    Natalie has grommed both my rambunctious male pit bulls (no easy chore) and a small mixed pup (who has since passed) with uncanny patients. My boys love to see Natalie. No less a day grommer, but a day spa. She has great attention to detail, caring, gental, and above all has a spectacular love for all animals. If you are in need of a grommer, she is the one you should see. If you already have a groomer, you should switch and see her immediately. As a pet owner, you do not cut corners for your fury family member, you give them the best of everything. Do not look any further and make an appointment.

    Excellent, professional, and reliable! The team at Woof N Wag is so amazing and loving. I feel so at ease when going out of town, knowing my dog is in great hands.

    Erica was absolutely wonderful! She came to meet my cat before I had to leave, and immediately put me at ease about leaving my fur baby for a week. She sent me regular updates and photos to show me he was doing fine while I was away. Since I was gone on an exhausting work trip, this made me feel so much better about things at home. And I know my cat loved her too! He loves anyone who will take time to throw his ball for him. She didn't just come in and feed him and clean his box, she spent time with him and comforted him while I was gone. I'm so grateful to have found such a fantastic pet sitter!

    I'm a great dog sitter. I have two dogs of my own, and I have a great neighborhood. I go to school from 7:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.


    I provide the best of two worlds. I pet sit along with house sitting as well as clean the same home for you while you don't need your fur babies or home cared for. I have experience pet sitting, boarding and home sitting as well as cleaning services. I've been running my pet and home sitting from rover and have decided to combine them and offer more of what I love doing in one place. Thank you for your interest!

    I've always been an animal person since I could remember. I find and take in street and abandoned animals. I care for them until my parents would catch me and make me give them away.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How much does it cost to hire a house sitter?

    House-sitting can be a lifesaver when you’re leaving town for any length of time. Whether you work remotely, you’re taking a much-needed vacation, or you just want to road-trip for a few days, it’s wise to have a pro keep an eye on your house and pets while you’re gone. Your home is more likely to stay safe and you won’t have to wrangle the kitty into a kennel to travel with you. The national average pet-sitting price ranges between $20 and $30. Pet-sitting and house-sitting costs will vary based on where you live in the country and regional labor rates. Another factor in cost is how long you want the house-sitter to stay. Some people prefer to have the house-sitter stay the night at their house, perhaps to care for an elderly pet or simply to keep a watchful eye on the home at all times. Overnight stays will cost more, ranging anywhere from $50 to $100, depending on services provided. For day visits, house-sitting and pet-sitting prices will increase incrementally the longer the visit and the more service you want performed. For example, a quick 10-minute visit to feed and walk the pet and bring in the mail could be $12.50, a 25-minute visit could be $18, a 40-minute visit $25, and a 50-minute visit $32.

    How much should you pay for a pet sitter?

    Pet sitting provides your precious pet with in-home care. A pet-sitter can make a brief visit during the day to provide snacks, playtime or affection, or stay at your house for one or more nights to tend to your pet. Prices for pet-sitting will vary based on length of the visit. Nationally, pet sitting prices range from $20 to $30, although prices run higher for your sitter to stay the night. Prices will also be affected by where you live in the country. Here are some examples of average pet-sitting prices based on length of time and region:

    • 30-minute visit: $17 in a small Texas town.
    • 30-minute visit: $25 in Southern California.
      • 45-minute visit: $28.
      • 60-minute visit: $32.
    • Overnight stay (10 hours): $50 in Texas.
    • Overnight stay (10 hours): $85 in Southern California.
      • 12 hours: $100.
      • 24 hours: $200. This is a good option for a sick, elderly or brand-new pet that needs constant supervision.
