Chip was wonderful once again! Harper was having some food/digestive issues and he tried out some different foods with her and she ended up being just fine and eating normally. She has an abundance of energy and Chip does such a great job exercising her and being patient with her, and gives updates with photos. Will be rebooking again!

This is the second time we've used Chip to watch our pup. Chip is always quick to respond, and he was super flexible with us as our plans which changed several times. We know Bowie loves staying with Chip and Ali because he is so excited to see them when we drop him off, and he always comes home tired and happy. We'll definitely be using Chip again!

What Richard would like to know about your dog

Are they potty trained (not a deal breaker if not). What is their obedience level? Have they ever snapped, bite at or gotten aggressive at other dogs or humans? Do they get along with other dogs? Loves Labradors obviously but also Golden Retrievers as well but no real preference. Some smaller dogs.

When Richard watches your pet

We will go on walks to one of the parks down the street. We will play in the backyard with balls and toys frequently. And occasional get away to the big park down the road another half mile. On really hot days I have sprinklers and kiddy pools to cool off in (I don't leave dogs outside)
