Dog Walk puppy help
"Di was wonderful, very reliable, great communicator, very easygoing and made leaving my beloved pets stress free knowing they would be cared for. She made extra arrangements for them so they would be safe during a heatwave which was incredibly appreciated. She also cared for them over the Christmas period which was an absolute blessing. I will not hesitate to request her service again and I 100% recommend her to anyone looking for a highly reliable pet sitter. "

Dogs need regular exercise, and some breeds may require more activity than others. But it’s not all the time that we, their beloved humans, can do enough to satisfy their urge to move. Luckily, there’s Airtasker: a platform where you can easily find dog walkers in your area who can help give your pets the exercise they crave.
Here’s why Airtasker is excellent for both you and your pet: first, you’ll get offers from local dog walkers near you. These Taskers are from your community, so they’ll know their way around and can pick up and drop off your pet quickly. Next, the dog walkers are reviewed and rated by other fur parents near you, so it’s like getting recommendations (but faster than asking friends on social media). Third, your Tasker will base their fee on your needs - perfect for pet owners on a budget.
If you want to book a trusted dog walker within minutes, you’ve come to the right place! Just tap the “Post a task” button to find a dog walker near you.
When you hire a dog walker on Airtasker, you’re covered by our insurance policies.
Get the best dog walker near you - use our transparent ratings and reviews system to confidently hire someone who will love your dog.
Stay on budget with the most affordable dog walking services.
Post your task and you’ll start to hear back from available dog walkers within minutes.
According to experts, dogs should get two 15-minute walks per day, though some breeds are okay with once a day walks, while some require much more physical activity. Find what makes your dog happy, but avoid overexercising them. If you can only give time for a couple of walks a week or are physically unable to walk them (e.g. due to injuries), you can book a dog walking specialist via Airtasker.
Professional dog walkers don’t need to have a licence in countries like the UK. This means that anyone can start a dog walking business. If you’d like to do a credentials check on your potential dog walker or Tasker, check their customer ratings, ask for references, conduct an interview, and ask them for a meet-and-greet so that the real client - your pet can judge them!
Ask your dog walking specialist how long they’ve been doing their job, and if they have a contract or service agreement. Inquire if they can provide a free meet-and-greet or consultation with your pet, to see if they can get along. Next, ask about insurance coverage, and their policies for bad weather, key-keeping, scheduling, and cancellation. Ask how many dogs they handle on one walk, what supplies they carry, and how they’ve handled emergencies.
First, make sure your dog follows the walker’s policies such as vaccination, deworming, and spaying/neutering. Next, provide supplies: an appropriate leash, collar and harness, waste bags, maybe even a doggie water bottle. Next, make sure your dog knows basic commands such as “Sit” and “Stay”, and can follow these rules on the road, especially at crosswalks and street corners. Finally, prepare the keys to your house and make sure they’re easy to use while handling your dog.
You can easily find a dog walker near you here on Airtasker! To start, tap “Post a task” and indicate all the details of the job such as the type of dog/s you have, your location, budget, etc. Then, tap “Get quotes” and wait for offers from dog walking services near you. Once they arrive, sift through the offers until you find one that fits your needs. Tap to confirm your appointment, and you’re all set!
Yes, they can, but they must take extra care when walking dogs using bridleways. If you’re from England or Wales, follow the Countryside Code and make sure your dog doesn’t run through crops, frighten livestock, disturb undergrowth, or be at risk from passing vehicles. To be on the safe side, tell your dog walker to keep your dog on the leash and clean up their mess to avoid any untoward situations with farm owners.
Our dog walking specialists can help you give your pet the exercise they need, even while you’re away. This means supervising their walk and even encouraging them to socialise with other dogs. While the details of each job may vary among Taskers and can even depend on your pet’s needs, here’s what’s typically included when you request a dog walking service through Airtasker.
Your Tasker will need access to your house or apartment to pick up and drop off your dog. Once you’ve given them a copy of your keys, they can easily fetch your pet, lock up your house, and take your dog for a walk.
Afterwards, they’ll drop off your pet and make sure they have enough food and water. If necessary, your Tasker may also towel off your dog and wipe their paws to prevent tracking in dirt. After giving a few more pets and cuddles and making sure your dog is comfortable, your walker will lock up the house and be on their way.
Note: If your Tasker is handling more than one client’s pets, you can expect a couple of other dogs to be in your home for a few minutes while your dog is being picked up or dropped off. If you worry about your house’s cleanliness, talk to your Tasker about making sure these other dogs stay on-leash and supervised at all times - or opt for a solo dog walking arrangement.
The bulk of your dog walker’s job is to get your pet moving. They’ll make sure your pet is happy, comfortable, and safe while on their walk. This includes following your instructions, helping your dog socialise, and giving lots of love and attention.
Typical dog walkers usually handle more than one owner’s pets - which means your dog can make several new friends on their regular walks. Because of this, it’s essential to make sure your dog is vaccinated, dewormed, and is trained or socialised. To be safe, some Taskers require dogs to be neutered or spayed. Ask your Tasker about their policies, or specify in your task post if you’d prefer to have your dog walked solo or in a pack.
Your Tasker also takes charge of cleaning your dog’s mess and making sure they don’t destroy any property during their walk. Taskers usually have their supply of waste bags, but you can provide your own.
In case of emergencies, your Tasker must have your contact information and that of your vet. While your dog walker will work to keep your pet safe, it won’t hurt to give them this information beforehand.
Need a hand with other household tasks while you’re out? Airtasker can also help you book sitters for your dog or house, or even help make sure your pantry is stocked. In just a few taps, you can get more done!

I am heading away tomorrow (friday) evening and returning Sunday afternoon and my friend who was staying at my place has just cancelled. I require a trustworthy animal lover to feed my dog Saturday morning, afternoon and Sunday morning, as well as take him for a walk/play fetch with him for a little bit.

Need someone to come over this Saturday to give our dog some food (supplied), fill up water bowl and take her for a walk for 45-60 mins. Once off for the dog sitting, but possibly continue as a regular / casual occurrence for dog walking if mutually happy. We have a 7 year old Bernese Mountain dog named Spirit. She’s generally pretty good on the lead however hasn’t been walked for >1 week now so will likely be high energy initially. Has been trained in recall, will always come back to the call ‘ spirit come!’ & also ‘leave’ along with the standard sit, stay, drop etc. She has a beautiful temperament, friendly with other dogs & all people. She loves affection! Located Manly West, would like it to be an easy, convenient arrangement where you pick her up via side gate & drop her off, so must be comfortable with this. Will leave the bag of food out. Flexible with what time on the Saturday, so whatever suits you best.
Thanks Emi!! Recommend & will use again in future
