Fran B. says, "Dean was a excellent trainer for our older dog and new puppy. He helped us lessen the anxiety of gettiing our older dog to accept his new baby sister. He also showed us how to fix some with our older dogs behavioral issues. He would send follow up emails, dog articles, and would call to follow up after each session. We appreciate his dedication and love for these animals. Highly recommend him." Read more

CPR and basic first certified in pet care. I started my business after the passing of my best friend, my dog. In his memory I run my business. Too pass on some of the love he gave to me. So I take it very seriously, personal and with a warm heart and gentle hands. When boarding with me I provide the food, homemade nutritional snacks, a bath, nail trim and ear cleaning as part of their care (no additional cost). Except no bath for cats, I learned that the hard way. We care for dogs, cats and caged animals (example: rabbit). We look forward to hearing from you soon. 210-788-2121/Jakki Everything, at the end of the day I have no stress....

Your dog sitting questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much do dog sitters charge?

Dog sitters charge $10 to $20 per hour for a drop-in visit or $35 to $65 per night, depending on your location. Dog sitters may charge more for holidays or if your home is outside of their service area. Costs may also increase if your dog has special needs.

Do you tip dog sitters?

While dog sitters do not expect a tip, tipping 15% to 20% of the total bill is common. Tip on the low end if your sitter did everything they agreed to do. Consider tipping more if they exceeded your expectations or handled any unexpected problems or emergencies.

What do dog sitters do?

Dog sitters come to your home and care for your dog while you are away. Drop-in visits typically last 30 minutes and include feeding, walking, and some play or cuddle time. Overnight visits may be at your home or the sitter's home and give your dog more time and attention than a drop-in visit.

Hiring a dog sitter gives your dog more personalized attention than a pet boarding facility and is a great option for dogs who deal with separation anxiety, dogs who do not do well in a kennel or around other animals, and older, less agile dogs.

Do dog sitters stay overnight?

Most dog sitters offer drop-in visits and overnight options, with overnight stays typically costing more. Many dogs do fine with only drop-in visits for feeding, walking, and some attention. Consider overnight sittings if your pet has high separation anxiety or needs more attention than a short visit provides.

How do I choose the best dog sitter near me?

When searching for a dog sitter, be sure to:

  • Choose a sitter who has a licensed and insured business.
  • Ask if they belong to any professional organizations, such as the National association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS), Professional United Pet Sitters (P.U.P.S.), or the Association of Pet Sitting Excellence (APSE).
  • Review their profile and feedback on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Ask for and check their references.
  • Arrange a meet and greet beforehand to make sure he or she is a good fit for both you and your dog.

What questions should I ask when hiring a dog sitter?

Ask the following questions to ensure you find the best dog sitter near you:

  • What experience do you have?
  • Do you specialize in specific animals or breeds?
  • Do you belong to any professional organizations?
  • Are you trained in pet CPR?
  • Can we schedule a meet and greet beforehand?
  • What is included in your standard rate?
  • What is the rate if I have more than one dog?
  • How and when do I pay for the service?
  • Do you offer dog monitoring service?
  • How long do you stay?
  • Can you give my dog medication?
  • Do you offer any house-sitting services in addition to dog sitting?
  • What is your protocol if there is an emergency or if my dog needs immediate medical attention?
  • How do I get in touch with you while I'm away?
  • Will you update me after each visit?

Reviews for San Antonio dog sitters

Cheyenne M.
Dean worked with myself and my Tasmanian Devil of a Corgi! He really helped work through all of the behavior problems that I was having with my dog and gave me a variety of methods to practice the obedience on my own time. He also took the time to teach Charlie some cool tricks! I would highly recommend Dean to anyone who has a dog and wants to work on obedience or just teach an old dog some new tricks!!
