Rita is amazing! She was very accommodating when house sitting with our dogs. She gave them so much love and attention, they are so happy. I got regular updates and pics from Rita. She communicated without my having to ask. I felt 100% secure with her caring for my two dogs. She is an absolute pro at pet sitting. She loves animals and is the sweetest person I could have ever picked. I’m thrilled ...

I have left my dog Lola with Rita on many occasions. Rita has always cared for Lola as if she were her own. I could not be more grateful to have found someone as responsible and loving as Rita. Kindness and compassion are Rita's forte.

What Rita would like to know about your dog

I feel that it is very important for me to know your pets. Any small quirks and habits they may have will allow me to assess their behavior prior to taking care of them. I accept a small or medium size dog.
The only preference that I have is that they do not have an aggressive label due to their breed.

When Rita watches your pet

If your dog likes to take long walks I'm in!
Many of my clients enjoy the dog park but that is totally up to their owners.
Playing fetch is a fun activity if your pooch likes it.
I am energetic and love to keep my clients stimulated as it is easy for them to get bored.
I can assure you that I will give your dog lots of love and attention!
