Dee Cee was very nice and seemed knowledgable. She gave me some things to work on with my dog. Time will tell if her advice was good or not.

I had an out of town emergency and I called last minute. Barbara got back to me within half an hour and was able to come over meet my dog Jj and set up pet sitting. A life saver! I use her weekly now for daytime walks when I work so I know my dog gets his exercise.

Angela was great; she got us out of a jamb with last minute cat sitting. She's personable and we felt like our kittens were left in good, responsible hands.

Doggie Bliss has walked our dog on weekdays for for several years. Not once has there been a problem. Not once. This is my dog's favorite part of the day- he has made new doggie friends and when we leave for work he goes to his favorite place by the window and waits. There is always an adorable note about the walk waiting for us when we get home from work so we know what happened on the walk. Every day. If you want a reliable, dependable, trustworthy, loving and valuable dog walking and pet sitting service, this is it.

Lisa has been walking and pet sitting my two dogs and two cats for five years. Her walks are always longer than the half hour I pay her for and my dogs come home well exercised and stimulated. When I'm not home, I trust her implicitly with my keys to my house and don't worry about a thing while I'm gone. When I'm away on vacation, the cats and dogs are so well taken care of, I couldn't ask for better. They are happy and content, even groomed. She texts me updates after each walk whether I'm home or away, will make runs to the pet store for me if I need it, will take the animals to the Vet or the park. Anything to do with pet care, she will do. I recommend Lisa's services for dog walking and all other pet care needs highly.

We are house sitting a dog for 6 weeks, and we needed immediate training as the dog had not been previously trained. Allison came over, helped me immensely, and we are on the road to good behavior! Allison will be available as our needs arise, but I highly recommend her for her knowledge, patience and guidance.

Robin has pet sat for all of our dogs and cats over the years. She loves and cares for them as if they were her own. When we return from vacation, we sometimes think our pets would rather have her stay longer than watch us come home, as they get daily massages and 24/7 attention in her presence. She is also a fantastic pet photographer and sends us photo updates during her stay at our home. She brings her own food and cleans the sheets and towels she uses before we return. She sometimes has other client jobs during our job, but she asks us ahead of time. Since the jobs are usually feeding a cat across town, which takes an hour or two, we don't have a problem with it. All of our pets are seniors that require medication on specific schedules. Robin is really good about taking care of geriatric animals (guinea pigs included), which allow us the peace of mind to leave for an important family event, one of us would not otherwise be able to attend.

I have a GSD with a serious case of separation anxiety. We got pet walkers to help and Jessie was one of them. Jessie was not afraid, took control, and my dog loves her. Jessie is prompt, will let you know if she notices anything wrong, and will make suggestions on food/training if you need help. She goes above and beyond - she helped search for my dog when sable escaped the vet/boarding kennel facility on her own time. I highly recommend Jessie's walking and overnight pet sitting.

Randi Schiffer is an incredibly compassionate gifted cat lover. Randi volunteered with my organization Kity Bungalow from 2011 through 2012. Aside from being in credibly responsible, it was clear early on that Randi had a gift. She often worked with our ill cats and understands what goes into supportive care. Randi is a true lover of animals and I couldn't recommend her higher for any pet sitting opportunities

To Whom it may concern: When I re-located to the Los Angeles area, one of my priorities was to find someone to pet-sit my Jack Russell Terrier, Maggie. Prior to moving, I had an ideal set up where Maggie could stay with a family, feel comfortable and loved, and be safe. I was able to find this ideal set up again with Jo-Jeanne. She is extremely reliable, professional, and I always felt I could leave Maggie with Jo-Jeanne and have a truly carefree vacation. I would highly recommend Jo-Jeanne for any petsitting/housesitting jobs. (She is also great with gardens and plants!!) Sincerely, Nancy Neal 818.330.9147

We were so worried about leaving our very sensitive dog and independent cat when we needed to be out of town for a week. It was truly a blessing to find Linda (Roo's Pet Sitting Service). She put our dog Bella at ease immediately, and even came to see us again a day beforehand to make our girl more comfortable with her presence before we left. She was able to charm our cat with no problem as well. Linda stayed overnight with our babies, provided their meals and ensured Bella had good long walks. Throughout our trip she texted us daily to let us know how our babies were doing. On top of that she took care of plants and mail at no extra charge. I would recommend Linda to anyone who wants good, loving and affordable care for their pets.

