About Raluca

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
When I look around I see many people that are true animal lovers and that makes me really happy. I just can`t imagine my life without furry friends next to me. Why I love dogs so much?....because a dog`s soul is so pure, he will be loyal no matter what, he doesn`t care if you`re rich or poor, old or young, and he will never lie to you ( dogs are constantly communicating with us through body language, so either a dog is happy, fearful, excited, unsure, alert, etc. he will always show you through his body language how he is feeling)

Currently, I have one little Yorkie which is my best friend and I enjoy his company every day, but we will be glad to have new friends joining us. I will provide for your doggie the walks and the exercise that he needs, especially for hyperactive ones. I don`t work, I`m most of the time home, so I have plenty of time to share with your doggie. We often go to Tanglewood park, and after a good walk, we also stop at the doggie park. In weekends, if we have a good weather we enjoy going on hikes around the area, at Salem Lake, Hanging Rock State park, or Pilot Mountain.

I have lots of knowledge about dog behavior and dog psychology, so if you are concerned about your doggie`s behavior, I will try to work with his during his stay and share with you some tips and tricks that could help you.

I will also consider dogs that are not very comfortable around other dogs.
If you have any questions don`t hesitate to contact me.

Raluca is incredibly educated with how to train puppies and ensure they properly behave. She gave me some great advice within minutes of meeting her. While my 4 month lab/beagle puppy was there, she sent pictures of him playing, sleeping and having fun which I really enjoyed! When I picked him up, he was incredibly happy and both Raluca and her husband were so nice and enjoyable!

I can't say enough good things about Raluca! She treated my puppy like she was her own and gave me updates everyday! I have never felt more comfortable leaving my dog at someone else's home! We will definitely be taking our dog back!
We got lots of picture updates, which I loved! It was great that we were able to do a meet and greet befor the vaycay. I think our dog had a great time playing with other guests!
My dog, Bobby, is a little shy, and Raluca helped him feel right at home and become comfortable with his new friends. She creates a calm, warm, loving space for all the doggies, and Bobby was calm and happy when I picked him up after I'd been gone for a week. I really appreciated how Raluca sent me pictures of him every day when I was away, which gave me great peace of mind. I also appreciate how Raluca has educated herself about dog psychology and training, and teaches them good habits... like how to walk on a leash without pulling. I've already asked Raluca to petsit him again for two more, week long trips that I have coming up in December. I'm so glad that I found her!

Responded very quickly. She did a last minute request for the exact doggie daycare hours I needed. She even sent pictures and an update. Awesome!
Raluca took amazing care of our two dogs! Admittedly, we didn't have the best experience with dog boarding in the past so we were very reluctant to try it again. However Raluca restored faith in us that finding the perfect dog sitter does exist! One of the things that first caught our eye was that she didn't take a ton of dogs, assuring that our pets would gets lots of love and attention. She walked our dogs daily, sent a bunch of photos and it was apparently obvious that our dogs had a blast with the other dogs. It meant a lot that she was able to walk our dogs and share with us some techniques to try! We don't like to leave our littles ones often but we will definitely use her again in the future.

Raluca was great. Our pups came home happy. I will definitely use her again.
Reluca was awesome! She met with our yorkie before his stay and was very helpful teaching us behavior and obedience practices. She is very nice and flexible. Send daily pics of your pup which is fun to see! Loved the fact that she has her own yorkie for our pup to play with! Will definitely use Reluca again in the future!

Raluca was great with Gracie. She met with us prior to our reservation to make sure it would be a good fit. She gave me tips on some behavior issues. When she set she sent me pictures throughout the stay with updates on how she was doing. It was a burden off my shoulders not to have to worry about Gracie. A home place with personal attention by far out weighs the kennel stays.

Raluca was simply amazing. She sent us pictures every morning of Codi. She also worked on a lot of Codi's behavior issues while she stayed with her. Raluca even took the extra time to takes us on a walk when we came to pick up Codi to teach us, as new dog parents, techniques to continue improving Codi's behavior. Codi was like a completely different dog when we picked her up.

Raluca was great with my pup. I was able to drop him off early in the morning and my wife picked him up. I received updates throughout the day, and it was nice to have that. Thanks, Raluca.
I had an amazing experience with Raluca! Kept me in the loop throughout my dog's stay, and gave me a ton of great tips for training. Highly recommended.
Raluca took great care of my fur baby! She kept me posted on her activities and seemed to really be attentive. Will definitely use her again!
Raluca was great with Taco my very energetic 7 months old Cocker Spaniel. He was not potty trained and I was not trained to control him. She took a very good care of him and did an amazing job over the weekend. When I went to pick him up he was another dog, well behaved and following my lead. Now I can walk with him not letting him push me all around. She gave me great tips and hopefully I will be able to keep working with him.

Excellent! We have only had our dog for three weeks so we were a little nervous. Raluca put our minds at ease and offered several useful tips for dealing with our new dog. She sent updates and pictures! Lots of attention!
Thank you, Raluca, for taking such good care of manola! We know she was in good hands. Raluca sent us pics and updates via text which was pawesome! We will definitely be using her again for our future needs!
I had a last minute emergency and needed somewhere for my pomapoo Isabella, and came across Raluca on dog vacay. She was wonderful! I got pictures and updates on how Bella was doing, daily. She really gave my dog the attention and love that I was hoping for. Raluca and her husband were great with Bella. It shocked me how well Bella got along with the other dogs that were there at the time. Raluca is very smart when it comes to animals, and loves them all like they were her own. I would recommend her to anybody who wants a true vacation for their dog. It was like Bella was at home.. got to lay on the sofa (she is a spoiled little girl) and play all day long. I know she had a great time!!! I appreciate you and your husband for making this experience AMAZING for myself as well as Bella. Definitely, 5 stars! Thank you guys so much.

Raluca was absolutely great!

I ended up having some major travel/flight problems during Boone's stay with her and wasn't able to get back for an entire day after I had booked his stay and she was so nice and friendly about everything! She accommodated us in our travel mess which I was so thankful for! Boone (my dog) seemed like he had a great time there and was very happy! I would definitely recommend her and will book with her again in the future if I need a sitter! :)

My Chloe had a good visit with Raluca. It was clear that she knows animal behavior, and I appreciate that she took time getting to know Chloe's personality. She sent me a text with pictures almost every day and stayed in close contact.
I would trust her to watch Chloe again anytime.
