About Ruth

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a 28 year old law student who loves animals. I have one to two classes per day, but I live very close to campus so coming home between classes to check in and walk your pets isn't a problem.

I'm a South Florida native that has spent plenty of time in the rain (and snow from time spent with family in Pittsburgh); I have no problem braving the weather to take your pet for potty breaks outside. I live alone, so if your pet doesn't do well with lots of people or other pets my apartment is the perfect place. If your pet loves people and other animals I live in a great neighborhood perfect for walks and socializing outside. My apartment building is pet friendly, with an elevator (good for older pets that may not handle stairs well).

If you have two dogs (or cats) that need sitting I will be happy to care for them as they are comfortable with each other already. I will offer a discounted rate for multiple pets from the same household. Pets are allowed on the furniture if you allow that in your home. You are free to bring any crates or beds that your dog feels comfortable with.

I have owned many pets over the years and have also cared for the pets of friends and family members. I'm pretty easy going and loving, your fur babies will be in great hands.

*If you are unable to pick up your pet by 10:00 am on the final day of their stay, please keep in mind there will be a $15 late fee. Pickup after 4:00pm will be charged $20.*
*Holiday stay rates are increased by $10/night due to high demand*

Ruth is a doll and I wouldn't hesitate to leave my own dog with her for a vacay! Her apartment is well located, dog-friendly and impeccably orderly for someone in law school. Because she doesn't have a dog, your pet would get her undivided attention and bask in her effervescent glow.

Ruth has lots of experience with dogs, having volunteered in the past with PAWS. She enjoys long walks and, though a southerner by birth, she is not averse to our cold and messy winter weather. The outdoor space by the building is well equipped for dog owners-- it even has multiple "doggie bag" stations! Clearly a dog-friendly place.

Ruth told me that there are lots of dogs in the building, but she has never heard one barking. I'm sure that is due to the building's thick walls and insulation. A plus is that she is located on the top floor, so there is no noise from above to bother or distract your pet.

Ruth is engaging, fun and promises to be a wonderful host to any visiting pet. She gets the total thumb's up from me!

Ruth is great. Highly recommend her. Will use her again at the next opportunity.
great experience
Shadow and Josie didn't even miss us! Ruth cared for them as if they were her own fur children! Have already reserved Ruth for another vacay!
