I can't say enough about Richard. He was great with Kinsey, super reliable, and he always sent the best updates. We're incredibly fortunate to have had him to help take care of our pup.

The. Best. Richard is my pup’s best bud and goes out of his way to give Arlo extra love every visit.

Rich is quick to communicate and very respectful. He is great with our pup, and we love having Rich come check in with him! He’s consistently our first choice!

Let's go to the bark park!

Hi! I'm Rich! I'm a semi-retired engineer that has traded the cubicle life to pursue my passion of working with animals! My girlfriend and I have two animal companions of our own...a miniature Pinscher mix named Charlie, who is a total ham and DiDi, a Maine Coon kitty who is a dainty lady.

I dig long walks on the beach with my pups but in Iowa I've traded the beach for parks and paths ...

What Richard would like to know about your dog

No breed preferences. I like all dogs! Any medical conditions, phobias or notes on what he/she doesn't like is always good!

Additional Skills

When Richard watches your pet

I like walks in parks or large grassy spots the best! General exploring, playing fetch and other "off-leash" shenanigans to get the lead out is great...if your pup is into that!
