Jerrie was a pet sitter for my chihuahua Milo for years. She also would even house sit for me, and take care of him and my home when I was out of town. She was so patient with him despite him taking a long time to warm up to new people, he bonded with her right away. Jerrie is so natural with animals and such a kind and caring person. She goes above and beyond to send you updates, pictures, and even keeps a detailed notebook about how your dog does each time she dog sits and what activities they do (walking, playing, feeding). I trusted her completely to care for my dog and would recommend her to anyone looking for a caring, reliable and responsive pet sitter.

We have a 6 month old kitty that we left for the 1st time when we went on vacation. Multiple people bid on the job from the Thumbtrack post. After an exchange of emails we hired Christine even though hers was not the lowest bid. She responded to each quickly and directly. Christine then came to our house to meet us and our kitten. Like many cats, ours doesn't warm to strangers, but Christine made good progress. While gone she visited our cat twice a day. During each visit she would text us with a message about how and what our cat was up to. Most of the time she included a fun photo. It was reassuring and allowed us to better enjoy our vacation! Christine even vacuumed the loose litter up from around the box. A task we did not ask her to do but tells you a lot about her character. We will have her back and I recommend her to others without hesitation.

5-day overnight pet sit of our two cats and dog plus midday dog walks. Our pets loved Megan and her staff. We received daily text updates with photos so we could tell how happy they were. No pet accidents inside the house either. Everything was well taken care of and the house was nice and tidy when we got back. Good price and well worth it for the peace of mind knowing our home and pets were being looked after every night we were away.

I am more than happy to recommend the cleaning services that Lucy offers! I recently moved and she & her husband were available on very short notice. On the day of my move she arrived right on time and my house was spick and span spotless, even in the nooks & cranies, in a little more than 3 hrs. I appreciated the time, care and thoroughness which made my former home very welcoming for the new one. I would recommender her services and look forward to having her wonderful cleaning skills work her magic in my new home!

I would absolutely recommend Carried Away Clean. 1.) They did a really thorough deep-cleaning of our newly purchased house before we moved in. You can trust they will get the job done in detail! I've hired cleaners in the past which ended up costing more money and being less satisfied. Carried Away Clean provided 100% satisfaction for a very reasonable price. 2.) Jessica is so good at communicating. Some services are hard to get a hold of or are difficult to receive a response back. Jessica was so good at communicating - calling me back and answering all of my questions. 3.) Jessica was incredibly flexible with me when I unexpectedly had to change the time/day of our cleaning appt. I really appreciated how she worked to fit me in as best as possible. 4.) I love the non-toxic cleaning supplies. I had a great experience with Carried Away Clean and would definitely recommended their cleaning services.

Outstanding! I used Pampered Pooch Dog Walking (not to be confused with Pampered Pooch Playground) for an in home 4 day/night stay for my chocolate lab.I was a bit hesitant because having someone live in the home without being present is a big step, for me! My big chocolate could not have been taken care of better as well as my home! Pooch even got his morning PB toast. It was all left better than I left it, including shoveling some snow! I love this place and have no doubt I will use them again. I only hope I can get all the sitting dates I need once the word gets around!

We were out of town while our renters moved out and new renters moved in. We wanted to make sure that the house was clean for the new renters and couldn't be there to do it ourselves. Emily was a great help. The only thing I would have changed would have been discussing the quote further, as it ended up being double the quote, but also double the time. Still a great price!

Punctuality is not relevant in the situation of an out of town trip. Nan kept in touch with us during our 2 week trip out of country. Our cat’s area where he eats & uses his litter box was well kept. She proved to be highly responsible. She also house sit for us.

Hilary came to my home to do a one-time cleaning. She asked lots of questions beforehand and came with specialized supplies. Her rate was competitive and she did an excellent job on all of the cleaning tasks I requested, going above and beyond by deep cleaning the tub to remove residue from an old mat. The house looks and smells great! I will definitely hire her for any future cleaning and decorating projects.

Sarah has been walking my dog, Angus, over the past 2 years. My dog has always been very shy and nervous and Sarah has always been patient with him and he warmed up to her very quickly! When we run into her on our walks, he always runs right up and wants to say hi to her! She is extremely responsive and reliable when I need her to dog sit or take Angus on additional walks. Her prices are extremely reasonable, and she does such a great job. She always sends photos from the daily walk and I can tell she genuinely cares about the dogs. I would recommend her services to anyone in need of a walker!

Kristine took care of our German Shepard, Dio, for an extended period over the holidays. Kristine took care of Dio as if she was her own. Daily walks and trips to the dog park were just some of the ways Kristine ensured our dog stayed healthy and happy. Kristine was professional but also warm and easy to talk to and it made the tough part of leaving a loved pet behind so much easier. We will definitely call on Kristine for any future pet sitting needs and we highly recommend her to anyone seeking a dependable and skilled caregiver.

Ashley was the sitter for my sweet small dog, Jodi, while I participated in the MS150. She watched my dog in-house for me for two days for a competitive price. Jodi LOVED her and when I returned was happy and had been exercised both days. Would definitely recommend Ashley, and plan to work with her again.

    Annie is very friendly, took good care of our two cats, and even helped solve a long-running litter box problem. We appreciate the e-mail updates she sent us while we were away and the dated notes she left us in the kitchen so we could tell when she came and what she did. We will definitely ask her to cat-sit again during our next vacation!

    I am over the moon with the quality of care I have received from Alex and Marea. They are professional, dependable, reliable and take great care with my three dogs. They feed and walk my dogs Mon-Fri.. transport them to daycare when requested and contact me with concerns or suggestions, which I greatly appreciate.. I could not ask for more. They are very kind, friendly and loving people.

    I have had BJ pet sit for me for over 10 years( 2 dogs and 2 cats). Shes reliable, observant and caring. I plan my vacations around her availability. Having her take care of my furry babies and my home sets my mind at ease and helps aid in relaxation while I'm on vacation. I don't trust anyone else with the most precious things in my life.

    When Farrah walked in to meet us and our dogs, she immediately sat next to the dogs and started talking to them in their language, and sort of ignored us. I knew then that she was the perfect person to stay for 3 weeks with our darlings. They now love her and are so excited every time she comes over. She left the house clean and the dogs healthy. She is a warm and empathetic person who can be trusted completely. She also communicated with us during our whole vacation, so we knew everything was going well. We are so relieved to have Farrah as our pets' caregiver.

    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.
