Rachael and her Rufflife team are absolutely amazing ! When we first moved to Austin we were so concerned about who we would trust to take care of our dog. They are so organized and came over for a consultation and our dog fell in love immediately. Whenever we've used them we know to expect a full report and pictures within the necessary time window. Their love for our pet as if it's their own is completely apparent and we know we can trust them fully! Would recommend them to anyone!

We are beyond pleased and satisfied with the service that Rachel with Ruff life provided. We contacted her with very short notice around the holidays and she was quick to respond and squeezed our interview into her very packed schedule. She was extremely through in her interview process and in learning about our 3 rescue boxers. Her app and style of communication is wonderful. She arrived at our home exactly as promised on all 4 days and gave us an immediate and comprehensive report with multiple photo's each time she visited. It was so nice to know that our babies were being well cared for and loved while we were away.

Five Star Service! If my dogs could leave a review they would probably say “we love our time with RuffLifeATX, and want to tell everyone how great Rachael and her team make our work days! Filled with love, pets, walks and playtime. We even get to watch our favorite shows.” Cannot recommend RuffLife highly enough, and I only stumbled on this excellent service through a Google search after moving to Austin last year. Excellent value service and so reliable and flexible, couldn’t ask for more. Happy pets=Happy pet parents

We were referred to Ruff Life ATX by our former company, Pets Domain, as we moved out of their service area. Ruff Life has been an incredible help to us! Rachael is super knowledgeable and supportive. She gave us training tips that worked really well with our pup, Mac. With Ruff Life's help, we were able to successfully transition Mac from the crate to the kitchen during the day with virtually no issues. Ruff Life always sends updates after their visits with pictures. When a new dog walker will be taking care of Mac, Ruff Life always does a walk with a "seasoned" Mac walker and the new person first. Mac loves his friends Rachael (and Loki), Matt, Ciera, Daniel, and now Jazmin! Rachael and her team are easily accessible, as well. Definitely recommend!

Had them watch two dog and a cat during our week vacation. One of our dogs is very shy and does not do well at a traditional kennel. they did great and sent pics daily.

Having recently relocated to Austin with a puppy that we had adopted a couple months prior, we were desperate to find good pet care from someone we could trust. Rachael was that person. She knows each animal that she cares for individually, which is what makes her so special. Now that I know Rachael and the RuffLife team I cannot imagine leaving my dog in the care of anyone else. Thank you for your awesome work.
