Rafael checked up on my reptiles while I was away. It was definitely a strange request but he was very accommodating. He arrived on time and send me very detailed photos after his drop in. I will be using his services again!

We left our dog, Emma, with Rafael, Milo and Phoebe for 4 days while we were on vacation and couldn’t be happier! Emma loves going to see her friends and always comes back tired and happy from playing. Rafael is incredibly attentive and provides lots of updates with pictures, which we love. There is no one we trust more than them to look after Emma while we are away!

Rafael is great! He sent me tons of updates and took excellent care of my child when I was away for the weekend. I absolutely recommend him!

PAWty house - large fenced yard

3.5 years ago, my wife brought a small, beautiful, stubborn English Bulldog into our lives. Fortunately my career allows me to stay at home full time and provide the care and attention such a special breed requires! Bulldogs need a special kind of care and I have researched dietary restrictions, extreme weather care instructions, grooming routines. proper socialization, obedience training techniques for Bulldogs... you name it. Phoebe is a happy, healthy, and loving little ...

What Rafael would like to know about your dog

Health concerns, dietary restrictions, special commands (sit, stay, etc...) Any socialization restrictions? (Some dogs like to be alone and that's perfectly fine! I'm happy to drop in and care for them on their environment).

When Rafael watches your pet

With your permission, your dog can enjoy a number of locations. I am a soccer player, so if your dog enjoys playing with a ball, you can expect them to practice their skills just in time for the World Cup. If your dog enjoys sitting on the couch and just watching TV, we can happily do that as well. Communication is key! let me know how to care for them and I will go above and beyond to meet your expectations.
