Jerrie is a great cat sitter. We highly recommend her to anyone. She looked after our two cats for over nine days during the holidays. We don't need a cat sitter on a regular basis. We live in a building with lots of cats and we tend to share cat sitting duties with our neighbors. However, this time around everyone was traveling over the holidays. We went to Thumbtack, a pet sitting app, to search for people who could look after our cats for nine days. We chose Jerrie based on her reviews and we are very glad we did so. She came to meet our cats beforehand. She brought with her a folder with our cats' names and a cover sheet explaining the types of services she offers. Our cats took immediately to her; something that does not usually happen on a first meeting. Jerrie not only looked after our cats, and the neighbors' cats, but she also replenished the window bird feeder, and fed a small outdoor feral cat that we feed on a regular basis. She is the best cat sitter and we'd really recommend her to anyone.

This was the first time we worked with Christine. She did an excellent job taking care of our cat George when we were out of town. He is an older cat that has to take medicine by mouth twice a day via syringe and Christine was able to easily handle that when she checked in on him when we were gone (amongst all the other caregivers duties), even though I don't believe she had given cats medicine like that before. When she stopped by a few days after we returned George instantly recognized her so you could tell he was well taken care of and gave her his 5 star review as well. I would recommend Christine for her pet sitting services.

Rita made a big difference to my family by helping our beloved pet heal from the trauma he experienced as a puppy mill dog prior to me adopting him. Rita massaged the anxiety out of my precious little cairn terrier - Little Doodles wagged and wagged as soon as he knew he was getting to see Rita.

We love having Wag Sniff and Stroll dog walking services for our 10 year old dog. Very reliable, responsible, nurturing and flexible. Makes the day fun and active for our dog, who would otherwise be very bored at home all day.

I recently moved to Maple Grove and needed to find a cat sitter that would be reliable and provide the kind of care I needed for my 3 cats. As someone who feels my kitties are my companions, this was a tall order. From the first meeting, I knew I had found the RIGHT cat sitter! While I'm out of town, I need frequent updates about my "kids" and Karen would send texts messages with pictures letting my know all was well. When I got home, I knew all 3 kitties were well taken care of. Karen takes the time to be with the cats and let them know everything is ok. When I got home, I could tell they were very well taken care of - they were all very content and I will definitely use Playful Paw again. Actually, to me, there is no other pet sitter that I will use - top quality, great communication, priced right and above all - HAPPY PETS!!!

Ali from At Home Pet Care came into our home twice a day to care for our dog and two cats. She had to give medicine to the dog, feed the animals, walk the dog and bring in the mail. She left notes every day, left the kitchen quite clean and our animals were in great shape when we returned. One of the cats is pretty skittish and previous times, we have heard that the pet sitter hasn't seen much of him. Ali was able to entice Bilbo out of hiding and even pet him - I was surprised and grateful that she took the time to work at that. We are thrilled with At Home Pet Care's service and recommend them highly!

Jessica has taken care of my two dogs (German Shorthair Pointer and Goldendoodle) for over five years. She has done everything for me: Dog walking, let outs, feeding, sitting, medication...you name it. The dogs adore her and go absolutely nuts every time she comes over! I trust her implicitly with both my dogs and my home. Her communication and availability has been excellent. If you are looking for a person who will love you pet as much (or more) than you do....she is the perfect person for the job!

I hired Heather to watch my cat for 2 weeks. She was very good with my baby! For much less than other pet sitting companies, I received a text every day when she started the visit, as well as a plethora of photos. She spoiled my little one with lots of love and attention, and I knew from the initial consult that my baby was in good hands. If I ever need a pet sitter again, I will definitely call Loli-Pup Pets!

Paw Print Pet Sitting Shelly checked in our cat while we were away for a week. Before our trip they did a consultation where they visited our home to meet our cat and tour our house and learn about how to take care of her. While we were away they checked in on her once a day - we did not specify a time so each day they came around a different time, but that was okay with us! You can tell them if you have a specific time you want them there every day. They would fill her water bowl and food and give her treats and play with her, if she wasn't too shy. They would also text several pictures every day so we could see her and know that they had been there. But I would definitely recommend Paw Prints!

Taara did an excellent job with my long-haired chihuahua, Jax. We never used a pet sitter with him before and were quite worried he would not be very easy to watch. When we went to meet her, she was outside with her dogs. My dog is very vocal when he is scared and he did just that, but Taara just reached out, and scooped him up. She held him close and comforted him. At that moment I knew he would do fine with her. After dropping him off, she kept us informed with texts and pics of him throughout his stay. He actually made friends with an Aussie she was watching. She also had a spa day with a doggy massage and nail trim ( she asked if it was okay first). When we picked him up, he actually kissed her goodbye, on the nose, while I was holding him (that has never happened, he is very protective of us) Taara is a very caring and loving towards animals. She is very knowledgeable and I highly recommend her as a pet sitter and I definitely will use her again! 👍👍👍

I can highly recommend Michelle! We have used her services for pet and house sitting for our 12 year old shepherd mix and 10 year old St. Bernard ... to which both were rescues. Michelle has stayed at our house for as short as one overnight and as long as one week. She has administered meds and has been compliant when separate feedings were needed. Typically, she sends a picture every couple of days and we return with notes from each day's activities. She has done a great job for us and I would highly recommend her services.

I had to find a sitter for my 2 dogs and my cat and had to find one in a short period of time. Cody responded within 24 hours and watched my animals from Friday-Monday. He responded very quickly especially when I needed one on such a short notice, and he was very polite and I could tell how much he loved animals. He did a wonderful job taking care of my babies, and I will be using him whenever I need a sitter for my animals from now on, and I will also be referring him to any of my friends that need a pet sitter. If you want a reliable person and a person who gives your animals lots of love and attention, he will not let you down!

Alex has taken care of my english mastiff mix many times. The dog adores him. ALex has experience with large breeds, so he is not intimidated by their rambunctiousness and has a gentle firmness that the dog responds to very well. Besides, Alex is great to work with on the people side as far as communication and professional attitude. i highly recommend Alex for dog walking and dog sitting jobs.

    About

    Hi, there! Animals are my passion and my career. I have my degree in animal science with specialization in nutrition, health, and animal behavior/training from the University of Minnesota. I have worked at a vet clinic for three years during college. I have experienced working at PetSmart for over a year as a groomer and in sales in guiding new pet parents along their exciting new journey. I also gained experience in caring for reptiles, avian animals, and small mammals for those clients looking for care for other pets at home. During my last two years in high school, I worked at a pet resort and excelled in daycare and boarding services. I just graduated from college and have a lot of energy and TLC to give to your pet, and I hope you consider me for your next pet sitter. Please feel free to text/call my cell, or contact me via my email as well; I will return your call/email very promptly. I am available overnights and have a very flexible schedule.

    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.
