It's my first time using the pet-sitting service from a third party website (10 days, 1 ragdoll kitty) and was very happy with Donna's service - Donna is very responsible and caring, she fed and played with the kitty, scooped the litter box during every visit, and sent photos of the kitty from the visits, recommended for anyone looking for pet sitting service!!

Debbie was wonderful. She was very organized and thorough in taking notes and making sure she knew exactly what I needed her to do for each of my cats. One of my kitties has a lot of special needs including requiring to be given IV fluids every other day. Debbie was willing and able to take on the task of her care. She gave all my kitties excellent care and sent me pictures of them every day as well as updates on how they were doing. She clearly genuinely cared for their well being. My cats are skittish and they all came out of hiding for her which speaks volumes to how comfortable they felt around her. I highly recommend Debbie and will use her again for pet sitting needs.

Our dog does not warm easily to people she doesn't know, but somehow Pam managed to make fast friends with her! We could tell that our pets were well cared for in our absence. And we really appreciated the frequent text updates. We will definitely use Pam's Pet Sitting Service again.

Kayla is awesome! We enrolled our two and a half month old Doberman Pinscher puppy in training classes learning how to do basic comands. She is very flexible with our schedule and we meet at a local park to do our training. Kayla connected with our puppy immediately. After our first class she was successful in teaching our dog the basic sit and stay. She really focuses on us the owners how to teach our puppy the correct way to train our dog. We have had a total of four classes and we have been successful in teaching our dog sit, stay, lay, come, paw, heel, long leash training and walk wonderfully on a leash! Since we meet at a local park there are lots of distractions like people, children, other dogs and even a horse and she was able to keep his attention and keep him focused on the tasks at hand. I would recommend her to anyone! I wish I knew about her sooner for my other pups!

Alyssa was very nice. She tried but our cat didn't do so well with a dog groomer. We need to have a cat specialist next time for our cat that got upset-even though Alyssa was very nice.

We have never used a Pet Care professional before, our families have always been able to help out when needed. I could not have asked for anyone better to take care of our baby while we are not home. We honestly feel like they are part of our family now and know that we can trust the lives our our little one, soon to be two, with Christina and Tony.

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.
