Jerrie was a pet sitter for my chihuahua Milo for years. She also would even house sit for me, and take care of him and my home when I was out of town. She was so patient with him despite him taking a long time to warm up to new people, he bonded with her right away. Jerrie is so natural with animals and such a kind and caring person. She goes above and beyond to send you updates, pictures, and even keeps a detailed notebook about how your dog does each time she dog sits and what activities they do (walking, playing, feeding). I trusted her completely to care for my dog and would recommend her to anyone looking for a caring, reliable and responsive pet sitter.

I would recommend Christine to anyone needing a responsible, caring pet sitter. She took the time to send daily photos of my cat to me, a wonderful way to give me peace of mind while I was traveling.

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.

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!

Dedicated, loving, knowledgeable, caring, and maybe part K-9. I couldn't recommend a better trainer for your dog not matter if the task is big or small. I have worked with her for over 4 years with many dogs and situations. She has personally trainer 2 of my dogs. One from a puppy and another we had behavioral issues with who is stubborn. She took on both tasks with full dedication and heart. Can not recommend enough!

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!

Melissa was excellent. We were in quite a pinch - leaving for an international trip in just 24 hours from when I posted. She was able to swing by for a tour of the house and visit each day. Melissa/Let's Go is now our go-to pet sitter. So glad to have found her!

I have been thoroughly impressed by Paw Print Pet Sitting. Both the office staff Laura and my Pet Sitter, Shelly, have been nothing but courteous and friendly in every interaction I’ve had with them. I feel confident when I leave my furry babies in Shelly care that they will get not just essentials like water and food, but also genuine affection and play time. The fact that Paw Print Pet Sitting is insured gave me peace of mind to start working with them, but Shelly has been incredibly professional and I felt right away that she’d make a good fit. We live in Minneapolis, I really like that my Petsitter lives nearby, another neat aspect that Paw Print Pet Sitting does. The prices are very fair for the time and tasks involved, and every time I have a sit done, I get video updates along with texts as to how everything went. I know it’s a bit scary choosing someone to care for your four-footed children, but I can say I’d confidently recommend these folks to anyone in the Twin Cities area. Laura clearly puts her heart into her business, and I couldn’t be happier that I gave Paw Print Pet Sitting a chance. Looking forward to many more sits in the future!

My previous cat sitter was great with the pets but did not professionally manage her business. Also, each time she sat for my cats, she failed to do an easy task she promised to perform--check the side door for packages, use my security system code, wanted cash payment. These caused a lot of trouble for me. Michelle gets the job done right and is not just good with pets but cares about being a professional.

Jenny is a professional pet care provider. She does an excellent job taking care of our two dogs and two cats. When we interviewed her she had a lot of questions for us about our pets, she really wanted to get to know them. We have a new puppy and Jenny wanted to know the all the verbal and non-verbal commands to help him pass level 1ASPCA training.

Cameron watched my two puppies for a few days in a row and did an outstanding job! He is very friendly and connected with Paxson and Miles instantly! My two puppies usually have separation anxiety from being away from me, but they love staying at Cameron's because he makes it feel like home. He plays with them and let's them run around the yard, and gives them all the love and attention that I would. I had an excellent experience having Cameron as a dog sitter and I really felt like my puppies were in good hands! I will definitely bring my puppies back to Cameron when I need another sitter!

I am over the moon with the quality of care I have received from Alex and Marea. They are professional, dependable, reliable and take great care with my three dogs. They feed and walk my dogs Mon-Fri.. transport them to daycare when requested and contact me with concerns or suggestions, which I greatly appreciate.. I could not ask for more. They are very kind, friendly and loving people.

    Christina has cared for our dogs for over two months and is wonderful with them. She is punctual and dependable and gives our dogs tons of attention, including walks, belly rubs, and fetch. She cares deeply about their well-being and we know they are in good hands with her. We whole-heartedly recommend her as a pet sitter/walker.

    About

    I am an elementary teacher with summers off. I enjoy animals but am so busy during the school year that I don't feel it would be right for me to have my own animal. I especially enjoy dogs and cats but could help out with other pet varieties.

    About

    Hello there, my name is Allan Martin. I am a fully insured and bonded Professional Pet SItter and Dog Walker. I represent Gram's Angels Pet Sitters, LLC. I have over 30 years of animal rescue, care and fostering experience. I just love all animals and do what i can for them to make them happy as well as their owners. I have a website Gramsangelspetsitters.com There are rates on the website, and they can always be negotiated. I am more concerned the pets get the care and attention that they deserve and that you as the owner, know they are well taken care of.

    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.
