  1. I had my own pet sitting business in the So. Cal area for years, and the going rate here for overnights ranges between $65-$75 per night for one pet. You should check the rates of other sitters in that area to see what they are charging and charge similarly. -------------- Thank for this answer from other board.
  2. I live in the San Francisco Bay area (Palo Alto area). One of my clients has asked if I would like to take care of her beautiful home and her dog for 2 &1/2 days. Involves light gardening, walking dog 3X per day and staying overnight. How much is appropriate to charge?
