Charlene and Monica accommodated very short notice arrived early prepared to work. We had a move out cleaning with a plumbing issue, a handyman came out to repair the problem he took a valve our that had water pouring out Charlene took the time to video this situation and send it to me. On top of the house not being 100% empty the ladies managed to work around everything gather the last bit of belongings and find hidden treasures. The clean out was superb we could not have asked for better. They asked questions kept us informed did exactly what they said would be done and then some. I like the work and the team made me feel comfortable. I highly recommend them and will be using them myself on a regular basis.

They did a great job. There was confusion in the beginning because the quote said "one bedroom and one bathroom". As soon as I got the quote about a week before the appointment I confirmed with them that they understand it's a move out cleaning for a 4 bedroom and 3.5 bathroom home as well as full kitchen cleaning. they responded that they understood. When they arrived today (a week later) at the appointment, they were surprised that it was a 4 bedroom / 3.5 bedroom home and a move out cleaning. I showed them the email/message correspondence that I was very clear, even still they informed me that the price would be double to cover the full house. I was in a tight spot because I needed to be out today. My option was to just clean it myself as I usually do (but had other things going on that prevented that), or hire someone else on the spot. I agreed to the additional cost. To be fair, even the double amount was still a great price for the work. The worked from about 11:45 until about 5:45. The house was spotless. They got the windows, blinds, ceiling fans, oven, microwave, fridge as well as bathrooms, bedrooms, closets, etc. They did a fantastic job and it smelled great in the house. We actually ended up giving them about $40-50 extra on top. They are worth the money, just make sure what you want is clear ahead of time or have them come out and look first to give a quote. Great job. I'd use their services again.

DeeCee I can't thank you enough for helping me with my Eevee everything you thought me and showed me has been working like a charm. For anyone looking for an amazing trainer for your furry loved one DeeCee is by far one of the best I wish I had hired her from the beginning would have saved me time and money. She was so helpful with our puppy who was chewing our furniture and ruling our house. DeeCee helped me put a stop to that with just one visit and also helped me other issues we had. Both Eevee and I loved her so much we will definitely calling her again and again! Thank you so much!

I was very excited to hear Superstar Pet Sitting and Dog Walking had expanded to my area in the Valley. My sister lives in the South Bay and has raved about using them to walk her dogs daily and when they travel they use there house sitting services. I hired them to walk my dogs twice a day and couldn't be happier. My pets are everything to me and I feel very secure knowing when I am at work or traveling my 2 dogs and cat are well taken care of. Highly recommended.

Kelly was fantastic! We were nervous to leave our two cats with someone we did not know on our trip to Israel for two weeks. She came and fed, cleaned up and played with our "kids". Our house was well taken care of. She texted us each day letting us know how things were at home. I would recommend Kelly's pet care most highly.

Pawsability was above and beyond anything I could have imagined! I have a new rescue dog and I wanted to make sure she stayed in our home when we went away. We also wanted to start her off on some basic training so we hired Pawsability to come and take care of Sky. We had a meet and greet at my house and Theresa spent a good hour explaining her services and even giving us tips to help us w our new rescue. During the stay they took sky on the daily trips they do as part of the community daycare program and Sky got to be socialized and have "on the job" training with other dogs and new people. We were sent texts, videos and photos frequently with wonderful updates about sky's progress. My house was left beautifully and Theresa even washed the sheets and towels she used. She left a report and set up our final training session that was included in our board and train fee. Oh and the fee was extremely reasonable. When we returned home Our dog was happy, healthy and had learned the beginnings of obedience training. I couldn't be happier and highly recommend this service. We will definitely enroll Sky in their daycare as well.

I have two older Shih Tzus & a young Chihuahua. Each dog has his/her very own, distinct & very different personality. Every once and awhile, my work obligations prevent me from walking the dogs in the morning. It's not fair to the dogs & because of Shannon, I don't have to worry. Even when I call at the last minute, Shannan finds the time to come to my house & take my dogs for a nice, long walk. You have no idea how relieved I am to know that my pooches are in good, trusting hands. I have been extremely happy with the services offered by Doggie Bliss. My dogs also thank Doggie Bliss & Shannan very much.

Miki is dependable, loving and a wealth of knowledge. I have a dog w/ cancer and is diabetic, she's recommend and picked up a bag of nutrients to give to Molly girl while she's going through chemo. She goes above and beyond. Your pet will be in loving, great hands! Not only does my dog look forward to her daily walks w/ Miki, but she's tuckered out at the end of the day and sleeps better when on her days w/ Miki. Highly recommended!!

