I’ll treat your pet like it’s mine!

What Rita would like to know about your dog

I do not have any read preferences. I would like to know how the dog is with strangers, how long does the dog take typically to warm up to strangers, does the dog have a possibility of running off if he or she is not on a leash, what is the dog like around other dogs, people, children, and crowds. I would also like to know how the dog acts while riding in a car. I would also like to know any allergies, food preferences, and what the dogs daily routine consists of.

When Rita watches your pet

In terms of fun activities I would make sure to bring enough toys and things for the dog to play with and I would also take the advice of the owner to understand what the dog enjoys the most..
