Rheana did an amazing job cleaning my apartment! She was accommodating with scheduling, arrived on time, and was extremely thorough in her work. I have 2 very fluffy pets and she left the place sparkling. She also did an interior window cleaning and my windows are so clear right now I'm stunned. I would highly recommend her!

Patricia took care of our house in Massachusetts for many years (+5). We not only got to know her and the quality work she performs, but we also got to know her family. Patricia is extremely reliable and flexible when necessary. She was always willing to change our cleaning schedule if we had guests arriving or planned functions. The house always looked and smelled great after each of Patricia's visits. If we needed special attention paid to a certain area it was taken care of. When Patricia notified us she was moving out of the area we were sad to see her go, but excited for her and her family's new prospects. Patricia recommended a replacement service provider to take her place who we were familiar with and who has continued to do a great job since Patricia's departure. Patricia will do a superb job for you.

Joan has been wonderful to deal with and takes great care of my two dogs! She is very accommodating with scheduling, i.e. you can text her in the morning if you determine that you do not need a walk for the day. She also leaves detailed notes after their daily walks so I know when they had gone out and what they had done. It is so nice to know that my dogs are taken care of by someone who really cares for them ...the dogs look forward to their daily walks with Joan! If you work with Joan and the Reckless Adventures team you will be happy you did :)

MacKenzie did a wonderful job. Not only did she care for our cats, but she left everything neat and clean and brought in our mail and packages. She also gave me text updates on how the cats were doing. I’ll definitely be using MacKenzie for all our pet sitting needs.

I recently hired Leash when my regular dogwalker went on vacation. We met at my house, took a walk together with my dogs, basically became acquainted. I decided to hire Leash that day. They were prepared with the administrative stuff - just basic paperwork and forms to set up my online account, which was all very quick and easy. They took care of my babies for me for two weeks, walking them midday while I was at work. And on unexpected longer days at the office, I would simply text Leash to ask if they could do an additional walk in the early evening - they're schedule allowed them to accomodate. Leash has been great. They are sensitive to my dogs' needs, are very kind to them, and very respectful of my home and neighborhood. They even videotape their walks, texting me a link immediately following each walk - pretty awesome! And payment online is also very quick and easy. I will continue to be a client. I highly recommend Leash Dog Care!

    I hired Wildflower Pet Care to walk my dog a couple times a week when I am at work. My dog has anxiety issues and can be difficult around new people. But it didn’t take long before she warmed up to both Jade and Lisa and is happily going on walks and adventures with them. They update me after each walk with photos and it looks like my dog is smiling in all of them! They are responsive to any of my questions and always let me know the details of the time the spend with my dog. I would definitely recommend this business and I know when my dog is in their care she is both in good hands and having fun!

    Tracey did a fantastic job taking care of our two cats while we were gone for approximately 10 days. These cats are very near and dear to my wife and I, so we wanted to make sure and choose the right person to take care of them, and Tracey fit the bill. Highly recommended for cat owners!

    I was lucky to have Allyson's help with my older dog. She was understanding, trustworthy, and was a great comfort to me knowing that my golden retriever was with a dog lover. Allyson was great. Anyone would be fortunate to find such a person if you need help with your pet.

    I have known Susan Devine for the past 13 years. We worked together for the Brigham and Woman’s Hospital where she was a very dedicated employee. Over the years we became very good friends and a part of our family. Susan’s love of animals was always present. When she rescued her dog, Roxie, 12 years ago, Susan’s devotion for her was very apparent. She is one of the most loving pet owners I have ever known. Susan has taken care of my 2 golden retrievers countless times, along with our fish and hermit crabs. My dogs think of Susan as part of our family. She is beyond reliable and trustworthy. If it wasn’t for Susan, my family and I would not have been able to go on vacation for years. One of my dogs is aggressive, with other dogs, Susan would go out of her way to be able for him to still get the walks he needs while taking care of the other pets.

    Laurie and the Just Paws team are truly wonderful. We've used Just Paws for dog walking, cat feeding, and even an overnight stay. Laurie is meticulous in getting to know you, your pets, and your needs (and even visited our house, ensuring that every detail was understood in advance). Small things -- the notes the team leaves behind after their visits -- provide peace of mind and make it clear they really care for your pets. The introduction of the online booking service makes it incredibly easy to ensure that dates are booked. I can't say enough positive... it's not always easy to entrust the care of your pets to others, but Laurie makes it so.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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 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 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.

    How much does it cost to groom a dog?

    Dog grooming costs depend on the service your pet requires. Nationally, the average price for dog grooming ranges from $40 to $100, varying by location. Not surprisingly, dog grooming on New York’s Upper East Side costs nearly double what it costs in a small town in Montana. Dog groomers typically handle every aspect of your dog’s beauty and hygiene, from tooth brushing to hairstyling. One potential way to save is to have your dog groomed at your doggy daycare — sometimes they offer discounts on dog grooming prices for clients. Here are some examples of average dog grooming costs in the San Francisco Bay Area. Please note these prices would include transportation fees for picking up and dropping off your dog to your home:

    • Nails: $30 a la carte or $20 when bundled with another service
    • Toothbrushing: $30 a la carte or $20 when bundled with another service
    • Tooth scraping (removal of plaque from teeth to prevent infection), with anesthesia: $600
    • Tooth scraping, without anesthesia: $400.
    • Wash and dry: $60
    • Ears: $30 a la carte or $20 when bundled with another service
    • Grooming package: $130 — includes wash, nails, teeth, ears, gland expression and haircut
