Desiree seemed genuinely interested in caring for my cat every day. She went above and beyond expectations of daily grooming, feeding, and cleaning the litter box by playing with him and sending videos. Not only is she professional, but she's friendly and trustworthy. I will definitely call on her to help me out with cat-sitting again.

Dani is knowledgable, dependable, and trustworthy! I'm so happy that this outstanding service exists in Sacramento. It's been so convenient to drop our puppy on the way to Tahoe and know he's in safe hands. I highly recommend this pet sitting service!!

Jeannette is AMAZING!!! She gave THE BEST care to all of our animals while we were on vacation and she went above and beyond to make sure that not only were our animals loved and cared for but that our house was safe and secure. She took out the trash, did a few dishes and even returned a Netflix movie we had left on the counter!!! I would HIGHLY recommend Jeannette for pet sitting and look forward to planning more vacations so we can use her again!

We were absolutely delighted with Roseann Farinacci of TenderCare Pet Sitting, who is hands-down the best petsitter we have ever had. We have a large dog (a 120# Doberman) who can definitely be a handful! (In addition, he has a stubborn foot injury which needs constant wound care.) We also have a cat, so we were looking for someone who could handle both, as well as look after our large home. Leaving all of that in the hands of someone you don't know can be nerve-racking, but we were quickly put at ease when we met Roseann, who is a wonderful, warm and caring person. Roseann was completely accessible to us both before and after our assignment. She came to our home to meet us and the "kids" for a get-acquainted session, then returned on a second occasion for "training." Our pets quickly took to her friendly personality and we felt very comfortable with her as well. While we were away, she was in constant touch with us, sending text messages and photos. We came home after 2 weeks out of the country to happy pets and a clean and well-cared for home. We cannot express how very comforting it was to know our pets and home were in Roseann's capable hands. We would DEFINITELY use her again and have appointed her our family's official "Auntie Roe". 10 stars for this outstanding pet and housesitter. Roseann is simply wonderful. Because of her, we had a great vacation knowing we had left our precious pets (and our house) in loving and experienced hands. We highly recommend her and are happy to discuss our experience with Roseann with anyone considering using her services. Mary Sanbrook and Simon Sahi

Emilia provides pet sitting for our very ornery cat, Lulu. She is reliable, communicative, and patient--very important characteristics when you're leaving your furry friends at home! We feel peace of mind that Lulu is being well taken care of while we're gone, and highly recommend Emilia to anyone needing pet sitting services.

Kelly arrived right on time. She observed the dog and sat next to the dog. Her observations were right-on. Her suggestions seemed probable to "conquer" my dog's problem. We arranged an hour's workout for next week. I feel confident in her. LAAG

We have been using Karen's services for quite awhile, from potty / dinner breaks to pet medications to house sitting. Our two dogs and two older cats are always well cared for and the house is tidy upon our return. We just booked Karen for a week this summer and I am always comfortable being away with her caring for our family. Karen is also very flexible in short notice arrangements and we have had no problems with her sservice. We have referred Karen to friends in the area as it's difficult finding someone of her caliber of care.

I have used Melinie to care for my 2 cats 3 times while I was out of town . She is extremely reliable, loves animals and goes way above and beyond anything I would expect/have experienced in a pet sitter. I would not hesitate to recommend her and welcome any inquiries.

If you want someone that will love and take good care of your pets while you are away Claire is the person for you. She is very good at her taking care of the pets. Her love for animals is amazing. I have recommended her to a few people at work and they have told me how much they enjoyed Claire and they have no problems going away because they will be hiring her again as they know there animals will be in good hands. So if you need a pet sitter who will give the care your pet like it deserves call Claire Terry

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.
