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.

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.

Out of all the pet sitters I've hired over the past 14 years, Susan stands out as one of the best. She truly has a love for animals and obviously not in this business just for the money. I have a cat who requires insulin shots 2x a day and very scared around new people. She was a pro and on her own time, did some research about feline diabetes. Susan made me feel that my kitty was in good hands when I was away for 8 days. I want to keep her a secret because she's that good, but want someone who has a passion for animals and great business ethics to do very well. I'd recommend her for any of my friends who have cats or dogs.

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.

An excellent way to find great pet care in your neighborhood or nearby. The Rover website and app let you easily choose, schedule, and communicate with pet sitters and walkers. Sitters and walkers are vetted and background-checked before they can be listed on Rover. Other pluses: 24-7 customer service staff support, the ability to get updates and photos from a sitter or walker during a service, and protections offered through the Rover Guarantee.

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.

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.

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.
