I don't think anything could have gone better. Sarah was wonderful with Miss Missy, very attentive, she recognized that Miss Missy was a little apprehensive with her bigger dogs and accommodated for that and she provided services that I requested at no charge since Miss Missy was an overnight guest. Just great customer service overall. I was hesitant at first because of the drive to get there, etc. but once I found my way I can say it's well worth the drive and you will not regret leaving your pet with her.

Kathleen did an awesome job training Marley! He goes in his kennel on command, walks so much better on the leash and stays in place when told to do so! The overall function of our house has massively improved thanks to Family Dog K9 Training!!

I hired Carol of Must Love Dogs a year ago for my older Chihuahua named Butchy. Butchy has experienced back issues since turning 10 years old so I was worried about leaving so many detailed instructions for our pet sitter. Carol listened to my concerns and was willing to work to meet all of Butchy’s special needs. Also, I learned quickly that Carol too had a Chihuahua and understood the demands of an older very small dog. In the year that Carol has worked for us, I have found her to be extremely reliable and trustworthy. Many of our neighbors have told me that they have seen her walking with Butchy around the block. She always sends text photos and messages while we are out of town which I found to be a nice touch. I feel she truly cares about animals and is genuinely concerned about their well-being. Butchy and I would highly recommend her as a pet sitter.

This service is OUTSTANDING. Not only did they perform what was advertised, but went above and beyond it. I highly recommend them and will be sure to use them every time I need Pet Setting. We were gone for 10 days and the kitties were well taken care of. Greatly appreciated his updates to us on what was happening each time. Although we were unable to communicate with him as we would have liked to as we were out of the county, he continued communicating with us on our babies.

I have been a dog lover/owner my entire life and a groomer for the last 15 years and have pets of my own. I have also worked for many years in a small grooming shop. So let me come INTO your home, so you and your pet can have a less stressful experience. I have reasonable rates, so please give me Jo a call for a quote. Some of the services that I offer are trims, shave-downs, nail trims, and baths. The basic grooming consists of a nail-trim, trimming the hair from between the pads of the feet, shaving the hair of the belly, bath(optional) brush-outs and/or trim. I also perform basic horse grooming. That would include cleaning out the hooves, bathing and brush-outs. I am looking forward to doing business with you!!

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.
