Josh actually came same day. Stayed true to his estimate. I felt great having him working in the house knowing he is licensed and insured. He did a great job so I am having him back for another project. Thanks for making my first time using thumbtack a great experience. Will use Josh and this site again.

Tilly was great, she came early and got right to work unpacking for me. She gave me a boost in a few rooms and made me feel much more at home in my new house.

Belinda provided excellent care for our dog. Our dog, being a rescue dog, required specialized care in which she delivered; this included having patience, providing lots of attention, and staying overnight. All of which she did all eagerly. Belinda came to our house on a couple different occasions so our dog could become familiar with her. She even brought our Pebbles a new toy and treats! She maintained communication with us while we were away, providing updates and sending pictures. While it was difficult to leave our dog (specially being new to this state) I did find comfort knowing she and our house were being well cared for. Belinda is truly a sweet and caring person to owners and their pets as well as honest and responsible. We will definitely be using her services again:)! Thank you Belinda! We greatly appreciate all you have done for us!

This review is long overdue. I used this company a few months ago and they did an excellent job. I dont think my house has ever been as clean. I have used other cleaning companies on Thumbtack before, and this was by far the best experience.

I have utilized From My House To Yours pet sitting service for more than six years now. Karen and her team have taken excellent care of my dogs and my home. They have provided pet visits during the week while my husband and I are at work and also when we are on vacation. Karen and her team are loved by my dogs. My dogs look forward to seeing their pet sitter and I am confident of the care that is provided to my dogs when I am away from home. I highly recommend the service they provide and I am confident of the love that they show to the pets in their care.

    I could not ask for anyone better to care for my animals. Jazmin loves my animals like they were her own. When Mikey, my cat, was sick she has no problem giving him his medications. She spends time with them, it's not run in do what she has to do then leave, no, she spends time with them and plays with them, gives them quality time. My dog Roxy, is always excited to see her and loves her walks with Jazmin. Jazmin is concerned about their well being and what is best for them. I totally trust Jazmin and would recommend her highly. she has become part of my family. What is wonderful about Jazmin is she takes pictures when she comes and sends them to you which I love. I can not say enough about how wonder At Your Home Pet Sitting is, you can not go wrong.

A wonderful person to work with and she understood everything exactly how I wanted it to be! The quality of service she provided me is something very rare to find these days. A person of a pure heart and clear intention - to help people live in a cleaner and organized space! Thank you Titi, I will definitely hire you again.

    Ashley was extremely helpful in helping on two separate occasions. A few weeks ago, I had to go out of town unexpectedly, and Ashley was available to look after my cat. Then, last week, Ashley did a phenomenal job mowing my lawn, cleaning up flower beds, trimming bushes and around the perimeter of my house. The work that was done looks great and I will definitely have her back in the future!

    I hired Barb Carter to take care of my cat for a week. She was terrific. I received daily updates about how my cat was eating and how active. My cat had no trouble adjusting to Barb and went right to her lap. I will definitely hire her again. I felt relieved to have left her in such capable and caring hands.

      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.
