About Ruby

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a 23 year old recent graduate who has always had a dog in my family (or a few to be honest). I love animals and I can't imagine growing up without one. I recently moved to CA from PA and it kills me that I had to leave my family pets at home. I currently work from my house in East Village and recently picked up a part time job in the mornings 4 days a week. I love to go on hikes, walks, play frisbee, swim, go to dog parks, etc. Pretty much anything and everything outdoors. My house is small with a shared fenced in turf yard, patio, and porch, but I imagine your dog and I will be spending a lot of time outdoors exploring if we can! San Diego is a very pet friendly city! I would love the chance to meet your pup and you can help me fill the void I feel now that I'm pet-less. I look forward to meeting you and your dog!

Ruby was fantastic--we highly recommend her as DogVacay host). We were first time Dog Vacay users and Ruby was both professional and lovely to interact with. She came by to meet our dog Caribou a few days before her stay, was excellent at communicating with us (including pictures!) and we could tell that 'Bou had a lovely time with her. Ruby also gave us some great advice about getting Caribou a harness, and her suggestion has made walks with 'Bou even better.

10/10 likely to book again!
Ruby was excellent. Really took care of my pup, couldn't be happier.
Ruby was great. I'll definitely use her again. Our dog loved her, she's really nice and she worked with our timeline for the trip we were taking. Thanks!
Ruby was very responsive and my pup came home happy and healthy.
Penny had a great vacay with Ruby, who was kind and helpful in arranging pick-ups for this out-of-towner. Thanks!
Ruby was awesome! Our little 6 month old Morkie was comfortable with her from the first time they met. Ruby knew how to make my puppy feel at home and also made sure to keep me posted with lots of pictures, which I loved. Will definitely use her again!
Charlie was so happy after his vacation with Ruby! I was kept in the loop with photos and got a full report when I returned home. I knew Charlie had been well taken care of when he started whining as we left Ruby's house! We will definitely use Ruby again!
A five star experience. Ruby was an excellent host and was noticeably good with dogs. I would highly recommend her, and would board Belle with her again in a heartbeat!
Ruby was great. We did not make it easy on her with last minute schedule changes and drop-off requests, but she was very accommodating.
Ruby was great with the pups! We were in a pinch and needed someone to watch them with little notice and thankfully we got Ruby. Gave us frequent updates and pictures to make the distance feel smaller. :-)
Ruby was great. She took care of my six month Siberian Husky, who by the way was wearing a cup as he was recovering from his neutering, and she did a great job. Ruby was flexible with my schedule and updated me throughout the day when she took him out on walks. She event sent me an adorable picture of him!
Koufax loved his time with Ruby! He was a pooped pup when I picked him up. Signs of a great time! Thank you Ruby for taking awesome care of Koufax!
Pawsome for sure.
Ruby was great! Did everything requested and sent photos of our dog while we were away!
Ruby was excellent! She stayed at our house, and we had nothing to worry about. Our dog was happy, healthy, and missed Ruby when we got home! We would recommend Ruby without hesitation, and will hire her again when we go out of town.
Ruby was awesome with my "3rd child".... Dixie. Ruby went above and beyond normal dog care. Dixie got to go to parks, and rides in the car with Ruby. I felt very comfortable leaving Dixie with Ruby, and will defiantly use her again!
Ruby was amazing! I really appreciated how well she communicated with me both beforehand and while we were away, and Apollo seemed to love her. I knew she was a good match when Apollo liked her right away, a shock since he is usually very wary of strangers! I would definitely use Ruby again and recommend her to anyone in need of a dog sitter!
This was our 1st time using a DogVacay sitter, & we had been anxious about how our furry baby, Dusty would do away from us & in unfamiliar surroundings. In the past we had used kennel type of boarding for him, at his Vet's clinic, but there he was pretty much caged the entire time with very little human contact. He had developed anxiety issues from his stays there, & we just didn't want him to be caged like that, so we were very excited to have discovered DogVacay. We left Dusty with Ruby for a week, & she updated us frequently with photos & texts, which was much appreciated. Dusty looked happy in all the photos, & appeared to have been very well taken care of when we picked him up. Ruby suited our needs & Dusty seemed to really like her. We are already planning another vacation with her, and there is nothing better than being able to rest assured that our boy will also have a good time while away from us. It just makes our vacation that much more enjoyable knowing he will get lots of interaction, attention & affection from someone both Dusty & we can trust.
Ruby was great. Answered to the needs of my older grumpy little pup and helped with transporting him where ever I needed. I'm in Italy orchestrating getting my dogs to me and she was very patient with my last minute slip ups in getting things in order; including a last minute extended stay. I can't thank you enough, Ruby.
Felt VERY comfortable leaving our family member with Ruby. She went above and beyond to make sure his vacay was a great one. Duke says "woof"
Ruby was great! Kept me informed and sent some cute pics! All my animals we well taken care of. I would definitely use her again!
This is the second time that my dog stayed with Ruby while our family was out of town and I can't recommend her enough! We got updates on our dog and whenever I texted Ruby she replied right back. My dog loves going to her house and we feel good knowing he's getting the same type of love we give him at home.
Ruby accommodated my needs for my dog's first "vacay" perfectly. My neurotic chihuahua was in great hands!
Ruby was amazing in every way! Our dog had surgery hours before Ruby was to start her care for our dog. Ruby handled and cared for our pup like a champ! Thank you so much!
This was a great fit, and experience, I will have Ruby take care of my dog again. Thanks Ruby
Ruby was great! She was able to accommodate our doggie at the last minute and gave her lots of love and a good workout (a tired dog is a good dog). Highly recommended !
Ruby is great! My friend was supposed to watch Jasper over Thanksgiving, but got called to work for a few days last minute. Ruby responded quickly to my request, and even offered to house-sit since we live in the same apartment complex! I got daily updates, and she was very flexible with her schedule. I felt better knowing my pets were in good hands while I was away. I will definitely be bringing Jasper back to Ruby in the future.
Ruby was great! She was able to accommodate for Midget's medical situation. Great communication prior to and during his stay. We enjoyed the daily texts with photos and updates. Midget had a great time there =)
Ruby was a true delight to work with; communication was immediate, daily up dates, the knowledge of our dogs well cared for with pictures showing they were enjoying their doggie vacay. Our dogs have a new best buddy.
