Ric was amazing!! He watched our dog Moose for 10 days over the Thanksgiving break. To say Moose is a handful is an understatement, but Ric handled him with ease. He gave Moose so much exercise and kept him happy and healthy the whole time we were gone. Ric sent us lots of pictures while we were gone and Moose came back cleaner than I've ever seen him! As my 6 year old stated "Ric ...

This was our first time boarding our husky Yukon for so long (a week) and Ric was so good to him! Unfortunately, the day before boarding, my husky cut his paw, but Ric was both understanding and attentive to my husky.

This was our first time using Rover and also the longest time we were away from our 2 dogs, we chose Ric initially because of his excellent reviews. When we met with him we immediately saw his connection and love for dogs. He takes the time to ask questions and truly cares for them. We were gone for nearly 2 weeks and received pics, updates and videos daily, he even took video of the dogs ...

Huge backyard and Avid Walker!

A little about me, my love for dogs has come from always owning dogs for as long as I can remember. I recently lost my best companion an 18 year old lab named Shadow. Now its just my fur baby, an 8 year old Doberman named Karin. Karin and I would love to have some fur friends to join us on our 4 mile walks everyday or to stay home and enjoy the company. I ...

When Ric watches your pet

Walking dogs is own of my favorite hobbies. They will join my dog Karen and I on our walks through trails and parks daily whether it be four miles long to tire them completely out or a walk around the block for the more calm dogs. I also have a huge backyard for them to run around as they may please. I also would not mind to hangout and enjoy the day with a couch potato!
