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.

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.

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.

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.

We have had Melinda care for our older and special needs dogs. We feel much more comfortable with her staying at our home so our dogs get undivided 24 hr care. Our dogs require medication on a regular basis and we can count on her to do this without any concern. As our oldest setter is 13, her day to day needs can change and Melinda is aware of this and will make sure she gets the needed help and attention. We would never be able to leave our dogs without this great care. Also, we have asked Melinda to come in the evenings to walk our younger dog. She will also come for a 2-3 hour pet sitting need. She keeps us informed about our dogs and sends pictures. She also does extra things like watering plants, dishes and things we don’t really expect but it sure is nice! I would recommend Melinda, you will have peace of mind when you are away.

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.

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.

Couldn't be more thrilled. Was leaving my puppy for the first time in someone else's care was of course a little nerve wracking. Alicia could not have made it easier. Wonderful with animals, super communicative and flexible. Thanks Alicia!

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!

Dale is an all around great human being. She adores animals and is so responsible and caring. I left my home and beloved dog in her hands for several weeks and I was so at peace while I was away knowing she was taking care of things while I was gone. I highly recommend her for pet + house sitting. She is amazing!

I felt totally comfortable leaving my pets with Eva! I knew they were in good hands and with her knowledge about pet health (because of her career) put my mind even more at ease. I got pictures and text updates along the way which was awesome! My kittens love her! Definitely will be a repeat customer!! I don't think you'll find a person who loves cats more than her, even cats who don't belong to her :)

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!

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.
