I'm always concerned about how well is Dona treated so I am very grateful I found Maria and Conga's Pet Grooming, Dona's schnauzer hair cut is always on point, her beard and paws are whiter that I could ever achive bathing her by my own and her ears are cleaner than before saving me time an money in vets.

Cliff has the perfect demeanor for being a dog training specialist....both calm and assertive (with pets and their owners haha). When we first met Cliff in 2009 we had a newly adopted 8 week old puppy with a lot of negative puppy behaviors. So many skittish, destructive and biting behaviors though that we were advised by two other trainers and a couple of family members to "give her back" to the pound and that she would be a potentially dangerous family dog to keep around and "unpredictable" around young children. Cliff provided puppy training to us over the course of several months and helped shape Maya into a more mellow young dog that year. After we had our son, Cliff returned to help make sure the transition went smoothly, that our dog Maya would know her place and be safe around the new baby, including practicing walking Maya next to the stroller and wagon and anything that could potentially make Maya react negatively. Cliff was fantastic and Maya has been an awesome family dog these past 7 years. Great on long car trips, mellow and tolerant of kid grabs on ears and tails, never growls or snaps when our 6 year old son or other small children would jump around her or touch her treats or food. We are so grateful that Cliff saved her from the pound round 1. Then after moving away to the D.C. area, and visiting our parents back in South Florida, Maya had a negative experience at a dog boarding facility in Palm Beach Gardens. She had been attacked (unprovoked at her last stay at a Dog boarding facility in Virginia requiring stitches, etc.) and we didn't realize that she had probably also been traumatized by this event and her next experience at a dog daycare might not be as enjoyable for her. She got into an altercation with another dog and one of the daycare handlers and was kicked out of the facility never allowed to return. I was told by the trainer there that it is "sad when a good dog goes bad". I was devastated!! Cliff came to the rescue again. He offered to immediately pick her up from me and board her for a few days while I visited with my parents and to train her while boarding and see if he could correct some of those nervous and potentially aggressive behaviors. He helped her work through some of those issues and took her into the community interacting with other people and dogs and she returned to us quite happy and like herself again. We are so grateful to have found Cliff 7 1/2 years ago and because of him we have the best, most gentle family dog we could imagine. SO glad he saw the potential in Maya and helped us through those negative behaviors!!

Miss Wanda is perfect, she can take on your most delicate pet sitting needs! we have 4 huge dogs that have severe anxiety , one being a rescue puppy with no training ground. Miss Wanda took care of them for 7 days , coming to our house several tim3 s a day to let them out feed them, etc. we came back from vacay with the dogs super happy and the house looking emaculate! we have had other pet sitters in the past and none of them have been as reliable as Miss Wanda. we can finally go out of town knowing our furry babies are in great hands. thank u so much!

Maryelis Lovely Pets is hands down the best pet grooming store i've been to. They took really good care of my Miniature Pinscher, he came out looking so handsome with his bandana and smelling great. Whenever i'm not able to go to the store, luckily, they have a mobile grooming service and i can just call them and they come whenever i'm available. I definitely recommend them, if there were more stars i'd rate them more.

Erinn is a natural with animals. She eloped me tremendously with my puppy a fewontjs ago. He stayed the week with her and she tonight him the ropes. He came home like a new dog, calmer and obedient. Now I just have to get her to train my four kids! THANK You ERINN! You were a life saver!

TOP NOTCH!!! Was a little skeptical as this was the first time we were using a pet sitter that came to our house, but was I mistaken. Usually when we came home from a vacation we always had to plan it around picking up Cali (our dog) so she didn't have to spend another night at the kennel. She was usually a little depressed & tired from the stress. This time we came home and she was exactly as we left her...happy!!!! This truly was the best decision we ever made. I will be recommending Paws of Love to all my family & friends. They took such great care of Cali while we were way, that planning future vacations will be a lot less stressful for her & our family. Thanks again Paws of Love!!!!

Joyce is ABSOLUTELY amazing! So kind, detailed, caring... she went above and beyond all of my expectations and was delightful with my family. She taught our very young puppy so many tricks in just 2 weeks. She spent time with me alone and with my child to make sure we all know how to act with our puppy. She even got our dog extra food and we left with her training clicker and other goodies. I will absolutely use her to train our dog further and for boarding in the future. I highly recommend her!

In describing Beths dog walking and pet sitting service, the only word I can use to describe it is spectacular. She has been taking care of my 2 shy and skittish schnauzers for over a year and they absolutely adore her. Prior to finding Mary Puppins Pet Nanny Service I had gone through several dog walkers with no success, as my dogs do not take to most people. As soon as they met Beth they fell in love. She has treated them as her own, with tremendous love and care and has gone way above dog walking and dog sitting. She has been a godsend and i would recommend her highly as do my dogs.

