Your Dog Walking questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much do dog walkers charge?

Dog walkers charge $10 to $35 per walk or $30 to $60 per hour, depending on your location, number of dogs, and the number of walks you schedule. Some dog walkers charge 50% more if you have two dogs, but you may find one that offers discounted weekly or monthly rates for pre-scheduling ongoing walking services. 

  • Holidays typically add $5 to $10 extra per walk
  • Many dog walkers also offer a $5 to $10 discount if they can walk your dog with other dogs.

Do you tip dog walkers?

While most dog walkers do not expect a tip, tipping 15% to 20% is a good rule of thumb to show your appreciation for their good service or if your dog needs special care or handling. Leaving a positive online review also shows appreciation while helping them build their business. 

What does a dog walker do?

A dog walker walks your dog for a scheduled amount of time, typically on a pre-determined route, to ensure they get sufficient exercise and can go to the bathroom while you are away. Dog walkers dispose of any waste from the walk, make sure your dog is safe and hydrated, and may also feed them upon request.

Most dogs do well with one 20- to 30-minute walk per day. Puppies and more active dogs typically need two or three walks per day and may need longer walks.

How do I choose the best dog walker near me?

When searching for a dog walker, be sure to:

  • Choose an experienced, insured dog walker who has a business license.
  • Look for members of professional organizations, such as the National association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS), Professional United Pet Sitters (P.U.P.S.), or the Association of Pet Sitting Excellence (APSE).
  • Check their reviews on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Ask for and check their references.
  • Arrange a meetup before the first walk to make sure he or she is a good fit for both you and your dog.

What questions should I ask when hiring a dog walker?

Ask the following questions to ensure you find the best dog walker near you:

  • What experience do you have?
  • Do you belong to any professional organizations?
  • Can we schedule a meet and greet beforehand?
  • What is included in your standard rate?
  • What is the rate if I have more than one dog?
  • Do you charge extra for specific breeds?
  • Do you offer any discounts or package deals?
  • How and when do I pay for your service?
  • Do you offer behavior training?
  • Are you trained in pet CPR?
  • What is your protocol if there is an emergency, and my dog needs immediate medical help?
  • How do I get in touch with you?
  • Do you update me after each walk?

Regal Dog Training assisted in locating and training my German Shepherd puppy Echo. In four months time Echo came home to me completely potty trained, with all her basic commands, including sit, wait, leave it, directional commands that we use in distance running. I could not recommend their services enough. We will be adopting one of their Golden Retriever puppies and having that puppy trained by Regal Dog Training. My only recommendation to anyone who has a dog trained is to remember to constantly reinforce trained commands as most dogs will forget some of their training.
