Tiffany did a great job taking care of my cat Rufio. She sent videos and photos of him during her visits and took in all of our mail/packages. Tiffany clearly loves animals and her knowledge of animals put us as it ease with her in charge. I would not hesitate in hiring her for future cat sitting needs.

Shana was great! Texted every day to let us know how walks went. She had to deal with construction going on at the house and we were very grateful to have her taking the dogs out each day.

Krystal took excellent care of our cats while we were away. She is professional, experienced, and really loves animals. She took time to send an update every day and send a picture (if the cats came out of hiding)! I highly recommend Krystal for cat-sitting.

Our dog was skunked and I was desperately looking for someone to come to our house to wash her. I was so happy to have our groomer that we have gone to for 3 generations of dogs answer my add! She is wonderful and does beautiful dog cuts. She answered very quickly and offered to pick up the dog, take her to the dog park so she was calm enough to be groomed (she's a pup still) and take her to the shop. All for a very reasonable price. So happy!

Peggy did a cat sit while we were out of town. She made sure to clarify all instructions ahead of time, made good notes while we were here, and provided good followup. We would recommend Peggy!

We got so lucky finding Jody! Jody did an amazing job taking care of our kitty and house for 5 days while we were out of state. She checked in daily per request, and sent me photos of my cat throughout our absence. I did not have to worry about my cat being lonely or getting anxious because Jody slept over and kept my cat at ease by sticking to our usual schedule and giving him lots of love. When we came home our cat was not frazzled or anxious, which was our previous experience when we'd leave for long periods of time. We joke that our cat misses Jody and look forward to hiring her again when we plan our next trip!

Sue has been working with me and my two min pins, Coco and Tootsie on behavior modification issues. I was at the point of contacting the breeder to give one of them back - basically at the end of my rope. I'd worked with other dog. trainers, but Sue explained and showed how to manage and modify behavior that was easy to comprehend and made sense. I am not exaggerating when I say she has literally changed my life and helped me rethink how to interact with my girls. I am very grateful.

I have two cats who LOVE when Maria comes to visit when we go out of town. Maria calls them my "babies", and every day I'm out of town, she sends me a warm, friendly text message with a photo of them eating or looking up at her. It helps me feel connected to them! Maria has been our #1 pet sitter for a few years. She's always available every time I need to book her, even during the holidays. I make sure to give her as much notice as possible so she can plan. We arrange everything through easy text messages and I leave a check for her on the kitchen counter before I go. She keeps a key to my house and I totally trust her there. I highly recommend Maria!

Adam was amazing with our dog Ella, both when he house sat for us and when he walks her from time to time. When Adam comes to the door Ella immediately is over the moon excited and knows exactly where to go and sit after she is done saying hello.... yes you got it, next to his car so she can go for a ride and a hike. Adam also surprised me when I got home by having the sheets from the bed he slept in while he was house sitting all washed, folded and sitting on the end of the bed. What a delight not to need to clean up after a house sitter. I give Adam "4 Paws Up"

We are so lucky to have found Vanessa, she is absolutely wonderful and so great with all our animals (Guinea pigs, tortoise, chickens and three labradors) she also waters all my plants out back and is just very caring and qualified. I feel so happy to know she is staying at our home while we have to travel to love and care for all our animals.

I always felt at ease knowing that Anne was caring for my lil Stella! She has a very special bond with the pets she looks after and always gave Stella lots of love. Stella considered it her home away from home and was always excited to go to Anne's house! When I went on vacation I got regular updates and knew she was in good hands. I also felt so much better knowing Stella was being looked after and having other playmates around as opposed to leaving her alone at home for 9plus hours while I was at work. I highly recommend Anne's services!

Wonderful job. Took care of the cat and was very responsive. Even did me a favor and put some food away in the freezer so it wouldn't spoil.

      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.
