This was the second time our little havanese maya stayed with Rita. Rita is great, she regularly sends updates and maya loves to stay and play with Rita's doggie Tucker. I highly recommend Rita!

Rita was FANTASTIC - she sent us tons of pictures and updates, and we couldn't have asked for a better sitter while we were out of the country! Highly, highly recommend

Thank you for taking great care of my precious baby Rocky. Your promped responses to every text and multiple pictures of my baby throughout the day made me feel that he was safe, secure and had a good time. You seemed very knowledgeable about dogs and their care. Next time I'm back in SF you will be the first person I call to watch my baby Rocky :)

A girl and her dog looking for buds

I'm a long time dog lover and owner based in Rincon Hill. I used to volunteer with a dog training program at a shelter in Toronto so have plenty of experience with different breeds. I have a 3 year old Havanese named tucker who absolutely LOVES other dogs. We'd love to have some additional dogs around over the weekends for playtime and adventures. I usually take the dogs out for long walks along the Embarcadero ...

What Rita would like to know about your dog

I'd love to know any routines or care instructions for your sweet pup in advance. Where do they like to sleep? Are there special toys or treats they prefer? How often and how much would you like me to feed them? How does he/she do with other dogs?

If possible, I'd love to schedule a meet and greet in advance to make sure the pups get along well.
