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!!

Paula communicated very well. My dog is very shy hand had some bad experiences with other groomers. Paula was very patient with my dog. She let me know that she wanted to try to make my dog not fear being groomed. When she completed the groom, my dog came out happy and looked great. Paula was professional and very kind. We look forward to working with her again. Thanks Paula for your dedication and kindness!

Myself, my family and our pets have been customers of Tri-County K9 Academy for over 12 years. Whether our dogs are just starting obedience training, are working out for a dog trial, if we have a pet we have a behavior issue we need help with, or if I need assistance with my Service Dog, both Darryl and Tammy have been patient, excellent instructors and their daughters are great helpers. The environment at Tri-County K9 is set up to be safe, educational and rewarding for both animals and humans. They have watched over several of our dogs when we have had to leave town on short notice and we have always come home to happy, clean dogs that you can just tell had a well rounded fun time. Tri-County K9 Academy is an excellent experience for all whether you are training with your own dog, having your dog trained, adopting one of the many dogs rescued and rehabbed at Tri-County, needing boarding, or becoming a better dog owner. Tri-County K9 Academy should be your first stop for all your K9 needs.

We used Furry Friend Pet Care services and Jessica was very professional/organized and friendly, we felt comfortable her watching over our dogs, it was our first time ever us using a in home pet sitter, but I'm glad we did, we took a 7 day vacation and throught our vacation, we were updated on our pets status and daily report card including pictures, when we returned our dogs were happy in good condition and health, being that one of our dogs is diabetic and we were left with a thank you card for using their services. So I was very impressed and would definitely used their services again and I highly recommend them. Gary Davalos

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.

Jen and I had messaged one another in order to discuss helping our dog Vanilla. Unfortunately, we are a very far distance away in order to do visits. However, she still took the time to help us as much as possible via e-mail, sending helpful tips, videos, and more. THAT is something you don't see often, and I greatly appreciate it. We are definitely going to utilize what she gave us!

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.

Rebecca has come to my home many times to take care of my black lab. She is punctual, respectful, friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and fantastic with my senior dog who has cancer. I trust Rebecca to properly give all required meds plus a lot of extra hugs and kisses. She even volunteered to walk my baby without me asking her to -- she goes the extra mile because she loves the animals. And I love the photos she sends (again, on her own initiative). I just can't say enough good things about Rebecca and how great she is with both animals and people!

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.
