Jewlie is absolutely fantastic! She's always looking out for our pets and she's been watching our dogs since they've been puppies, I wouldn't go to anyone else. She keeps an eye out on behavior changes in our dogs in case they get into anything they shouldn't be. She sends us the occasional photo of our dogs playing in the yard which is just great! I put a lot of trust into her pet sitting skills and you can tell she takes this very seriously and she's never let me down. Highly recommended to anyone looking for quality pet care! :)

Amazing! Jen ran my two big dogs twice a week all last winter in rain or shine. She was a lifesaver and my puppies loved her. I highly recommend Jen to anyone looking for top pet care.

To whom it may concern: Cara provided pet sitting services in my home on numerous occasions beginning in November, 2012. Cara proved to be capable and responsible as well as a great communicator. During this time, I had no issues with the services she provided, in fact it was a relief to leave home knowing that my dog, Toby, as well as my home, were both so reliably cared for. Cara was on time and was wonderful in keeping me informed of how Toby was feeling and behaving. I recommend anyone that is looking for a pet sitting service to rely on Cara. I was fully satisfied and confident that my dog was in the best hands. Sincerely, Donna

Melody recently watched my two cats and she was amazing! We hadn’t been able to go on vacation since my cat was diagnosed with diabetes two years ago, and Melody went above and beyond all expectations. She took excellent care of both kitties and gave daily insulin injections to my diabetic cat. She sent many pictures throughout my trip and my pets loved her! I highly recommend hiring melody for pet sitting and I will definitely be going to her every time we will be out of town.

Just like most of you reading this comment I was tired of having to put my two cats in boarding when I travel. I found P&P from my leasing office who said they were currently the go to pet sitters for our building. They were extremely professional, organized, and obviously love cats. Bingo and Price were totally relaxed upon my return unlike the normal I hate you showdown we usually have after boarding at the vet. I also loved the fact that they took the trash out and cleaned extremely well around the litterbox. I highly recommended their services.

Jolene and her team of pet sitters provided wonderful care for our 3 pets (2 cats and a large dog). All of our communications were professional and it was obvious how much everyone at Sound Pet Eastside cares about animals. We were able to enjoy our family vacation so much more knowing our "children" were in such good hands. We'll definitely being using their services in the future.

Carol was the person that let adopt my cat and has taken exceptional care of him. She sends me updates on how he is with pictures and comments. He is a bit of a shy kitty that needs a little more attention. Carol and Dan are always sad when we come back from vacation because they love kitty so much. I believe that might be my kitty in the picture. Carol volunteers and fosters cats so she knows her stuff.I have had my kitty taken care of by Carol and Dan for 3 vacations over 2 years and trust their care. Barb Hillis

While visiting “Paddywhack” pet store I stumbled upon a business card for Nanny Dolittle. I’d been looking for a pet-sitter or someone who can drop in on a long work day and tend to my pack. Some time went by and we adopted a fourth rescue dog. Adjustment periods for the dogs can take some time and extra tending to, so I decided to call the Nanny. We met, reviewed each dog in depth, my expectations for her visits, their expectations and then we created a visitation schedule on the spot. She left with a key to our home and has been coming regularly for over a year. Nanny Dolittle provides loving care to my dogs that desire it most and endless ball throwing for the other two. She knows exactly what each one needs and intuitively reads them when she visits. I know this because she leaves a note at the end of her visit that describes her stay and interactions with them. What she writes is exactly what we would have done for them had we been home. In addition, we notice the difference in their energy, happiness and general well-being on the days the Nanny has visited. She is reliable, flexible, trustworthy, accommodating, gentle, caring and provides exactly what she promises. We feel lucky to have her in our pack and the dogs are always excited when we leave for work with the parting words, “The Nanny will be visiting with you today, just rest until her arrival.” Rachael Millikan Beyond Barking Animal Communication www.beyondbarking.com

Sarah took great care of our cat while we were away for a long weekend. We loved the picture & video updates and, most importantly, coming home to a calm, contented kitty! Sarah didn’t just come feed & clean the litter box; she spent quality time petting, grooming, and playing with him. She even watered the plants for us! We will definitely be calling on her again for future pet sitting needs.

About

We do dog and cat boarding, where we treat your pets like how they deserve to be treated, and they are not just stuck in a kennel all day. At the same time, they have their own kennel for their private time. We take all breeds, just not females in heat or plain old people-aggressive dogs. We also offer doggy daycare. We have a facility built specifically for doggy daycare, and we do not just put them in some remodeled warehouse or storefront. We also have a huge outdoor play area. Between the big climate-controlled room and the outdoor area, your dog will go home happy and exhausted. We do not discriminate against any breed, but we are very careful, and weed out any dog that might be a problem with the pack. We treat your pets like family!

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.
