How much do you pay someone to walk your dog?

My dog is a pain to walk with the kids and she could use the one-on-one time and get some good exercise that we're not able to give her right now. We are just looking for a teenager who would love to make a few bucks but not sure what to pay. Please help!

  • How long of a walk? If it's just around the neighborhood or something, I think $5 would be just fine. If you want them to keep your dog our for an hour or something, $8 or so would be fair I think.

  • If it is just like a 30 min walk I would pay $5, for an hour walk I would pay $10.

  • I used to do this and I was probably not paid very much but I didnt mind. I think it came to about $5 per walk and some change.

  • My husband walks the dogs himself...and they were both PAINS at first. They've done it so many times now that they are great to walk with :) Maybe hubby can walk them around for awhile to get them the attention?

  • My husband does it or I kick his butt. Theyre big dogs and its hard for me with a baby. but ill walk them if my husband has the baby. Just learn some training techniques and work with them. If you have to pay somebody I would get somebody that I know or soembody that was referred. I have a hard time trusting people.

  • People do this and get paid??? I need to look into this. Getting paid five dollars to get exercise and pretend to have a cool dog. Awesome!
