I hired Lori to house sit/pet sit while we were out of town. I could not have been happier. My house looked better than when I left it and my pets were super well taken care of. I've now booked Lori for all my out of town stays. She's the best.

Jessica has been the best!!!! I love my clean and decluttered house!!! Before I hired Jessica, I had a cluttered house and didn't know where to start on getting rid of everything. The first thing I noticed about Jessica was her work ethic upon arriving and her passion for what she does and her clients satisfaction. Since hiring Jessica, I have a pristine house and she's only a text/call if I need her help. The best part is the feeling that I have a clean house, a closet I can walk in (not the case previously) and the inspiration to continue what she's started in my house. You deserve to hire Jessica if you are in a similar place I was. My husband also can't quit talking about how clean the house is and I've been beaming ear to ear!! I could go on for days.... I am so excited!!! Hire Jessica! :)

Liz did a great job caring for Violet and Olive. I think It made a huge difference for them to stay in their house instead of being boarded. I appreciate the help

Great pet sitter and dog walker. Rhonda has been taking care of my dog since I had him and she is really great with him and goes above and beyond just walking and house sitting. Her focus is always the well being of the animals she takes care of.

We've done a meet and greet with Madi and our two GSDs LOVE her! We are doing an evening this week for Madi to spend some time with the dogs before she house sits with them within the next couple of weeks. Madi was extremely professional and has a great energy about her plus she's just qualified in dog training so we are looking forward to hiring her for that too to help out with our fur-babies. Highly recommend.

I was able to schedule Cibele for house sitting and cleaning.. My two fur babies were very happy with her.. Well taken care. Just like if I were here. I've used several companies for cleaning and found her to be to very thorough ...an excellent job! She's one if the best.. Will definitely schedule her again.

Cookies Pet Care couldn't have been better. Cookie gave us daily peace-or -mind text messages and the best evidences were the calm, happy, healthy kitties we arrived home to. Great service for a very reasonable price.

Linda was pet sitter (stayed in our home, too) to our cocker spaniel for at least 5-6 yrs before his death Fall 2017. We never worried about the house or Lexus (our dog) any time Linda was there. She was attentive to changes in L’s routines and behaviors and updated us if she felt she needed to do so. She had been his groomer for several years before, therefore, knew his temperament and likes/dislikes. Linda stayed with Lexus for periods of 2 days to over 2 weeks. We always came home to a happy dog and a home as clean (or cleaner) than when we left! Of course, as you would expect, there were a couple of “out of the ordinary” situations Linda ran into. She was resourceful in solving them or called for our help if needed. We loved the occasional pictures she sent assuring us our beloved pet was doing well. Linda would still be our pet sitter today if Lexus were still with us. Should we decide to get another pet, she will be the first person we call for sitting services.

I loved getting an email from Megan every day when she checked in to my house and when she completed her visit. She sent pics of my cats every day! When I got home she had not only swept up the cat litter around the boxes, I’m pretty sure she swept up the fur tumbleweeds! I definitely recommend Pup Club and will be using them again when I go out of town this fall!

We met Barbara through Thumbtack. She cared for our pet and home in our absence. My dogs immediately took a liking to her. She left my house clean and spotless. I don't think my dogs missed us at all. We will use her again and again! We are so happy to have found her!

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.
