I love animals and have knowledge of animal care. I am dependable and responsible and also work as a professional dog walker/pet sitter for a private pet sitting company. I started out as taking care of several neighborhood dogs. Safety is my first priority. I am a nonsmoker with my own reliable transportation with a valid driver's license. I am willing to drive within a 7-mile radius of my house. I have several families within my neighborhood and clients that live in the Bellaire area.I have been doing this for 3 to 4 years. They have dogs and cats, and one family has a dog and a bird. I have several clients that have 2 or more dogs and overnight sit for them I offer pet sitting/dog walking and house-sitting. I have a 10 year old Schnauzer who is considered one of our family.My prices are based on how many animals you have and how far I have to travel. I love animals and they have different personalities ,different breeds and most of them are rescue animals.Some of them need more love and attention and I make a special effort to find out information about each animal for safety and any issues that might come up. Some of my clients have animals that have anxiety when people leave and need to know while taking care of the animals and home and the environment surrounding the area. When I work with new clients I am willing to do a meet and greet before or answer any questions they have. I work with all kinds of customers. I have clients that take very excellent care and treat the animals as a family member. Clients expect good care I also collect information on all animals as to where to take them in an emergency or anything that comes up .See more

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.
