Rafael took care of Oscar for several days over Christmas and had a great time. Rafael sent several pictures and videos and Oscar seemed very at home playing with Blue. Thanks again, Rafael.

Rafael took great care of our little one. She was very happy and comfortable at his house and got along well with Rafael, his family, and his dogs. He was great with communication and flexible in working with our schedule around flights in and out of town. Thanks Rafael!

Moochie had a great time with Rafael. He was able to take Moochie in various walks that tuckered him out! He’s was always looking forward to his afternoon walk!

About Rafael

years of experience
  • First Aid & CPR
  • Verified Background Check
  • Rover 101


I am CPR First Aid certified, I'm very flexible with time, dogs will have a fenced in yard to run around in or 1 on 1 in the kennel and get some daily excersise, toys, and lots of play time. I'll spend quality time with each and every dog that comes whether in the yard or 1 on 1 in the kennel.
I LOVE what I do! The dogs bring me joy everyday! I own ...

What Rafael would like to know about your dog

I always like to know what daily routine your dog is used to so I can try to maintain their normal schedule as closely as I can. I like to know if there are any situations that make your dog nervous or aggressive so we can avoid those situations. I love all breeds and personalities equally!

Prior to booking your stay I require a meet and greet to make sure that both humans and dogs are a good match! I generally like to meet up at my place so that the dogs can get to see and sniff around the environment in which they will stay.
During your stay I request that you bring the following:
-Any kennel your dog may be used to using (do not feel you have to bring this if your dog does not like to use one)
-Any bed your dog is comfortable with (so he/she has something that smells like home)
-Any favorite toys
-Enough food to last for the whole stay plus a few extra days just in case
-Emergency contacts
-Labeled medications
-A leash to use on our many exciting adventures

All dogs that stay at my house should be UTD on vaccines and flea/tick prevention.
