My deepest thanks and gratitude to Bluetails pet care and animal rescue! They took such great care of Mookie while we were away! Our boy is a nervous pervis and needed a home style environment rather than what I think of when I think of traditional boarding, and that's exactly what he got, a loving home and lots of affection! Courtney who runs it is very professional, but in such a warm and caring way, and she has a very high dog IQ. Courtney went above and beyond to keep in touch during Mook's stay and update us with pics and videos, and you could see as days went on Mook was totally relaxed and being his usual lovebug self, so we know he was getting constant attention. We will DEFINITELY be turning to her again when we need to go away. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND Bluetails to everyone who may need to board their four legged baby!

We've known Cambre since she was a vet tech at Audubon Veterinary Hospital and she provided immaculate service & care to not only our felines, but every animal that crossed her path. She became our pet sitter immediately upon opening this business. How awesome that our bebe`s do not have to go through what used to be a traumatic boarding experience, but get personal visits, playtime & provision from such a loving and lovely person! She cared for Billie Holiday & Francis Poulenc until their passing (at 11 & 12 years of age). She cared for Bootsie until her recent passing at age 18+. We have continued joy and peace of mind that she cares for our newest additions to the family, Josephine & Theodora Louise! We are smitten with them and we're all smitten with Cambre! With much appreciation & gratitude - Love you!

    Darla is a fantastic pet-sitter! I had the pleasure of doing a long distance relationship for more than a year, so I had to use Darla's services pretty regularly whenever I skipped town. I would have felt terrible leaving my dog Tubby in a boarding environment so often, but at Darla's I know shes in good hands. She gets regular walks, gets to play with other dogs, and I swear Darla and her partner are the local version of the dog whisperer, they are so good at keeping her calm and behaved. I had to leave her once after she got an abscess in her paw from stepping on a thorn, but I never had to worry about her getting her medication on time or being ignored if she was in pain; they care for her like she's their own. Tubby gets so excited when we pull up to the house now; she loves staying there, it's like her vacation too. They are completely flexible with my schedule too, which was fantastic with flights getting in at odd hours sometimes.

        Nothing could have been better than Rachel. I've had her watch my family's animals on multiple occasions. She is very professional, and goes to extra mile. She will take your considerations in need. She is experienced in giving medication to animals, walking them, feeding them, and loving them. 5 stars!

        We pick up and deliver in the Marrero area. We provide blueberry facials, hot oil treatments, creative dye, grooming, bathing, and small-dog boarding in suites.


        I will be happy to walk, feed and water your animals. I can also bring them to a dog park if allowed. I will be glad to play with them for a period of time. I love animals and have had dogs all my life.


        I treat animals as if they were mine. I believe that animals are just like people. They deserve the love and care just like our children.


        I love to care for animals when owners are out. They, too, still need the care and attention. I love to assist on farms.


        I am an animal enthusiast and appreciator from Massachusetts, now living in New Orleans, LA. My love for animals began from a young age with family pets and only blossomed from there with my connection to all animals I've met. I am a dedicated member of the ASPCA and have developed the knowledge and awareness necessary to provide care and comfort to dogs, cats and other animals. Having volunteered at a variety of dog and cat shelters, I know the fun (walking, socializing, and feeding) and understand the not so fun but necessary aspects of caring for animals (cleaning). Let me help exercise, feed, clean after and be present with the animals you know and love when your busy schedule is at its peak.

        I babysit pets and offer boarding. I can take care of dogs for vacationers while they are away and will keep them at my residence with my little dog which is part chihuahua male and loves playing. He also loves walking at the park and running around. He could have a friend to play with. He just turned 3 years old.


        I love working with all animals and have worked with 100 dogs in the past. I am SPCA certified in animal CPR and first aid and have worked beside many animal trainers.

        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.

        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.

        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.
