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.

I highly recommend Fureverpals for pet sitting. I had Marissa stay overnight over the weekend. Marissa was great with my dog who takes medication daily. I really appreciated the pictures and videos she sent. I was given many updates. I will definitely use their service again.

I haven't had a chance to use K-9's services yet, but the interview process has gone SO well. The interview went so great. Misty has been really responsive and followed up so well. I know that when she does pet-sit that it's going to go great!

I wouldn’t choose any other pet sitting company. Rachel treated our puppy Oliver like her own, and you can definitely tell she loves caring for canines. She cared for Oliver for 2 nights/3 days. She sent me pictures and videos at least twice a day each day. Her place is perfectly set up to care for your fur baby, and she’s very accommodating to your and your pet’s needs. I highly recommend her services.

Julia added me to the schedule late because I had last minute travel plans. She was very accommodating. I was a bit nervous at first because I had never used a service like this. I wondered would someone really come to check my cat? Is this safe? After meeting Louis I felt much more confident about the process. I was sent photos to my phone when they entering my home letting me know everything was in tact. Julia was very responsive and professional. I would definitely recommend them both for pet sitting!

Rachel was wonderful taking care of our fur babies while we were gone! She was very professional and extremely kind. Loved the fact that she came by twice to meet with us before our trip. She also didn’t mind me leaving a four page (novella) of all the do’s and Sony’s regarding each pet! We have four dogs and two cats, plus a very large aquarium with over 20 fish. She also took care of taking in our mail (and numerous packages) that we had arriving over the week. She even had to deal with housekeepers coming in and yard guys going in and out of the backyard during the week. She had no problem checking to make sure the gate was closed and locked after their visits. All in all she was exceptional! I would highly recommend her if you are needing pet sitting service!!!! Please give her a call! I also feel that her services are well worth the amount she charges. Thanks again Rachel!!! BTW, this is Dr Pinera’s wife (Carol) but, he agrees to everything I said above;-)! One last thing…Rachel sends pics of ur pets during her stay so that you see how happy they are when she is there!

Julia was the ONLY sitter provider who responded to my thumbtack request and she responded quite promptly when I was in a bind and needed pet sitting to start the next day. She responded quickly, I was able to talk to her within the hour, she sent me a quote for my needs after we talked through what I'd need, and she came the next morning with her employee partner to take my dog out. I was so relieved that she could cover my dog (and cat) while I was away because she needed to be exercised and to use the restroom. I was worried because Julia hadn't been able to make it over to pre-meet my dog but she text me right away upon the first visit and assured me everything was great, my dog was happy and responding well, and that all was running smoothly. She even brought in my mail and updated me on some mail items I'd been worried about. She sent pictures of my pets often while I was away, and let me know that all was good on the home front. I'd def recommend julia and her team and am happy to know I have a sitter family who knows and loves my furbabies.
