About Rita

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We love dogs here at Sunshine In-Home Boarding and would love to care for your dog while you are away! We have 2 beautiful friendly dogs in our home and we have no cats or small animals! We have a large locked fenced in yard and the dogs are free to run and play there while being attended. We are available for nightly weekly or monthly sitting. We have 3 gated areas inside the main areas of our home in case they are needed. Your dog will be free to roam in our home and will never be kept in a crate unless you require one. We have acquired repeat customers by providing top notch loving care for all dogs who stay here. If you are looking for someone that you can trust to love your dog as much as we love our own- then we are the family! We will give you as many photo/video updates as possible. Please make sure your dog is flea free please!

I would like to say that Rita and family treated Coco as one of their own. I could tell he was well cared for during his 3 night stay. Coco now has a new home to visit when I have to go out of town. I will not hesitate in calling on Rita again ... wonderful family environment .....
Cooper loves Rita and Sunshine Dog Boarding. Love the flexibility in drop off and pick up times. Wonderful alternative to a dog kennel.
Rita and her family are amazing! Gracie, our lab, gets so excited when she has a sleepover planned with Rita! She treats Gracie like her own and we have had nothing but awesome service with her. We've been using Rita for almost a year now- we are stress free when we are out of town knowing our fur baby is in great hands.
Rita was an excellent host. The process was easy and communication was good. Guinness was well cared for and had a great time. We will definitely be using Rita again!
Great people! Made us feel comfortable and confident that they knew how to board pets. They did a great job and will do what it takes to make your pet feel relaxed and at home. We will be using them again just one week later.
Had a great experience with Rita. What a life saver this was. Would have had to cancel my trip had I not found Dogvacay.
left our Zoey with Rita over Thanksgiving weekend. Zoey seemed happy to have been with Rita and her family rather than stuck in a kennel somewhere. Rita took very good care of her and we would do it again without hesitation.
It was great for Rita to take on my pup Thanksgiving weekend. He had a great time & was wore out when we got him back. Thanks, again!
My pup had an awesome sleepover. Rita definitely went out of her way for her. Will definitely be using them again
Wavy loved his stay we will definitely be back !!
I definitely recommend Rita! Her whole family was great with Chopper! I got lots of messages and pictures. It looked like he really enjoyed himself! They even kept him safe during Hurricane Matthew!! I will take Chopper there from now on instead of boarding him!
I was very impressed when I went to the meet and greet. So I felt comfortable leaving my Summer and Susie in Rita's care. She answered my messages and sent pictures. Was funny Susie started her whimpering in the car . She was sad she was leaving. Summer was wore out .She slept the first 2 days we were home. Yes I will leave them at Ritas again. Thanks
Rita and family were awesome with my two babies. They had a great time and she truly loves dogs and has a lovely home to accommodate them. She even gave one a hair trim. I will definitely use her again. My dogs now have their new Dogvacay home.
Rita and her family are amazing! We don't trust anyone else with our furbabies while we are away. Highly recommend Rita & we will be repeat customers.
I didn't personally meet Rita but my 25 year old son did and he was extremely satisfied with the care that Marley received. Marley was sporting a bandanna when she was picked up that Rita had attached to her collar which was very sweet of her to do that. We were on vacation in California and Rita sent us pictures of Marley and messages letting us know how she was doing. We will definitely want to leave Marley with Rita in the future should the need arise.
Highly recommend taking your dog to her if possible. She took great care of our puppy for a week. Went to pick him up and he wated to stay. Will take our dogs there again for sure
Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!
I felt like our dog Grace was well loved and got lots of playtime while we were on a short vacation. We would definitely come back.
Rita her husband and children were really nice and welcoming to there home. I will plan to use her service in the future and recommend any friend,family or anyone that is in need of dog services near Myrtle Beach. It was truly a pleasure.
Rita is awesome, so accommodating. Ladybug absolutely loves going to stay! I wouldn't use anyone else.
Rita was so great with Gizzy that he didn't seem to mind when I left him and wasn't very excited to see me when I picked him up to carry him home. Thank you Rita!!!!
