Amazing two session community ed class! Rebecca gave some great tips, and after the two classes, I think Romeo advanced more than he did in his entire puppy class at one of the big box stores. After the first class and a bit of practice at home, he rolls over like a pro ;) I'm super impressed and am looking forward to getting Romeo in more classes!!

    I contacted Connie through a sitter website. She has taken care of my 2 Springer Spaniels and cat for me several times over the last few years. Most of the time she has stayed in my home for a week or longer. Connie is very trustworthy, dependable and uses good judgment. She will communicate with me while I am gone and let me know everything is just fine. It makes leaving the fur kids behind so much easier and less stressful knowing they are in good hands. Connie respects my property and things are always tidy when I get home. My pets love her and she loves them just as much.

      I will walk/exercise your dog(s) and water/feed them. I will take your dog(s)s to a doggie park for social and play time. I will do "in-home" visits to feed/water your cat, clean your litter box, feed birds, fish, water your plants, take in newspaper, etc. while you are away. I will take your pet to the groomer or veterinarian, if you need. I have years of experience with all animals (including horses). I love all animals but have an especially great passion for dogs! I am licensed and insured, and I have references.

          I do pet sitting, bathing and feeding while you are away on vacation. I have had dogs with me in my entire life and have two small dachshunds myself. I treat pets like family.

          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.
