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.

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.

Walkies is an excellent pet sitting choice. I got pictures of my kitties each morning and evening. They were well cared for and she kept an eye out for my house and outside as well. Highly recommend this company.

Penny excelled my expectations! My kitties absolutely love her! She is very professional, more importantly a very loving and caring person. She texted me and snapped pictures of the kitties. I would recommend Penny for any type of pet sitting, she is a true animal lover

Sarah (All Creatures Great and Small PetCare) is a caring, knowledgeable, person who took great care of our shy cat Tuffy! She went above and beyond even cleaning up a couple of our long-haired cat's hairballs. She made sure Tuffy was fed and watered and her litter box was clean. Sarah also brought in our mail and newspapers! We will ask Sarah again to look after Tuffy when we go away. Even though we could choose only three items on the question above, we would also add value and punctuality. She is a wonderful, friendly communicator and updated us on Tuffy frequently when we were away. We highly recommend Sarah for pet sitting! Thanks Sarah!!!

Penny took care of our cat for 2.5 weeks. The job required 2 visits per day which included feeding the cat (defrosting wet food and adding dry food), changing water, and cleaning the litter box. Our cat is very skittish and doesn't do well with strangers (to the point where some of our friends have never seen the cat in person - she hides well:). However, it was different with Penny. The cat got used to her soothing voice and warm personality and they became best buds after 3-4 days. My husband and I were very happy, surprised, and relieved :)). We would definitely recommend Penny for pet sitting. She seems very honest and sincere; calm and kind - great animal lover. Thank you, Penny. Our vacation was free of worry. We knew our cat was in good hands. Sorry for her behavior when you cane to say 'bye'. She was just being herself :)))
