Ryan did an amazing job with our dog. His first visit when leaving the dog bite his leg and a small bite and tore his pants. The last visit her tail was wagging. She's a different dog but you must follow his advice and be consistent with the training. Thank you Ryan for all you did for Luna.

Canine Dominion is a great company to work with. The owner came to my home and picked up both of my dogs and dropped them off once boarding was completed, which was a awesome feature. During there stay with Canine Dominion, my dogs were trained on basic commands and were well taken care of. The owner even sent pictures of my dogs to keep me updated during there boarding, which made me feel even more comfortable. It was truly a pleasure working with the owner Jauvaurie and I will definitely board my dogs with him again.

Jody was (and still is) a tremendous help! She came prepared with lots of great ideas and information, all of which were extremely helpful. I especially appreciated her advice on making mealtime a fun and educational experience. He has really taken to the games/toys to get his food, rather than gulping it down in 5 seconds. With her guidance, we have registered our puppy for his first kindergarten class. He is off to a great start! We are taking advantage of Jody's new service, in-home puppy sitting. We had hoped to take a vacation this summer, but with a new puppy it did not seem possible. Jody has a great service in which she will stay with your little one, in your home, and continue to work with them. No need for boarding! I am happy to recommend Jody to anyone looking for a wonderful trainer, who obviously loves puppies. I have already given her information to two friends with new puppies.

Peggi boarded my shih-tzu dog for 9 days. I felt like my dog was “at home” and had the ability to move around and play with other dogs and her toys throughout the day. Peggi sent morning and evening greetings and pictures daily. We were assured that our baby was doing well and was enjoying her stay. I felt like my dog was on vacation while we were on vacation. 😆 She even shared a video which was a pleasant surprise. I highly recommend Peggi without hesitation to anyone who needs boarding services.

We had to go out of town and were stressing over leaving our babies. We have 2 dogs 3 cats and a water dragon. Nikki went above and beyond of what we asked her to do for a babies, we were very impressed with her professionalism. She walked our dogs daily, fed them bathed them and trimmed their nails. Our 3 kitties got a lot of love nails trimmed and their boxes cleaned. The water dragon got fed and let out to roam every day, plus his cage cleaned. I would highly recommend Nikki to everyone I know. If you are looking for a professional, reliable, caring Animal lover, Nikki is your GAL.. Your pets needs will always come first!!

The folks at Pet Peeps were incredible. Gus was on time, well organized, and very good with our cats. He really went above and beyond when we didn't have a spare set of keys and he offered to make a copy for us. All in all, clear animal lovers and also a very well run business. We are so appreciative for their help!

My 2 dogs love spending time with Sharon, her friendly and accepting dogs, and exploring the large fenced property. Sharon is very flexible with drop off/pickup times to fit my schedule. When I pick them up, my dogs are happy and relaxed, not frantic to leave as they are after a stay in a commercial kennel. Sharon and her dogs give mine a a vibrant and caring environment, and give me great peace of mind when I must be away. My dogs will be very happy to visit again next weekend and for our long family vacation a few weeks from now.

Mr. Haywood and his dog trainers could not be any nicer. Our Wheaten Terrier is much smarter then we thought she was and is listening to us better then we could have imagined. We have also continued to use their services for boarding when we are away. We have been super happy with the results and on going work.

Kim is very professional and sweet, she took care of my kitty cat and chinchilla while we were away for our wedding. I have an incredibly needy cat but he wasn't super desperate when we got home so I could tell he had enough attention. We then used Kim to check on the house and chinchilla while away for our honeymoon. I usually worry a lot about my animals and can get a bit anxious but she was very understanding and I felt relieved to have her with them. I left my cat at a friend's house for our honeymoon but I think if we go on another long trip I will just ask Kim to come back. She has even brought in packages for us and made an extra stop to turn off my ridiculous house alarm so the beeping noise wouldn't bother my chinchilla. Highly recommend. (Oh and she is one of the only pet sitters we have had who isn't scared of the chinchilla. I can tell she is a real animal lover)

