Shelley is a great pet sitter! After posting my inquiry on thumbtack, we met for the initial consult with 2 days. Throughout the entire process Shelley was very responsive and during the sitting hours she always sent photos of my kitties. One of my cats requires medication, which was not a problem for Shelley. Knowing my pets were in the hands of someone who cares about them just as much as myself was a huge relief. I will be asking her to sit my cats whenever I travel now. The quote was a great value! I highly suggest working with Shelley.

Tony & Cameron groomed our 2yr Female English Cream Golden Retriever, and our Male 7 yr. 105lb American Rottweiler and I couldn't believe how awesome they were with them. Especially our rotti! The way they handle our dogs I was sold! Our rotti has never got any grooming done in his life and here comes Cameron & Tony who stole his heart. They listen, read and are very detailed in the body language of the dogs. They were very social and playful to where our English golden retriever is a very submissive dog and she started warming up to them. This is a TOTALLY different kind of mobile service which I was very pleased with. They really made in home mobile experience very comfortable, inviting, loving & caring for our dogs. Tony is very knowledgeable on pets! Any kind of pet you have. I learned a lot and had a very wonderful expeience! Thank you and if I must say get some rain boots for Cameron! Thank you Cameron!

We have been using the services of Pawsitively Purrfect Pet Care for about 14 years, that fact alone I think speaks highly of what they provide! I appreciate the peace of mind knowing that our beloved cats are well tended to as well as the security of our home in our absence. We request one visit daily during which time the cats are fed, sand box cleaned and there is also some playtime which gives companionship. I like the idea that someone lightly checks the interior of the house in case there should be any maintenance mishaps. Being a bonded professional business I have no problem having Elizabeth retain a key and that way is easily available when needed.

I highly recommend Erika as a pet sitter. Erika is flexible, professional, and friendly. Our cat, Bubby, loves her. Erika always sends us videos of Bubby while we're away so we get to see that Bubby is happy and healthy in our absence!

Christina was amazing cat sitter for us. She checked in on Merlin once every couple of days while we were out on a week long vacation. She not only followed every instruction we left her, but also went out of her way to bond with our cat and keep him company (and trust me our cat is not the easiest to bond with). She knowledgeable and confident around pets. I will definitely be checking if she is available next time we need a pet sitter.

I was extremely satisfied with the care my dog received in our absence. Ryan kept me infotmed via text of his visits and how our Layla was doing. I would drfinitely recommend his services. I have never felt comfortable having a pet sitter in my home snd this was a first time. So happy cannot imagine kenneling her when Ryan is availabe and competent.

My first encounter w/ Mike was in late 2015 when vetting pet-sitters to care for my elderly cat over the holidays. He was incredibly professional and it was a tough decision between he and one other candidate. Ultimately at that time I hired the other sitter. BIG MISTAKE. She went through my things and stole some items on the second time I hired her. After that incident I went directly to Mike due to the positive interactions I had w/ him the first time we communicated. He was thrilled to have the opportunity to take care of my Jasmine, so I hired to care for her while I was away for a short business trip. Mike was very professional, came over for a meet & greet, asked all the right questions, and ultimately took fantastic care of my girl. He definitely has a repeat customer in me, so I highly recommend him to anyone else looking for quality pet care.

We needed a cat sitter on short notice. Susi promptly responded and came by to meet Bishop. She was kind and friendly and took very good care of our senior cat including sending email updates about her visits. We will not hesitate to hire Susi again.

Mary is our full time dog walker, she comes daily to our home during the week and also does overnight stays when we go away. Our dog Beau simply loves Mary (and we do too, of course). Beau literally jumps with excitement every time Mary comes over and practically licks her to death. Mary is dependable, caring beyond belief and knows all about Beau and his personality. She keeps us well informed about anything she notices with him gives us great advice if we are dealing with any "doggie issues". We are lucky beyond measure to have her in our lives and highly recommend her for regular dog walking or pet sitting.

