Our puppy's stay with Rita was great! She was willing to take on the challenges that come with a 10-week old puppy, giving us ease of mind when we had to go out of town. She has a great setup for her doggy visitors. We'll definitely be back.

When Rita watches your pet

We use the Minnetonka Trail which is very close to my home. I have a concrete sidewalk in front of my house, which connects to the trail. It is very safe. Your dog will always be on a leash and under my supervision.
