Ruth has been a lifesaver and a fantastic find! We highly recommend her services. It's clear she genuinely enjoys what she does, and our dog, Henry, loves her for it. She's friendly, trustworthy, flexible, and has helped us out in some last-minute jams. Ruth has been walking our 1.5 year old golden retriever for a few months now. Henry had never had daycare before and we were nervous about how he'd handle being in a pack of six dogs. Ruth assuaged our fears and helped us figure out how much care our pup needed. She also had a whole plan for the first few weeks of dog walking - slowly introducing each dog, determining how they interacted with others, and assessing their "recall" skills. Henry had no problem falling into this new routine and we got great feedback from Ruth about his behavior and of course, plenty of beach photos. Henry is always excited to see Ruth and can't wait to get to Fort Funston.Jan 2, 2017Verified
Ruth has been wonderful with our puppy! She is professional, flexibility, and kind, and has a great sense of humor about puppy behavior. She has taken our dog for walks, all day when we had a full-day commitment, and for overnight boarding. I cannot recommend her highly enough.Mar 9, 2015
Ruth is great. After just a couple of weeks with Chowder, our cattle dog mix, Ruth has managed to reverse his extreme fear of the Ocean. To the point where he is no longer anxious when he sees the shore, and even gets himself a little bit wet without freaking out. It's an amazing turnaround.Nov 13, 2014Verified
Ruth takes care of our rambunctious puppy Judson while we're at work every weekday. We are in regular communication over text with anything related to Judson, and it's really easy. She has also been flexible with our variable daycare needs. It's really obvious that Judson loves Ruth, and that he has tons of fun with her and the other dogs in her care.Apr 21, 2018
Loved using Ruth's services, whether for walks or boarding. Right up until we left SF..Apr 26, 2018
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I wanted to spend my days running and playing with dogs at the beach.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?Recently I boarded a beautiful white Golden Retriever with a long coat. He had become filthy each day from rolling in the black sand on the beach at Fort Funston but everyday after our walks I took great care to groom his lovely coat. When his owners picked him up they were thrilled by how clean, healthy and happy he was.
