    I love your dog as I love my own! I give them a spa experience and I don't use kennels!! Dogs are my God given passion! I love animals but I really enjoy spending time with them. The dogs are such a relief to be around. They love unconditionally!


    I am available to walk your dog, work on your farm, clean up your scrap heaps and haul it off, and do about anything else.


    I groom cats and dogs. I have 5 years of all-breed experience. I studied under a certified national master groomer and can hand strip. I do house-call grooming which means if you provide a place for me to set up, I will come to your house. Most of my clients have neighbors and friends come over to one house and I groom 6-8 dogs in a day.

    I don't take on jobs that I feel like I can't do. We WILL meet our training goals together! I love helping bridge the communication gap between dogs and their owners. This is usually the root of most training issues.


    I am a small-town girl who enjoys animals. I recently fostered kittens, and I walk my own dog. Dog walking keeps your dog happy and healthy. Let me walk yours.


    I clean houses and windows. I also walk dogs, bathe and clip nails. I'm very happy to help my clients in all their needs. Everyone needs assistance with everyday household chores. My goal is to make it easier for them, so they have more free time to spend with their families. I dedicate my life to helping others.


    I provide dog walking/exercise sessions and pet sitting services when you are out of town or incapable of doing so yourself.


    Please contact me! I will give you much more comprehensive and detailed description, of what I can offer for you.


    I am a dependable 46-year-old mother to one son and grandmother. I have been a stay-at-home mother for 17 years and am now ready to get out and work. I love pets and the elderly. I will sit with your loved one or walk your dog. I can cook and do light house work. I am an honest, hardworking and dependable person. Please let me work for you. Thank you.


    We offer dog walking and are sitters for dogs and home. I will come to your home and walk your dog at least one block. If you want to go on vacation, I can either stay with your dog or come by and see that he has water food and exercise. House-sitting services are available as well.


    I am dedicated to your pets' happiness. I offer dog walking, pet sitting, training and anything else that is needed to make your pets happy. My services extend to all types of pets. I also offer light housekeeping, running of errands and helping with anything that is needed.

    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.
