About Ruth

We are a homeschooling family that loves dogs living in downtown Whitby. Would you like to spare your dog from having to go to a kennel when you need some time away? We offer daytime care as well as overnight boarding for medium to large dogs. We have an almost 2 year old mastiff cross who is well socialized and welcomes your playful dog to come and join him. We go for walks at least twice a day and are out for pee breaks regularly.

When we first had a dog we sent him to a kennel when we were away. We found that he came home either sick or just out of sorts and anxious. We vowed never to do that again and have a passion to provide excellent care, exercise and human interaction in our home for your dog so that you can have peace of mind while you're away. When you return you will see your dog has had a great time running and playing, sleeping well and has not been bothered and stressed by other dogs barking up a storm and getting on their nerves.

During your dog's visit with us they will enjoy lots of outdoor play in our very spacious and fully fenced and gated backyard, 2-3 half hour walks (one in the morning and one in the afternoon/evening) in the neighbourhood per day and a relaxing and comfy spot to have a good long nap. We are happy to administer any medication your dog may require. We can also come to your home to spend time with your cats and/or dogs, feed them and take your pooch for a walk. We have two adults and two teenagers in our family and everybody helps out to keep your dog happy and tired from lots of exercise and fun.

We are available on fairly short notice, are insured, and are home full time. Looking forward to meeting your favourite canine soon!!

Summary of services provided:

Overnight boarding in our home Sunday-Saturday, daytime care 8am-6pm (flexible upon request), 2-3 half hour walks/day, medication administration, meals and treats, comfy naps and belly rubs.

Visits to your home: Sunday-Saturday, daytime visits available 8am - 8pm, feed/water and walk your dog (half hour per visit), medication administration, comfy naps and belly rubs. We appreciate your flexibility in home visits times to allow us to navigate caring for our boarding guests simultaneously with your pets.

We loved that Ruth watched our dog. He was happy while in her care and we received updates regularly that also included pictures. She even shared some training ideas with us that was much appreciated. Will be using her again in the fall and have recommended her to a few friends.
