Jack was absolutely wonderful with out pets. We have 4 of them, one of which is a 13 year old standard poodle who suffers from emotional detachment disorder every time we leave him, even for a day. He loved Jack, and our Yorkie could not wait to see him everyday! I felt so confident and comfortable for the first time ever leaving our pets with a pet sitter. We also have 2 cats which were so much calmer when we returned than normal. We have already hired Jack for 2 more vacations and have recommended him to a friend as well. We can not thank him enough!

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!

Debbie took great care of my pet cat (and house!) when I went away for a 5 day vacation in August, and I would absolutely use her again and again in the future. The things about Debbie and her services that impressed me the most: she was very reliable, very competent, very trustworthy, and very flexible with her scheduling to suit my needs. Now what more can a pet owner ask for in a pet sitter?! She is like “the perfect” pet sitter in each of those categories. I will say that because I had never needed a pet sitter before, I was reluctant to give a “stranger” a key to my house and to trust them to take care of my cat and to stay in my house while I was in another state, but after meeting with Debbie for a while I just knew she would treat my pet and my home with the finest of care and she did just that. I can say without a doubt that knowing Debbie was “in charge” of my cat (and even my house in the unlikely event a pipe broke or something while I was away…an added bonus!) truly allowed me to enjoy my vacation so much more; I honestly felt as if a family member or close friend was taking care of things and that was priceless. Debbie did an A+ job and I am so happy to now have a great pet sitter when I need one!

Liz was very professional and caring with my cats. She got 2 of my feral cats to come out which they usually never do for New visitors. She sent me pictures everyday while I was away. She even did a few extra things like taking the trash out and she sent me pictures of my cats everyday while I was away which I loved. Great pet sitter and person.

Peggy Plummer-Menapace watched our lively Irish setter for us, and they immediately became best friends. I doubt that anyone could be more conscientious or considerate regarding either your house or your pet. Thanks again, Peggy.

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 adopted my dog when he was 6 years old. He was dog aggressive and weary of strangers. He absolutely loves Pilar, and she does a wonderful job with him. She is so patient with him, she even got him to be comfortable with another dog in my house. (Which is a big stride from where he came from). She also does a great job when teaching me new things to implement in my training which have made life a lot easier. Highly recommend using her!

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.

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!!

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! :-)

Donna is professional, punctual, attentive and absolutely wonderful with my pups! They immediately bonded with her and she with them! She took great care of them while I went on a business trip, and administered their meds as directed. Donna also kept in communication with me, providing updates and even sent me a pic of my pups with hearts which was totally awesome! I highly recommend Donna Perona as a dog sitter! 🐶🐶

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.

Jen has been walking our two dogs (11 yrs and 2 yrs) for almost a year now, and we are so fortunate to have found her! She is extremely reliable, flexible, and responsive. She always sends me texts to let me know she's been to the house (and what the dogs did on their walk), and lets me know if anything seems off in their behavior/routines. She was also extremely helpful with advice about training/behavior issues with our new rescue pup. I work in Manhattan and have a long commute-- sometimes things come up last minute and Jen is always available to help if I need an extra visit. I have no reservations recommending her service.

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.
