Ruth was fantastic. She was available to accommodate a last minute request and my dog was very happy staying with her. I recommend her to other folks needing pet sitting services.

Ruth cared for our nervous and reactive Corgi at her family's home. She did a great job and took him on nice long walks. Ruth is an intelligent college student who is professional and is great at customer service and listening.

This was the first time Ruth stayed at our house to watch our puppy, Skipper. It appears everything went smoothly and we'd love to have her back!

Golden Acres Dog Retreat

Your dog will love spending time at our beautiful home in the country! With over 5 acres of seculsion, grassy fields for your dog to run, 2 fenced pastures, and a large porch in the sun Golden Acres Dog Retreat is the perfect place for your dog’s short or extended stay! I have over 15 years of experience with dogs and in the last 5 years I’ve watched over 200 dogs! I love ...

What Ruth would like to know about your dog

Please come to the meet and greet prepared to tell me answers to these questions. Also, If you could update your care instructions with any specific details (on Rover for your dog) that would be wonderful.

Here's a list of questions I usually ask at our meet and greets:)

What types of care will be needed for your dog? How much feed will be needed? What will you provide....(food, dog house, leash, etc)? What your dog's temperament is like, and what it likes from you? Where your dog sleeps? What your dog prefers to do during the day? Can it ride in the car? Is it ok off leash? Is it good with other dogs?

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise
Injected Medication Administration
Special Needs Dog Experience

When Ruth watches your pet

Walks:
I'll take your dog on a nice walk around your neighborhood. My walk time is usually 30-60 minutes every day, but can be shortened or lengthened as needed for your dog:)

Your dog's sleeping arrangement:
I usually let the dogs sleep in my bedroom on their own dog bed, but sometimes they sleep in our living room as well, or however your dog is used to sleeping should be great. But I don't allow dogs to sleep with me:) Sorry!

Time I'll spend with your dog:
I live and work at home 24/7 so I will always be here for your dog. I usually let the dogs out every hour or so, and make sure to spend plenty of time playing, and walking your dog as well:)

Rates: My rate is $50 a night or a day. The price is calculated based on 24 hours, not a night. So when you book a stay for one night and 2 days, you will be charged for 2 days. I hope that makes sense:)