Jessie has stayed overnight at my house to care for my three dogs. She also has taken them for long walks and to the park to run when I was on vacation and my family was staying at the house. She always does an exceptional job and the dogs love her! I have a dog that is reactive to other dogs when she is walking on a leash and Jessie knows just how to handle her and calm her down. One of the things she does that I love is she not only sends me photos of the dogs but also makes little video movies so I can see them enjoying themselves in the park or in the yard.

AAAAAAAAA+++++++++++ Teri has been absolutely fantastic working with my 2 large dogs and my old cat. The animals are all excited to see her when they see her coming. She always texts me to let me know when she arrives and again when she is leaving. Frequently I get text photos of their day. Having Teri with my furballs allows me to concentrate at work. Wouldn't want anyone else at my house.

We used Randi to watch our dog at our house for a two week out of the country vacation. She was great! Texted us when anything came up, kept us apprised of anything going on with our dog, and also took great care of our house. When we returned from our vacation, our house was clean and neat and just the way we had left it. She followed our instructions to a "T in terms of both of our dog and our house. We had trouble getting home and had to return a day later, and she was flexible enough to be willing to stay with our dog one day more. I would highly recommend Randi for anyone looking for a pet sitter and in fact we will be using her again soon. Thank you.

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.

We were so worried about leaving our very sensitive dog and independent cat when we needed to be out of town for a week. It was truly a blessing to find Linda (Roo's Pet Sitting Service). She put our dog Bella at ease immediately, and even came to see us again a day beforehand to make our girl more comfortable with her presence before we left. She was able to charm our cat with no problem as well. Linda stayed overnight with our babies, provided their meals and ensured Bella had good long walks. Throughout our trip she texted us daily to let us know how our babies were doing. On top of that she took care of plants and mail at no extra charge. I would recommend Linda to anyone who wants good, loving and affordable care for their pets.

Jo has walked my 3 dogs this week while I am recovering from back surgery, and she will be back next week as well and will be house sitting for us next month. It's a huge relief to have found Jo. Jo came over prior to my surgery and met my menagerie and she had them happy from the first hello!

Tara far surpasses any of our previous petsitters. So much so, that I can not only entrust our dogs, cats and birds to her excellent care but no longer have to send my horse to a stable. All the animals love her. With Tara caring for all my animals, I can now truly take vacations without the constant worry about what is going on at home, are my animals okay. We couldn't ask for a better petsitter.

Trent is nothing short of an ideal partner in our pet care. We instantly felt comfortable with him upon first meeting and it is beyond clear that our puppy is benefitting from his care. He takes great care of the dog, our house and our peace of mind. Trent keeps us up to date on when he's with our pup and when he leaves. He's extremely flexible and reliable. We cannot recommend Trent highly enough for your pet needs!!

We have a 3 1/2 year old cat that is new (2 weeks) to our family. The vet suggested that the cat stay home and not be boarded while we are on a short trip. George (Wiskers, Tails and Mail) was very understanding of our situation. He took excellent care of our cat and her new environment (litter box, feeding area, etc.). George also kept me informed on her activities while we were away. Utilizing the services of Wiskers, Tails and Mail was a huge relief during our time away. I highly recommend George and his company as they really provide more then pet sitting. They also supply peace of mind for the owner. P.S. I ran out of time to have the mail stopped and at the last minute George stepped into collect the mail on a daily basis. What a life saver! George and Lorna, thanks for everything!

Patricia stayed at our house for three weeks to care for our two dogs, Lola and Banjo. Since this was Patricia's first time with our dogs, she suggested coming over at least twice before our trip to get acquainted with our dogs. I thought that really showed her attentiveness and concern about our dogs. It also gave me an opportunity to observe how she acted with the dogs. Well, she was fantastic. Patricia is really sensitive to the dogs' temperaments and preferences. She gives them time to get comfortable with them. When we returned from our trip, it was the first time that the dogs weren't insanely excited to see us. Happy, but not overexcited. I attribute that to the fact that they were comfortable, well taken care of and got lots of attention from Patricia. Patricia followed all of our instructions to the letter. She was at our house all of the time. She took care of all of the dogs' medicine needs exactly as asked. You could not find a more responsive house/pet sitter than Patricia.

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.
