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!

Perfect person to watch your dog! She was great with my little yorkie! Definitely will be using her again!
We are very happy with the care that the dogs received. Daily pics were a nice touch. We will definitely be leaving them with Ruth again. :)
This was Callie's 9th stay with Ruth and Family! It is so great knowing our fur-baby is in caring hands. Callie had another great time and is simply bored here at home. Lol! Knowing that Callie is treated like one of their own in Ruth's home gives us peace of mind while out of town. We can't thank you enough Ruth!
