I was very pleased with the service. Richard provided daily pictures and updates. My dogs were well cared for and received lots of love and attention. I could tell the dogs felt comfortable around Richard and Evelyn, and were treated with the same care thy get at home. I will definitely call Richard the next time I need a dog sitter.

Richard and his wife are truly dog lovers! Our 2 dogs are literally on vacation as well when they stay with them. I never have to worry about them....my mind is always at ease when our dogs stay with Richard. I cannot say enough great things about our experiences with him and his wife! They are absolutely wonderful people! I will be coming back again and again.

This is the first time I have left my little girl. She used to have a problem meeting new people, but made up with Richard & Evilyn very quickly. The pics they sent me made me feel at ease while I was away. Thank you for taking such good care of my Sassy girl!
