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!

Richard was great. He was very reliable and took great care of our pups for the weekend. He also sent lots of photos which we enjoyed and made our travels easier. We highly recommend him.

Richard has been great with Kinsey! He's prompt, reliable, and really loves dogs. We'll be having Richard help with walks a great deal in the months to come!

About Richard

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!
