Treat dogs like family!

I have been one family's personal pet sitter for 4 years. They are older and don't travel as much but I love dog sitting for them.

When Rick watches your pet

I live in a very pet friendly neighborhood. There's two on leash parks within walking distance of my apartment (one across the street) as well as a dog park that's relatively close. Besides walks I keep plenty of toys and treats on deck.
