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 ?!?

As the proprietor of Antrim 1844 Country House Hotel, I have worked with Mary on a myriad of interior & exterior design projects over the past 10 years. She is a perfectionist and a professional from a throw pillow to elaborate 14' tall draperies! I guarantee you will enjoy working with her.

Jenny is so professional, and her love for animals is obvious!! She came over on short notice, was punctual and caring with my 3 little rescue dogs. She will be house/pet sitting for us for a weekend as well as when we are away on our 10 day vacation. We are so glad that we have found her!!! For us and for the canine members of the family, it is peace of mind knowing that they are in such capable and loving hands!!

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.

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.

Adam has been working for me as a veterinary technician for nearly two years, and during that time, he has been our go-to pet-sitter when we go out of town. He takes excellent care of our two dogs, and I never have to worry about them when we are away. He sends me daily texts or emails with updates and pictures of our dogs, and I know he spoils them like crazy! When we come home from vacation, Adam has changed the sheets on the guest bed and left our house in very clean condition. We are so fortunate to have Adam as our pet-sitter.

I had a personal dog trainer named Kevin give my dog lessons. What I loved was that I saw results immediately and that he wasn't only patient with my dog whose a Pitbull but he was also really patient with myself. He taught me many things that came in hand. It's also very cheap and they come to your house if you don't have the time to take your dog to where they are. Thank you, I'm very greatful for you guys. I would recommend FourDogLovers to anyone in need of a few training lessons to better their dog.

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!

How do we love Melina? Let us count the ways! I don't often write long reviews like this, but she is worth it and we think every family with pets should have someone like Melina. First of all - we want the world to know about her! She truly cares about our pets, booking her is super convenient, and her service goes beyond pet care. She looks out for our house and plants, loads the sheets in the washer when she leaves, and manages the trash bins if we're away on trash pick-up days. The last time she was here, she took the kitchen trash out for us. We have a dog door and fenced yard, and she even picked up after the dogs the last time she was here (totally not a requirement for us!). She doesn't complain if our cat has an accident, and she's never charged us more for the little extras. We have 2 large dogs and a cat, and she always asks questions if she notices something is amiss. My husband and I tend to be last minute planners (we do the best we can, and I don't recommend it!), but have never once had an issue booking Melina when we're in a bind - that's because even when she's got a full schedule, she does what she can to work around her other commitments to fit us in. We've actually only met her in person one time for the initial meeting a couple of years ago. She makes it super easy, by being extremely responsive and using common and current technology - text message, email, Thumbtack, spreadsheets, and Venmo. She doesn't mind when I send long email updates or send a spreadsheet if we need to coordinate due to one or two-week long trips. She always sends an update and photos of the pets every time she arrives and leaves. Finally, she didn't originally have a frequency discount, but when we asked about it, she created one for us. Melina is a rockstar and comes highly recommended from a grateful pet family! Thank you so much, Melina!

Ken is a super nice guy we were totally comfortable with being in our house and has a ton of experience (30 something years?). He caught some stuff the home inspector our buyers hired didn’t even note and figured out one of our repair requests wasn’t actually necessary. Their inspector said some copper pipes were corroded when they really just needed a good cleaning!!! I had trouble finding someone for my little list of stuff to accomplish after our home inspection. It seemed like folks didn’t want to waste their time with a couple of little projects in their busy season, but Ken made time for us and exceeded our expectations. We will likely be hiring him again down the road after we move!

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.

Brandon watched our dog and cats and was fantastic! They absolutely loved him and we felt really good about leaving them in his care. He took care of the animals and our house like his own. Would definitely use him again!

My dog LOVES Jessica. She's watched him many times and he never is frightened to be left at her place (or left at my apt with her watching). She's a friend to all animals and hiring her would be a great decision. A+!

    I offer house- and pet sitting while you are away on vacation. Reliable service is provided to care for your pet and home so you have peace of mind.

    About

    I have over 35 years of experience with animals (especially dogs and cats), including pets with special needs and large-breed dogs. I was the proud owner of a Siberian husky and 2 husky/lab mixes for over 18 years and I've recently started pet sitting a Great Pyrenees in my home and visiting various friends' cats to keep them company when their owners are away so I'm very familiar and comfortable with all sorts of animals, especially large-breed and overly active dogs. I have always had a natural ability and connection with animals (that few people have), so I fully understand how important your pets are to you and your family and I will treat them with the same love and respect as if they were my own family! I’m extremely dependable, honest, responsible, caring, trustworthy and respectful of your pets and property. I’m conveniently located, offering the safe and secure services that you would expect for you, your pets, and your property. Offering more than just your average dog walking service, I’ll give your dog(s) adequate time to allow them to “go potty” while also allowing enough time, love and attention to play with your pets (not just dogs but all sorts of domestic house pets) to provide quality fun, exercise, companionship and play time allowing you true peace of mind when you’re just not able to be there. Feeding and scheduled medication administration services are also available. I look forward to meeting you and your pet(s) soon!

      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.
