I love animals and have knowledge of animal care. I am dependable and responsible and also work as a professional dog walker/pet sitter for a private pet sitting company. I started out as taking care of several neighborhood dogs. Safety is my first priority. I am a nonsmoker with my own reliable transportation with a valid driver's license. I am willing to drive within a 7-mile radius of my house. I have several families within my neighborhood and clients that live in the Bellaire area.I have been doing this for 3 to 4 years. They have dogs and cats, and one family has a dog and a bird. I have several clients that have 2 or more dogs and overnight sit for them I offer pet sitting/dog walking and house-sitting. I have a 10 year old Schnauzer who is considered one of our family.My prices are based on how many animals you have and how far I have to travel. I love animals and they have different personalities ,different breeds and most of them are rescue animals.Some of them need more love and attention and I make a special effort to find out information about each animal for safety and any issues that might come up. Some of my clients have animals that have anxiety when people leave and need to know while taking care of the animals and home and the environment surrounding the area. When I work with new clients I am willing to do a meet and greet before or answer any questions they have. I work with all kinds of customers. I have clients that take very excellent care and treat the animals as a family member. Clients expect good care I also collect information on all animals as to where to take them in an emergency or anything that comes up .See more

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.
