All Paws in Pet Sitting was a magnificent service. Amy was a life saver for us. She did a wonderful job with our cats and keeping Alladin (one of our cats) on his medication.

I have had great experiences with both Kimberly the owner and my assigned dog walker Ayanna. When I leave town (even under urgent circumstances and short notice) I have peace of mind that my dogs are happy and home is looked after. Ayanna is astute in noticing when anything seems “off” in my home and provides extensive updates and pictures. Highly recommend their services!

Barbara Hasen has been cleaning my birds' cages for over a decade. She is meticulous and, as a bird owner herself, is as concerned with their safety as she is with the cleanliness of the cage. And we usually do a nail trimming while she is here, saving the us a trip to the groomers. As none of my friends are bird owners, I am also lucky to know Barbara as she provides excellent bird sitting when I go out of town, even on short notice. As an added bonus, her rates are quite reasonable for the services she provides.

      V took care of my cat while I was out of town. He seemed happy, and she did a great job cleaning up after him. I'd use her again anytime I travel.

      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.
