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.

ATX Super Sitters has made my dog Bogart and I so happy since we've started using their services. With a new job, my schedule demands long, sometimes unconventional hours and I wouldn't be able to work with a clear conscious without knowing Bogart was taken care of while I am away. Shani and Mark are naturals with animals and always have my dog's best interests at heart. They go above and beyond making sure I am updated on any schedule changes, aware of any behavioral trends my dog is exhibiting, and ready to offer their advice whenever it is asked for. Of course, we all love our own pets, but it's really comforting to leave my dog in the hands of people that love him as well. I wouldn't use anyone else for my dog walking or boarding needs. ATX Super Sitters is fantastic.

We have used Pamper Ur Pet for about 2 months now. Due to a shift in our work schedule, there is one night during the week that our dog is stuck inside longer than we like. We started with the 30 minute pamper session and could not be happier. We know longer have to worry about a mess and our dog has her needs taken care of. Faith is fantastic and excellent with our dog.

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!

We can't recommend Rachael enough - I wish I could give her more stars! She was our dog walker when we lived in VA and were heartbroken when we moved because she can never be replaced. Our beagles loved her from the first moment she walked through our door. As a matter of fact, our beagle girl Madison gave her kisses within minutes of meeting Rachael (Maddie does not give out kisses easily). Jefferson wouldn't leave the house if a substitute dog walker had to come for the day - that is how much they loved her. She always treated our beagles like they were her own and went above & beyond for us. If she lived in our area, we'd become clients again in a heartbeat. Rachael is one of the few non-family members that we trust with our beagle babies!

Samantha and Julie were great! We contacted Premier Pet TLC as the first on our list of possible sitters and we didn't have to look any further! From our first meet & greet, Samantha went out of her way to gain the trust of our loving fur babies. We had them come twice a day to walk our dog, change litter, and feed everybody, and stay overnight for 4 nights so our animals wouldn't get lonely. Samantha went above and beyond with our youngest cat, Toby, who has confidence issues. By the end of her stay, our normally very shy boy was coming out of his safe place to investigate and show her some love at dinner time. Their online portal is fantastic to use and makes it easy to schedule future visits. Through the portal, we were sent progress reports after each visit, which included photos and updates on how everybody was doing. We even got special Mother's Day greeting photos from each of our adorable pets! We loved Premier Pet TLC so much, that it was a joy to accept Samantha's offer for a behavioral session with Toby to help work on his kitty confidence, and we very much look forward to it. We will now always recommend Premier Pet TLC to anybody who asks, and if we could give an even higher rating we absolutely would. If you're looking for a caring sitter to take care of your pets while you're away, there is no better choice!

Chantal has walked my three German Shorthaired Pointers on several occasions along with my Cockapoo. These dogs can be a handful because of their strength and energy levels. Chantal did a great job, the dogs enjoyed their walk and they came home TIRED and that is fabulous... It is hard to tire out a Pointer. I would recommend Emily's Dog Jogger to any dog or pet "parent". She is great with my dogs and I plan to use her in the future when I'm out of town and need a pet sitter! She's prompt, easy to reach via phone or text and she enjoys what she's doing!

Lu is wonderful! My two 80+ lb older dogs (8 and 6) were having behavioral issues and Lu taught us how to properly train them. I referred Lu to my parents who have a stubborn Dachshund who are also very happy.

      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.
