As always, Rich took amazing care of our Regonwhike we were away for the weekend. We're going to miss having such a reliable sitter available when we move. Thank you for everything Rich!

Rich was great! I knew my dog was in good hands as soon as we dropped him off.

We are new to AZ, and Holly had a great time with Richard over the Christmas/New Year's holidays. She had fun playing with her new friends and Richard sent photos every day. He deserves all the great reviews; very warm, professional and organized. Thanks Richard!

When Richard watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We will go on long walks around my lovely neighborhood, stretching our legs and meeting several friendly fur-neighbors along the way. I am sure we will have tail-wagging canine play dates lined up for the rest of the week!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your dog is welcome to sleep wherever he or she feels most comfortable. However, I do not allow dogs to sleep in bed with me. Please feel free to bring your dog's favorite pillow, blanket, or dog bed from home.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Since I am home FULL TIME. Your dog will have my undivided attention, given the love and affection he deserves day and night. While you are gone you can be sure to rest easy knowing that your canine pal is being very well taken care of. His or her every wish will be my command, whether he or she needs a good scratching behind the ears or wants to go for a long walk. The best part? Belly rubs on demand!
