Our Golden Retriever had a great time staying with Richard and his dogs. We received daily updates and pictures. Richard’s house has a great outdoor space for the dogs to play and run around. We will definitely book again with Richard.

We were very comfortable leaving our dog with Richard for the weekend. His dogs are welcoming of visitors, and he has a great backyard for the dogs to play. Our dog is older, and Richard was happy to give our dog his medicine and help him up and down the stairs from the porch into the yard. We wouldn't hesitate to have Bailey stay there again.

Richard is a top notch sitter. He has two wonderful dogs that Gizmo (corgi) loves, is very attentive, and lives in a great spot (residential Los Altos). Highly recommend!

I'll treat your dog like mine

I have been around dogs all my life. I currently have a 11 year old beagle and a 3 year old yellow lab. I am also a volunteer with NorCal Beagle Rescue. Your dog will have my full attention while you are away.

I am also open to host your dog at our house upon a successful "Meet and Greet" with our two dogs first. I must insist on a "Meet and Greet" at least ...
