficult to work with. I didn’t think the dog would let someone unknown ever come into the house. Jacques has been great. He responded immediately and came to meet the dogs the next day. It was clear he had the experience he had the experience we needed. He is just wonderful. Just one week out and all is going so well. 5 stars to Jacques.

I cannot say enough about Michele and the tailwaggers company. I am so lucky to have found her. She is the most dependable person I possibly could have watch my patients. When you tell her a date she is there, you have nothing to worry about. My dogs love her and they are always exhausted when we come home from work. I am so grateful for her!

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.
