We've used Lara's pet sitting service many times, sometimes while we're gone for weeks at a time! We always come home to happy, well fed kitties and a clean litter area! Highly recommended!

Ana & Aneysi are super awesome. I have never had a pet sitter and I was very skeptical about leaving my Jaxson. The meet and greet went well. The girls responded immediately and made me very comfortable. The updates made me less anxious and overall I am a very satisfied customer. I will def use their service again and most definitely recommend them.

I used Michelle of Smooch Your Pooch when I went on a 10 day vacation. From the very start Michelle was extremely professional, bringing forms and detailing the needs of my kitties. She encouraged me to check in whenever I felt like it to see how my pets were and she sent pics to my phone while I was away. She spent time with my cats, not just feeding them and leaving, but interacting with them. She even got my shy cat to come out and say hi. I highly recommend her for your pet sitting needs.

Robin took care of our 3 cats with twice daily visits, for 3 days while we were out of town. One of the cats required the administration of meds. She also brought our mail in daily. Out initial concerns about allowing a stranger in our home were dispelled once we talked with Robin face to face. She was forthright in providing proof of her insurance and a copy of her PetTech Pet CPR and First Aid training. This, along with sharing more background information, made us feel comfortable in leaving our "boys", mail and home in her care. In short, we are very happy with the care Robin gave.

Katie has been working with me for a good 10 years now. She is amazing. The commitment, service, trust, and most of all the love and attention she bestows on my dogs is beyond words (had 3 when I first hired Dances with Dogs). Katie is part of my family. The best review is from the 4-legged ones themselves... Bijou goes goes crazy for the visits and simply adores Katie.... A few years ago while on a business trip, my ageing Lab had a heart attack and Katie went above and beyond by doing CPR and rushing him to the emergency vet. She gave me Jasper back. I will be forever grateful for her actions that saved him. And for everything she does... every day.... What more can a pet-parent ask for?

In describing Beths dog walking and pet sitting service, the only word I can use to describe it is spectacular. She has been taking care of my 2 shy and skittish schnauzers for over a year and they absolutely adore her. Prior to finding Mary Puppins Pet Nanny Service I had gone through several dog walkers with no success, as my dogs do not take to most people. As soon as they met Beth they fell in love. She has treated them as her own, with tremendous love and care and has gone way above dog walking and dog sitting. She has been a godsend and i would recommend her highly as do my dogs.

Andrya Underwood is awesome. When our family of cats grew to be seven (7) indoor cats we knew we could no longer ask our neighbors to watch them when we were away. I had met Andrya at Pet Supermarket in Hollywood and decided to interview her and a few other pet sitters. Andrya's initial visit was very positive and she was extremely professional and our cats took to her right away so we tries out her pet sitting service. We haves used Andrya's Animal House Pet Sitting Service for almost two years and are extremely satisfied. She always provides extra care for our cats and she texts us pictures to let us know they are happy and healthy. She also takes the time to play with them as well as bringing in our mail and taking care of other house hold requests.. We have never had any issues with her services - in fact she is extremely flexible and always accommodates our requests (many times with very little notice). We know we do not have to worry about our pets when we are away as Andrya takes care of them as if they were her own pets. If you have a need for a pet sitter I have recommended her to friends in the past and would always recommend her Pet Sitting Services.

Mae is a true professional and pleasure to work with. This was our first time using a pet sitter so we were understanding nervous. From the moment we met her we immediately felt comfortable and knew that our fur babies would be in good hands. We were right! She is extremely thorough and provides excellent detailed reports after her visit. We look forward to using her again and will recommend her to others!

Highly recommended for pet sitting. I used their services for almost a week while out of town. Mitch stayed in my home but you couldn't tell. No cleanup required. Our "Bella" was well cared for and even posed for pictures that Mitch sent us. 5 star service.

It's clear Gail cares about her clients and their pets. It's natural for us owners to be a bit gooey about our own pets, but to have a stranger treat your pet like it's their own is special. Very reasonably priced with a warm, sincere, and professional attitude. I'm not sure you can ask for anything more! Highly recommended!

I was unable to use Michele's Pet Sitting Service due to a change in our plans. However, We were quite impressed with her when she came to our house for a Meet and Greet and gave me three references which were very good. Perhaps we can use her if the future.

    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.
