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!

First off, I don't think there are enough words to describe just how wonderful Alex was during this experience. I was going out of town for the holiday weekend and needed a pet sitter for my 2 adult cats and 2 kittens (fostering from ICAC). Alex was very responsive to my Thumbtack request and immediately made himself available by phone! He was VERY accommodating. We treat our pets like family, so I knew that we were asking for him to do a lot (4 cats is kinda annoying) and he was always so kind, considerate, understanding, and willing to go the extra mile! He texted me after each visit to give a re-cap (he also offers to just leave a summary at the end of the gig, so if you're not wanting to receive messages every day, that's fine too). He is also very thorough about getting information about the pets and their different needs (he offers a complimentary visit to get to know the animals before you book). You can tell he really knows his stuff and cares about making sure your pets are comfortable and well taken care of. Just to give a little perspective, we were in a bit of a hurry to leave and I mentioned very briefly that I had no more paper towel and that I was sorry! I came home from my trip to a whole roll of paper towel in my kitchen. When I said he goes the extra mile, I really meant it. His generosity is immediately noticeable. If you're going out of town or just looking for someone who will take extraordinary care of your pets at an extremely reasonable price, look no further than Alex at BusyPaws!

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!

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.
