OLK9 is the best. All of our friends want to bring their dogs now that they see how happy and free (off leash) our dogs are. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to have a highly obedient dog. Your quality of life will increase tremendously as well as your dog's.

    We offer pick un and drop off in Ft. Smith, Ar


    I am a hardworking, honest, polite young woman looking to take on a few more clients for housekeeping. I am a perfectionist who enjoys cleaning and organizing, and I don't mind doing the things in your home or office that you don't want to do or don't have time for in your busy schedule. Most of my clients have been individuals looking for help in their homes for 1-2 days a week, but I also do offices, move-out cleaning, and general personal assistance, and I am open to new opportunities. I love animals and have education in animal medicine (working on my veterinary technician license) and years of experience in working with animals. I would be happy to care for your pet(s) in your home to minimize their stress and yours. References are available upon request.


    I clean very good. I watch children or elderly and run errands. I also do laundry and house or pet sit, and when needed, I mow lawns, plant and clean cars.

    I will sit with pets days/or nights. I am professional and caring, and will provide all the love and care your pet needs while you are away.


    I am 20 years old, and I have grown up around pets my whole life. I love animals, and I would do anything for them. As a child growing up, I constantly would be around animals because of the passion I have for them. I used to have five dogs, but as time goes by, so does their age, and I am down to two. I have three cats and a very lovable pet turtle. I have experience in taking care of animals through the different house-sitting opportunities that I've had.

    I've been a nurse, but I've always loved and respected all living things. It would be my pleasure to keep your pet company when you are gone. My Lexie would get so lonely when I was gone for my long shifts and when she had someone stay with her, she was thrilled, so I understand.


    We offer great care for a reasonable price . Full service dog grooming , boarding over 25 years experience .


    I take care of pets for one family at a time. I take care of pets in there own home or at my home. I live on a quiet county road.


    I am from China and have been here for half a year. I am a senior in Fayetteville High School. I'd like to work with animals, and I want to be veterinarian. So I hope that I can find a job here.

I will walk your pets and sit with them, overnight if needed, and I can pick them up and drop them off at their doctor's appointments. I can also give medication or shots if needed. I will travel to your home or work to take care of your pet. I will provide transportation for your pet anywhere in the United States. Details are to be worked out ahead of time with the client.

    My work stands out from others because I have such a deep connection to helping animals. Dog sitting isn't just a source of income, but rather a passion of mine that I have done voluntarily in the past to gain experience and understanding of animals.

    I was in a pet/babysitting club for about six years. I've been one of the top pet/babysitters in the group due to the amount of requests I've gotten from people in my neighborhood.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How much does boarding a horse cost?

    Finding the right horse boarding location is a big step in a horse owner’s life. This will be the place your horse will live and where you will visit multiple times per week or even daily. The cost of horse boarding will depend on the level of service you desire, the location of the stables, and the luxury level of the property. Here are some examples of average horse boarding costs:

    • Overnight stabling: $30 per horse per night.
    • Partial boarding (owner feeds and mucks): $220 per horse per month, with a three-month commitment.
      • Administration of oral medication: $10 per dose.
      • Bandaging: $20 per event, plus cost of materials.
      • Trailering to vet if owner is unable: $25, plus $25 per hour to wait with horse.
    • Basic full boarding: $325-$350 per month per horse. Includes twice daily hay and daily stall cleaning.
      • Horse training: $20 per session.
      • Pasture turn out: $20 per session.
      • Blanketing: $1 per day/$30 per month.
      • Vet or farrier hold: $20. This means haltering the horse and standing with it as it receives treatment or shoeing.

    Where can I board my horse?

    You can board your horse at any barn or stable that provides horse boarding services. To find horse boarding near you, read reviews of area locations and speak with equestrian friends to find one with a solid reputation. Ideally, the location will be within a reasonable drive from your home or office. This is especially important if you are paying for partial boarding services and are responsible for feeding your horse and cleaning its stall each day. You may choose your boarding barn or stables based on the services they provide. Some offer more extensive amenities — at an added price — that reduce the amount of work you need to do to keep your horse comfortable. Consider whether you want training, blanketing, exercise and other perks in addition to standard offerings like hay and stable mucking. Your stable may have temperament requirements and proof that your horse has the proper vaccinations required by your state. This protects both your horse and the other horses in the stable. Many states require that locations offering horse boarding services have stable licenses that are renewed each year. Always be sure to enter into a clearly written boarding contract that will cover your horse and belongings in case of accident, and remember our tips for smart hiring.

    What is horse boarding?

    Horse boarding is like rental housing for your horse. Horse boarding is helpful for people who don’t have the space or the resources to install and maintain a stable on their property. A horse can be housed in a barn with other horses and receive the care they need. Owners can visit their horse for riding, grooming, training, etc. Horse boarding services may vary based on the company and the price. Some horse boarders may offer short-term boarding of 24 hours to several nights for people passing through an area, while most offer boarding by the month for horses whose owners live in the area. There is partial- and full-service boarding, which indicates how much of the work of feeding the horse and cleaning the stall is the responsibility of the owner rather than the boarding barn. For an added fee, horse boarding can also include grooming services, riding and training, medication administration, and more.

    To find the right boarding fit for you and your horse, make a list of your top priorities. These might include immediate access to riding trails, round-the-clock supervision, or a nearby or affiliated veterinarian. Always visit the site to learn exactly where your horse will be kept and whether the barn and grounds are in good condition. Read reviews, and always practice smart hiring. It’s also critical to sign the proper legal documents that protect both you and your horse, such as boarding agreements. Above all, make sure it seems like a place your horse will be comfortable between your visits.
