Terra's personality was terrific, very upbeat and attentive to my dog and her well being. She didn't rush the job, but made sure my dog was at ease as well as she could. I'm going to be recommending her to everyone I know that needs a pet groomed.

I decided to use a pet sitter for the first time on my recent business trip. Previously using various kennels and finding friends to take care of my dogs. I am very happy with Furball Fitness! I got updates on every visit and a picture of them. The dogs were happy when we returned and not stressed like in previous situations. I will definitely use them again and I highly recommend it.

Sit. Stay. Grow., LLC took care of our cats and fish for a week while we were on vacation. We got daily detailed reports with pictures, exchanged emails, and always felt that our cats and fish were receiving good care. We also felt secure in that our house was being watched in our absence. It was a pleasure to arrive home and find everything as we had left it. All pets fed, litter boxes clean, food cans washed and in the drainer to be recycled, all pet accidents cleaned up and our mail waiting for us on the counter. It is obvious that Susan and her co-workers take their pet care service seriously and strive to do the best job possible.

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.

Allison took wonderful care of our two cats while we were gone during Christmas break. She sent us daily updates with photos which put us at ease and always made us feel that our cats are well cared for and happy. She is very considerate and easy to work with and we are definitely going to use her services in the future! I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone in need of a pet sitter, she loves animals and she seems to thoroughly enjoy taking care of them.

Review: Tim Bruno, Pack Boss LLC Tim was my dog sitter and trainer for several years. If I could have brought him to Colorado with me, I would have! The dogs enjoyed him – good runs/walks, other dogs and people to play with (and Tim made them all mind their manners). He’s reliable and sends quick updates while one is gone. Tim helped me work through some behavioral issues with one of my dogs who started biting people, and even wrote an affidavit for the court appearance. Tim is also a veteran – you’ve trusted him with your life and freedom, now trust him with your pets.

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.

Jody was excellent. We requested her help with watching over two cats while we were away on an extended vacation. She was great and prompt in communicating with us and understanding what was required. She was very friendly with the cats and regularly sent us pictures of our cats while we were away. She was a pleasure to work with and is dependable and trustworthy. I definitely recommend her

I was nervous to leave town and have my newly adopted dog with my older dog. Natasha and Karen visited my dogs multiple times and made sure the dynamic between the two dogs are good and supervised them for play time. I received messages, videos and pictures from my dogs playing, I'm just a nervous mama! They are great I recommend them. They will love your pups as much as you do!

    I take my Yorkie and my Angora rabbit to the Dirty Dog Rehab. I am asked how I want the cut and it is always exactly how I wanted it. My pets are ready when promised. Even though I was told the groomer never groomed a rabbit before she tried it and did an Excellent job! I am so happy with the groomer and I would not take my pets any place else!

    About

    I have a 87 pound 5-year-old German Shepherd of my own that I take care of. I have always had a German Shepherd as a pet, and learned to not only take care of them, but befriend them. The German Shepherd I have now is high energy and very protective of my family and I. I frequently pet sit for a family who owns two dogs and four cats and I have done overnight stays to take care of their pets.

    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.
