I started looking for a sitter for my two small breed puppies because I was going out of town for Thanksgiving. I figured sitters would be booked early for the holiday so I started looking early October. Schantel reached out to me and her rates were the best I've seen so I automatically set up an appointment for a meet and greet. She came to my house and got a feel for the two of them. She told me she's a vet tech and I was sold! We decided that I would drop off my fur babies although she did offer to pick them up. As it got closer to Thanksgiving, Schantel would text me to check up on Mink and Mace. On Thanksgiving day I went to her house, which was easy to find. I packed toys, food, harnesses, and their crate. When I got there it turns out that she had already set up a crate for them. It was nice that she was so prepared and next time I know I won't have to lug that heavy crate around. During their stay she sent pictures and videos everyday which I really appreciated. I expressed to her that I would like to socialize them so she sent me videos to show me how well they were getting along with the other dogs and assured me that it was always supervised. When I came to pick them up, Mace, who's only 4 pounds, greeted me at the door with the large dogs that Schantel was watching. Clearly he thinks he's big too but I was happy to see him getting along so well with the other dogs, big and small. Since I'm still working on house training she gave me an update and the schedule that she used so that I would be able to go home and do the same. I was definitely happy with my experience and will be using Schantel anytime I need a sitter.

I’ve never corresponded with someone as friendly, responsive, and positive as Mark Shaver, the owner of Buckhead Paws. He quickly quoted me a fair price for pet sitting our cats within moments of me placing a project on Thumbtack, and quickly answered all my questions in a way that made it enjoyable to communicate with him. He walked me through the process of scheduling the pet sitting appointment and was patient with my questions. We set up a meeting and Mark showed up with our actual pet sitter to be, Kim. It was nice having the owner of a company take the time to come over to meet our kitties also. Both were really nice, and asked thoughtful questions as we showed them where everything was. It made us feel we were in good hands. While we were away Kim gave us daily photos and updates of our kitties, many of them funny, which were very much appreciated. They were often the bright spot of our day. Kim picked up packages as needed and even cleared our deck for window washers. We knew he was only a text away if we needed anything. But the true test was seeing how the kitties were when we returned. They were calm and cheerful, the house clean, even the trash emptied. We are really pleased with this service and will definitely use Buckhead Paws again.

Linda always does an excellent job with my two cats. She loves animals, so I never worry that they are not receiving excellent care while I am on vacation. I know she will show up and make sure they are fed in a timely manner, which is not always the case with some sitters. I highly recommend her.

Sarah is wonderful! I was nervous to find a pet sitter because I was always lucky enough to have family in town to take care of my cat Kate. But that wasn't the case anymore and luckily I found Sarah! She was exactly on time for our first meeting to get to know her. I went over everything and she took notes and asked questions. After each visit she let me know how Kate was doing and sent me some pictures. She went out of her way when I needed her and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a pet sitter. I have just relocated to a new state and will miss having Sarah to watch my sweet Kate!

My wife and I recently moved into a new home in a new city. We love to travel and are always looking for someone to look after our baby Jasper. Lori was referred to us by friends and was a home run. She is professional, courteous and trustworthy. Lori kept us informed via text and pictures while we were away. Couldn’t have asked for a better sitter. She is also very affordable.

Tara was amazing! It was my first time using a cat sitter, so I was a little nervous. But Tara exceeded my expectations. She kept me updated with pictures and notes. And, my normally shy cat seemed to take a liking to her! She made me feel completely at ease! Will definitely be using her services again!

Olivia is great. She is a very patient, kind, and knowledgeable instructor who challenges her students and helps them progress but at the same time is completely attentive, safe and knows when to slow the pace (literally!) She doesn’t only teach you to ride, she teaches you how to put on the saddle and bridle, how to communicate with the horse and how to care for and groom the horse. This is a great place to learn especially for anyone who plans to own a horse someday as she is very thorough. I am having so much fun learning here!!

Kat is an amazing cat sitter. She spent 3 weeks with my two bengal cats & bengal cats are a lot of work. She sent me updates and pictures during my travels abroad. My two bengal boys were super happy and loving when I returned. Kat did a great job with directions for training my boys. They didn't pick up any bad habits while I was gone! Thanks Kat so much for taking great care of my boys! Her service is outstanding!

Carol is fantastic! She is professional and timely. She is much more mature than most pet sitters around. Very reliable! She is comfortable with older dogs and cats as well as puppies and kittens. She says she can do fish and birds too! She can administer meds and handle emergencies like a pro.

With my service your pet is promised a loving and caring person that will care for the pet all day within the freedom of their own home to run and play as you never left. Proven fact have shown pets are most relaxed and less stressed out when kept at their home will owner is away.

I do two types of sitting, Overnight and Daily: Overnight: I will be caring for your animal while you are away for a number of days. The price for these services are charged per night and prices could vary depending on the behavior of the pet, for example if the pet is showing signs of aggression and dominance. Any additional time after 12:00p.m., the day of my extraction, will be charged a additional night. Cats: $30 for 1 cat, and additional $3 for each additional cat Dogs:$50 for 1 dog, and additional $5 for each additional dog Horses: $100 for 1 horse, and additional $20 for additional horses (PLEASE CALL FOR PETS NOT MENTIONED BIRDS, RODDENTS,ECT.)

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.
