This company has been horrible. The first assigned sitter canceled for personal reasons. Fine, life happens. Not a big deal. Second sitter comes, she seems fearful of big dogs. Third assigned sitter has been M.I.A. She is supposed to be at my house watching my dogs right now. The company's response is "we don't have a status update right now. " Why am I paying almost 90.00 per night ?!?

They pet sit for my cat sassy. The sitter was a polite student from GW, my sassy fell in love with her and I feel very comfortable with her sitting with my cat while I'm away.

Care of my parents had forced me to put my cleaning and organizing abilities on hold for way too long. The situation in my house had gotten out of hand so much that when I tried to dig out on my own, I just froze. For over a year, I've known I've needed outside assistance. The white flag of surrender was finally raised, leading me to chose Errand Works, LLC, for life support. Making the decision to finally set an appointment was truly the hardest part. Jennifer W. showed up to evaluate "the situation" for a future appt. I immediately knew I was in good hands for she gave me HOPE! We made a date for the following week to tackle just one room for four hours straight. The progress made was incredible as she kept me on task, which is not easy. She knew exactly when to nudge me along as well as when to be gentle and let me have a minute to regain my thoughts. We were able to expand out of the initial room and take care of some other things needing attention as well. I will use the momentum gained from today to continue the purge and filing motivation on my own for awhile. When I get stumped again, I won't hesitate to call Jennifer for help. Thank you so much Jennifer and Errand Works! I'll see you again soon!

We have been with Spoiled Paws for almost 9 years now. It is worth having her stop by the house to let my dog out and enjoy the sun for some time during the day. Caroline does a great job with our dog.

Great company, recommend highly! Shown are a few pics of some of the work done around my house. 28 ton of rock plus much more in just 2 days. Have used them on many other occasions and never been disappointed.

Love them! We already used them twice and are very happy with the service they are providing while we are on vacation. Love to find the notes of how our cat Tigger was doing every day and how he responded to someone coming into our house. It has taken all the anxiety out of him when we travel as he knows he gets to stay in his home and will be taken care of. I also like that Cupid Pets will check on the house (mail, plants, trash) if needed and I found everything in good shape when we came back home. I highly recommend their service and I find their rated very reasonable for the love and care they give our cat.

Jody was (and still is) a tremendous help! She came prepared with lots of great ideas and information, all of which were extremely helpful. I especially appreciated her advice on making mealtime a fun and educational experience. He has really taken to the games/toys to get his food, rather than gulping it down in 5 seconds. With her guidance, we have registered our puppy for his first kindergarten class. He is off to a great start! We are taking advantage of Jody's new service, in-home puppy sitting. We had hoped to take a vacation this summer, but with a new puppy it did not seem possible. Jody has a great service in which she will stay with your little one, in your home, and continue to work with them. No need for boarding! I am happy to recommend Jody to anyone looking for a wonderful trainer, who obviously loves puppies. I have already given her information to two friends with new puppies.

I sent a message mid morning and he was at my house at 1:30. He put together an Ikea wardrobe in a couple hours. Everything was perfect. Great job.

Crissi has been taking care of my cats (and watching my house!) whenever I go away for many years now. With her knowledge, overall capability and degree of integrity, I am able to relax and enjoy my vacation, knowing all will be taken care of. I rely completely on Crissi for pet sitting and can recommend her without hesitation.

I was connected to Melina to help me on Saturday's to walk my pup. She has been so responsive and great with my dog. Other people have seen her out in the neighborhood with him and said he looks happy as can be. I really appreciate having someone that can help on the weekends since most dog walkers won't. I highly recommend Melina and I'm so glad we found her!

Deb and her team did a wonderful job with our crazy pup, all of our requests and instructions were followed to a 'T' and we had several text updates (and a great note!) throughout the day. We are excited to have Pet Buddies sit for us again, next month! Highly recommended and exceptional service!

Cindy is an amazing pet sitter! She's always been very responsive, handles everything with ease, and my four-legged friends are always very well cared for, which gives me peace of mind when I'm away.

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.
