Spayed and Neutered Dogs
No Females in Heat
Happy dog - excited to return to what Sam obviously considers his second home. unexpected illness was handled by Jo and Rick professionally & with care - would not wish my dog to be cared for by another family
I have never left sweet beagle mix with people I don’t know, so I was super nervous. Immediately after talking to Jo and meeting her, my mind was at ease. She is super knowledgeable about dogs and has tons of experience watching them (not only supervising, but actually caring/giving love and attention). I got TONS of updates and pictures while I was on vacation which was awesome... Bean hung out in the courtyard ...
Rick and Jo were so good about keeping us informed each day and providing us with lots of pictures of our fur babies. They are very thorough and attentive and we felt very comfortable with having our dogs stay at their home. Thank you Rick and Jo!

About Rick and Jo
Your dog will NEVER ever be alone.
We have been dog sitting for 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 a ...
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.
