Elmer was very good. He was prompt and got the job done quickly. He put together our new rowing machine and a spin cycle. He was also able to do a few more jobs around the house which was great.

Appreciate Top to Bottom's integrity and honesty. Showed up to do a cleaning job but when she realized the house was going up for sale and would eventually be gutted, she told me not to waste my money. Didn't even take payment for her travel or trouble!

Kyle has been taking care of my two dogs when I travel or just have long days at the office. He is extremely reliable, can be trusted to be at your house by himself, and great with my dogs. He always writes me detailed updates after his visits with pictures. I highly recommend him!

Blane was referred by a friend to help with purging and redefining our space after two rooms were free in my house. Blane truly has both vision and is also hands on. We emptied shelves, moved tables, got rid of a rug to open up the space. In three visits Blane found innovative ways of arranging furniture and artwork. We found a desk in one room that was not being used and moved it up to my newly created office. We also emptied a shelf to put in a newly created tv room. Blane is very aware of feng shui so that in my office he suggested I find a mirror so that although my back is facing the door when sitting at my desk, it is all cool now. In the first floor that was cluttered we cleared a cabinet filled with mail and replaced it with a glass bowl and later put up curtains. A very visually unaware friend noticed noticed the change as well as the curtains. On our most recent meeting we shopped for pillows and curtains and came back to the house to hang the curtains up. Blane finds innovative and aesthetic ways of arranging a room and clearing space. He also makes suggestions so that I went to the Container Store on my own and cleaned my dresser tops and rearranged my jewelry in boxes and containers so that now I know what I have. Blane is friendly and easy to work with, teaching you "how to fish" so that going forward I can utilize some of his vision and expertise on my own. I will call him back to work on my closets, but am going to clear some more space before then. Blane is truly a find. I am so happy that he came into my life.

Donna and her team provided superlative care of my dog and fish (and house for that matter) while my family and I were traveling out of the country. I will recommend Prima Donna Pet Services to others and I will most certainly use them again.

I have known Kate for over 25 years and have known many of her past clientele. I have never heard a discouraging word from ANY of her clients. She would take care of a client and their pets, most of whom consider their pet to be a member of their family, with utter professionalism and with the touch of an artist. Kate would often house-sit my apartment while I would be away and I trust her implicitly. I would actually let her run her Loving Pet Co. out of my apartment in exchange for some fabulous meals she would leave for me (she's a chef without the title and can make anything taste great. ANYTHING). But there is one particular story that I would like to relate to show the kind of person that Kate is. On one particular New Years Eve in NYC, Kate was house-sitting for a client and taking care of her rather large dog. The client was away on a short holiday vacation and Kate was responsible for the apartment and the dogs needs, which are both her specialties. While answering the door for a delivery, the dog (which weighed in at over 75 lbs.), jumped up on Kate and pushed her out of the apartment and then pushed the door closed behind her and it automatically locked (it seems that dogs can actually multi-task). From the moment this happened, Kate called the client to inform her of what had just happened and told the client she was calling an emergency 24 hour locksmith. Now, this was back in the age of payphones, not cellphones, so the only way to call was to use actual change, as in quarters, dimes and nickels. So Kate would run back and forth to the payphone to call the locksmith, then back to apartment door to let the dog know it was not alone, then back downstairs to wait for the locksmith. Now, this was on New Years Eve in the Largest city in America, on a frozen cold night with no coat, as she wasn't wearing one when the dog pushed her out of the door. Finally, after almost 2 hours, the locksmith came, replaced the lock and made key copies so Kate could give them to the client, and Kate paid for the whole cost out of her own pocket. Only a true professional would do this. I would heartily recommend Kate and The Loving Pet Co. to ANYONE who would ask, as she is a thorough professional. As good as it gets.

Karen is amazing! I never ever worry about my dogs when she is here. (And i have rescue dogs one of which has issues.) I can travel and work with peace of mind. She is gentle; Dependable; Trustworthy. My dogs love her. She goes above and beyond all the time. I have had numerous dog sitters in the past. No more. This woman will always be the one i call for dog sitting. Do yourself a favor. Ditch the others and go with Karen. She’s fabulous!

Jorge did an amazing job house and cat sitting for us when we went away for 5 days last week. He is very professional and sweet and clearly loves animals. We have 3 cats all with different medications and he was very thorough asking about their different needs and personalities. He also took great care of our home. I would definitely recommend him and he really gave us peace of mind that our babies were being taken care of. Thank you Jorge!

I am dentist that, after hours of performing surgery, needed massage therapy & stretching for my hands, arms, & neck. WellThrive Elite helped me a lot with stress & pain relief, which contributes to me helping patients in my dental practice. After sitting for many hrs required for my work, WellThrive Elite helped me with the best fitness for weight loss & general health. Good company.

Peggy is lovely! I have used her service on several occasions. She is great with my two senior cats who very much enjoy Peggy's weekend visits when we go away. She's very trustworthy and always gives an update after she visits with my kitties. I always feel relieved to know my pets are in great hands with peg while I'm out of town. I highly recommend Peg and I will continue to use her service and refer my friends and family. Thanks for everything!!!

The Perfect Wife has been a lifesaver for me. I have a townhouse property in Manhattan and I needed someone to babysit it, which involved opening the door for realtors, gardeners, plumbers, as well as supervising the work and organizing the house. I needed someone to be me and be there with integrity and professionalism. The Perfect Wife has been reliable and efficient. They are always available and have the best solution for my needs. María and Adrian are great workers I trust them. They have the keys to my place and I am so happy with their work. They really back me up in Manhattan. I recommend their services and most of all I recommend them.

December 2016 Julie W. Exotic Parrot sitting I was a little reluctant to leave our newly rescued Eclectus parrot for more than just a couple of days, for fear that he might start plucking his feathers again. I instantly liked Katie and knew that this wasn’t just another job for her, but rather her passion. She was not only great around the parrot, but my dog took to her as well. Katie went above and beyond caring for our parrot. She sent me a video of him playing in his water bowl and pictures every day. I absolutely wasn’t worried about him for a minute while we were away. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone to care for their pet.

Jen has been walking our two dogs (11 yrs and 2 yrs) for almost a year now, and we are so fortunate to have found her! She is extremely reliable, flexible, and responsive. She always sends me texts to let me know she's been to the house (and what the dogs did on their walk), and lets me know if anything seems off in their behavior/routines. She was also extremely helpful with advice about training/behavior issues with our new rescue pup. I work in Manhattan and have a long commute-- sometimes things come up last minute and Jen is always available to help if I need an extra visit. I have no reservations recommending her service.

Mark, his son & daughter took good care of our dog Bear while we were away for a week. He was walked & groomed daily. Mark offered flexibility in case our schedule changed and was responsive to my texts. They accommodated my request that no other animals be in the household while caring for Bear and he received the attention that we wanted him to have rather than being boarded at a Kennel. Will definitely reach out to The Dawg House for future sittings.

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.
