About Rukaya

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
First and foremost I am a dog lover! Cats are cool but I am a doggy gal. I love to see that wagging tail and excited face when I walk in the door. We all do! But sometimes I take a trip and I worry about the safety and security of my baby.

Still, I think pets should never feel abandon, neglected and left alone or with someone who does not know how to properly care from them. I have pet sat for various friends and family over the past 10 years. During your pe's stay, he/she is in loving caring hands and will be treated asa member of our family. While I could never replace your love or parenting style I would like to make sure I am pretty close.
That is why I require a a lot of information from pet owners. Be prepared for a 15- 20 minute conversation. :)

I am a spouse of a Air Force Veteran, a social worker and mother of three (including my hairy son Elmo). My family has had our dog for 9 years now he has traveled with us to various destination in the U.S . He enjoys playing fetch, running freely, snuggling up and lots of TLC. Yes, he is very spoiled.

What to expect:
Your dog will go on two walks a day. A brief meet and greet is required prior to pet sitting start date. I take the dogs to local dog parks to run around and play. Please bring any beds and toys for your dog to help him/her adjust to the new environment. I live in an townhouse , so I am able to care for large or giant dogs in my home. I only take one large or giant dog at a time .
The pets I sit are spoiled with walks, individual cuddling time and daily massages They sleep in our room unless you request otherwise .
I send photos as often as you prefer the average is 3 a day. If that's too much just let me know We have many repeat customers because we truly love them up! Check out our photo library to see our furry friends We'd love to add your pet to our wall of fur buddies!.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to caring for your pampered pooches :)

Kaya and her family were awesome. Their level of care, update text messages and photos -- all super helpful! My dog is older and takes medication twice a day. Her dog was also a really good host... I look forward to our next visit.
Thanks! Kiko's mom

Our coonhound rescue, Rosie, can have problems meeting new people, so we were anxious about having her stay with a new family. We should not have been worried! Rukaya and her family provided Rosie with an absolutely perfect home away from home, treating her to regular trips to the dog park and providing her with a cozy chair for naps. Rosie settled in right away and got along well with with the family's resident Yorkie. Rukaya sent us regular updates and photos and was incredibly accommodating when we requested an extra night's stay at the end of our trip. We could not be more thrilled with both the care that our sensitive girl received while we were away AND the responsiveness and kindness shown to us from the moment we first requested a meet-and-greet. Thank you, Rukaya!

This was an excellent experience for Wishbone. Rukaya and her family are true dog lovers who took great care of Wishbone. Highly recommend and will be using her in the future.
