About Us

Emily Rubin, Owner/Director

Practically growing up with dogs and cats working at the family’s boarding and training kennel in Norwalk in the late 1970's, Emily has handled hundreds of dogs and cats during her lifetime.  She began her own professional pet-sitting career ten years ago when she started working with a Newtown-based pet sitting business. Prior to that Emily worked as a licensed private investigator for over ten years, adding another level to her career achievements. On New Years Day, 2011, Emily opened Always Safe at Home, LLC, continuing the excellent service of the predecessor company, Safe at Home. She lives in Newtown with Zoë, a twelve-year-old rescued lab mix, Coco, a four-year-old Sato, and two cats, Wallace and Jules.

"We can't say enough wonderful things about Emily & her sitters at Always Safe at Home. They went above and beyond to make sure our house was in order and our fur babies received great care and attention. Highly recommend Emily and Always Safe at Home"

"We needed our dogs walked while we were worked and were lucky to have found Emily/Always Safe at Home! That was 10 years ago and I cannot imagine leaving them, either while at work or away, with anyone else. Emily and her team are kind, responsible and truly love our pups and love what they do! We consider ourselves the lucky ones to have them in our lives."
