Lori came to our Babe we are home to care for our two boys. She is a wonderful cat caregiver. I recommend her for pet sitting any time. She will send pictures and photos of your pets every day. That is so thoughtful of her.

Nervous at first - but feeling thankful to know my kids are getting care during some very long work days!! Very profession and detailed organization. 🐾❤️🙏🌟

No one could ask for a better person to watch their home and dog while on vacation. Juliet is just awesome. Our dog was very comfortable with her and had a wonderful time while we were gone. We had used different house/dog sitters the previous two years and Juliet was a vast improvement over both of them. We came home to a happy dog plus a house that actually had a few decorating improvements added to it. Juliet will now be our house/dog sitter every time we travel. A perfect 10!!!

Heather stayed at our house for a week to watch our two dogs and the fish. She did everything that I asked of her and more. I returned to two dogs who were happy and well taken care of. When I was away, the pest control people came to take care of our ant problem and asked that we water granules that they left in our front bushes. Heather took care of that for us without even being asked to do so. Heather went above and beyond to do a great job. I would definitely recommend her.

What can I say about Annie. My four boxer girls are absolutely in love with her. At the mere mention of Annie's name they are at the garage waiting for her arrival every morning. Whether my boxer girls are being walked or Annie is sitting with them I know that they are safe and secure. I would recommend Annie in a heartbeat to anyone. Annie he is not just a dog walker or a sitter she is much more. The care, compassion and love that she has for my boxer girls is amazing. My boxer girls deserve the best and Annie is the best!!

Mandy looked after our 2 cats while we went to visit family for 5 days and she was AWESOME! First of all she was very punctual, and super easy to communicate with which made it easy to make the last minute arragements. Second, yet most important, she was GREAT with the cats! One of our cats is very attached and would get really worried and depressed when we would leave, and the other one is very shy and usually hides around strangers, but not this time! They were both happy as can be!! She later described a few things about the cats that she wouldn't have known unless she was spending quality time with them and that I know our cats wouldn't do unless they were comfortable and trusting of her. Mandy just has a very easy going, calming and kind personality that really put both the cats and myself at ease. She also managed to send us regular updates, even though it was nearly impossible to reach us where we were. She sent some photos as well, and I could just tell the cats were 100% content. It was so great not having to worry! We will definitely be calling her again since now I can actually look forward to our next trips rather than dreading having to leave my favorite fuzz balls with someone. Oh, and on top of all that she kept the house super tidy and clean(I think even better than when we left). So without a doubt, I would recommend Mandy to anyone and everyone who is looking for a pet sitter they can trust. Thanks again Mandy!!!

This is a pre-sitting review, which I will update after our trip - I just wanted to say that her responsiveness, and professionalism where top rate and I have no worries about leaving my kit-kat in her excellent care. She asked all the right questions and understood my requests perfectly, even adjusting the price to match my expectations. I am chuffed.

Francis responded within 10 minutes of my request, we set a date and time online via chat, and then she arrived right on time. She spent 5 hours at my house (I asked for a deep clean) and it looks great. Shower doors are like new! I definitely recommend Brilliant Clean!

I’m so glad I have found Trina to be my pet sitter. She is very reliable, trustworthy, and professional. I am a nurse and work 12 hour shifts 3 days a week so Trina comes to my house to take my little chihuahua potty, feed her, and keep her company. I know my little fur baby is in good hands while I am away and best of all, I know that I can trust Trina in my home. Not to mention her rates are amazing, especially when I leave on vacation! I always book her to spend the night at my house to pet sit and house sit! So awesome! I would recommend Trina to anyone. You won’t be disappointed!

“ Amy has been dog sitting and housesitting for us almost two years, and she does a wonderful job. Our dog Bristol, 15 years old, requires special care. He is a mixed breed with a very shaggy coat that needs a lot of brushing, and he can’t see or hear very well. Amy gives him the special attention and slow walks he needs. Our other dog, Lola, is a Boston Terrier, full of energy but with dietary restrictions. She loves to play tug of war with Amy. Both of them are always very happy to see Amy. The texts and photos of our dogs while we are away help us keep in touch. And when we return from our trips, the house seems cleaner than when we left! No one will be disappointed with Amy’s professional services. — Cheryl N

I have known Valerie at Best Friends Pet and House Sitting Service in Fallbrook since 2005. I trust her implicitly with my pets and home. She does a wonderful job with my pets. She puts the pets welfare as a number one priority always. I can travel away from home and know everything is in good hands. I highly recommend Valerie. She is extremely reliable and conscientious..

Dorota was the absolute best sitter for my cats. Both have special needs. They both instantly took a liking to her gentle spirit and Dorota did great work taking care of them while I was away, and she took care of me by sending me pictures of the girls. I recommend her to everyone.

About

Hi, my name is Lindsay Honea. I graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University this last December 2013 with honors and a bachelor's in liberal studies (teaching arts) and decided to get into the business field! I am currently enrolled in Point Loma's graduate MBA (Masters in Business Administration) program. I am also a member and leader of the track team at PLNU and will move into a coaching position next year. I love house and pet sitting and a chance to get out of my little apartment. It reminds me more of being home when I am in a place that has been loved and cared for by a family. I also love animals, and they only add to this feeling of being home as I am from a ranch/farm in Arizona and was surrounded by them growing up. It offers me a mini vacation as well as a break from my apartment. I live and work in San Diego, so I am available when needed. I have also been a trusted nanny/babysitter for many families over the years and am wanting to transition to more house/pet sitting. I think that it says a lot that families have trusted me with their little ones! I am also very active and greatly enjoy taking dogs for runs/walks if asked to and have a lot of experience with many different kinds of animals. In general, I perform the jobs that are needed in house/pet sitting. I have great problem-solving skills, and I am very responsible and organized and will leave your place as neat if not more than it was when you left it with me. I can definitely be trusted to take care or your home and pets!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is house sitting?

A house sitter watches your house while you are away for work or vacation, or if you have to be away for an extended period. House sitters can also provide pet-sitting services, staying in your home and caring for your pet while you are away. The house sitter can say overnight in your home while you’re gone, or stop by once a day to ensure everything is in order if your pet doesn’t need overnight supervision. Reptiles and most cats are just fine with daily visits and feeding.

House sitting provides major advantages to the homeowner. A regular presence in your house deters break-ins and theft. Home safety issues such as water leaks get noticed and dealt with right away, so you don’t come home to big problems. A house sitter can bring in your mail daily, care for your houseplants, and provide home safety and peace of mind.

How do I find a reliable house sitter?

House sitting can help keep your home safe and well cared for so you can be worry-free while you’re away for work or play. There are several steps you can take to make sure you hire a trustworthy house sitter and do your part to be a responsible host. One of the best ways to ensure a safe home is to hire a professional house sitter. Here are some key points to look for when hiring a house sitter:

  • Reviews and referrals: When searching for a house sitter, always read reviews. Previous experiences will indicate how the house sitter will care for your home while you’re away.
  • Contract: Sign a clearly written contract outlining services to be provided (e.g., mail in each day by 5 p.m.), the daily rate you are paying, and how long the services will be provided. You can also include any agreed-upon house rules in the written contract.
  • Your part: Leave important phone numbers (vet, emergency contact, etc.) and information on where to find emergency items like the circuit breaker and the fire extinguisher, and have a credit card on file with the veterinarian in case of emergencies if the house sitter is watching your pets.
