Otis always has the best time at Rick and Jo’s! We love that he’s so well taken care of, and that we never have to worry when he’s staying with them.
Jo and Rick took wonderful care of my dog over Memorial Day weekend. I received regular updates with several pictures of Bree being spoiled and loved. Will definitely trust them with my dog in the future.
Jo and Rick were wonderful with Honey Bear. I am sure Honey Bear missed us and was pretty anxious - but they managed her very well. She was there for 10 full days, and she came home happy and well. Thanks so much Jo and Rick.

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.