Kayla provided pet sitting for my 3 cats. She feed them and cleaned litter boxes daily for 12 days. She played and groomed them to the extent my cats would let her. She made sure my one cat that required medication got that daily. I would recommend her to others and use her again.

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!

We have a 3 1/2 year old cat that is new (2 weeks) to our family. The vet suggested that the cat stay home and not be boarded while we are on a short trip. George (Wiskers, Tails and Mail) was very understanding of our situation. He took excellent care of our cat and her new environment (litter box, feeding area, etc.). George also kept me informed on her activities while we were away. Utilizing the services of Wiskers, Tails and Mail was a huge relief during our time away. I highly recommend George and his company as they really provide more then pet sitting. They also supply peace of mind for the owner. P.S. I ran out of time to have the mail stopped and at the last minute George stepped into collect the mail on a daily basis. What a life saver! George and Lorna, thanks for everything!

Barbara was fantastic. Conscientious, capable and kind. She took care of a nineteen year-old cat that needed 4 types of medication and sub-cutaneous fluids twice a day. And our beloved cat actually gained weight!!! Plus walking and pampering two dogs. She sent us pictures and texts, staying in communication, and watered our plants and left the house in great shape. She's a responsible person who is home most of the time. Can't recommend her enough.

Lynn and Jared are absolutely WONDERFUL!!! They truly love animals and it really shows. We have used them for years now and each time we feel comfortable, confident and rest assured that our furry bunch will be well taken care of. We have 4 dogs and 4 cats and all of them love, love, love Lynn and Jared very much. They get a ton of love and attention and are all very happy and healthy upon our return. Lynn and Jared treat all of our pets as if they were their own. Other petsitters charge in 30-minute increments and only stay for the time you pay for. Lynn and Jared stay as long as needed to get everything done and to make sure everyone gets a lot of attention. They make sure the house is cleaner than they found it, which is truly appreciated. They clean the dog waste in the backyard and keep the litter boxes nice and clean. They leave detailed notes on each visit and what each pet was up to. They bring in the mail and take out the trash on trash day to keep up the appearance that people are still home. They do not charge extra for giving medication, getting the mail, watering plants, etc., as many others do. All of that is included in their already very reasonable prices. Their contractor Amanda is also WONDERFUL. She is very sweet and hard working as well. She has the same love for animals as Lynn and Jared, treating ours as if her own. Our animals all love her too. Amanda holds the same values, principles and hard work ethic that the owners have established as the foundation for their business and it really shows in her work and dedication. She also makes sure that the pets are happy and healthy and the house is clean and orderly. I couldn't thank all of them enough for everything they do for our furry bunch... and with 8 animals that is truly an amazing feat! I would highly recommend Truly TLC Pet Sitting.

Patricia stayed at our house for three weeks to care for our two dogs, Lola and Banjo. Since this was Patricia's first time with our dogs, she suggested coming over at least twice before our trip to get acquainted with our dogs. I thought that really showed her attentiveness and concern about our dogs. It also gave me an opportunity to observe how she acted with the dogs. Well, she was fantastic. Patricia is really sensitive to the dogs' temperaments and preferences. She gives them time to get comfortable with them. When we returned from our trip, it was the first time that the dogs weren't insanely excited to see us. Happy, but not overexcited. I attribute that to the fact that they were comfortable, well taken care of and got lots of attention from Patricia. Patricia followed all of our instructions to the letter. She was at our house all of the time. She took care of all of the dogs' medicine needs exactly as asked. You could not find a more responsive house/pet sitter than Patricia.

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.
