We were in a unique situation in that we were moving across the country and needed a quick last minute sitter for our cat while we drove our furniture/stuff out to Denver. The services were great - lots of professionals and very informative. They sent updates on the first and last days to show our kitty was doing well and they even left a report card for our cat when we got home (he got an A+ by the way!) - a really unique business structure. I've used many cat sitters and this was by far the most organized system I've seen with great people. I highly recommend them and I will be using them again.

My husband and I had an incredible experience with Live Green Denver Pet Sitters. Both Moksha and JT were fabulous. They took such good care of our cat Hepburn while we were gone for 10 days on holiday. Daily, we received an email and short video of Hepburn. It was so nice to see my kitty everyday. JT and Moksha did exactly what we asked them too do. I have found my cat sitters for life. They are the best!!! Thank you Moksha and JT. Sincerely, Janet and Sandy Rudolph

Paw N Claws began pet sitting for me in 2013. As a single professional, I needed someone to let my dogs out during the day. They were referred to me by my former pet sitter who retired. They are reliable, cost competitive and you can tell they just love animals. When my dog had medical issues, they gave me some pointers and referred me to my vet - whom I love. I highly recommend them.

Ann is the first experience we have had with using a pet sitter and couldn't be happier. She came over to our house the week prior to our trip to meet the kitties. Ann came over to do well checks on our cats 7 times over 2 weeks, which we had discussed prior to our trip. Kitties were very well taken care of and after we came home & met up with Ann again our male cat came right out & wanted attention from her right away. I definitely recommend Ann for any pet sitting needs.

Michelle has been walking & dog sitting our first baby, our dog Jack, for over five years and we couldn't be more happy to have her in our lives. We are so fortunate to have found such a trustworthy, responsible and caring individual to care for our pup as much as we do. And our dog LOVES her! She's fantastic! If you are in need of dog care, I would recommend Michelle in a heartbeat. She also watches over our home while dog sitting which is a great relief to know both our dog and house are safe while we are away on family vacations, etc.

Lissa took excellent care of my two dogs and cat over an extended weekend getaway. I was so pleased with the communication and attention to every detail that she provided every day. Lissa was very careful to follow my instructions and guidelines. When I arrived home, it was obvious that my dogs were very well cared for, exercised and in a very calm and peaceful state. I've had previous experience with other pet sitting services where I arrived home to unkept, anxiety-ridden, and over-excitable pets and it was so nice NOT to have to re-train them. It was also a great benefit to get regular text messages every day along with beautiful pictures of all three of my girls, giving me peace of mind while I was away that my animals were being shown a lot of attention and love. The service I received with Lissa has made it easier for me to plan weekend getaways and deal with my hectic work schedule, knowing I have someone so trustworthy to take excellent care of my pets when I am unable to. Thanks so much, Lissa!

DogsColorado is AWESOME!!! Firstly, they are bonded and insured and certified in Pet CPR. I feel really great knowing my dog is spending time out and about while I am at work with a loving, kind, responsible and knowledgeable companion and making doggie friends, too. AND my dog is having fun and getting exercise, fresh air and mental and emotional stimulation so when I get home I don't feel guilty that he has been locked inside all day. My dog and I are both healthier and happier because of DogsColorado. I highly recommend them.

Megan of Black Dog Pet Services is an absolute life saver. She comes to our home 3 times a day and takes wonderful care of our new puppy, always updating us via text message regarding her visits. Megan also helps us out with small household chores. The truth is we couldn't do it without her and trust her implicitly. She is incredibly professional, thorough, accomodating, and responsible. You couldn't ask for a better dog sitter/walker!

Wow! How did we ever find such a spectacular lady?! Actually, our journey to finding Lisa was a little unusual. We knew we would be traveling and really wanted someone to come check on our sweet cat, Newton. I normally work from home so he is used to having someone around all the time. I wasn’t willing to leave for so long without knowing he had a friend to care for him. We asked around a lot, but nobody had a sitter they would actually recommend - yikes! I started looking on google, but all the bigger companies seemed to really only care about dogs. Finally I downloaded Thumbtack, entered my location and my needs and was matched with quite a few well reviewed sitters. When I actually reached out to them though, none of them were willing to come to Boulder. This was confusing to me since I had entered my location but I was SO happy when we got in touch with Lisa. I told her my issue she assured me she lived and worked in Boulder so coming to visit Newton was no problem. She was so accommodating with our busy schedules. After talking with her about history and background (which I recommend because she is such a sweet and funny lady!) I knew she was a perfect match. Then Newton came downstairs and warmed up to her IMMEDIATELY! I have never seen anything like it for a cat who is so easily spooked! Lisa actually volunteered to take care of our mail and plants too - we didn’t have to ask! Right before we left we received a noticed from the community stating that all cars had to be moved for 2 days while the surface streets were repaved! I didn’t hesitate for a second to reach out to Lisa. She said “no problem - just leave the keys and let me know where the car is parked and I would be happy to move it for you.” These might all seem like little things, but we really felt like Lisa was not only our pet sitter coming to feed the cat. We felt like she was taking care of our whole family! We got pictures and updates on Lisa & Newton’s visit daily via email. She took the time to get to know him and went out on the patio with him (he is not allowed out unsupervised). Lisa even sent us a sweet “welcome home” text when she knew we would be back in the country and left a lovely note on our kitchen table for us. I can’t tell you how fortunate we are to have found Lisa. I am not usually able to let go when someone says “don’t worry”, but with Lisa I really felt like I had nothing to worry about. We feel very lucky to have someone that feels like a family friend in Boulder.

Paws United is the best pet sitting service I have used. They are all very friendly and very reliable. I never worry about my dogs being taken care of. If they say they are going to be there, they are going to be there and do the best work possible. There are many great pet sitters out there but this is the one that is best for us.

Chelsey watched our 2 dogs and 1 cat for us while we traveled out of state. She was amazing! She provided an update text and picture each day, came over to feed the animals and let them outside twice per day. She's definitely trustworthy and dependable. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a pet sitter!

Best pet sitter ever! Lori took great care of my cats while we were away. Played with them, sent me updates - she is so wonderful with Belle and Beau - they were visibly happier when we returned. Funny, she takes better care of animals over most child care providers! My plants always survive my absence and litter boxes are clean. Lori offers peace of mind to pet lovers. I highly recommend her as a pet/house sitter … you will not be disappointed! Janet Phillips Wheat Ridge, Colorado

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.
