When hiring a dog walker, it’s important to find a service that fits your budget but also to find a dog walker who is a good fit for you and your dog. Things to consider in addition to cost are:

  • How long do you want your dog walked for? Quick potty break? 30 minutes? An hour? How ever long he needs? Many dog walkers charge by time which means you pay more the longer your dog needs to be walked. At Ready Pet Go we believe quality is more important than quantity so our walks have no time limit, and we will walk and play with your dog for however long he needs.
  • Do you want your dog walked alone or in a group of other dogs? Group dog walks can pose some some health and safety concerns, and dogs don’t get as much individual attention in a group. At Ready Pet Go we only do private walks, meaning we will walk your dog alone unless you have multiple dogs in your household in which case, we can walk them together.
  • Is it important to you that your dog walker is an experienced professional from a reputable company that is fully bonded and insured? For many pup parents the peace of mind that comes with hiring an insured and experienced professional is more important than saving a few dollars. Ready Pet Go is fully bonded and insured through Pet Sitters Associates, and all of our walkers are trained pet care professionals who are certified in pet first aid.

Ready Pet Go’s Dog Walking Rates

At Ready Pet Go, we set our dog walking costs based on what we need to make in order to stay profitable as a business while paying our dog walkers a fair wage for the work they do. As a professional company, we have many business expenses, including insurance, taxes, registration fees, dog walking supplies, staff training and certification, and advertising, which impact the rates we’re able to offer. We do our best to keep our dog walking rates fair and reasonable and within the budget of most pet parents.

Our rate for dog walking is typically $23-$30 per walk, depending on how often you need your dog walked.
