The message boards listed have been chosen because they have a continuing reputation of being moderated, and encourage professionalism in the industry.   The boards listed above have a history of being a safe haven for ideas, debates, stories, tools, and sharing.   These boards generally do not compete against each other, and discourage unethical behaviors such as slander and personal attacks against members, non-members, other boards, and other businesses & industries. 

Each board has it's own style, so we recommend you try out a few and find the one that fits your business best.  You will probably find that that style changes as you grow more confidence in your business, so you may want to check back with the other groups periodically.   Contents of this list are updated periodically.

If you would like to suggest we add your moderated Pet Sitting message board or Dog Walking to this list, please email
