About Ruta

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello there, pet owners!
Let me introduce myself! My name is Ruta and I am crazy about animals! I just love and adore them :) Future Veterinary Technician. Back home, in Lithuania, my family and I have a big house and it is surrounded with all sorts of animals because we have a farm! We have FIVE dogs, three Shiba-Inu and two toy terrier, a cat as well and a parrot! Eleven sheep, a cow, a goat, chickens geese and more :) I know! So many animals :) Worked and played with all of them so I am not scared of anything or any type of situation.
I live in an apartment, with a private entrance, with my husband Darius, who is also a huge animal lover, so you can already guess how much LOVE your baby will get :) I have extensive experience with dogs off all sizes and breeds.
I'm an athletic and reliable girl who wishes to offer dog/cat services to any pet owner in such a busy city. My scheduling is very lenient, rates are negotiable, and I offer full service. I'm highly empathetic towards dogs and dog owners, and offer a personal approach towards the animals I care for.

So if you have ANY questions, feel free to ask and you will be answered ASAP!
See you soon :)

**While your baby stays with me:

- FUN - I live right by the beach so you can already imagine how much fun your pup will have! Long walks on the beach, boardwalk and of course in the parks!
- WALKS every 2-3 hours for 30-60min!
- EXERCICE - You need your pup to do some exercise? No problem! I'll just put on my running shoes and we are all set because I am a very active and fun person to be around!
- SLEEPING - anywhere in my house. If your pet is trained off furniture: blankets and dog bed will be provided! :)
- PICTURES/UPDATES - You will receive tons of pictures and videos of your baby during the stay directly to your phone, whether his sleeping, taking a bath, running or even on his potty break! I've got your back! :) It'll feel like your baby is actually right there by your side.
- LOVE - My home will be a loving, playful, caring, comfortable and safe home for your pet while you are away.

Perfection from start to finish. I was very skeptical about leaving my two crazy Bostons Abby and Winston with anyone. After visiting Ruta and her Husband Darius and seeing how much they love animals I felt a bit better about the entire situation. Then came the day I had to drop them off. Ruta made me feel calm and confident they were being left in good hands. Hours later I began receiving videos and photos of my two pups having fun and going for walks which set my nerves even more at ease. She constantly kept me updated and they always looked happy or exhausted from all the love and exercise Ruta Had been giving them. 5 Stars, A+ we will absolutely leave my two with them again..
Ruta was amazing! I had no idea how my puppy would do since it was his first time staying with a non-family member but I can honestly say that Ruta is his family now too. She was unbelievably kind, took him on walks every day, sent me photos and videos of him daily, and just overall, took such good care of him. There was not one problem that came up my entire trip. She made my vacation a true vacation, and I'm so very grateful for that.
Ruta did a fantastic job with Angel, we are looking to book with Ruta again shortly. I highly recommend Ruta to be your choice of a dog sitter, she is also great with sending pictures on a daily basis.
Ruta is great!
She graciously responded to a last minute request and was flexible with pick up and drop off times.
Most importantly, she was FABULOUS with my bully-boy Mercury (5 yrs old.) She did everything just the way he's used to at home, long walks and lots of cuddling, affection and family interaction ( he had fun playing with her young nephew and her husband.)
She kept us informed with lovely photos and even a video. This was my first experience with Dog Vacay and because of Ruta it will be my "go-to" resource when I have to leave my fur baby somewhere.
Every pet parent be assured that Ruta is extremely experienced with all breeds and sizes of dogs.
She is a very caring person. Your dog will be treated wonderfully...and so will you!
Jasmine (my 9 year old pitbull diva) had an absolute awesome time with Ruta! I was concerned, having never left my baby with a dog sitter but after the first time meeting Ruta I knew I made the right choice. We were sent pics and videos daily of Jasmine on the beach, in the park and even after a bath!! I will ABSOLUTELY use Ruta again and ABSOLUTELY refer her services!!
Ruta was very active and attentive with my little one. She made sure to keep me updated by sending photos and video of him. I felt very comfortable and worry free when he was with her. I will definitely book her again to watch my little one!
