Our dog, Kobi, had a great time at Richard's place. You can tell that Richard is a dog lover and we enjoyed getting pictures of our kiddo hanging out with his 2 kiddos, Gunner and Jade. I would highly recommend leaving your 4 legged kiddo with Richard and if we need to leave Kobi with someone in the future, we will definitely see if Richard is available. His place is safe and secure and we ...

Richard is now my go-to guy to watch my lab any time I am needing a superb dog sitter. He has a great yard and two fun playmates for Solomon, clearly loves dogs and is very easy to get along with. Really a great guy, and a wonderful place for my hound to stay when I am away.

Richard was great with my super shy dog, Luce. He gave her the space she needed to feel more comfortable at his home. Based on the pictures he sent it looks like she had a blast playing with his dogs. I would highly recommend him as a great dog sitter.

When Richard watches your pet

Typical day in the life of our Dog Jade :Jade is a flat coat retriever /?. She spends her day hanging with us while we garden .We have plenty of natural space with loads of critters to follow around inside of our fully fenced back yard .Its more like a park than a yard as we have an orchard , trees , shop 'all well lighted and protected.Jade is a calm indoor dog who loves to make the rounds every few hours to visit her wild life friends .
We are retired , so home most of the time , walks are always an option on a daily basis .
Jade doesn't have to go to a park as she lives in one .
At night she watches TV , hangs in the family room with us and sleeps in the bedroom on her mat.
We have a 12 ft kennel that she has been in twice , spoiled to the bone ...oh well.
