I am so glad that I found Sara. She is my new go-to dog sitter! I took my dog over to her home and she was immediately at ease, running around in the fenced back yard. Sara watched my dog for three days and did great. Sara was able to give her space separated from her other dogs, which I had requested because my dog is sometimes skittish. When I picked my dog up, she was calm and happy, which is not usually the case (usually seems freaked out when I go away). I think Sara really put her at ease. I look forward to having Sara dog sit for me again!

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.

I used Jordan as my pet sitter while i vacationed at the beach for a week and she did a wonderful job. It seemed like my little Papillon was so happy there with her and got a ton of attention and got spoiled, which i think was needed considering also a new baby at home which my dog isn't quite used to yet. i would certainly use Jordan again in the future and would recommend her to others as well.

I love the fact that you can see in Michele's face that she loves animals. She treats them as f they were her own and is very loving and kind to them. My little chichi cries when I go to bed without her. Michele said it would be fine with her if my little girl slept with her and would actually like it. I've had many pet sitters but she by far is the best ever and I highly recommend her. My dogs love her too and are happy and healthy when I pick them up.

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.

I can't say enough good things about Pilar. She looked after my dogs for about five years and did a stellar job, especially with my fear aggressive rescue. He was a handful, even known to bite, but he absolutely loved Pilar. She knew exactly how to handle him. She was also wonderful with my 15 year old girl who had incontinence issues. More than once, Pilar had to change her poopie or wet diaper. She always cleaned her up nicely and didn't make a big deal about it. Lastly, she valiantly defended both of my dogs when they were attacked by an unleashed dog in the neighborhood. I would employ Pilar still if I hadn't moved out of the area. We miss her terribly. Do yourself a big favor and look no further for your pet care needs... Pilar is the best!

Lisa is just so wonderful with my little pup! I have used a few different dog sitters, and Lisa is by far the most attentive and loving with my dog. Lola comes home happy and calm, so I know she is getting the attention and care I want for her while I am gone. Lisa is the best.

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! :-)

Patti has been my pet sitter for several years now. She always does an amazing job. She always sends me updates and lets me know how my animals are doing. Plus she brings in the mail and waters my gardens for me. I wouldn't trust anybody else to take care of my beloved pets.

Roberta takes the best care of our pup! As first time puppy parents, we were so worried to leave our girl while we went to work. Roberta is always reliable and gives us such peace of mind that our pup is in good hands. We love getting daily photos and seeing how happy and well taken care of she is.

I've used these services for a number of years and all my dogs loved having the sitter come over to my house to spend some time with them while we were away. I never had to worry about my dogs while I was away and trusted the sitter to come into my home. I'd recommend Mr. Biscuits to come and take care of your dog.

Brenda provides dog walking services for my puppy and has done so for over 5 months now. She is professional at all times and is accommodating with a changing walking schedule each week. On average, she walks for me about 3 days a week and is consistently reliable and available. She is great to work with and my dog very much enjoys her visits and walks. I recommend her work enthusiastically.

Robin has watched our pets over night and has also walked our dog, Gus, for us when we couldn't be there because of work. She is outstanding!! Our Gus adores her!! I've come home early and found that she doesn't cut the time short. We had a problem with this before, Robin stays as long as she says she will! And she is personal with our dog. She gets right down on the floor and plays with him. I would recommend her to any one that really loves their dog and wants him to know it!!!

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.
