During the past 5 years every time I have had to travel for vacation or for my sons' hockey and baseball tournaments, I was overwhelmed with the responsibility of finding a boarding facility that I could bring my dog (Wyatt) to, knowing he would be happy and well cared for. It became very clear that as he got older, and our trips got longer, Wyatt was very unhappy going to the boarding environment, I couldn't bear to bring him there anymore.
It was at this point I started looking for a person or service that would come and stay at my house so both Wyatt and my cat (Floyd) would be cared for in our home. Leane (A Ruff Ruff Life) came highly recommended from a couple of close friends so we set up a time for her to come and meet my animals and myself, and within the first few minutes with Leane, I was confident that not only would she take excellent care of Wyatt and Floyd but that she would also take good care of my home while we were away.
Over the past several months I have had Leane come and stay at my house to take care of both Wyatt and Floyd for anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks. And every time I leave, I am confident that my animals are getting the best care and attention. Because of the faith I have in Leane, it has allowed us to travel stress-free knowing if she has any updates she will contact me and when I check in she is always around to keep me in the loop.
Her prices are fair and reasonable but the most valuable part is when I get home, it is like we were never away. It is clear that Wyatt and Floyd have been well taken care of and they have also had a stress-free experience.
I would highly recommend Leane and a Ruff Ruff Life to any person looking for a trustworthy and highly capable service to take excellent care of their pets for any length of time, whether it is just a walk or a two week vacation.
