Becky was so nice and took great care of our pets when we were away on vacation. It was such a relief to let our pets stay in our home and have them well cared for! Highly recommend!

Lisa did an amazing job watching my dog for one week at my house while I was traveling. She took extra time walking and playing with her twice a day and sent me a couple updates on how everything was going. Lisa not only cares about doing a good job but has a special love for animals. I definitely recommend hiring Lisa for pet sitting!

Hannah has been the most the reliable, caring, responsible, and compassionate person I have ever hired. She has watched my house and all of my pets—dogs, chinchilla, cat, fish—for the past four years, and she is the only reason I feel comfortable when I have to leave town. She is also incredibly considerate; for example, knowing how exhausted I would be after a long trip overseas, Hannah had a vegetarian dinner cooked and waiting for me the evening I returned home. She cares about my pets as if they were her own, and she leaves my house in pristine condition after house-sitting. I would never trust anyone with my home and pets like I do Hannah. You would be lucky to have her working for you.—Cecilia Infante

I had a great experience using Imperative to match me with a house cleaner. They met all of my expectations by being on-time and thorough. The house cleaner made parts of my home clean that I didn't even realize were dirty. I will refer to them again. I really liked the text message reminder and house cleaner profile too.

Frances has watched our house, 2 dogs and 1 cat for 7 weeks. She was great! Frances kept in touch with us while we were away, updating us on how the pets were doing. When we returned, the house was cleaner than it was when we left! Frances is fun and outgoing - I highly recommend her.

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.
