All previous groomers were tramatized by my long haired cat Palucca. No one, other than her Vet, while she was under sedation, succeeded in completing the lion-cut. Of all the groomers Thumbtack and I reached out to, Anitra was the only one who responded with an enthusiastic readiness for "the challange." The communications that followed with Anitra persuaded me to entrust my monster cat Palucca to her. Anitra's confidence and exceptional sweet natured spirit were comforting, though I was understanably nervous, as all previous groomers who were unsuccessful had similar "no problem" attitudes, leaving my cat half shorn, wailing and hissing wildly. Palucca and I went to Anitra. I left her with smiling, lovely Anitra. Two hours later, Anitra said Palucca was drying after her bath / nail clip/ complete groom, so I could come pick her up. I was stunned. So quick? No tears and apologies? The lion-cut is perfect. Palucca is happy and beautiful. Anitra's experiece and rare gifts proved astonishingly successful. Both she and her assistant Debbie met me at the door smiling, laughing I think happy with this exemplary outcome. I recommend Anitra full heartedly. She's the best. Dog, cat, baboon: she has the gift. Anitra, Palucca and I look forward to a very long relationship. Boy oh boy, am I grateful. Palucca too. Splendid experience. Hoorah! B.D. G. Scottsdale, AZ

I required a person with knowledge and skill with old dogs, to take my aging Beagle to the vet for me, as I was going to be out of town. On very short notice, Beth responded to my request for help. I met her the evening I posted my need and she gave me confidence that she would take care of everything. She did! She was professional, but careing, responsive and responsible.

Rachael was excellent to work with, setting my mind at ease from the first meeting that she would handle taking care of my diabetic cat with compassion and professionalism. Her background as a vet tech is a definite bonus as well. I highly recommend her services!

She is very dependable, if we have to go somewhere, we can count on her to attempt to rearrange her schedule so that she can be here for us. She has always taken very good care of our pets and probably gives them more attention and affection than we do. She does the grooming whenever it is needed at very little additional cost and her prices are very reasonable!

Robin cared for my 2 pups for nearly 2 weeks and was very kind and caring to them. She even went as far as running to the vets office to pick up meds when my pups medication ran out. She also bathed them both before I got home and was kind enough to pick them up and drop them off as I don't drive. I would whole heartedly recommend Robin for pet sitting services. Kyle

I have 2 dogs that are getting on in years. Every once in a while my poodle will start yelping and hunch her back. The pain seems to last anywhere from a few hours to a few days. I took her to the vet and was told it was just arthritis and there wasn't much they could do. A friend recommended I try Lucky chow supplements. So I did after only 3 days of her taking the supplements Lucky Chow recommended her pain seemed to go away. I have also used their grooming services and highly recommend them. I will be back!!!

Diana took care of our young puppy and through attention and affection, helped our dear Jade recover from dehydration. She recognized Jade wasn't recovering normally from being spade and got her to the vet for an IV pronto. Then she stayed with Jade for several days making sure the poor puppy made it through the challenge of her life!

At first I was a little Leary of an at home groomer. I decided to leave Missy anyway, and I'm glad I did. Jennifer did a great job and my dog was happy. She did a much "finer" cut and detail than the local 'pets store' or my vet. Feet, nails, butt, ears were all clean and I'm pretty fussy. Thanks Jennifer. 🐶

Anton worked with us on training our Aussie puppy Bailey. Bailey was a little crazy and we knew we needed professional help to train him. Lorenzo's was referred by our vet, along with several other trainers. After speaking with each of the companies they referred and speaking to other personal recommendations we received from friends, we went with Lorenzo's. From the first time I spoke with Anton, I felt a trust in him. He was very understanding of what we wanted and worked with us until both he and the family thought Bailey was in a good place with his training. Anton was very understanding of each of our family members and where they were personally at with Bailey's training. He took the extra time on each session to make sure we were working with Bailey and comfortable with the lessons we had previously used, as well as the new lesson for the day. He was also very accommodating to our work and school schedules, which helped us tremendously. The cost of the training and tools were more expensive than what we were originally looking to spend, we feel that the training program was totally worth the expense. We continue to work with Bailey and his training on a personal level. What is even better is that we have the option to take him to group training sessions on a regular basis with Lorenzo's for as long as we would like. I would recommend Lorenzo's very highly.

    Amber is just awesome. She came out to do a basic health check on my cat and saved me a bunch of money and the hassle of a trip to the vet... you cat owners know what I'm talking about! She did such a great job that I'm planning on having her come back every few months.

      About

      I have a passion for what I do. I have wanted to work with animals since I can remember. I also have the experience medically with animals, and I am working on becoming a vet. With my tech background it gives me the chance to be able to offer services that other sitters can not since I am able to do and administer certain medical needs.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      What is included in a dog grooming?

