We love using Paws and Claws Pet Service and have been costumers for about a year. We have too very active Golden Retrievers and it is great to have them walked during the day when we are at work. We have also used their overnight pet sitting services and were very pleased. They are great about leaving notes and really seem to get to know your dog's personalities. It is wonderful to know that when we are away someone is watching our dogs who love them too!

Ryan was very professional and responsive from the very beginning. Since this was our first time hiring a pet sitter, we wanted to be cautious of who we were deciding to hire. I asked Ryan for a reference and he ended up giving me two, both spoke very highly of his work. His focus at all times was to connect with our dogs and make sure they were very well taken care of. He is extremely knowledgeable about dogs and pays attention to cues of how they are feeling. It's never easy to leave our pups behind when we go out of town but Ryan made us feel at ease by sending us pictures every day. We took a chance on Ryan and it was the best decision we could have made!

I have worked with Victoria in both grooming and training. She clearly loves her job. With grooming, she was always interested in new techniques and advancing her skills. She's patient and caring. With training, she's extremely knowledgeable. I learned so much from her! She's patient with both dog and owner, and I've yet to see a case she can't crack.

Eve Cooper is professional and an excellent pet guardian. She's taken care of our cat while we're out of town on more than one occasion and we plan to hire her again when we travel. She even followed up and offered suggestions to help the cat adjust to new environment and being alone while we travel. Your animals will love her! We sure do! Lori York, Beloit, WI

We give the dogs that we sit the same personal attention and love we give to our own!


I've been told that I have a calm, easy going nature and that the animals pick up on that. I always practice patience with my groom dogs, and am known for my gentle handling.


I love little dogs, so if you have a little to a medium dog that needs watching when you are at work or on vacation, I would love to do that for you. I have 2 little dogs myself, so I know what they need. I have a big backyard that is fenced in. I charged at $10.00 a day that your dog is in here. I would love to hear from you.


I have been a professional pet sitter since 2005. I am trained in med delivery and first aid. I love all animals, especially dogs, but I also sit for cats, lizards, birds and fishes.


I am a pre-vet student at the UW. I also have 8 years of professional experience with animals working as a veterinary assistant and working in kennels. I am available for dog walking, pet sitting, minor grooming (nail trimming, ear cleaning, anal gland expression) and can administer oral medications to dogs and cats


I'm able to handle all pets. I will do anything I need to for them, and I don't mind cleaning up after them.


I will give your best friend the care that they desire and more. You let me know what they like, and I take care of the rest.

I have shown dogs since I was seven. Dogs have always been a part of my life. Therefore, it's natural for me to want to pursue pet sitting full time.


I do bale hay and take care of animals. I can fix tucks and cut lawns and fix tractors and farm equipment. I can do almost anything.

  • 3 years in business

I would love to pet sit after work and some weekends. I really enjoy animals. I am a single lady with energy. I will treat your pets like my own and your children like my grandchildren.


I am a very responsible retired individual with considerable flexibility for scheduling



I enjoy tutoring kids, looking after dogs, or doing housekeeping. Please give me a chance to prove my work in your home.


I am a Madison-based dog walker. I also do pet sitting and day care. I love animals and have none of my own.

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.
