Your dog is THE best. Your cat’s the meow. Your fish has no feelings, but there’s a tenderness in that beady eye when he swims by. Isn’t it about time you reciprocate the love? Shower your pets with goodness. Thumbtack’s seven most popular pet services will keep your favorite family members pampered and make you the hero of the house.
Dog Training – Private or Group Lessons
Dogs love boundaries and—as their pack leader—it’s your job to implement them. From behavior modification (please, not the Louboutins), to obedience (imagine, no more embarrassment at the dog park), to socialization for your overly shy or aggressive pup, those quirks can be addressed. Even more special, have your dog trained to be a service animal or to provide assistance with disabilities or special needs.
Pee spots on the carpet. Not awesome. Walk off pee woes with a dog-walking service. Hook it up on the regular—we’re talking twice a day if necessary—or a one-time shot during a busy spell—ensure that new overdyed rug doesn’t get unintentional stains. Pro tip: negotiate feeding and medication into the request if needed.
Pet sitting is a game changer. You can take vacation! Thumbtack’s interactive request form caters to pretty much any housesitting need. Drop by, spend the night, total care for the pet, just feeding, changing litter and grooming—whatever your lizard, rabbit, puppy, parrot, or siamese might need, these animal lovers have got you covered.
You see, dog groomers offer so much more than just a terrific wash for your buddy. They brush those stanky teeth. They clean grody ears and trim nails and de-mat fur and remove fleas. Only problem is now you don’t have an excuse to keep pup out of your bed.
Taking the little lion to a cat show? Cat groomer. Poor bubba have too much fur? Let a pro handle that. Just want kitty to be pretty? Get him fluffed out in style.
Dog Fence Installation
Like everything on Thumbtack, dog fence installation is customizable to your needs. Maybe your current fence is cute but ineffective against the superdog digging skills Turbo displays when escaping each day. Maybe you have no fence and want to keep your new puppy from wandering off. Or maybe your athletic dog is too badass to NOT jump over the existing gate. From chain link to specialized wood, get the right fit for your yard with a quote you’re comfortable with.
Dogs are social creatures. And unless your baby suffers from severe anxiety or aggression, doggy daycare is pretty dang radical. Instead of staring at the back door, waiting for you to get home, they get stimulation, social time with other canines, and exercise. Find the right fit for your sweetie and be sure to tour the site first. Make sure the daycare does a personality assessment, so your dog is matched with appropriate pals. And hey, now you won’t feel guilty when you stay after work for happy hour.
It’s easy to show your love with the services the animal-loving pros at Thumbtack provide. Just kick back and reap the benefits.
