If you and your pets are lucky enough to get Megan Grinpas as your pet sitter you will thank me. My dog Griffin is more happy to see Meg than me! She is so professional, kind, full of love and joy. I never worried about Griffin when I was gone. I knew he was happy. She sent me a picture and an update every day. We really miss her, but I know she will find grateful owners like me. You will never worry about your pets. She is amazing.

Have you met Michele!?! Dexter's house is definitely a very pawsitive place for pets! I have never met anyone with such an obvious loving connection with her clients (puppies and parents alike). She is so wonderful to my babies! And such a great Schnauzer cut! I've met her two babies, Dexter and Morgan, and they are so happy. It is apparent how much love flows through Dexter house. Plus, you won't break the bank gettin you'd puppy a new dew. If you love your babies, go see Michele, I know she will!!!

Melinda is all we could ever ask for in a pet sitter and more! Not only is she very easy to communicate with but she treats our dogs like they are her own. We never have to worry about anything when we travel. Melinda moves right in when we need to head out and takes care of not only our dogs, but she also gets our mail, waters our plants and makes sure our property remains secure while we are gone. She is extra cautious of the food allergies that exist in our house as well. Whether our travel takes us to the other side of the world, the other side of the country, or just a couple hours away we know we can trust Melinda has things covered. The pictures and videos we receive from Melinda while we travel are an added plus, especially for a mom like me that has trouble leaving her “babies”. You also can’t beat coming home to a clean house and happy pets! Our two huskies can get a bit upset when they know we are leaving, but when Melinda comes over they are totally fine with us leaving. If she can handle our two crazy huskies I am sure she can handle anything!

Petcularly perfect does cat and house sitting for me. Allison is a great manager and Kate is a great siitter. I have two kitties and one is very shy. Kate does a great job at being sensitive to the issue. We work as a team to solve any issues and I am able to relax if I have to be away. They are a good group!

Our babies magnum and raleigh LOVED hanging out at Chez Paws! They are have boxer pups full of energy and they had the best time running around and playing with other doggies during the day! It was also great to have Laura sending us pics and videos of them having a great time; it put us at ease that we had chosen the right dog sitter and put our sappy missing our doggies feelings at bay! We will definitely be using posh paws in the future!

Rubi was great! She took care of our fur babies, 2 cats and 2 dogs for an extended weekend. Prices were fair and she spent quality time with all our animals. We received updates with pictures each time she went over and we came home to happy pets and a clean house! Strongly recommend :)

What can I say about Annie. My four boxer girls are absolutely in love with her. At the mere mention of Annie's name they are at the garage waiting for her arrival every morning. Whether my boxer girls are being walked or Annie is sitting with them I know that they are safe and secure. I would recommend Annie in a heartbeat to anyone. Annie he is not just a dog walker or a sitter she is much more. The care, compassion and love that she has for my boxer girls is amazing. My boxer girls deserve the best and Annie is the best!!

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!

Mandy looked after our 2 cats while we went to visit family for 5 days and she was AWESOME! First of all she was very punctual, and super easy to communicate with which made it easy to make the last minute arragements. Second, yet most important, she was GREAT with the cats! One of our cats is very attached and would get really worried and depressed when we would leave, and the other one is very shy and usually hides around strangers, but not this time! They were both happy as can be!! She later described a few things about the cats that she wouldn't have known unless she was spending quality time with them and that I know our cats wouldn't do unless they were comfortable and trusting of her. Mandy just has a very easy going, calming and kind personality that really put both the cats and myself at ease. She also managed to send us regular updates, even though it was nearly impossible to reach us where we were. She sent some photos as well, and I could just tell the cats were 100% content. It was so great not having to worry! We will definitely be calling her again since now I can actually look forward to our next trips rather than dreading having to leave my favorite fuzz balls with someone. Oh, and on top of all that she kept the house super tidy and clean(I think even better than when we left). So without a doubt, I would recommend Mandy to anyone and everyone who is looking for a pet sitter they can trust. Thanks again Mandy!!!

“ Amy has been dog sitting and housesitting for us almost two years, and she does a wonderful job. Our dog Bristol, 15 years old, requires special care. He is a mixed breed with a very shaggy coat that needs a lot of brushing, and he can’t see or hear very well. Amy gives him the special attention and slow walks he needs. Our other dog, Lola, is a Boston Terrier, full of energy but with dietary restrictions. She loves to play tug of war with Amy. Both of them are always very happy to see Amy. The texts and photos of our dogs while we are away help us keep in touch. And when we return from our trips, the house seems cleaner than when we left! No one will be disappointed with Amy’s professional services. — Cheryl N

Wes is wonderful! Dependable and trustworthy. He's been house and kitty sitting for us for the past two years. I always come home to a house just as I left it (but better), and a very happy kitty! I obviously trust him with my entire home, and pet. I recommend Wes for a very sweet and nurturing pet sitter!

We hired Zach to take care of our fur babies since we were heading out of town for the weekend. Zach did an amazing job and we'd definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an overnight companion or a pet sitter. Our girls loved having Zach around as well. Thanks again, Zach! You are awesome

I have 4 purry furry cats aging from 6 to 16 years old. I hate going away because I always think my babies are going to fall victim to something horrible and I won't be there for them. They all have different personalities and needs that require a personal touch. My youngest has to play a while each day or she will try to turn my nervous and timid Calico Manx into a confetti colored chew toy. Bunny, the Manx, has issues with her stomach and has a special diet. When she is spooked she pees, that is something I want checked by someone knowledgeable about cats. My boy cat had kidney surgery last summer and it's necessary to make sure he isn’t having pain or appetite issues. Our eldest cat conscripts the others into shenanigans and this often means we come home to find that she has discovered a food we didn’t know was available and made it into a buffet. She is small, looks innocent, but is wily with a plan in the works every moment. These are the reasons I can't just drop and go, I need to know they are cared for or I can't enjoy my time away. I am afraid they will change the locks and rule the roost if we don’t feed them routinely. I can’t take the chance the freeloaders won’t get into trouble if left alone or to the care of someone who just comes by to fill their dishes. Lori gave me the best price quote on Thumbtack and had a great conversation with me via messages making my selection easy. She arrived at our home and met with my husband and furries to go over our routine and meet each of our cats a few days before we left. She was well loved by our more social kitties and my husband said she had great vibes. Good vibes is important to me because I want someone who is compassionate taking care of my babies. While we were away Lori came 3 times a day to feed, play, and clean their box. After every visit she sent me a photo and a status update. She replied promptly when I had comments or questions leaving me feeling like everything was under control. It meant everything to me to hear her tell me what she had experienced in each visit because she was caring for what is most important in my life: my family. When I arrived home there was a note from her with a kind message about her enjoyment in caring for my cats, saying how beautiful and sweet they are (they had her fooled because she didn’t mention sly and devious). Our big Angora was so soft when we came home I was convinced she had spent most of her visits petting him. He confirmed this suspicion when he kept by the door waiting for her to return rather than joining me for Mommytime. The cost of our sitting and care was cheap in my opinion. It was obvious that Lori and Pawprints aren’t trying to take advantage of our need for a sitter by trying to nickel and dime us. Some of the quotes I received for caring for my cats was astronomical for 3 days, one was over $400 for 9 visits. Our entire weekend of Lori’s incredible care cost us only $175. Before we moved we had a fantastic sitter who was comparable in care fees and care quality we just received from Pawprints. We are truly blessed to have found Lori, as we were to find Ashley previously. I will be using Pawprints service in the future and I feel so much more confident to go places knowing Lori will be caring for my babies.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts 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.

    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.
