About Ruth

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are family who has enjoyed dogs for many years. Ruth studied pre-vet (B.S. degree) and is comfortable giving dogs medication and will be able to know if your dog is feeling well. Our teenage sons help take care of our adopted dog (1 year old) who loves to play and has an easy going nature. Puppies who are not yet housebroken will be considered with additional $5 per night charge.

We have a nice yard in a quiet neighborhood where your dog can play with ours. We live a block from a park withaccess to bike and walking trails and a small woods where we usually walk our dog.

Our youngest family member is ten years old so there are no little ones to worry about. We have a cat who usually stays upstairs with a pet gate to keep the dogs out.

Everything was great. Their house is large and very nice. The fenced backyard is also very large. Ruth and family are very nice and I'm sure my dog had a great time while she was there! The text pics and updates were very appreciated.
Ruth and Ace really made my pups feel welcome in her home. They were both very happy on their return home and both were napping each evening from all of the fun and excitement! Ruth sent a picture each day of Koda and Kaila during the day which brought a smile to my face while I was busy at work. Ruth even accommodated my Samoyeds with a fan in the house to keep them comfortable which is their routine at home. I give Ruth 5 stars for "Pawsome!" They will back for more fun and TLC every Tuesday and Thursday!

Sadie had a great first day! Ruth kept me updated throughout the day and it was an all around a good experience.
Ruth was great--flexible with short notice booking and pick up time. She communicated frequently and sent pictures to ensure my baby was in good hands!
