Riley was a dog sitter for me for one summer and was superb! She loves dogs and is a caring pet sitter. I would safely say that you cannot do better than to hire her for your furry friends. She will spoil them royally with walks and cuddles.
Sincerely,
Penny V.

Riley loves dogs of all shapes and sizes and treats everyone as if they are her own! I trust her whole heartedly and know that my senior dog is in great hands with her!

I have yet to meet someone who loves dogs more than Riley! Every time we're out, she is eager to greet every pup and spread some love. She's an excellent dog guardian and I would highly recommend her!

Canine Caretaker & House Sitter

Your pet is a part of your family, and when you aren’t able to be with them, you want to be sure the people you are entrusting them to have the same high standard of care.

I'm Riley - a wedding photographer and pet caretaker in Boston . Having studied animal science and gone on to Bali for a photojournalism mission alongside a Nat Geo photographer for animal rehabilitation/rescue, I am a lover of animals ...

What Riley would like to know about your dog

I always ask to meet the client and their pet before taking on a job, to make sure we both have an understanding of each other, your expectations, and the dog's dynamic with me. Let's meet for coffee or a quick chat and walk around the block as an introduction.

I also always ask for a hand-written organized list of duties required for the dog. Walk times, durations, feeding preferences, exercise patterns, anything you can think of to write down for me.

I am high-energy and love playing with pups--but I also had a senior basset hound back home with my mom so I know the love, care and patience an old dog needs.

When Riley watches your pet

Depending on your neighborhood I will ask you your typical walking preferences. My goal as a professional is to do my best to take your place while you're away. I want to do everything you do with your dog, to keep them the happiest and safest during their time with me.
