Joyce was very responsive and dependable. It's obvious she's knowledgeable and experienced with cats, and cares about their happiness and well being. She sent a photo and update while I was away, which always provides great peace of mind for any pet owner. I highly recommend her services and will work with her again!

Joyce was amazing with my two cats. She even sent us pictures of them while we were away. Joyce fed our cats the prescribed amounts, cleaned the litter box, and played with them. We came home to very happy kitties and plan to use Joyce for all of our future cat sitting needs!

Joyce was very thorough and considerate. She has a good understanding of pet care and was very responsive while we were traveling. Our cat seemed happy when we returned, which isn't always the case when we've used other sitters in the past. Thanks Joyce!

Tony & Cameron groomed our 2yr Female English Cream Golden Retriever, and our Male 7 yr. 105lb American Rottweiler and I couldn't believe how awesome they were with them. Especially our rotti! The way they handle our dogs I was sold! Our rotti has never got any grooming done in his life and here comes Cameron & Tony who stole his heart. They listen, read and are very detailed in the body language of the dogs. They were very social and playful to where our English golden retriever is a very submissive dog and she started warming up to them. This is a TOTALLY different kind of mobile service which I was very pleased with. They really made in home mobile experience very comfortable, inviting, loving & caring for our dogs. Tony is very knowledgeable on pets! Any kind of pet you have. I learned a lot and had a very wonderful expeience! Thank you and if I must say get some rain boots for Cameron! Thank you Cameron!

Marina did a wonderful job watching our dogs while we were on vacation. Leading up to our trip, she reassured us that she would send lots of pictures and videos, and did she deliver! When we returned, the dogs were happy and well cared for. I would highly recommend Marina for pet sitting. She understands that your pets are family members too, and she treats them like they were her own family.

Marina is amazing! I've hired her twice for cat sitting and she always sends me photos of my cat without fail :) I have peace of mind whenever I leave my cat with her. She even goes above and beyond with her services; she cleans my apartment, she waters my plants and even bought a new bowl and food mat for my cat.

Cathy is very prompt, friendly and a trust worthy pet sitter. She was very responsive from the beginning when I inquired about her service to the end when I asked her to return my key. She sent me pics of my cats every day she visited them. She managed our finicky security system well. The security system logs the time of entry/exit so there's proof she did spend a whole hour with my kitty at each visit. She was graciously flexible with her start date. My departure date was depending on the weather driving up to Lake Tahoe, and she was OK with me deciding on the day of departure as long as I let her know. And she really went above and beyond her duties. The week we were gone, it rained very heavily and Coyote Creek near by our house started flooding. When I heard from my neighbors that the city was notifying residents to evacuate, I called Cathy and asked her to help me with the cats, only if she were comfortable about it. She did not hesitate to go to my house to move my cats' food, water and litter box upstairs, even when the street started flooding. You can really trust her for taking good care of your pets and I recommend her without any hesitation what so ever.

I have known Cathy Rice for many years and have had her dog sit for my two Golden Retrievers. Cathy has a gentle manner with our dogs, and gives them the attention they need while I am away. My dogs have been well cared for in my absence. Cathy has a friendly personality and is very flexible with her schedule. I would highly recommend her for your pet sitting needs.

I can't say enough good things about Cathy! She is very reliable, flexible, good about communicating and best of all, takes great care of her pet pals. She texts pictures and messages every time she walks my dog, so I always know when he's had his visit. I'm very happy with the great service she provides.

Paul provided excellent care for my cat. We left feeling confident he was in good hands and returned pleased to discover we had made the right choice for our pet. While our cat was pleased to have us home, it was very clear that he had been given a great deal of care in our absence. I have no doubt that we will hire Paul again for cat-sitting in the near future.

Shelley is amazing! We put Coco in Pet Camp before and he was not happy since he was stuffed up in a cubby all day (he’s a little bit on the big side) for more than twice the price than Shelley. We decided to use Thumbtack for the first time and I am definitely satisfied. Shelley took care of Coco for 7 Days while we were in Hawaii and kept us up to date everyday with pictures. Trust me when you’re away from your beloved pet, getting daily pictures and seeing he is okay really makes your day when you’re on the trip. Coco clearly loved her too. She also went out of her way to do the small things like wash his dishes, clear out the trash, and even vacuumed for us. We were extremely comfortable knowing Coco was in good hands. I highly recommend Shelley for any of your petsitting needs and will definitely be using her again!

I hired Shelley for cat sitting. It was on short notice, but she was very quick to respond and meet up to go over instructions. I was gone for almost a week, but Shelley was great with providing video and picture updates. When we got back home, was just as we left it and my cat barely even noticed we left :) Overall, my experience was great. I can't recommend Shelley enough, she was fantastic!

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

Crystal is the best! She is dependable. My dog loves her and Crystal understand animals. As an owner, I found Crystal to be flexible and communicates well, which is important when planning and changing drop off/pick up times. She is conveniently located near the airport too. We've used her for mid-day walks and over-night stays. Our neighbors started using Crystal's walking service after running into Crystal and our dog. The neighbors claim their dog is happier to see Crystal then he is to see them! You know dogs and cats don't hide their emotions! Thanks Crystal for your great service and smile. You ARE a gem!

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!

Jody is a gem! She sent pictures and timely updates and had a warm and responsible demeanor- definitely the type of person I'm looking for to take care of my fur babes. Even my shy cat took a liking to her. She was able to squeeze me into her schedule on short notice during the holidays which was a huge relief. Would definitely use Jody again.

