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.

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.
Reviews for Milwaukie pet sitters
Erin S.
We had Allyson house/pet sit for us while we went out of town for a couple of days. We have a LOT of pets. She handled them all and was able to navigate their specific feeding requirements, some cats who can go outside and others that can’t and even the antics of our destructive kittens! We wouldn’t hesitate to have her pet and house sit again.

Could not be more pleased with Deanna's pet sitting. She took care of our dog and cat for 3 weeks and did an outstanding job. Now we can go out of town stress free knowing our animals are in great hands.

Michael was very easy to talk to during the f consult visit. He wanted to know a little about us and what our story was without making it feel intrusive. He was very open and honest when we asked the questions about his professional life. He let us know some about his personal life which is the best way to start a relationship. Micheal did pet sitting help for us so that first consult visit was key for us to get a feeling about letting him into our house when we were away. There were absolutely no red flags, unlike our past experiences trying to find pet help. While we were gone, he provided updates About our pets which was reassuring. When we got back, our house and pets were in the condition we left them. We will be calling upon Michael for help once again next time we go out of town.
