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!

We started training our Weimaraner, Arnold with Nikki a few months ago when he was about 6 months old. (we should have started sooner) Arnold is a bundle of energy and we weren't getting very far training him on our own. I am extremely pleased with Arnold's progress since we started with Nikki. I knew right away we would succeed in helping Arnold become a behaved and loved family pet. I love our dog so much, and I would trust his life with Nikki, and that is saying a lot. We have more work to do, but training is actually fun and is quality time spent with your dog and with other dogs. Training can be private, or group and often there is nature hikes after training - which is the best thing! Suck it up and train your dog! You owe it to them and to yourself and society to have a well trained dog.

Chose Dog Gone Happy for Obedience training for our Husky. Christina did an amazing job and solved the problem we were having with chewing and counter surfing. During lessons Christina explained what we needed to do to maintain what she learned. Our Sapphire listens to commands on the first try and no longer pulls on walks. Life has gotten a lot easier. We recommend Christina highly.

    I am a pet sitter of small pets and do a little housecleaning for my clients. If there is anything else that they need while I am taking care of their pets, I try to help with that too.


    My job is to walk your dogs so they won't make an accident in your house, and it's fun to play with your pet while walking and sitting it.


    I will come to you to walk, play or medicate your pet. I have been around animals all my life. I work full time with a blind school that breed and train dogs to fulfill the lives of a blind person to be independent.


    Currently, I have four dogs, two cats, a hamster and a turtle. As you can see, I love animals and being around animals. I'm very friendly and laid-back. I enjoy being exposed to different breeds of animals. I find it intriguing to say the least.

    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.
