I had never used a pet service before, but I decided to try Madtown Pet Fairy when my schedule got busy with work. I’m so glad I did! Lindsey is amazing with my dog; she treats her as if she’s her own. She has always been very professional and prompt, and her communication is impeccable. Best of all, my dog is excited to see her every time she comes! Highly recommended!

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!

    Cherie was my boarder for many years. My girls a yorkie and yorkiepoo were always happy to go there. I have moved away aand wish I had her here. I have found a very good boarder that I am very happy with but they dont get the personal attention that they received with cherie. With trips and getting ready to move she went above and beyond to help me .

    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

        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.

        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.
