Merry Z. says, "i'm not sure i can speak highly enough of victoria, what she managed to accomplish it her general attitude and willingness to help me. i was going out of town and wanted to use the opportunity to board and train my very large dog, who was barking at everything and freaking people out. i knew i couldn't afford one of the bigger companies, who would require more than a week and charge thousands of dollars. i reached out to victoria through thumbtack, and when i explained my situation, she not only readily agreed to help but was even willing to work out a payment plan. he was picked up from my place and dropped off today, a week later. she kept me informed throughout the week and that kept me from worrying. he wasn't a different dog--he was my very good boy, but suddenly manageable and responsive. and clearly happier, now that he feels like he is able to do what is asked and stay calm. what's more, she spent about an hour with us, explaining what she had done and how i could sustain the changes and make sure to carry forward her hard work. she also helped me understand how he had gotten so tough for me to manage, and in a way that didn't blame or judge at all. as a bonus, she also happens to be very cool and talk to and that matters in a potentially stressful situation. i'm so grateful to her and i not only recommend her unreservedly, i intend to keep meeting with her and my pup for refreshers. best money i've spent in recent memory. you can feel confident and safe, and totally optimistic, if victoria is working with your dog."See more

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.
