Whatever I charge for 1 dog, I would add $5-$10 per additional dog

I think $40-$50 a day would be enough, just depending on how much attention they need as far as walking, meds, etc...

If you are asking about care for two full days and nights, plus half a day, I would charge $60 a day for three dogs. So, $120 for the two full days/nights and then $30 for the half day ($150 all together). The price would vary based on the distance your home is from mine.

I would charge 30 per dog per night.....theyll pay at least that much boarding them.

My fee is the same regardless of how many pets the client has me watch. In their home, it is $125 over a 24 hour period in which I am there for at least 15 hours of that time, and never leaving the pets home alone for more than 3 hours in any given stretch. I must leave to shower, eat and care for my own pets.

$40/day if I need to stay for 48 hours. This may be considered cheap for 3 dogs but as long as it isn't more than 4. By this time I'd raise the price to $50/day.

$200.00 plus mileage is what I would charge. Keep in mind are you providing good for Pet Sitter? If not, that sitter will be providing their own food and you would want to negotiate that price.

Depends on how big the dogs are, and how you are taking care of them. Are you simply feeding them, or do you have to exercise with them as well? Do you have to board the pets, or will you be transporting over to the house yourself? A good base pay for care is X an hour per pet. But you might have to lessen the costs just for courtesy sake. Personally, depending on that information alone, the costs could be 45-70 dollars a day for all 3 pets, but you might have to adjust it depending on the circumstances.

I do $60 for overnight and $20 per hour the dogs are being watched and entertained. Also, I would apply a $5 charge for every additional pet serviced. Approximately $270 for a FULL DAY of watching with little to no leaving. This sounds steep but you have to incorporate labor, transportation costs, feeding, watering, walking, and they also have someone watching their house.

At least 45 to 50 per night for one, that's the standard going rate I have seen so far. I would charge $10 additional for each pet.

I charge $20-$25 for the first dog and $15-$20 for each dog after the first. The price depends on distance from my home or ages of the dogs, I charge more for puppies because they are typically more work.

Pet sitting over night is usually a lot more pricey. Anywhere from $50-$75 per night is the average. three dogs is a lot however. I'd charge $75 a night. That is $25 per dog which is reasonable.

It would vary depending on the activity of the dogs, how far I were to drive, if medicine was involved. But my base figure would be $200 on up depending on the answers to the above information.

It's best to discuss it with the owner(s). What they can afford, and what you feel you should be compensated for that time, and then find a reasonable, agreeable middle ground you both can agree on.

It depends if I am going to your home or the dogs come to my home. Most would rather go to your home because it is easier for us and the dogs. To visit your home multiple times a day for two days, I would charge $40-$50. To stay overnight at your home for two nights, I would charge $50 (that includes gas getting to and from your home, depending on the distance).

Depends on how much work it is. Are they in daycare? are they kenneled? are there vet appointments during that time? normally 60 a day is fair. but if i have to take them places, they have special needs, or can't be kenneled then it will be different.

I charge $75 dollars per 24-hour care period for overnight stays. This typically covers 1 or 2 dogs, and may be higher for 3 dogs depending on their temperament and particular needs.

Most of the time when I am house sitting a dog I am not at their house all day so I charge per night, which I usually start at $50.00 per night. If I am asked to be at the house all day and night I would charge per hour I am there, between $15.00 and $20.00 an hour.

Because it's all day and overnight, I would charge $50 per full day at the very least. That's $16 per a dog for a day/overnight. Then another $20-30 for the Sunday since it's a "half day". Overall $120-130 as a minimum. This also depends on if you are boarding the dogs at your home of going to care for them at the owner's home.

A flat rate to be discussed during interview; this rate would not change with or without weekend care and I always prefer to care for my charge in their own home because it reduces stress on the pet, who is my chief concern. There is a flat rate in general, but I always under sell my competition with multiple pets.
