How Much Should You Pay Your Pet Sitter?
Here’s an older post that needs updating. First published Jul 13, 2012.
Do you travel often or at least once a year and ask someone to come to your home to check on your cats or dogs? If so, what do you pay them? And what do you ask them to do – for example, for they stay overnight or just swing by two times per day? Do you have them do more than just feed the cat and clean the litterbox? I am sure it is different all over the world, but would be curious as to the different rates. This topic came about when Julie and I were commenting back and forth on the post, Cat Sitter Checklist – Pet Sitter List. When I tried to Google this topic of pet sitter prices, it seemed to be a popular one.
I know there are average pet sitting rates for:
- per visit
- overnight stays
- animals that have special needs
What do you pay your pet sitter and what do you have s/he do?
