Cathy is a wonderful groomer! She took extra time to introduce my 5 month old Goldendoodle puppy to all of the grooming tools and was so gentle and patient during the puppy's first experience. I'm so glad we chose to go with Cathy.

Corinn was super informative and answered all of our questions. Our little balls of terror obeyed her instantly upon arrival. Within 15 min she had our newest puppy sitting and waiting for a treat. By the time she was finished we had everything we needed to further instill the lessons that she showed us. We even had her come back a second time to help with leash pulling which we are working towards currently. Overall I would highly recommend her, you won't be disappointed.

Pricilla does an excellent job. My house is sparkling and smells wonderful when she leaves. Somehow she's able to get every bit of dog hair and dust. I trust her enough to leave my house while she's cleaning, which says so much!

From the beginning robin was fantastic, the first interaction was a free consultation where she met us at our home to go over the in's and out of how to puppy proof the house, and all be on the same level to training mind set within the family. Robin knows her stuff, she offered books to read and was available at all time for any questions. She was consistently on time and her passion for dogs is very strong. Having several dogs of her own she treats your dog in a very humane kind and loving manner to help develop a relationship of dog and owner as well as a companion! The training was very easy to pick up, without any confusion. After each training session she would issue a guideline of great detail how to continue the training we learned for that day. Our puppy had a bad resource guarding issue. Robin took the time to bring him into her home for several days to work on this issue without any added fees. I have recommended diamonds in the ruff to several other dog owners both at the park and or out for a stroll at the beach. Our experience with robin has been a great one hands down!

Couldn't be happier with the service and will definitely be calling again for future pet sitting needs! They are professional, reliable, friendly, trustworthy, and so much more! Riley and Judy are fantastic. They sent photos and updates at every scheduled walk so we could enjoy our vacation with peace of mind knowing they were in great hands.

Jenn took care of my Wheaten Terrier when we were away for a few days. I came back to a happy puppy who had clearly been well taken care of. I don't trust my dog with just anyone and I never use kennels. I will definitely be using Jenn in the future. She is a true animal lover and has a great work ethic.

The Elegant Pup

I would recommend The Elegant Pup as the best pet sitter you will ever have the pleasure of hiring!!! From the moment I spoke to the owner Merci Alese and then went to visit her establishment, to see if it was a suitable environment for my precious 12 year old kitty, I was more than impressed. She only sits for one pet at a time and your pet has their own spacious apt with all manner of comforts. I left my cat with Merci for a week with no worries, because from the moment I dropped her off she was immediately at ease since she was not being placed in a cage. Instead she had the run of this lovely space where she could roam and explore at will and where we brought all of her favorite things so that when we picked her up she was as happy as ever. She even looked like she might have gained a bit as a direct result of Merci's excellent care and attention to our kitty's needs. I will never leave my kitty with anyone else but The Elegant Pup and I recommend that everyone who needs a trusted pet sitter call Merci !!

Cheryl Funk has worked for me numerous times. She is a caretaker for my adult dogs and puppies at various times throughout the year. With gentleness and an understanding of a dog's needs, as well as having insight into the intricacies of pack behavior, she is well qualified to take care of these beautiful creatures. We will continue to hire Cheryl to walk and to train our puppies and our adult dogs. Best ever! Melanie McCarthy, Owner Cavachons From The Monarchy

I offer dog boarding in my home or yours(if your home is within 5 miles). Your dog will not be confined to a kennel all day as in regular boarding facilities. They will always have dog and human friends to play with.

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.
