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.

Robert was great to work with. He arrived on the scheduled date and time. Robert is highly dependable and skilled in multiple areas. He is very detailed oriented. I’ll be hiring him to complete a few projects around the house and would definitely recommend him in the future.

We have used Chris several times to Pet Sit for us. We used him to live in our house and sit with our 12 year Lab and our cat while we went on vacation. Our dog is needy and did require medication which Chris expertly handled. Chris also fed our fish. While we were away Chris would email us photos to show they were well cared for and happy. When we came home from vacation our pets were always happy and well cared for and the house was left clean and neat. Chris seems to enjoy our pets. We would recommend him to anyone considering using a pet sitter.

We've used Poochtastic on several occasions and have never been disappointed. They did a wonderful job caring for our two dogs and cats. We came home to a clean house and tired puppies each time. Would highly recommend them.

Rene has taken great care of my boxer Roxy as well as my home. She house sits, picks up the mail, and makes sure my Roxy gets her meds on time. Rene is very reliable and trustworthy. I take vacation for weeks at a time and never had any issues. I feel confident when I'm away that Roxy is in the best of care. Rene is truly an animal lover. She loves my Roxy as if she were her own.

Jazzy was great! We went away for a long day trip and she came over twice during the day. She stayed with my three fur babies for a good amount of time, sent me pictures, and took great care of them. We will definitely be using her services again!

Shawna is in one word- AMAZING! Shawna is professional, responsible, accountable, friendly and will care for your pets as if they were her own! We began using Shawna's pet sitting services 9 months ago during an overseas vacation. We have 3 high energy and one that has special needs. She visited the home for extended visits, feedings and administered medication to our 3 dogs. During the 7 days she sent us daily updates including pictures which made us feel so comfortable to know the dogs were in such great hands. Shawna is also so knowledgable she answers all your questions and gives great feedback! She pays such great attention to detail- our dogs love her! We have continued to use her services for daily visits for our dogs and I would never recommend anyone else! Bottom line- you will not find a better pet care provider in the Tampa Bay area. Shawna is THE BEST!

Great Job Sarah, my Isabella loved your visits. I was doubtful because she is older that she could be trained. However you came in and helped her be a better behaved girl. She is still sitting and staying and leaving it. Great JOB.

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.

    Sanju was the perfect choice for a pet sitter. She took care of my dog Napoleon very well and when she house sat, everything went very well. She is very kind and provides multiple updates throughout the day, including pictures. Will definitely be using her services again.

    Laura was an excellent pet sitter for my 2 cats while I was out of town for a week and a half. Not only does she just stop in to feed and water your pets, but she takes the time to make them feel comfortable. I really appreciated how she plays with them and really tries to cater to each pet's individual needs. It's easy to tell that she genuinely loves what she does! She's also an outstanding photographer and will happily send text and photo updates upon request. I highly recommend Laura for all your pet sitting needs in the greater Palm Harbor / Oldsmar area!

    Lisa was prompt and attentive to my dog Cody's needs. She has a kind and courteous demeanor, wiling to go the extra step to help on watering plans and collecting mail from outside. Lisa immediately put me at ease and reassured me that everything would be all right. Cody was well cared for and happy to see my family when we returned! I would definitely hire Lisa again next time I go away, and gladly recommend her services to those looking for a petsitter.

    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.
