Did great here! They walk my husky every day now and he hasn't had an accident since we started. They are very specific on the times they come which helps keep him on track! Thanks so much for helping me exercise and potty train my puppy.

We used Sitting Comfortably in-home for the first time for a 5-day family trip in May 2014, and we were MORE than pleased with the preparations, the onsite interview and familiarization, and the actual sitting effort itself during the 5 days we were gone. We are very particular about my house and everything about our pet - a 20-pound Maine Coon cat. As you can imagine, having someone stay overnight in your private home can be unsettling, but the experience with Sitting Comfortably was EXCELLENT! We couldn't have been more pleased with the results, and with both Summor, the owner, and Jessica, the sitter. Jessica exceeded our every need and kept us up-to-date via text messaging and a daily report card from our cat about the experience. I would never hesitate to use Sitting Comfortably again, and i HIGHLY recommend them for your in-house pet-sitting needs.

I knew I would love Terry before I even met her, and I was so right! She truly understands cats and their needs and did such a beautiful job for my fluffy, matted kitty. His haunches were covered in horrible mats and I knew he wouldn't enjoy the process of having them shaved off, but Terry approached the job with so much patience and skill that it was over before we both knew it! Terry educated me and left me with some tips and tricks to use for grooming him in the future as he ages. I couldn't have asked for better. I will absolutely choose Terry first the next time I need cat grooming services.

We reached out to Angela to help us with our reactive lab mix. After our sessions with her we were amazed at how much we learned and we had a much better behaved dog. We strongly recommed her to anyone who is looking for obedience training or even one of her pet sitting services.

My care and work for animals is not only a job it is my passion and my life. I provide the one on one care that people want when they cant be with there animal family members. I not only care for them but spend time with them as well. If they need special attention I am more then willing and have much experience in giving that care. If your animal requires medication or certain one on one time I can do that and leave you with no worries that it will be done right and with the utmost of care. Not many animal care places can or will do that. I basically take them under my "family" wing till you get home. I am also trustworthy to not only take care of your animals but also to be in your home. I can provide refrences and am willing to go the extra mile to make sure you have no worries before you head out.


I love animals, and I believe when an owner is away for business or pleasure travel, our pets thrive on staying in their own home environment. I use the whisper method with horses, dogs and even with cats who are a bit feisty. There is nothing better for the inside of a person than the outside of a furry friend!


As a pet sitter, your sole responsibility is to take care of the client's pets while he/she is traveling. This includes walking the dogs, feeding the animals, cleaning up any messes you (or they) have made (counter and spoons cleaned), administering medication (if needed), scooping the litter box daily, picking up the mail and paper, and doing any light watering for indoor/outdoor plants.


I take care of animals as needed while you're away/when you're there or just a onetime deal. I can also do house-sitting and light housecleaning.

I provide a warm and caring environment where your pet/pets can spend the day being pampered. They can socialize in a nontoxic environment, with filtered water, natural foods, snacks and more. When the pets are in the house, it is very peaceful here and a schedule is maintained as pets love a routine. The most important focus is that I only take 3-5 dogs at a time, so my service has the personal touch, a home away from home. Serving the Greater Kansas City and local areas.

I am a huge animal lover, mainly dogs. I am willing to travel, but right now, my transportation is limited. Contact me to ask about traveling because being limited, it could be changed. I will watch your pet, feed them and do whatever you would like me to do to take care of them.


I am here to help make your pet understand its enivorment and what is going on around them. I also teach them what is acceptable behavior and what is not. I can train your dog so that you are the one in control. I also do pet sitting, dog walking and bathing and grooming. I have 15 years of working hands-on day and night training, preparing puppies and adults to enter the dog show ring and win. Socializing a pet especially when they are growing is a must, so I can help you do that if you have a new, four-legged friend.


I am seriously dedicated, follow thru, and punctual.


I have a love for animals. I work full-time for the government for 23 years now and have ethics, morals, and integrity. I would love to provide your love and nurture for your "pooch" during times that you are unable to do so. I will let animals outside, take for walks, and provide fresh food and water before and after my full-time employment.

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.
