Leashed Seattle set up Milo and I ASAP and got Milo out for his potty breaks the very next day. The GPS Service really is a lot of fun and has really cute footprints. They really do care about you and your pet and will do everything they can for you.

It's obvious CeCe loves dogs and made sure ours was treated like one of her own. This was what we were looking for. Didn't want our pet in some doggie prison.

This was our first time with a pet sitter. We was really worried. Brandie reassured us and kept her word of sending pictures of our animals-even the lizard-to us every day. We are very impressed and will definitely use her again!

I am 110% satisfied with Vivians care of my pets while I was on vacation! She was courteous, punctual, reliable, obviously knowledgeable and just a real sweetheart! My pups and I liked her immediately! She even got my "shy" dog to actually leave the yard and go for a walk! I haven't been able to get her to willingly do that! Thank you, Vivian! She sent me periodic status updates and pictures! When I got home she took time to "educate" me on some techniques for continuing the training she had done with my shy dog and she will be coming back for further training sessions! I am grateful I found Vivian and will highly recommend her to friends and family! Thank you Vivian from me and Autumn, and Summer, and Dinah!

Tonya is pretty quick in responsiveness. I really appreciate that quality in person / business. I wasn't exactly clear or prompt with my specific needs and reply's. But she very kind and patient with me. As soon as my moms dog us groomed I will be back to review on the work Shaggy Shack will be doing.

    Whit is truly a dog whisperer, but really she's talented with all animals! She considers them her "patients", and has the best of the best bed side manners. We still call on her for any questions and concerns we have with our pets, and can't wait for her to house sit for us again :) Thanks Whit for all you do.


    I love animals and am helping them to be happy and safe. I have been a volunteer for the King County Animal Shelter. I have two dogs and one cat that are spoiled rotten. I am responsible and dependable. I am close to retirement and would love to help folks out.


    I am a student, so I am always looking for extra work that does not interfere with school. I started just doing this work for family members when they left town and then the word got out and began doing it for family friends and so on.


    I am available and qualified to clean houses and nanny children (CPR/first aid certified). I love animals and am available to sit your animals while you're away or just walk them while you're busy at work.


    I will take care of any animal of any size for as long as needed. I do not have a vehicle so my customers need to bring the pet(s) to me. I have the best care around!


    I watch and walk pets. I'm very good at it. I watch all kinds of animals. I'm very good with dogs and other animals in general.


    I am willing to travel to you and make sure your pets are taken care of. I will walk, feed, play with and even groom your pets.

    I have always loved animals my whole life. I have never not had a pet such as dogs, cats, chickens, horses, a bunny, fish etc. Taking care of animals is practically in my nature.

    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.
