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.

Laura brought a much needed personal touch to the training of our dog. Behavior modification - Coco no longer has that wild and crazy uncontrolled energy she had before training. Children are no longer afraid to pet her and my 9yr old is no longer her chew toy😆. She comes when you call, respond quickly when chastised and walking her is a joy!!

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.

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!

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.

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!

I highly recommend Aisha! She has done outstanding work last year with my 3 month old male dobie. The board and train option was the perfect choice to develop Bodhi into a well-mannered and confident puppy! She truly cares about both you and your pet by teaching you how to become a strong leader for your pet. As Bodhi grows up, I know I have the knowledge and tools that Aisha provides to ensure his continued growth and maturity into adulthood and an important member of society! Thank you Aisha!!!

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.
