Jerrie is a wonderful pet sitter. We have used her numerous times to stay at our house and also come in the middle of the day to walk our dog. She writes down how your pet is doing in her care and takes good care of your house. My dog really likes her too!!! I feel comfortable having her stay in our house while we are out of town. I highly recommend Jerrie for your pet sitting needs!

Christine took wonderful care of my cat while I was away on a European vacation for 10 days. She met and exceeded my expectations for the care of my pet. It was evident on my return that she had brushed and played with my cat, and kept in contact with any questions or concerns throughout the whole process which was a big ease to my mind.

In a word... WOW! Finally, I have found a team that does what they say and do it well. I can not say enough good things. Angela picked up my dogs, asked the right questions, listened to my requests, did what was discussed and exceeded my expectations. I am not the type of person to ever write a review be a good or bad so for this being one of the one and only reviews I've ever written trust me when I say that they are on point. Feel free to trust them with your pets! I DO!

Shanna has taken care of my dog Bandit. She would take him out and have play time. His favorite was the hind leg massages. I had always been anxious to leave Bandit, but to see how happy he was to see Shanna put me at ease.

I have never left my dogs with anyone but family. After Karen came over for an interview (?) I was impressed with how much my two dogs liked her and wanted to crowd around her. She has stayed with them twice and the first time I admit I thought about the dogs some, but when I returned they were totally happy and I had no reservations about the second time -felt totally comfortable and had no worries. I like the way she leaves notes to tell me how the dogs were and acted. My little Cairn Terrier even set by her during the last visit which is unusual for her. I had her come over 4 times a day to feed, let out and walk my dogs. I have recommended her to a couple of my friends. Would have been above perfect if the yard had been picked up of the waste when she had the dogs out in the yard, but did not ask her to do this nor do i know of anyone who does. I would be willing to recommend her to anyone. I totally believe in Playful Paw Pet Care Services.

Sunshine was wonderful! I was able to travel and KNOW my cats were being well cared for. One of my cats is very unsure about anyone she doesn't know and she took to Sunshine right away. We will use At Home Pet Care again without a doubt.

We fell in love with Jessica. She is very professional, great value and fantastic work quality. She definitely​ went over and above. Not only did she take wonderful, loving care of our 161 lb English Mastiff and 135 lb Bullmastiff, she also tended to our Cat and Amazon parrot, not because she was hired to but just because she loves animals, and wanted to. Our dogs get very excited when they see her. It's fun to watch. This was the first time we've ever hired a Dog Walker and I was so worried. I don't even like to say Dog Walker because she's so much more. Jessica put our minds at ease as soon as she walked in our home and greeted our dogs. Mastiffs can be overwhelming but she wasn't taken aback one bit. I would hire Jessica at Peppy Paws Dog Walking LLC a thousand times over.

Taara did an excellent job with my long-haired chihuahua, Jax. We never used a pet sitter with him before and were quite worried he would not be very easy to watch. When we went to meet her, she was outside with her dogs. My dog is very vocal when he is scared and he did just that, but Taara just reached out, and scooped him up. She held him close and comforted him. At that moment I knew he would do fine with her. After dropping him off, she kept us informed with texts and pics of him throughout his stay. He actually made friends with an Aussie she was watching. She also had a spa day with a doggy massage and nail trim ( she asked if it was okay first). When we picked him up, he actually kissed her goodbye, on the nose, while I was holding him (that has never happened, he is very protective of us) Taara is a very caring and loving towards animals. She is very knowledgeable and I highly recommend her as a pet sitter and I definitely will use her again! 👍👍👍

I wanted to send a quick message to let you know how pleased I was with Shelly this past weekend. She really showed great concern and care for my 6 cats and was very descriptive in her emails to me while I was away on holiday. By far, she has been the best pet sitter I’ve had. I would really like to keep using her from here on out as the pet sitter for my cats. My cats really liked her and she just took such good care of them. Please, if it’s possible I really want to keep Shelly as my pet sitter from here on out. It was a great experience and I knew from the “get go” upon meeting her, my cats were in excellent hands with her. I am truly a satisfied and happy client!

