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.

Just like most of you reading this comment I was tired of having to put my two cats in boarding when I travel. I found P&P from my leasing office who said they were currently the go to pet sitters for our building. They were extremely professional, organized, and obviously love cats. Bingo and Price were totally relaxed upon my return unlike the normal I hate you showdown we usually have after boarding at the vet. I also loved the fact that they took the trash out and cleaned extremely well around the litterbox. I highly recommended their services.

    Alexis is spectacular with our older, shy dog. He always wags his tail and trots right up to her front door when its time to drop him off for boarding, instead of dragging his feet as he always did with other sitters! As a bonus, Alexis sends lots of great pictures of him--way better photos than any we've taken!

    Carol at Northwest Dog Retreat is truly exceptional. I adopted a small dog from an animal shelter and was extremely overwhelmed in the beginning when I first began to discover some of his behavioral issues. As a first time dog owner, I was unsure how to deal with his fears and also my own. I knew I was not equipped to train a dog with fears and aggressions on my own and I was thankful to have been able to find Carol at Northwest Dog Retreat. Carol really took the time to listen to me and my concerns, and with her knowledge, help and guidance, Bruno has totally turned around and is more outgoing and expressive than ever. She is caring, intuitive and truly has a special way with animals. She has given me tools, tips and support through out the process and I am so grateful to have met her! Not only does she help with behavioral training in her own home and well as public arenas, she has boarding and the retreat location is beautiful! Plenty of space for dogs to run and play and enjoy. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. Her true passion sets her apart from the others. Thank you Carol!

    David and Lois, Just wanted to say how much I appreciate your willingness to be flexible and helping me out with my 2 dogs, Lucky and Rufio. It is challenging for someone like me who does not have a set schedule to find reliable and reasonable pet sitters. Not only are you professional and conscientious but kind and patient, especially when dealing with a hyper little dog like Ruffy. Thank you so much for the daily follow up and keeping me informed. I feel I can trust you with my home and my pets, who are really more like my children, and I would recommend you to anyone who needs your services. Thanks again. Sincerely, Amy


    I specialize in private boarding, daily dog walks, kitty care and overnight sitting. I have been providing pet care services for over 5 years in Snohomish and King County and can customize a care plan for your loved one. Please contact me for further information.


    I love to work with pets and take care of them. I have a passion for any pet and making sure that they are taken care of and not abused. One day, I would like to open my own shelter for abused and neglected animals.


    I am a native of Washington, and I absolutely adore animals, especially dogs. My fascination and desire began in childhood, when my family had many types of dogs and were raising puppies and dog sitting, walking, bathing, playing, etc. Since then, I've been dedicated to owning my own dogs as an adult and supporting my friends and neighbors with walking, playing, and/or dog sitting their furry pals. I became a dog sitter/walker to help support people in their busy lives, and I desire to ease people's minds, so they will know and trust that their furry family friend is being well taken care of while they are away and getting the type of nurturing and healthy benefits their dogs so deserve and need.


    I have a passion for dogs. If you have a family pet that you would like to be exercised during your busy work week, call me!


    The reason I am doing this job is because I love animals, mainly dogs. It feels like a privilege for me to work in such a lovely job, but I also take my job seriously.


    I am trying to raise money to go to the camp next summer. I have been taking care of other people's animals for the last two years and have references. I can pet sit overnight at my house, come over after school to walk your dog and clean up pet messes.


    I will come to your home and walk, feed, pet, and love your animals when you can't. I am an animal lover. I enjoy being around animals.


    I am a retired nurse, and I have extra time now that I am no longer working. I have been taking care or several people's animals for a couple of years. I enjoy the work very much. I have a cat of my own, and when I did private nursing, most people have animals that needed care also.


    I am taking care of cats and dogs. I'm really good with pets! Like a few times, a dog came up to me, and he let me pet him. The owner was surprised because his dog never let anyone touch pet him/her.


    I am a licensed veterinary technician and have been pet sitting for over 5 years. I specialize in in-home pet sitting or visiting as much as needed. I have experience with all medical treatments, no matter what is needed, and also have experience in the emergency field, so I am prepared for anything that should happen. When I am taking care of my customers, they become my family for while you are gone and are treated like such. I also can take care of around-the-house tasks, such as watering plants, checking mail, taking out trash, etc. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.


    I love working with animals, and I have experience caring for many different types of pets. I'm looking for extra work and would love to help you out.


    I do it with hart and, honesty,integrity, and most of all I listen to what my customers want me to do

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
