We had our first session with Andrea yesterday and it was wonderful. She was great with both of my dogs and gave me a lot of insight on what was going on with my dog and her anxiety. I am looking forward to our future sessions so we can have a calm, confident pup!

Erika is my go-to person for dog training and dog sitting! I have two rescue dogs, both adopted at the age of two with no training. Needless to say I needed help badly! Now my pups sit and wait to go in and out of doors, and they will do most anything for a treat. It's also nice to be able to go out of town and not have to worry about my fur babies! She's the only one I trust with them (and also to stay at my home with them), and she sends me plenty of updates while I'm gone.

Paula has been working with my terrier mix for the last two years; on the average she walks him three times a week. Since she has been walking him, my dog is much more well-behaved when I walk him. Paula is extremely dependable and trustworthy. She is flexible as well by helping me in last minute situations when my work schedule unexpectedly changed. I can call or text her about any questions I may have. She has given dietary and treat recommendations. I highly recommend this outstanding lady for any pet-sitting, walking or training needs.

I always have anxiety about leaving my kitties when I go on vacation and this year we found out one of our cats George was diabetic and this added more stress. Laura and Elise came over for a long home visit and took a ton of notes and seemed genuinely concerned about making myself and my cats their priority and this made me feel so much better. When I was on vacation I looked forward to my reports which included individual pictures of my cats and I could see that they were happy and comfortable. They are definitely going to be my pet sitters for all future vacations. Also wanted to add that they did all the extra things like scooping out litter boxes, sweeping up litter and mail, etc. I was happy to come home and everything was in perfect order❤️😸😸

Have not used her services as yet but she was very responsive to my questions and I feel very comfortable with her as she seems quiet compassionate.. We have set up a meet and greet to get to know each other and this also eases my anxieties.. I'm looking forward to meeting with her and hopefully a long relationship with the cat / pet sitting services she offers.

Stephanie was fantastic with my dog Adi. She clearly knew what she was doing and she was more than happy to answer all of my questions. Training a dog is more than the pet it is so much about the owner and how they behave and she helped me to understand that. I would recommend her to everyone I know with a dog.

We were a little worried because this would have been the longest we would be gone from our pup but Paw Addicts paired us with a fantastic family! A special thank you to Lita who, not only sent us multiple pictures a day, but also gave our pup the extra attention he needed. Thank you SO much Paw Addicts Pet Care Services!

    I clean the indoors and outdoors of homes and businesses. I also house sit along with housekeeping. I do almost everything you can think of when it comes to housekeeping- laundry, floors, dusting, windows, carpets, dished, ceiling fans, etc. Anything you may want or need done I can do. I also don't mind doing lawn care such as flower beds, mowing grass, and weed eating. I have done child care since I was 11 years old and have two wonderful children of my own ages 9 and 5. I love children and they usually tend to click with me quickly.

    I'm just getting started in this sort of work. I'm a retired academic librarian who has had some experience working with veterinarians. I've owned dogs all of my life and a few cats plus several horses. I'm familiar with the care of these animals. I can feed and water pets, give medicines and take them to their veterinarian's appointments, offer playtime, walk pets, etc. I truly love animals and will offer gentle, thoughtful care, as well as be reliable and trustworthy in my dealings with the owners.

    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.
