Our dog Ozzie immediately took to Ruth and her dog, Jake. Ruth is smart and reliable. We recommend her without reservation and plan to leave Ozzie with her again.

Ruth watched our dog Charlie at our house for 3 nights and did a great job! Charlie was well cared for and happy when I returned home, and she kept me updated with cute photos/videos. I will definitely book Ruth again to watch over both Charlie and the house when we travel next.

Ruth is a very conscientious dog sitter. She is proactive with communication and responsive to our messages. We could also tell she took good care of our dogs and our home while we were away.

I love dogs more than anything!

Having had dogs all my life, I am an experienced dog owner and certified dog lover. I love to be active and I currently take my dog (a very friendly 20 lb. Aussiedoodle named Jake) on long walks/runs and make sure he gets to the park 3-4 days a week. The dog park is my favorite place in the world. My dog Jake and I would love a pup companion during our playtime. I ...

What Ruth would like to know about your dog

No breed preferences, though I'd prefer dogs under 40 lb to stay at my place. I'd like to know about any restrictions in activity, fears, general temperament information, medications, dietary restrictions, etc. I'd also like to know whether your dog is ok with other dogs, as I can easily hand Jake off to a family member but I'd need to give them a heads up. He is very friendly though and would love the company of another pup.

When Ruth watches your pet

We'd go on walks around the neighborhood. I am near the Mississippi River and love to go down to Crosby Park to walk. There are also a bunch of great fenced dog parks nearby including the Minnehaha park, where I love to go. I have plenty of toys and chews at my place and my dog absolutely loves to play with other dogs as well.
