Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts 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.

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.

Debbie pet sits for my cat and 3 dogs when I have long work days. Everyone loves her and she is always trustworthy and reliable. This gives me great peace of mind. I would highly recommend her for any of your pet sitting needs.

We have never used a pet sitting service before. We had relied on friends and family. The vetting process that WS&S uses for their pet sitters is exceptional. Our cat sitter, Jenn, doesn’t just feed and change litter... she plays games, cuddles, and ensures their happiness. Highly recommend.

Christine was amazing! She took great care of our two cats when we went on vacation. She even put a blanket in the laundry for us. She was very professional and I would highly recommend her for pet sitting.

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!

We hired Jerrie to care for our 2 cats while we were away for Christmas. She came to meet us and our pets prior to us hiring her and our cats were drawn to her immediately. She also came just prior to our trip to finalize details. She provided a file folder of information for us and got more from us. She also worked with my sister-in-law who was at our home some of the nights we were away. Our cats were relaxed and happy when we got home, with new toys from Jerrie all about. They’re still playing with them. This was our first sitting job from Jerrie and we are very happy with how it went. We will definitely hire her when we need a sitter again. Thanks, Jerrie!!
