About Ruth

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband and I have owned and trained our own dogs for much of our adult lives. . We have been DogVacay hosts since August, 2013, and have totally enjoyed the experience. We are extremely pleased to have so many repeat customers, and are very proud of the number of positive reviews we have received. We are very appreciative that our customers take time from their busy l lives to say such kind things about their pups' stays with us!
Rufus, our 3 year old Lhasa Apso mix, loves to run and play and doesn't know how small he actually is, so he plays with even our largest guests, if they are willing! After our beloved 17 1/2 year old black lab crossed the Rainbow Bridge, we added Java, a one year old lab/beagle mix puppy, to our family. She has just 2 modes right now: PLAYING MADLY, and SOUND ASLEEP!
I am retired, after a long and wonderful career as a teacher, so I have a very flexible schedule for providing playtime, exercise and TLC for your beloved dog, along with ours!
We have a very spacious backyard, surrounded by a 5 ft. tall privacy fence, making it a perfect place for chasing tennis balls, playing tug, or playing in the sprinkler on a hot day. We would love to have your dog, large or small, stay with us while you travel. We will treat them as if they are our own, with plenty of play, attention and cuddling, while you are away!

We knew our two puppies were in excellent hands with Ruth! We loved all the pictures Ruth sent of them having fun while staying with her! Our baby girls will definitely be back for another visit!
We picked up Beau and Bella after their long, 4 week stay with Ruth. We only leave the dogs with her and knew they would be fine for that time because Ruth knows both dogs and really works with their different personalities and idiosyncrasies. They settled in quickly and enjoyed the dog and human friends they've made during other visits. I looked forward to the pictures and posts Ruth sent while I was traveling and knew what everyone was up to. On the way home, both dogs were happy to see us but fell asleep from all the fun and exercise they had on their own vacation with Ruth.
Once again, Leo had the best time with Ruth. In fact, he didn't want to leave when we picked him up. She has our highest recommendation! Thanks, Karen
