About Rhody

37 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a family of 5! Mom and dad, two girls ages 7 and 10 and our lively Maltipoo, Fozzy. As a family, we have owned a dog since our children were first born. Our first dog was a pitbull/rhodesian ridgeback/rotty mix who died of old age. He was a rescue dog that was to be put down due to his lack of social skills and aggressive nature. Within 2 months time, we had taught him how to shake hands, turn the switch lights off and close doors in the house. He quickly adjusted to his new life and was extremely protective of his sisters. When he passed, my oldest daughter begged for another dog so we purchased a Staffy. He was the cutest, friendliest puppy! Sadly, someone kidnapped him from us after being tied up outside a local store on our walk home from the dog park. We learned our lesson and needless to say, have never left our doggy (or any other) unattended for any reason. Our newest addition, Fozzy, was a Christmas gift from Santa 2 years ago. He is very energetic and loves, loves, loves to go on walks and chase his sisters, so weather permitting, we are very active outside.

My husband is also a part-time professional dog walker and has become a canine chef, making all-natural dog treats. Fozzy's food is homemade, consisting of all-natural and organic rice, grains and veggies. Treats consist of dehydrated all-natural chicken (no extra additives, hormones or preservatives), sweet potatoes baked in a pinch of coconut oil and a light sprinkle of cinnamon, "peanut butter and banana oat cookies", etc.

We do have a medium-sized private yard but Fozzy is never left unattended. I prefer to work outside when feasible and Fozzy is always happy to get a tan! My husband and I work from home so constant attention and love is abundant. We also understand some furbabies take some time to adjust to their new surroundings so we have multiple dog gates, as well as a crate for Fozzy and will ensure all furbabies are well-adjusted before integrating them. We also understand not all furbabies are as active as Fozzy, so we are happy to accommodate ourselves to the schedule you have already created.

More about Fozzy - he is a 2-yr-old house-trained Maltipoo. He isn't food or toy-aggressive and enjoys the company of other dogs. He loves walks and being outdoors just as much as he loves snuggling and cuddling. We take him with us to any and all family/outdoor activities where dogs are permissible. He is a constant with us and we have used Dogvacay ourselves for instances when Fozzy is unable to travel. We do not use shock/pinch collars or any other such type of enforcement.. We are well-versed in working with multiple dogs and training.

Needless to say, our family loves dogs. Your furbaby will definitely be loved and well-fed and treated like part of the Easter family!

I appreciate the fact that Rhody and her family always have availability for my dog. They love him and they ensure that he is thoroughly exercised as when he returns he sleeps solidly for several days. I love the care that she and her family provide to Littles.
Rhody and her family are AMAZING caregivers to my fur baby! She sends photos and text messages go let me know how he's doing and when he gets home he's thoroughly exhausted. She and her family love my dog as much (or more) than I do! I will pay whatever she charges for him to stay with her family!!!
Would definitely leave my dog with Rhody again. Rhody provided lots of updates and took great care of her.
Rhody is a Jersey City Jem!
Luna stayed with Rhody and her family for 9 days and I was so nervous about her not eating or settling in but with daily updates and quick responses to my suggestions and questions she put my mind at ease and Luna adapted very quickly.
We arranged a meet and greet and I could see how relaxed their exchange was.
Luna was loved on by her adorable kids and I could see they kept her nice and tired.
This Site is such a great concept. Thank you guys!
Round two of the Sheba Show. Rhody is awesome her family pays great attention to Sheba and Sheba is trying to steal her husband lol. No on the serious note I have no anxiety about leaving my grandbaby with this fine family and would recommend her to anyone that has a dog. She sends pics and messages throughout the day just to let you know everything is A ok. Will definitely use Rhody again and again.
Rhody was so warm and friendly and up soooooo early. Rhody sent messages and pictures to assure my Sheba was ok. Sheba had a blast and my daughter and I will definitely use Rhody again. Thanks for being awesome Rhody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rhody took excellent care of my pit-mix, Maggie! She sent me pictures all weekend and was quick to respond every time I checked in to see how things were going. Maggie was sad to come home because she had such a good time with Rhody and her family.
Rhody is amazing...I wish I could give her 10 stars! I really feel that Rhody and her girls treated my dog like he was a part of their family. The messages I received from Rhody while I was away made my day, every day. My dog lives a pretty privileged life (much better than my own really) and I still almost felt guilty taking him back from Rhody. She really went above and beyond in the level of care that she provided. My know my pup misses them and I look forward to bringing him back!
My babies had a great time! Rhody and daughters gave my two dogs lots of love and attention. I also received updates and pictures. I can trust them and know my two boys will be in good hands. I will definitely book again. Thank you xoxo
Rhody and her family were great. My dog Toby was well taken care - and went to the park several times while I was away.
I was happy to receive daily photo updates seeing Toby happy and making friends.
I definitely recommend, and I hope to rebook next time I go out of town.
Rhody was really great with my dog Milo!! He can be shy around strangers but Rhody and her family welcomed Milo and he just followed along with no issues!! Will be using this family again! Thanks Rhody!!
Rhody and her family provided exactly the experience we were looking for for our pup while we were on vacation. Kids to play with, trips to the dog park, and lots of pictures. We will definitely work with Rhody again.
Rhody and her family were great with Maddie and Mason. We got updates everyday. Her daughters were awesome with our 2 dogs. We loved the fact that they were patient with Maddie who's a little on the hyper side. We would highly recommend them !!
The overall experience was great! Rhody gave daily updates on Ludo's well-being. Ludo received lots of love from the entire family!

Moreover, Ludo was returned to me exhausted. As the saying goes "a tired dog is a happy dog."

I highly recommend Rhody and her family to anyone looking to board their dog(s). I will definitely be using her services again.
Great experience, flexible, prompt, friendly. Will return!
Great experience, flexible, friendly, prompt responses. My dog didn't want to leave! Will rebook!
Excellent dog sitter! First time I left my dog with Rhody. She was excellent at tacking care of my Golden Retriever. I used her for day care service for four days since my dog walker couldn't make it. I am booking my next stay with Rhody for my next vacation.
Got pictures of my pup daily! Rhodybwas excellent at answering back and making me feel comfortable with being away from Big!
Rhody and her family took such great care of Littles! I never worried about him at all! She sent me photos of them walking and of him snuggling with her while she worked on her laptop! She loved my dog as she loves her own and he will visit with her less than a week later!
