We have two very geriatric cats and recently relocated here. LDCP sitting has been a great experience and our cats are happy. While they would prefer that we never leave, at least when we do, we know they'll be well cared for and safe at home.

We badly needed a deep-cleaning and Carol did a great job for us, even working more hours than we asked for. She is very thorough and really cares about leaving the house ultra-clean! If you hire Carol's Helping Hands, you'll know you're in really "good hands" with Carol Baran.

Ms. Froehlich provided exceptional dog sitting service for me while I was away for a week. She was a natural with my 6 year old rottweiler and went above and beyond the call of duty. She made sure that he had his daily walks, and the love and attention he deserved while I was away. I don't think he missed me at all. She even went as far as giving him a bath. I will definitely use Ms. Froehlich's services again.

Linda stayed at our house for a week. She came by several times before we even left to get to know our dog, who is very wary of strangers. They became fast friends! She also took great care of our cat, and the house, and stayed in contact with us throughout our vacation. I had total peace-of-mind knowing she was taking care of things back home. I definitely plan to contact Linda again when we go out-of-town.

Sarah takes excellent care of our dogs. I never worry about them when they are in Sarah’s care. She dotes on them & our house is always cleaner than what we left it. We have been blessed to find Sarah. And our dogs absolutely love her too!!

I feel very comfortable leaving my pets in Sarah's care. She goes way beyond what's expected. She will medicate when needed, and gives them all so much attention. I think my dog prefers Sarah over me. I would recommend Sara to everyone.

    During a recent 1 week vacation, Cindy was tasked with feeding my cat, cleaning her litter box, and collecting my mail. She performed as expected with daily text message reports. The house was in good condition on my return. I would use her services again.

    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.
