Punctual, professional and very thorough! I would recommend Jess to anyone looking- she also didn't seem to be bothered one bit by my curious dogs who wanted to "help" her.

Cassidy does a great job with our Goldendoodle Doug! We have her stop at least twice a week to let Doug out, take him for a walk and play with him. Cassidy has even started to teach Doug some new commands. She communicates well and lets us know when she arrives and leaves. We would recommend Cassidy to anyone that needs a dog walker, pet sitter or just someone to spend some extra time with their dog.

We worked with Sarah for 6 weeks with our dog, Diggie, on his visitor anxiety at our home. She was quick to diagnosis Diggie's issues and came every week ready with strategies and tools to help us. Sarah was always professional and knowledgable, answering all our questions, while still making us feel very comfortable with what we needed to do and providing us with feedback. After the 6 weeks, Diggie has come a long way, mastering basic commands that will help his anxiety and a plan to continue his progress. We would definitely recommend her to anyone who loves their dogs, but not their behaviors.

Michelle was great to work with and our dogs loved her. We hired Michelle to help us with our two dogs during our engagement photos as they would be in some photos and not in others. She walked them around the area and hung out with us when they were in the photos, helping to get their attention to the camera. It was a cold, windy day and she stuck with us with a great attitude. You can tell Michelle really loves dogs and walking and we were really glad we hired her.

A mutual friend recommended Amie to me and I had her watch my dog over a long weekend this past summer. He's getting older, and he doesn't react well to stress. When I've had him back from a boarding in the past I can tell his stomach was bothering him and he wasn't eating right. When I got back from Amie he was his normal self. Thanks Amie!

Mary has watched our two dogs Dakota and Tucker numerous times and has stayed with them overnight. Mary has always been extremely reliable and enjoyed watching our dogs; she is very knowledgeable when it comes to animals behaviors. I totally trust Mary with our dogs and I highly recommend her to watch your animals. Mary is also always punctual and very communicative to let us know how our dogs behaved while we were away. Our older dog Dakota also has a mean streak every now and then that Mary knew how to handle and was extremely patient with Dakota for which our family is thankful.

      My personality and vibe stand out because any dog I have met are very loving with me and that's because I can communicate with them in calm manner. That makes it easier to play with the dog and show it affection.

      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.
