Jewlie is a wonderful and caring petsitter. She has taken care of Jake--picture above--for 12 years now. She has also taken care of our kitty since he joined our home 5 years ago. I love that she has a background as a vet technician and can give medications as well as walking the pets. She is trusted and caring. I would highly recommend her services to anyone!

Kelley's team of dog walkers have taken our very high energy dog on walks for more than a year. Her team does a great job with our dog. They know how to handle him - he returns home appropriately exhausted and very happy. They are always on time and are easy to communicate with regarding any scheduling changes that need to be made. We highly recommend them.

So very thankful for Alex and his knowledge about what was best for my dog Lucy. He gave me really workable, sound advice. Lucy is totally responding to his directions. I feel he gave us both tactics to go forward with. Given Lucy, is a high attention dog I am sure we will need him to come back!

I have to leave a good word for Hello Rover Dog Walking. I’m just settling in to the Seattle area and my job schedule has been crazy. Hello Rover was quick to accommodate to my schedule changes, and I especially like the easy online scheduling and billing. My dog Hank is happy – his walker is warm and friendly, but professional. He is really adjusting well to his new home, and I think this service has helped immensely.

Angelica really cares about our dogs she has made progress with our hardest dog to walk where other people have failed. We have multiple dogs and she takes all of them into consideration. We HIGHLY recommend this person and we like the fact that it’s not all online we can converse with her if not in person at least over messenger

Colleen is fabulous! She's totally reliable and my dogs love her and her assistant. The dogs get well walked and come back tired. My funny little Roxie dog won't poop on a leash, so when I won't be home until late, Colleen takes her to the back yard and lets her do her business there. I do not give my house keys to anyone else, but I totally trust her with the keys and the dogs.

She walked my dogs while I was out of town and I appreciated the great communication and pictures. She braved taking them out in the rain and toweled them off before putting them back in their kennels and I know they were happy to see her.

I originally hired them to start providing dog walks during the week when I cant work from home. The next day after my meet and greet I had an emergency and was called out of town but since my walker had just met Corina I was hesitant to push that on her as well. The company informed me she was able to provide overnight sitting in my home for 5 days. I'm a crazy dog mom and I was a nervous wreck until my husband reminded me we could check on her via our cameras (These cameras are hidden and our sitter was unaware of them). I was pleasantly surprised at the love shown to my dog it was above and beyond what we could have hoped for. My dog usually goes on a night walk with the neighbors dog and my sitter was more than happy to walk them together to keep their routine up. She also received extra walks, played fetch in the backyard, let the neighbors dog come over, and spent extra time at the house during the day. Corina usually exhibits some form of behavioral issues when we go away furniture chewing, door scratching, etc. She didn't destroy anything last week even when the sitter was away during the day. I cant wait for Corina to start her weekly walks and I'm glad we found Paws and Plums. Thank you Ghislaine!

I am 110% satisfied with Vivians care of my pets while I was on vacation! She was courteous, punctual, reliable, obviously knowledgeable and just a real sweetheart! My pups and I liked her immediately! She even got my "shy" dog to actually leave the yard and go for a walk! I haven't been able to get her to willingly do that! Thank you, Vivian! She sent me periodic status updates and pictures! When I got home she took time to "educate" me on some techniques for continuing the training she had done with my shy dog and she will be coming back for further training sessions! I am grateful I found Vivian and will highly recommend her to friends and family! Thank you Vivian from me and Autumn, and Summer, and Dinah!

While visiting “Paddywhack” pet store I stumbled upon a business card for Nanny Dolittle. I’d been looking for a pet-sitter or someone who can drop in on a long work day and tend to my pack. Some time went by and we adopted a fourth rescue dog. Adjustment periods for the dogs can take some time and extra tending to, so I decided to call the Nanny. We met, reviewed each dog in depth, my expectations for her visits, their expectations and then we created a visitation schedule on the spot. She left with a key to our home and has been coming regularly for over a year. Nanny Dolittle provides loving care to my dogs that desire it most and endless ball throwing for the other two. She knows exactly what each one needs and intuitively reads them when she visits. I know this because she leaves a note at the end of her visit that describes her stay and interactions with them. What she writes is exactly what we would have done for them had we been home. In addition, we notice the difference in their energy, happiness and general well-being on the days the Nanny has visited. She is reliable, flexible, trustworthy, accommodating, gentle, caring and provides exactly what she promises. We feel lucky to have her in our pack and the dogs are always excited when we leave for work with the parting words, “The Nanny will be visiting with you today, just rest until her arrival.” Rachael Millikan Beyond Barking Animal Communication www.beyondbarking.com

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.
