Our dogs love Susie!  We wanted to send a quick message to let you and others know how pleased we are when you watch Rally and Bear when we are away!  You are such a natural and show great concern and care for fur babies!  We have had Sue watch for our dogs several times and have been very happy with the loving service she provides.  We just can't put a price on our pets being so well cared for and being together while we are gone!  We will definitely use your service in the future!  ~Michele & Kevin

My 3 dogs look and smell great after getting groomed here. One of my dogs is part Schnauzer and we always get him a schnauzer cut, which isn't easy to do, I've been told. She did outstanding. I also have a yorkie who was dealing with an injury and she was able to work with him. After a bad experience at PetCo and having visited multiple dog grooming facilities, I am beyond pleased and satisfied with my experience at Deja Vu's K-9 Corner. I will be going back to get my dogs groomed here.

Great service! Cindy takes great care of our puppy, and send us pictures of phoebe via text to show us that she's happy and healty before Cindy leaves. She has been very helpful even on short notice. I would highly recommend her services to anyone in need of a pet-sitter.


I will give your best friend the care that they desire and more. You let me know what they like, and I take care of the rest.


I love all pets, especially dogs. I would love to care for your pets when you go on vacation, or if you just need someone to look in on your pet while you are at work. I am very active and would also love to walk your dog. I believe that a well-exercised dog is a happier and healthier pet.


I'm able to handle all pets. I will do anything I need to for them, and I don't mind cleaning up after them.

I am what I guess you'd call a "one man band". When you hire me, you get ME every visit meaning I am the only person with your key and I make the visits personally. Some services have different employees coming and going in and out of your home or apt. I certainly would not like that at all. I do have 2 extremely reliable people as backup in the unlikely event I would become ill while you are away.


I offer dog walking and pet sitting. I will travel to your home to care for your pets. I'm available nights and weekends.


I take care of other people's pets, and I help others out when they need a pet sitter. I watch and walk dogs. I also work on farms with horses.


I can walk dogs, cats and any animals that need company. I am able to clean and sanitize animal areas.


I love animals of all kinds! I have had four dogs in my life and grew up respecting and enjoying animals. I would love to take care of yours! I have taken my dogs for walks and runs. I feed them twice a day and give them lots of attention!


Because since I was a baby I have grown up around animals. I have a deep passion to work them.


I offer doggy nanny 911 services, as follows: training/communication, pet sitting, dog walking, boarding and grooming. I provide customized pet care that fits in your budget

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.
