Stef looked in on my cat while I was away for 10 days. My cat was beautifully cared for, and even had some new toys when I returned. I will abolutely use Stef again the next time I need cat sitting.

This is an absolutely fantastic company. I was super nervous about leaving my puppy to be walked by a stranger but I have been so incredibly pleased with Waggy walkys. I've had two different walkers and both have been so trustworthy, kind, and reliable. I don't ever worry about my baby I know she's well taken care of and loved when I'm not home. On top of that their customer service is great. So so glad that I decided to do this!!! They are awesome here!

I needed someone to watch my cat while I went home for Spring Break. Dee did an amazing job for a great price and I felt completely comfortable leaving my baby in her hands. She is now my go-to pet sitter. Highly recommended!

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.

After I contacted Barking Trails, I got a response back right away. The owner, Adam and the woman that was going to be walking my puppy came to my house at my convenience. We went over all the instructions and training techniques we've been working on. They have also been really flexible with our changing schedules. Great company.

Crissi has been taking care of my cats (and watching my house!) whenever I go away for many years now. With her knowledge, overall capability and degree of integrity, I am able to relax and enjoy my vacation, knowing all will be taken care of. I rely completely on Crissi for pet sitting and can recommend her without hesitation.

I am a Dog Trainer in the Northern Virginia area. For the past four years, after I am done training with my clients, I send them over to Cupid Pets. I looked around at other dog walking and pet sitting companies and none of them meet my standards like Cupid Pets has for my dogs and previous clients.

We absolutely adore Christine's Pets, and don't know what we would do without them! They are always a pleasure to work with and have been extremely accommodating of our older dog's needs. We believe they perform an outstanding and personalized service and our pup adores them- and by the way, he's a great judge of character! I highly recommend Christine's Pets for all of your dog walking/pet sitting needs.

Jody was (and still is) a tremendous help! She came prepared with lots of great ideas and information, all of which were extremely helpful. I especially appreciated her advice on making mealtime a fun and educational experience. He has really taken to the games/toys to get his food, rather than gulping it down in 5 seconds. With her guidance, we have registered our puppy for his first kindergarten class. He is off to a great start! We are taking advantage of Jody's new service, in-home puppy sitting. We had hoped to take a vacation this summer, but with a new puppy it did not seem possible. Jody has a great service in which she will stay with your little one, in your home, and continue to work with them. No need for boarding! I am happy to recommend Jody to anyone looking for a wonderful trainer, who obviously loves puppies. I have already given her information to two friends with new puppies.

We used Petstigious Pets for cat-sitting, and plan to continue to do so well into the future. Shatiya is a clearly an animal lover as well as professional, organized, reliable, and communicative. She arranged a pre-meeting to get to know us, our cat, our house, and our routine. While we were on vacation, she cleaned the litter, put out food and water, played with her, and picked up our mail and packages. After each visit she sent full reports and pictures. She is by far the best cat sitter we've had yet.

Care for two indoor cats and two caged parakeets for a weekend This was the first time that we have used Debbie and this was the first time that these pets have been left since we got them four years ago We had a previous pet sitter experience a couple of years ago that was not good at all so we were hesitant about needing the service again.Debbie responded to our request very promptly on thumbtack and arranged for a meeting with us to discuss what we needed.she was very willing and eager and understanding with all of our requests. When we arrived home we were definitely not disappointed. Debbie exceeded our expectations. She was in touch with us via text message during the weekend each time that she came to the house to give us an update which we very much appreciated. When we arrived home we found the areas vacuumed the trash had been disposed of and everything was in order. She also had provided us with a very cute daily journal of each of her visits and more details as to what the pets were doing each time and how much they had eaten. Debbie even took care of refilling food containers on our front porch that we leave for the feral cats in the neighborhood. We would not hesitate to ask her back again to care for our pets and we highly recommend her to anyone in need of pet services. We have told Debbie that she could give our name and contact information to anyone who needed a reference

Working with Frederick Pet Buddies is the best! They care for my dog like she's part of their family. I trust them in my home too -- they have stayed overnight -- so my dog can feel safe and secure while I'm away.

We've been with Loudoun Pet Care for years. All of our fur babies love the treatment they receive from Tyler. Tyler is more like family than "just our dog walker." You won't go wrong giving him a chance with your fur babies.

I had to leave town for 3 days but didn't want to leave my Yorkie at a kennel. Shaki was the perfect solution. My doggie was able to stay at home at my condo In SoFi where he feels safe and Shakir visited him 4 times per day to feed, walk and play with him. She kept me updated with lots of photos and videos with location tracking of their walks. Shaki is very loving with pets. When I came home my doggie was calm and happy almost as if I had never left. I highly recommend Shaki's pet sitting services.

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!

If you ever need any dog sitting needs, Julie is the one to go to. She is affectionate and understanding to your dogs needs. We have three dogs, two are older and one is a puppy, and she kept them happy on each of their levels of comfort. Julie is very responsive as well if you ever have any questions or want a photo of your pets.

I had one a day 30 minute walks for my dog during the day and it went wonderfully! I received a picture every walk which I really appreciated and a run down of what they did. It was very comforting knowing my dog was in good hands and I trusted the team with access to my apartment.

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.