Lynn takes care of my dog Wilson when I'm out of town. Has 4 or 5 times now. He wags his tail when we arrive. He is 11 years old and a cocker poodle mix. Lynn give him personal care like cleaning his eyes with a wet wash cloth when needed. She really loves animals. Without any hesitation I highly recommend Lynn to anyone who wants their dog boarded in a loving home and not a traditional kennel.

Tonisa is just plain awesome. She takes such great care of our fur babies. Tonisa is a trusted human with our dogs and they look forward to her visits for their walks and when we travel she stays with them so they have someone with them. She is great about sending photos and giving extremely detailed notes. We would recommend Tonisa to anyone looking for a responsible, caring and thorough friend for your fur babies.

Michelle has been there for our family since the day we met her over a year ago. Our family has since grown to 2 dogs and she has taken on the additional responsibility of a new puppy like a champ! She obviously loves dogs and they love her. She consistently sends us updates after each visit and we also enjoy the photos of our little "kiddos" that she sends. It's so nice to have someone we trust to take care of our dogs, as they are our family. Michelle not only ensures they are taken care of, she gives them love like they are family to her as well. We are lucky to have her!

Roxanne is amazing! She has worked so diligently with our family and our puppy's needs. Any problem we were having, she had a way to address it. The best part is, it works!! She has a miracle solution for every instance. Roxanne is always willing to listen and do what is best for the family and the dog. Her techniques are easy to follow and always positive! She has reassured our family that we are making progress and are doing what is best for our puppy. We have seen wonderful changes in our puppy and are excited to continue to work with Roxanne. :)

I had to find a sitter for my 2 dogs and my cat and had to find one in a short period of time. Cody responded within 24 hours and watched my animals from Friday-Monday. He responded very quickly especially when I needed one on such a short notice, and he was very polite and I could tell how much he loved animals. He did a wonderful job taking care of my babies, and I will be using him whenever I need a sitter for my animals from now on, and I will also be referring him to any of my friends that need a pet sitter. If you want a reliable person and a person who gives your animals lots of love and attention, he will not let you down!

Alex has taken care of my english mastiff mix many times. The dog adores him. ALex has experience with large breeds, so he is not intimidated by their rambunctiousness and has a gentle firmness that the dog responds to very well. Besides, Alex is great to work with on the people side as far as communication and professional attitude. i highly recommend Alex for dog walking and dog sitting jobs.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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.

What vaccines do dogs need to be groomed?

It’s important to make sure your dog is up to date on its vaccines before taking it to a groomer. Vaccinations keep your dog and the other dogs that use the establishment healthy. Viruses can linger long after a dog is gone, so an unvaccinated dog can infect a number of other dogs days or even months after their visit. Find out about your dog groomer’s vaccination policies, and think carefully about receiving services from a company that does not require vaccinations. Here are the main vaccinations that are generally required for dog grooming:

  • Parvovirus: Parvo is a nasty virus that can kill dogs within 48-72 hours of infection. The virus is incredibly persistent and, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association, is resistant to heat, cold, humidity and drying. It’s spread by dog-to-dog contact or contact with contaminated feces, environments (food and water bowls, collars and leashes, etc.,) or people.
  • Adenovirus 2: Dogs receive this vaccination to protect against canine infectious hepatitis. The vaccination can also helps prevent canine cough.
  • Canine distemper virus: Distemper has no known cure and can cause serious pain, illness, and even death, although recovery is possible with medical intervention.  
  • Rabies: This disease attacks the central nervous system and — when untreated — will
  • lead to death. The CDC recommends euthanizing an unvaccinated animal that has been exposed to rabies, although six-month isolation followed by vaccination is also permissible.
  • Para-influenza: Canine para-influenza leads to kennel cough and an unhappy dog.
