Earlier this year we went on a short vacation, the first since we became homeowners, and for lack of forethought our only option was to board our cat for the 3.5 days we were gone. While she made it through okay, we couldn't help but think it would be less stress for everyone involved if we just let her stay at home and had someone check in on her, so we began shopping for pet sitters prior to our long vacation this fall. To give some context, we had certain criteria for a pet sitter. We didn't want someone who we couldn't trust to take the job seriously, and truly wanted to hire someone who does this primarily for a living. There's a measure of trust that goes into this - you're giving someone virtually unrestricted access to your home and hoping that they will take care of your beloved pet as you would. It's a tall order. We had quite a few respondents to our postings, and out of all of them we chose Helene after our initial meet and greet. The things that stood out to us the most were Helene's earnest interest in pet care, her depth of knowledge, and her bonded/insured practice. This is her profession, not just something to make some money on the side. Helene asked all the right questions of us up front, which is what we were looking for. I'm happy to say things couldn't have gone better! We left on vacation for 12 days this autumn and received daily updates via email to let us know that our cat was being well cared for. We asked Helene to stop by for half hour daily sessions, inclusive of feeding/maintenance/play, and it seems to have gone off without a hitch. It was really great to have one less thing to worry about, and they seemed to have gotten along very well. We will definitely be contacting Helene again in the future for any pet sitting needs and encourage anyone reading this to do so as well.

Angela was just what I was looking for in a dog sitter! I had no doubt Sonic was loved and cared for when I was gone and appreciated the updates she sent me throughout his stay. Her services and expertise gave me peace of mind so I could enjoy my vacation! She was also very flexible and fair

Susan is an awesome pet sitter!!! She has been taking care of our cats for years. We never worry when we go out of town. Her veterinary experience is an added plus. If there ever is a problem, she will know what to do. You can tell she really cares about animals.

I cannot say enough great things about Dina. Dina is my first pet sitter and from the start she made me feel very comfortable. Dina makes sure to send text messages and pictures to let me know how my pets are doing. My dogs are not the easiest, and Dina has such compassion that within a day my dogs consider her part of the family (and so do we). I HIGHLY recommend Dina!!!!

This is my first time hiring a pet sitter for my two cats. Diane did a great job taking care of my two cats. She kept me informed about how they were doing while I was out of town. I am very happy with the service I received and would highly recommend Diane as a pet sitter!

We made plans for a trip and then learned that our cat sitter, a neighbor, would not be available. We came to Thumbtack for help and Susan responded promptly. After talking to her on the phone we felt comfortable and invited her to visit us and our kitty. We became completely comfortable after meeting her and her husband. She took excellent care of our cat while we were away. We will definitely hire her again.

Fantastic pet sitter, was able to create a bond with our VERY picky cat. Always sends us updates at the start and end of the visits. I know our cats are in good hands and that she won't hesitate to contact us if there are questions.

RE: Michelle Dello and Bow Wow Pet Services I moved back to Woodstock, IL from Washington, DC, temporarily to care for my elderly mother, who was rapidly failing. I brought my three cats to stay with me in my mother's home. One of my immediate concerns after arrival in the midwest was that I needed to find assistance in caring for the cats, since I make somewhat frequent work trips. I did some research on availability of pet sitter organizations in the area, talking with vet clinics, shelters and friends. I also checked online for appropriate websites. Michelle (and her company, Bow Wow Pet Services) was one of the first I spoke with about our situation. She was immediately responsive, and spent a good deal of time visiting with me, the cats, learning about our needs, describing her professional experience and the services she can provide. Since October, Michelle has been our regular cat care provider. She is very reliable, efficient, loves and understands pets and their owners. She has been very considerate when emergencies arise and I have asked for her help with short notice (I try not to do this, but sometimes it happens). She has been understanding about working in our household at a difficult time in our family's life, and has handled certain situations with kindness and grace. Michelle is also very good at communications (electronic and otherwise) to report on the status of the cats at feeding time, and to share details of their kitty antics while I've been away. She provides a sense of reassurance that all is well, often with a nice element of humor. I highly recommend her to fellow pet owners. And BTW, she is a lovely, energetic person with a very active family life. It's all good. Christine Richardson

I have utilized From My House To Yours pet sitting service for more than six years now. Karen and her team have taken excellent care of my dogs and my home. They have provided pet visits during the week while my husband and I are at work and also when we are on vacation. Karen and her team are loved by my dogs. My dogs look forward to seeing their pet sitter and I am confident of the care that is provided to my dogs when I am away from home. I highly recommend the service they provide and I am confident of the love that they show to the pets in their care.

Lisa has been my pet sitter for over 4 years now. Loyal, trustworthy and dependable are her 3 greatest attributes and the most important part is my dogs just love her! She is just great with them! She has even rushed one of my dogs to my vet when she was at my house pet sitting. My dog cut herself on my fencing deep enough to require stitches. I highly recommend her!

    My experience as a pet sitter for "At Your Home Pet Sitting has been wonderful! The Biggest problem in having an extraordinary partner is that I will never be happy working for anyone else. Thanks, but you have really limited my career options because I have no other options but to follow you wherever you go. Thank You!!!

    Robert was amazing in taking care of my dog. He was extremely professional and responsive. I loved getting photo updates of how my dog was doing. I also greatly appreciated that Robert was trained in pet CPR and was independently insured - definitely kept my mind at ease whilst I was gone. I recommend Robert and the Pigglesworth Pet Project very highly!

    Even though I didn't eventually need a walker, I was impressed with the prompt, polite, and accommodating responses from your employee. If I should need dog walking services in the future, I surely will contact you.

    Jenn is everything you could want in a pet sitter and more! My cat does not warm up to strangers whatsoever, that's why his name is Fraidy. Jenn did a great job with the usual stuff--feeding, cleaning the litter box and so on, but she truly EXCELLED in connecting and making friends with Fraidy. She is patient, kind and affectionate. She took the time to get to know him. I have never used a pet sitter before and was nervous about leaving my cat with a stranger and handing over the keys to my house. She put me at ease too. She gave me updates, texts, photos and even sent me a video to relieve my worries--without being intrusive or excessive. Jenn is caring, reliable and professional. She truly exceeded my expectations.

    Denise has been cat sitting for me for about a year and I could not be happier. Not only does she scoop the poop and feed and water my fur baby, she takes the time to pet and brush her. She is a cat and dog owner so she knows the ins and outs. I definitely would recommend Denise to care for your pet.

    Mike is professional, punctual and trustworthy. He did a great job taking care of two indoor cats and a feral colony of 10 outdoor cats while I was out of the country for several weeks. He sent pictures and updates nearly every day. Would hire again without hesitation.

      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.
