Susan has been walking my dog Cody for 3yrs now and I couldn't be more happier with her service. She is very dependable and trustworthy person. She is very reliable as well as she always lets me know in advance if she will be out of town. Her service is beyond my expectations. She brushes Cody and sprays doggie perfume so he always smell nice when I get home. She also carries water bottles for him if it is hot outside. After the walk she spends some time bonding with Cody. My Golden Retriever Cody absolutely adores her and is always excited to see her. Susan has a terrific personality and is very responsible and caring dog walker. I really couldn't ask for more. I will always highly recommend Susan for her services and I hope she can walk Cody as long as he is able. I am very happy that I found someone like Susan. Sylvie Warzinski

Denise has been cat sitting for me for about a year and I could not be happier. Not only does she scoop the poop and feed and water my fur baby, she takes the time to pet and brush her. She is a cat and dog owner so she knows the ins and outs. I definitely would recommend Denise to care for your pet.

      Vanessa has helped sit for my dogs when I was out of town for work on several occassions. She is very responsible and trustworthy. I had all faith my dogs were in good hands during my absence. I would recommemd her highly as the BEST! Plus, my dogs were spoiled with LOVE! Much better than boarding with the flexibility and comfort of them staying at home.

        In the first year of his life, my Great Dane had worked his way through two dog trainers and five dog walkers. The latest trainer- a certified animal behaviorist, had recommended we put out 9 month old puppy on prozac. My husband and I were against the idea, but decided to have the conversation with our vet. He absolutely refused and then recommended we talk to Kyra. Fast forward two years. Thanks to Kyra (and Comfy K9s) we watched our misunderstood, misbehaved puppy grow into a respectful, loving, well behaved family member. When it comes to training, except to work. Kyra takes her role very seriously. She won’t let you fail your dog. The number one thing that separates her from any other trainer, behaviorist, dog walker- I've worked with is her passion. She wants to help and she'll get it done any way it takes. She reads. She studies. She asks questions. The training is customized to your dog’s individual needs. And, she truly cares about you and your dog. When everyone gave up on our dog, she was there. She’s reliable. I know I can call her anytime and Comfy K9s will take care of us. (They're actually on my emergency contact list!) Kyra is trustworthy. She’s genuine. She will make your dog shine.

          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.
