Debbie was wonderful. She was very organized and thorough in taking notes and making sure she knew exactly what I needed her to do for each of my cats. One of my kitties has a lot of special needs including requiring to be given IV fluids every other day. Debbie was willing and able to take on the task of her care. She gave all my kitties excellent care and sent me pictures of them every day as well as updates on how they were doing. She clearly genuinely cared for their well being. My cats are skittish and they all came out of hiding for her which speaks volumes to how comfortable they felt around her. I highly recommend Debbie and will use her again for pet sitting needs.

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!!

Today was the first time I met Steve in my home. I feel very confident that he has the ability to help teach me to be the best dog owner I can be! I demonstrated my dog running off the porch and down the walkway with me while he was on a leash. I also shared a video of my dog biting at me while trying to get him inside. I'm looking forward to our training classes and am anxious to get started.

Liz was a great help when I needed to find a cat sitter on short notice during a holiday week. She has a lot of experience taking care of pets so she knows exactly what questions to ask. She even sent me pictures of my cat, Melanie, to put my mind at ease. I highly recommend Liz for any pet sitting needs.

Alyssa was very nice. She tried but our cat didn't do so well with a dog groomer. We need to have a cat specialist next time for our cat that got upset-even though Alyssa was very nice.

Denise is a very dependable, very trustworthy dog sitter. She stayed with our dog and turtle at our house and took excellent care of all! I believe it was her first turtle sitting and she did a wonderful job with him as well. We would highly recommend her for worry free pet sitting to anyone.

Kayla is awesome! We enrolled our two and a half month old Doberman Pinscher puppy in training classes learning how to do basic comands. She is very flexible with our schedule and we meet at a local park to do our training. Kayla connected with our puppy immediately. After our first class she was successful in teaching our dog the basic sit and stay. She really focuses on us the owners how to teach our puppy the correct way to train our dog. We have had a total of four classes and we have been successful in teaching our dog sit, stay, lay, come, paw, heel, long leash training and walk wonderfully on a leash! Since we meet at a local park there are lots of distractions like people, children, other dogs and even a horse and she was able to keep his attention and keep him focused on the tasks at hand. I would recommend her to anyone! I wish I knew about her sooner for my other pups!

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!

Christina and Tony are the best!! They care for your pet as if it was their own. Lots of love, belly rubs, walks, treats and everything else your furry friend needs while you're away, whether just at work or on vacation. The best part... you get pictures and texts of your pet so you know they're having fun while you're away. My dog LOVES them and goes crazy every time she sees them. What more can you ask for?! I highly recommend Woofs & Whiskers for all your pet care needs!!

Rover has been amazing for my furry trio - I finally feel like I can stay late for happy hour or go on a last minute weekend getaway and know that my pets are going to be taken care of. I've never had a bad stay on Rover and I love the photo updates!

Unbelievable! First time, Kathy came with four loaves of pumpkin bread and cooked gluten free for the celiac in our home. She spends five hours and left the house beautifully shiny, better than new. She treats us like family and is trustworthy and meticulous. We recommend hiring Kathy for any of your cleaning/cooking needs.

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! :-)

We hired Jacques and his team of pet companions for a 10 day vacation we went on and had him stay at our place.We also use them to do some regular dog daily walks. They are easy to work with and so compassionate about caring for our pets. We will only use them for all our pet care needs going forward

Beth from Canine Einstein is absolutely amazing! She came to my house last night and worked with my new adopted rescue beagle, Charlotte. She is 2 years old and hasn't had any type of training before. She's not housebroken, she begs for food during all mealtimes, she jumps on tables (something I've never seen any dog do before!) and is pretty much into everything. We needed some serious help!! Beth is very knowledgeable, extremely patient and very soft spoken too. By the end of the night she had Charlotte sitting and staying (which is something she's Never done). Her normal things were to jump on you, stand on all 4 legs, stand on 2 legs while leaning against you, or to lay down and sleep but never sit!! Now Charlotte is becoming a completely different dog thanks to Beth. It's like night and day and I'm so relieved. Today Charlotte and I worked on all of the things that we learned last night and she's been doing fantastic. Beth is a truly gifted woman!

    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.

      I have two mixed breed dogs that must be kept away from other dogs. Only one needs to be walked. The other is older, but also very aggressive and is best confined to my back yard.Here's the rub: I'm hoping that someone will have availability during the Xmas holidays.I know that this is a pretty late request, but I have to ask! With humans (kids and adults) they are very friendly.
