Tina was wonderful! I knew by the way she greeted my pets she was a fellow animal lover! My two cats where well taken care of and she even sent me a "hi mom" picture from my boys!! In addition to taking such good care of my boys she called me to let me know bad weather was expected here and to travel safely. My search for someone to care for my animals is over as I have found the best.!! I highly recommend Tina!! Sue Bartell

After a bad experience with a pet kennel, I tried in home care and hired Drew and Shannon Hyde at Leash Life. Just an amazing difference! I was nervous to have someone in my home but they were wonderful, sending me pics and video every day to let me know my cat, Melman, was doing well. When I returned home, I found my mail placed on the credenza and a very happy cat. If you can avoid caged care---even if it's an expensive cat condo---I highly recommend Drew & Shannon's service. Despite assurances from the kennel facility that my cat would not come in contact with other cats, he came home with a nasty abscess my vet said could only have come from another cat's claw or bite. Lesson learned. I will now only use Leash Life in the future.

Kathleen was kind enough to shave my 2 severely matted Persian cats. They have always needed to be sedated at the vet to groom but Kathleen somehow did it without sedation (and no war wounds either.) She is reasonably priced and did an amazing job. I will definitely use her again and will be recommending her to friends.

We have 3 dogs who are absolutely our babies and we are extremely careful about leaving them with anyone. One of them in particular is special needs and ever since we realized her condition, we thought we could only board her at the vet. We love our vet, but boarding can be so stressful for our babies, not to mention having to drop off and pick up at certain times. Sam has always been great with our dogs at the vet, so we were very excited to learn that she does in-home pet sitting. She understands how to handle our special needs baby, as well as our other two, and we feel comfortable knowing that she will respond appropriately to a veterinary emergency if needed. Sam texts us with updates and pictures so we don't worry. And it's so nice to have our dogs already home to greet us when we return. We definitely recommend Sam to anyone in need of pet sitting services!

After almost 4 months of trying to deal with our Golden Retriever puppy not listening to us, jumping up onto the couches, surfing the counters, wandering upstairs and chewing on everything, we finally decided it was time to find a professional to work with him. We received Paul's number from our vet, and boy are we glad we did! Paul has been nothing short of amazing! He came to our house every morning for 4 weeks straight to train our puppy and work with him one-on-one. Toward the end of training, Paul even took him to the park and hardware store many days to allow for distractions. He showed my husband and I exactly the kind of training he was doing with our dog and let us know exactly what we needed to do in order to keep our dog in tip-top shape for the rest of our lives. It was incredible to see the transformation of our puppy over those 4 weeks. He now knows the commands- heel, sit, down, sitting at entryways, place, off and free. Also, his behavior has improved significantly. We couldn't be happier with our decision to use Paul. His professionalism, dedication, positive attitude and excellence in dog training certainly make him what he is- "The Dog Professor!" And the best part is there is a lifetime guarantee- if our puppy regresses in any way, we just call Paul up and he will be back to train him! If you are looking for that right person to change both your's and your dog's life for the best, please do yourself a favor and call Paul! This is one decision you will not regret! Thank you, Paul, for everything you have done to make our lives so much easier and happier with our pup!

My husband and I have a large family of unconventional kids including 2 boxers, a cockatiel and a salt water tank. When we were looking for a new pet sitting service, who ever we found had big shoes to fill and Walkin-n-Wagging not only filled them but overflowed them with love and kindness for our little family. In 2006 we went on a vacation out of the country. During that trip our boxer who has since passed away in 2008, came down with an extreme case of pancreatitis. Not only did they recognize the seriousness of her illness and rushed her to the vet but also went by daily to visit and comfort her until we could make it home. With our new boxer additions, we have a busy house with lots of dishes to fill, walks to take, feathers to fluff, and fish to feed and I never doubt the care and love the will receive when we are away from home.

James and Katy at Andromeda Pet Services are GREAT. Not only do they do a great job caring for my dog, you can tell they both really love animals. Their emergency vet experience is a real plus. Thankfully we have not needed that help but we are glad they have the experience if we did ever need it. We would recommend Andromeda to anyone who needs any type of pet sitting or per care.

On All Fours is the greatest!!! Responsive, reliable, passionate and professional. I have nothing but good to say about this business and it's personnel. Ms. Rae immediately insisted on records, vet contacts and all the things a conscientious care-giver would need to provide comprehensive pet care service for my babies. I get daily photos and updates while at work, which really lets me feel at ease about their well-being and comfort while I'm away.

He was willing to make a house call to help groom my cat who was dealing with matted coat. He saved me having to drive my cat to a groomer where my cat would,have arrived stressed. Some groomers who I spoke to said of my cat is stressed they probably would not be able to groom her. The other alternative was to,take her to groomer at the vet and they would drug her to groom her. I was lucky to find this groomer. He was wonderful with my cat who was a bit of a handful but he eventually got her to a place where she was calm enough to comb out the mats. I highly recommend him.

NNF took care of our two dogs. She played with them and fed and cared for them for a long weekend. She was totally professional and trustworthy. She even transported a stray we were caring for to a shelter for us. She went the extra mile and monetarily, I did not pay as much as I would have if I had boarded the dog at the vet's office. I will definitely call Cris again to care for our pets. I don't see how she could improve on any aspect of her business. Thanks Cris!!!

I've known Cathy for over 30 years. You can't go wrong entrusting your critters to her care. Whether it's for a vacation, regular dog walking and feeding, or you temporarily can't do it yourself, Cathy will give loving care. If you need your animal taken to the groomers or vet, she will do it! . . . And she'll keep you up-to-date with regular reports. You won't do better with anyone else!

    Teresa has kept me updated, is local to Rock Hill and is a vet tech. It is my first time working with her and it has been great. I know Mr. Phobos and Mr. Deimos are in good hands, even if they're hiding under the bed.

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
