Lori was absolutely wonderful! We contacted her pretty last minute to dog sit our 6 dogs for a week. Not only did she happily take on that challenge, but she also offered other cleaning and organizing. services which we took her up on. It was sooo nice to come home to a clean, organized house with happy dogs! My closet has never looked so great!!! Very highly recommend Lori!

Purr-fect Penny took excellent care of my 4 cats. She really loves cats and spends some time with them to help them not feel lonely when you're away! I give her 5 stars and would recommend her services to everyone.

I am the owner of a very energetic Black Labrador. I knew that I had a dog with high energy and needed professional help with training my puppy. I found Martha Bernal through a friend at work who was happy with her dog training. Martha guided my puppy through ten sessions of puppy training (basic puppy obedience). I was very pleased with her obvious love of dogs and immediate results with each lesson. Martha has a gentle, effective approach to training dogs and my dog responded very well to her training sessions. The end result for me was that my Labrador became a lot more easy to manage because he understood the commands (requests) that I made such as "Come" "Sit" "Stay" "Leave it" and he also stopped jumping up on people. I enjoyed seeing my dog learn and am very happy with the dog training that Martha provided to my dog. He remembers everything she taught him and it makes our family happy to have a well trained big dog. I would recommend her highly to anyone considering a dog trainer.

She is the perfect sitter we could ever ask for. She watched our cats twice when we went on vacation. The cats are comfortable with her. She is also very nice and she communicates very well. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a pet sitter

Esme did an excellent job grooming my two cats in my home! She was nothing but kind and caring of my petrified, very anxious cats. She somehow put them at ease and it was so great to see the care and the pride she puts in her work! She did an amazing job with them! Also, She was very responsive and reliable and kept me posted ever since the moment I decided to schedule with her! We will definitely be calling her to return again!!! Thank God we found her!!! My Persian Kitties are now mat-free and look so happy with their new haircuts! Thank you, Esme!!!😻😻

Sue was great to work with and immediately put our minds at ease from the first phone call. We are currently vacationing in the Bradenton area for the month of January and required a dog sitter during a day trip to Miami. Sue responded to our request on Thumbtack and the rest is history. She took great care of our Miniature Schnauzer while we were away for the day. He was walked, fed and given lots of love and attention. The photos and texts with updates was reassuring and a real bonus. We would highly recommend Sue and would definitely reach out to her again if we need a dog sitter in the future.

Great pet sitter and dog walker. Rhonda has been taking care of my dog since I had him and she is really great with him and goes above and beyond just walking and house sitting. Her focus is always the well being of the animals she takes care of.

Thank goodness I found Kendra! She was a pleasure to work with during her stay at my home with my (7) cuddly but irresponsible dogs. She always showed up when she said she would and always communicated with me daily and sent pictures of my babies. A truly lovely lady to work with! Kendra will always be my "go-to" pet sitter, I hope she is always willing to take us on too!! A genuine pleasure to work with. Thank you so VERY much Kendra (hugs).

Martee always goes above and beyond when she cares for our 3 pups. They love her so much and we have total peace of mind when we're gone. It's wonderful to have her not only watch the dogs but also housesit. We plan trips every 2-3 months and Martee is always on time, handles emergencies with ease, communicates often with us while we're gone. We always come home to a spotless home and happy pups. She's the best!!

We took our pet to Cheyenne and her family for a "trial run overnight" before leaving her next week for several days. The visit went very well. Our dog came home happy, stressfree and exhausted. She loved playing with Cheyenne and her family and pets. Highly recommend.

This is a respectable and compassionate professional pet caretaker. Eleanor "Cookie" provides the specific care I need for my diabetic cat, Ikee. He needs insulin twice a day and Cookie did not hesitate, where other pet sitters did. That, to me, is the difference between a sitter and a professional caregiver. Your pet family is in excellent hands with her!

I like working with V.I.C. because the pet sitters are professional and genuinely care about the work they do. My dog loves her sitter (Gabby) and I love that Gabby keeps me updated about how things were each day. We use a notebook to write to one another. The huge benefit of using a service like this is the dependability of always knowing someone will be there to walk my dog. I don't need to scramble for alternatives if something comes up.

Linda's Critter Sitters

Linda was pet sitter (stayed in our home, too) to our cocker spaniel for at least 5-6 yrs before his death Fall 2017. We never worried about the house or Lexus (our dog) any time Linda was there. She was attentive to changes in L’s routines and behaviors and updated us if she felt she needed to do so. She had been his groomer for several years before, therefore, knew his temperament and likes/dislikes. Linda stayed with Lexus for periods of 2 days to over 2 weeks. We always came home to a happy dog and a home as clean (or cleaner) than when we left! Of course, as you would expect, there were a couple of “out of the ordinary” situations Linda ran into. She was resourceful in solving them or called for our help if needed. We loved the occasional pictures she sent assuring us our beloved pet was doing well. Linda would still be our pet sitter today if Lexus were still with us. Should we decide to get another pet, she will be the first person we call for sitting services.

I loved getting an email from Megan every day when she checked in to my house and when she completed her visit. She sent pics of my cats every day! When I got home she had not only swept up the cat litter around the boxes, I’m pretty sure she swept up the fur tumbleweeds! I definitely recommend Pup Club and will be using them again when I go out of town this fall!

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.
