Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts 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.

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.

Reviews for Altamonte Springs pet sitters

If it was possible, I would give 100 stars to Scottie & Kathleen of Pookie Bros. Pet Sitting! It was a wonderful day that I engaged Pookie Bros to care for my 2-3 dogs & turtle. They are experts with pets of all types & breeds; totally experienced, dependable, trustworthy, reliable, love animals, ethical, and you can be sure that your pets will be loved & well cared for with every visit. When my beloved Rottweiller, Dakota, was in his last 6-hours of life, Scottie & Kathleen were my first call for help & support. When Dakota heard Scottie’s voice, I could see a peace come over him, as we carried him to the Vet for his final visit. When I sustained fractures that made caring for my pets difficult, Pookie Bros provided support & care for my pets, and assured that they would be well loved while I healed. I highly recommend Pookie Bros. for your pet sitting needs! They will become a part of your family, as they have mine, and your pets will thank you!

Lori and her husband took on a last minute pet sitting job for my three fur babies Karma, Misha, and Bimini. They woke up very early and drove about 2 hours to meet me and my kids in person before I left for the airport - well above and beyond and very much appreciated! My kids loved them instantly and I knew they were in great hands! Lori kept me posted on how they were doing while I was away, and even sent me pics. When I came home to happy babies, it was so obvious that they had been well cared for and loved. Lori is my new go-to for fur baby care when I need to travel!! 💜
