I have known Cathy Rice for many years and have had her dog sit for my two Golden Retrievers. Cathy has a gentle manner with our dogs, and gives them the attention they need while I am away. My dogs have been well cared for in my absence. Cathy has a friendly personality and is very flexible with her schedule. I would highly recommend her for your pet sitting needs.

Elizabeth and Steven did a phenomenal job taking care of our 14 week old labradoodle Monty and our 7 year old Jack Russell Terrier Cooper. Because of Monty's age they stayed in our home which was not something we were initially comfortable with until we met Elizabeth. She immediately put us at ease with her professionalism and friendly nature. While the dogs were under their care we received consistent updates on what they were up to. We had a change of schedule and they were incredibly accommodating. Before they left they changed out sheets, cleaned up and left a really nice note...from the dogs. I would highly recommend Pawsitively Purrfect to anyone who needs pet sitting.

Christina was awesome. She kept me updated on my cat Barney during my entire vacation. I knew what he was up to, I received pictures every day and for the first time, I was not worried about my pet while I was traveling! My cat was happy and balanced when we came back. Couldn’t have been any better!

Amy is amazing! In just three sessions we have seen improvement with our crazy fur baby! She knows so much about dogs, people, + how we should be interacting so that we create an environment of respect and understanding. Amy’s style of instruction is such that she assessed and corrected both myself and the dog while not being patronizing towards us. Maui (the dog) responded to Amy positively and was not frightened in the process which is something I looked for while hiring a dog trainer. We didn’t want someone who bullied us or our animal. Amy and I talked a lot about her experience with other animals and she can do some pretty amazing stuff with even the most stubborn, aggressive, and/or problematic animals. Because I was so hesitant to hire a trainer in the beginning I needed to write a wonderful review for Amy because I’m so grateful for our experience with her. If you’re having any doubts at all, go with Amy. She’s also willing to drive a seriously impressive distance to work with her clients. She also offers dog sitting and boarding. All-in-one dog care with someone you can most definitely trust. Thank you so much Amy for everything you have done for our family. We’re still over hear practicing and watching Maui improve every day!

The first time I met Laura I knew she was a huge animal lover. My sheltie, Charlie, is usually reserved around people he doesn't know, but he took to Laura immediately. In fact, he couldn't wait for Laura to take him on his daily walks - whenever she arrived, he would be at the door ready to go. Charlie also liked to go to Laura's house for pet sitting. I felt very comfortable leaving Charlie at Laura's house because the other dogs she was sitting for were always friendly and never aggressive toward Charlie or toward each other. I highly, highly, recommend Laura Tait for all of her pet services - she's a real gem.

Phoebe did an amazing job cat sitting. She provided regular updates and pictures that put me at ease. We met beforehand, and she was very thorough with her questions on cat care. While I was away, there was ant problem (for the very first time). She went out of her way to clear the issue with twice-a-day visits and regular phone calls; she ensured that the issue did not affect the cat food and water. My cat tends to be shy (she was homeless before I adopted her), but Phoebe was able to bond with her during the week. I highly recommend her and already have plans to use her services in the future!

I have known Evie Werner for over 5 years now and have used both her pet sitting/walking and organizing services. Evie is the biggest animal lover I have ever know and would do (and has!) done most anything to spare an animal. Her organization skills are exceptional and no matter what the job, Evie can get it done. I highly recommend Evie Werner and commend her for her patience and love of animals and her work ethic in dealing with other people's possessions.

We've had Gina house-sit and stay with our precious Shih Tzus for years. She is absolutely dedicated to loving and caring for animals. She is experienced in giving medications, when necessary and our girls love her. I never worry about a thing when we travel. We've been gone as long as two weeks, and Gina is professional in every way. I highly recommend Gina for pet-sitting, dog walking, or any job related to your precious pets.

Melissa is the only person I trust with my pet sitting needs. She is professional yet caring and compassionate. She has been able to be flexible and works around my crazy travel schedule without a complaint. The best part is that my dog loves when Melissa is walking him or pet sitting.... it's like having his favorite aunt coming to visit him!

Julie is the best with our spoiled dogs. We recently added a new puppy and Julie is the only one we will trust with her. If it weren't for Julie we wouldn't go on vacation or take weekend trips. Julie is also very responsible with other household tasks, such as mail, cleaning linens after her stay, and watering plants, all without being asked to do so. We love Julie and highly recommend her. She's become part of our family. She's been with us for approximately 3.5 years.

About

I am a true animal lover at heart and have had several in my life. I have had dogs, cats, birds, tortoise, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, mice, ducks, rabbits and a gecko. I have also done some animal rehabilitation such as raccoons, squirrels, ducks, birds, bunnies and kittens; and volunteered at the local zoo caring for and feeding exotic animals. I enjoy caring for them, playing with them, and walking them. I'm unable to have pets where I currently live and would love the opportunity to pet sit your furry friend.

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.
