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.

Sarah from Pet First Pet Care Dog Walking & Pet Sitting offers a phenomenal service!! She is quick to respond and very accommodating. She quickly connected me with Amanda her assistant who offered an equally phenomenal customer service. When your pets are truly your family, its tough to trust them to others, but this duo left me at ease & I was able to enjoy my trip out of town. I plan to begin using them regularly! I highly recommend them, and something tells me my two dogs do too.

I was extremely pleased with Pet First Pet Care and so happy I found them when needing a sitter for my two cats while away on vacation. Sarah was quick to respond to my request for services and we quickly set up a time for us to meet and go over details. I also met with my actual sitter, Suzi, a week before my trip and was immediately put at ease by her vibrant and pleasant personality. I knew my cats were going to be in good hands. I love Pet First's attention to detail, requesting all of the necessary information to take care of my cats as well as prompting me for things I may not have thought of - especially "in case of emergency" information. Suzi did an awesome job!! She came in every other day and took care of refreshing food and water as well as some "social time" with my kitties - as much as they would allow. I looked forward to the photos sent after each visit and enjoyed the short summary of each of her visits. A great, great service!! I highly recommend Pet First Pet Care and I will definitely use them for my future pet sitting needs.

Sherry did an amazing job pet sitting my cats, Rosie and Joey. I had not left St. Louis in 14 years and was beyond anxious about my trip to Albuquerque. She texted me pictures and supportive words twice a day; I saw my cats and knew they were safe and well cared for, even during our recent "tornado". Thank you Sherry!!! You have my highest praise and I know you will be taking care of my cats in the future! Carol

Keri is wonderful. We have many special needs cats we permanently foster, which makes finding a cat sitter very difficult. Keri handled all of the special needs kitties without batting an eye. Keri kept our cats happy while we were away, and she regularly communicated with us. She even left toys for the kitties and a wonderful note for us upon our return. We are so thrilled to have found Keri Cares Pet Sitting.

I have never used a pet sitting service for our two pups before and was super nervous. STLCCC definitely eased my nerves! They ask all the right questions and then some I wouldn’t have even thought about in preparation to care for your animals. I love that they take pictures and write up a short memo for each visit so that I could check in on them. It looked like our pups really enjoyed their time with them and we will definitely use them again in the future as well as recommend them to others! Thank you STLCCC!!!!
