I am a strong, healthy, mature woman who doesn't party or bring strangers to my client's homes. I write books about caregiving and have cared for my parents since 2016. I shut down my pet website then. My father passed away in 2021 and my mother is now in assisted living, so I am returning to pet sitting in a new city and state. I miss my animal friends! I spend most of my day with the pets, in the home. I leave people's homes as I found them, or better. I have experience with dogs of all sizes (from Yorkie to Leonberger/Great Danes), cats, birds, fish, guinea pigs, horses, chickens. I've watched over homes from mobile homes to 10,000 square foot homes, and some properties with a barn or pool house in the back. I've supervised construction, housekeeping, farm hands and landscapers while sitting. Unconditional love is a wonderful thing. When pets enjoy their time with me, following their own routine, and eating their own food, they don't feel anxious about being separated from their humans. :-) Clients say things like their animals didn't even miss them; the house was better than when they left it; how can my cat/dog be in your lap in one hour when it takes days and multiple visits with other sitters? I am happy to provide references and/or photos of me with my pet clients. I am fully insured for pet and house sitting. Copies of insurance and references available upon request. Looking forward to talking with you!See more

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.

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.
