I've done quite a bit of rescue work over the years and anytime I've gotten a dog with behavioral issues I call Jodi. She has taken some very reactive dogs and calmed them down to make wonderful household family members. I also always send my personal pets to her for training. She takes the time to go over everything she's done with the training and shows you what you need to do to keep up with it. Jodi has trained both of my chihuahuas, husky, and great dane with amazing results and anytime I have a question or issue she's right there to help me find the answer. Size, breed, and bad attitude means nothing to her, all she sees is a good friend that's overwhelmed and needs help. I will always take my babies to her for training and grooming. (hint hint hurry up and get that reestablished

The convenience of having someone come to your home is fantastic, but seeing my boy looking so happy and well groomed was the priceless. My older pup can be a grump, especially with groomers, but Evan was so professional and had no problems with him at all. I will be recommending JZ Mobile Pet Styling to all my dog owning friends.

I'm in the Louisville area and local small business started to help people around the city to help them and their pets to feel like that they are meant for one another and to make sure that they stay together and not left out on the street. My price is based on the job and the pet that is and how long it take to take care of the problem. It is better if the animals are young, but if you have an old dog that need to learn a new trick then. I will be happy to see what happen with the animal and like the old saying can't teach an old dog a new trick, but I believe that that they can with time. So please, if you like what you hear then get at me and will go from there. Have a great day.


My first priority is the pet(s)that I am caring for while their owners are out of town. I am compassionate, caring, reliable and responsible. I love animals and enjoy spending time with them.


I love all dogs and cats. Since I can't adopt all of them, pet sitting is the next way of taking care of them.


I am an experienced and loving pet/house sitter in your home. I'll stay with your dogs through the night. I will visit and check mail, water plants, turn on lights, etc.

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.
