Ruth is a godsend with my dog! She knows just how to handle my shy, 75-pound rescue dog to put him at ease and give him the exercise and sniff-time he needs while I am recovering from minor surgery. He comes back exhilarated from his walks with her! Super friendly and conscientious, Ruth is someone I would trust to take care of all my pet's needs if I ever went out of town. She is THAT caring and attentive and understands the way dogs work -- even mine, who gets separation anxiety and alpha tendencies. I am so grateful to have found Ruth who clearly has a big heart for dogs and people and really wants to help where it is needed!!! Thank you SO MUCH Ruth!!!!!

I have never before in my 58 years on this planet, had I had any of my dogs groomed. Too much hassle, taking them and leaving them, vaccinations for kennel cough, dog flu etc... WoW!! How simple, convenient, and affordable. Sierra is still a farm dog, but she doesn't look like one now! Sierra is an Australian Shepard and very particular about the people that get close to her, she was very acceptable of Jesse at first, then she got to the point of standing proper and yawning! No doubt she totally accepts Jesse and loves the attention. Sierra looks Maaavelous!

Becky and her amazing team took care of our cat Mama while we were on vacation for two weeks. We absolutely loved the pet visit texts and photo's we received daily, and could tell Mama was being well taken care of. We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing she was in such good hands. I would highly recommend Paws Around Motown, and will continue to use their services in the future.

Lisa did an amazing job watching my dog for one week at my house while I was traveling. She took extra time walking and playing with her twice a day and sent me a couple updates on how everything was going. Lisa not only cares about doing a good job but has a special love for animals. I definitely recommend hiring Lisa for pet sitting!

I never thought to look online to choose a house/pet sitter but I am so glad I did. My experience was great and I HIGHLY recommend The Animal Train to watch your furry or feathered friends. Hannah was so responsible and I instantly trusted that she and her team would take excellent care of my cat and chickens.... and they did. I have no complaints about the care the animals received. Everything went as planned and it is so nice to leave for vacation knowing that the house and the pets are in good hands. Thank you so much!

Peggy was always on time taking care of our cat Riley. He took to her right away. She is very kind and I can see why animals like her. We were gone three weeks and not once did we worry about Riley. She sent us pictures and let us know that he was okay. We will be hiring her again for all of our pet sitting needs!

    Hallie, helping her young teen daughter Lyra, did a great job of keeping us informed on the status of our two dogs and one cat. She sent us pictures via phone, took the dogs for walks, fed and cleaned up the messes they made. She clearly loves animals, and they love her!

    Hannah is truly wonderful! She is a caring and knowledgeable professional who took great care of my cat while I was away. She offered advice to help ease my cat’s anxious biting tendencies, sent me regular updates with pictures, and even cleaned up after his messes. I would highly recommend her pet sitting or grooming services to anyone!

    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.
