Rita was wonderful! She took great care of our two pups and our home through the August stormy/wet weather week. She was very communicative and sent me pictures of my fur babies. She left our spare room with clean sheets and towels - just like we left it for her. I highly recommend her. Once you meet her you will know instantly that you're in good hands.

She is amazing. She ended up having to buy food because I miscalculated and cooked it so I didn't have to come home to work. She kept in contact as needed. The animals were happy.

Rita was fantastic! It was well worth it to have her stay with us to dog sit for Sadie and Buddy. The freezer went out and she was there for the repairman to come and try to fix it. Came home to a tidy house and happy dogs! Would highly recommend Rita!

What Rita would like to know about your dog

It is important that I know as much about your Pup's Personality as possible. That way I can give them the best care possible if I am able to anticipate any issues that might arise during our stay together.
