Sarah from Pet First Pet Care Dog Walking & Pet Sitting offers a phenomenal service!! She is quick to respond and very accommodating. She quickly connected me with Amanda her assistant who offered an equally phenomenal customer service. When your pets are truly your family, its tough to trust them to others, but this duo left me at ease & I was able to enjoy my trip out of town. I plan to begin using them regularly! I highly recommend them, and something tells me my two dogs do too.

I was very nervous about leaving my cats with a pet sitter for the first time as I have a 17 year old cat who requires daily medication. Eve sent me pictures and updates the entire week and I was confident in her ability to handle my "boys".

Sherry is a wonderful pet sitter. She loves all pets, unusual pets too. Our daughter has a menagerie of animals. We have two Roborovski Dwarf Hamsters, a hedge hog, a tropical fish tank and a goldfish tank and a Flying Squirrel. Many of our pets have different feeding instructions and enjoy fresh veggies and fruit, that needs prepared daily. Sherry was very attentive to all of the different instructions for caring for each and everyone of our daughters pets while we went to visit my mother. We were only able to take our two dogs to grandmas but Sherry would have loved them too.

Meaghan has been an awesome sitter for our puppy. She's always on time and sends us updates on her general well being and photos through the day. It has been such a pleasant experience working with her.

Judy was really accommodating when we were in need of a pet sitter. My high energy dog was exhausted from playing all weekend with her pup, it was wonderful! After a long weekend at a wedding, all of us got to come home and relax including the dogs! I would recommend Judy for her service.

Iris is amazing! She loves animals and seems to treat each and everyone like her own pet. When she sits for my 2 cats, she always shows up with a toy for them. She also takes care of me-makes sure I don’t have to worry while I’m away. She sends a text as well as pictures while she is with them. If you use Iris as your pet nanny, your animal will be very well cared for!

Emily has impressed me so far with her professionalism. I have had other pet sitters before who are not as prepared as her. I haven't even met her for the first visit and am in love with her organization and attention to detail!

I had hired Linda to pet and house sit and had to cancel because I had a severely broken foot and couldn't travel due to surgery. I told her that she had set her time aside (she called to make sure we were still scheduled because she had received another offer, so I know she turned work down), so I was still planning on paying her. Since she knew I would be recovering from surgery and the rest of my immediate family was still going to have to travel for a dance competition, she came over during the day to help me out post-surgery. She helped with the pets and anything else I needed to have done. She stayed until my mom came to take over the evening shift. I can't sing her praises enough. My family and animals love her, and she goes the extra mile. I am happy to leave such an outstanding person an excellent recommendation!

Highly reccomend! Michael watched my two cats over thanksgiving while I was home with family. He was very professional and has a real passion for animals. My male cat is afraid of most men, but he was very comfortable with Michael on the first visit. I could tell the cats were very well taken care of while I was gone. I have worked with several other pet sitters in the area and could tell a noticeable difference in my cats behavior after being watched by Michael compared with others. They were much happier when I got home. I will definitely be working with him again!

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.
