I have a higher needs kitty, who requires mediation daily, and Nicolette went above and beyond - even laying down under edge of the bed and hand feeding my cat her medications. With regular text messages and pictures from home, I knew both of my cats were in good care and I look forward to having Nicolette cat sit for us again in the future!!

Nancy and her assistant, Eric, did a GREAT job on cleaning our house for the new owner. The house smelled great and you would never have known dogs also lived there. Five star rating!

Meg is amazing! She is so trustworthy, honest and hardworking. Our entire family loved Meg. Our dog's eyes lit up when she arrived at our house. I never worried about our pets when we left Austin for the weekend because I knew they were in great hands. Meg took such great care of our dog and cat in a daily basis. She was so kind to both of them and their care was a priority. She takes pride in her work and puts her heart into her job. She was a lifesaver for me with a new puppy and a busy family schedule. She became part of our family! I would rate Meg an A plus and high 10. I only have positive things to say about her and the services for our pets. I would hire her again in a heartbeat !

Beyond impressed! Lis and Cesar were able to help out with my last minute cat sitting needs. Lis met me at my apt. within 24 hours of my initial request for a consultation. Both cats took to Lis immediately and I had nothing to worry about. Very professional and loved the daily picture updates!

Thank you, this was the worst trip coming back with the trailer and my mind was at ease when you allowed them to stay another night. You will be the only person I call to keep my babies when needed. Just watching the video you sent for the first time, I can't believe Destini is playing and running with the other dogs. Mr Mike they will most definitely be back, she's running like a pup not a 9 year old with the others! Thank you so much 😊!

Jennifer O. March 12, 2017 VERIFIED STAY Trina has been checking in on my pups while we're at school and work and has been very patient with my dogs who tend to be very leery of new people. She sends me a report on how it went each day, putting my mind at ease and is making progress with my little ones, which I'm sure isn't easy. I really appreciate having her as our doggie-sitter. ============================= Laura D. February 1, 2017 VERIFIED STAY We're so glad we found Trina! With three dogs and a cat, it's been hard to find quality in-house pet care in Vallejo, but Trina was wonderful. We felt completely at ease having her stay in our home and the animals clearly think she's the best. We are certain we will be using Trina again in the future. ============================== Susan F. December 19, 2016 VERIFIED STAY Trina did a home visit for our older hound. He is a lover, but can be very picky when it comes to eating. Trina spent lots of time with him and even got him to eat! She spent the extra time to clean up after him, and wrote us a lovely note detailing how he did with her while we were gone. We feel very comfortable using Trina, and look forward to using her in the future. ============================== Teresa B. July 21, 2016 VERIFIED STAY Trina was a wonderful help when I went on vacation and had no one to watch my two shiba inus. She was prompt and very professional in responding. Very accommodating with regards to my dogs needs as well as mine. She was very sweet to my two little children when meeting them. The dogs were in good spirits upon my return and I could tell they were well cared for. I appreciate that she let me know each time she was at the house, and it was exactly what we agreed on. She also brought in my mail and ensured the house was intact, in addition the house was how I left it upon my return. I would strongly recommend her to anyone needing care for their animals and I will be calling on her again! Thank you Trina. ================================ Ben S. July 19, 2016 VERIFIED STAY Trina is WONDERFUL! We left our two dogs with Trina to be sat for two nights while we went Rafting & Camping, and then to an event in San Francisco the next day. The dogs ABSOLUTELY loved her! She has a 10 year old Boxer named Max, and Cash, my partners tiny little 5lb. Chihuahua, hung with his new buddy on Trina's living room couch. Tilly, my 12lb. Jack/Pom mix adores Trina as well, and loves going on walks with Max. PERFECT SITUATION for us -- Trina lives about 2 minutes away from us, and she also agreed to take the dogs again last minute for another night the following weekend, while we go kayaking. She's a lovely person, and is VERY thorough, and VERY responsive to her clients needs, both human and canine. I HIGHLY recommended her and her services.

Mandy looked after our 2 cats while we went to visit family for 5 days and she was AWESOME! First of all she was very punctual, and super easy to communicate with which made it easy to make the last minute arragements. Second, yet most important, she was GREAT with the cats! One of our cats is very attached and would get really worried and depressed when we would leave, and the other one is very shy and usually hides around strangers, but not this time! They were both happy as can be!! She later described a few things about the cats that she wouldn't have known unless she was spending quality time with them and that I know our cats wouldn't do unless they were comfortable and trusting of her. Mandy just has a very easy going, calming and kind personality that really put both the cats and myself at ease. She also managed to send us regular updates, even though it was nearly impossible to reach us where we were. She sent some photos as well, and I could just tell the cats were 100% content. It was so great not having to worry! We will definitely be calling her again since now I can actually look forward to our next trips rather than dreading having to leave my favorite fuzz balls with someone. Oh, and on top of all that she kept the house super tidy and clean(I think even better than when we left). So without a doubt, I would recommend Mandy to anyone and everyone who is looking for a pet sitter they can trust. Thanks again Mandy!!!

