About Ruth

Hi, I'm Ruth, myself & my two young adult daughters run a long-established home-from-home home boarding, pet sitting & dog walking service for small & medium dogs in Enniskerry Co. Wicklow. I consider myself very lucky to do what I do because I love animals, and I'm extremely conscientious with excellent references.

My home is your dog's home from home. It's a very chilled out calm and happy and safe home with a large safe enclosed fenced garden & we are big softies and avid animal lovers. I dog walk 365 days of the year & the weather doesn't put us off...it only adds to the fun!

Your dog lives, eats & sleeps here in my home exactly how they would in yours, so if they sleep on the sofa by the stove in your house, they do that here too...if they snuggle down at the foot of your bed, the snuggle down at the foot of one of ours.

We mountain hike for one good hour a day & do another shorter evening walk in the woods. I can also offer a local pick-up & drop-off service to facilitate handovers.

I home board for long or short stays and have had dogs stay with me for anything from one night to nine weeks while their family was in Australia. I also pet sit in your home, moving in with your dog for minimal disruption to their routine as well as maintaining the security of not leaving your home empty while you're away.

I am not currently in a position to offer dog walking or homeboarding services to any of the dogs on the list of Restricted Dog Breeds below:

American Pit Bull Terrier

I offer a bespoke service, and my aim, above all, is to make your experience easy and stress-free for you and your pet, just let me know what works for you and if I can oblige, I will.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have as I'd be more than delighted to chat with you about your pet and their needs. I look forward to meeting you

Ruth is fabulous and looked after little Snoopy so well he didn't want to come home when I arrived to collect him! He had a great day with her and is looking forward to a longer stay next weekend! Would highly recommend Ruth.
