Enter the total pet sitting cost ($) and the number of hours of pet sitting into the Pet Sitting Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Pet Sitting Rate. 

Pet Sitting Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Pet Sitting Rate.

PSR = PSC / T

  • Where PSR is the Pet Sitting Rate ($/hr)
  • PSC is the total pet sitting cost ($) 
  • T is the number of hours of pet sitting 

How to Calculate Pet Sitting Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Pet Sitting Rate.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total pet sitting cost ($). 
    • The total pet sitting cost ($) is given as: 300.
  2. Next, determine the number of hours of pet sitting. 
    • The number of hours of pet sitting is provided as: 8.
  3. Finally, calculate the Pet Sitting Rate using the equation above: 

PSR = PSC / T

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

PSR = 300 / 8 = 37.5 ($/hr)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total pet sitting cost ($) = 600

number of hours of pet sitting = 10
