I thought Jose did an excellent job explaining the differences in dog and human psychology and behavioral patterns. He has a genuine quality to him as well, that made me feel like he wanted to help. I'd highly recommend him to people with little experience with dogs. In our case, I think the session was most beneficial to the family we now live with, as my wife and I have already done so much of our own research that much of what we heard in the session, we had heard before. Still, it was beneficial to reinforce some of these things and again, the family benefitted a great deal. It's only been a couple days, but I believe we are seeing some improvements in our dog, thanks to the session. Nick

Wanda is awesome as a petsitter / walker. Our dog is just as our child, and family member. Wanda is an animal lover and treats them as such. She is professional, trust worthy and can be counted on to take care of our pet as her own.

They were very prompt in keeping their appointment. They were very friendly and interested in my dog. They gave Roxy the works! Shampoo, conditioner, blow drying, nails trimmed, Anal glands taken care of, ears cleaned and I paid for an additional teeth brushing. Roxy came back to me so shiny and she smells amazing! A great job with attention to detail. I would highly recommend Mobile Pet Grooming!

I started working with Mona even before we got our dog, Belle. Mona helped us choose the right puppy for us to get us started on the right foot, and she helped us make a "puppy plan" so that things weren't so overwhelming for us as first-time dog owners. She even went shopping with us at the pet supply store to help us choose what would help us and what we wouldn't really need. And that was before the training even started! It just goes to show how dedicated Mona is to making sure that her clients and their dogs have positive, happy relationships - she thinks of every detail and helps with everything, even if it's above and beyond her job description. Her training was clear, at a good pace, and not too complicated. Belle really responded to her, and she explained everything to us in a way that made us understand Belle better, too. We've left Belle with Mona overnight and we were always confident that Belle was not only totally safe, but also having a fun time even if we couldn't be there with her. I'm only sorry we don't live in the same city as Mona anymore! But we all, including Belle, look forward to visiting her soon, and we recommend her services to all other animal lovers.

I adopted a one year old Boston Terrier mix who is extremely energetic. I forgot what it was like to have a young dog. Needless to say, I hired Kelly and have been so impressed. First of all, she is extremely professional, enjoyable, no nonsense and always punctual. She has a common sense approach to dog training and the results have been great. I would recommend her to anyone, as she has only proven to provide more than I ever thought I could get.

Sheryl has been walking my precious Lab for a little more than a year. She is a very loving, kind and reliable person, besides being a major animal lover. It took me several interviews to find the right person to trust but after meeting Sheryl, I knew she was perfect for the job and Paisley took to her right away.

I hired Mitch to care for my 3 Lhaso Apsos for 2 weeks during a recent trip to Norway and I couldn't be happier. He was recommended by an old sitter and I thought him to be very professional, conscientious and one who was very responsible to the needs of my girls. My neighbors told me that he was there several times a day as I had asked and that he was 'protective' of them as they met him during walks with their own dogs. He is an animal lover, a volunteer, a father and a real nice person. He is also bonded and licensed. Several of my neighbors asked me for his card when I returned and I gladly gave it to them. I would hire Mitch again, definitely!

Let me start by saying my fur-babies are my EVERYTHING. I do just as much research when choosing a vet, groomer, pet sitter, etc for my pets, as I would do for myself when choosing a doctor, hair stylist, etc. Not only am I putting my pets care in the hands of someone else, I am also trusting them with my house keys and having access to my belongings. I did my research and decided upon Pink Paws Pet Care and Ms. Mae. When Mae arrived during our initial meeting, I immediately felt comfortable with her and knew she would provide excellent care for my babies. Mae was extremely professional, asked tons of questions regarding my pets eating habits, play habits, etc. Asked who their veterinarian was, asked if there were any medications to be given etc. Needless to say, at the end of our initial meeting, I was more than impressed by Mae’s professionalism and her thoroughness in regards to the questions she asked. I was more than comfortable with leaving my babies in her care. While I was on vacation and Mae was caring for my babies, I received a very thorough email every day detailing the events that occurred during her visit, along with pictures of my babies. I have three kitties with very different personalities and behaviors. The things Mae would write to me in her report could only be written by someone who played and interacted with my babies. At the end of the day, I was able to relax and enjoy my vacation knowing my babies were receiving excellent care and were well taken care of by Mae. I highly recommend Pink Paw Pet Care and Mae and will certainly be calling Mae again. Not only did Mae provide great care to my pets, she also took care of my trash on pick up day, put my dirty dishes in the dishwasher, dusted my tv stand, and swept around my kitties litter box and feeding area. I cannot express in words how impressed I was with the service Mae provided. She went above and beyond and exceeded my expectations. It was clear to me that Mae truly enjoys and loves what she does.

Frequent photos and videos are communicated so I can stay involved in my dog’s daily activities. I trust this service to care for my dog and rely heavily on the flexibility this service provides. The adventures available to my dog through this service are endless.

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.
