Elmer was very good. He was prompt and got the job done quickly. He put together our new rowing machine and a spin cycle. He was also able to do a few more jobs around the house which was great.

Donna and her team provided superlative care of my dog and fish (and house for that matter) while my family and I were traveling out of the country. I will recommend Prima Donna Pet Services to others and I will most certainly use them again.

Lisa kept an eye on my house and stopped by every 3rd day as agreed. She left me a note for every day she was here, and even stopped by the day I got home to make sure all was well! Knowing she was "on top of the situation" allowed me to enjoy my vacation. I will be sure to use her services again whenever I travel.

I have known Kate for over 25 years and have known many of her past clientele. I have never heard a discouraging word from ANY of her clients. She would take care of a client and their pets, most of whom consider their pet to be a member of their family, with utter professionalism and with the touch of an artist. Kate would often house-sit my apartment while I would be away and I trust her implicitly. I would actually let her run her Loving Pet Co. out of my apartment in exchange for some fabulous meals she would leave for me (she's a chef without the title and can make anything taste great. ANYTHING). But there is one particular story that I would like to relate to show the kind of person that Kate is. On one particular New Years Eve in NYC, Kate was house-sitting for a client and taking care of her rather large dog. The client was away on a short holiday vacation and Kate was responsible for the apartment and the dogs needs, which are both her specialties. While answering the door for a delivery, the dog (which weighed in at over 75 lbs.), jumped up on Kate and pushed her out of the apartment and then pushed the door closed behind her and it automatically locked (it seems that dogs can actually multi-task). From the moment this happened, Kate called the client to inform her of what had just happened and told the client she was calling an emergency 24 hour locksmith. Now, this was back in the age of payphones, not cellphones, so the only way to call was to use actual change, as in quarters, dimes and nickels. So Kate would run back and forth to the payphone to call the locksmith, then back to apartment door to let the dog know it was not alone, then back downstairs to wait for the locksmith. Now, this was on New Years Eve in the Largest city in America, on a frozen cold night with no coat, as she wasn't wearing one when the dog pushed her out of the door. Finally, after almost 2 hours, the locksmith came, replaced the lock and made key copies so Kate could give them to the client, and Kate paid for the whole cost out of her own pocket. Only a true professional would do this. I would heartily recommend Kate and The Loving Pet Co. to ANYONE who would ask, as she is a thorough professional. As good as it gets.

Jorge did an amazing job house and cat sitting for us when we went away for 5 days last week. He is very professional and sweet and clearly loves animals. We have 3 cats all with different medications and he was very thorough asking about their different needs and personalities. He also took great care of our home. I would definitely recommend him and he really gave us peace of mind that our babies were being taken care of. Thank you Jorge!

Sarah was fantastic. Very communicative before, during, and after she house sat my 2 dogs and 2 cats. I received daily updates and questions if something was uncertain (ie: puppy sleeping habits). At the end of her stay she even left a report card for the dogs with note about that day and treats for the dogs, cats and us! The next time we're away, I would absolutely use her again.

I am dentist that, after hours of performing surgery, needed massage therapy & stretching for my hands, arms, & neck. WellThrive Elite helped me a lot with stress & pain relief, which contributes to me helping patients in my dental practice. After sitting for many hrs required for my work, WellThrive Elite helped me with the best fitness for weight loss & general health. Good company.

I have used Nat's services many times in the past five years. She's reliable, dependable and cares for my pets and home as if it were her own. Never a worry with things around the house and she takes care for other things such as my mail, packages, plants, etc. My pets love her and she brings them treats, toys and home made blankets! We love her!!

December 2016 Julie W. Exotic Parrot sitting I was a little reluctant to leave our newly rescued Eclectus parrot for more than just a couple of days, for fear that he might start plucking his feathers again. I instantly liked Katie and knew that this wasn’t just another job for her, but rather her passion. She was not only great around the parrot, but my dog took to her as well. Katie went above and beyond caring for our parrot. She sent me a video of him playing in his water bowl and pictures every day. I absolutely wasn’t worried about him for a minute while we were away. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone to care for their pet.

The Perfect Wife has been a lifesaver for me. I have a townhouse property in Manhattan and I needed someone to babysit it, which involved opening the door for realtors, gardeners, plumbers, as well as supervising the work and organizing the house. I needed someone to be me and be there with integrity and professionalism. The Perfect Wife has been reliable and efficient. They are always available and have the best solution for my needs. María and Adrian are great workers I trust them. They have the keys to my place and I am so happy with their work. They really back me up in Manhattan. I recommend their services and most of all I recommend them.

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.
