We have hired Cindy several times to pet sit/house sit for our dogs. We currently have 9 dogs and have had as many as 13 when she sat for them. About half of the dogs are on various medications both morning and evening. She stays overnight in our home and treats our dogs as if they were her own. Cindy is wonderful. She knows all their names and keeps them in their routines. The dogs are always happy when we get home and the house is clean. The dogs are always happy to see Cindy when she comes at other times than when she is sitting for us so I know they are well taken care of and like her. I would definitely recommend her to take care of any of my animals.

My pets love Amy. She takes care of my dogs and cats. She feeds them. Lets them out and plays with them. She clips their nails. My cats that don't really like anyone will sit in her lap. And after her visit, she sends some great pictures. We all love her.

We are here for your pets. We do not do things like the rest of the industry. The pets that make their resignation with us will be shown the home upon arrival and will never be kenneled. They have free roam and are allowed to sleep on beds and sofas. Linens are washed daily. Please feel free to tour the home. We have been pet sitting for 15 yrs on a small basis. Please let us know how we can help with your baby.

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.
