Very professional pet-sitter. From the beginning of the interaction and the interview process, we were impressed with Ms. Cuellar's precise questions regarding all animal care matters and her thorough knowledge on a wide-range of pet subjects. During our one-week long vacation, she made regular contact with us and gave updates on the animals and even sent little videos of them as well. We came home to find our pets well-cared for and our home in good condition. Very much appreciate Ms. Cuellar's pet-sitting and she'll be the first person we call anytime we need a pet-sitter!

Candy is an excellent dog sitter, I was so impressed! She is very knowledgeable about dog care and clearly cares about the dog she is entrusted with. My dog is not as easy-going as some but she approached him so well and I was very impressed with her. She sent updates regularly, which were so funny and caring, I knew my dog was in good hands. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a dog sitter! Thank you, Candy!

I had never used a pet sitter before and was desperate to find someone to watch my 3 dogs on the 4th of July so we could attend our nephews wedding in Pa. (who knew how difficult that would be!) Ali watched my 14 year old blind/deaf dog and my 8 month old and 8 week old puppy. She was so attentive and even sent me pictures while we were gone! 2 weeks later we had her come back for training of the babies and they went crazy when they saw her... it was like she was a member of the family. I have done a lot of internet searching for dog training and am amazed at what Ali was able to accomplish in just one hour. I cannot recommend her enough, she is wonderful!!!

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❤️😸😸

Andrea is an outstanding pet sitter. She took such wonderful care of our dogs and cats while we were away on vacation. Andrea even taught Loki to sit pretty while we were on vacation. Best sitter we have ever had!

Could not have asked for a better cat sitter while I was away! When I met her, it was clear that she had an innate love for animals and I knew my cats would be in good hands. She sent me emails giving me updates on what she did and how the cats were doing. I plan to use her services in the future and HIGHLY RECOMMEND her to anyone needing a pet sitter. Thanks again, Megan!

My 2 Malamutes & I have moved several times around the country & I travel a lot for work. I have been here 5 yrs & Erica is the best dog sitter I have ever had, or even heard of. I've experienced very good and very poor (inc. family members) and no one is as reliable, thoughtful & caring as Erica. I once put out a bottle of antibiotics w instructions while I was away, but actually grabbed a pain killer. Erica caught it because she read the bottles instead of blindly giving it to my dog. That degree of attention to detail is something you cannot put a price on. She is always there for us and I trust her implicitly. She is worth far more than what she charges in peace of mind alone. Last, but hardly least, my dogs adore her!

We love Cindy and her From Wags to Whiskers team! We have used them dozens of times over the last 4 years and will never use anyone else. We know that "our kids" are well taken care of while we are gone. Cindy walks them, feeds them, administers their medications, plays with them and just loves on them. We can confidently enjoy our time away knowing that they are in such good hands. We recommend From Wags to Whiskers to anyone looking for a pet sitter because they are the best!!!

Rachel took care of my four cats and did additional chores such as collection of our mail, and watering my plants. She kept me informed of the kitty's status while we were away. If we need a pet sitter again we will definetly call her.

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.

Awesome pet sitter. My pets were very happy when I got back from my trip. One of them had an accident and she cleaned up ; like it never happened. Would definitely recommend to anyone with cats and dogs and even reptiles.

We love this service. This company is amazing with our furbaby. I knew this company was amazing based on the procedures just to get established as client - my baby was with the sitter and I was sitting on a plane at the Newport News airport - they treated him just like part of their family through the whole ordeal. If I cannot be with him - I am glad to know he is in a good home while I am away. She sends pictures and videos throughout his stay - because she knows how much he means to me. I highly recommend.

Jacqui has been my pet sitter for four years. She has worked with every age from puppy through senior for me and has managed to befriend a particularly skeptical Great Dane along with four others. They adore her and watch for her arrival a couple of days even after we get home from vacation. She also regularly does let outs and evening feeding on weekdays that I have work. I'd be lost without her, as would my dogs. I quite honestly wouldn't trust anyone else like I do her.

Michelle was a great childcare provider. She provided my two young children with great activities. She also managed to wash my dishes, clean up my living room, and folded my laundry. She went above and beyond the call of duty.

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.
