Cathy came in a timely matter. She did an excellent job with my dog. The dog was the first time she had a private groomer. Cathy kept my dog quiet by just talking and the dog settled down. I have already signed up for another visit. Very pleased Maureen Riley

I am very impressed with Blackstone Valley Dog Walking and Pet Sitting LLC. I arrived home from a 10 day vacation to find everything exactly as I wanted and my 2 dogs were happy and healthy. Glen would send a daily text message with photos to keep me updated. Highly recommended!

I heard about this service from my neighbor. I couldn't have made a better choice for my furry baby, Elijah. April is so friendly, courteous and professional. She is consistent and reliable. Elijah went to her immediately and even took a treat (his own) offered by April from her the first day. This is remarkable, because my baby does not take treats from anyone. I could tell he really liked her; Elijah has good judgment of people! He has been enjoying his daily walks. I highly recommend Fairbanks Four Paws Dog Walking to family, friends and colleagues.

    Chantelle and Mutt Butts are the most reliable and down to earth pet sitters. Chantelle was able to fit in my cat visits right away and always follows up with me on the same day of the visit. Best prices around! She also provides dog walking services to my girlfriend- which has also been a great experience. Our animals look forward to her visits

    Tammi has taken excellent care of my dogs and cat. She goes above and beyond to be sure they don't miss you too much. She did a great job caring for my elderly dog who needed increased care and clean up!

    Robin Billings is an experienced dog trainer. Robin has the innate ability to "read" your dog, and then she can help you understand how to train your dog. Robin's training methods are positive, not punitive. You and your dog will both enjoy having Robin instruct you - whether it you are training house manners or for the obedience ring.

    Katie dogsits for me when I go away on business trips or go into Boston for the weekend, and I could not recommend her more highly! She is caring and attentive to my dog; my dog gets so excited to see her. My dog is medium to high energy and Katie always tires her out. She is extremely knowledgable about dogs and dog behavior and has given me several tools to help keep my dog more mentally engaged and less stressed. Katie is punctual, she remembers all sorts of details about every dog, and she is my go-to whenever I need someone. Best dog sitter/walker in the Providence area!

    I don't just "drag" your dog out of the house and do a quick lap around the house. I love to have fun and go on nice walk. I have always had pets around me and find that they are another "kid" in the house. When I haven't had a dog around me my house feels empty. I love the individual personalities each dog has. I adapt to them not the other way around.

    About

    I make a safe and friendly environment for the animal. I love animals especially dogs. I am willing to work as soon as possible.

    About

    Hello. My name is Tara. I walk dogs with my sister, depending on the breed of dog (big or small), wild or calm.

    About

    I walk all dogs of all sizes. I have my own dog, so I know how much of a hassle it can be to make the time to walk her.

    About

    I would just like to walk dogs. I love dogs, and as I see it, it's a win-win situation for all. We all get fresh air, companionship, exercises, and kindness. I'm a female who no longer works and is looking for something fulfilling to do part of the time. I don't have a business and am just a kindhearted person who enjoys animals. I am willing to travel to your home or apartment. I have flexible hours and am easygoing. I feel that there is not much more to say unless you would like to communicate with me, so I may answer any and all of your questions.

    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.
