Rio was great with Cooper! He sent lots of pictures and was always quick to respond. He was flexible with my schedule and you can tell he really loves dogs. I will definitely use him again to watch Cooper!

Oompa had a pleasant stay at Rio’s! He provide pictures throughout his boarding. I only suggest that the pictures captured Oompa when he was in motion (i.e. playing, walking, eating, etc) versus the posed pictures- which were great shots?
