After moving my dog, Kiki (a Siberian Husky), was having really bad co dependency issues once we separated her with my other dog. She would scream and cry every time she was left alone or was even with someone; she was absolutely unbearable. My only options were to somehow make her stop crying or give her up. I made the call the Steve and immediately I felt like there was hope. The very next day I took Kiki to the facility. They(Steve and his whole team) made me feel really comfortable and reassured me that she was in excellent hands. I picked Kiki up about 2 1/2 weeks later (which is longer than most dog, since she had extreme anxiety issues) and her crying was gone. On top of that, she knows her basic commands, which is so exciting. Steve and his team are so great, I never hesitate call if I have any questions. If any of the problems are not resolved with the dog, they are so quick to go to you to fix it, which gives me peace of mind. I highly recommend Steve to anyone with dog(s) with any behavioral problems and/or just any kind of obedience needs.

We needed help with our 4 month old English bulldog. She came in the same day we made contact and gave us great tips and pointers from food, vets, and training. She was really patient, kind and professional. She knew what she was talking about and is perfect if you are looking for a local dog trainer. Thus far we have met just once but I highly recommend her and we plan on having her back to our home for additional training.

**Dave "gets" dogs, and its clear the dogs "get" Dave too. He is up to date and very knowledgable on the science ( vs so many myths and common misconceptions) of how to motivate dogs and bases his training from science utelizing positive training methods. * He taught me "clicker" style training without the clicker) and how to improve my timing for marking behavior for reinforcement. It has made a positive difference to "come when called" and in obedience when on walks. **Dave is prompt, personable, and straightforward in communication. He was very understanding when appointments needed to be rescheduled and then cancelled for a few months. ***His genuine concern for the dog ,( and their human), is evident. Dave is a delight to work with. I wholeheartedly recommend him.... almost as much as Leo Lambchop, my little Maltese poodle

Robin has pet sat for all of our dogs and cats over the years. She loves and cares for them as if they were her own. When we return from vacation, we sometimes think our pets would rather have her stay longer than watch us come home, as they get daily massages and 24/7 attention in her presence. She is also a fantastic pet photographer and sends us photo updates during her stay at our home. She brings her own food and cleans the sheets and towels she uses before we return. She sometimes has other client jobs during our job, but she asks us ahead of time. Since the jobs are usually feeding a cat across town, which takes an hour or two, we don't have a problem with it. All of our pets are seniors that require medication on specific schedules. Robin is really good about taking care of geriatric animals (guinea pigs included), which allow us the peace of mind to leave for an important family event, one of us would not otherwise be able to attend.

At the last minute I required a sitter for my special needs senior dog Xena. Alicia came over and immediately I knew we had found the right fit. Xena requires lots of potty breaks with the use of a sling which can often scare people and Alicia was happy to take on the challenge. I would recommend her to anyone!

To whom it may concern, I am writing to recommend Jo-Jeanne Rapier, whom I have known and employed for the past nine years. Jo-Jeanne provided day care, walks, medication administering, boarding, and transportation for my Border Collie, Cilla as well as house sitting, as I was often working out of town. Sometimes those jobs came on short notice and I came to rely heavily on her services and with her dependability, punctuality and trustworthiness, I was never disappointed. I always returned to a happy, healthy, and well groomed dog, my house in pristine condition, and with Jo-Jeanne’s green thumb, my garden always looked better than how I left it. In the final months of Cilla’s life, Jo-Jeanne’s compassionate care was invaluable. She doted on Cilla, as if she was her own, and made that difficult time in Cilla’s life, and mine, an easier transition. With Jo-Jeanne’s past involvement of running her own dog rescue, Abandoned Terrier Rescue Association, she is also a staunch advocate of animal rights. And I have witnessed first hand her skills and abilities in working with many kinds of animals and I would give her my highest recommendation with the care of any of your pets. If I can provide any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me at: (818)-434-1123 Sincerely, Eric Sandlin

Finding a responsible, caring and professional dog sitter is more than a pet owner can ask for. Arlene not only asked me all the right questions, but also tuned into all of Odin's subtle yet critical (signals) body language. With this, she successfully assisted and aided his every need. Odin is not just my senior canine, but he also has special needs that require 24hr. care and observation. Arlene's compassion and patience not only put all the animals at ease in my home but her professional demeanor was also reflected through the relationships that she established in my home with my fur babies. Arlene quickly established a connection with my dog and assisted him with all of his needs (getting up, re-adjusting,and going potty) as well as administered all of his meds., not to mention cared for my cats as well. If it were not for Arlene, I would not have been able to take my trip with peace of mind. I plan to use Arlene as a regular sitter and Strongly recommend Arlene as a pet sitter/care giver

Lynn and Jared are absolutely WONDERFUL!!! They truly love animals and it really shows. We have used them for years now and each time we feel comfortable, confident and rest assured that our furry bunch will be well taken care of. We have 4 dogs and 4 cats and all of them love, love, love Lynn and Jared very much. They get a ton of love and attention and are all very happy and healthy upon our return. Lynn and Jared treat all of our pets as if they were their own. Other petsitters charge in 30-minute increments and only stay for the time you pay for. Lynn and Jared stay as long as needed to get everything done and to make sure everyone gets a lot of attention. They make sure the house is cleaner than they found it, which is truly appreciated. They clean the dog waste in the backyard and keep the litter boxes nice and clean. They leave detailed notes on each visit and what each pet was up to. They bring in the mail and take out the trash on trash day to keep up the appearance that people are still home. They do not charge extra for giving medication, getting the mail, watering plants, etc., as many others do. All of that is included in their already very reasonable prices. Their contractor Amanda is also WONDERFUL. She is very sweet and hard working as well. She has the same love for animals as Lynn and Jared, treating ours as if her own. Our animals all love her too. Amanda holds the same values, principles and hard work ethic that the owners have established as the foundation for their business and it really shows in her work and dedication. She also makes sure that the pets are happy and healthy and the house is clean and orderly. I couldn't thank all of them enough for everything they do for our furry bunch... and with 8 animals that is truly an amazing feat! I would highly recommend Truly TLC Pet Sitting.

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.
