Leashed Seattle is an excellent dog walking service. Robert comes to my apartment in Kirkland and walks my dog for 30 minutes. Sometimes I pay a bit more and her takes her to an off leash dog park for an hour. Robert is really easy to reach by cell and email. He always fits us into the schedule, even when I make changes the day before. The best part of his service, and probably what sets Leashed Seattle apart from others is the email I get after every walk/park session. It includes a map of distance covered, photos of the dog in action and customized notes. So happy I found them! There's also a discount if you buy a block of walks in advance.

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!

Ann has been walking my dogs for about 6 weeks and the dogs and I have been very happy! She is very thorough on our initial interview and I felt very comfortable that she knows the dogs and their quirks very well. She communicates well and has been very reliable. I wouldn't hesitate to use her for dog/housesitting.

Marnie is a person of high moral integrity, is honest, dependable and very loving. She loves animals and has two pets who are her children. She has rescued homeless pets, seen to their medical treatments and found forever homes for them as she could. I've walked my vacationing friend's dog, Murphy with Marnie and her dog, Poochie on many occasions and Murphy loved Marnie. And Marnie has cared for other pet's and is the ideal pet sitter.

I always rest easy knowing that my beloved pet is being given such great care by Shelby while I am away from home traveling for work. She always texts the cutest picture updates which make me smile ( or sometimes laugh if they show my overly affectionate dog is trying to lick her face, LOL ). My pooch clearly adores Shelby, and it is so great having someone that you trust and who you know will give your pet amazing care while you are away from home.

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.

Celeste from Wily Critter Sitters has been amazing. I have two dogs that she has walked since they were 3 months old. They are now 11 months. They love her. She is flexible, reliable and truly loves animals. We appreciate her so much she is like family. We wouldn't be able to have the boys without her.

Heather and Katie were wonderful! They took great care of my pup, sent several updates throughout the day so I knew he was being very well taken care of. He had the best time, going on lots of walks and playing fetch. I appreciated that they treated my pup as if he were their dog. I will absolutely continue to use Puget Paws in the future.

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.
