Dee Cee was very nice and seemed knowledgable. She gave me some things to work on with my dog. Time will tell if her advice was good or not.

I worked with Robert Weatherwax during a theatrical production. I was greatly impressed how he took a friendly, but previously untrained and overstimulated pet - and turned it into a well-trained dog that responded on stage in front of a live audience. The dog loved him and the transformation was remarkable. I should not have been surprised though as Robert's family has a decades long history of training the famous and not so famous. Robert Weatherwax is an accomplished and caring trainer whom I highly recommend!

I had an out of town emergency and I called last minute. Barbara got back to me within half an hour and was able to come over meet my dog Jj and set up pet sitting. A life saver! I use her weekly now for daytime walks when I work so I know my dog gets his exercise.

Angela was great; she got us out of a jamb with last minute cat sitting. She's personable and we felt like our kittens were left in good, responsible hands.

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.

Such exceptional service! Leaving your pet for the day or longer is stressful for everyone concerned. Susan takes some of the stress away by providing a wonderful environment. It's so good knowing someone you can trust is taking care of your pet. Susan updated us with regular pictures. We are very grateful.

I had a great experience working with Sherri and had Doreen take care of my cat while I was out of town! Doreen was sweet and updated me on my little guy when ever I asked. I will be using their services in the future!

Robin has pet sat for all of our dogs and cats over the years. She loves and cares for them as if they were her own. When we return from vacation, we sometimes think our pets would rather have her stay longer than watch us come home, as they get daily massages and 24/7 attention in her presence. She is also a fantastic pet photographer and sends us photo updates during her stay at our home. She brings her own food and cleans the sheets and towels she uses before we return. She sometimes has other client jobs during our job, but she asks us ahead of time. Since the jobs are usually feeding a cat across town, which takes an hour or two, we don't have a problem with it. All of our pets are seniors that require medication on specific schedules. Robin is really good about taking care of geriatric animals (guinea pigs included), which allow us the peace of mind to leave for an important family event, one of us would not otherwise be able to attend.

Kimberly has been pet sitting for me for years now and is absolutely wonderful!! I like how loving she is with my Cody, how thorough her daily visit reports are, and the sweet photos I get daily. I can leave town without any worries because I know my dog is in great hands with her. I would highly recommend her for your pet sitting needs.

We were so worried about leaving our very sensitive dog and independent cat when we needed to be out of town for a week. It was truly a blessing to find Linda (Roo's Pet Sitting Service). She put our dog Bella at ease immediately, and even came to see us again a day beforehand to make our girl more comfortable with her presence before we left. She was able to charm our cat with no problem as well. Linda stayed overnight with our babies, provided their meals and ensured Bella had good long walks. Throughout our trip she texted us daily to let us know how our babies were doing. On top of that she took care of plants and mail at no extra charge. I would recommend Linda to anyone who wants good, loving and affordable care for their pets.

To Whom it may concern: When I re-located to the Los Angeles area, one of my priorities was to find someone to pet-sit my Jack Russell Terrier, Maggie. Prior to moving, I had an ideal set up where Maggie could stay with a family, feel comfortable and loved, and be safe. I was able to find this ideal set up again with Jo-Jeanne. She is extremely reliable, professional, and I always felt I could leave Maggie with Jo-Jeanne and have a truly carefree vacation. I would highly recommend Jo-Jeanne for any petsitting/housesitting jobs. (She is also great with gardens and plants!!) Sincerely, Nancy Neal 818.330.9147

Tara is one of the very few pet sitters I trust my pets with. Her conscientiousness and attention to detail is bar none. She treats my 2 dogs and 2 cats like the treasured family members that they are, and I truly have peace of mind when I am away and I know that they are in Tara's loving care. If you want exceptional pet care service and peace of mind, then Tara is the one to call!

I felt totally comfortable leaving my pets with Eva! I knew they were in good hands and with her knowledge about pet health (because of her career) put my mind even more at ease. I got pictures and text updates along the way which was awesome! My kittens love her! Definitely will be a repeat customer!! I don't think you'll find a person who loves cats more than her, even cats who don't belong to her :)

I always get anxious when traveling and leaving my dog back in LA. I felt 100% less anxious knowing Kenny was watching Sammie. He knows dogs better than anyone I've met and understands my needs as well. I wouldn't dream of leaving my dog with anyone else!

We have a 3 1/2 year old cat that is new (2 weeks) to our family. The vet suggested that the cat stay home and not be boarded while we are on a short trip. George (Wiskers, Tails and Mail) was very understanding of our situation. He took excellent care of our cat and her new environment (litter box, feeding area, etc.). George also kept me informed on her activities while we were away. Utilizing the services of Wiskers, Tails and Mail was a huge relief during our time away. I highly recommend George and his company as they really provide more then pet sitting. They also supply peace of mind for the owner. P.S. I ran out of time to have the mail stopped and at the last minute George stepped into collect the mail on a daily basis. What a life saver! George and Lorna, thanks for everything!

Barbara was fantastic. Conscientious, capable and kind. She took care of a nineteen year-old cat that needed 4 types of medication and sub-cutaneous fluids twice a day. And our beloved cat actually gained weight!!! Plus walking and pampering two dogs. She sent us pictures and texts, staying in communication, and watered our plants and left the house in great shape. She's a responsible person who is home most of the time. Can't recommend her enough.

I hired them for cat-sitting services and they are very reliable. They spent time with my two cats, ensured that they were fed and had clean water and a clean litter box, and texted pictures of my two fur-people to me every day to confirm their visit. Natalie, the owner, is very courteous and professional and worked with my schedule to provide the requested services, even over busy holiday seasons. Her staff are all kind animal lovers. I highly recommend them.

Patricia stayed at our house for three weeks to care for our two dogs, Lola and Banjo. Since this was Patricia's first time with our dogs, she suggested coming over at least twice before our trip to get acquainted with our dogs. I thought that really showed her attentiveness and concern about our dogs. It also gave me an opportunity to observe how she acted with the dogs. Well, she was fantastic. Patricia is really sensitive to the dogs' temperaments and preferences. She gives them time to get comfortable with them. When we returned from our trip, it was the first time that the dogs weren't insanely excited to see us. Happy, but not overexcited. I attribute that to the fact that they were comfortable, well taken care of and got lots of attention from Patricia. Patricia followed all of our instructions to the letter. She was at our house all of the time. She took care of all of the dogs' medicine needs exactly as asked. You could not find a more responsive house/pet sitter than Patricia.

    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.
