Rich was amazing. You always hope that the reviews are accurate well THEY ARE. I was going to a Christmas Eve party —it was an important one—and I couldn’t bring my dog. I was traveling from NJ and didn’t know how to manage this. I found Rich and he watched my dog for a few hours on Christmas Eve. Not only did I feel very comfortable leaving him with Rich (and Harry ...

My dogs can be a handful. One is still a puppy and is full of energy. We have had Rich watch our 2 dogs several times and he is always great with them, patient, responsive, and sends tons of pictures. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for boarding or daycare

Rich was incredible. Definitely helped me in a pinch with my dog Goomba! He was very responsive and loved all the pictures of my pup with him on their walk. Would certainly use him again in the future and highly recommend. For all kinds of dogs, sometimes can be tough finding your pet as much as you do but Rich certainly has a big affinity for dogs which makes you rest easy while he’s ...

I enjoyed our cold early morning walks. Goomba was a peach! Thanks : )

What Rich would like to know about your dog

I would like to know about basic behavioral characteristics? Does he/she show aggressiveness, nip, bark a lot, etc. What 'commands' does he/she understand? Does a dog socialize well with other small dogs, big, dogs, dogs of opposite sex, etc. Medical - restrictions, allergies, treat preferences, and will there be any meds to administer? Do you crate your dog/s, are they allowed on furniture, in bed? Does he or she have any triggers - squirrels, chase cars, fear of loud noise, etc.

About Rich's Home

When Rich watches your pet

Per client's preferences - dogs parks, walking parks, woodland trails, and the beach. Dogs in my care will play fetch, chase, tug-of-war, swim, explore, spend 10 to 15 mins on focused training (sit, stay, lay down, leave/drop it, etc) and socialize with other dogs and people.
