We had Ruby stay at our house in Southie and watch our two dogs for a long weekend. She was incredibly professional and responsive. We would absolutely recommend Ruby to anyone who is in need of dog / house sitting. We are planning to have Ruby come back sometime soon! Thank you!!!

The Crate Escape: Cats & Dogs

I love that every pet has a distinct personality and I really enjoy getting to know all about them, their interests, their quirks, whatever makes their tail wag or makes them purr! I understand how difficult and confusing it can be for dogs and cats when their parents go away, so it's my priority to make them as comfortable and happy as possible. When an animal is in my care, it's important to me to ...

What Ruby would like to know about your dog

For Dogs: I like to have as much info about the dog as I can, breed and age is good to know, but what's really important to me is finding out how the dog is with strangers, do they have any triggers, if there's anything about their past I should know, such as if they are a rescue or have been abused in the past. This information helps me adjust my interaction with the dog so that they can be as comfortable as possible. I'll also ask about their regular routine so I can stick to it as closely as possible. This will make things feel more normal to your dog when you're gone and help their comfort level.
For cats: Knowing their age and breed is always good to know! It's important to me that I find out if your cat has any triggers, any quirks or unusual behavior that I should be aware of, as well as things your cat loves. I also always ask how your cat reacts to being picked up; in case there's any kind of emergency and I need to pick them up, it's good to know their comfort level with that.

When Ruby watches your pet

I love to go exploring on walks with my dog friends. Instead of a quick jaunt, I like to take an hour-long walk as that’s much more fun and it allows us to explore new parks or old classics, like the Emerald Necklace, Boston Common or Boston Gardens. There also are lots of nice biking trails I've found all over Boston that I'd love to explore with a furry friend! If your dog needs a lot of exercise, it’s not a problem at all and if your dog wants to play tug-of-war or fetch, I'm good for that too! As for cats, I've been able to get even the laziest of cats to exercise, we'll have plenty of playtime.
