Danielle dog sat my two dogs for week while I was on vacation. She had to administer medication twice for a aging pup with Cushings. Her First Aid and CPR training and just overall confidence with dogs, made my out of town plans just that much easier. She gave me feedback concerning some behavioral traits that may need some attention, so we will begin this training very soon. Schedule your time with Danielle with full confidence!-Chris

Mark took great care of our collie, Austen, and kept in constant contact with me during the entire time. Austen was a very happy pup when we returned from our trip thanks to Mark spending quality time with him. I have complete confidence and trust in Rochester Dog Walkers. Highly recommended and the only dog sitting company I will work with from now on.

Wonderful experience. Would recommend him to anyone wanting a pet sitter. His detail in providing feedback on the care of your pet leaves you with a feeling of "ease" in that you know your pet is being well cared for.

We hired Anne take care of our dog Spuds while we were out of town for 10 days. She stopped by our house 3 times a day to let him out to go to the bathroom and to feed him. She sent us daily text messages to let us know how it was going, she did a great job, I plan on hiring Anne again when we need a dog sitter.

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.