I was very happy with our pet dog's first stay with Mel - she texted me regularly with updates and I felt reassured that he was being looked after well. I have already booked him in to stay with her again.

I had never left my pet with anyone other than family before and was very nervous. Carol was great, she reassured me all would be fine. I called several times to check on my baby and she let me know that all was well. She even sent me a pic! She has a great dog herself that got along great with mine. I will definitely use her again and would recommend her to others without question.

My dogs love Tylie, you can tell she really cares about your pets. My older dog has visited TLC for some time now - for grooming, daycare and boarding. We’ve now taken our new puppy there for almost 3 weeks and we’re very happy with the progress she’s made so far! Tylie is not only training her during daycare, but she helps give us guidance on how to train her at home too!

About

I am an independent contractor who has cared for hundreds of dogs and cats. My services include overnight stays and stop-in visits to provide walking, feeding and whatever else your pet may need.

About

I have been in the pet business since I was 16 years old. I am now 46 years old! You name it; I can do it! I have been a wild rescuer as well. My place is pet suitable with clean wooden floors, plush beds (pets usually end up sleeping with me) bathing and grooming material, and a walk to Petco everyday for entertainment and a suitable toy or bone at the end of their stay. I also do training outside by a beautiful lake and lots of green grass. Your pets will be loved as I love my own. I was also a reptile specialist and will take in these special creatures. I will not take in two different owner pets of dogs or cats at the same time for the reason of risks of any behavioral problems or colds. All pet owners who leave pets with me must show updated shots and veterinarian's number.

About

I sit with your cats, all day and night. I feed, play and give the pet all the attention it needs. I love cats.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does boarding a horse cost?

Finding the right horse boarding location is a big step in a horse owner’s life. This will be the place your horse will live and where you will visit multiple times per week or even daily. The cost of horse boarding will depend on the level of service you desire, the location of the stables, and the luxury level of the property. Here are some examples of average horse boarding costs:

  • Overnight stabling: $30 per horse per night.
  • Partial boarding (owner feeds and mucks): $220 per horse per month, with a three-month commitment.
    • Administration of oral medication: $10 per dose.
    • Bandaging: $20 per event, plus cost of materials.
    • Trailering to vet if owner is unable: $25, plus $25 per hour to wait with horse.
  • Basic full boarding: $325-$350 per month per horse. Includes twice daily hay and daily stall cleaning.
    • Horse training: $20 per session.
    • Pasture turn out: $20 per session.
    • Blanketing: $1 per day/$30 per month.
    • Vet or farrier hold: $20. This means haltering the horse and standing with it as it receives treatment or shoeing.

Where can I board my horse?

You can board your horse at any barn or stable that provides horse boarding services. To find horse boarding near you, read reviews of area locations and speak with equestrian friends to find one with a solid reputation. Ideally, the location will be within a reasonable drive from your home or office. This is especially important if you are paying for partial boarding services and are responsible for feeding your horse and cleaning its stall each day. You may choose your boarding barn or stables based on the services they provide. Some offer more extensive amenities — at an added price — that reduce the amount of work you need to do to keep your horse comfortable. Consider whether you want training, blanketing, exercise and other perks in addition to standard offerings like hay and stable mucking. Your stable may have temperament requirements and proof that your horse has the proper vaccinations required by your state. This protects both your horse and the other horses in the stable. Many states require that locations offering horse boarding services have stable licenses that are renewed each year. Always be sure to enter into a clearly written boarding contract that will cover your horse and belongings in case of accident, and remember our tips for smart hiring.

What is horse boarding?

Horse boarding is like rental housing for your horse. Horse boarding is helpful for people who don’t have the space or the resources to install and maintain a stable on their property. A horse can be housed in a barn with other horses and receive the care they need. Owners can visit their horse for riding, grooming, training, etc. Horse boarding services may vary based on the company and the price. Some horse boarders may offer short-term boarding of 24 hours to several nights for people passing through an area, while most offer boarding by the month for horses whose owners live in the area. There is partial- and full-service boarding, which indicates how much of the work of feeding the horse and cleaning the stall is the responsibility of the owner rather than the boarding barn. For an added fee, horse boarding can also include grooming services, riding and training, medication administration, and more.

To find the right boarding fit for you and your horse, make a list of your top priorities. These might include immediate access to riding trails, round-the-clock supervision, or a nearby or affiliated veterinarian. Always visit the site to learn exactly where your horse will be kept and whether the barn and grounds are in good condition. Read reviews, and always practice smart hiring. It’s also critical to sign the proper legal documents that protect both you and your horse, such as boarding agreements. Above all, make sure it seems like a place your horse will be comfortable between your visits.
