Ripley had a great time staying with Richard. He took her to the dog park often and let her play with the other dogs there which she really seemed to enjoy. Richard was also always good about keeping us updated and sent us several batches of pictures of Ripley every day, which was great.

Luda had another great stay with Richard! Luda had plenty of doggie friends to play with and got plenty of exercise since Richard regularly took him on long walks and trips to the nearby dog park. I highly recommend Richard as a sitter.

  • Verified Background Check

I love pets & their personalities.

I grew up in the country. Our family always had at least two to three dogs at a time as well as at least two cats and they all got along. I worked on a horse ranch for a while and I owned a Doberman Pincer after moving out on my own and found how they need people and a secure environment. I have worked with Dachshunds, German Shepherds, Newfoundlands which are amazingly huge and ...

What Richard would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences. I would be helpful to know if your dog is uncomfortable or fearful in any situations concerning other dogs or children or loud noises. I would also like to know what treats your dog loves and what its favorite toy may bee.

When Richard watches your pet

There are some nearby dog runs that I only use when they are empty and clean of anything questionable and I take a ball or a stick for the dogs to chase. I use tennis balls and use them for only one dog and then i either clean them or throw them away after use as a toy for an individual dog. I do this to protect dogs from any errant germs. I like to protect the health of dogs under my care. Of course, this play time in dog runs is with permission from the owner. I like taking the dogs that I walk around the Long Island City area, and I prefer to walk down by the river or by the River in Brooklyn if the distance is not too far from their home.. There is a quietness being near the river.
