We had a great first session with Taylor to work on walking on a leash with our dog Charlie. We’ve already seen improvement with his walking. We’re looking forward to working with Taylor again in the future.

Christine is amazing. A really nice person and most of all she cares about your pets. She is very approachable and you can discuss specifics with her of what you need and she will work with you. My dogs loved her immediately, including my antisocial border collie. We are glad she is our dog's walker.

We could not be happier with the service that Marissa provided. Our dog started to have seizures and we needed someone to come to our house to trim her nails and shave her paws so that she could be more stable while standing. Marissa squeezed us into her schedule on a Saturday and did not hesitate about our dog's special needs. She was so gentle and sweet with our dog, and took her time so that she was comfortable. She bathed our dog and even put up with our 6 year old son talking/asking questions the whole time; she was just as sweet to him! Marissa brought all of her own supplies, including towels, and cleaned the tub and area where she worked when she was done. We feel so blessed to have found Marissa, she is the best!

I have had Mary watch my dogs, which are like my children, and provide the same care that I give them! That's the highest compliment anyone can give - she loves them and they love her! I highly recommend her to watch your pets for the quality of care, but the cost is so low - it's a WIN - WIN combo.

About

I'll walk the animals in naturalistic places, like the disc golf course, Eisenhower trails, and common neighborhoods. I love to give treats and even dance or sit for them. Positive praise gets you farther than barking commands. I'm very squishy and huggable, and I let my dog and other animals sit on my lap for some special petting attention. If they need a bath, I can facilitate it. Also, I have plenty of squishy places for them to sit and rest and a backyard for them to bark and run around.

About

I provide dog sitting, bathing, brushing, walking, nail clipping and ear cleaning. I treat hair loss and irritated skin conditions back to health (with one or more treatments). I do the things you don't have time for. I am not a professional groomer or veterinarian.

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.
