Vicky was great! She not only took great care with all of our animals, she handled my anxiety well! We received photos and notes every day with updates of the animals and how they were doing. I told her not to worry about one of my super shy cats because if she tried to find her, it would stress her out more than just being left alone...well, the first day I get a picture of that cat just chillin with Vicky! When we came home we were greeted with an, "Oh...it's you. You're back" bored look from the animals...that was GREAT! I knew she kept them so happy they were not pining away for us or stressed out. I had used another pet sitter for seven years due to convenience, but the animals seemed stressed when we returned. With Vicky, everything was great.

How do we love Melina? Let us count the ways! I don't often write long reviews like this, but she is worth it and we think every family with pets should have someone like Melina. First of all - we want the world to know about her! She truly cares about our pets, booking her is super convenient, and her service goes beyond pet care. She looks out for our house and plants, loads the sheets in the washer when she leaves, and manages the trash bins if we're away on trash pick-up days. The last time she was here, she took the kitchen trash out for us. We have a dog door and fenced yard, and she even picked up after the dogs the last time she was here (totally not a requirement for us!). She doesn't complain if our cat has an accident, and she's never charged us more for the little extras. We have 2 large dogs and a cat, and she always asks questions if she notices something is amiss. My husband and I tend to be last minute planners (we do the best we can, and I don't recommend it!), but have never once had an issue booking Melina when we're in a bind - that's because even when she's got a full schedule, she does what she can to work around her other commitments to fit us in. We've actually only met her in person one time for the initial meeting a couple of years ago. She makes it super easy, by being extremely responsive and using common and current technology - text message, email, Thumbtack, spreadsheets, and Venmo. She doesn't mind when I send long email updates or send a spreadsheet if we need to coordinate due to one or two-week long trips. She always sends an update and photos of the pets every time she arrives and leaves. Finally, she didn't originally have a frequency discount, but when we asked about it, she created one for us. Melina is a rockstar and comes highly recommended from a grateful pet family! Thank you so much, Melina!

Caroline is always there when I (my dogs and cats) need her, taking excellent care of them, reporting any problems to me as soon as she notices something, and taking care of my home, too! My dogs love her and absolutely go nuts for their "walkies"!

Debbie provided outstanding care of my cats, and did all she said, sending video clips and photos and text updates on how they were. She was caring and attentive, and they responded threefold. I've not ever had such a worry-free time with a professional pet sitter and will most definitely work with her company again in the future.

We had two chocolate labs that Waggy Walkys took care of for 4 years. They were very dependable and my dogs loved them. They walked and feed the dogs everyday and when we were out of town on vacation or business Waggy took care of them as well. As my dogs got older and sick, I saw a very sensitive side to our walker. She helped with administering the medicine and called during the day to let me know how they were doing. My dogs are in heaven now and when we get our next dog we will call on Waggy to be a part of our family. I recommend Waggy to my family and friends.

Jodie has been fantastic with the information and training she provides. She is very organized with her puppy classes and provides additional information on puppy care at the end of each class. She also came to our home for an individual training session and was very insightful and helpful with tips on house training and providing tips on our puppy setup, schedule, and obedience training. She has been very helpful and is clearly very experienced.

Dee, the owner of Romes Paws, is AMAZING. A neighbor recommended her when we had a very last-minute need for a pet sitter. Within an hour, I had confirmation from her and a VERY reasonable rate. She spent the whole morning with our puppy and had pictures and a full update to share when I got home. Our puppy ended up getting sick a few days later and needing intensive veterinary care. Dee is a vet tech so we contacted her immediately and she gave plenty of advice and offered to help us provide care for him when he is ready to come home. She is a true animal lover and is so responsive to her clients. Other services I contacted only offered walks, not day-time pet setting. They also required a very formal home visit before they would work with us. By contrast, Dee was really flexible and handled everything quickly over email. I can recommend Romes Paws wholeheartedly to everyone!

Ray was fantastic working with our two dogs. Maggie, a yellow lab was no problem but Skeeter was another story. She was a rescue dog and has always been fearful of strangers and would hide under our bed. Ray worked with her for hours, laying on the floor coaxing her out and to trust him. We went away for two weeks and Ray fed and walked them every day. He was the only person outside the family that Skeeter would run to when he came to the house. He provided us with daily updates, text messages even photos. We knew we found the best person to care for our dogs. We cannot recommend Ray and Christine's Pets highly enough. They deserve more than 5 stars!!!

Absolutely wonderful. Gennaro almost immediately responded to our request and came to our house the same day to do a visual and service estimate. The price was absolutely reasonable and his service was prompt and professional. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone in need of lawn care.

I couldn't be happier with Eileen. I had a lot of anxiety about leaving my 11 week old puppy in the hands of someone I didn't know, but Eileen has put all my worries and fears to rest. She is professional and caring. I would highly recommend Ma's N Paws to anyone in need of pet sitting!

I needed a gate done within 24 hours for my horses. Kelcey and his team showed up asap, got the job started and finished within the time period I needed it done. He was respectful with my needs/wants, and my gate turned out excellent. I will be coming to KGYardworx for more of my landscaping needs!

Debbie cared for my six parakeets for 10 days. She is a gentle, meticulous, and caring individual who goes the extra mile to care for the animals. I received regular updates and was able to enjoy my vacation without worry. If you are looking for a warm and resourceful pet sitter, I highly recommend Debbie Swindall.

I returned to my home in Virginia after having been out West for a few years, caring for my parents. Upon my return, I learned that my closest friend had just weeks to live. She wanted me to be with her. At the same time, my little 18 month old dog was not well. We still didn't know exactly what was wrong, but with increasing frequency, she had severe bleeding out of both ends! It turned out to be a serious autoimmune disorder, and she must receive pretty close attention because symptoms are subtle until it is a life-threatening emergency. I was torn, knowing that my friend had two cats and I couldn't take my dog with me. She requires medications and a special, home cooked diet. I placed a notice for an emergency, 24-hour pet sitter who could take my dog in their home, because she wasn't well enough to be alone. I received many responses. I chose Nikki partly because of the caring message she left me, and I was impressed with her medical background. Upon meeting Nikki, I felt reassured, and appreciated her directness and honesty. I felt very little trepidation about leaving my little dog in her care for what could have been a few weeks. Finding Nikki was a gift. Trusting her with my little dog came easy by the second day. She always made time to talk with me when I called to check on my pup, and the details she told me helped me to know that she was keeping a close watch on the little one. Her love for animals is very apparent, and she notices everything. Nikki has, on several occasions, taken my dog into their home on very short notice, and on other occasions, has kept her a day or two longer than planned, again without prior notice. (A couple of times, my home cooked meals for the dog ran out, and Nikki cooked up a batch without being asked.) Nikki is very knowledgeable concerning medical issues and treatments, and I NEVER worry when my dog is with her. My pup enjoys every second with Nikki and her family, and it's a special treat for her to go there. She is well socialized during those visits, with Nikki's family and seven pets, with neighbors and friends, and with other pets that Nikki sometimes has at her home. I have gifted my dog with a 24-hour stay at Nikki's home on quite a few occasions, even when I didn't need a pet sitter! Nikki has far exceeded my expectations of a pet sitter, and I've always received from her so much more than my money's worth. I highly, highly recommend Nikki. She is skilled, patient, reliable, honest and caring; she notices every detail, and she LOVES animals! I'm so thankful to have found her.

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.
