It was good to see a smaller more conscientious dog grooming facility. I felt Kato had the best possible grooming available and he was met with great kindness as was I. We will be going back to see NanSea.

Melissa was excellent. We were in quite a pinch - leaving for an international trip in just 24 hours from when I posted. She was able to swing by for a tour of the house and visit each day. Melissa/Let's Go is now our go-to pet sitter. So glad to have found her!

I have been thoroughly impressed by Paw Print Pet Sitting. Both the office staff Laura and my Pet Sitter, Shelly, have been nothing but courteous and friendly in every interaction I’ve had with them. I feel confident when I leave my furry babies in Shelly care that they will get not just essentials like water and food, but also genuine affection and play time. The fact that Paw Print Pet Sitting is insured gave me peace of mind to start working with them, but Shelly has been incredibly professional and I felt right away that she’d make a good fit. We live in Minneapolis, I really like that my Petsitter lives nearby, another neat aspect that Paw Print Pet Sitting does. The prices are very fair for the time and tasks involved, and every time I have a sit done, I get video updates along with texts as to how everything went. I know it’s a bit scary choosing someone to care for your four-footed children, but I can say I’d confidently recommend these folks to anyone in the Twin Cities area. Laura clearly puts her heart into her business, and I couldn’t be happier that I gave Paw Print Pet Sitting a chance. Looking forward to many more sits in the future!

Jenny is a professional pet care provider. She does an excellent job taking care of our two dogs and two cats. When we interviewed her she had a lot of questions for us about our pets, she really wanted to get to know them. We have a new puppy and Jenny wanted to know the all the verbal and non-verbal commands to help him pass level 1ASPCA training.

Megan's employee Chris was on time, and great with my dogs.My dogs were very happy after their walk. I have used Megan's company on 2 separate situations and she was very professional.


I am available to walk your dog while you are away at work or on a vacation. Please contact me, and we can go from there.


I offer dog walking, house-sitting and poo and yard cleanup service for cats and dogs. I will come up to 2x a day to service your dog or cat or replenish food and water and let out or take for a 20-minute walk.


Boarding vs. Petsitting When you take your pet to be boarded, do you worry about how much time your pet is spending in a cage, how much time they get to run around, how much human interaction its getting? Do you know how much stress this puts on your pet? When you hire someone to petsit, they come into your home, where your pet feels most comfortable and happy, and can get alot of human interaction, along with time on walks, or running around the yard... Doesn't hiring a petsitter make more sense?


My business is great because of my over-10-year clients who keep me coming back because I love them like they are family; they treat me like family, and my clients have always been word of mouth and has been very successful so far. I do everything, from cleaning companies to homes and cabins. I'm asked by all to paint for my clients as I paint and clean as if I live there. I also do animal care and house watching, so my clients can take the vacations with no worries, as they deserve a few times in a year. I run a music studio during the day, so I'm well-rounded and great in the customer service aspect of it all. I have a BS in science for criminal justice with minor in German and am going for my masters now. I'm opening up an online craft store now, as crafting is my new love! I also have done tons of jobs doing cleanup after the death of people's loved ones and turnovers in 1 day for new rental clients for big apartment complexes and for many owners of many homes. I've done hoarding cleanup and am educated and trained in biohazard suits and equipment. I'm hoping that I may have the pleasure to meet each and everyone of you, and you can judge for yourself any ability that I may have and if you ask for a different job, I may have done that as well; if not, I'm willing to learn and try! See you soon!


I love pets, especially dogs, since I own one myself. I enjoy walking them and caring for them. I can also sit for dogs.


I would like take good care of your pet(s). I have done this for a long time, and I love animals so it comes natural to me.


I enjoy every breed of animals, such as dogs and cats. I love taking care of them as well. I am looking to look after your pet while you are away. I enjoy going on walks, playing, and anything in between. I love the happiness that animals bring and enjoy making them happy! Please contact me.

I am a vet tech who watches pets in my home. I live with my fiancé, and our two dogs and two cats. I think animals get too stressed in a kennel and believe it's better for them to be in a home with people. As a vet tech, I am able to give your pet any medication it may require, and I can also give fluids if needed. I can provide references upon request.

I am a high school graduate. I have dogs and have had other pets. I'm very caring, athletic, outdoorsy, and compassionate. I love animals, and I am looking to pet sit this summer before I leave for college to make some extra money!


My aim is to treat your pets just like any other family member. I will treat them with love and care for them as if they were my own. My top priority is to provide TLC to your pets. I provide care in the pets' own home, as I know it can be an inconvenience to have to bring them to a kennel and have them boarded. Not to mention, pets are most comfortable in their own homes, with their toys, blankets, etc close at hand. I have spent the last three years volunteering at the Buffalo Animal Humane Society as a dog walker and have also volunteered at the Animal Humane Society's annual Walk for Animals. I've loved animals my whole life, and I would love the chance to care for your pets while you are at work or on vacation.

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.