Jody was the best cat sitter I could ever have asked for! She came twice a day to feed my kitten and spent a lot of time playing with her everyday. Her price was the best for the quality of care she provided. I highly recommend her to everyone

Pam took excellent care of our 3 dogs: she walked, fed, brushed them and administered eye drops to one of them. She also demonstrated initiative in the house and kept in touch with me the whole time. I highly recommend her as a dog sitter and will definitely use her services again in the future. She is a trustworthy person, her prices are reasonable and I am glad I found her on Thumbtack!

Just came back from our vacation home in Idaho. I had never used Thumbtack before - however the experience was wonderful. We hired Elizabeth Vargas of Liz TLC house and pet sitting. She did an outstanding job. I especially appreciated the photos and messages from her during our trip so we did not worry. Not only did she take care of three cats and four chickens she also watered our garden! Not easy with as hot as it was while we were gone. Would strongly recommend her. Michele Ruberto

I have two cats who LOVE when Maria comes to visit when we go out of town. Maria calls them my "babies", and every day I'm out of town, she sends me a warm, friendly text message with a photo of them eating or looking up at her. It helps me feel connected to them! Maria has been our #1 pet sitter for a few years. She's always available every time I need to book her, even during the holidays. I make sure to give her as much notice as possible so she can plan. We arrange everything through easy text messages and I leave a check for her on the kitchen counter before I go. She keeps a key to my house and I totally trust her there. I highly recommend Maria!

This was our first time using Precious Fur (or any pet sitting service) to watch our 2 kitties, and we were amazed beyond our expectations for how wonderful they were with them. We were out of town for just over a week, and towards the end of our vacation, one of our kitties had an unexpected medical emergency. Jessica noticed right away that he wasn't feeling very well and was able to get him into the pet hospital that same evening to be treated. She dispensed his pain killers and made sure he was hydrating, eating, and was comfortable for the last few days we were away. We came home to kitties who were extremely happy, even after the medical emergency and disruption in their usual routine. We will definitely be using Precious Fur again and would recommend Jessica and Craig to anyone looking for a pet sitter. The care and love they showed our babies was beyond what we were expecting. They treated them like their own little family, and it makes the anxiety of leaving them when we are out of town a bit easier.

I am so happy to have found Uncle Joe. In fact he is currently looking after my cats while I am away! I am usually very uncomfortable having anyone in my house, especially when I'm gone, but I feel none of that with Joe. He sends me a photo and quick update each time he visits which really sets my mind at ease. He also offers to bring in mail, water plants, and other extras which is really nice. His prices are very reasonable and he even offers a price break if you buy a "package" of visits, which is great for frequent travelers or a long trip. He was incredibly thorough during our first meeting, getting a ton of info and background. He is a natural, a true animal lover, and really knows his stuff--he's made for this line of work. I have never been so happy with another cat sitter and I have used quite a few. Do yourself a favor, give Uncle Joe's Pet Care a try!

Adam was amazing with our dog Ella, both when he house sat for us and when he walks her from time to time. When Adam comes to the door Ella immediately is over the moon excited and knows exactly where to go and sit after she is done saying hello.... yes you got it, next to his car so she can go for a ride and a hike. Adam also surprised me when I got home by having the sheets from the bed he slept in while he was house sitting all washed, folded and sitting on the end of the bed. What a delight not to need to clean up after a house sitter. I give Adam "4 Paws Up"

Anne is fabulous. She is dependable and super flexible with our schedule. I would highly recommend Anne for all your pet sitting needs. Our fur baby LOVES Anne. She is always so happy to see her which makes us feel great. Anne has also taken care of her when we were away. It gives us such a peace of mind knowing our girl is so well taken cared of. Anne is great. She is loving, sweet and loves the animals that are in her care. She is our go to person and we love having her take care of our precious girl. You will not go wrong with Anne.

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.
