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!!

I’m so glad I have found Trina to be my pet sitter. She is very reliable, trustworthy, and professional. I am a nurse and work 12 hour shifts 3 days a week so Trina comes to my house to take my little chihuahua potty, feed her, and keep her company. I know my little fur baby is in good hands while I am away and best of all, I know that I can trust Trina in my home. Not to mention her rates are amazing, especially when I leave on vacation! I always book her to spend the night at my house to pet sit and house sit! So awesome! I would recommend Trina to anyone. You won’t be disappointed!

Mandy looked after our 2 cats while we went to visit family for 5 days and she was AWESOME! First of all she was very punctual, and super easy to communicate with which made it easy to make the last minute arragements. Second, yet most important, she was GREAT with the cats! One of our cats is very attached and would get really worried and depressed when we would leave, and the other one is very shy and usually hides around strangers, but not this time! They were both happy as can be!! She later described a few things about the cats that she wouldn't have known unless she was spending quality time with them and that I know our cats wouldn't do unless they were comfortable and trusting of her. Mandy just has a very easy going, calming and kind personality that really put both the cats and myself at ease. She also managed to send us regular updates, even though it was nearly impossible to reach us where we were. She sent some photos as well, and I could just tell the cats were 100% content. It was so great not having to worry! We will definitely be calling her again since now I can actually look forward to our next trips rather than dreading having to leave my favorite fuzz balls with someone. Oh, and on top of all that she kept the house super tidy and clean(I think even better than when we left). So without a doubt, I would recommend Mandy to anyone and everyone who is looking for a pet sitter they can trust. Thanks again Mandy!!!

Francis responded within 10 minutes of my request, we set a date and time online via chat, and then she arrived right on time. She spent 5 hours at my house (I asked for a deep clean) and it looks great. Shower doors are like new! I definitely recommend Brilliant Clean!

Angie is heaven sent. My two dogs greet her with so much love & joy, it makes my heart sing! She has been so helpful with dogsitting at my place and even more extraordinarily with helping me get started with my very own dog walking service in Los Angeles. I learned so much from her example. Angie is the kind of person who has driven to Mexico from California to get much needed affordable veterinary care for a cat who turned up on her doorstep. She helped a traumatized pitbull recover in her home when he crossed her path and soon after she adopted him. She also helped me with an insurance claim when I worked with a rescue dog who got into an incident. Angie is a resourceful, reliable, trustworthy person and you can add all the virtues on her name and those will ring true.

Sam has always done a great job pet sitting my two dogs, as well as providing daily walks and playtime for them. He's a true animal lover and now he is the only one I trust him with "my babies" for their daily care and overnight care when needed.

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.
