What Are the Average Dog-Sitting Rates?

Generally, average dog sitting rates range between $10 to $20 a visit, according to How Stuff Works. The average rate for a dog sitter depends on a number of factors such as how many pets are in the house and how often the sitter must visit the house each day.

Dog sitters may charge more for other reasons such as whether the animal requires medication or regular walks. Sitters may also charge more if the location is out of the way from their normal route. Dog sitters that offer overnight services generally charge between $40 to $80 per night. Dog sitters may also charge more for short-notice visits.
