I love the personal attention and detail provided by sitters. We often get notes and pictures from the visits, which always put our minds at ease. And we loves the daily email reports that show the time they arrive and when they leave. All around a great service!! Highly recommend.

Safe Home & Pet Sitters is doing an excellent job with my Aussie. Michelle has become a very important part of our routine. My dog is stress-free when I get home, and Michelle's great care and attention helps with my dog's training and behavior. She's fun, dependable and a stronger pack leader.

I cannot say enough good things about Cindy’s Pet Sitting! Cindy and her team have been wonderful to me and my two dogs and I have used them over the past few years and have really enjoyed getting to know her and her team. I have worked with Cindy, as well as three of her dog sitters – all have been outstanding! I was very impressed with the level of professionalism I received by both Cindy and my current dog sitter, Colleen. We had our initial visit in which Cindy accompanied Colleen to meet me, learn about the dogs and get to know our routine. I was provided documentation, contact information, copies of insurance, etc – more than I really even knew to ask for!! – and was also made to feel like a friend. Which is very reassuring….leaving not only your pet children in someone else’s care – but your home as well – it helps to know that it is with someone that you can trust! Colleen is just fantastic! You can tell that she a real animal lover and she is so thoughtful with my dogs. I have an older dog that is allergic to corn – while during the discovery and rehab of this condition, Colleen was so concerned, offered to help and asked about Banx --- even when she wasn’t sitting for him. My younger dog keeps her busy with fetch and the overwhelming need for attention --- she takes it all in stride. She is just wonderful and I am so lucky to have her to call on to take care of my boys! I highly recommend Cindy’s Pet Sitting services – Cindy and her team are professional, thoughtful and they get it! You have to care about not only the pets – but the people – to be successful and they do! I have had the same dog sitter for over a year now; however, if there is ever a need for a substitute, Cindy makes the effort to bring the sub for me to meet ahead of time – sometimes just in case one is needed! – so that I feel at ease with all members of her team. Cindy’s is the best ~ hands down!

Absolutely hands down the best pet care takers I have Ever had. I have Two puppies , a golden doodle (large) and a havanese (ex small) and a really busy work life. I needed A pet sitter for over night stay last minute. Within an hour last minute and Jen the owner texted me back within minutes and worked me Into her busy schedule, her daughter Amiya had watched my dogs and stayed over with them, they are the loveliest people I have Ever met. It’s scary leaving your dogs and house with someone you have never met but these ladies are the most trusting animal loving good souls I could Have ever hoped for. Not only that but they are super affordable and keep you updated through out the day and night she even sent me pictures of my pups. I will ONLY use them for future sitting needs for my dogs. I highly Highly recommend and wish I could Leave a higher star rating than 5!

Sherrill has been fantastic. My pups are not the easiest to work with - one has some fear issues. But Sherrill takes the time to make my pups comfortable. She is dependable, competent, and so easy to work with. If you need for a pet sitter, give her a call, let her meet your pets and see if you disagree - I don't think you will!

Teachers Pets was very quick to respond to our request for services. They talked with us about our animals and helped us chose the perfect sitter based on our animals’ personalities. Our sitter sent us great updates assuring us all was well with our home and fur babies. Our house was left in perfect condition, just how we left it. All services were provided punctually assuring our pets were not having to hold it or be by themselves for too long. Paying was also easy! The entire process was positive and easy going. We definitely would recommend Teachers Pets!

Emilio is a gem - he is extremely responsive and reliable. I have two cats and I have left them with other cat-sitters before, or in the care of friends when I was on vacation, but I always worried about them. Not so with Emilio - I know they are in great hands. I would highly recommend Awesome Pets Care for long-term or short-term pet-sitting.

Shelayne is a wonderful pet sitter. We were gone from home during Hurricane Matthew in 2016 and she drove through torrential rain and flooding to get to our pets. She is thorough and carefully documents your pets needs and any concerns you have about being away from critters. We have dogs, a cat, and two parrots and she cares for all of them well. Our parrots, especially, can be finicky and Shelayne took the time to get to know them so they wouldn't be naughty and not let her change their food and water! We also appreciate the clear communication and text messages we receive when we're gone and she sends us updates.

    My pets love their Pawtastic Petsitter! They really kept me out of a bind when my roommate and I were both going out of town- now, I don't even bother my roommate with it anymore! My sitter came over several times a day and sent updates while I was away. Really gave me peace-of-mind to know they were well taken care off, and that allowed me to enjoy my trip. I highly recommend Pawtastic Petsitters!

    My dog is my baby. Crystal and the folks at Wag the Dog have cared for him since I brought him home four years ago, and I wouldnt trust anyone else with my home or my pet. Their care, compassion and attention to detail is beyond compare. Crystal is always professional, and the sitters are AMAZING!! The scheduling system is easy to use and most importantly I can rest easy when I travel knowing that my dog and my home are in great hands. There simply is no better pet sitter.

    Having had issues with both, pet sitters and boarding in the past we were somewhat skeptical of the Thumbtack concept and process; however, Joan's background, experience and demeanor made us much more confident and willing to give it a try for our two most picky kittens during our week long vacation. She was easy to work with from initial contact and throughout. At the introductory visit she took detailed notes and asked all relevant questions as well as being very open with answers to our own. She exudes a caring attitude along with a genuine caring for both, animals and all aspects of her work with them. She was also quick, with a willingness to offer and include extra little touches of service, beyond the basics in order to make sure the home as well as our pets were taken care of. Flexible in accommodating the schedule and routine we needed her to follow, she visited on time, as promised and completed all duties exactly as arranged. After each visit Joan took the time to email a reassuring update. Through her thoughtful communication it was comforting to know things were in the capable hands of a true professional and caring individual. We are very pleased with our decision to hire Joan who will certainly be top of our list when next we travel. We are happy to recommend her services to others whatever your pet sitting needs... Joan is a treasure and great value for money with level of customer service so sadly lacking in this day and age... We feel confident you will not be disappointed.

    Safety for horse and rider are a priority. I try to provide as much time and explanation as I can to help get horse & rider on there way to success. I don't believe in force, but more in patience and understanding.

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
