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.

DeeCee I can't thank you enough for helping me with my Eevee everything you thought me and showed me has been working like a charm. For anyone looking for an amazing trainer for your furry loved one DeeCee is by far one of the best I wish I had hired her from the beginning would have saved me time and money. She was so helpful with our puppy who was chewing our furniture and ruling our house. DeeCee helped me put a stop to that with just one visit and also helped me other issues we had. Both Eevee and I loved her so much we will definitely calling her again and again! Thank you so much!

I was very excited to hear Superstar Pet Sitting and Dog Walking had expanded to my area in the Valley. My sister lives in the South Bay and has raved about using them to walk her dogs daily and when they travel they use there house sitting services. I hired them to walk my dogs twice a day and couldn't be happier. My pets are everything to me and I feel very secure knowing when I am at work or traveling my 2 dogs and cat are well taken care of. Highly recommended.

Nothing but positive things to say. Contacted Cynthia and Darren less than a week prior to my week-long vacation seeing if they could sit our cat and bunny. They said it was no problem, came to our house to meet our pets the night I called. While we were gone, they left texts on arrival and departure each night, sent pics and videos. We felt great knowing our pets were in such good hands while we were gone. Cynthia and Darren's genuine love for animals shines through in their attitude and enthusiasm for the job. Highly recommend!

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.

Pawsability was above and beyond anything I could have imagined! I have a new rescue dog and I wanted to make sure she stayed in our home when we went away. We also wanted to start her off on some basic training so we hired Pawsability to come and take care of Sky. We had a meet and greet at my house and Theresa spent a good hour explaining her services and even giving us tips to help us w our new rescue. During the stay they took sky on the daily trips they do as part of the community daycare program and Sky got to be socialized and have "on the job" training with other dogs and new people. We were sent texts, videos and photos frequently with wonderful updates about sky's progress. My house was left beautifully and Theresa even washed the sheets and towels she used. She left a report and set up our final training session that was included in our board and train fee. Oh and the fee was extremely reasonable. When we returned home Our dog was happy, healthy and had learned the beginnings of obedience training. I couldn't be happier and highly recommend this service. We will definitely enroll Sky in their daycare as well.

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!!

We started with Cortney a couple weeks ago & mu Pups love her! She's been very professional & responsive and we look forward to working with her. On a side note, I have 2 very active Australian Cattle Dogs & today I just happened to be home when she arrived, but upstairs. There was the typical noise at the front door, but only for a quick moment & by the time I got downstairs I thought they had already left on their walk because it was so quiet! Both the dogs were sitting quietly in their "place" command as she prepared their leashes. I've never seen them respond that quickly to anyone but me! Yay! Thanks Cortney!

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.

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!!

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.

Jo has walked my 3 dogs this week while I am recovering from back surgery, and she will be back next week as well and will be house sitting for us next month. It's a huge relief to have found Jo. Jo came over prior to my surgery and met my menagerie and she had them happy from the first hello!

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!

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!

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!!

Have not yet had the experience of working with Tracy's Dog Sitting. But just through communicating with her on line she seems like someone I would feel comfortable with leaving my beloved animal in her care.

We hired Janice to pet sit our dog and cat while staying in our home for a period of three weeks while we were on vacation. We had never hired a pet/house sitter before, so I was very nervous about finding the right person. Janice was completely understanding and patiently answered questions and provided requested documents to address any concerns. During our initial meeting, Janice asked excellent questions regarding our pets' routines, meals, personalities and health which demonstrated care and experience related towards the care of pets. She also asked very good questions pertaining to staying in our house as part of her house sitting responsibilities. I felt very at ease meeting Janice and hired her without reservation. While we were away, Janice regularly texted us with updates and photos of our "furry family" which was very comforting to us. When she was faced with a couple of minor, unexpected home repair issues, Janice handled the problems very well and responsibly. With Janice's excellent, regular communication, we were never in doubt about our pet's well being and the care of our home. Janice was an excellent pet care provider and took very good care of our home. It is very evident that Janice loves animals and they absolutely trust her and love her! My dog and cat were immediately comfortable with Janice and so were we! She is very kind, caring and wants nothing more than to connect with your pet and take outstanding care of them! Janice exceeded our expectations and we wouldn't hesitate to hire her again! Her rate was excellent and very competitive! You can trust Janice!

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.
