About Rita

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

I'm a California native and have been a dog lover ever since I was very young. I have experience with dogs of all shapes and sizes and love them all equally!

I am available for dog sitting at your place (my apartment doesn't allow pets. Boo... ) while you are on vacation. I am also available for cat sitting at your place.

Under my care, I will make sure to give your pup lots of snuggles, play time, long walks in dog friendly parks, and baths as needed.

Photos and text updates can be provided for you at no charge.

Please have your pet up to date with shots and flea/tick medication. I can administer oral medication, if needed.
Please let me know of any unusual sleep or other habits in your reservation request and Meet 'n Greet. (Thank you!!!)

If you have any questions feel free to message me.

Thank you for reading this, I can't wait to meet you and your pet!

Rita is awesome!!!!
Rita was lovely! She sent us pictures while we were away and we love that! Our dog , Lyla, was very well taken care of. We would book Rita to help us again in the future.
Rita is great! Our dogs took to her right away and she has a great calming and affectionate energy with them. We will definitely be calling on her again!
Rita was our first host for Dogvacay and we couldn't be happier about our choice!

We've had trouble getting our dog to socialize with other dogs but we received numerous videos and photos of Sheila meeting and greeting with other pups! We know she had a good time while we were away, and the peace of mind knowing she as well taken care of was worth it all! Sheila stayed with Rita, and I'm glad we chose that option as the dog park options seem far greater where Rita lives than where we live in Oakland.

Thank you Rita, and thanks Dogvacay! We'll be back :)
This was our first experience with dogvacay and our first time leaving Mac with someone we didn't know well. Rita was great! She sent regular updates with photos of Mac on walks and hikes. I didn't worry about him at all. Rita clearly loves dogs, and Mac clearly loves his stay with her. I highly recommend Rita!
Rita is wonderful with my aloof, sometimes diva-ish American Eskimo, Daja. She gave Daja a lot of attention and exercise while we were away and Daja completely warmed up to her. I feel totally comfortable leaving my dog with Rita and it was a huge relief to be able to leave Daja with someone I trust to take great care of my dog while we were away. You can tell Rita loves dogs and she treated Daja as if she were her own. Thanks Rita!
Rita has wathed Tessa, our high-energy medium-sized dog numerous times for many days at a time and she loves it. I believe she actually likes Rita better than us! Rita goes to the dog park often, takes her on multiple walks a day, and goes for weekend hikes in the regional parks - her energy matches Tessa's! It is obvious she loves animals and takes care of our pet like her own. Tessa gets loads of attention, baths if necessary, and goes on lots of advenuires with Rita. We have started planning trips around her availability. You simply won't find a better sitter.
We have used professional dogsitters in the past, but Rita by far has been our favorite, and the dogs feel the same too! We've never seen our dogs react with anyone else (including us!) the way they do when they see her: jumping up and down in excitement and whining with happiness.

Whenever we can book Rita, we can rest assured knowing that she'll be taking our dogs on the best adventures and giving them the attention and care they need.

She has a lot of experience caring for many types of dogs and knows how to handle situations as they arise. Most importantly, our dogs love her.

Rita is definitely our go-to dogsitter!
My Josie loves Rita so much, when I come to pick her up, she's reluctant to come home with me. Rita gives her tons of exercise and snuggles. If Josie gets dirty, Rita bathes her. Rita loves your dog like it's her own.
