We hired Mr. Home Guy to mount our TV on the wall. He was so friendly, right on time, and quick with his work. The TV looks awesome and he even suggested adding a tilt that I wouldn't have thought of! He also offered to put up a mirror that he saw sitting in the corner for no extra cost, which looks great now. All of this for such a reasonable price. I will definitely be using Mr. Home Guy for my next project! THANK YOU!!

We hired Wesley & Melissa to cat sit for 9 days. They visited everyday and as requested spent some quality time with our cat, even playing with her laser toy and brushing her. They sent photos and/or video everyday. Shadow was very happy and well when we got home. Also it was great to come home to a house with a clean litter box! We will hire them again!

MacKenzie did a wonderful job. Not only did she care for our cats, but she left everything neat and clean and brought in our mail and packages. She also gave me text updates on how the cats were doing. I’ll definitely be using MacKenzie for all our pet sitting needs.

Kate came in and with little or no guidance or input from us, transformed our sloppy and cluttered basement into an open and usable area in our cellar. We have several other areas in our house for her to work her magic. Can’t wait to see the results. She’s awesome!

Yvonne was awesome. I've never felt more comfortable leaving my house and cats with someone. She made sure she saw both cats each time she visited and sent me updates during the week plus a lot of extra things my other cat sitters didn't provide me. Very reliable and I would highly recommend her!

Emily has been taking care of our "baby" Belle for the past few years. There is nothing better than going on vacation and feeling so comfortable that our home and our pets are well taken care of. She takes such good care of Belle, and I think Belle is sad when its us coming through the door and not Emily. She spoils them and the house is as clean as I left it. I highly recommend Emily to everyone and anyone that loves their pets and doesn't want to put them in a kennel while you vacation!

My kitten was sick and I was really worried about him, so I asked Katie to watch him all day while I was at work. She stayed with him and texted me about how he was doing. By the end of the day he felt much better and was running around the house like normal. Katie is super nice and compassionate and sincerely loves animals. I trust her more than anyone to look after my kitty! You will not regret choosing Little Lyons Sitting & Care for your petsitting needs. I will definitely choose her again should the need arise.

Kendra has been watching my dog Cooper for 5 years now. I can't think of enough good things to say about her!! It is such a relief to go on vacation and have her stay at our house. Not only does she give my dog excellent care, somehow my house is cleaner then when I left! On one particular trip as we were leaving my dog had a little cough, a couple of days later it got worse and Kendra took him to the vet, picked up medicine and made sure he was well. When we came home he was back to normal. Kendra is always reliable she has never once cancelled and has actually gone out of her way to help us out on last minute trips or emergencies. Most importantly is how much my dog loves her! I have recommended Kendra to many friends and all have been thrilled with her services.

    Lorena did house, yard and pet sitting for me. I have a cat and two guinea pigs. The cat warmed up to her quickly and he was happy to have company while I was gone. Lorena also took great care of all my indoor and outdoor plants including watering my vegetable garden during a very hot summer stretch. I came home to yummie vegetables and happy pets! It is always hard to leave but having a professional and trustworthy sitter really put my mind at ease.

    I was leaving for Italy in three days and my sister who originally agreed to watch my cat baled on me. Needless to say I was in a panic. I contacted Sue and she put me at ease right away. Came by that night to meet my cat and get a layout of my place. She provided references and I provided her with vet info etc. We agreed with her coming by twice a week and her sitting with the cat for about 30 minutes changing the litter etc I felt immediately comfortable and sensed my cat would be in good hands and she was. While in Italy Sue sent me periodic emails letting me know that all was well. I arrived home to a well adjusted cat .She even brought my mail in for me! I would definitely use Sue again!

    Deb watched my house and my beloved family members when I went to Thailand for 2 weeks!! I have 4 dogs ranging from five pounds to 65 pounds and she can handle them all like a pro! All four of my kids (dogs) love her. I recommend Deb's Doggy Daycare to anyone who is looking for someone to love their family member as they would while they are away. She also maintained my house and ensured everything was in order upon my return. She came to visit my home for a while to meet my dogs before she watched them to ensure they knew who she was before I left on my vacation. I utilize her services multiple times per week. She is awesome and a very friendly and trustworthy individual which is hard to come by these days. Once again, I highly recommend her services for house and pet sitting, she is the best!!!!

    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.
