No Females in Heat
Thank you for taking such good care of Jax. Love all the photos.
Rick and Jo were the perfect caretakers for our sweet 5-month-old Goldendoodle. We were so appreciative of their willingness to accommodate him at the very last minute after our previous plans fell through. After completing Rick and Jo’s pup questionnaire and my husband's visit to their home, we knew our puppy would be in experienced, loving hands. This allowed us to focus on the conference we attended without needing to worry one bit about ...
Ted always seems super happy when he stays with Jo and Rick! We always get great updates and pictures to make us feel like he's having fun even while we are out of town!
About Rick and Jo
Your dog will NEVER ever be alone.
We have been dog sitting for over twenty years for friends and neighbors in our beautiful neighborhood, the Prospect Hill National Historic District, near downtown Cincinnati, full of nearby city parks, doggy parks, historic homes, and views of the skyline. We are semi-retired and work out of our home--YOUR DOG WILL NEVER BE ALONE; WE ARE ALWAYS HERE.
We have a large historic home; your dog is welcome in every room. In the back is ...
What Rick and Jo would like to know about your dog
No breed preferences although we'd like to know about your dog's regular routine and preferences--food, recreation, compatibility with other dogs, comfort level around people, experience in doggy parks and doggy day care, liking to ride in the car or not, health concerns, vigorous or slower walks, favorite toys and kind of play, sleeping routines and any on-going training. We want to reinforce the training that your dog is currently receiving or has received in a consistent way that does not confuse your dog. We have an extensive questionnaire that we ask families to fill out about their furry ones and we review the questionnaire at the meet and greet.
We have a soft place in our heart for rescue dogs and understand that many suffer lingering PTSD issues and problems with socialization. We have had several of those that we adopted over the years, and we have patience and empathy and know that they can be lovely dogs just the same. We, however, cannot accept a dog with a history of serious aggression.
