Dee Cee is the best dogwalker I have ever had. She is reliable, trustworthy, and my two Rottweilers absolutely love her. She walks them an hour each day, Monday through Friday. I can't say enough good things about her. I trust her with my dogs more than I do members of my own family.

KYM IMPROVED QUALITY OF LIFE FOR MY DOG AND I BOTH;SHE IS AWESOME! SHE KNOWS HER STUFF AND IS VERY KIND!Frida is my first dog & considered by some a "problem breed".I rescued her mother & siblings & found then all homes...except Frida, I chose her from the litter.Years before meeting Kym, I read up a bit. I did some things right for my puppy! Icrate trained her, and took her to puppy classes. She was easily potty trained, and trained not to bark, chew or nibble on fingers. She learned to sit, stay, fetch, and high five. She is very loyal& sweet and once scared off an intruder who came in through my kitchen window at night!!!! I thought everything was great. Frida always had a big yard, a bed inside, and always seemed happy. At about 6 years old, we moved to a smaller place. Frida had a dog run &we played often but @ 65 lbs, she needed to go on walks. I then realized what a naughty human I had been. Frida was totally unsocialized, she tugged on her leash, would nip if strangers tried to pet her, disliked children, and refused to come when I called her. She liked to chase motorcycles..skate boards, trucks, & cats.....oh my!I had inadvertently conditioned her to be a yard guard dog. ...with very poor social skills and bad manners. Total nightmare @ the park!I became so worried about her running off and her seemingly aggressive behavior, our walks became very stressful. I felt guilty and stressed!I tried a few trainers who suggested choke chains and various techniques until KYM RESCUED US!!!!! She convinced me to bring my 6 year old dog to puppy classes. I always say Kym trained me and my dog responded quickly. She didn't let me waste anymore time feeling worried our stressed. She was kind, patient, and well informed. It became a simple matter of me learning to understand my dogs needs and behavior. Frida comes when called, doesn't chase cars, and has even spent time at doggy day care with other dogs!!!!! She's even nice to the cable guy! Yet, I'm still confident Frida would stave off any intruders!Kym trained us both well!! I have my sweet best buddy back with more play options than ever! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND KYM FOR ANY DOGGY NEEDS YOU MAY HAVE!!!!

We are house sitting a dog for 6 weeks, and we needed immediate training as the dog had not been previously trained. Allison came over, helped me immensely, and we are on the road to good behavior! Allison will be available as our needs arise, but I highly recommend her for her knowledge, patience and guidance.

I was very nervous about hiring a new pet sitter, as I recently moved to LA and did not know who to call. After meeting Susan at Tails R Waggin', my fears were alleviated immediately. She was kind, professional, punctual, and obviously loved her job. I just returned from my first trip. The attention that Susan paid to my three cats is beyond compare. They are typically shy and hide but they instantly took to her, a feat that has never happened in the nine years I have had them. The care to my home was equally impressive!! (I came home to find my house looking better than when I left.) You cannot go wrong with Tails R Waggin. Use with confidence and know that your furry loved ones will be in great hands!

Sherri has been outstanding accommodating a dog sitter for me! I live in Garden Grove where it seems there is a lack of sitters in this area. Luckily Sherri has staff to cover this area! So far I've used her services 2-3 times and always been satisfied!

I love Robin! She does an amazing job with my pets. I have several dogs and cats (seniors and special needs animals) and I NEVER worry about them while I am away. Robin does a fantastic job taking care of everyone and my house while I'm gone. And as an added bonus she takes the most amazing pictures of your pets and sends daily updates! I would highly recommend Robin as a great pet sitter!

Natalie is a godsend to my girlfriend, our two pups and me! We were reluctant to trust anyone to walk our boys, let alone stay over with them. However, she is a great example of how there are still "good people" in the world. Natalie has taken care of our boys as if they were her own. She's gone above and beyond our expectations, including bringing them special treats and giving us a holiday card. The boys - who are definitely not the best behaved - quickly warmed up to her and she's been very patient with them, trying to teach them tricks and manners. I highly recommend Natalie as a dog walker or pet sitter. I'd be happy to discuss by phone if you have any questions.

Jo stayed with our pets - dog and cat - while we were away. The pets were happy when we returned and the house was in better shape than we left it. I plan to ask Jo to take care of the pets and house when I have to travel again. I highly recommend her to anyone needing a house/pet sitter.

My daughter and I used Alicia to take care of our two pets--a hedgehog and a tortoise. She took excellent care of them and even sent us emails and pictures throughout the week. She is a very honest and pleasant and I would definately recommend her to anyone I know. I am going to use her again this summer.

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!

Eva is such a great doggy-sitter for our family. She takes great care of Ziggy; he's a tough dog that doesn't trust many people. Eva is trustworthy, conscientious, and reliable. We wouldn't entrust our dog and home to anyone else!

Dale is an all around great human being. She adores animals and is so responsible and caring. I left my home and beloved dog in her hands for several weeks and I was so at peace while I was away knowing she was taking care of things while I was gone. I highly recommend her for pet + house sitting. She is amazing!

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.
