Deedee helped me and my wife with our 1.5 year old german shepherd tremendously. He’s well behaved when he’s in “training” mode but can be a terror when he’s not focused or remotely distracted. With only four sessions, his behavior went from almost unbearable (always play biting, barking at everything, not great at walking, etc.) to the point where he’s getting compliments on his behavior. We participated in two separate (different locations) group-training sessions when he was younger but the results weren’t where we wanted them. I would highly recommend one-on-one training with Deedee because she teached us, the owners, as much -if not more- than she was able to teach our dog (it could be beneficial to do group training after an initial training with Deedee to socialize your dog/pup). I never realized how much we thought we were doing correctly (per the group training classes) that just wasn’t cutting it. He still has a ways to go but she sets a strong foundation. Overall, if you have a dog you simply aren’t seeing the results you want from training or a young puppy, call Deedee. We’ll likely be boarding our dog with her as well when we go on vacation. She’s very professional, responsive and accommodating. We both highly recommend her.

Lynn is absolutely wonderful!! We've used her on several occasions. I prefer to bring my dog to someone's house while I am out of town. The first time we used Lynn, she came to my house to meet my pet for a short time. Then we did a trial period of a couple of hours where I took my pet to her house to meet her dogs. It went fantastic! Lynn and her husband are true dog lovers. My dog loves going over to her house. Recently, we were on vacation for 2 weeks, and Lynn would send photos and emails of how my pet was doing, which was very comforting. She follows any special instructions such as dietary restrictions. She and her husband are just absolutely wonderful, and our dog things so too ! I'm so glad we found her and she is conveniently located in Greensburg. I don't hesitate to recommend Lynn at all. Just truly stellar !

Carrie is GREAT! She is clearly a pet lover (as is her partner). She makes an effort to be flexible to one's schedule. She does not just sit and watch the dog play outside, but is actively involved. If you need her to find palace off-leash, she will find it. She will come to your home and she will do overnights. Her home is rather small to have a large pet there but it is full of love and comfort, which is most important. She will check in w/ you everyday, give you updates; never complains (even if your dog helps her to sprain her ankle!) She is trustworthy and I highly recommend her!

Jess took great care with my two dogs and cat while we were on vacation. I knew from the moment I met her that the animals would quickly adapt to her caring for them. They instantly fell in love with her wonderful personality and passion for animals. Dependable, caring, and affordable. Highly recommend.

Heather and Lindsey just left my home, leaving it smelling fresh and looking so clean. I needed a deep clean for a holiday party and now I can simply focus on the cooking and enjoying my company. I really appreciate their being willing to come in at night so I did not have to take a day off of work. Every nook and cranny has been vacumed, cleaned and polished. Excellent job! Friendly, knowledgeable and efficient.


I will be caring for animals while their owners are unavailable. I have been around pets, specifically dogs, my whole life. I understand that your pet is not just an animal, but it is also a member of the family and requires special care and attention.


I'm a very fun, loving, caring pet sitter who treats your pets like my own. They are members of our family and I get no greater satisfaction pleasing customers and their furry friends. I'm an experienced sitter who has dealt with numerous pets of all breeds and sizes. It's something I really enjoy doing. Connecting with the animals is indescribable:)

The services offered are the following: * Doggy day care (including overnights) * Home visits * Dog walking * Pet taxi


I will walk your "furry child" when you can't be there to give him the exercise and stimulation he needs. I love dogs and will treat your baby like my own.


I love all animals, big or small. I would take them to the doggie park, bath and pamper them, let them play with toys and just have a great time.


We help people train their dogs to be well-behaved canines. We use positive methods and the clicker. A Plus offers private lessons, a board and train and boarding while you are on vacation. Marcy Niedbala is the owner and has been in business since 1994. Please take a look at our website.


We are a full-service dog grooming salon. We have very reasonable prices and the best service and care anywhere. We enjoy doing hand scissor trims, short trims or taking the hairy shedding dog and making them beautiful with less shedding hair, and shiny coat. We also offer dog day care services. My staff and I are trained to offer pet grooming for all pets, i..e., dogs, cats, birds, and other exotics.


I pet sit animals, from dogs and cats to hamsters and rats. I am currently a student at the Veterinary Technician Institute.

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.