Jody was the best cat sitter I could ever have asked for! She came twice a day to feed my kitten and spent a lot of time playing with her everyday. Her price was the best for the quality of care she provided. I highly recommend her to everyone

Erika is an EXCELLENT pet sitter!! She is extremely responsive, responsible, thoughtful and caring. Erika impressed us immediately at our first meeting- she was thorough in learning about what our cats' wants and needs, personalities and proclivities. For each visit, Erika sends us short videos of our cats; which gives us peace of mind. She is very quick to respond to our requests, even if its short notice. Erika even arranged for a reliable, vetted sub when she was out of town, and we needed cat sitting. We feel very fortunate to have found Erika to take care of our beloved kitties. We highly recommend her!!!

I tried Erika for the first time because my regular pet sitter was out of town. She did a fantastic job, including giving oral meds to a senior cat, and when I came home none of the cats were mad at me (as usually happens when I go away). I take that to mean that they didn't feel at all neglected while we were away. I use Erika exclusively now.

I highly recommend Erika as a pet sitter. Erika is flexible, professional, and friendly. Our cat, Bubby, loves her. Erika always sends us videos of Bubby while we're away so we get to see that Bubby is happy and healthy in our absence!

I hired Sharon for a 90 minute deep tissue massage. What I got was that, and so much more. Sharon is very experienced. She gives so very much of her collective years of expertise to the experience. I felt like I had a partner. In our first session she was exploring what I can achieve with her services in the long run. I will be going back to see how I can receive long term relief from specific issues. I'm tired of living in a state of tension in my body where pain is a constant. Going to someone like Sharon will begin a solid, integrative process toward my goal.

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!

Christina was great in taking care of my cat, Ringo, over the holidays. She first came over and met us. He's quite a needy cat, and she confirmed she'd be able to give him the attention he needs, and was very professional, bringing over paperwork, proof of petsitting insurance, etc. Her professionalism and friendliness left me at ease leaving Ringo in her hands. The reason I was a bit nervous was because I've historically boarded him for longer trips, even though he always pukes on the way over to drop him off, and he always ends up looking like he didn't eat and he pulls his hair out, so I thought it was worth trying petsitting so he could stay in his house and not have to experience that stress. Christina sent photos or videos every day, as well as a brief e-mail summarizing how Ringo did. I appreciated the service she provided and Ringo did not seem as stressed when I got home. Christina offers a valuable service, and I'll continue to use her in the future for my petsitting needs.

Just came back from our vacation home in Idaho. I had never used Thumbtack before - however the experience was wonderful. We hired Elizabeth Vargas of Liz TLC house and pet sitting. She did an outstanding job. I especially appreciated the photos and messages from her during our trip so we did not worry. Not only did she take care of three cats and four chickens she also watered our garden! Not easy with as hot as it was while we were gone. Would strongly recommend her. Michele Ruberto

Liz watched our house, dog, teenage son and preteen daughter while we were on vacation. She dealt admirably with all personalities involved (no easy task) and kept the household running smoothly. She is extremely trustworthy and always endeavors to do her best. She even alerted us to the fact that bats had taken up residence when we misinterpreted the squeaks and had been setting traps for a mouse.

Taylor has been a great person to hire for our dog. We could not be happier. Our 3 yrs old Doberman liked her from the moment she showed up, and now he feels lucky and happy when Taylor comes in to take him for a walk. If not for Taylor, he would be sitting all day long waiting for the first of us coming from work. Taylor is our Life Savior. So glad to find her here on this site. Thank you, Taylor!

Gail has been walking our dog Val for about 6-7 months now and she is fantastic! I can't say enough about Gail's attentiveness, reliability, and great communication. We have had previous dog walkers an Gail is by far the best. She frequently sends pictures or videos of the day's walk, which is really thoughtful. She is also very flexible and works with us and our schedule. We originally had Gail come a few days a week, but we are so happy she now comes Monday through Friday. It's clear she really cares about the dogs she works with and wants to make sure they're happy. If you're looking for a reliable, trustworthy, and thoughtful dog walker, contact Gail!

I rarely feel compelled to write reviews but Uncle Joe's Pet Care deserves to be noted as providing excellent service and support. Joe recently cared for our two cats while we were on vacation, and we had a great experience! He was very thorough in getting all the care details during the initial meet and greet, and instantly bonded with our furry buddies. They have a few special needs, like for example feeding always needs to be supervised because otherwise the alpha cat would eat both portions. We felt very comfortable leaving our two sweeties in Joe's care and we were not disappointed. As we could see and hear from Joe's frequent updates, they were happy and relaxed during our absence. It's also comforting to know that Uncle Joe's is insured and bonded. Joe is not only very professional, and knows a ton about pet care (ask him about nutrition!), he is also someone who truly loves cats. I'm so happy we found him, and I highly recommend Uncle Joe's Pet Care. I would give them 10 stars if I could!

I am so happy to have found Uncle Joe. In fact he is currently looking after my cats while I am away! I am usually very uncomfortable having anyone in my house, especially when I'm gone, but I feel none of that with Joe. He sends me a photo and quick update each time he visits which really sets my mind at ease. He also offers to bring in mail, water plants, and other extras which is really nice. His prices are very reasonable and he even offers a price break if you buy a "package" of visits, which is great for frequent travelers or a long trip. He was incredibly thorough during our first meeting, getting a ton of info and background. He is a natural, a true animal lover, and really knows his stuff--he's made for this line of work. I have never been so happy with another cat sitter and I have used quite a few. Do yourself a favor, give Uncle Joe's Pet Care a try!

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"
