About Rodina

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a full time housewife and would love to host your pet as I currently don't have my own. My husband has a day job and I would really love to have a pet to play with. We both walk your pet when my husband comes home from work or before our bedtime. We also love to play fetch or just cuddle while watching TV so your dog can have a goodnight sleep.

I love outdoors so I can walk them anytime and as much as you want. Our house is in front of The Arboretum and White Rock Lake.

I also have a large enclosed backyard if you wish your pet to just stay in the vicinity. I can open my back door so your dog can roam around in and out of the house. Or, if you just want them to stay inside and cuddle, that works too.

I only accept 1dog at a time or up to 3 dogs if they are of the same owner or are living together. I specialized in taking care of pets with health issues, special needs dogs or just wanted to be alone in my home.

Rodina is the best! She intuitively knows how to handle the dogs, what they want and how to take care of them when you're not around. I'm very picky but Jaba is coming back here for sure when I'm going to travel. Rodina is Jaba's home away from home from now on. He's found his second mommy. Woot woot! Wait a second - Should I be jealous???
Rodina is the best! She provides pictures and updates a few times per day so I could see how much fun the dogs were having. We will use her again! Great hostess for our fur babies!
Our 9 year old mini-schnauzer Aidan had a true dog vacation when he stayed with Dina. She gave him a ton of attention, played with him, practiced his tricks, and let him explore her fun backyard as much as he wanted. She sent us pics and videos of him relaxing and playing so we knew he was enjoying his vacation. We'll always use Dina anytime we have to leave town and can't take Aidan with us.
Rodina was great! My dogs obviously had a great time. Rodina is very nice. She sent pictures of the dogs throughout the day and she seemed happy to have them!
Rodina was a loving wonderful mom for our pup, Lincoln. We were put in a bind with a short trip to Minneapolis after only having Lincoln for 2-3 weeks. Rodina assuaged our worries and gave us constant updates with pictures and videos of Lincoln. Will admit that we spent most of our time on vacation looking forward to the updates! When we picked Lincoln up he was well-rested and even learned some new tricks like fetch and bring back.

I would recommend Rodina to anyone looking for a loving, caring home.
Rodina is an exceptional sitter. We had a work trip that was a week long and hated the idea of having Wilson boarded for that long. Rodina was a lifesaver. She sent daily pics and videos of Wilson which was greatly appreciated. Wilson was the only pet which allowed for him to get all the human interaction,snuggles and exercise he could handle. Her rate is reasonable and her response time is prompt. We look forward to having Wilson spend time with her in the future.
Rodina made us feel so comfortable. She was welcoming and excited to care for our puppy. She sent multiple pictures and videos daily to let us know how things were going. Our dog seemed reluctant to leave, and came home tired, happy and most importantly safe. I will recommend Rodina to family and friends as someone they can trust to take good care of their dog.
Rodina was awesome! She took great care of our dogs. Her house is a huge backyard, which my dogs loved (and the yard is securely fenced in, which key for me since one of my dogs is a Houdini-level escape artist). She sent a bunch of photos and updates while we were gone, took them on walks, and seemed to really enjoy having them. I would definitely use her again, and I'd rcommend her as a dog sitter without hesitation!
I had never left my 4 year old (very spoiled)Cockapoo, with anyone before, that wasn't family. Rodina and her husband were so sweet and reassuring from the moment I met them. They listened to my concerns and assured me he would have a wonderful stay. They sent us pics and videos of him getting adjusted and then all the fun they had together. When we picked him up, he was so tired from all the fun and play, he slept so well. They made me feel so safe and wanted to make sure my trip was relaxing knowing he was having a blast. I highly recommend them as pet sitters there house is pet friendly!! You could not ask for better care. We will definitely use Rodina again!!
Rodina is absolutely fantastic and comes highly recommended from this picky person! From the minute we met Rodina, we knew that our Lucy Belle would be in great hands! Rodina was caring and very attentive to the special needs of our pet. We loved that she kept us updated with lots of pictures and videos to let us know that Lucy Belle was doing well. The thing that made us most comfortable was that she never hesitated to clarify if she had questions about our pet's needs and was very responsive to communication. I would definitely recommend using Rodina for your pet needs in the future as I know I will!
Wow!!! Best dog sitters! When they say they'll take care of your fur babies, they actually mean it. Not only did they send me pics, I got videos sent daily so I didn't have to worry or wonder what was going on during their stay.

Rodina and her husband went above and beyond their duties and made sure that both fur babies were loved and well cared for during their whole stay. I've used another sitter and what I was told and what actually took place were two different things. My two fur babies have been traumatized more than once from being boarded at a facility and with another Dog Vacay sitter. I have to say this couple made all the difference and made this a positive experience.

I wdefinitely ine use them again and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a pet sitte
Rodina watched Scarlett for a night while we were in Dallas this past week, and she was outstanding! She sent several photo and video updates, and took great care of her. She was very quick to respond to my messages, and I would highly recommend her to watch your pups while you are away. Thank you Rodina!!
Rodina was fantastic! Our dog has some health issues and it was important to us to find someone who would take great care of her. We were so happy with Rodina and the care she gave our girl. She sent lots of updates and photos and we felt very confident that our dog was in good hands. We highly recommend her!
Rodina was a wonderful host! She took great care of my dog, Shiner and sent me lots of pictures and updates each day I was gone. I will definitely book her again. Thanks, Rodina!
