About Ria

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Since becoming a pet parent I have learned that our furry little family members are just like children, they require proper care and special attention in order to live happy lives. For this reason I provide a warm and friendly atmosphere that will help your special pup feel like part of the pack! While in my home or at yours, my main concern is to help your dog feel welcomed and loved when you're away. When my daughter and I first adopted our Havanese “Korky”, she suffered greatly from separation anxiety. It was a challenge to overcome this issue, but we worked with her day and night to help her feel safe and secure. She eventually understood that she is a part of our family and no harm will come to her while we we’re away. We include her in all of our family activates and I will do the same for the little member of your family.
Depending on your dog’s energy level, our walks will include a stroll to the Lakemont Community Park or around the Lakemont neighborhood. While on walks we encounter and play with other furry friends, sniff bushes and flower beds or try our luck at catching squirrels. Once our walk is over we come home
to a fresh bowl of clean water, a hearty meal and lots of toys to keep us busy.
Also, I make homemade dog food and treats made with whole human-grade food. With your kind permission I will share these treats (my Turkey bacon bites are Korky's favorite) and dishes with your dog after our walk.
I have over 3 years of experience sitting and walking dogs for neighbors, family members and friends. They have grown to trust in me with their pet and I hope you will do the same. I look forward to meeting you and your loved one.

Ria was extremely professional. I instantly felt comfortable leaving my dog with her. She updated me with pictures and that made me feel very much at ease. I will definitely be working with her in the future.
The reservation process was quick and easy. Ria is very prompt in her response to my questions. She's helpful and very accommodating.
Ria was flexible and accommodating. Also I can see that my dog liked her and her family. Ria also sent me messages throughout the stay to update me how he did with the first stay with Ria. I am definitely booking next stay with her.
Ria was very professional and friendly! Two thumbs up!
I am very happy we found Ria, our dog Sushi was very happy when we picked her up and was socializing with other dogs thing she did not do before. I am sure Ria took very good care of her. I will use Ria again in December to take care of Sushi.
Ria is super-friendly and flexible. She helped us to take care of our dog for 3 weeks and our dog pretty happy.
Ria was a great choice for our dog! She was very accommodating when our return home was delayed.
Ria was awesome! Took great care of our dog. She was helpful, friendly, flexible and easy to work with. We needed to add an extra day and it was no problem. I HIGHLY recommend Ria for DogVacay!
Ria was awesome! We have a puppy who cannot yet visit public dog parks or heavily occupied animal areas. Ria watched her for almost a week while we were in Maui and she took as great of care of her as we would have. We will be coming to Ria again.
Braxton had a great stay with Ria! He was happy and well taken care of while he stayed there.
We called very last minute, Ria was our last call on dog vacay, we called all the reputable big branded stores ( challenge was we had all his papers, but, they're terminology on vaccines wasnt up to standard, we crossed the USA with his updated vaccines they knew the terminology) Ria responded with a sounding YES, we met at her house we booked she took the large dog for some hours. I recommend her highly, give her a call.
Thanks Ria for taking care of our dog. Thank you for the picture you sent during his stay at your place that was very thoughtful of you. She was available and was there when we tried to reach her. She was very responsive and caring.
I was very pleased with my experience with Ria. She did a wonderful job with my dog and made him feel at home. She understands dog psychology and was able to read my dog's behavior and tell what it meant. I worry about leaving my dog behind but I felt comfortable leaving him in Ria's good hands. I would recommend her to a friend and will be going back to her again. Thank you for taking such good care of my best friend!
It was our first time to use dogvacay. We were a bit hesitant. Ria made it so easy. After meeting her, we knew our pup would be well taken care of. Simba came home happy.
