  • if she was my friend i would do it for free.....well i might do it for free even if she wasn't my friend lol. after all it's only a couple of minitues for like 4 days. she will probably offer you something even if you don't 'charge' anything ;)

  • If she is a friend I wouldn't charge anything. If this is a business deal find out what pet sitters charge. Where I live it is 18.00 for someone to come and let my dogs out to pee.

  • Look at www.care.com. They have a pet care section and you can see what people charge in your area . GL

  • She has seen a background check on me from another site...also the pet care isn't for another month so I guess they have a month to get to know me....they are also looking for a sitter for their kids one night out of the week. She wants the same person to do both.
