Richard is fantastic to put it lightly! I trust him with my German Shepherd and my cat while I'm at work as well as when I have to go out of town. He has been pet sitting my babies for almost a year now and there is no one I would trust more. He is caring and attentive to each pet's individual needs and is so patient with them.

When Richard watches your pet

We have quite a few unfenced places within our apartment complex with grass and forest areas, very clean and well maintained. I take my own dog to Chester Frost State Park and Greenway Park in Hixson, we walk her along the hiking trails within the parks and sometimes swim in the water. We frequently go downtown to Play-Wash-Pint so if your dog is registered with them I can bring them along as well.
