We stopped boarding our cat, Michaleen, when he started throwing hissy fits every time we tried. He is much better when we have someone come to the house. When we moved from Texas to Oregon, we needed to find a new pet sitter. Brittany came to our home to meet Michaleen (and us!) and he loves her! Rubbed against her, let her scratch his ears - I'm thrilled. Obviously, so is my cat.

Mary-Anne is a great instructor. We met and made a plan for the exercise program and she even advises on nutrition. She's not just knowledgeable about yoga, but also knows Pilates, general fitness, etc. She's flexible about session times and dates as well as where to meet. We've gone on walks and have a hike planned. She comes to my house and brings equipment so she makes it really easy on me! We're also planning on using the gym in my complex. Couldn't say enough good things about her. Highly recommend!

Heather is very nice and thoughtful, and was willing to come to the house to meet my animals as well as get the layout and go over my needs while away. She stayed a couple nights to take care of things and I felt fully confident in her services. She performed well and is completely trustworthy and I felt safe leaving my babies in her hands. Heather is experienced with all types of animals and she also left the house in immaculate condition. I am excited to use her again for house-sitting and pet-sitting services!

I trust very few people to be in my house when I am out of town, but I absolutely trust Janna at Phoenix Pet Care. She is reliable, dependable, and she takes great care of my dog whenever I am out of town. My dog is so much happier being at home and being cared for by Janna rather than being stuck in boarding. I have been using Janna's services for years, and I will continue to use her in the future.

I feel I need to chime in on Kendra's innate ability with boarding animals. To say Kendra is good with pets is an understatement. Kendra goes the extra mile with each creature she comes in contact with; she has an animal rescue kit in her van just in case she comes across an animal in need! A few summers ago, I had a temporary job take me out of state for a month and couldn't take my cat with me. Frantically, I tried to think of a caregiver who would put up with my temperamental feline friend. My cat is not really a "people cat" and prefers not to be touched by anyone other than me; I was truly panicked about finding a place for her. Somehow my kitty was relaxed and at ease while purring and sitting on Kendra's lap only within a few short minutes of reaching the house (not something I have ever seen). Needless to say, all of my worries were put at ease immediately. If your loved one needs a place to stay, look no further! Kendra's compassion, openness and knowledge of dogs, cats, and other furry or feathered friends will amaze you.

Sit & Stay was my go to pet sitting service for many years until I moved out of state. My kitties always had the best care from Colleen and Carol, I could travel without worring about them. I wish I had a service as good in my current location.

I had Gail take care of my dogs over Thanksgiving. She was very good with them and caught onto their personalities right away. My doggies love Gail! Gail sent pictures every day which helped immensly with not having to worry that they were ok. The dogs were happy when we got home which is an indication that they were well taken care of. I will use Gail again for sure.

      Laura is my first choice of who to leave my kitties with if I am ever out of town. She is so loving towards them, feeds them, cleans their litterbox, gives them fresh water, ensures the temperature of the apartment is safe and comfortable for them. She also brushes and plays with them so they get some excercise and she cuddles with them and showers them with affection. Should anything happen to them I trust Laura's knowledge and good judgement. She would communicate and ensure veterinary care was received if needed. Laura is the most reliable, responsible and loving person I know to leave my kitties with. Have known her about 10 years.

        We had Julie come out to clean before a Realtor's arrival the next day. She went through the house bottom to top. Cleaned hand prints that I hadn't even seen, did extra unexpected things like vacuuming the lamp shades, windexing glass on wall art, cleaned base mouldings, door jams& doors+ the regular cleaning in Kitchen & Bathrooms & rest of the house. The house was spotless when she finished. A 5 Star job for a reasonable price. I have asked her to come back & have recommended her to all my friends.

          Kristi house sat for me in my Irvington Neighborhood 2,200 square foot house. She watched over both another renter in the master suite, house logistics and my 20lb Lhasa Apso. She was a dream and after 3 months I returned to a very clean and happy house and a very well adjusted dog. I would trust her and have her stay anytime!

          I'm a retired military, DAVet, and a recent widower looking for something to provide experienced service in this area to start. I have over 7 years of experience with B&B, once in Albany, Oregon. If you're looking for someone to house-sit privately and maybe tend to your plants and animals, or if you're looking for some sort of data entry work on your computer, please contact me before you spend many times the amount on someone who might cramp your lifestyle. You don't have to worry about your liquor or food if you're looking for a house-sitter, as I don't drink alcohol and will obtain my own food, and you don't have to worry about someone who may be hosting wild parties or whatever. I'll respect your wishes, whatever they might be. I also offer experienced bed-and-breakfast and house-sitting. I am interested in finding (out of the way) clean environment (smoke-free) and houses in need of overnight security while owners are away. I can also provide care for friendly pets. I have my own four-legged medical companion. Please feel free to contact me with your questions. Thank you so much for your kind consideration.

          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.
