Tina was trustworthy and dedicated to our animals and our home while we were out of town. She handled our two dogs and three cats for several days. We felt confident that our animals were in great hands and would recommend Tina for house/pet sitting.

Jarod and Lahny did a great job with our Miss Daisy Bell. Daisy had social and behavioral issues, mostly due to our lack of understanding that you need to have boundaries and discipline with your dog. You can love them TOO much which in the end makes an unhappy doggie. Jarod has taught Daisy basic commands and given her lots of love and affection as her reward, vs. snacks, during her stay. So, she lost a few needed pounds as well! Daisy seems less aggressive towards people and other dogs but I have lots of homework still to do! I also received a large bag of high quality dog food, leather leash, and a larger crate to take home! I hope to use Jarod/Lahny again for boarding and I think Daisy will be happy to see them again which is the true sign that she was treated well while in their facility. I'm so happy with the outcome and to have a well-trained doggie at home with us! Thank you Jarod and Lahny!

I have never had a pet sitter stay overnight for my dogs but met Darlene and she was so nice, professional and my dogs loved her. She has dog sit for me twice and am very pleased with Darlene. Would not let anyone else sit with them. Always keeps me updated on them and sends pics of them. Has definitely put my mind at ease!!!

We had a great experience. It was very apparent our 6 month-old little beagle did too. He came home so happy. He had learned many things needed to become a good family pet. Now, if we, the humans, can follow our instructions to keep reinforcing the learning. You know, it's hard to teach an old dog (human) new tricks. Heather was great with Shylo and we would recommend her to anyone looking for super dog training.

    Not every pet groomer is willing to or likes to groom a Pitt Bull with the bad rap they get these days with that being said Ms Emily was very loving and does a great job grooming him. Definitely would recommend her to every pet owner, Thanks for listening, Donna Galyan

    What we do offers higher quality of service. We like to go above and beyond for our friends. We don't have "clients" because we like to make it personal. Your loved one means just as much to us as they do to you. We are animal lovers and we show it. Were not out to break your pocket for a potty break or a simple walk. Everyday is a blessing to do what you love and do it again the next day!

    Takes care of my puppy all the time. He is always so excited to see her again!!


    I do a little bit of everything. I also clean houses, walk doggies and house-sit for the doggies. I have references if needed, and I would love to help you out.


    I am a Salisbury-based pet sitter. I have owned pets throughout my life, but no longer have a pet of my own because of a no-pets policy. I have mostly been around dogs all my life, but I have had a few cats also. If you are looking for a reliable pet sitter, consider me as your personal pet sitter.


    I will feed, water and play with your animals. I'll collect your mail for you. Take your animals on a walk and whatever else you'd like me to do.


    I just love being around animals i am good with animals

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.

    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.

    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.
