Ellen Chase has stayed in our home several times, taking care of our babies (kitty and dog). We always return to a perfect home, purring kitty, watered plants and fish fed, but it is seeing our needy little dog in a calm and happy state that makes us most appreciative of Ellen's kind care. We've been told by family and friends that we are Type-A personalities so know that in recommending Ellen Chase, we feel she really is a wonderful home and pet sitter.

Emerald Valley Pet Medical Center has been my veterinary service for 16 years. The staff is very ferret-knowledgeable so I feel I can trust them to help me make the right decisions regarding my pets. Dr. Ron is always a pleasure to deal with; he is funny and witty, but understands when to speak plainly about a pet's condition. Dr. Kathy really knows her holistic medicines. Between the pair of them and their wonderful staff, I am totally confident my pets and I will receive the care and attention we need. They are all wonderfully compassionate and caring.

It was such a relief knowing that our big girl Dakota was for sure getting the walks she needed while we were honeymooning in Hawaii and the girls (cats) had fresh water and everyone was well taken care of. Paws'n Go was great and reliable, we have used their services before and would again and we reccomend them! thanks Diane!

About

Hi! My name is Amy and I'm 22 years old. I have a vast amount of experience with animals, and have owned three dogs, six cats, and many small animals in my lifetime. I recently moved to Eugene from Vermont after I graduated from the University of Vermont. Since arriving, I have been picking up various pet sitting and dog walking positions. If you need someone to watch your pet(s) while you're away, or you're finding that your dog needs a little extra exercise during the day, I'm your perfect match! I have a reliable car that's pet friendly, and an open schedule. If you're interested, I'd be happy to send you a resume and reference. Thanks and have a great day!

About

I love animals and I am currently studying to be a zoologist. When I take care of someone else's pet, I think to myself, "If this was my pet, what would I do to make it happy and healthy?" This approach always seems to work and everyone loves how happy their pets are with me. I clean cages, water, feed, care, love, bathe, walk, you name it. I also know a little bit of puppy training. So if you have a puppy and need to travel, I can keep up with your training while you're gone.

About

I've been blessed to own a number of different pets over the years, including cats, dogs, birds, and yes, one snake. I connect well with them, even if they have challenging personalities. I have the most experience with big dogs, specifically boxers, and I'm not scared of any breed (including any pit bull breeds)! I even rescued and owned a boxer who had been trained to fight other dogs (there are some *evil* humans out there), and was able to successfully re-train him so he could just play and enjoy life. Right now, I don't own any pets, but my boyfriend/roommate has three sweet outside cats. He also loves dogs and got to know my last dog Roxy (boxer) before she went over the rainbow bridge. We live out in the country with a few acres of land, so any dogs that I may sit for you could stay there (if you would like), and they'd have a few acres to run around on. I will never leave your dog(s) unattended outside though, to ensure they are safe and happy. Plus, I love playing with dogs! If it's an overnight stay, the dog(s) would stay inside with us at night. I am also more than happy to come to your home. I will follow any dietary needs or special training instructions your pet may need. I also have experience with crate-training, walks, baths, etc.

About

I am helpful, hardworking and professional, but most importantly, friendly. Whether it's housecleaning or pet sitting, I'll be sure to get the job done.

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.
