I hired Shelley for cat sitting. It was on short notice, but she was very quick to respond and meet up to go over instructions. I was gone for almost a week, but Shelley was great with providing video and picture updates. When we got back home, was just as we left it and my cat barely even noticed we left :) Overall, my experience was great. I can't recommend Shelley enough, she was fantastic!

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.

Erika is an EXCELLENT pet sitter!! She is extremely responsive, responsible, thoughtful and caring. Erika impressed us immediately at our first meeting- she was thorough in learning about what our cats' wants and needs, personalities and proclivities. For each visit, Erika sends us short videos of our cats; which gives us peace of mind. She is very quick to respond to our requests, even if its short notice. Erika even arranged for a reliable, vetted sub when she was out of town, and we needed cat sitting. We feel very fortunate to have found Erika to take care of our beloved kitties. We highly recommend her!!!

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!

Mary is our full time dog walker, she comes daily to our home during the week and also does overnight stays when we go away. Our dog Beau simply loves Mary (and we do too, of course). Beau literally jumps with excitement every time Mary comes over and practically licks her to death. Mary is dependable, caring beyond belief and knows all about Beau and his personality. She keeps us well informed about anything she notices with him gives us great advice if we are dealing with any "doggie issues". We are lucky beyond measure to have her in our lives and highly recommend her for regular dog walking or pet sitting.

We got so lucky finding Jody! Jody did an amazing job taking care of our kitty and house for 5 days while we were out of state. She checked in daily per request, and sent me photos of my cat throughout our absence. I did not have to worry about my cat being lonely or getting anxious because Jody slept over and kept my cat at ease by sticking to our usual schedule and giving him lots of love. When we came home our cat was not frazzled or anxious, which was our previous experience when we'd leave for long periods of time. We joke that our cat misses Jody and look forward to hiring her again when we plan our next trip!

I tried Pam for the first time and she was great! She took care of my elderly cat while I left for a week long vacation. She gave me regular updates when she visited so I didn't have to worry about my furry friend one bit.

I have been using A Pet's Paradise service for over 8 years. They are very reliable and my pets are always well cared for. There is excellent communication, before, during (if need be) and after each pet sit. I never worry about my pets when I'm away because I know they will receive the excellent care they deserve. I highly recommend a Pet's Paradise service.

This was our first time using Precious Fur (or any pet sitting service) to watch our 2 kitties, and we were amazed beyond our expectations for how wonderful they were with them. We were out of town for just over a week, and towards the end of our vacation, one of our kitties had an unexpected medical emergency. Jessica noticed right away that he wasn't feeling very well and was able to get him into the pet hospital that same evening to be treated. She dispensed his pain killers and made sure he was hydrating, eating, and was comfortable for the last few days we were away. We came home to kitties who were extremely happy, even after the medical emergency and disruption in their usual routine. We will definitely be using Precious Fur again and would recommend Jessica and Craig to anyone looking for a pet sitter. The care and love they showed our babies was beyond what we were expecting. They treated them like their own little family, and it makes the anxiety of leaving them when we are out of town a bit easier.

Kimberly made sure my house was clean and free of the inevitable pet fur that accumulates when you have dog. She made sure everything was in its place and even took care to put away the laundry and dishes. I hope she is available the next time I need a cleaning. Thank you Kimberly

Anne is fabulous. She is dependable and super flexible with our schedule. I would highly recommend Anne for all your pet sitting needs. Our fur baby LOVES Anne. She is always so happy to see her which makes us feel great. Anne has also taken care of her when we were away. It gives us such a peace of mind knowing our girl is so well taken cared of. Anne is great. She is loving, sweet and loves the animals that are in her care. She is our go to person and we love having her take care of our precious girl. You will not go wrong with Anne.

I recently had to go out of town and my regular pet sitter decided to double her rates two days before. So I went searching for a new pet sitter and I found ElizaPets on Nextdoor and I am so very glad I did. My sweet cat became very sick the very first day I left. Elizabeth went above and beyond taking Beimer to her regular vet and then on to Sage (where if you've been there you know you wait for hours to be seen) where we found that Beimer has kidney cancer. Elizabeth help guide me though the whole process long distance with the vets, their diagnosis and treatment options. She then spent time with Beimer, sitting with her in the sun (Beimer loves sitting in the sun), and never once complained nor asked for addition payment. The first pet sitter only spent 10 minutes of her time when she came to care for Beimer. I'm grateful I found and hired Elizabeth. I highly recommend ElizaPets! Thank you Elizabeth!

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.
