Crate-Trained Dogs Only
I've known Rich for many years and he cares for other people's dogs as well as he cares for his own two. His dogs (a pit mix and some sort of Pekingese) are so calm and well-balanced that they are the only other dogs that one of my very temperamental and anxiety-ridden dogs gets along with. My dogs love having Rich and his dogs visit us. I have also observed Rich's care of other friends' ...
Rich has watched my dog Zoey a few times. Zoey is an older girl who is also a tri-pawd and a rescue. She needs a little bit extra TLC due to her missing leg and separation anxiety from being left at the shelter. Zoey gets PLENTY of TLC from Rich and she never displays any anxiety when I leave her. I am the type of owner who is reluctant to leave my dogs with anyone ...
Rich has been a great dog walker and caregiver for years. He takes the time that a dog needs and is always responsive to the dog. I would trust Rich with my dog and not think twice, which is always nice. I can't imagine traveling as much as I do without having someone like Rich.
If you are looking for a dog sitter or a dog walker, then I would recommend Rich.
I'm home for your pets
I'm a work at home technical writer (for Cisco) with two dogs (10 and 14). My dogs love cats (and many have stayed over) and other dogs (I've sat for up to 6 in the house at one time -- easy peasy). I live in a nice wooded area, with plenty of nice spots for walks. My house is very dog friendly, lots of beds and water and fresh air.
I've had dogs all my life ...
