Heather came to us highly recommended and so we believed she would do a good job. What we didn't know was that she would do a Phenomenal Job! She is highly trustworthy, does fantastic work and our pets love her. We now call Fridays "Happy Heather" days because we come home to a spotless house and enjoy it all weekend long. We're big fans of Heather. She is very sweet as well. Please do consider her for your house cleaning needs. Scot Wheeler Midland

    Zoie is one of my best friends and she is probably one of the most greatest pet sitter I've ever met. She takes such good care of her animals and anyone else's. I definitely recommend her to watch your pet.

    Ihave been taking care of dogs for over 6 years and have excellent references. I am also a member of my local Humane Society for over 10 years. And I volunteer and my local shelter when ever I can.


    All pets like me. They know who the Boss is and mind me. Yet, I have compassion for their loneliness when their people are away. I am a neat freak. My personality is one that desires to protect people and pets.


    I have worked at two kennel places. I have volunteered for the humane society. I have a veterinarian assistance certification.


    I work alone. I am a teen pet care provider. I can stay overnight on weekends. I can walk, and feed your animals. I do dogs, fish, exotic and farm animals and horses. I have three years of experience, and I hope you will choose me to pet-sit your animal.

    I am great with with pets. I am very reliable and determined to give you and your pet (s) my very best effort.


    I have been pet sitting for about 5 years now and enjoy being able to help people feel at ease that their animals are being cared for by someone who loves animals and is willing to go above and beyond for them and their owners.

    I love all types of animals! I offer pet sitting, dog walking, and poo cleanup and disposal. If you are a busy worker, I will even come play with your fur babies, so they are not alone all day. I also offer pest or animal removal.

    I enjoy walking dogs and caring for them when their owners aren't able to. I cannot have my own pet at the time, so it is a treat for me to be around other's.


    I want to have a career helping animals, so I thought pet sitting would be a great way to start for the future. I love animals very much. I give lots of care to animals and make them feel wanted and loved.

    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.
