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 Boca Raton pet sitters
Melissa R.
My petting sitting experience with Kathy was great!! Being new to South Florida, I was a bit nervous to find a new pet sitter. After reading the wonderful reviews, I decided to give Kathy a try and she did not disappoint!! She came over for a meet and greet prior to the actual pet sitting and my kitties just loved her. She also had an assistant to help while she took a much needed vacation and Evette was wonderful. I would definitely recommend Love at First Sit!!!

Robin was great. She met and made friends with the cats, then sent me pictures while sitting. She watered my plants as well, and I didn't spend a moment worrying about my pets. I will surely call her again.

Just new to FL, I hired Serenity Pet sitting to stay with my 2 GSDs for 16 days, while we were out of the country. Needless to say, I was crazy worried. However, she sent pics each day and texted twice a day. The dogs loved her, because they had a playmate. When we arrived home, dogs were great, house was fine, I will use her again.

I have three large dogs (Rottweiler, Pitbull and Great Dane mix), that do not like us being away from home, and Serenity Pet Sitting did a great job with my 3 dogs. They immediately took to her. My great dane mix is deaf and she actually did research on the mix breed so that she better understood him and how to handle a deaf dog. I would certainly recommend Serenity and look forward to using her in the future.

Paws down a perfect pet sitting experience! I could not be any happier with the choice to have Libby watch our little princess Layla. From the very first meet and greet Libby has been so wonderful. She is a true professional who obviously loves what she does. She’s punctual, communicative and just all around fabulous. I am so thankful to have found Libby and look forward to using her for years to come!