I went out of town for a little over a week and needed someone to provide care for my cat. Elese was very responsive and professional. She was also very accommodating when coordinating the drop off of my key. My cat seems very happy in the daily reports I revived. I will most definitely be using Happy Paws again!

We recently had the pleasure of engaging Amy to care for our two cats while we were out of town. We couldn’t be happier with the service she provided. She did all the feeding and maintenance activities we requested but went above and beyond when playing and caring for our two loved ones. She sent us great pictures and updates, it was reassuring and fun to receive the photos. Our cat Kato is a real recluse when it come to new people in the home… We were so surprised to see pictures of him out playing with Amy and our other cat D’jango. We highly recommend Amy’s pet sitting!

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 :)

Angie is heaven sent. My two dogs greet her with so much love & joy, it makes my heart sing! She has been so helpful with dogsitting at my place and even more extraordinarily with helping me get started with my very own dog walking service in Los Angeles. I learned so much from her example. Angie is the kind of person who has driven to Mexico from California to get much needed affordable veterinary care for a cat who turned up on her doorstep. She helped a traumatized pitbull recover in her home when he crossed her path and soon after she adopted him. She also helped me with an insurance claim when I worked with a rescue dog who got into an incident. Angie is a resourceful, reliable, trustworthy person and you can add all the virtues on her name and those will ring true.

    Hired Alex to pet sit our cats while we went out of town last weekend. Was nervous to leave our fur babies with just anyone; however, upon meeting Alex at our consultation, I knew she was someone I could trust. Alex is very professional, accommodating and reliable! She also kept us up to date on how our cats were doing and sent pictures of them while they were under her care! Would highly recommend Alex and look forward to having her take care our fur babies in the future!!!

    About

    I am a San Diego based animal lover and dog walker. I began walking dogs of all shapes and sizes when I moved to this lovely city, nearly 6 years ago. I enjoy socializing your pet at local dog beaches and dog parks! If your little guy/girl is more of a lone wolf, I'll cater to that need and provide walks that your pet will enjoy. I'm an avid runner and first-time marathoner. If your pet enjoys trail runs as much as I do, we can boost energy levels and build stamina, while taking in what Mother Nature has to offer.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    Do cats have to get groomed?

    It’s not crazy to have your cat groomed. Grooming will keep your cat’s fur soft and silky as well as give you early warning about any health concerns. Regular grooming can also help reduce the volume of hair your cat may be shedding and keep your longhair kitty cool if you live in a warm climate. Professionals competently groom your cat and are trained to manage them if they resist being groomed, while you may get scratched doing the same task. The national average price for cat grooming is $50-$70. Pet grooming prices may vary based on the task. For example, a bath and brush for shorthair cats may be $15, $20 for medium-hair cats, and $25 for a longhair. Cat groomers can also keep your cat’s ears cleaned, trim their nails, and provide haircuts if needed. Average prices for haircuts can vary from $30 to $95 or more, depending on whether the cat is shy or aggressive and whether their coat is in good condition, matted, or otherwise difficult to groom.

    Where can you get your cat groomed?

    Cat grooming keeps your cat’s fur tangle-free and clean. Most businesses that offer dog grooming or general pet grooming also offer cat grooming; some businesses even specialize solely in cat grooming. Look for a professional who has training grooming cats or belongs to a professional association such as the National Cat Groomers Institute, because cat grooming techniques can be different than for dogs. Cat grooming can encompass a wide range of services. In addition to haircutting, hair detangling and hairstyling, cat groomers can trim cat nails, clean out your cat’s ears, give flea baths, demat, trim facial fur, bathe and even blow-dry your cat. Health safety and etiquette requires your cat to be in good health and have all their vaccinations before using grooming services.

    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.

    How much should cat grooming cost?

    Keeping your cat groomed is an important part of maintaining their good health. The national average cost for cat grooming ranges between $50 and $70, with prices varying based on where you live and the services you request. Your cat’s temperament can also affect grooming prices. Scratching and hissing during a groomer visit can raise rates an average of $5-$10, or more, as hazard pay. Larger cats and long-haired cats that take longer to groom will also usually cost more. Here are some examples of cat grooming average costs:

    • Shave down or lion cut: $35-$60. These cuts preserve the hair around the face and tip of the tail but shave down the entire body. The lion cut is often recommended for extremely matted hair is exceedingly matted, for extreme heat, or for cats who are suffering from hairballs.
    • Ear cleaning and nail trim: $30.
    • Nail trim: $10-$15.
    • Bath and nail trim: $45.
    • Bath and sanitary trim: $55. A sanitary trim clips the hair on a cat’s behind to prevent fecal matting in longhair cats or cats that have mobility issues.
    • Bath, blow-dry, brush out, nail trim and ear cleaning: $40.
    • Full haircut, bath, and nail trim: $45-$95, depending on matting.