Susan is the dog walker, trainer, running companion, and home away from home for our three year old Carolina dog Sandy. The American Kennel Club says Carolina dogs are the most hierarchical breed which means until you establish yourself as their alpha, they can be willful, exhibit dominance (i.e., they want to be at your face level so they jump up), and have almost boundless energy. We were told that Sandy would be as energetic at 13 years as she was at 13 months. We said, What have we gotten ourselves into? But Susan has turned Sandy into a perfect lady. First she taught her to sit in the care\ and not bother the driver. Sandy now loves her rides. Susan took Sandy on long runs. Sandy came home so tuckered out she only wanted to lie on her pillow and sleep. When Susan arrives for Sandy’s run, Sandy gets so excited she wants to jump up and kiss Susan’s face (remember dominance). Susan uses that as a teaching moment so that Sandy minds her manners and has to wait and sit before she gets to go on her run. Susan has four dogs of her own and when she boards Sandy for the weekend the dogs have a wonderful time together. Susan's dogs teach Sandy their good manners. In short, Susan has taken one of the most difficult breeds to train and turned her into almost the perfect pet, because once Sandy learned her manners all she wants to do is kiss and hug you. We love Sandy and she is a full member of our family and we cannot thank Susan enough for helping us train her. In short if you are looking for help with your dog from simple regular exercise, to boarding, to basic and then complex training, we cannot recommend anyone more highly than Susan Rubin for that service.

    Good Dog Pet Care is wonderful! We are experienced dog owners but our latest rescue turned out to be a "dominant" dog & we had no experience with that. Alex saved the day (& the dog)! His knowledge of animal behavior is superior & he taught us so much. His dog walking service is also superior. His employees all share his love of dogs, are prompt & reliant, & our dog always returns happy & tired! All I have to say is "Alex is coming" & she sits @ the front door waiting for him, without moving, until he gets here. It is very obvious how much Fiona loves Alex! We have used Alex's services for over a year now & couldn't be happier. Right now Alex & his dog Hank are staying @ our house for 2 weeks while we are on vacation. We are truly relaxed knowing that Alex is there & Fiona is happy & content. You will not regret using Alex!

    About

    I'm a dog walker and groomer. I've been working with dogs for 10 years. I communicate with dogs as if they were people.

    About

    I take a balanced approach to dog training. I believe all dogs are individuals. As a result I adapt my training to fit the dog. In order to be effective I truly believe you need to have an open mind and sometimes think outside the box. It's this mentality that makes me the best at what I do. Our boarding and doggie daycare is unique in that we are a home based facility. As a result we only take on a limited number of guests. This limited number of guests allow us to interact more with your pup. Giving your pup that human bonding time they crave.

    The owner of PuppyLovin, Julie, is one awesome dog trainer and a wonderful person. My wife and I have been taking our German Shepherd to her for training, boarding, and day care for about a year and a half now. She has really been a godsend when it comes to dog training. Without her training, assistance, and consultation, we would have had our hands full with our GSD. I highly recommend PuppyLovin for all three of the services stated above. Julie will cater her services to the needs of your dog and develope comprehensive plan for your pet.

    I've known about Journey for about 4 years now, and my experience with Journey has always been excellent. Laron (the founder of Journey) is a very determined, kind hearted young gentlemen who knows how to treat animals right, and I'm glad to have met someone who is as passionate as he. From grooming to feeding, I found Journey to be well tailored to the needs of my animals and the customizable time slots make vacations away from my pets a breeze. I was very glad I found Journey, and I would most certainly recommend them to anyone looking for a easy way to manage their pets, either due to vacation or a hectic lifestyle, or even if you're looking to give your pets a little treat! Journey (from my experience) has been completely reliable, an excellent service which I've come to rely on.

    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.

    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.

    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.
