whats the going rate for a pet sitter?

I need a pet sitter for two solid months. I know a kennel will be extremely high, so I am going to look into a neighbor watching them. I have a small dog who would need to stay at the sitter home, and a cat that can probably be looked in on every other day. What would the going rate be?

  • I sit for a Portuguese Water Dog every day. I get paid $20-$40/day depending on if it is a full day or half day.

  • My friend(Ga) charges 15 a trip. so twice a day would be 30 and 3 times would be 45.

    It may be cheaper to have someone you know or just trust house sit depending on how much care you want the pets to receive.

  • I have a 14 year old neighbor boy who charges $12.00 per day, ask around the neighborhood.
