Amy was a wonderful doggie/house sitter!! She communicated daily and sent me pics of my babies. I highly recommend her and will definitely ask her to care for my fur babies again.

Every experience I've had with Wags has been fantastic! The sitters write short summaries of what they did during their visit with your pet, how your pet was that day, etc. My kitties have always been well taken care of!

So far our experience with K-9 Companion Pet Services has been great! After just one session (and following through on our homework) we have seen a difference in our two dogs. We are positive that further sessions will only make our dogs more obedient!

Michael is the dog whisperer! I rescued Julie from the Houston SPCA on July 22nd after getting her home we quickly looked at each other like what have we gotten ourselves into? This pound puppy is cra cra! She was an owner surrender then adopted and quickly returned to the shelter because “she was to hyper” my husband and I made a promise to Julie that she was a good girl deep inside and we wouldn’t give up until we helped her find that good dog behavior we both just knew she had it in her! We took her to the vet and put her on m do for her sever anxiety issue that helped she calmed down but she was still clueless to any basic commands. I decided to look for a trainer to work with Julie for the behavior and anxiety issues we were seeing. I found Stealth K9 and contacted him asking about the cost for board and train. His quote was hundreds cheaper than the rest and his reviews were great he was very responsive I hired him right away! He came and picked Julie up the same day Within 4 hours of reaching out for help. When he arrived Julie did not like him at all because she didn’t know him, she actually bit him out of fear within minutes of him meeting her, that didn’t phase him at all! He was persistent with her and before he even left the house with Julie he had her healing next to him on the leash! He was there for less than 30 min. My husband was blown away. I get daily updates on Julie but after only 3 days of training he sent me a video of Julie’s progress I was in shock completely blown away. Julie loved him she was 100% fixated on him! She was already doing sit stay, heal sit and she was doing it with major noise distractions. He was using positive reinforcement by pet and praise no treats I love this style! I want my dog to perform her commands all the time not only for food. Michael and his team of trainers work day and night training the dogs. Julie has had multiple different trainers all day long so she is taught to take the commands from everyone not just 1 person she has shown no further aggression not even with new trainers she hasn’t worked with yet or doesn’t know. There aren’t enough words to express how great everyone has been with my Julie girl! I am so grateful that I found Michael and he is making it possible for me to fulfill our promise to Julie that we will never give up on her or take her back to the shelter we promised to get her the help she needs and we absolutely have.

Carmen is knowable with dogs of all breeds and ages. We have an elderly dog who takes meds. That was no problem for this pro! We have used Harleys pet sitting many times, and will continue.

Rachel was an excellent sitter for my cat and dog. She pet-sat, and also house-sat for me, and was very good about responding to messages and checking in. I'll definitely be hiring her again.

Gwen is an excellent pet sitter. She is knowledgeable on many breeds and behaviors of aminals and can interact with them. She is trustworthy and reliable. Gwen provides a level of service that far exceeds boarding a pet.

The pet sitters were easy to work with and kept me updated daily. That fact alone helped me feel comfortable being away from my animals.

I have known Debbie for many years. Your pets will feel very comfortable with her. She has taken care of our dogs cats and horses on many occasions and they always seem happy to see her come through the door. When she comes to sit your home and pets you will find your home in the same order as you gave it to her. Highly recommend!

I can not say enough about how AWESOME Sheena is when it comes to training your dog. We have a Cane Corso and she is the best. I love her climb command. Several times I have had a contractor or someone come in and they had no ideal she was even there. One guy asked me if she was real because she had been so still and quiet. I can have a house full of kids running around and if I put her in a down command or climb she never leaves that command. I never knew how great it is to have a well behaved dog. Shenzi walks so well on her leash heeling perfectly. If you are having any issue with your dog or need any kind of training. I highly recommend Sheena. I took Shenzi in to be groomed at a pet store and everyone in there was complimenting on how well behaved she is. The owner wanted to know who my trainer was so she could send some of her clients to her. No matter where we go I always get compliments on her behavior. Love Love Love what she has done for Shenzi and our family. Thank You Sheena!!!

    I wanted to send a quick message to let you know how pleased I was with America C. this past weekend. She really showed great concern and care for my 2 dogs and was very descriptive in her messages to me while I was away on vacation. By far, she has been the best pet sitter I've had. I would really like to keep using her from here on out as the pet sitter for my pets. My dogs really liked her and she just took such good care of them. Please, if it's possible I really want to keep America as my pet sitter from here on out. It was a great experience and I knew from the "get go" upon meeting her, my dogs were in excellent hands with her. I am truly a satisfied and happy client!

        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.
