Melissa really came through for me when my boarding arrangements fell through. I managed to bring my dog over that same night, saving my vacation. My dog is a handful at the best of times and gets stressed when he has to say at a new place, but he loved playing with the other dogs and came back happy and super tired. Would definitely recommend her!

100% recommended!!! We searched for a dog trainer on thumbtack not knowing anyone in the area, and we felt that Robert was the most personable and wanting to know what we were looking to achieve..... so we drove the extra distance to have him board and train our rescue dog. The outcome was remarkable and more than we expected with only 10 days with her. He kept in touch with us and even sent photos. She came home happy and listening to commands! Some friends of ours are already booking their dogs with him and I am looking forward to seeing their progress as well. Thanks for your amazing work Robert!!!

Outstanding Service and Terrific Pet Sitter!!! I heard about Bark at the Moon Pet Sitting from a friend and how happy they were with Tammy so I decided to find out myself. We did a few trial visits to make sure our motley group of dogs liked their sitter and that she could handle such a big group of clumsy mutts and each visit went great! We finally asked her to watch them and our house for two weeks while we were on vacation. Not only did the dogs love her but she took care of a few things around the house for us too. One of our neighbors could hear them when they were outside playing each day and they could tell our gang of mutts were having a blast. She sent us photos and videos too to ease our minds. We can't recommend her enough! Thx Tam!


I pet sit cats, kittens and rodents. They will be cared for in my home. They will be spoiled, pampered and loved on until you get back from your vacation or work, etc. I have been working with cats and rodents for years and have lived with them my whole life. I have affordable pricing and connect well with all animals.


I will spend time with your family pets. I change litter box, feed and give water. I change cages and play with the pets. Thank you for your interest. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more details.


Not only do I have a great love for animals, but I also love to be outdoors. I will give your dog the exercise he/she needs while teaching them to walk properly on a leash.


I offer reliable, trustworthy business for anyone who needs deep cleaning or organizing. I also offer house sitting, animal sitting and any sort of animal care.


This job involves a life long passion.


I like to take time to work with dogs and treat them like a family member. I play ball and whatever else can be done.


Does your dog hate car rides? Does he/she have anxiety about going to the groomers? Are you too busy to take your precious pooch to the beauty salon? Then, look no further! I am a certified groomer of seven years, a stay-at-home mother, and animal behavior specialist. I will come to your house and groom your puppy right before your eyes! I provide full-service grooming, from a simple bathing to breeding and doing specific hair cuts. All grooming comes complete with nail grinding (no painful nail cutting), ear cleaning, anal glands expressed (yes gross but extremely necessary for a healthy pet), and complimentary de-shed treatment. Aside from grooming, I can also provide one-on-one training techniques (our puppy is fully potty trained at only 10 weeks old!) Note that I will groom cats if they are okay with strangers, and you agree to a small dose of children's Benadryl. This will keep your kitty from becoming too anxious and is safer for their well being and mine. Most grooming companies refuse cats and/or will give them anesthesia! My pricing is extremely reasonable and cheaper than PetsMart. It's guaranteed! You can call today to schedule an appointment and have your pet pretty for the holidays!


I will come to your house and walk, play, feed and water your animals. I have always loved animals if I see a homeless animal. I will try to feed it and get it to find it a home. I'm an animal lover. You would have to meet me, and you will see yourself.


I am a local pet sitter and dog walker who is reliable and trustworthy! Contact me for a free meet and greet and I can provide references.


I am a firm believer that pets make the world better. Pets are always caring for their humans, so I think it's important that when owners need help, they have someone who will love their pet come along. I will travel to walk your dogs, cats, and whatever animal you may have. I can also be there to feed, wash and even administer medicine to your pets if they need it.


At D&D Doggy Wash & Grooming Salon, we will take care of your pets as if they were our own. When they leave, they will look and feel great!


I love dogs. I've had taken cared of puppies and dogs before. I just recently rescued a dog and take her in.

If you need it done, we've got you covered. If you want it, we've got it. Simple as that. Taking care of Miami and the beaches since 2002.


Here at Bath and Bubbles Grooming, we offer full-service dog grooming. If you want to set up an appointment, give us a call!


I do not "officially" have a full-time pet sitting business. However, I have taken care of other people's pets as I would my own. Since I had to put my dog to sleep a year and a half ago, I have not gotten another pet (yet). I always tell people that I treat their dog(s) the way I'd want mine to be treated -- with lots of TLC (Most people want to be my dog in their next life!).


We love to clean and organize and take great pride in our work


Honesty, at first I was only looking for a paying job, but when I came across the career of pet sitting/walking, I thought it was a great idea since I am so great with animals!

My work stands out from others because I'm a natural when it comes to animals. I've been around them all my life and I've worked with them all my life, from shelters to vet offices to kennels. I genuinely care about the animal and its needs.

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.
