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 would highly recommend Barbara Gavin for all your pet sitting, house sitting and dog walking needs. Barbara has been house sitting and looking after my pets for many years, she is reliable and 100% trustworthy. She looks after all types of pets. My 90 pound Akita gets so excited when she hears her driving up the driveway. She just loves her. Dogs love her. She is top notch.

I've had Cheryl dog sit my two dogs (Hannah and Stella) on four occasions now and she's just amazing. I've had numerous people stay with the dogs over the years and none of them have put my mind at ease the way she does. Hannah is a bit agoraphobic and arthritic and Stella... well she's just little. So they're not always easy. Hannah doesn't enjoy leaving the property which makes walks difficult. On Cheryl's last stay (which lasted TWO weeks) she decided to get Hannah out on daily walks. And she did it! Actually did two a day. Miraculous! And not only is she out walking, Hannah actually seems to enjoy it. Honestly I just think she fell in love with Cheryl and is trying to please her. Totally fine with me. I cannot say enough great things about Cheryl. Hire her. You won't regret it.

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.

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've never used a pet sitter before, so I was hesitant. I got 3 replies and chose Virginia Norris. She came to my house to go over what I wanted her to do. She kept me updated while I was on vacation on how things were going, especially at the end. I would definitely use her again and highly recommend her. Lori Stern

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.
