Rick is amazing! stayed and hungout with Red so he wouldnt be in his kennel all day. He also communicated often and Red was well taken care of when I got home.

Rick helps me and I know him from the community where I live. Rick took excellent care of my dog during walks. I highly recommend him and I plan to use him again soon.

fluffy tails for dogs with me

I am an elementary school school teacher and I love both dogs and exercise. I also used to foster German Shepherds until they were ready to be adopted by a new family. Now I use my athletic interests (running, walking, etc) alongside my work with dogs. I will take your dog on a walk or run for the appropriate amount of time for your dogs size. Along the way, I bring my portable water bowl ...

What Rick would like to know about your dog

I only need to know the basics: how your dog does on a leash (does your dog pull, or are they good on a leash) and if your dog gets along well with other dogs and people.

When Rick watches your pet

For small and medium sized dogs, I prefer to walk your dog close to home. For big to large sized dogs, I prefer to go to parks and lakes to get a good walk/run in. My favorites are the lake at Shawnee Mission, Loose Park in the city, and the big Legacy loop in Lees Summit. I also will utilize dog parks for socialization if your dog is good with others.
