Richard is a reaponsible doggie sitter and just an all around great guy! He constantly sent us pics and updates on our 2 doggies and we knew that they were in good hands! He even heard there was a snow storm in our departure city and messaged me to be sure our flight wasn’t cancelled. He offered to watch them another day to be sure they would be safe. Plus, our dogs really love ...

Richard and Steph are amazing. They have been watching our 15 month old Cavachon since he was a puppy and he always has a great time with them. They take him on walks, make sure he meets new friends and really treat him like he was their own. AND, they keep in touch the whole time giving updates and pictures. Our last vacation, Richard and Steph house sat and we can't think of a better ...

Richard took amazing care of our 30-pound Puggle for 17 days while we traveled in Asia. Richard was incredibly responsible, trustworthy and sensitive to our dog’s needs, which include a high level of exercise and management of her separation anxiety. We cannot imagine a better caregiver for our dog while we are away!

I run, play and train dogs for fun

I live in a dog friendly apartment complex and we hang out with almost all of the dogs here. My door faces the little dog park that our community shares.

I work 10 minutes away from home and have a flexible schedule as well as my girlfriend, she works 5 minutes away.

We are also happy to take your dog on some trips over the weekend if you'd like.

I was the primary care taker ...

When Richard watches your pet

We have 3 parks nearby and there is a mini dog park right outside our door where we spend a lot of time with our neighbors dogs. We have 2 avid joggers in the home (2 different speeds as well).

We teach young and old dogs new tricks that work with their personalities.

If it's a long stay (and with your permission) I'll also bring your dog to my parents where he/she can play on an acre of land and listen to my old corgi (in a wheelchair) tell fun stories of what being a dog in her day was like.
