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.

Cathy has been walking our almost 5 year old Rottie Niki for only a couple of weeks now. She recently stayed with NIki at our home while we both traveled! We've had a couple of different individuals from over the years sitting with Niki but to date NO ONE has bonded so quickly with the most hardheaded Rottweiler on this planet. Cathy has such a special bond with our girl and she loves her so very much. If there is a Dog Whisper in bay area it must be Cathy =) I don't know what we would do without Cathy! You are the absolute best. Niki loves you, she told us =)

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.

We recently had the pleasure of contracting with Your Best Friend Pet Services to care for our dog and cat while we visited family in Southern California. The owner, Holly Pardel, was professional and friendly throughout. She scheduled a time at our convenience to come to our house to meet with us and our pets, Roxie and Roscoe. She allowed us to explain exactly the care needed for each animal. Her warmth and attention to detail immediately put both myself and my wife at ease and allowed us to leave for our trip confident that our "kids" were in very good hands. Holly came to our house twice a day. Her visits included feeding, administering medications to our lab, Roxie, as well as taking her for walks around the neighborhood. She sent numerous photos and videos of Roxie at play which again served to reassure us that all was well at home. She also took in the mail for us, and even fed our goldfish, Sunkist! Upon our return home after nearly a week's absence, we found our pets healthy and happy. Her rates are extremely reasonable for the services provided (much less than if we had boarded them). I can recommend without reservation Holly Pardel for all of your dog walking and pet sitting needs. Thanks again Holly!

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!

Martha was very professional and thorough before she agreed to care for my pets. We met twice so that she and Denise could meet my entire family of 5 cats and 2 dogs. I'm sure that my pet family was happy to have someone there overnight while I was out of town. I got almost daily updates on my pets which were greatly appreciated. I feel confident that they received very good care in my absence and would highly recommend Wiggling Tails Pet Sitting Service

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.

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"

Melissa is the only person I trust with my pet sitting needs. She is professional yet caring and compassionate. She has been able to be flexible and works around my crazy travel schedule without a complaint. The best part is that my dog loves when Melissa is walking him or pet sitting.... it's like having his favorite aunt coming to visit him!

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!

I am an owner of an extremely protective 160 pound St. Bernard. She has extreme issues with social interactions with people if they are not family. I was so fortunate to find Coune's Canines. Stacy was extremely brave on that first visit. My dog lunges at her many times and barked non stop. She came back! And we tried her entering the house with my dog in her cage. This went on for many weeks but finally a breakthrough my dog allowed her to pet her through the cage. Now Stacy is easily her good friend! She can walk her around the property play inside with her and when I tell my dog she is coming to visit she is very excited. I never thought I would find anyone that would work with my temperamental girl. But I would highly recommend Coyne's Canines. They care about your pet and treat them like their own.

When I first contacted Margot, we did not actually have a dog yet. She followed up proactively and arranged to meet us and the dog right after we got him. We felt comfortable with her right away and she left with a key to our house and plans to start walking our dog the next day. It has taken a load off our minds to know she is giving him a mid day break each day. She gives us daily updates on how things went. I would definitely recommend her.

Jessa treated our house respectfully, left it cleaner than she received it, watered the plants, cared for the animals, and even left stretching and wellness tips for my cranky lower back. Would definitely ask her to sit again.

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.
