Heather is excellent! she is 100% accountable, professional, trustworthy, punctual, flexible, caring and my puppy loves her! She sends me updates on how he is during the day, photos of playtime and has even taken him to the vet when he got a bit sick from too much rawhide. She was exactly what i was looking for in a dog sitter and i can say after 2 months - i'd be lost without her:) Thank you Heather! love Laura and Spike

I contacted Karen last year to take care of my cat Bryan while we were away in Peru for 2 weeks during the holidays. Karen was able to accomodate specific instructions concerning bryan and even went out of her way to give me an affordable price for a twice a day visit. I was initially impressed with how thorough Karen was! She has a professional form to fill out so you can put all of the specific details about your pet and their care on paper. This was particularly helpful for me since I wanted to make sure all of the details about Bryan were outlined. The form even includes a section so you can put any other items beyond pet care that you may require while away. I needed the mail collected, garbage taken out, delivered packages brought in, garden watered and house plant care. Karen went above and beyond to make sure everything was taken care of. I recently moved from Carmichael to Folsom and asked Karen to cat sit again for a week while I was out of state. She was able to drop by before I left town to discuss the particulars of the new house and visit with Bryan. Both times Karen has taken care of Bryan I have been please with her work. She emailed me status updates while I was out of the country and texted me updates while I was out of state. This was very comforting to me because I was missing my boy! On both occassions our flights were delayed and/or cancelled making our return day/time prolonged. Karen was able to drop back by the house and care for Bryan on short notice due to the flight problems which was a relief during a stressful time for us! Karen is absolutely the best! We could not be more pleased with her. We will continue to seek her assistance every time we need a pet sitter for sure!

Julie loves pets and is very responsible. She has watched my house, brought in mail, dealt with garbage cans and taken great care of my 2 dogs and my parents' dog, all at the same time. She will even send you pictures of your pet, at home waiting for you, and send them to you via email or your cell phone. Julie loves to go above and beyond the expected. I have known her many years and trust her completely. I highly recommend Julie and her services.

    This barn is a awesome! One of the cleanest barns I have seen, there is always someone there, and the horses all seem very happy and well cared for. I started taking lessons and from the beginning everyone has been welcoming(not the norm I found out). This barn is worth every penny. And Carol is a hoot!

    I have reviews and tons of clients who are willing to talk for references. I guess after 16 years, that's one of the wonderful things that happens: trust! I am an experienced and trained vet nurse/pet sitter, and I'm available 7 days a week. I provide daily drop-by pet sitting for your little loved ones, while you're here or away! I've been doing this for 16 years, and I have built a wonderful clientele in S.F. but have recently moved to Napa Valley where I plan on moving my business. I take care of healthy and not-so-healthy dogs and cats. I worked in veterinary medicine for many years, and I have the experience of administering many types of medication, whether it is insulin injections, hydration or oral medications. What I love the most is feeding, playing with them, and giving unconditional love around the clock!

    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.
