Michael has been fantastic. I've now used him to pet sit for my cat on 2 week-long occasions. He never forgets, is flexible about finding a time to pick up keys, and is very careful about instructions (how much to feed, of what, when, taking the dirty litter out to the trash, etc.) Of particular note was how he went above, beyond, and to the moon for me on the first occasion. I was taking a cruise from Puerto Rico (which doesn't require a US passport but the other countries I was visiting did). I left my passport at home and was stuck in San Juan not able to board the cruise. I called Michael since he has access to my apt & passport, he dropped everything, went to my apartment, found my passport, and shopped around at a number of Fed Ex locations to try to overnight my passport to me. This was a Friday and it turns out that San Juan doesn't deliver packages on Sundays OR Saturdays so it was going to be faster to fly home and get the passport myself. After shopping around the city to try to get my passport to me and being available for my frantic calls, Michael went BACK to my apt to drop off my passport for when I came to pick it up. Though the FedEx-ing didn't work out, the lengths that Michael went to help me out were extraordinary and I would whole-heartedly recommend him to anyone who needs pet-sitting (or who MIGHT have a travel fiasco like I did). Thank you Michael!

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.

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!

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.

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.

I had never used any type of service to look after my dog. When I contacted Northeast Philadelphia Pet Sitting & Pet Care & met Mark Taplar I knew right away my Black Labrador would be in great hands. Over the two week period we saw nothing less than outstanding service, coupled with the superb love & caring for my dog. The highest rating we can give is 5 stars, but I rate them a 10!!

Today was the first time I met Steve in my home. I feel very confident that he has the ability to help teach me to be the best dog owner I can be! I demonstrated my dog running off the porch and down the walkway with me while he was on a leash. I also shared a video of my dog biting at me while trying to get him inside. I'm looking forward to our training classes and am anxious to get started.

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.

When our regular neighborhood petsitter was no longer available, I wasn't sure what we would do. Our cats get fed wet food, and our oldest cat has some medical issues, so we wanted someone who wouldn't just "pet and run." Kate stayed over and cared for them as we would. Our cats were calm and content when we came home. They want her back!

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!

Ed has been invaluable to us and our new puppies. We work in Manhattan during the week, and simply can't make it back to NJ during the day, but Ed has been there every day we've needed him, making sure our puppies get the attention, water, exercise, etc. that they need, and he obviously cares about the puppies. He's also given us links to articles, advice, etc. on raising new puppies. I fully recommend Edz Pet Walking!

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.

We hired Amber for cat sitting services over Thanksgiving break. Amber was very professional and caring and we particularly loved that she sent many photos and updates throughout her visits for our two cats. She even took care of our neighbor’s cat as well! They were really well taken care of and I would definitely recommend her to anyone!

Tammy is unquestioningly a wonderful pet sitter. We have left our two elderly Nichols in her care for two weeks on occasion, and we returned to happy and healthy dogs. Tammy , in addition is a delightful person who is absolutely lovely to deal with. We sing the highest praises on her behalf.

Don't look any further! Peggy is just brilliant! Not only a great pet sitter but a lovely person. I have had many pet sitters in the past and I didn't know this kind of service was possible, she provides daily updates and cute pictures while we are away, she buys Rosita (a tiny chichi) yummy treats and gives her tons of love. She is so responsible, sweet, experienced (she has a big bunch of rescue pets herself) and caring that my dog misses her and of course she stops by once in a while to pet her and let her know she is still around. We feel very lucky to have her in our lives! :-)

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!

      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.
