We needed obedience training for our 1 and 1/2 year old lab. She is very energetic and we had little to no control over her before Kristin started working with her. Kristin's love for animals was obvious from the start. She works not only with the animals, but with the owners as well. It can be very frustrating when you love your pet, but don't know how to communicate with them. Kristin changed all that, everything from walking her without her trying to rip my arm off, to keeping her off the counters, to unnecessary barking. Roxy's (our lab ) behavior has gotten so much better thanks to Kristin. I learned way more about dogs than I thought I would. It was so amazing to see the progress Roxy made each week.Kristin is very passionate about animals and is a pleasure to work with.

MacKenzie did a wonderful job. Not only did she care for our cats, but she left everything neat and clean and brought in our mail and packages. She also gave me text updates on how the cats were doing. I’ll definitely be using MacKenzie for all our pet sitting needs.

Ali can best be described as the "gold standard" for dog walking and care! You won't find anyone more caring, through or reliable! My pups just love her!

Yvonne has been a godsend! My husband was on his last nerve with out recently adopted schnoodle. He wouldn't come, stay or listen to almost anything we wanted and to top things off he was a nuisance barker. After our initial evaluation Yvonnne gave us some homework and within a week we saw a huge change with not much effort on our part!! We hired Yvonne for a six week package for a very reasonable price and have had two of our six lessons and I can say that Max is no longer in danger of going back to the rescue group : ) Her methods are very effective and have made a huge change in our lives with our new family member. Anyone having difficulties with their pet should absolutely have Yvonne work with them.

I would highly recommend Deborah for pet sitting services. You can tell she loves her job and her furry clients. Deborah took such great care of my dog Dixie and my friends dog Murphy while we vacationed for a week. I don't think they wanted to come home. They were quite tuckered out upon their return. Thanks Deborah for treating our dogs like they were your own!

I met Diana and Louie back in October 2016 and then very quickly hired them to walk my dog, Chance. So far, they have been absolutely wonderful! Diana is very reliable and I know my dog is in good hands every time she comes to walk him! I also appreciate the daily notes she leaves for me, letting me know how my pet is doing! I am so thankful I found her and Louie! Thank you so much!

Kendra has been watching my dog Cooper for 5 years now. I can't think of enough good things to say about her!! It is such a relief to go on vacation and have her stay at our house. Not only does she give my dog excellent care, somehow my house is cleaner then when I left! On one particular trip as we were leaving my dog had a little cough, a couple of days later it got worse and Kendra took him to the vet, picked up medicine and made sure he was well. When we came home he was back to normal. Kendra is always reliable she has never once cancelled and has actually gone out of her way to help us out on last minute trips or emergencies. Most importantly is how much my dog loves her! I have recommended Kendra to many friends and all have been thrilled with her services.

Patti has been a joy to work with. She has walked our dog daily for over a year, and watched her for the occasional weekend when we travel. I know our dog enjoys their time together and knowing she is being looked after puts our minds at ease.

Ruth has cared for our pet birds many times. She is wonderful. Reliable, compassionate, and very conscientious. She went above and beyond what we even asked her to do. We felt very confident that our birds were receiving excellent care while we were away. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ruth to anyone looking for pet care.

Being new cat owners, my girlfriend and I were worried about having to find someone to sit our kitty while we were on vacation. All anxiety went away after our first meeting with Gail from Happy Whiskers Pet Sitting service. Gail assured us that she could provide quality care for our cat in the comfort of our home. She certainly delivered on this promise! In addition to the usual cat-sitting tasks performed each visit, she sent us daily messages on how our cat was doing along with pictures. Our cat is quite picky and usually hesitant to interact with strangers, but she warmed up instantly to Gail. My girlfriend and I were able to have a relaxing vacation away from home and came back to a very happy kitty. I'd strongly recommend her to any pet owners!

Angela was so good with all my animals. She even had to deal with getting sprayed by a skunk with the dogs! She did a great job of cleaning up! I felt comfortable while I was gone, knowing my animal family had excellent care.

      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.
