House Sitting in Bernal Heights, San Francisco
Find a loving dog sitter to watch your dog overnight in your home.
“Yet again a great sitter. She is so good with my cat and keeps me updated that I never worry when I'm away. I'm very thankful to have found her.”
“I could not recommend Maggie more highly. She took excellent care of our senior dog and our home while we were away. We appreciated her reliability and consistent communication. She requested care instructions in advance and maintained our pup’s routine so she was comfortable while we were away. Maggie handled our dog’s reactivity like the pro she is and gave us great tips on managing “away time.” We will absolutely book Maggie again.”
“Cole took such great care of Frank! They had a blast hanging out together and I got regular updates/pictures. I felt that Frank was safe with him. When I got home, Frank was relaxed and happy — so I know he felt safe with Cole, too. Will definitely use again and recommend!”
“Absolutely amazing. Anita came to my house for 4 nights/5 days to watch my (very large) black lab mix. She kept me up-to-date on all of the happenings, took him on lots of long walks through the park and seemingly had some great adventures with him. She was very thorough with making sure she knew everything she needed to know- feeding schedule, walk times, treats allowed, behaviors etc. and stuck to it all. I came home to a house as clean as it was when I left. I would highly recommend Anita and I will definitely be rebooking her to watch my dog again.”
“Tamiya did a superb job with our dog and cat while we were away. Our dog is particularly anxious around new people, and Tamiya was approached her with such calm patience that she was able to relax and even warm up to her. We are so thankful to have found Tamiya! Cannot recommend strongly enough.”
“Nathan took such good care of my 16 year old Stella pup while I was away for 5 days. I got plenty of updates and photos, and felt totally comfortable trusting him in my home. Will ask Nathan to watch Stella whenever I'm away.”
“Absolutely fantastic dog sitter! Our pup was treated like family, receiving top-notch care and attention. We'll definitely be using their services again.”
“Y’all!! Do yourself a favor and hire Mollie!! She gave me multiple updates and photos everyday about my pup and took amazing care of him post neutering surgery. I came back to a spotless house and a happy dog! I had zero concerns about my pup the entire time and am so thankful for her!”
“Adam was great. He worked with me to find a time to meet my pup before I left town, gave me tons of updates and photos so I knew how things were going and worked diligently to make my nervous dog comfortable. He takes his work seriously and I’d totally use Adam again if the need arises! Thanks Adam!”
About: Thank you for your interest in having me as your pet's caretaker! My name is Yaen (Yah-En), and I am currently a PhD student originally from the Los Angeles area. I’ve grown up taking care of family chickens/hamsters/fish, and have always wanted a dog (unfortunately my parents were always against this idea 😅). I have previous formal experience caring for humans: as a teacher for two summers, and as a Resident Assistant in college. I never got the chance to take care of my own dog/cat growing up and have been dog/cat sitting informally for friends since college. Nonetheless, I am no stranger to responsibility and caretaking, and am happy to do what you and your pet need for your ease of mind! Before committing to taking care of your dog/cat, I request an in-person meeting so that we are all on the same page and I can learn all about your pet. I work a hybrid, flexible schedule as a full-time grad student with the option to be fully remote. I can provide the attention and care needed for your pet due to my flexible schedule! I am clean and respectful in shared spaces. I love pets and would love to send you consistent updates and spend time playing with them 🥰
“Syreeta is like Mary Poppins for puppies. She took amazing care of our 5mo old puppy. She immediately connected, was warm, and helped our dog have an amazing day while we were away. We can’t wait to have her back!”
“Stacey was amazing with my dog! Sent pictures every day and updates. Was also super flexible and stayed a few extra hours when my flight was delayed. Stacey was very respectful of my home and left it cleaner than when she arrived!!”
“Gabby was great with Huck! She had a long day with him but followed all of our instructions, took him for walks and he was very happy. Will definitely book Gabby again!”
“Sophia is a very diligent, communicative, & thoughtful petsitter! I have 3 elderly pets with a variety of needs and Sophia recently watched them for us. I have a detailed document describing the care the pets need and it was obvious from our communications that she was very conscientious in reading and following our directions in detail. Would definitely invite her back in future! Thanks Sophia!”
“Lucy did a great job watching my dog, Poppy. She was communicative the whole time and followed all instructions. Lucy was able to manage my dog's separation anxiety and helped calm her down. I'd definitely trust Lucy to watch Poppy again.”
About: I've been housesitting and caring for pets most of my life. I am experienced and comfortable with working with all types of pets. I also volunteer with the SFSPCA to care for dogs. I'm learning how to train and deal with dogs that may have behavior challenges. Example of this includes dogs that are shy or RMJ (rambunctious, mouthy and jumps) or VP (Vocal, pulls on leash). I have a fairly flexible schedule right now. I can likely accommodate your needs. Please reach out to find out if we are a fit. Your pet is unique and has its own personality. I start out by getting to know your pet and your space and how he/she feels safe. My goal is to be a true caregiver while you are away so that your pet experiences as little stress as possible.
“Jessica was extremely professional and obviously experienced with dogs of all sorts. She was patient, calm, minded all care instructions, and I came home to a happy dog.”
“Zach is so wonderful! This is our third time with him caring for our pups. He is an amazing communicator, the pups always have the absolute best time and when we get home it looks like they’ve had such a blast! We are so grateful for Zach and his amazing care, diligent updates, fun adventures, and big heart. We never have to worry when Zach is watching our pups!”
“Mick was very communicative and great with our senior dog! She often has separation anxiety and needs a lot of walks + diaper, feeding by hand (or spatula), and pills with her dinner. Mick handled it all and she was super calm when we returned. Thank you!”

“Allie was wonderful. Very conscientious, responsive and great with our dog. She even sent a video. House was also spotless. Will definitely use her again”
