Shawna is incredible. I had a sudden personal injury that left me incapable of properly caring for my 14 year old lab with hip dysplasia. I had to transport both he and my 11 year old lab to board at my vet and Shawna did not hesitate to help and immediately put me at ease. She was very caring and professional during a difficult time. She has since been transporting my 11 year old lab to water therapy as well as pet sitting for him and our cat. She is always on time and responsive to texts. She provides easy pay options with Venmo, emails at each interaction and detailed follow up reports. I'm very happy with her service and feel lucky to have found her. I couldn't more highly recommend her.

Just had our first mobile groom experience and were very pleased with the great service Tammi provided! Very gentle with our 14 year old schnauzer who is blind, and has several health issues. Our pet was able to be groomed in her own surroundings with much less anxiety! Thank you Happi Tails!

Best Pet Sitting service I have used in many years and I have used multiple in different states over the last few years... Caroline (our sitter) is simply magnificent.. She is just AWESOME !!! She is on-time, gives me regular updates with pictures of my pups - Couldn't ask for more. My dogs seem to be loving it, as they are always energized and happy and positive when I come home

We feel so fortunate to have found Rutledge pet sitting. We were delighted to meet Andrea. While we were gone for a week she came over twice a day to take care of our cat's food, water, and litter box. She also played with her each time and emailed glowing accounts and pictures to us daily. We highly recommend her and will be using her again in the future.

I love Lynette.... most importantly my dogs did too. She's caring and compassionate towards all animals. She took great care of my babies. She's amazing with special needs and seniors. You truly could not ask for a better pet sitter. I have a hard time going off and leaving mine but she always kept me updated and sent pictures to reassure me they were fine. I was heartbroken when she moved. She is the best!!!

It is very difficult to find a skilled, competent pet sitter for four senior cats. The oldest one requires on-going medical care. Debra was perfect. She has the skills and knowledge. She communicated with me on an on-going basis to keep me updated about their eating and typical lack of friendliness with strangers. My oldest received her required meds according to the instructions. They did like her in their own aloof ways! I felt relieved when I knew a competent person was caring for my pets while I was away. Debra has the background, knowledge and skills to care for pets which require special care. I will definitely contact Debra for future pet sitting of my beloved cats.

Quit looking for a Pet sitter, you just found the right one for you & your pet Absolutely phenomenal! Tami is a completely different game changer when it com s down to "pet sitting" . You can feel the love radiate from your pet with Tami's presence. As most of us pet owners know... that speaks volumes , especially with cats. It gets better.... This is how AMAZING Tami is.... This is how the story goes... 👊🏻 I had read Tami's reviews and drove over to meet her last year.... lovely lovely person. Tami is very warm and somebody "I knew" I could trust with my pet.... Shortly after I was stuck in a foreign country and found out "my pet sitter" was refusing to give my cat his daily insulin injections. CAN YOU IMAGINE!!! I wanted to jump on the next airplane. ✈️ Instead I did the smartest thing .... I text Tami, explaining the situation that evening, Within 20 minutes Tami had picked up my Cat , she took his insulin & insulin injections , his prescription food , Tami took everything she felt was important to mittens. It was almost like Tami flew in like an eagle 🦅 and took control of a situation that could easily have become a pet owners worst nightmare ... Tami understands the importance of insulin injections, she becomes mom instantly , Tami has no problem calling the vet to confirm Medicine requirements / insulin injection requirement. Special diet needs , etc . to your pet Tami goes as far as familiarizing herself with your pets quirks, I received daily pictures of mittens making himself at home 🏡 Talk about keeping my soul 😊.. seeing pictures of mittens , happy. If you are a Pet Lover ... this is the sitter you are looking for ... seriously My cat mittens is an 8 year old white polydactyl , he is on daily insulin injections , he is on a special diet and Tami saved both my cat & I from a very terrible distressful situation that could of been deadly to my cat. I Highly recommend Tami Kind regards , Mary Wolf

Prestigious Pets is so professional - I love the email updates and knowing that my pet is in good hands. They were even able to dose medication for a small fee. This is my go-to pet sitting service.

Gail is simply the best. I needed to go out of town and naturally, I was worried about having a stranger in my home with my fur kids. Gail put all my nerves to ease. She is a pure animal lover, my kids instantly bonded with her during the meet and greet. She sent several updates while I was away, was thoughtful and made homemade liver treats that the kids loved, and had no problems meeting my somewhat complicated instructions for caring for my 3 dogs. I'm so glad I found her on Thumbtack. I will be using her for all my pet sitting needs in the future and highly recommend her.

By far the best when it comes to exotic boarding. I was nervous about leaving my sulcata tortoise, Jane, while I was gone for a week but I was reassured that she would be well taken care of by someone with experience taking care of exotics. Sure enough I came back to a happy and healthy tortoise. I will definitely be using again to board Jane and will keep them in mind for pet sitting my dogs too! Thanks for taking care of Jane!

Ralph got right to work when he arrived, and he had prior experience building my brand of motorized sit/stand desks. He was fast, courteous and helped clean up the cardboard/styrofoam mess. His prices can’t be beat! I will be calling him again.

We were worried to leave our pet cat Row Row alone at home while we visited our families over the holidays. Row Row is a senior cat who does have some health issues. Nicoles’ professionalism, flexibility, and experience put our worries to rest. We’ll consider her first the next time we leave town.

Really enjoyed working with this trainer, always had time to answer my questions and never acted like I was a fool for asking. So much knowledge and patience coming from one person. I felt that my time and my dog were a serious priority, and the training was definitely successful, completely worth ny time and money. Can't recommend enough.

Jennifer did exactly as she promised and then some! She was prompt in her arrival (*we have a Ring door bell that noted her entrance/exit times) and spent a lot of quality time with my cat! I received a text message w/ photo as discussed and to my surprise, a "report card" of how my kitty did while I was gone. (Yay for an A+!) I will definitely plan on hiring her in the future and recommend that everyone needing quality pet sitting services consider her for their future plans!

Martha has been a great pet sitter. She works around the tightly-regulated feeding schedule for our cat and shows our kitty lots of care. She sends us a text message every day with a picture so we can see how our cat is doing. We trust her with our senior cat completely and recommend her highly.

Dee's first time cleaning my house was a great relief! I am on housekeeping service no. 3 for the year, and I was almost convinced that I wasn't going to get lucky enough to find someone that was conscientious and took pride in doing a good job. Dee did a great job and will be my regular housekeeping service from now on!

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.
