My dog was so happy with Richard. He is a fantastic sitter. He sent pictures to us while we were away. I can tell he loves dogs and I will definitely use him again. Very pleased with our choice and we will recomend him to our friends.

We had a great experience leaving our dog with Richard! It was our first time leaving her with a sitter, but she did great! Seemed to have lots of fun with the other dogs and got lots of attention from the kids. We felt totally at ease leaving her in their home. Its easy to see they are true animal lovers. Will definitely book again.

My wife and I, fostered abandoned puppies from local animal shelters, handing feeding with bottles, slowly introducing solid foods, taking care of any medical needs, and house/crate ...

What Richard would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preference. I would have to know how they are with kids? crate/house trained? how are they with other dogs? How often does he/she go for walks? He/she free roaming or stay in crate most of the time? Medical needs?

When Richard watches your pet

Some trail walks and I have a swimming pool. So, if you're comfortable with it and provide a life vest, they can get in.
