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.

Suzanne was incredible to work with! Our puppy Seamus was a little off the wall. She calmed him down trained him to be a happy puppy and potty trained in 2 days! Highly recommended! Quick replies and so very kind!

I was dog-sitting for a friend for 11 days and Krystie was a life-saver. She came promptly every night for the "last" walk - was sweet and kind. The best was that she was extremely reliable. A great find! Highly recommend using her services.

Michael deserves the cat sitters' Purple Heart for scratches suffered giving our cat Thelonious 4 to 5 oral medications a day for homeopathic treatment of lymphoma while my wife was away. Our cat does everything to avoid medication but Michael was cool under fire as he picked up the cat from his hiding places and was very professional in delivering the medication. He was affable and relaxed under extremely difficult conditions. I hope his next cat sitting job goes easier.

Suki was very polite and responsive, and while she technically did the job we hired her to do, which was to feed my cats while I was away and empty their litter box; we, however, noticed upon return that the food bowls were filled with old food with new food simply placed on top. Common sense should urge one to change or clean the bowls if they are dirty. In addition, there was litter all over the floor surrounding the litter box. Lastly, while it was great to receive photos of my cats from each visit, they were all blurry and mid-movement which led me to believe that Suki was just popping in, feeding them and taking a quick snap, rather than spending any quality time with them as previously agreed upon. Perhaps cat sitting is just not for me and I prefer to have more attention paid to my pets while I am away.

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.

Bruce Stone and Interdyne International K-9 really saved the day. Eddie my 14 week old puppy was putting a tremendous stress on my family life especially since I work from home. He swooped right in and showed me how to take control of Eddie, fix his problems, adjust his environment and regain my lost balance. The difference is absolutely amazing. I couldn't be more pleased. Totally happy with the money I spent. Time and peace are both invaluable and now so is my puppy !

Jill is amazing. My dog loved her at "first sight". She is very responsible, flexible and sensitive. We just moved here and I have a 8 month old puppy which is still shy and a bit confused with the new environment. Jill takes it easy with him but also learns him to adapt. She is also very flexible when it comes to scheduling and always tries to find the perfect solution. I am very happy with her

I would highly recommend Erica for your pet sitting needs. We have two cats that we wanted someone to care for while we were on vacation. I frequently see her walking our neighbor's well-trained dogs and she was recommended by them. We were very impressed with her initial visit as she took detailed notes on the care and preferences of our pets. She was very thorough in getting to know what they needed while we were away. We thought it was great that she took the time to have us show her all of their favorite hiding places so that she could be sure to find them at each visit. We have hired her a few times now and feel at ease while we are away knowing our cats are being so well cared for.

What life-savers!! I had hurt my ankle and was unable to take my very large, rambunctious puppy for his walk. So I turned to thumbtack and I couldn't be more thankful for Your Dog's Best Friend! Not only were they able to accommodate a last minute/same day request, but they tired my fur baby out!! Very sweet people who absolutely love what they do! Thank you so much!!

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.
