Ria is awesome! She knows dogs and she loves them with all her❤️. My dogs Taj and Ruby took to her instantly and she took such good care of them, and sent me photos to let me know they were having a great time. I highly recommend Ria!!!

Our car had the best of care. We got updates for every visit and pictures. He was given some playtime and love.

Ria B. was fantastic! So glad to have found her. Nellie loved her walk and now I don't have to worry anymore today. Thank you Thank you so much for helping me out. Such a pleasure to have you help me. I see she got a very good walk (lots of hills and is finally a little mellow).

Another member of the family

I've always had my own zoo at home, so it's only natural that I took care of other families' animals from a young age.

I volunteered as a dog-training assistant at the Marin Humane Society for a few years, worked at a dog company in San Francisco for six months (when I moved back to Sonoma County), and have several consistent clients that I've worked with for over 5 years.

I have experience caring for ...

What Ria would like to know about your dog

Any relevant details - health issues, behavioral issues/triggers, your personal preferences.

**Dogs I care for overnight in my own home must be friendly with other dogs, children, and male/female adults.**

***I have two dogs of my own, so I must be able to bring them with me when staying overnight at clients' homes. My partner, who also loves animals, also stays with me.***

I am willing to do simple medical injections, but am not currently a good fit for pets that need consistently-timed medical injections, as my schedule varies from day to day.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Special Needs Dog Experience
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise

Visits to dog parks, the beach, the river (when there's no toxic algae), walks around the neighborhood, hikes at various county and state parks, and occasional playtime at my house. I adjust my care (dog socialization vs. 1-on-1 playtime with a ball or frisbee vs. long walks, etc.) based on the pet's (and family's) preferences.
