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.

Sandra is the best pet sitter I have ever had. Great communication, very thorough, attentive to every detail, and really enjoys caring for your pet as if it was her own. She is my go-to sitter and I highly recommend her for all of your pet sitting needs.

Sam did our pet sitting exactly as we discussed at the times we agreed on. Knowing that we could depend on Sam to take care of our 3 cats gave us the peace of mind we needed to enjoy our time away. She texted us promptly with a message and a photo or two. We are highly satisfied with Sam’s service and recommend Sam for pet sitting.

Kelly was amazing!!! I always hate leaving my pets, but this time was especially difficult because we just lost our other dog a month ago. I was worried about him being alone for long periods of time or feeling abandoned. Kelly went above and beyond to make our pup feel safe! She sent pictures and stayed in touch with us the entire time to let us know he was doing fine. She also let the dog sleep in bed with her, which we greatly appreciate since he needs that sense of security. I can't say enough good things about Kelly! I hope she is available to watch our pup every time we go out of town. I highly recommend Kelly for all your pet sitting needs!!
