I already rebooked! She was professional and also very friendly. It didn't feel awkward having someone in my home grooming my dog. She also included my curious three year old in the process! She left the bathroom cleaner than she found it. Highly recommend.

This was the first time using a pet sitter service for my horses. How lucky was I to come across Wesley and Mellisa's pet sitting service on Thumbtack . They both came to my barn ahead of my weekend away to watch my routine of care . While I was away they kept track of the weather and came early and brought my horses in ahead of time one day due to an impending storm.When I returned my barn was immaculate ! I also received daily pictures of my girls , if you are looking for a pet sitting service that goes beyond just feeding your pets while your away , and you want peace of mind they are the ones to call . I look forward to have them take care of my horses in the future .

Stephanie is wonderful! She took the time to really get to know me and my cats, and she sends photos and updates every day. I have found my new go-to cat sitter and would recommend her to anyone!

Julie is fantastic! She took great care of our cats and home. She even left a 'welcome home' gift for my family as well as for our cats! I highly recommend Julie with enthusiasm. She is the best pet sitter around!

Whenever we go away Patte watches our cats. It is so nice to be able to go away and not worry about the pets. Patte loves animals and it is obvious when you see her with our pets. We have an older cat who needs insulin twice a day in addition to needing fluids occasionally which Patte does like a professional. She does not just come in to feed and scoop but also spends quality time with all three of our cats. Patte is not only a professional pet sitter but she also volunteers with animal rescue groups. She is such a kind and loving person and we are so thankful to have her caring for our furry babies.

Yvonne was awesome. I've never felt more comfortable leaving my house and cats with someone. She made sure she saw both cats each time she visited and sent me updates during the week plus a lot of extra things my other cat sitters didn't provide me. Very reliable and I would highly recommend her!

    Chantelle and Mutt Butts are the most reliable and down to earth pet sitters. Chantelle was able to fit in my cat visits right away and always follows up with me on the same day of the visit. Best prices around! She also provides dog walking services to my girlfriend- which has also been a great experience. Our animals look forward to her visits

    Audreys is excellent! Extremely knowledgeable and professional. I have 3 dogs and Audreys came out prior to job and met with dogs and us. She went over and above with both our dogs and home. We have already used her services twice and have booked several more. Audrey is our go to pet sitter...she has become family. We are extremely selective when it comes to our babies and before Audrey only two people (family) have stayed with them. Audrey has been an angel. 100% Recommend!

    Karen is wonderful with my dog! Usually after the initial meet & greet I prefer to be at the first few visits until I know my dog and the pet sitter are comfortable with each other. But my dog took yo Karen immediately and I was able to skip that step very comfortably. My dog fell in love with her instantly, and he is usually a very cautious dog. And as dog lovers know, we can trust their instincts. Karen has been so flexible and goes above & beyond. I'm so grateful I found her!

    Emily has been taking care of our "baby" Belle for the past few years. There is nothing better than going on vacation and feeling so comfortable that our home and our pets are well taken care of. She takes such good care of Belle, and I think Belle is sad when its us coming through the door and not Emily. She spoils them and the house is as clean as I left it. I highly recommend Emily to everyone and anyone that loves their pets and doesn't want to put them in a kennel while you vacation!

    We have boarded our greyhounds with Carla many times and have always been totally satisfied with the care she gives them. We can go away knowing that Carla will take care of all the little details to keep our hounds safe, healthy and happy. She is one of the very best dog sitters we've ever met!

    Brenda did great for her first time. She spent extra time with my cat Jessie. My house was very signs of kitty litter on floors or smells through the house. We plan on having her again in the near future. We were very pleased that she would do the holidays.

    im a loving pet owner and would care for your pet....take them for walks and also playtime ..will petsit in your home..i also house clean if needed..


    I've interacted and dealt with every breed of dog that you could think of. I have two dogs myself at home and know all about taking care of these animals. My dog is Canine Good Citizen and Emotional Service Animal certified and has been through both intermediate and advanced levels of training. I trained him myself during the classes, which gave me a lot of experience with working with dogs. I'm looking for clients that need their dog(s) walked/cared for when they are not home.

    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.
