Best. Rover. Experience. Ever! We instantly fell in love with everything about Rita and her trusty little Westie named Duncan when we met for a meet and greet before the stay. Maxwell had the best stay and seemed to get along swimmingly with the canine guests and her family. We got daily messages letting us know how things were going. Total piece of mind from the moment we dropped him off. Recommend and look forward ...

Wish I would've found Rita sooner. She is truly an animal lover and took such great care of our 14 year old dog while we traveled over the holidays. Our dog became part of her family and it was so nice to get text messages and photos of our dog. Will definitely use Rita again.

Our pups stayed with Rita for a long weekend, and we couldn’t have been happier about the love and care they received! Rita was easy to work with and we would definitely book her again! Pics she sent were most appreciated!

When your dog stays with me they will get lots of attention. I love dogs, and Duncan is a very good host!! I'm a stay at home mom who will give them 24/7 supervision. I would walk your pet everyday, and keep there usual schedule going. My first priority would be to keep your pet safe. I would have daily contact with you with photos and texts. I have a 12 year old daughter ...

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.
