I could not believe the expertise and professionalism shown towards my pet as well as towards me. There was some training I also needed. My pet is now relaxed, and obedient when we go for our walks without hardly any prompting from me and it has only been a few days since training. I called him a dog whisperer because I could not believe the change I saw in my pooch. I highly recommend any one who needs assistance in training their pooch how to obey commands and be an absolute joy to be with to use this dog training service. You won't regret it! I know I won't!

This is an absolutely fantastic company. I was super nervous about leaving my puppy to be walked by a stranger but I have been so incredibly pleased with Waggy walkys. I've had two different walkers and both have been so trustworthy, kind, and reliable. I don't ever worry about my baby I know she's well taken care of and loved when I'm not home. On top of that their customer service is great. So so glad that I decided to do this!!! They are awesome here!

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.

I enjoy training with these guys and gals. They always have answered the "hard" questions whenever they eventually do come up. Nick has mastered the nuance of dog obidience training and doesn't mind sharing his knowlege with his students and being available for questions by text, email, or cellphone at all hours of the night and day. Nick's motto is "contact me anytime, day or night, rather than train incorrectly for 7 days". I highly recommend the "package deals" being offered rather than purchasing single lessons saving $50 right off the bat on four lessons.

Nikki took care of my 2 senior dogs for a week, coming to my home 4 times a day, often staying a long while. She followed every item regarding their food, medicine, and care PERFECTLY. Her attention to detail and LOVE of dogs is OUTSTANDING. She is a highly trained vet tech as well, which put my mind at ease regarding any situation that could have arisen. I highly recommend Zorger's Pet Care.

We had a great experience with Miller Pet Grooming. Great service our two Malteses looked beautiful. Hattie got to our house early which I thought was great. She was very caring and patient with Britney that is 16 years old and blind and with Liza that is 14. Hattie is very professional and knowledgeable I will definitely hire her 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.

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)

Years ago I took my beagle Petey to Haywood for training. Haywood taught me a lot about what Petey was communicating to me. Things that I didn't think Petey understood when it turned out he was just choosing to ignore me! Haywood helped me strengthen my bond with Petey through positive reinforcement and trust. In training me I learned how to commmunicate with most dogs, and being a pet sitter that's been invaluable. Honestly though, spending that time with Petey was priceless! And Haywood made it fun, and educational as well!

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.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
