Joyce was very thorough and considerate. She has a good understanding of pet care and was very responsive while we were traveling. Our cat seemed happy when we returned, which isn't always the case when we've used other sitters in the past. Thanks Joyce!

I initially used this company for a last-minute service over Thanksgiving (the other sitter I had lined up canceled last-minute). I was totally thrilled with the quick response as well as the quality of service Kelly provided. So happy that I used them again for Xmas! I would recommend these sitters any day -- they deliver above and beyond expectations!

Erika takes excellent care of my cats. She always sends pictures or videos and status updates when she is watching them. They seem happier and calmer when I get home than they have when I used other cat sitters. She follows care instructions well, is very easy to schedule with and her rates are competitive. She's clearly an animal lover!

Christina was amazing cat sitter for us. She checked in on Merlin once every couple of days while we were out on a week long vacation. She not only followed every instruction we left her, but also went out of her way to bond with our cat and keep him company (and trust me our cat is not the easiest to bond with). She knowledgeable and confident around pets. I will definitely be checking if she is available next time we need a pet sitter.

Kristen was warm and welcoming when I arrived for my first lesson. For my second lesson, she made sure I did not go beyond my abilities for the day. I am looking forward to learning more from her and gaining more experience on how to properly ride a horse. Thanks Kristen. :) Fran B.

Flora is a great cat sitter -- I trust her completely to take good care of my 14 year old cats that are starting to have health problems. She spends quality time with them when coming to feed them and makes sure to provide play time and petting time.

Verified review

Our 10 year old daughter Ella has been riding with Kate for about 2 years. We cannot say enough about how wonderful Kate is for Ella and all of the other kids at the barn. She builds their self-confidence, their leadership skills, and has high expectations of them...all in a low pressure environment which is an usual magical combination. It goes with our saying that Kate's riding is exceptional and her dedication to all things equestrian is superlative. She trains Ella to ride her best, every ride, but somehow manages to make the hard work FUN. She pushes Ella and the kids to be their best and they are eager to please her and make her proud. And in turn, she helps them be proud of their accomplishments. Last Summer we bought a horse for Ella - we didn't know where to begin. Kate helped us every step of the way to get the absolute right match for Ella. A few months later when Ella developed some fears, Kate worked with Ella to overcome her fears and develop as a stronger rider. Kate works tirelessly, night and day, at the barn for the kids and the horses. The kids all want to hang around and watch Kate instruct the other kids because they learn so much just by watching. Sometimes Kate will bring in experts for specific clinics and this has always been a huge learning experience for the kids. Kate also organizes many fun shows so the kids can get a taste of riding competitively. And as if this is not enough, in Jan 2017, Kate gave Ella the riding goals they had written down for 2017...we were so pleased that, with Kate's guidance, Ella achieved every one of them. I can't say enough about this amazing young woman and how fortunate we feel to have her influence and presence in our daughter's life. She is an all-around, phenomenal role model for kids.

I hightly recommend Tina to anyone looking for a loyal, caring, flexible and consistent dog sitter/walker/caregiver. Tina was my lifeline when it came to helping with my girls. Whether it was daily visits while I was at the office or extended home stays while I was traveling, I could always count on Tina! We were very sad to say goodbye when it was time to move back to Chicago.

Jody was the best cat sitter I could ever have asked for! She came twice a day to feed my kitten and spent a lot of time playing with her everyday. Her price was the best for the quality of care she provided. I highly recommend her to everyone

Pam took excellent care of our 3 dogs: she walked, fed, brushed them and administered eye drops to one of them. She also demonstrated initiative in the house and kept in touch with me the whole time. I highly recommend her as a dog sitter and will definitely use her services again in the future. She is a trustworthy person, her prices are reasonable and I am glad I found her on Thumbtack!

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.

Lisa Robinson is a dedicated horse woman. She is clear in her directions and her love for the animals shines through. I have known her for many years....close to 20 ....she broke one of my horses and did a fine job being gentle and kind. I injured my dominant hand and she comes out to exercise my horses....just watching her with my 2 horses teaches me lots. She is able to teach children and old ladies alike.....come on out and give her a try.

Jenny is great with our dogs and made friends immediately with the one that is skittish! Jenny is very solid and reliable and also cleans the house when she leaves... nice to come home to a clean house and happy dogs after a trip☺ Jenny is very customer focused and told us she would do any special things at the house if we wanted . She walks the dogs and stays with them longer than most sitters during the day. We love Jenny and the dogs love her too!

    Candace was a house/cat sitter. She was very good. The house and cat were in wonderful shape when I returned. She understood the directions and was quite competent. She was quite expensive however.

    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.
