Rick and Jo were the best. While we were out of the country, Enzo developed a some runny stools. They took him to the vet, got him all cleared up with some rice and Enzo returned to us happy and healthy. Love this couple. Plus the photos Jo sends are hilarious!

Once again, Chester was well cared for - he gets SO excited to see Rick and Jo when he is dropped off! They are extremely flexible with my schedule and I know I can trust them to take care of my fur-baby!

We always look forward to Wednesdays when Chester is coming for daycare.

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.
