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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

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!

Ellen has been so great! My pets liked her immediately and didn't even bark at her. She takes my dog to the park for walks and visits with my cats. She has never missed a visit and she goes above and beyond her duties. If there is an accident, she handles it. She feeds everyone and takes care of the litter and even leaves me a log of what she has done for the day. She took out my trash and brought in my mail while I was gone and she is very trustworthy. I hope to have a long pet sitting relationship with her and our family :)

About

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

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.
