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.

Just Four Paws, Inc., is an exceptionally professional, punctual and responsive pet-sitting service, arranging for introductory and hour-long visits in less than 24 hours with consideration of my dog's personality and reluctance to meet strangers. I will certainly hire them again.

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.

I can't say enough good things about Dexter's House. If you're like us and don't want to leave your pup in a kennel with little personal attention, check out Dexter's House where your pup is made to feel at home. We think it's more like sending your pet to camp or a sleep over than locked up when they just can't come with you.

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.

Maureen was very responsive to texts/calls/emails. She made sure to address the individual needs of my family/pet. She packed in so much information into just one session and provided us with some unexpected extras. We have already seen an improvement in our puppy's behavior after one session. I love her positive approach to modifying behavior. She was also super patient with us (first time dog parents). We had some very basic questions but she spent extra time with us to make sure we were set before she left. Will definitely use her again and refer friends in need of doggy help.

I feel very confident allowing Peticularly Perfect in our home, and to take care of our prized possessions--our dogs. After finding them on Thumbtack, will not look any further for our dog sitting needs.

Annie is like the dog whisperer! I have 3 fur babies and they all love her! She comes to my home to visit and let my puppies out to play when I am at work. Besides being trustworthy she is very knowledgable and is always making sure she is looking over your pet for signs of, well, anything. I highly recommend Annie and her bright and cheerful can do attitude. Annie has come to my aid at the drop of a hat ... can't say that about most folks these days but saved me big time! Oakley by the way is avery well behaved dog and a lover to boot! He is also nothing but kind to my dogs. A win win duet! SJ Luke

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!

Wiggly Tail took care of my cat Jewels all last year when I lived in San Diego. My cat Jewels has kidney disease and I felt so comfortable leaving her in the care of Paulina. She took excellent care of her; she kept me informed of how she was doing on a regular basis; did anything extra I asked her to do for Jewels with no hesitation. I wish I could have taken Wiggly Tail with me when I moved to FL. I highly recommend this pet care giver.

Ellen has been so great! My pets liked her immediately and didn't even bark at her. She takes my dog to the park for walks and visits with my cats. She has never missed a visit and she goes above and beyond her duties. If there is an accident, she handles it. She feeds everyone and takes care of the litter and even leaves me a log of what she has done for the day. She took out my trash and brought in my mail while I was gone and she is very trustworthy. I hope to have a long pet sitting relationship with her and our family :)

I am an energetic and loving pet care provider. I love all dogs, and I also do housecleaning services. I have 2 years of experience in cleaning bathrooms at a Seattle based university. I'd love to make your home a happier, cleaner place for you to live in or take your dog for a walk when your busy schedule doesn't allow you to.

I also offer dog park outings, house sitting, pooper scooper services, supplies shopping, and pet taxi. My visits start at just $10. It is important to me that your pets get the care and attention that they need, and I am willing to work with you, so that this is affordable. I promise to love your pets like I do my own. I am also licensed, bonded, and insured.

About

Hi there. I have been doing pet sitting and babysitting, working as a nanny for nine years. I love working with animals and children. I also have experience working for a professional pet sitting service, and four years of experience working in group child care. I have units in Child Development and Sociology studies. Thank you.

About

I walk dogs and sit them whenever my close friend goes out of town, and she goes out of town a lot. She has a pit bull, so I am pretty good with all dogs. I don't own any.

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.
