Richard is absolutely wonderful. He bonded with our two girls immediately and they just adore him.

He definitely has a special way with them.

What Richard would like to know about your dog

No breed preferences. Most people I have pet sat for are good about informing me of their pet's ideal feeding, exercise, and medicine schedules.

When Richard watches your pet