      Dog grooming is so much more than giving your dog a bath. Dog grooming is a broad term that covers all aspects of canine cleanliness and hygiene. The services included in dog grooming will vary based on your needs and what you choose to pay. Unless they are rolling in cowpies or playing in mud puddles, most dogs are okay getting a shampoo bath only as needed. You’ll know when they need it if they smell bad or are bringing dirt into the house. Some dogs, like shepherds and shih tzus, have thick coats that can get matted and tangled without regular care. Pro dog groomers can deftly blow dry a dog’s hair after a bath so that it is shiny and smooth. Dog grooming can include brushing that detangles dog hair and also thins the undercoat to minimize shedding.

      Dog grooming also includes hygiene services such as toothbrushing and ear cleaning. Clean teeth are important to the health of your dog, and the pros have the patience and proper technique to get it done. Regular dog grooming can stave off tear stains, those reddish stains below your dog’s eyes. Anal gland expression is something not many people want to do on their own, even if they love their dog. A dog groomer can safely and efficiently release any blocked anal gland fluid. Other dog grooming services include nail trimming and clipping. Nationally, dog grooming prices range from $60 to $80. Most dog groomers offer discounts to customers who purchase monthly packages or bundle multiple grooming services at one time.

      What does a dog walker do?

      We all know our dogs love going on long, adventure-filled walks, but jobs and family and commuting can make it difficult to give them the leash time they deserve. You can hire a professional dog walker to make sure your furry friend gets adequate exercise and outdoor time each day. A professional dog walker may be an individual contractor or work for a dedicated dog-walking company. In either case, you want to make sure the pro has the appropriate insurance in case of an emergency. Some people opt to give the dog walker a key to their house; others to have them pick up the dog from the yard. Dog walking can happen as often as multiple times per day, or just a few times a month as needed. Here are some questions to ask when you are interviewing a new dog walker:  

      • Will you or someone else be walking my dog?
      • Do you have a backup plan if you can’t make it for a scheduled walk?
      • Will you walk my dog by itself, or do you walk several dogs at once?
      • What are your different walk routes?
      • When will you pick up and drop off?
      • How will we communicate?
      • Do I have to commit to a schedule or are you flexible?
      • What’s your cancellation policy?
      • What’s your response plan if my dog gets injured or becomes sick?
      • How and how often do I pay you?
      • Do you offer package pricing if I buy multiple dog walks up front?

      What is a dog groomer?

      A dog groomer is a service professional who provides dog grooming and basic hygiene care for your dog. Dog groomers are typically animal lovers who are competent and comfortable working with a wide range of dog breeds and temperaments. Dog groomers are knowledgeable about the care needs for different kinds of dog coats. A poodle will have different haircut needs than a shih tzu, for example, so it pays to have a trained pro provide the proper cut. Good dog groomers know how to safely clean your dog’s teeth, bathe your dog, and cut their nails without going too short. They understand how to trim the hair from around your dog’s face, express anal glands, and clean your dog’s ears. Many people who choose dog grooming as a profession also pursue other dog services such as attending veterinary school, running a doggy day care center, working as a professional dog walker, and more.

      What is a dog groomer?

      Keep your family dogs happy, healthy and clean with regular dog grooming. A dog groomer is a business owner or employee of a dog grooming business who specializes in dog hygiene and grooming. To find a reputable dog groomer, research reviews, ask for references and confirm that the groomer has good standing in the dog grooming community.

      A dog groomer should be comfortable and competent working with dogs of all breeds and temperaments. Typically a groomer will have trained with other groomers and taken educational courses to keep abreast of the latest safety information and techniques. There are brick-and-mortar dog grooming businesses, as well as mobile dog groomers who bring all their equipment and provide their services at your home or location. In some cases, brick-and-mortar businesses will also pick up and return your dog for an additional fee.

      What vaccines do dogs need to be groomed?

      It’s important to make sure your dog is up to date on its vaccines before taking it to a groomer. Vaccinations keep your dog and the other dogs that use the establishment healthy. Viruses can linger long after a dog is gone, so an unvaccinated dog can infect a number of other dogs days or even months after their visit. Find out about your dog groomer’s vaccination policies, and think carefully about receiving services from a company that does not require vaccinations. Here are the main vaccinations that are generally required for dog grooming:

      • Parvovirus: Parvo is a nasty virus that can kill dogs within 48-72 hours of infection. The virus is incredibly persistent and, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association, is resistant to heat, cold, humidity and drying. It’s spread by dog-to-dog contact or contact with contaminated feces, environments (food and water bowls, collars and leashes, etc.,) or people.
      • Adenovirus 2: Dogs receive this vaccination to protect against canine infectious hepatitis. The vaccination can also helps prevent canine cough.
      • Canine distemper virus: Distemper has no known cure and can cause serious pain, illness, and even death, although recovery is possible with medical intervention.  
      • Rabies: This disease attacks the central nervous system and — when untreated — will
      • lead to death. The CDC recommends euthanizing an unvaccinated animal that has been exposed to rabies, although six-month isolation followed by vaccination is also permissible.
      • Para-influenza: Canine para-influenza leads to kennel cough and an unhappy dog.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
