“Recommendations from friends are a must when it comes to a sitter for my kids. UrbanSitter has expanded our network of babysitters, and it has given us peace of mind.”
Matt K., dad of two
“Finding a good dog sitter near me was really hard until I tried UrbanSitter. It was easy to use, and I found someone I liked quickly. My dog took to them, so I highly recommend it!”
Katerina L., dog mom
“UrbanSitter is my go-to for quality sitters! I can book weeks ahead of time or easily find a same day sitter when in a bind. I even hired a part-time nanny during a day care transition. Customer service is helpful and the baby sitters respond in a timely manner.”
Laura F., mom of two
