I have hired Helene multiple times to care for my 4-year old tabby, Izzie, and one time she also cared for our bearded dragon. Helene is extremely diligent about taking notes during the interview process and asks detailed questions about things that I would never have thought about. I truly appreciate how she leaves a note every day about her interactions with our pets. It is nice to come home and see what the furry kids were doing in our absence. Additionally, if you request it, she will send a text message each day giving a brief overview of that day’s interaction. She (meaning Izzie) can be somewhat skittish when people come over, and I like that Helene will make a conscious effort to find her and play with her. She will even provide massages for your pets. In addition to pet-sitting, Helene will also bring in your mail, newspaper, and turn on and off lights. I appreciate her thoughtfulness. I also give her an A+ for reliability. During our last trip in early February, it was during all the snowstorms and bitter cold, and Helene still came out to see Izzie each day we were gone. As you know, cats can be fairly independent and not necessarily need everyday attention. I would have completely understood if Helene would have decided to stay home, but nope... she came out every day. I have no reservations in hiring Helene again for our pet-sitting needs. I think if you hire her, you will not be disappointed in the service(s) you will receive.

Kitty was fed and watered as directed. Litter box scooped daily. Belinda went beyond the call to tidy up w/o being asked. Brought in my mail and newspaper. Even left me with a roll of pet waste bags. Stayed in touch each day via text messages. Very reasonable rates. I would hire her again.

Susan has been cat sitting for us for over ten years and we have only positive things to say. First, she did cat sitting for one cat and now for our three. She always asks how they are doing along with detailed questions so she knows what is going on with them, their food and medicine issues, etc. She is easy to work with, 100% reliable, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and experienced. She has a very calm demeanor which our cats respond well to and she spends the time to play with them and give them attention while we are gone so that they are happy and in good spirits when we come home.

Jackie took care of our dog, cat, and rabbit when we were out of town. She was very professional during our first meeting and left a report of how the pet sitting went. We look forward to using Muttsley's again.

I cannot say enough great things about Dina. Dina is my first pet sitter and from the start she made me feel very comfortable. Dina makes sure to send text messages and pictures to let me know how my pets are doing. My dogs are not the easiest, and Dina has such compassion that within a day my dogs consider her part of the family (and so do we). I HIGHLY recommend Dina!!!!

Susanne is a cat whisperer: even my shy 14 yr old fur baby came out to get petted by her. She sent pictures and updated us daily so we could enjoy our vacation. Our house was in tip top shape when we came home. Great pet sitting service!

I have utilized From My House To Yours pet sitting service for more than six years now. Karen and her team have taken excellent care of my dogs and my home. They have provided pet visits during the week while my husband and I are at work and also when we are on vacation. Karen and her team are loved by my dogs. My dogs look forward to seeing their pet sitter and I am confident of the care that is provided to my dogs when I am away from home. I highly recommend the service they provide and I am confident of the love that they show to the pets in their care.

Lisa has been my pet sitter for over 4 years now. Loyal, trustworthy and dependable are her 3 greatest attributes and the most important part is my dogs just love her! She is just great with them! She has even rushed one of my dogs to my vet when she was at my house pet sitting. My dog cut herself on my fencing deep enough to require stitches. I highly recommend her!

I hired Barb Carter to take care of my cat for a week. She was terrific. I received daily updates about how my cat was eating and how active. My cat had no trouble adjusting to Barb and went right to her lap. I will definitely hire her again. I felt relieved to have left her in such capable and caring hands.

    Mike is professional, punctual and trustworthy. He did a great job taking care of two indoor cats and a feral colony of 10 outdoor cats while I was out of the country for several weeks. He sent pictures and updates nearly every day. Would hire again without hesitation.

        Precious Pet Sitting

        • 26 years in business
        About

        I am what I guess you'd call a "one man band". When you hire me, you get ME every visit meaning I am the only person with your key and I make the visits personally. Some services have different employees coming and going in and out of your home or apt. I certainly would not like that at all. I do have 2 extremely reliable people as backup in the unlikely event I would become ill while you are away.

        Q & A

        Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts 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.

        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.
