Riki is great with dogs and a fantastic 'pack leader' and I felt that my dog was in great hands. I left Penny for about 24 hours with her, and received many pictures throughout the day.

Penny had a great time and I would definitely use Riki again next time we need a dog-sitter.

We've only had our dog Tali for a few months and were very nervous about leaving her with new people while we went away, but Riki put us right at ease. I met Riki at the dog run and Tali loved her and her dogs Spartacus and Piper. I'm pretty sure since we picked her up yesterday she's missing her four-legged and two-legged new friends. Would definitely like Tali to stay here again in the ...

The Queens Dog House

My husband and I own 2 very friendly dogs that love having guests: a Golden retriever mix and a Labrador. My husband is an amateur dog trainer who can provide free training while your dog stays with us. We are both active and love to take our dogs for runs and daily trips to the local dog park. We believe that dogs deserve to be treated with love and affection, that's why we use positive ...

What Riki would like to know about your dog

I have no preferences in terms of breeds. I believe every dog should be judged by his/her individual personality and not by their breed. I would like to know if the dog has any allergies or health issues. The dog must get along with other dogs, be vaccinated and treated for flees and ticks. I would love to know if he/she has a favorite spot she likes scratched and anything else that he/she likes. If there are any quarks or tendencies: like being afraid of loud noises, lunging at people or other dogs. I would also like to know if he/she are neutered/spayed. In the end our dogs: Spartacus and Piper have the final veto power so we would like to arrange a meet and greet before we commit to taking care of your dog.

* puppies and un-neutered dogs are an extra $5 a night

When your dog stays with Riki

Here's where we'll take our walks
Every day I take the dogs out in the morning for about half and hour through Yellowstone Park and the surrounding neighborhood. In the late afternoon-evening we take our dogs to the dog park on Grand Central Parkway. It's a giant, fenced in park with a bunch of dogs and they romp around for about 1.5 hours. Then in the late evening I take them out again for about 20 minutes on the quiet neighborhood streets.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Wherever he/she wants to sleep. On the bed, couch, dog-mat, or even on a chair (like our dog Piper likes to do)

Time I'll spend with your dog
As much as possible. No less than 12 hours.
