Lori was great; she definitely helped me out of a bind. She went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable leaving our dog for the first time. She stopped by the day prior so we could meet her and answer any specifics about the dogs care and routine. Would definitely recommend and use Lori's services again.

Susan took care of our two 70 pound girls for 7 days. She came out to meet and get to know the girls ahead of time and they hit it off great.... Susan really does care for the pets...not just a job. Everything went great...girls were happy and healthy as were we. Cost of her services was very readonable. We will continue to use Susan anytime we need pet services.

My main concern was finding a Pet Nanny that I trust with my pet and my home. That concern was solved when I hired Liz. She is very professional with a great caring vibe. She came over to meet Mia (my cat) and Mia came out of the room to meet her and play with her. It was my first time hiring a Pet Nanny and i was happy that I choose her. Will definitely hire her again. Thanks Liz!

I’ve used Kara’s services multiple times now for dog walking and boarding. Her love for animals is obvious. Kara was very reassuring to me when I was nervous to leave her while I went away during the weekend. She sent me updates and photos and kept my four legged baby happy. I would definitely recommend Kara to anyone who needs pet care!

Madi did a great job of watching our home and especially taking care of our dog. You can tell she has a great love for dogs and is very comfortable with them. Our dog does not warm up easily to many people, but he took to Madi right away. He even slept in the bed with her at night! He was calm and happy when we arrived home from our trip. Would definitely use Madi again and recommend her to others.

Kelly has been taking care of my girls for a few months now and I have to say she is the best sitter we have ever had. She spends a lot of time with the girls when she stops by and they are usually pooped from all the exercise and attention she gives them. I would recommend her to anyone looking for pet services. She's e best

Jessica took very good care of my cats and brought in my mail and took out my garbage. She sent me a picture while I was out of town to show how she was bonding with one of my cats. It was great to be able to enjoy my time over the holidays with my family knowing that my cats were in good hands. I would recommend Jessica if you need a good, reliable and friendly pet sitter.

I bring my dog to Shellie's Grooming & Supply. They are the best grooming facility that I have ever gone to. They treat my dog just the way I do and he comes back to me happier then ever. If you love your dog, and want the perfect cut, you need to bring him or her to Shellie's. I would never go anywhere else!!

      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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
