I am pleased that I selected Loving Paws when we went out of state for a week in July. Peggy did go above and beyond as others have said. She did a very thorough interview at our house in Martinez before we left. I felt we were leaving our 4 cats in good hands. Peggy texted me several times to let me know how things were going. She was willing to brush the cats (but we didn't know where the brush was). She brought over her boom box so they could have music 24/7. We also had her water our plants for an additional charge. She collected the mail as part of her pet care taking. She came once a day and scooped the boxes daily. During one extremely hot day, she came by twice at no extra charge. Loving Paws is not a cut rate operation. The cost was more than boarding our dog. But it was worth it to have peace of mind. Previous friends and other businesses were overwhelmed by our felines. One is a bully and one is quite elderly. They all came through just fine, as did the plants. A paws up to Loving Paws!

Susi was wonderful and responsible. She came to meet me prior to my trip and asked a lot of thoughtful questions about what I would like her to do. She was very responsive to all of my messages, including when I needed to add on an extra day of pet sitting at the last minute. It was really nice to go out of town and know that my three cats were in good hands.

Ann's animal boarding is fantastic. They satisfy our needs and worries. Honestly, my boyfriend and I afraid to travel since we have two chihuahuas and one kitty . We had experienced serveral failed dog boarding at else places, expensive costs and pets at home sickly afterwards that kept us not dare to try. Usually call friends to help out. However, this time no one available and we need to go business trips for two weeks. Thank you so much Yang, your family saved us. I love the short video you sent to us everyday and our dogs lively when we back. Can't wait our next trip.

Wonderful job. Took care of the cat and was very responsive. Even did me a favor and put some food away in the freezer so it wouldn't spoil.

I had KeChaunte Johnson watch my two bichon frise dogs for a weekend. The oldest is calm but the youngest puppy can be rowdy. She was able to handle all the responsibilities I gave her. I definitely recommend her!

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.
