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.

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!

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.

I met Chelsea through Thumbtack. She came to the house to meet our cats and chickens (and us), and I instantly like her and trusted her. She house sat for us for over a week and took care of our cats and 6 chickens. Its so nice to come home to animals that are not freaked out because you have been gone. Chelsea spent time with them and send me pictures and updates while I was gone. I highly recommend her and will for certain be hiring her again!

Yolanda genuinely cares! She is attentive, on time, caring, thoughtful, and she will take great care of your dog! She sends thoughtful notes and wonderful pictures of your dog on her walks while you're at work. Give her a call if you're looking for someone caring for your pet, you're lucky to have found her! She's a winner! and your doggie will love her.

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!

My husband and I hired Heather To help Us with our pup Summer. Heather was great at assisting us in overcoming summer's anxiety with her leash. Heather's caring and patient work with Summer successfully cured her resistance to being walked. Heather also worked with Summer on some basic commands like sitting and staying. Heather was wonderful with the work she did with Summer.

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.

Jenny is a fabulous pet sitter. She regularly walks our dog and routinely house sits for us when we go on trips. Our pets absolutely adore her and I have no worries about either my house or my pets when I have her house sitting for us. I highly recommend Jenni!

If I were to sum up Diane's personality in 3 words it would be kindness, reliability and integrity. Diane has been walking and house sitting for my 2 English Labs for 4 years now. They absolutely love her and she treats them as if they were her own. My husband and I travel a lot and always have peace of mind knowing Diane is at the house while we're away. Highly recommend!

Ciro and Hannah were both very courteous and definitely helped my friend and I take care of cleaning house. We were in need of someone ASAP, and they contacted us immediately and worked on getting help for us. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to hire a professional, or professionals, who are competent and skilled in what they do.

Candace was a house/cat sitter. She was very good. The house and cat were in wonderful shape when I returned. She understood the directions and was quite competent. She was quite expensive however.

More than just a walk, Dog Adventure Campers enjoy hiking on local, dog friendly trails and beaches. Groups are small in size (3-4 dogs) and we carefully match dogs with similar energy and ability levels.


I will stay at your house and take care of your plants while you travel and enjoying yourself worry free. I do pet sitting and lawn and plant care.


I'm 22, and I've been a maid for about a year. I have been taking care of animals for many years. I've loved animals my whole life. Taking care of them is honestly really enjoyable for me, so I would love to take care of your little ones!


I can house-sit and pet sit. I can walk your dogs. I have two dogs myself: Arya and Sansa, two very energetic Maltipoos. I am a single mother and very family oriented, and yes, pets are family.


I am an experienced San Jose based house and pet sitter. I am quiet, clean, friendly and good with pets.

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.
