We found Jennifer's Business on Nextdoor last year. She is professional, unbelievably organized, professional, and a savy businesswoman. We've hired sitters before, but Jennifer and her team make pet sitting a professional business. They installed a camera that dispensed treats so we could throw our dogs treats on our trip to Alaska! I won't hire anyone but Jen and her employees locally.. Turly the best! Jon & Bo-Palm Springs, CA

I had Marjalena stay at my house for 4 nights to take care of my dog. She was very dependable, trustworthy, and loving toward my dog. My dog hated to see her go! I would highly recommend her. You won't be disappointed.

    Mariah did a really good job cleaning my house. I made an appointment on a Sunday, not only did she show up on time but she did a superb job cleaning the kitchen, the living room and the bedrooms. Mariah not only cleaned the floors, she cleaned the walls, the cabinets and all the surfaces in every room.

    We were planning a big "0" birthday party for my husband at our new house in Palm Springs, and were looking for help. Hosting 60 people at our house is not something we were used to. Bianca helped by reserving the tables and chairs, planning the menu, obtaining some help for serving and bartending, as well as making sure there was plenty of delicious for for all. Everything tasted wonderful, from the specialty appetizers I asked for, to the wonderful birthday cake. I couldn't have been more pleased with the compliments I received from our guests, to the fun my husband had, and the relaxing and socializing I could enjoy! Thank you Bianca. We'll call you for our next event. Dave

    Juliann came to my home to clean for the first time. I was very very pleased with the detailed work she was able to accomplish. Juliann will be back to complete the work she started and she will continue to clean my home on a regular basis. I would highly recommend Juliann for her cleaning services!

      Hi:-) I can provide Dream Cleaning Services to you and your family! I have senior discounts and free quotes! I can do deep cleaning or basic cleaning; whatever your family or you need to get your house sparkling clean, give me a call or email!


      Worked with Canine Support Teams for two years. Canine Support Team raises and trains dogs to be a service dog and helpful companion for people with multiple types of disabilities.


      I have an extensive experience in house-sitting as well as good rapport with most cats and dogs. I can take care of plants as well.


      I am an energetic and loving pet care provider. I love all dogs, and I also do housecleaning services. I have 2 years of experience in cleaning bathrooms at a Seattle based university. I'd love to make your home a happier, cleaner place for you to live in or take your dog for a walk when your busy schedule doesn't allow you to.


      I am a licensed California Realtor (so I have been screened, fingerprinted and background checked by the State of California), currently living in Palm Desert. Real Estate is very slow in the summer because it is so hot. I would like to be able to escape the heat myself by taking excellent care of your home and, if applicable, pets. I had a dog, my constant companion, for 15 1/2 years and pretty much every dog that meets me loves me. And vice versa. I had a cat for 16 years as well. He was a feral cat that lived on the nearby railroad tracks and he adopted me and we lived a long life together. I'm clean and quiet and very professional. I currently have no spouse or children or pets of my own. I just want to escape the desert in the summer.


      I have had dogs for over 60 years, and right now I am without one, so the thought of being in a dog's life now in a walking and sitting capacity is very exciting to me. I want to be helpful in life, and I think that caring for dogs is very important for both of us. I will need transportation at this time if you are willing to give me a try. Sincerely, Kathy


      My Husband and I make sure that we do our job from top to bottom and all around. We don't miss a heartbeat, a mess will will be cleaned up in minutes, and your pet's will be happy. Everyone and everything is and will be a happy family. That's our goal for everything and everyone's family happy.

I am a Christian and a nonsmoker.


      I am willing to do many tasks. I'm very hardworking and will work as best as possible on a given task. I am trying to work for a better life for my family, and any work will help. Thank you.

      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.
