Rita is awesome! She stayed with my boys, an energetic lab and a laid back corgi-chihuahua, for two nights. I came home to two happy, tired boys.

What Rita would like to know about your dog

What is the dog's temperament with people, children, and other dogs, on and off leash. Do they fetch, do they like to play ball? Are there any commands I should know about for continuity of their training (specific words and/or hand gestures)?

When Rita watches your pet

I like to take dogs on trails, to local parks, and safe spaces that have proper accessibility for both human and dog.
