Rachel was very professional and responsive to our request. She came to our house, sat with our cat, and made sure she had the basics...water, food, sanitation. Rachel also picked up the mail and collected the newspaper. The most important thing: she took daily photos and sent them to us.

April has been taking care of our dogs and house for 17 years. During that time she has handled several challenges admirably, even taking one of our dogs who developed an ear infection, to the vet. She has even left us flowers on occasion! She is mature, has had experience working with a vet and is good-humored and calm. I recommend her very highly!

I can't say enough good things about mother-daughter team Kristen and Natalie. It's obvious that they're doing this because they love being with animals. The first day I was gone they sent me a video of Natalie playing with my dog which I absolutely loved! I have never felt more comfortable with any dog sitter I have hired in the past. I knew that I could trust these two in my home and with my much beloved dogs. Kristen is professional, super friendly, and always responds quickly to messages. I have zero complaints and will use K&N Pet Sitting any time I need a sitter in the future!

My dogs love it here. They get so excited when they jump in the car on weekday mornings because they know they are going to Playskool! The staff is great and the care is excellent.

    Diana did a great job dog sitting our boys. We were very surprised when we came home after a long weekend with the family and noticed that she hand wrote all of the daily activities that she did with our babies. You can definitely tell that she cares very strongly about animals, hence her current profession! Thanks Diana for the great care :)

    About

    My care and work for animals is not only a job it is my passion and my life. I provide the one on one care that people want when they cant be with there animal family members. I not only care for them but spend time with them as well. If they need special attention I am more then willing and have much experience in giving that care. If your animal requires medication or certain one on one time I can do that and leave you with no worries that it will be done right and with the utmost of care. Not many animal care places can or will do that. I basically take them under my "family" wing till you get home. I am also trustworthy to not only take care of your animals but also to be in your home. I can provide refrences and am willing to go the extra mile to make sure you have no worries before you head out.

    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.
