I cannot say enough about Lucretia Jeffrey. She came into a home occupied by a disabled man and not only cleaned a filthy house but cleaned out his dog's kennel and did laundry! She also came on a day when everything was closed due to 10" of snow because she knew how badly the house needed to be cleaned.

We have a 6yr old black and tan coonhound, a 4yr old American Leopard Hound, and a 3 yr old Great Dane in our family. I enjoy and love the companionship of a loyal dog. Roxy, our black and tan, was my 1st coonhound, got her at 6 weeks from a sketchy breeder (didnt know at the time). I put my heart and and soul into this dog, every spare second i could get was spent training, shes the most hard headed dog I ever met. I almost gave up on her, but after a long and frustrating 14 months, i was finally able to flip a switch, and shes been treeing ever since. Over 360 coons behind her to date. I trust her more than most people I know which is hard to beat and that kind of loyalty is priceless. I provide basic pet sitting, possibly a few days of care at my home, basic training, commands, i can break your dog of pulling you down the street, coon/squirrel/pheasant/ and waterfowl training. I've also efficently trained retrievers, labs, pointers, spaniels, danes, redbone, mountain curr, doxin, shepherds, and the list goes on. I prefer to work with medium to xl dogs. Nothing more frustrating or embarrassing than your dog dragging you down the street chasing a rabbit. Let's break those bad habits.

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.

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.
