Thank you Jo and Rick!!! My Lucky LOVES staying with you. It is obvious you give him so much attention and play time. Thanks for all the walks and dog park trips and time to socialize with other doggies. You are the BEST!

My doggie had a great time at the park with her pals, and was pampered as usual at Rick and Jo's. It is so nice not to worry about her when we are away.

Rick and Jo took great care of my dog Florence. They really get to know the individual pet to make sure they are well cared for. They have a big back yard and often take the dogs to the dog park, so the pups have a great time. I would highly suggest 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.
