Awesome experience!! Although this was our first time, you can bet we will continue using Animal Talker in the future!!!! We were on vacation out of country, our first time leaving our dog with 'strangers', but they would send daily texts and pictures to keep us in the loop, and hoping we would not be too sad....it worked!! We highly recommend them!!

First session was this week, we discussed what my problems were with my boxer to determine what needed to be done. she and her husband worked as a team with my dog and i could see results just after the first visit. i feel confident she will be able to help me to get my puppy on the right track of obedience.

Our dog had a barking problem with visitors and Carmen offered several solutions and even provided the tools at no cost. After two reasonably priced visits, the problem is significantly reduced and we now have the means to continue the training. Very happy with Carmen's patience and assistance.

Matt was wonderful from the get go. He came and introduced himself before watching our dog shiner. It's always important to feel comfortable with the person watching your home and animals. Matt made the process effortless and without worry. We recommend him to anyone needing pet services.

    I wanted to send a quick message to let you know how pleased I was with America C. this past weekend. She really showed great concern and care for my 2 dogs and was very descriptive in her messages to me while I was away on vacation. By far, she has been the best pet sitter I've had. I would really like to keep using her from here on out as the pet sitter for my pets. My dogs really liked her and she just took such good care of them. Please, if it's possible I really want to keep America as my pet sitter from here on out. It was a great experience and I knew from the "get go" upon meeting her, my dogs were in excellent hands with her. I am truly a satisfied and happy client!

    As soon as I met Kirk it was obvious that he truly has a special understanding of dog behavior. My dog is normally very nervous, anxious and reactive with strangers, but Kirk was calm and confident in his first interactions with my dog, Sophie and was able to gain control of the situation instantaneously. Over the course of the next 90 minutes, Kirk was very personable and patient with both Sophie and me. His experience and knowledge of dog behavior is apparent and he does a great job of addressing problem situations by empowering you with the knowledge, the tools and most importantly, the confidence to do it on your own. It has only been a few days from our initial session but I am very pleased with the results thus far. I am much more confident in my ability to manage Sophie’s less than ideal behaviors (barking at the door, reacting on leash at other dogs, etc.) This in turn has had a noticeably positive effect on her behavior and energy. I look forward to continue working with Kirk and continuing our progress. I absolutely recommend Kirk if you’re looking for insight into dog behavior and are seeking assistance with your own pup.

    About

    Have been taking care of other people's animals for over ten years.

    About

    I'll walk your dogs, give them their medicine and loads of loving while I'm there. I have 3 of my own that are the world to me so I understand how important the treatment of a pet is. I'll be there on time whenever I'm needed.

    About

    I love animals. I love taking care of them as if their owner was right there with us. I like to help animals move more freely, so they can have someone to take care of them and love them as well.

    About

    I can charge reasonable prices for pet walking and sitting. For pet walking, the owner must come to me. But for pet sitting, it will be done in your home! My hours are 8:00-5:00. If you have any questions, let me know.

    About

    I'm not sure why others may work as dog walkers but to me it's something more personal between me and the dog that I enjoy and take personal, that I think my service may stand out.

    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.
