Richard was fantastic. My dog Ollie was so happy and calm when I picked him up. I can tell he had a great visit and was wonderfully taken care of during his stay. I’ll definitely book with Richard again.

My apartment is on the ground floor, and my door opens to a lobby that has ...

What Richard would like to know about your dog

My home is wide open to any variety of dog. However, since we will be taking lots of fun walks, I do need to be sure that if your dog is large, that I can handle him on a leash. Other than that, this schoolhouse is "in session!"
