Sing was very nice & gentle with my dogs. I would recommend her. She did both of my dogs. For the convenience and the fact that my dogs don't have to sit in a cage for many hours. I will happily have her come again.

I was dog-sitting for a friend for 11 days and Krystie was a life-saver. She came promptly every night for the "last" walk - was sweet and kind. The best was that she was extremely reliable. A great find! Highly recommend using her services.

We found Michael about two days prior to leaving out trip. He was so responsive, kind, and ensured things worked for us given the right turn around. In addition, while we were out, he kept in touch and sent photos :) I recommend him for any pet sitting. Of, he watched our two cats but confident that he'd be wonderful with any furry family friend!

Suki watched my two cats for about a week. She was great at communicating and letting me know that the cats were okay every day I was away. It was such a relief to not have to worry about my pets while on vacation. I'd highly recommend Suki for any pet-sitting needs. Thanks Suki!

Jenn was walking our dogs for a few years. Unfortunately, we had to move out of Manhattan just a few weeks ago. The dogs really loved her!!! Jenn's ability to communicate and control our dogs was amazing!!! No one else could have done it like Jenn. She was caring, trustworthy and made any efforts to meet our changed needs. We highly recommend Jenn/Flipz Pet Care to everyone.

Kyle and Victoria are very professional, they did a great job to take care of my Dog Kayden during my vacation. They treat my dog like their own. I highly recommend selecting this company as your dog sitting.

My experience with Bruce could be described as nothing less than a blessing. He is extremely easy to talk to, answers any question, and truly cares about you, your pet and your experience. He is very informative and is willing to work with your needs. AND it’s a plus he comes straight to you! I cannot wait to continue to work with Bruce and believe he will do great things for me and my pup.

Because my dog is old and gets sick with the kennel cough shot, I had not been able to get her groomed. When I found Ray & Fay who will come to your house. My dog was so matted and overgrown hair. They did a wonderful job. Fay was so good with my dog, who hates grooming. She did as good a job as any groomer to whom I've taken my dog. It was an excellent experience

Karen is amazing! I never ever worry about my dogs when she is here. (And i have rescue dogs one of which has issues.) I can travel and work with peace of mind. She is gentle; Dependable; Trustworthy. My dogs love her. She goes above and beyond all the time. I have had numerous dog sitters in the past. No more. This woman will always be the one i call for dog sitting. Do yourself a favor. Ditch the others and go with Karen. She’s fabulous!

I was lucky enough to hear about Katy through a friend and have her watch my cats for a long weekend last month. I'd never have anyone else cat sit for me now as long as Katy's available! She's kind and caring and her love for animals is apparent. I love how she'd send me photos of my cats while I was away too! My cats were so calm and happy upon my return, which made me feel less guilty about leaving them. I highly recommend Katy Cat Care! She also has great experience taking care of animals in need of daily medications. Luckily, I don't have this problem, but it's nice to know in case of future needs.

Elijah Reed is absolutely fantastic with my lil guy and I trust him 100%, which is hard for me. I'm the quintessential protective mom. He's prompt, friendly, professional and loves animals. He walks my lil dude twice a day five times a week and occasionally full day Pet sitting. Have I mentioned that my lil guy is obsessed with Elijah? Two thumbs up all the way.

K-9 Experts LLC is an amazing dog walking and training company. The firm is run by Jose Menedez out of Short Hills, NJ. He has a dedicated team of dog walkers who can handle all of your pet needs. They are always very punctual, professional and easy to work with. You can schedule you dog walking appointments on-line and you receive an email when the dog walker has entered your house and at the end of the walk telling you how the walk went. K-9 Experts LLC offers house services like taking in the mail, newspapers etc so you know your house and pet are safe. They also will feed you pet or take him to appointments as necessary. They are a one stop shop for all your pet walking, boarding and training needs. They have provided me with exceptional services and great dog care advice over the years. A year ago I had an emergency and wound up in the hospital for 4 days and they immediately went by my house and pickup up my dog and boarded him until I recovered. They truly care about your pets!

Brigitte provided such amazing care for my cat! My lily was so nervous while I was away, but Brigitte was the perfect person for the job - providing the highest level of care and companionship for my feline, and looking after my cats every need with the utmost skill. I cannot recommend her highly enough for all prospective clients - and I will be relying on her for my future cat sitting needs.

Mark, his son & daughter have taken good care of our cat, Carmen and our dog, Rebecca many times. They fed them according to their special diets, administered their medicine, and gave them both plenty loving attention and exercise. The Dawg Vacation House of NJ provides much better care than boarding at any Kennel and their rates are lower too. I would definitely recommend The Dawg Vacation House of NJ for all your pet care service needs.

I have two stories from double Kk. Karen has watched my 3 small children for me countless times and had them all asleep before I came home!! She treats my kids like they're her own. She a wonderful caring person. She has also watched my fur baby charlie when he was very sick and need alot of attention. She made sure he got all his medicine. And was given tons of love. Trust me once you let her watch your pets you will see why I'm raving about her!!!!!!

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.
