Deedee was great! Unfortunately we were unable to conquer the dog chasing cat problem in our first 2 sessions but that may have had more to do with our cat being unresponsive to interacting with our dog. For the last 2 sessions, we worked on manners outside and we have had significant improvements in leash manners and people manners! Deedee gave us the tools necessary to continue working with our dog to continue to improve. Also, scooby doos house of play has a wide variety of options from train and board to personal lessons that we will utilize in the future to continue to conquer our puppy problems :) our dog was an 6 year old rescue so she can obviously help train out bad behaviors in older dogs too! Would go back if we ever decide to get another dog with behavioral issues. Thanks Deedee!

We have only good comments for Bonnie. Our 3 year old dog has never been left with anyone but family. After meeting Bonnie we felt great leaving our dog in her hands. She sent us pics and updates daily and loved her and walked her and treated her as her own!!! You couldn't do better🐾❤️👍

Lisa comes to my home daily to walk my puppy and he loves her! She leaves me a written note describing each visit, which assures me that my puppy is doing well when I'm away at work. I'm so happy I found her through thumbtack!

Great love and care for our adopted family member. I have a lab and she can't wait to see them everytime. I hate it when Sugar's paws walk on my hardwood floors but Brooke patiently explained to me why I can't cut her nails back more. The needs of their furry friends are always a top priority.

      Jess took great care with my two dogs and cat while we were on vacation. I knew from the moment I met her that the animals would quickly adapt to her caring for them. They instantly fell in love with her wonderful personality and passion for animals. Dependable, caring, and affordable. Highly recommend.

      I will sit with, play with, feed, walk, and love your pet while you're not there. I am a pet-loving person who will take good care of your pet like it was my own.


      We provide dog walking as well as bathing, pet sitting, overnight care, pickup and drop-off services as well as food/water and bathroom break services!


      Please contact me, Tom, for dog services. Call me ASAP.


      I would like to help you with your dog. If it's just a potty break while you're at work or a walk because you do not have the time to, I will be glad to help you out!


      I provide dog walking, entertainment, house-sitting and care of the house if odd jobs are needed, such as watering plants. I am a retired veterinarian, so I love to care for pets with health issues and needs of the elderly or anxious pets.


      I treat each pet as if they are my own. When I walk a dog, I take additional time to make sure they get what they need to make them happy. Whether it's sniffing longer in one place, running for a while, or playing in the yard, it's their time, and I want to do all that they need, so their owners have a balanced and happy pet when they come home. Additionally, if I am responsible to give a pet a meal or treats, I only feed them organic foods from USA/Canada.


      I can walk your dogs, big or small. I clean houses and do other small household services. If you have a job that needs to be done and I am equipped to handle it, I would be more than happy to.


      Barb Levenson Dog Training Centers' pet classes have been helping Pittsburgh dog owners train their dogs for 3 decades. All classes are specifically designed to help owners develop a positive canine relationship through positive reinforcement training.


      I'm really good with dogs. I charge $5 an hour, and each walk with the dogs are $5 an hour. If you ever wanna go out, I'll dog sit your dog.

      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.
