Matthew was very responsive and took care of a long overdue repair in my apartment. Finally I don’t have to look at an eyesore around my a/c or smell the neighbors smoke.

Suzanne took care of our home and 75 gallon fish tank and fish beautifully! We wanted to have someone in our home during our trip to see family, and felt so comfortable knowing that she was taking care of things. During our time away, a neighborhood crisis occurred with gas leaks coming through the sewer system and she was there for us and our home. We would definitely hire her again in the future! She also gave us advice on our dog’s fears about going down our stairs - he now goes up and down without issue!! She is friendly and warm - we are glad to have found her!

I found Suki through Thumbtack and couldn't be happier. I live in lower Manhattan and was struggling to find a reliable, qualified and reasonably priced dog walking service after my current walker for ~2 years moved to California. Suki is great to work with. She is flexible and conscious of both mine and Oakley's needs. She updates me on Oakley's walks and is very polite and caring. I couldn't have asked for a better person to take care of my pup when I can't be there. I highly recommend entrusting Suki with your pet care needs.

I know that my dog can be a pain to groom, but Joanne and Jazmin give so much patience to my aggressive pup. Eventually my dog give up fighting and allow them to groom at peace. I would definitely ask them to groom again. ❤️ I will not put up to my previous groomer that does not allow people see their dog get groomed. I highly doubt that they treated my dog with care. At home grooming are so much worth it.

I had Jenn's pet care watch my bunny for around 2.5 weeks while I was on vacation. I could not have been happier! They came every day to give her food/water, clean up her cage, and let her run around to have some fun. I was sent pics and updates daily, and could see that they were taking very good care of my pet while I was away. I would recommend to anyone! Jenn and her associate Jessica are fantastic!!

My experience with Bruce could be described as nothing less than a blessing. He is extremely easy to talk to, answers any question, and truly cares about you, your pet and your experience. He is very informative and is willing to work with your needs. AND it’s a plus he comes straight to you! I cannot wait to continue to work with Bruce and believe he will do great things for me and my pup.

Our little 14-year old guy has problems with his back legs and because of this we were struggling with where to have him groomed. Then Nancy’s Shaggy to Chic Mobile Dog Grooming came to our rescue. We were able to have our guy groomed in the comfort and security of his own home. And Nancy was so kind and gentle with him. She talked to him throughout, calming his fears and giving him kisses and hugs. She even provided treats which he happily gobbled up! Nancy took her time with him – adjusting to his temperament – and transformed him from the shaggy guy he was to the chic guy he is. She provided the towels, all the equipment and the love. We only needed to provide a place to wash him. If you are looking for a professional groomer who really cares about you and your pet, we highly recommend Nancy’s Shaggy to Chic Mobile Dog Grooming. Couldn’t be happier.

Chris and his staff are super professional and knowledgeable about dogs and their behavior. They consistently go above and beyond for us. Even same day requests are almost never an issue which is great for our hectic schedule of working in NYC and living in JC. He even bakes for my fur babies! I would recommend to anyone who is as crazy about their dog's care as I am.

I had the pleasure of meeting Adene when she came to feed and check on my cat several times this summer. She was thorough in asking what kind of care my cat needed, and was specific in how much time she would be able to spend with her. She clearly communicated the timing of her visits, and texted a picture of my kitty on each visit. Adene was wonderful and I will absolutely use her services again in the future! Highly recommended!

Sharon Squared Pet services is run by two amazing people and we couldn't have been luckier to have found them. I love that they are genuinely caring people who display unreserved affection for our dog. In addition to daily dog walks and trips to the dog run, we entrust Sharon to take care of our dog whenever we go on vacation. Our dog room and boards with Sharon and knowing that he is in good hands makes it a lot easier for us to go away. They're the best!

Andrea and her husband John go above and beyond to take care of our dog, a shy rescue who needed help to open up. Great value for our money. Our pup is tired out from having so much fun with her doggy friends during her walks and greets us calmly when we get home. She's also now better about welcoming strangers to pet her. Highly recommend!

Brigitte provided such amazing care for my cat! My lily was so nervous while I was away, but Brigitte was the perfect person for the job - providing the highest level of care and companionship for my feline, and looking after my cats every need with the utmost skill. I cannot recommend her highly enough for all prospective clients - and I will be relying on her for my future cat sitting needs.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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 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 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.

    How much does it cost to groom a dog?

    Dog grooming costs depend on the service your pet requires. Nationally, the average price for dog grooming ranges from $40 to $100, varying by location. Not surprisingly, dog grooming on New York’s Upper East Side costs nearly double what it costs in a small town in Montana. Dog groomers typically handle every aspect of your dog’s beauty and hygiene, from tooth brushing to hairstyling. One potential way to save is to have your dog groomed at your doggy daycare — sometimes they offer discounts on dog grooming prices for clients. Here are some examples of average dog grooming costs in the San Francisco Bay Area. Please note these prices would include transportation fees for picking up and dropping off your dog to your home:

    • Nails: $30 a la carte or $20 when bundled with another service
    • Toothbrushing: $30 a la carte or $20 when bundled with another service
    • Tooth scraping (removal of plaque from teeth to prevent infection), with anesthesia: $600
    • Tooth scraping, without anesthesia: $400.
    • Wash and dry: $60
    • Ears: $30 a la carte or $20 when bundled with another service
    • Grooming package: $130 — includes wash, nails, teeth, ears, gland expression and haircut
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
