Roberts background is very impressive, that's why I chose him. Robert also has a unique style of training that I haven't seen before. Most importantly I'm getting the results and my pet isn't stressed, she's happy! If you want to have a loving and bonding relationship with your pet get a trainer. Finding a good trainer isn't easy. Save yourself from frustrating experiences and hirer the very best. You'll be extremely happy you chose Robert, I am!

We used pit stop dog walking& pet care for the first time and are so happy! The girls are so nice and clearly love animals. I was nervous leaving my pups. The girls were great at sending pictures and text. We got to get away without worrying. We will be using them a lot more. Very professional, and trustworthy .

Illuminado trains our puppy with positive reinforcement, and gives us the skills to maintain our puppy's good behavior in our home and in social settings. Our puppy now sits, lies down, stays, comes, and more upon command. This excellent, enjoyable, and effective training has made us--and our puppy--very happy. Thank you Illuminado!!!

My experience with Tails and Scales Pet Services was amazing! My babies loved Marisol and she loved them back. I received a daily report and photos every visit. I would definitely recommend Tails and Scales any day!

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 have been using her services since my puppy was 6 months, and he is now 3 1/2 years old. She has been watching my dog for the past three years, and my dog is quite picky on what he likes and doesn't like! What I like the most about her services is that she is VERY flexible, many times I have last minute jobs, and she is ALWAYS readily available to take him in. I also enjoy that she sometimes has other small dogs for him to play with, but not where it is overwhelming like a doggie daycare (my dog likes to be just with one person or dogs similar to his sweet temperament). He always wags his tail when I drop him off, and is always happy to see her daughter (my dog loves kids). When I pick him up, he is always tired and passes right out once I leave to go back home, meaning he had fun and was busy while staying over. She also caters do his diet and bathroom regime. She makes sure that when you leave your dog with her, that your dog is treated the same way as you would treat him/her. I would highly recommend her services especially if your dog is picky and you want that more personal touch in a doggie day care service.

Wonderful woman who genuinely loved and cared for my two dogs while We went out of state on vacation.. No worries hire her she is a gem! I was able to let go and let Susan take care of our fur babies and she was available by phone to assure me of any concerns. She came to my house prior to sitting my pets for several days so she knew my dogs, their names and my concerns...I can”t say enough good things about her except I would hire her again tomorrow and recommend her to everyone who loves their pets. Hire her and she will treat you pets like you would with extra love!

Emily takes excellent care of my two dogs- twice a day any time I am out of town, and when I get back they are always happy campers! Perfectly taken care of. She is so kind, great with my pets, and sharp! You don't have to remind her of anything twice. I love working with her and have recommended her business to all my family and friends.

    Suzy is great: prompt, reliable, and very sweet with my two older dogs. Even walking them in the pouring rain, she had a smile on her face.


    Hi. My name is Tom, and I truly care about animals. They're more than just pets, they're family and they deserve to be treated as such.


    I love dogs and have some of my own. I would love to be a pet sitter. I am young and have a lot of free time.


    I love animals and enjoy working with them. I have a lot of spare time so I would love to help others in need of a pet care giver.

    Over 20 years experience in Zookeeping, Veterinary and the pet care industry. Reliable, responsible, caring and affordable. The best care for your fur babies!!


    Hello, my name is Jada, and I am 18. My entire life I have had pets, all kinds -- cats, dogs, birds, snakes, turtles, and any animal that you can think of, from any size. So when I turned about 10, I started to put up signs around the area for free animal sitting and free animal walking -- really anything that had to do with animals, I wanted to do. Sometimes, I used to watch the animals at my house when I was around that age, but when I reached around 15, some house owners were comfortable with me caring for their animals in their home. I love animals, and I'll do anything to make sure they're comfortable, happy and loved.


    I'm Dorotea. I'm 18 and just started in community college, that gives me a lot of free time during the day. I have a dog and a cat, and I love taking care of them. I am a dog enthusiast, but I enjoy cats' company as well. If you are out of the town or just really busy and can't find time to take your dog out on a walk, I would love to do it for you. I can also take care of your pets (walk, feed, and play with) for a longer period of time, depending on your needs.

    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.
