Andrea picks up my puppy, Yuki 3 times a week, as well as training once a week. She makes everything so easy, and I always feel so comfortable leaving my baby with her! She's even going to board my puppy at her home while I'm away on vacation. Thanks for everything Andrea!

Could not have asked for a better cat sitter while I was away! When I met her, it was clear that she had an innate love for animals and I knew my cats would be in good hands. She sent me emails giving me updates on what she did and how the cats were doing. I plan to use her services in the future and HIGHLY RECOMMEND her to anyone needing a pet sitter. Thanks again, Megan!

I have a large number of animals - feral cats, indoor and outdoor cats and dogs with different diets, meds and needs which she willingly and competently accommodated. I am happy to provide a reference to potential customers.

We were a little worried because this would have been the longest we would be gone from our pup but Paw Addicts paired us with a fantastic family! A special thank you to Lita who, not only sent us multiple pictures a day, but also gave our pup the extra attention he needed. Thank you SO much Paw Addicts Pet Care Services!

    Regular grooming is essential to the maintenance of your pet's health. A well-groomed pet is more likely to be hugged, and pets live healthier lives when they are touched frequently and have a healthy coat and skin. Aside from keeping your pet smelling and looking attractive, grooming will help to prevent or impede such conditions as parasites and skin irritations. While grooming should be done on a consistent basis, the frequency to which your pet needs to be groomed will depend somewhat on daily routines, coat type, age and general health. It is recommended that long haired dogs be groomed every 6-8 weeks to avoid matting. In addition, your pet will benefit from regular brushing to remove any loose hairs and dead skin cells, to rid the coat of debris and external parasites, and to disseminate skin oils that form along the hair shafts. We can assist in recommending the proper tools to use for your pet's coat type. If your pet suffers from allergies, our veterinarian may prescribe regular bathing as part of the treatment routine. Be sure to notify us of any special needs your pet may require such as specific shampoos or eye care and bring any of these products with you to your appointment. Please schedule your pet's appointment in advance, especially during the warmer summer months and near the holiday seasons. We are happy to offer the following services to assist in the health and maintenance of your pet: - Grooming Services - Ear Cleaning - Wing and Nail Trims - Anal Gland Expressing - Cat Shave Down (Under Sedation) - Bathing - Coat Brushing - Soft Paws Application

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
