In Line Canine

    I got a puppy from a shelter about 4 months ago. She is super sweet super loving and knows how to sit stay and down. She is great with me and my boyfriend and great with other dogs. Unfortunately the one thing that she isn't great at is being near other people. She is so afraid of other people that she barks and barks. It was getting so bad we were nervous to take her out in public. So far I've done one private training session with In Line Canine and it was extremely helpful! We learned so much in one session! That night she sent us 4 weeks of homework. Each week is a stepping stone of how to help our pup to be less scared. We assumed it would be a pre made homework list but it's amazingly detailed and personal toward me and my dog! She also sent me a list of recommended toys for my dog to help her mentally and physically. I can't wait to make another session with her! I highly recommend In Line Canine!!!!!!

    We have used Hooves to Paws twice now when we had to go out of town for a week or more. We have been very happy both times. We have horses, goats, chickens, cats and dogs, and everyone was happy and healthy when we came home! She is very professional and the house was exactly as we left it.

    My experience with PartyCandle Cat Sitting was great! While I was away on vacation, I trusted PartCandle to watch my girl Trixie. Not only did she update me daily with pictures but she provided tons of love to Trixie.


    I can take care of independent clients to dependant clients. I also clean houses with my own supplies. I am a big animal lover


    I pet sit for people when they have to be away for a couple of days to a couple of weeks. I also mow lawns if people aren't able to do it themselves.


    I am a retired nurse, and I do house-sitting, dog and elderly care, as well as light housekeeping. I speak Spanish and English. I also do grooming for the elderly. I do no heavy lifting, grocery shopping, and cooking.


    I will clean your house or business the way you want me to. I also have house sitting and pet sitting experience. I am very honest and reliable. I am hard worker who takes a lot of pride in my work. I promise you won't be disappointed.

    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.
