Hi, I'm Chuck Eisenbies. I'm a retired military veteran and have been a dog owner for 33 years: I love dogs-they respond kind! I will give your dogs loving attention and excellent care, as my local veterinarian can attest. I live and co-own with my wife a large townhouse in the Baltimore Federal Hill neighborhood – it is located close to Federal Hill Park, Henry Street dog park, Riverside Park, and the Locus Point dog park. I can provide daily outings, exercise, play, and obedience training. I currently care for my wife's Golden Doodle, Sadie, who is 6 years old; and I am a Guardian parent with my wife for a breeding 3-year old female Sheep-a-doodle, Patches. They are both adorable. Previous dogs I have cared for , God bless them, lived to be 15 years old and my wife and I miss them: Jacques, a Standard Poodle, and Scampi, a mix. They have all been loved and they have thrived. I am available as indicated to provide excellent care for your dogs, including during times of virus pandemics as I strictly follow CDC and State of Maryland guidelines (note that pet care is an essential function). I have no breed preferences because I love all dogs. Before sitting or walking a dog I would want to meet the owners and their dogs in their homes, to confirm we mutually like each other and verify we are compatible (similar to a job interview). I would want to know any health issues and any special needs I must attend to while the dog is in my care. I would also want contact numbers to call in the event of an emergency, as well as the dog's veterinarian address and phone number. I would also like to hear about any obedience issues, treat preferences/restrictions, or anything else to avoid or closely monitor. I would also request periodic calls with the owners to give each other feedback such as customer satisfaction, dog behavior, and identify any requested changes,See more

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.
