Ruby took awesome care of our pup!
Ruby was fantastic to our two cats! She did drop-ins on a short notice when we really needed someone. We loved the attention to detail she gave to our little floofs, as well as the friendly and thoughtful updates. She even cleaned our rug when one of our kitties threw up on it! Ruby is the best. :-)
Ruby is so great with our cat! This is our fourth time booking Ruby. She always sends lots of pictures and spends extra time with Salem. He gets all the attention he needs while we’re gone :)
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.
