I decided to use a pet sitter for the first time on my recent business trip. Previously using various kennels and finding friends to take care of my dogs. I am very happy with Furball Fitness! I got updates on every visit and a picture of them. The dogs were happy when we returned and not stressed like in previous situations. I will definitely use them again and I highly recommend it.

Review: Tim Bruno, Pack Boss LLC Tim was my dog sitter and trainer for several years. If I could have brought him to Colorado with me, I would have! The dogs enjoyed him – good runs/walks, other dogs and people to play with (and Tim made them all mind their manners). He’s reliable and sends quick updates while one is gone. Tim helped me work through some behavioral issues with one of my dogs who started biting people, and even wrote an affidavit for the court appearance. Tim is also a veteran – you’ve trusted him with your life and freedom, now trust him with your pets.

Denise was amazing! She stayed in our home caring for our 2 dogs and 1 cat for 4 days. The animals absolutely love her! She has a kind gentle spirit which really calmed our normally hyper pups. We came home to well cared for pets & an immaculate home. We have already asked her to sit for us next month. Denise is the best!!

Brenda is great! She has watched my 3 pets multiple times now, even doing overnight stays to care for my puppy (who likes to bark). She actually spends quality time with your pets unlike other sitters I've tried in the past. Thank you Brenda for your help, the pups and Emma will miss you when we move!

Kimberly is amazing. She went above and beyond to take care of my two cats and my fish--I came home to a clean house with fresh kitty litter and new cat food for the cats. Highly recommended!

Benny is a great guy and a great puppy sitter! I have an 8yr old Shih-Tzu that has never been away from us but a last minute trip forced us to find her a sitter. Benny was super attentive, loving and patient with Miah. He Facetime us every night! We would recommend Benny to anyone! Thank you Benny! <3

Ashley is very dedicated to her job. She took care of my cat for a month in an excellent way. We were constantly in contact, and she sent me pictures and videos of my cat to show me how she was doing. My cat loves her now. She was also so very nice to water my plants. I highly recommend her as a cat sitter.

    Anna takes excellent care of Pippa, my 1 year old golden retriever, and I don't have to worry about her at all while we're gone. She's one of the VERY few people I trust to care for my fur-baby! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a caring, responsible pet sitter in the area.

    We are currently using Pawsitively Pampered Pets for daycare for our 8 month old pitbull, Atlas. Since Atlas is still a puppy, he needs to be entertained during the day so he will actually sleep at night. We were also looking to have him interact with other dogs during the day. Pawsitively Pampered Pets is just perfect for what he need. Initially, Amber invited us over to meet her, her husband, and her son prior to signing up for daycare. We also met the 3 resident dogs of the household and Atlas got to sniff around the house. When we dropped Atlas off the first time, he whined at the door and was so excited to go in. When we picked him up his tail was wagging and he seemed as happy as could be. Thanks Pawsitively Pampered Pets!

    About

    I've been volunteering doing housecleaning and pet care for 4 years now, and I want to make it into a business. I've been working odd jobs along with my volunteer work. I never sit pets at my home because I cannot, but I can do many things. I prefer to meet some time before the job, so you can get to know me, and if I'm doing pet care, I would like to meet the pet(s) first. What I can do are as follows: - overnight care in the home - pet cleanup - cage cleanup - dog walking - pet bathing - sweeping, dusting, etc. I also do many more within reason. I like to have all information upfront. I let my customers pick the pay.

    About

    I visit a clients home free of charge to meet the pets I will be taking care of and tour the property. I take down instructions such as any special meds pets need, special diets, and emergency numbers to contact. I then visit the pets as many times a day as requested or even stay overnight in some cases. I keep a clients home with a "lived in" look while they're away and comfort their pets with play time and feedings. I sometimes run errands for clients such as grocery store trips and medication pick ups.

    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.

      I own 8 very friendly, easygoing, housebroken dogs (7 of which are under 15 lbs). I am looking for someone to stay with them overnight and drop in for a short visit or two during the day. They don't need walks (I have a fenced back yard) and they're not high energy. They just need to be fed and get some cuddle time while I'm away.
