I had one easy dog, but the other, well, he is obnoxious as they get. She had her hands full but still did an awesome job on him!

Everything about our experience was very good, from how quickly he responded to emails or phones calls to excellent customer service, even driving to our location to evaluate our needs with our puppy. Very professional and kind, Rob worked out an appropriate plan for training with Casper, who is an "emotional support dog". Casper is a loving, sweet girl who needed to work on her manners plus a little more crate training. Pricing was fair and competitive with other trainers. Rob was very helpful.

JD of Woofter's Top Dog is honest, straightforward, and one of the most professional dog trainers in the business. His experience is invaluable, and if you simply follow through with what he teaches your dog, you will both live happily ever after. The man is just fantastic with dogs. It's clear how much he enjoys working with them, and they clearly love working with him. He gets amazing results, and is nothing short of a miracle worker. I've seen fearful dogs, dogs labeled "aggressive", and just downright "naughty dogs" grow into fantastic Canine Citizens with JD as their trainer. Don't give up on your dog, take your dog to Woofter's Top Dog and prepare to be amazed.. I can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you for all of your help, JD!

After Hours Pet Salon & Spa is run by very caring & professional individuals! Drop off times are recommend but I stopped by there on a Saturday to visit this business for the 1st time! I had my Cocker Spaniel, Baxter, with me & luckily I got him in for the afternoon! Beth Smith was the groomer that I had talked to & she was very up front about the services that were required & cost! The prices were very reasonable! I could tell that she loved her job & was very caring, especially when I dropped my puppy off for his 1st grooming experience! Also her credentials are very well stated, especially on her business card that I received! Anyway bathing, ears cleaned, grooming, toe nails trimmed, amongst other things, were all included in the cost! There are other special services & cost that were explained but there were not necessary for my puppy on this trip! They notified me when he was finished & he seemed in pretty good spirits when I picked him up! Everything was done as discussed & he looked fantastic! I have definitely found my personal groomer for Baxter! I would recommend Beth to anyone looking for a personal groomer of their own! You will not be disappointed!

Cindy was professional and knowledgeable. She was always on time and the dogs were really excited to meet her and see her everyday that she came. When we need a pet sitter again, we will be calling Man's Second Best Friend.

      Blue Skies Pet Care

      New To Thumbtack

        About

        Born and raised in Newton, Blue Skies Pet Care's owner, Ashley Klein, has a small-town appreciation for personally committing to her work. She also realized early on that helping others is one of the best paths to happiness. She has combined these two ideas with one of her life's loves: animals. For years, Klein had been asked by friends and neighbors to help take care of pets. She sometimes simply volunteered. When a friend became a friend of a friend of a friend, she realized that there was a reason people trusted her with their companions. Her love of animals could be seen in every gesture. Blue Skies Pet Care was born. At that time, she had already started working toward a BA in Natural Sciences at Bethel College. Klein was able to combine all of her interests by beginning a pet services business. Loving animals is only one qualification for pet care, though, isn't it? Klein has never stopped with just loving animals. Having volunteered at Caring Hands Humane Society as a child, and now as an adult "matchmaker", her experience with animals is not simply personal. She has been through obedience classes and trained numerous dogs, including rescues during special seminars held through the local humane society. During college, Klein has studied animal behavior and nutrition, including canine and feline nutrition, canine behavior, and canine domestication. She also completed a veterinarian-taught First Aid/CPR class for cats and dogs in 2010.

        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.
