Cat Sitting: Gretchen came for a home visit prior to my departure to review feeding and care instructions for 3 cats of all different ages and picked up a key. I was away for 15 days, Gretchen sent photos of the cats throughout the two weeks. I came home to 3 happy, healthy well fed and cared for cats, not to mention a clean cat box. I will definitely use her services again. I highly recommend A Paw Above.

We had planned on taking a family trip in early February and we were concerned on who would be able to take care of our doberman Tyson. I ventured into thumbtack based on a recommendation from a co-worker. Within minutes of submitting my request I got an offer from Mrs.Wanda. I had multiple questions which Mrs.Wanda responded too almost immediately. We proceeded to arrange a meet and greet to see how our dog would interact with Mrs.Wanda. Tyson and Wanda bonded immediately, I will never forget the energy she projected as we entered her house. Something about her felt just right and it was then when I realized we found our dog sitter. We must of changed the drop off and pick up time multiole times and never did Mrs.Wanda complain, 'Its OK baby, just call me and I'll be available!', talk about no stress for us!!! In addition to pet sitting Wanda provided regular updates of our pet status which let us completely enjoy our family vacation. We most definitely recommend Miss Wanda to anyone looking for a kind, reliable, responsible and loving pet sitter.  Thank you Mrs.Wanda for treatingTyson like your own pet!!

It was the most amazing experience i have ever had, they really took care of my beautiful babies like no other, very professional, Andrea did a very good job on my cats. I have been grooming my cats for over 5 years with different groomers but they have never showed the LOVE and CARE Maryelis Mobile Pet Grooming showed my cats. I'm in love with their service and every month I will be calling you guys. You guys are truly the best. The owner MaryEli its such a lovely person to talk to and she really knows best for your pet. I'm in love !! ❤️❤️💯

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.

Mona was awesome! She is a big animal lover, as was evident by her first introduction to our pets. She couldn't wait to pet them and love them up! She kept our separation anxiety dogs company in our hotel while we enjoyed a dog free day in Miami. I would recommend her for sure!

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?

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.

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.

Tai did not miss a beat and I was 100% confident leaving my "doghter" in her hands. Tai takes the extra time to ensure that she is taken care of, exercised doesn't feel lonely in my absence. I would recommend Tai to anyone who wants to know that they pet will be well taken care of in their absence.

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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring 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.
