FAQs

  • Introduction

    Hiring a pet sitter when you’re planning a trip can help relieve the stress of leaving your pet behind. When you’re confident you have a qualified, responsible pet sitter, you can feel good knowing your pet is safe. Additionally, if there’s an emergency that requires veterinary care while you’re away, your pet will have access to timely help.

  • How much do pet sitters cost?

    The average cost for a pet sitter who visits your home to feed and check on your pet is $15 per hour. A sitter for a puppy or dog that requires extra care usually costs more. However, overnight care may have a lower hourly rate, and sitters may offer package deals for full weeks.

  • How do pet sitters charge for service?

    Pet sitters may charge in several ways, including by the half hour, by the full hour, daily, or with overnight or full week rates. Pet sitters who offer additional services, such as dog walking, grooming, or administering medications to your pet, may charge extra for those services.

  • Do pet sitters need insurance?

    Although it's not legally required, pet sitters may want insurance to cover the cost of accidental damage to a client’s home. Pet sitters also should have coverage in case anything goes wrong when caring for a pet, such as it getting lost or injured. Additionally, if a pet sitter gets injured on the job, insurance could cover their medical care costs.

  • Do pet sitters come to your house or do they pick your pet up?

    Pet sitters typically come to your house to care for your pet. You may be able to arrange for a pet sitter to pick up your pet. Alternately, you may opt to take your pet to stay with a sitter in a boarding situation.

  • Do pet sitters stay overnight?

    Some pet sitters will agree to stay overnight with your pet, although not all offer this service. This can be especially helpful for pets that get stressed when left alone for long periods. Having the pet sitter stay overnight ensures your pet’s needs can be met at all times.

  • How do you tip pet sitters?

    Tipping is optional with most pet sitters, but it's appreciated. A tip says thank you to your sitter for taking care of your pet and helps ensure good future care. Providing a tip that's 15% the total bill is standard, and it shows your sitter that you value the service they provided.
