Lori came to our Babe we are home to care for our two boys. She is a wonderful cat caregiver. I recommend her for pet sitting any time. She will send pictures and photos of your pets every day. That is so thoughtful of her.

They asked thorough questions about the pets and house. This service goes above and beyond pet sitting, with services like plant watering, trash, mail, lights, windows, music/tv for pets. It was great. Plus, I even got 2 texts and pictures per visit while we were on vacation. It's a bit expensive, but comparable when considering a boarding house or similar. Only a few dollars more for the pets to be in the comfort of their own home.

This was my first experience with a Pet Care Professional and a very pleasant one it was! I needed a Walker right away since i recently rescued a rascally little 7 month old mutt from the shelter that i named "Bobby" haha So i Immediately scheduled a initial consultation with Tommy right away because Bobby didn't like being alone and his high energy needed to be taken care of. Since i work 8-5 and don't get home till 6 to an overly energetic pup wanting to go for a walk as i slowly make my way into my apartment exhausted. I needed to remedy this asap. I had a very pleasant experience with tommy, he was very clear about what i needed and recommended the mid day walk. He connected with Bobby right away, something that took me a lot longer to do. Maybe its a boy thing. But he has been walking Bobby for almost a week and what a difference it has made. Bobby still meets me at the door, but he's so much more calm and things aren't torn up inside. I love the new Bobby even more, yay Thank you Tommy at Dog Walker Woof Woof!

I’m so glad I have found Trina to be my pet sitter. She is very reliable, trustworthy, and professional. I am a nurse and work 12 hour shifts 3 days a week so Trina comes to my house to take my little chihuahua potty, feed her, and keep her company. I know my little fur baby is in good hands while I am away and best of all, I know that I can trust Trina in my home. Not to mention her rates are amazing, especially when I leave on vacation! I always book her to spend the night at my house to pet sit and house sit! So awesome! I would recommend Trina to anyone. You won’t be disappointed!

I hired Karin to pet sit my 4 cats while I went on a family trip. When I met with her, she was very professional and I could see her love for animals right away. I enjoyed my trip so much more knowing that my babies were well taken care of and loved. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a great pet sitter! Victoria Braund

Nancy sat for my two cats for a week. One had just been diagnosed with diabetes and was not eating. Nancy went far above and beyond to get my sick baby to eat. Nancy introduced me to wholesome treats and different foods. I would not hesitate to call Nancy to sit for my pets. Thanks Nancy!

Courtney watched our 2 kitties for a week while we were out of town. We just recently moved to the area and were unable to find someone to watch our boys. Luckily we found Courtney on Thumbtack and really couldn't have asked for anyone better to take care of our little guys. She came over once a day to feed/play with them and always let me know when she was coming over and leaving. She sent us pictures and reassured us that they were doing just fine while we were away. We appreciate what a reliable pet sitter she was and will definitely be using her again in the future when we are out of town! We strongly recommend Courtney as pet sitter next time your in need! :)

In need of in-home care for my two dogs and cat while traveling for a week+, Laura stood out to me among the competition with a prompt, professional reply to my inquiry. Upon meeting her, I immediately hired her for the job and I fully trusted her in my home while I was away. Laura effortlessly managed all medical, dietary and exercise needs for each of my pets and sent text updates with photos to ease my mind. I returned home to both dogs and the cat as relaxed as could be whereas previous lodging experiences seem to have always caused unnecessary stress. With such great care at a reasonable price by someone who truly enjoys spending time with animals, I will absolutely be using Laura's pet sitting services again in the future.

We were really happy with our experience with Amanda. She met with us beforehand to go over all the details and was in contact with us daily while we were gone. It was very reassuring to know our pets were cared for while we were gone. She left a detailed form for each visit with information about the Pat's and what she did. We will definitely call Amanda next time we need pet sitting!

Lisa watched my 18 month old beagle sheperd mix & 2 beta fish while my family & I went on a 10 day trip. I was a bit concerned 'cuz I had never left my dog for that long... let alone, with someone I really didn't know. Nonetheless, Lisa did an AMAZING Job! She has a kind spirit and shows genuine concern for all animals. What I liked the most about Lisa's services was that she kept me up to date with how my pets were doing. I am really grateful I went to Lisa for my pet-sitting needs :-)

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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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.
