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.

Christina did a great job cat-sitting for us while we were out of the country, even extending the time for an extra day on short notice when our flight was delayed.

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!

The first time I met Laura I knew she was a huge animal lover. My sheltie, Charlie, is usually reserved around people he doesn't know, but he took to Laura immediately. In fact, he couldn't wait for Laura to take him on his daily walks - whenever she arrived, he would be at the door ready to go. Charlie also liked to go to Laura's house for pet sitting. I felt very comfortable leaving Charlie at Laura's house because the other dogs she was sitting for were always friendly and never aggressive toward Charlie or toward each other. I highly, highly, recommend Laura Tait for all of her pet services - she's a real gem.

Pet sitting and cleaning. I had hired Debbie to stay over with my dog and cat while I went out of town for four days. I also asked her to clean the apartment (710 sqft). She gave me her flat fees for visiting the apartment during the day to walk my dog and staying over night. She gave me a low end and a high end for cleaning. She went me pictures of my pets while I was gone, and when I got home my apartment was cleaned top to bottom including the fridge and base boards. My dog didbdidn'teven seem to care very much that I was home which shows how much time she spent with him. I couldn't have asked for more or better or different. I will hire Debbie again in a heartbeat.

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.

We've had Gina house-sit and stay with our precious Shih Tzus for years. She is absolutely dedicated to loving and caring for animals. She is experienced in giving medications, when necessary and our girls love her. I never worry about a thing when we travel. We've been gone as long as two weeks, and Gina is professional in every way. I highly recommend Gina for pet-sitting, dog walking, or any job related to your precious pets.

Julie is amazing! She watched after our three cats for two weeks while we were in Europe. She kept them in a large room in her beautiful, clean home. She gave us daily updates with pictures and videos. One of my cats became sick the day after I dropped them off. She noticed his odd behavior immediately and took him straight to the vet. My cat ended up needing multiple tests and a small procedure performed. Julie took him to all of the vet visits and made sure he was loved and calm. She took all of the necessary precautions and me feel a lot more at ease. I will absolutely be going back to her in the future!

We live in France and searched relevant websites for someone to look after an older dog in our home. This is where we discovered the lovely India Leigh. Although we had FaceTimed each other a couple of times before the asssignment was due to commence we were still aprehensive. However after a couple of hours all together on the first day she had overcome any doubts we may have had and our minds were at complete ease. India is a warm, caring, concientious person in whom one can have total confidence. A couple of problems occured while she was here. These she resolved satisfactorily without troubling us. The dog was well cared for as was our house. She had use of a car and again there were no problems. There is little more to add other than she is not only a lovely person but one in whom I have total confidence.

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!

Julie took extra special care of my geriatric cat allowing me to go on a long anticipated holiday. She carried the cat to her food and to her bed several times daily. She also took care of my large feral colony while I was gone so that everyone was safe and sound when I returned.

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.
