I cannot say enough about the quality of care Shawna provides. We have two dogs who are treated as our children. When we started using Your Home Pet Care, Shawna took all of our requests in stride. The interview process went smoothly and we didn't feel like we were signing our lives away with the amount of paperwork (as some other companies require). The pet care team has fantastic training in many areas including pet CPR. YHPC even has automated email notification with arrival and departure times as well as a visit note with pictures! This is such a unique feature in the pet sitting world and it offers us a moment of enjoyment when sitting at work or when out of town. Shawna is flexible and professional which is a definite plus when our schedules change last minute. We have total peace of mind knowing that Shawna is caring for our furry children during the day. We have used other pet sitting services, so we definitely know the difference between an ok, good, and great service. Your Home Pet Care is GREAT! Thanks you so much, Shawna!

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!

Angela showed up right on time. She took her time with my dog and let him get to know her before she started his groom. She was very gentle with him and my dog looked absolutely beautiful when she was done. I would highly recommend her.

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!!!

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!

Great pet sitter! Very attentive to my dogs needs. Emily went above and beyond to make sure my dogs were not only well taken care of but comfortable with me not being there. Emily was precise on their schedule of feeding and out times for easy stress free transition. She showed my dogs love as if they were her own. Outstanding worry free pet sitting! Thank You Emily!

I hired Comfort Crew Pet Sitters to care for our 12-year old kitty, Lily, as we'll be traveling extensively every month throughout the summer. Daniel was wonderful with Lily, and even texted me pictures of her and sent me daily pet care journal entries after he visited. Daniel also took care of our trash, recycling, mail, & packages in addition to caring for Lily--food, water, medication & litterbox duties. Their prices are competitive, they are licensed, bonded & insured, and I love their database system which allows clients to schedule services and pay for the services via PayPal. I couldn't be happier with the care Lily has received from Comfort Crew Pet Sitters, and I HIGHLY recommend the company to anyone who needs a professional pet sitter.

Our pets could not have been in better hands! Since we had not traveled in a while, we were concerned how our pets would adapt with us being gone. Having Chuck look in on them put our minds at ease. Chuck sent us texts and photos each day with a detailed update.He even had a checklist printout for what he did each day. We'd use Chuck again in a heartbeat! Thank you so much for petsitting with heart, Chuck!

I only trust Kim with Animal House to care for my dog and home when I travel. Kim is so WONDERFUL with animals- easy to see how much she loves her job! She has stayed in my home over extended times while we were out of the country and shorter weekend trips. I TRULY TRUST her to take care of my home and sweet dog while I am away!

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.

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.
