My dog is 13+ years old with some sensitive hips and no longer is able to jump in the car to go get a bath. I called Michelle and she explained that she had a mobile trailer with easy ramps for her. When she came, she listened to my concerns about her hips and she took good care of her. My dog was a happy dog. I really liked how she was very gentle with my dog. I would recommend Simply Devine.

We had Steve train our Golden (puppy) and was amazed on how she turn out, no more biting, chewing. She now can walk with a leash by your side, she will sit and stay, down stay she comes when called. She was kennel trained and It took about three weeks and well worth it. you will need to work with your dog when you get home. You must watch the DVD, Steve can tell if you don't. If you want the perfect pet don't waste your time or money with the other guy's, Steve is the real deal!! Joe from Norco, Ca

Mobile Pet Spa came up as a result in a search on thumbtack in my zip code. They called me up immediately to notify me they don't service my area when they could have just ignored my inquiry so props to them for taking the time on a non-sale. They were professional and courteous on the phone and based on that I'd prob say they'd be worth checking out if you're in the area they service (farthest South is Venice). Seems like they'd be a good service to work with.

Sooozin is the best thing I could have brought into my home to care for and walk my 3 pugs and my kitty! She is caring and loving, communicative and fun. Her energy is infectious and she is just who you want for your pet care needs!! We all miss her services and big smile since she migrated to Cali! Erica P from Cape Cod :)

As all worried dog owners can relate, I'm extremely picky when it comes to who I let take care of my dog. However, I recently used L.A. Doggers Walking Service and could not be happier! They treat your dog like one of their own! My dog walker easily answered any questions I had; she even asked if there was anything to be aware of (e.g., other area dogs or cats to watch out for, busy streets, etc.) just to make sure the walks would be completely, totally safe. I'm proud to say L.A. Doggers is now my go-to source for dog walking. The prices are more than reasonable and you won't find a more loving, committed dog walker anywhere else! Doggone it, it's the truth. Call the Doggers!

Over the past 7 months I've had several trips out of town. Having recently moved before my first trip, I was very concerned about leaving my cat, Lucy. A friend recommended Over & Out Petsitting and they were great. Coming by beforehand to meet Lucy, to learn all her routines and taking notes to make sure everything would be done correctly. That first, 4 day trip went smoothly. I received text pictures of my cat everyday. And when I returned she was happy and healthy. My next trip a few months later was for a week. Again, everything was wonderful. My last trip I was gone 3 weeks - a long time. And once again, the service and care Lucy received was outstanding. I didn't worry about her which enabled me to enjoy my vacation. Over & Out Petsitting is on my speed dial - I will definitely use them to take care of my cat again.

I have a GSD with a serious case of separation anxiety. We got pet walkers to help and Jessie was one of them. Jessie was not afraid, took control, and my dog loves her. Jessie is prompt, will let you know if she notices anything wrong, and will make suggestions on food/training if you need help. She goes above and beyond - she helped search for my dog when sable escaped the vet/boarding kennel facility on her own time. I highly recommend Jessie's walking and overnight pet sitting.

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

Sabina was awesome...promt on our first meeting and very thougtful asking things I forgot about. I was sent pictures of my pets doing what they do best, and looking happy and very well cared for. One of mine needed shots twice a day....I had no worries which was refreshing given some past experiences. I would highly recommend Sabina for taking care of your pets and respecting your home in the process. 🙂🙂

We trust Kenny implicitly. He is so great with dogs and so proactive. He saw that her dog needed a bath and just jumped in and took care of him. I would recommend him to anyone. He's really the best.

I felt totally comfortable leaving my pets with Eva! I knew they were in good hands and with her knowledge about pet health (because of her career) put my mind even more at ease. I got pictures and text updates along the way which was awesome! My kittens love her! Definitely will be a repeat customer!! I don't think you'll find a person who loves cats more than her, even cats who don't belong to her :)

We have a 3 1/2 year old cat that is new (2 weeks) to our family. The vet suggested that the cat stay home and not be boarded while we are on a short trip. George (Wiskers, Tails and Mail) was very understanding of our situation. He took excellent care of our cat and her new environment (litter box, feeding area, etc.). George also kept me informed on her activities while we were away. Utilizing the services of Wiskers, Tails and Mail was a huge relief during our time away. I highly recommend George and his company as they really provide more then pet sitting. They also supply peace of mind for the owner. P.S. I ran out of time to have the mail stopped and at the last minute George stepped into collect the mail on a daily basis. What a life saver! George and Lorna, thanks for everything!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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.

How much does it cost to groom a dog?

Dog grooming costs depend on the service your pet requires. Nationally, the average price for dog grooming ranges from $40 to $100, varying by location. Not surprisingly, dog grooming on New York’s Upper East Side costs nearly double what it costs in a small town in Montana. Dog groomers typically handle every aspect of your dog’s beauty and hygiene, from tooth brushing to hairstyling. One potential way to save is to have your dog groomed at your doggy daycare — sometimes they offer discounts on dog grooming prices for clients. Here are some examples of average dog grooming costs in the San Francisco Bay Area. Please note these prices would include transportation fees for picking up and dropping off your dog to your home:

  • Nails: $30 a la carte or $20 when bundled with another service
  • Toothbrushing: $30 a la carte or $20 when bundled with another service
  • Tooth scraping (removal of plaque from teeth to prevent infection), with anesthesia: $600
  • Tooth scraping, without anesthesia: $400.
  • Wash and dry: $60
  • Ears: $30 a la carte or $20 when bundled with another service
  • Grooming package: $130 — includes wash, nails, teeth, ears, gland expression and haircut

    Well I adopted a cat about a year ago, I introduced them right away. The adopted cat is nice and backs down so I'm not sure why my resident cat always hisses at her and doesnt like her. My resident cat will no longer go anywhere in the house but my room. When she does go down stairs the adopted cat is fine until the resident cat runs upstairs..the adopted cat chases her up the stairs and I usually hear a hiss but thats it.
