The average pet sitting rates range from $10 to $20, as of 2015. The actual rate for pet sitting is influenced by external factors in a given situation.
The specifics that determine pet sitting rates include the number of pets, the species of pets, the timing of visits, the length of each visit and the number of visits. The location of pet sitting, as well as the different tasks involved in caring for the pet, also influence the rate. The rates are higher if pet sitting services are required after regular hours or overnight. The holiday season also has an influence on pet sitting rates.
