I was on craigslist looking for a sitter for our puppy...Does this seem a little spendy to you?

I live in an are that is very low cost living.
This is the add:
"Are you looking for a pet sitting that will travel to your home, stay the night and take care of your pets while you're away.
I am a vet tech student at NDSU that will help you with:
During the day potty breaks- $10.00/visit
Over night pet sitting in your house- $40.00/ night
Giving your pets daily medications while you're away or if you don't feel comfortable doing it- $10.00/visit
Or any other needs you and your pets might have such as walking, yard clean up or trips to the dog park
I can also do nail trims, nail filing, ear cleaning, teeth brushing, and giving baths

Please email for more information.
I am available most weekends, over thanksgiving, and weekday evenings/ visits during the day are not a problem.

  • That's lower than the average, at least for around here. Most people here charge $15-20/day and around $50 for an overnight.

  • Sounds very reasonable to me. I know several pet sitters that charge more then that.

  • Actually that sounds very reasonable. A friend of mine does pet sitting at 15 a visit. 55 a night to stay.

  • I think it reasonable as well. Do you have family that could help maybe? I keep my SIL dogs for her all of the time. I do not charge her, I just do it to help her out.

  • Sounds reasonable to me. Especially for a puppy. Puppies have to be let out WAY more often than adult dogs and have to be watched closer (so they dont chew things, eat things they shouldnt etc.)
