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.

Karen was given the task of making my patio and areas around my house look good. She had some great ideas and I let her do her thing! I am well pleased! She was quick, thorough and creative. Will definitely call her 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.

The thorough pre-sitting visit where the sitters gathered information and got to know my cat. They also inquired about any special quirks my cat might have so they could be aware and take care of him in the best way. I felt extremely confident that in the case of an emergency they would be on top of it and get him any help he might need. Simply the best pet sitters ever!

    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.

    Dependable and accommodating. She showed up when I asked. Stayed as long as I needed. And best of all Suzie (my 🐕) was cared for.

    AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING! Titi came all the way from Chicago city to help me clean my house on such short notice. 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.

    Tami is AMAZING! After moving to valparaiso, we were worried about finding a great sitter who would nurture and care for our cats as much as we do. Tami went above and beyond any expectation that we had. While on vacation, she sent me videos and pictures of my furry children and it provided me with a great sense of relief so I could enjoy my trip. If your looking for a trustworthy, reliable, and great with animals sitter look no further as Head to Tail is truly exceptional.

    I can say that our experience with Susan caring for our little Ginger (adopted pooch of 2 years), was truly awesome! From the first meet & greet there was a "love connection". Clearly Susan has a love for dogs as though they were her own. When I returned home from my trip after Susan cared for Ginger, it was quite obvious that she was well cared for and exercised properly. Each time Susan has helped us out while away, Ginger walks around the house looking for Susan once she leaves and whines a little as if she's lost her buddy. I would recommend Susan as a reliable and super friendly dog walker/pet sitter!!

    Chris is always so attentive to our pup and very communicative with us which we really appreciate. He is flexible, helpful, and very professional, all things that we value highly. He has great tips when we ask for them and is always willing to go above and beyond. Thanks as always Chris!

    About

    I think each person who does this type of work has a huge desire not just for working with animals, but has to truly have a caregiver personality. We obviously have our own individual personality that we use to communicate and connect not only with owner, but to the pets as well. And animals can sense that right away. I care for the smaller breed dogs in my home. Here they are part of the family!

    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.
