"When I first spoke with Kristen and I told her all my concerns, I thought she would tuck tail and run. But she did not. Prior to placing my listing on Thumbtack, I had spoken with quite a few trainers and the feeling I received from them was not about loving the dog so much as the money. It seems the ones that cost the most cared the least. I had enrolled Sophie in training at Petsmart and that turned out to be a waste of time, money and effort. Petsmart training. My conversation with Kristen was a bit lengthy and I could tell that she has a genuine love for dogs. I was still a bit nervous after all we were strangers. The Pre-Kristen Era: Sophie is an 8 month old Lab Mix. She is full of energy and walking her was a nightmare. The pulling, the walking from side to side and jumping. Of course bolting through the door and running through house like a wild banshee. She ignored my calls to come and our walks were strictly potty walks; not to mention the money I spent on puppy pads. I kept potty pads in every room of the house. Handling her was becoming more difficult with each passing day. I knew I had to do something, so I decided to give Kristen a try. I was a little nervous, I didn’t know much about her other than what I learned from our conversations and read on the site. She picked up Sophie on September 4th and she would be gone for two weeks. She sent me pictures and progress reports. When Sophie returned on September 19th, I was blown away. In just two weeks, Kristen transformed Sophie into a well behaved young lady. She taught her to walk up the stairs gracefully. She sits at all doors and waits before entering or exiting, she is not all over the place when we walk. I stop, she sits. She lays on her spot oblivious to what is going on around her and most of all she has not had an accident in the house since she has been back. It is amazing what Kristen did in just two weeks. I suspect if she stayed with her longer, who knows, Sophie could possibly prepare gourmet meals or at least help with the laundry. We met at a location of my choice and we went through every command until I was comfortable with handling her. She did not bring Sophie back and leave me on my own with no guidance. She sent me a list of command words and instructed me how to use them. She contacted me to ask me how it was going and to address any problem areas. I am so glad I chose her. The only regret I have about the entire process; I did not do it sooner. She is the best because she loves what she does and loves dogs. Seriously, if you are experiencing behavior problems with your puppy or dog, contact Kristen and in just two short weeks, you will be amazed at the results."

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.
