I am so glad that I found Sara. She is my new go-to dog sitter! I took my dog over to her home and she was immediately at ease, running around in the fenced back yard. Sara watched my dog for three days and did great. Sara was able to give her space separated from her other dogs, which I had requested because my dog is sometimes skittish. When I picked my dog up, she was calm and happy, which is not usually the case (usually seems freaked out when I go away). I think Sara really put her at ease. I look forward to having Sara dog sit for me again!

Donna Andrews has done an excellent job looking after our dear cat. She has a genuine love for cats, founded in long experience, and will make a point of getting to know and appreciate the individual personality of any cat she cares for. Donna prepared conscientiously for her responsibilities with our cat, was meticulous in following all care instructions in letter and spirit, communicated regularly and fully about how things were going from day to day, and left a detailed written summary. We returned to find our cat doing beautifully well, happier after being in her care than with any of 3 other previous cat-sitters. Highly recommended.

Peggy takes great care of my kitties whenever I go out of town. I have eight cats who need lots of care. A few are on medication, others are very picky about having clean litter boxes and fresh water, and a couple are very scared of strangers, but I know I never have to worry when Peggy is caring for them. I always come home to a clean house full of happy cats. She also waters my plants and brings in my mail. I highly recommend her as a trustworthy and conscientious pet sitter who goes above and beyond the call of duty.

Liz was a great help when I needed to find a cat sitter on short notice during a holiday week. She has a lot of experience taking care of pets so she knows exactly what questions to ask. She even sent me pictures of my cat, Melanie, to put my mind at ease. I highly recommend Liz for any pet sitting needs.

I love the fact that you can see in Michele's face that she loves animals. She treats them as f they were her own and is very loving and kind to them. My little chichi cries when I go to bed without her. Michele said it would be fine with her if my little girl slept with her and would actually like it. I've had many pet sitters but she by far is the best ever and I highly recommend her. My dogs love her too and are happy and healthy when I pick them up.

I had Rose take care of my dog Rocco for one week. Rose kept me informed on a daily basis and was an outstanding pet sitter for my dog. She took pictures and videos with her and Rocco playing. I felt very comfortable and I knew Rose could get the job done at 110%. I would definitely recommend Rose for any type of pet sitting.

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!

Lisa is just so wonderful with my little pup! I have used a few different dog sitters, and Lisa is by far the most attentive and loving with my dog. Lola comes home happy and calm, so I know she is getting the attention and care I want for her while I am gone. Lisa is the best.

Patti has been my pet sitter for several years now. She always does an amazing job. She always sends me updates and lets me know how my animals are doing. Plus she brings in the mail and waters my gardens for me. I wouldn't trust anybody else to take care of my beloved pets.

For those who do not own a horse, Clearview has wonderful lesson horses and ponies for every level and all ages. Bonus: the indoor ring enables riding in all types of weather.

I've used these services for a number of years and all my dogs loved having the sitter come over to my house to spend some time with them while we were away. I never had to worry about my dogs while I was away and trusted the sitter to come into my home. I'd recommend Mr. Biscuits to come and take care of your dog.

The experience was wonderful for my dog Cyra and for us as her "parents". I was apprehensive about it at first because we have never had to find a sitter for our fur baby. We met Jordana a few days beforehand and Cyra was fine with her immediately. Cyra played with their two puppies as well. The first meeting went well. Jordana and I discussed what was needed to make Cyra feel at home and the price. The day we dropped her off....she was familiar with Jordana and her puppies. Cyra had a wonderful time, and we got pictures of her throughout our time away. That was a very nice touch. We will be using her again in the future and would also recommend her to anyone who asks.

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.
