Astrid is a lifesaver! Not only is she reliable, she instinctively knows whats best for my furry friend, Jake. After moving across the country, Jake had been acting out, barking and charging at anyone who tried to come over, even friends. I was so stressed trying to find a dog sitter as I was new to town and had to travel for work. Astrid was amazing with Jake! She took the time to get to know him and know they are best buds. I would highly recommend her for your dog sitting/walking needs.
Lisa is amazing! She is so warm and nurturing, it makes my daughter so comfortable! She is flexible with our schedule and accommodating. My daughter loves Lisa and her horse Tinkerbell. We are extremely happy!! Thank you Lisa!!
Aunt Kit was a great pet sitter. She played with my dogs, gave them love and sent me pictures and videos while I was away. It really eased my mind to know they were okay, to receive daily updates and the pictures.
Great learning experience. I appreciate their expertise in teaching and how they handle their horses. My daughter is so happy to ride here. The teachers and staff are wonderful. We have taken extra classes on handling the horses which are informative and fun.
Very prompt and courteous sitter. Great personality and very good with my animals. I will use him again. Thank you
Jennifer Lind is the first person I call for pet-sitting, and for any help with animals. She is knowledgeable and experienced, and seems to bond well with every living creature. She raised her incredible horse from the time he was a tiny foal and has a bond with him that is the stuff of young girls' dreams. Each time I speak with Jennifer, she has a new animal experience to share. She and her family recently rescued and raised baby squirrels. Jen has currently been raising goats that follow her around outside. When our little dog was missing, we called Jen to help search for her on her horse. Jen discovered a buck with his antlers thoroughly tangled in our rope hammock! We rounded up some wrangler-types to help cut the buck's antlers loose. In the midst of the procedure, someone needed to sit on the buck to keep him still on the ground while others cut through the woven ropes of the hammock. The person who straddled that buck was, of course, Jennifer. Jen is a kind and compassionate young lady. She is polite and ever willing to help and to go the extra mile. She has determination and follow-through, the ability and the integrity to get the job done. She knows what she's doing, she loves what she's doing, and she gets the job done well. I have had much experience with Jennifer Lind and couldn't recommend her more highly.
I have been working with Codi now for five months and she is outstanding. Her training style is adaptive to the horse and rider and she goes above and beyond to find flexible times that work for your schedule. I would definitely encourage anyone looking for a trainer or for a new instructor to contact her!
I am so grateful to have found Karen on Thumbtack. She is my cats' new best friend and will be my go-to pet-sitter for all of my future pet-sitting needs. Karen is great at communicating, punctual, reliable, and most importantly she truly wants to make the experience the best it can be for whoever she is taking care of. She took wonderful care of my cat. I highly recommend her and her pet-sitting services.
Stay Pet Care was an excellent choice. We have two 12 years old ShihTzus and needed a pet sitter who would be able to stay with them while we were on a short trip. We interviewed Sara Reynolds and felt comfortable leaving our fur babies with her in our home. She took pictures of our "girls" and sent them to show us how relaxed they were under her care. She took them on walks and also picked up our mail as well as cared for our house. One dog needs medication and Sara was proficient in giving it. I will not hesitate to call on Sara again when we travel. She washed sheets and towels, made sure the kitchen and bath was clean, and kept in touch with us during our time away. So happy we met her and appreciate her work!
Jenn has been our dog sitter for 10 years, our housekeeper for 5 years, and our 3 year old's nanny since he was born. She does an excellent job with our toddler. Jenn does educational activities with him, and also takes him fun/educational places. She is very attentive to him, and we feel he is extremely safe in her care. In addition to pet and house sitting when we go on vacation, Jenn checks on our animals while she is watching the baby. Jenn always cleans up after the baby. In addition she cleans our entire home 1 to 3 times a month as requested. She does an excellent job and is worth every dime we pay her.
Tara is one of the best instructors I've ridden with and is especially amazing on the training side. She has a ton of expertise with green horses and is is an all-around excellent horsewoman. Cottonwood offers a great, diverse lesson program; a warm, family-friendly atmosphere; a gorgeous cross country course and some of the BEST scenery and trails around. We board our young horse there and could not be happier.
Veronica dog sat our English Bulldog at our house for 3 days while we were on vacation. Veronica is SO good with our dog Samantha! Samantha absolutely loves Veronica. She has dog sat for us several times since. She was always on time and made sure to do everything by our specifications. I would highly recommend Veronica to pet sit for anyone looking for a caring attentive pet sitter.
Kelly took my horse, Roy, through the fundamentals and that set the stage for everything else I do with him. Every trainer who has seen Roy says he is wonderfully trained. I am so thankful to Kelly for giving me such a wonderful partner.
As mention previously I have worked in or at least study most of the fields related to the pet industry. This gives me a unique outlook on the overall care your pet should receive.

We offer reining, cow horse, problems with your horse, training, and lessons. I charge $700.00 per month for training, and it includes board and 2 lessons per week, while the horse is in training. Have a 60-day minimum on training in general just to give you and your horse a fair chance to learn. Some need more, and some may need less.
