If you have a pet and know you’re going to be moving around the city for a majority of your time in Houston, we’ve got you covered. Your pets are incredibly important to you and we can help you get them taken care of while you are away. We would love to help you find a verified pet sitter or dog walker to help take care of your beloved furry friend.

There are a few options when it comes to finding the right pet sitter for you, and the two most popular ways would be the user-friendly apps called Wag! and Rover. Rover lets you create a profile for both you and your pet, predominantly dogs and cats, and finds people who are willing to help within your area. This app offers extremely affordable rates for pet care, usually between $20 to $25 a day for an entire day of watching them. There are also drop-in visits, which can range between $10 and $15 depending on the duration of their visit, in which you let the sitter have temporary access to your residence and ask them to watch the pet for 30 minutes to an hour.

As an alternative, Wag! is a similar business but usually focuses on dog walking as opposed to overnight stays. Overnight stays are offered on this app as well, but prices are more likely to vary than on Rover. You can request a 20-minute walk, 30-minute or even 60-minute walk with a pay-as-you-go approach, each with slight increases in cost. If you know you will need temporary pet care or sitting while you are staying with us at Premier Patient Housing, these are the smartest routes for you and your wallet.

Both of these apps are free to download, and we can help coordinate with any local sitters in the area who would be willing to help.
