Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts 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.

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.

Reviews for Silver Lake pet sitters

Robin is wonderful, and exactly what you look for in a pet sitter: does what she says she will, likes to be prepared, is extremely thorough, and has a natural way with animals that is apparent the second you meet her. I’ve had bad past experiences with other pet sitters from certain other online services that made me hesitate to try again, but Robin is a true professional. I could tell my cat was comfortable and I would absolutely have her pet sit again. Bonus: she sends tons of great photos!

I was very impressed with the service I got from Aggie. I didn't book until pretty late (for Thanksgiving) but Aggie assured me they'd find a sitter for me, and in the end she did it herself. After just one intro visit I could tell she had a good feel for cats, she even petted our scaredy cat without scaring him off. During the sitting she sent us many pictures and the cats looked happy and comfortable with her there. Upon return we found the house cleaner than we left it and the cats were all relaxed and happy to see us, not at all traumatized. Even the scaredy cat, who she had to give eye drops 3x daily, was relaxed and his eye was in great shape. I would highly recommend Aggie and Care Pet Sitters to anyone with cats or pets who need medication.
