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!!!!!

Jesse was great. I was more jumpy than the poor cat. 18 year old rescue with mats everywhere. She helped make the experience as trauma free as possible!

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.

Deb Nitz is EXCELLENT!!! She has walked our dog(who adores her). Deb, also, stayed w/ the dog, kitty, plants and house while my husband and I were away for almost 2 weeks. Whatever the animal's needs are , Deb went above and beyond to take care of our sweet babies. Our kitty has need of a "pumpkin concoction" for about 7pm @ night...no problem! Kitty came up and let Deb hold her...very unusual for our kitty. Deb walked and took the dog to the park, to play, run and socialize w/ some of the other park visitors!! (Always on a leash!) HAPPY, HAPPY PUPPY!!!! Lots of play time ! "Oh, by the way I did a little cleaning and laundry before you came home", she told us!!! Really, WHO does that?!? DEB NITZ...that's who! Lucy Burby, her reference to us, told me, "She sure does love her dogs!!" My 89 year-old Mom told me she was , "One of the nicest people she ever met!" My husband and I are very happy to recommend Deb Nitz and her pet skills (walking, pet sitting, socialized play, etc.) to any lucky pet. Trust that she will treat them w/ talent, care and love.

We are extremely happy that we found Paula to take care of our babies! We have a chihuahua who is the "muscle" in the house. Paula won her over in 1 or 2 visits! That alone is HUGE for us! When we met Paula it was clear that we liked her warm personality right away. I highly recommend Hapi Pawz for your dog sitting needs!

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!

Frances is an awesome pet sitter, always exceeding your expectations. She genuinely cares about your pet as if it was her own. We highly recommend hiring Frances to care for your family dog or cat. It will be one of the best decisions you can make for the benefit of your beloved pet. We lost our dog, Bobby, last year. It was a heart wrenching experience for both of us, and we still miss him every day. During his final illness Frances checked with us regularly, and in the end we knew just how special Bobby was to Frances. Frances becomes more than a caregiver. From your pet's point of view Frances becomes as an extended member of your family.

She has comes off as a person with great integrity in character, which made it easier for me to trust my cat to be in her hands while I was away on a job training. I would say putting the care of your pet is her hands is not a great idea but also a smart choice!

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!

Katherine was kind and attentive to me and my two cats. She provided excellent services that we had agreed to: watering my plant, cuddling my needy cats, feeding them, cleaned the litter box, etc. On top of the agreed upon services she also was intuitive and made sure my blue apron package that was delivered (surprisingly to me as I had forgot to cancel that weeks delivery) was unpacked and neatly stored in my fridge. She sent really cute photos of my cats to me each visit to reassure me they were doing well. Key pick up and drop off was extremely easy as she is willing to accommodate you. Upon return to my home I found a nice hand written letter telling me of the cats behavior while I was away. I appreciated that the most because you don't know how your pets react when you leave. She also cleaned up the bugs that my cats caught before they could eat them and made sure to tell me in the letter which I found quite funny. Being the first or one of the first people to hire Katherine had me weary but I am glad I took the leap of faith. You can trust that Katherine will spoil your pets with love and be a responsible home sitter.

Gloria was amazing with our two cats!! She provided daily updates, went above and beyond when one of our cats was suffering from some separation anxiety, and was incredibly attentive. Gloria is a wonderful petsitter, who exhibited great professionalism while working with us to find what worked best for our cats while we were out of town. Highly recommend! Gloria is the best!

Erin did an amazing job taking care of our little Gizmo. She went above and beyond our expectations as far as the extra time she spent with him and the constant contact she had with us as to how our dog was doing. This was the first time we had used a pet sitter and we could not have been more pleased. We plan to use her every time we go away and will recommend her to anyone needing a pet sitter.

I wish I could do 4.5 stars. I chose 4 because communication leading up to the sit was a little mixed-up, there were last minute changes to the sitters being used, and they don't do late night potty visits, so I had to enlist a neighbor to run over and do that. However, they took wonderful care of my very elderly dog and cat. We were gone for 3 days/2 nights and with the text/photo updates I felt very reassured that they were fine. I would not hesitate to recommend them and will definitely use this service again.

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.
