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.

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.

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!!!!

We are so lucky to have found Stephanie as a trusted caretaker for our 2 dogs. They absolutely adore her. We have used her several times for dog sitting in our home while we are out of town. It's so nice to be able to relax knowing our boys are in good, loving hands . She is very responsive & professional. I would highly recommend using Stephanie for reliable care for your pups!

Martin is fantastic. He cared about our rescue beagle from the beginning, and made amazing progress on his first visit. It will take time to bring our beagle to where he can be a dog and not a guardian, but if anyone can do it, Martin can. We highly recommend Martin and Black Dog K9 Training and Pet Services LLC.

Michelle groomed my 15-year-old dog, who suffered from arthritis and had bad back legs. Brownie had medium-long hair that shed like crazy and hadn't been professionally washed or brushed for years. After 90 minutes, she emerged from Michelle's van looking clean and sleek. I've recommended her service to my pet-sitting customers. It was a little pricey, but you get convenience (especially for dogs averse to car rides) and a groomer with a lot of experience and knowledge.

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!

Paula was absolutely phenomenal. I recently was working 12 hour days for 2 weeks straight and needed a dog walker to take my 2 dogs out twice a day. I hired Paula off of Thumbtack and wow I couldn't have asked for a nicer, incredibly reliable, and trustworthy dog walker. She passed along updates on the dogs and always kept me in the loop on the pups. She was very kind and very passionate about what she does. I would give her 10 stars if I could. Paula is definitely my go to dog walker from here on out and I passed out a couple of her cards to my neighbors with dogs. If you want a great dog walker, do yourself a favor and hire Paula!!

I was desperate for a dog walker when my local high schoolers went off to college. Todd has been great. Wally, my kind of tough mixed breed shelter dog really likes him and Todd has never let me down.

Four Paws Pet Sitting has been a lifesaver to me and my husband. We both work very sporadic hours and they have been very accommodating to help get our dogs out on long days. My dog can be challenging at times but both Denise and staff are experienced working with animals. I trust them fully!

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
