Matthew Moriarty sat with our dogs in our hotel room while we were at a wedding. He went above and beyond, taking our dogs out for several walks. Our dogs responded to him easily and clearly felt very comfortable with him. We would highly recommend Dog Gone Walking for ant pet services.

Ellie is great with my Shar pei Chewie. Chewie is a very nervous dog and She trusts Ellie. She loves walking with Ellie. One night I was in the hospital about to be admitted and I called Ellie to get her to pick up Chew at 1130pm at night and she went and picked her up and watched her for me while some tests were being done. I trust Ellie in my apartment with my things and moreover and importantly I trust her with Chewie. Chewie was abused I think by the way she cowers when she occasionally had an accident and hides. She does not trust everyone and she trusted Ellie almost instantly which is a very rare thing for Chew. I don't think Chew trusted me when I get her as a rescue in November for almost a week. Ellie is awesome!!! Oh I also called Ellie the very day that she emailed me and I told her I needed her tomorrow. Ellie met her and came to the house that day. Ellie is the best pet walker and sitter!!

Carrie is GREAT! She is clearly a pet lover (as is her partner). She makes an effort to be flexible to one's schedule. She does not just sit and watch the dog play outside, but is actively involved. If you need her to find palace off-leash, she will find it. She will come to your home and she will do overnights. Her home is rather small to have a large pet there but it is full of love and comfort, which is most important. She will check in w/ you everyday, give you updates; never complains (even if your dog helps her to sprain her ankle!) She is trustworthy and I highly recommend her!

My kitty loves Aimee. She is the first cat sitter that my kitty Jermie has allowed to pick him up besides me. Aimee is always on time and her communication is on point. I don't ever have to worry about Jermie being cared for or my home not being like I left it.

    About

    Hello, my name is Echo. I started dog walking back in my hometown DC. I was a veterinary technician for 3 years, and my mother is a veterinarian, so she can provide vaccines at home if needed, as well as veterinary care at anytime, if something were to go wrong with your pet under my care (worst case scenarios but its always good to be prepared!). I usually charge 15$ for an hour and 10 for half an hour. If you have any other questions, just give me a call.

    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?

    What is included in a dog grooming?

    Dog grooming is so much more than giving your dog a bath. Dog grooming is a broad term that covers all aspects of canine cleanliness and hygiene. The services included in dog grooming will vary based on your needs and what you choose to pay. Unless they are rolling in cowpies or playing in mud puddles, most dogs are okay getting a shampoo bath only as needed. You’ll know when they need it if they smell bad or are bringing dirt into the house. Some dogs, like shepherds and shih tzus, have thick coats that can get matted and tangled without regular care. Pro dog groomers can deftly blow dry a dog’s hair after a bath so that it is shiny and smooth. Dog grooming can include brushing that detangles dog hair and also thins the undercoat to minimize shedding.

    Dog grooming also includes hygiene services such as toothbrushing and ear cleaning. Clean teeth are important to the health of your dog, and the pros have the patience and proper technique to get it done. Regular dog grooming can stave off tear stains, those reddish stains below your dog’s eyes. Anal gland expression is something not many people want to do on their own, even if they love their dog. A dog groomer can safely and efficiently release any blocked anal gland fluid. Other dog grooming services include nail trimming and clipping. Nationally, dog grooming prices range from $60 to $80. Most dog groomers offer discounts to customers who purchase monthly packages or bundle multiple grooming services at one time.

    What is a dog groomer?

    A dog groomer is a service professional who provides dog grooming and basic hygiene care for your dog. Dog groomers are typically animal lovers who are competent and comfortable working with a wide range of dog breeds and temperaments. Dog groomers are knowledgeable about the care needs for different kinds of dog coats. A poodle will have different haircut needs than a shih tzu, for example, so it pays to have a trained pro provide the proper cut. Good dog groomers know how to safely clean your dog’s teeth, bathe your dog, and cut their nails without going too short. They understand how to trim the hair from around your dog’s face, express anal glands, and clean your dog’s ears. Many people who choose dog grooming as a profession also pursue other dog services such as attending veterinary school, running a doggy day care center, working as a professional dog walker, and more.

    What is a dog groomer?

    Keep your family dogs happy, healthy and clean with regular dog grooming. A dog groomer is a business owner or employee of a dog grooming business who specializes in dog hygiene and grooming. To find a reputable dog groomer, research reviews, ask for references and confirm that the groomer has good standing in the dog grooming community.

    A dog groomer should be comfortable and competent working with dogs of all breeds and temperaments. Typically a groomer will have trained with other groomers and taken educational courses to keep abreast of the latest safety information and techniques. There are brick-and-mortar dog grooming businesses, as well as mobile dog groomers who bring all their equipment and provide their services at your home or location. In some cases, brick-and-mortar businesses will also pick up and return your dog for an additional fee.

    How much does it cost to groom a dog?

    Dog grooming costs depend on the service your pet requires. Nationally, the average price for dog grooming ranges from $40 to $100, varying by location. Not surprisingly, dog grooming on New York’s Upper East Side costs nearly double what it costs in a small town in Montana. Dog groomers typically handle every aspect of your dog’s beauty and hygiene, from tooth brushing to hairstyling. One potential way to save is to have your dog groomed at your doggy daycare — sometimes they offer discounts on dog grooming prices for clients. Here are some examples of average dog grooming costs in the San Francisco Bay Area. Please note these prices would include transportation fees for picking up and dropping off your dog to your home:

    • Nails: $30 a la carte or $20 when bundled with another service
    • Toothbrushing: $30 a la carte or $20 when bundled with another service
    • Tooth scraping (removal of plaque from teeth to prevent infection), with anesthesia: $600
    • Tooth scraping, without anesthesia: $400.
    • Wash and dry: $60
    • Ears: $30 a la carte or $20 when bundled with another service
    • Grooming package: $130 — includes wash, nails, teeth, ears, gland expression and haircut
