This is my first time ever using Thumbtack and I was a little bit skeptical, but I went ahead and booked Stef's cat sitting service as her reviews seem to be very good. At first, I booked basic cat visiting service. However, just the day before the trip, my cat got an abscess burst. I had to take her to the vet and requested some extra services from Stef, but she was very accommodating. My cat seems very happy when I'm back home, food, water and litter pan well taken care of. Stef sent me messages everyday to update me on my cat's condition. Plus points in Stef's services: responsiveness and quality. She did everything to make sure my requests are fulfilled. I can't thank her enough for putting my mind at ease while being away and my cat was sick. Overall five star service!

After a week of working with the Walk with Renzo and Ruby team, we have seen a noticeable improvement in our (already happy and energetic) puppy - he is walking better on the leash, more responsive to commands, and generally just happier when we come home from work. The members of the team that have worked with Archie have gone above and beyond every single day to provide an amazing and social experience for our puppy. We cannot recommend them enough!

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!

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!

Vicki was a wonderful trainer who managed to help us train our 1yo rescue, Penny. She provided tips, advice, and made amazing suggestions to practice while not in training sessions. In the course of 6 weeks, Penny learned several obedience commands (stay, leave it, wait, etc) as well as tricks (sit, down, paw, crawl, etc.) Penny was difficult to teach when we first got her and although I have had a dog before, I have never had a puppy/younger pup and she wasn’t a good listener until we saught help from Paw Patrol of VA, LLC. Vicki was very flexible with our schedule, understanding of our ongoing frustrations in trying to teach her obedience, and was able to help us change our body language and tone to teach Penny what we wanted her to do. After the first 2 sessions, Penny recognized Vicki when she came to our home and LOVED school (mostly because she loves attention, praise, and training treats). I am so thankful my husband and I agreed to get a trainer for Penny and we really lucked out with Vicki. Thank you Vicki, Brittany and Sadie for your kindness. We would gladly hire Vicki again in the future and recommend her to others in the area!

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.

Our fur babies (4-year old Lab Mix (w/anxiety issues) and 10-year old Puggle) spent the weekend with Cupid Pets sitters Bruce and Mary Lou and their lovely puppy Phoebe! Our pups had a blast!!! So much so, they didn’t want to leave when it came time to pick them up. We will certainly be using Cupid Pets service again for dog sitting and walking in the future!

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.

I use Tails to Scales for daily mid day walks, periodic evening walks when I'm working late and in-home dog sitting when I travel. My dog loves her walker and I know that she is in good hands.

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 life long dog owner. I have tried different businesses for grooming but I was looking for something different and something better for our current dog. Luca is our great Pyrenees - mix, rescue. He is an amazing dog but with his "guard dog" nature, he reacts when faced with dogs he is not familiar with. This trait meant we could not send him to the grooming options offered in the local pet stores. I found "Happy Paws" through "Thumb Tack" during a google search. I did not have to wait before I heard from Happy Paws. From the first contact, through my entire experience, I was communicating with the owner and then the groomer. Happy Paws has impressed me, as their years caring for animals has grown and developed into an amazing well executed business. They do not leave any stone un-turned. They have thought of everything. Every improvement and upgrade they have made, over the years, stems from the their interaction with their clients and the animals. Our first visit included a visit from the owner, Angela, and the groomer, Reena, who have worked together for years. Angela took the time to make sure I was comfortable with our first experience. I truly enjoyed her visit. She is very easy to talk with and so good at listening to all my question and/or concerns. As for the grooming experience, it deserves 5 stars as well. Luca is 76 lbs so I was so curious how the groomer would be able to bath and trim such a large dog - one who doesn't like water/baths. However, nothing fazed Reena. She handled Luca with confidence and as a result Luca had less anxiety because he knew he was being cared for and that Reena could and did handle him with great care. There is so much more I can share about our positive experience. But I will end with the fact that Luca looks beautiful and we cannot get enough of his soft fur and gorgeous looks! I am so grateful to Happy Paws and I HIGHLY recommend Happy Paws to every dog owner!!

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.

I felt very comfortable leaving my cats in Jill's care. One of my cats has some health issues and is on several meds and the fact that she is a Veterinary Technician was reassuring. No accidents, and both cats were happy upon our return.

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.

My pet sitter was Gray Akers, and I left her in charge of three elderly cats for AN ENTIRE YEAR. I never worried once. When I came back all was good, and even after she wasn't pet sitting, she came by to help me trim toenails!

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.
