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!

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!

True dog lovers. Your pets will be treated exactly how you would treat them because Jenn will make sure she and her walkers know everything that they need to know about you and your pet. It will be like you are walking your dogs yourself.

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!!

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!

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!

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.

Jorge did an amazing job house and cat sitting for us when we went away for 5 days last week. He is very professional and sweet and clearly loves animals. We have 3 cats all with different medications and he was very thorough asking about their different needs and personalities. He also took great care of our home. I would definitely recommend him and he really gave us peace of mind that our babies were being taken care of. Thank you Jorge!

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.

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! :-)

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.

Jonathan has been a great help to our family and our lovely Maltese, Fluffy. Before Jonathan became our dog walker, Fluffy was always hyperactive around the house. Now he enjoys his daily morning walks with Jonathan. Jonathan is trustworthy and reliable—I know that my Fluffy is safe while I’m working.

    Danielle has been looking after my two dogs for the past three years. She instantly bonded with them and I appreciate her strong communication (pictures and phone calls) while I am away. She is very professional and has a great natural rapport with dogs. My dogs have a strict diet and eating routine that she has been amazing about following. I highly recommend her!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts 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.

      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.
