I cannot express how happy I am with the care and service provided by Claudia Ann and Berkshire Meadows. She went above and beyond each day, not only pottying my dogs, but ensuring they got enough exercise and water, training our puppy and providing them mid-day love. Her pricing was extremely fair and I felt the value was exceptional. She also was sure to follow up via text anytime she had a question or suggestion for our dogs, and always responded promptly to any of my questions. I am beyond pleased with my experience and would recommend her services to anyone looking for a reliable and loving caregiver for their dogs!

Hallie, helping her young teen daughter Lyra, did a great job of keeping us informed on the status of our two dogs and one cat. She sent us pictures via phone, took the dogs for walks, fed and cleaned up the messes they made. She clearly loves animals, and they love her!

Frances has stayed in our home and cared for our pets many times.  We have three dogs and cats as well as fish.  The longest time Frances cared for our pets was about fifteen days last winter.  The peace of mind we enjoy on our vacations knowing that our pets are being so lovingly cared for in their own home is invaluable.  Frances has a true love of animals and is able to relate to each one on an individual basis.  We have complete confidence in her judgment and reliability and most of all on her kindness towards our animals.  She has administered medication as well as their more basic requirements and we can enjoy our travels knowing they are being looked after by someone who truly cares for their welfare. We are happy to recommend Frances without qualification.  Please feel free to call us if you would like a verbal confirmation of this letter.

Thanks to Brandy at Stable Mates Best Behaved, our six year old Sheppard mix which we rescued is settling in to be a welcome part of our family. Brandy drove to our home, always on time, with great advice for us and "Buddy". She helped us understand how our "baby" thought and reacted to different stimuli. She worked with us to show us how to help our excitable 55lb baby be calm and how we can be the leader of the pack. Buddy is now going for long walks with me, ignoring more and more of the distractions of other animals ,squirrels and rabbits. Brandy's knowledge and professional attitude impressed my wife and I so much that we highly recommend her to all our friends.

Annette took great care of our dog Zell while we were on an extended vacation. She has a fenced in yard for play and even sent pictures to us to assure us Zell was happy and healthy. This was a much better option than a kennel for such a long stay. We'll be keeping in touch with Annette for upcoming trips!

Hi, there! I have had a variety of different animals all my life. I used to work for a few different pet stores and learned a lot from those jobs. I grow up with German shepherds since I was little. I have a Great Pyrenees that will be three years old in August and have had her since she was three months old. I trained and socialized her myself, and she's a very well-behaved dog. I have a cat and a lizard. I love all animals. Whatever you need, I can help. Price varies depending on the level of care and number of pets. Hope to hear from you soon.


I have such a passion for animals, and I have been around dogs my entire life. I can do anything, from walking to feeding and brushing!


I walk any animal that can be contained by leash. Dogs are the most popular and common, but I am not limited to just dogs.


I've loved animals, practically since birth. I care for all my friends' and family's pets. I'm dependable and honest, and my friends call me the dog whisperer.


I am an all-weather dog walker and trainer. I treat them as if they are my very own. I love working with and being around dogs, but I care for all critters! I have a four-year-old daughter who share the same love for animals and will more than likely be with me if my service is requested. Thank you for your time. I hope to gain your business!


I do animal sitting, and I wouldn't mind cleaning a little. I love animals and would love to take care of them since I can't have my own right now.

I've been around animals my entire life, from growing up with dogs and cats to raising snakes, birds, fish, small mammals and less orthodox companions, like raccoons. I've always taken care of the companions of friends and family, but my personal affinity is for senior citizens. It's always difficult, but I love taking care of them in their old age! I'm also experienced giving medications and injections if needed. I'm a certified animal Reiki practitioner, so I would be more than happy to do therapeutic work on any of my guests on request, without any additional charge. Animals rule in this house, so they have a choice of beds (including mine), a couch, ottoman, pillows, perches, litter boxes, and even a medium sized crate to make themselves comfortable in. I also like making gluten-free dog biscuits, so there will be plenty of taste-testing in the kitchen. I like to think of it as a B-n-B for animals. I enjoy taking pictures and doing little cellphone photo shoots with animals, so expect to receive at least a couple of pictures from me along with updates a few times a day while I watch your companion. For reviews of my services, please see my website. Thanks!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
