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.

It’s more than 1 year that my dogs walk with them or have them as pet sitter if I travel, and I’m very satisfied. They love dogs and they love to take care of them. The best in Dallas.

My dog, Dawson, is needing more exercise as he gets older. Since I work from home and cannot take him for an extended walk during the day, I needed some help and I found Prestigous Pets Dog Walking service. It was very easy to navigate their website and see the pricing options options, etc. I messaged them on the website and had an answer back within a few minutes. They are very punctual for scheduled appointments and Dawson loves seeing his dog walking partner. I would highly recommend using this service.

I think they do a wonderful service. They're much more than just traditional dog walkers. They care about the animals and exercise them according to their level of need. My favorite option of their service is to walk dogs in group so they have a communal experience.

Such a great service! Wendy met with Chloe (my whip mix) and I before her first walk and she was very attentive to Chloe and clearly explained the process. She even sent me pics of her walks! She is easily accessible and she is clearly a Dog-lover! I highly recommend her services.

I scheduled a "meet and greet" with Marianne. She was prompt and so wonderful with our dog. After taking him for a short walk, she gave us an assessment and was kind enough to recommend someone else that would be better suited because he's an exceptionally big dog! We so appreciate her honesty! I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Wendy makes the process simple and is involved with her clients. She spent extra time getting to know me and my dog Roxie. Her team sends texts/ pics on the walks each day. I feel very comfortable using their services.

Drew and Shelly have done an excellent job taking care of my senior dog, Boomer, who has recently gone blind. They are very careful and compassionate, and Boomer looks forward to his afternoon walks with Drew. I highly recommend their service to all pet owners.

I chose to work with Good Day Pet Sitters because the owner, Wendy, is very professional and immediately provided a clear expectation of what her services provides. The price is cheaper than most others. For my two big German Shepherds, it is only $17 for 30 minutes. I receive photos of the dogs on the walk every time and get updates after every walk. I feel totally comfortable with bringing Wendy's professional team into my apartment. Highly recommend!

Same day service! Wow!! Kind, caring professional service with fair rates and options for other services. My big dog is smitten with his new walking friend and my little chihuahua who is usually quite reserved insisted on being held...by a stranger! Thank you Tiffany and Alisha. You've made an entire family very happy and we all look forward to an awesome relationship :)
