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.

Michelle took care of our home and sweet dog for 10 days when we were on a road trip. She did everything we asked and left our home in even better condition than we did for her. Our dog was well looked after and in good spirits when we returned. She took every care to ask all the quirks about our pet and home so that we didn't have to worry when we were away. She gave updates and sent pictures to reassure me while I missed my dog. I highly recommend Michelle for any cleaning, home sitting, or pet sitting. She loves animals and is a very thoughtful person. The amount of money we paid Michelle was also so much lower than a kennel would charge with better service, since our dog loves being in our home best. It was a very good situation for us and well worth the money.

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!

I could not be any happier with how Robin helped us! Robin went way above and beyond while taking care of our dog while we were away. She was very accommodating and the grooming she gave to our chocolate lab was absolutely amazing! She will definitely be seeing me and my dog again. Thank you Robin!!

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.

She is a true animal lover. My dog loved her. I am leaving my dog with her over Thanksgiving and know she will be totally cared for and probably spoiled a little!

Erika is an amazing person who built her company from the ground up. She is always early or on time, always interacts with the customer (owner), LOVES what she does. Has great success training, loving, and interacting with the animals. Overall I rate this as excellent due to the fact that she must be an animal whisperer. Highly recommended for anyone who needs training, walking, pet sitting and any other pet related service!

Natalie is a wonderful, animal loving person who is very professional and detail oriented. She took the time to listen to our specific needs and requests and was very flexible with our shedules. Our pup loves to see her everyday and she was even kind enough to bring him his own blanket! That was special. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a pet sitter/walker.

Latoya was super responsive and on time for our initial meet n’ greet for pet sitting. This is what made her stand apart and give us peace of mind in choosing her to watch our pup. I can’t wait to update and provide more feedback upon our return

We have been leaving our Lab and Poodle in the care of Camp Whisker Wagon for years. Whether for an overnight,weekend or weeks at a time we LOVE how our dogs are treated like royalty! They always come home content & calm. It's clear that they get plenty of love & attention. We highly recommend CampWhiskerWagon to anyone that loves their pet & wants them to be cared for in a home away from home when needed.

We have used Lisa many of occasions and she has always gone above and beyond when watching our pups and taking care of my home when we go away. It is very hard to find someone that is trustworthy, dependable and responsible. Lisa definently has all of these qualities and more! We will be using her for all of our future dog sitting and house sitting needs. Thanks again Lisa, A.C.

Laura will be house/pet sitting for me next week. She came here to meet my pets and learn about the house. She was extremely friendly, professional and smart. She is also quick to respond to communications. She put our minds at ease because it is clear that she loves animals! We know our dogs and cats will be in great hands with Laura!

We have been using License to Leash for a little over a year and could not be happier. She is great! Our dogs love her and she has been extremely accommodating. She is the first walker who actually takes them on long walks and helps train them how to walk on leash (as compared to just letting them play in the backyard). Our neighbors have already started using her.

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.
