We are so grateful to have discovered Richard as a petsitter for our Bella! When we returned home from our trip, we found Bella to be happy and comfortable in his care. We are DEFINITELY rebooking with Richard and highly recommend him as a petsitter!

Richard did a great job of caring for our large and exuberant Lab while we were away. In addition to boarding our pup, Richard has also come to our house to walk our dog. I recommend him without reservation!

Richard and family were great pet sitters for our dog. They took great care of her and even gave her a bath. Pictures of Taffy w their dog where great to see as she looked happy at their home during our time away. Thanks for your kindness and care. Would highly recommend!

I have attended several positive behavior training ...
