About Ruth

**not available for long periods of time to do dog boarding e.g 1-2 weeks. I’m not available on the same every week it’s more random days fyi**

Hi everyone,

Since a very young age I've had dogs in my family and I believe they are an extremely important part of our lives and can make it better in every way! I've always had different breeds and since moving to London, Dog Buddy has allowed me to continue doing something I love as well as using my skills and experience to provide an excellent one to one service to like minded dog lovers.

For over a year I've been volunteering at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home as a Kennel Support Worker. This has been an amazing experience and has enhanced my knowledge of many different breeds and has given me good experience of a wide range of behaviours.

I have a friendly and outgoing personality with calm and assertive energy. I enjoy physical exercise and especially like walking (in all weathers)! Just like us, dogs have different needs and personalities. I am happy to adapt, depending on their needs whilst in my care.

Living in a spacious flat, there is plenty of room for your dog to play or rest in. The entry system is secure and the surrounding area is fenced in, providing a safe environment. I can guarantee that they will have a lovely time whilst in my care whether this is a walk, day care or boarding. :-)

I provide, bowls, blankets, toys, poop bags and treats ( if allowed). Of course if you would like to bring anything with them then please do.

Please get in touch if I sound like the right person to look after your furry friend!

    Ruth was brilliant when she looked after our dog for three nights. Our dog loved her (indeed he tried to drag me back to hers after we’d left!). Great communicator. Very obviously genuinely loves dogs and gave him so much fun (day trips, picnics). Flexible when our plane was late which was super nice of her. Wouldn’t hesitate to ask her to take him again.

    We love Ruth!!! Zola stayed for 3 nights, Ruth took her on many walks and really gave her some good exercise which Zola needs. But she was also very understanding and experienced in taking care of Zola's behaviour issues. Thank you! <3
