We were very happy with Ryan as a sitter and will hire him again. Ryan sat at my house for a week for my dog and cat. We returned to our house neat and clean, but most important our animals were calm and happy. Ryan kept us updated and shared pictures. I know he took the dog out for a walk every day, and took the dog to meet friends, something my dog loves. He ...
Ryan loves dogs, and he’s really good with them. He’s taken care of my dog several times, and I always knew she was in the best of hands. He really cares about his charges and will do his best to make sure they are happy and comfortable. Definitely a great person to look after your pets!
Ryan was AMAZING!!! Our 13 year old Airedale who does not give kisses to anyone- Gave him kisses!! We are so grateful that Ryan could come on such short notice and take care of our 3 fur babies. We will only have Ryan come over going forward. Can’t wait to book with him again!!!!!
No dog to difficult to care for
I love dogs, always have. I've been dog sitting and walking for years so I may as well get payed for it. I spent 2 years as a professional canine caretaker. My duties were to board, train, feed, bathe, groom and exercise dogs of all shapes, sizes, temperaments and ages. I am not afraid of them and they are not afraid of me.

What Ryan would like to know about your dog
I like to know the dog's solitary threshold, that is, the amount of time the pooch can stay alone unattended. I always accommodate the dog for 1 to 2 hours UNDER that threshold. It is unhealthy to push a dog to it's limit. For instance, if a dog's threshold is 6 hours, I will do my best to go for 4 or 5 hours depending how my schedule is that day, but never exceeding the threshold. Other than that, I like to know the dog's social experience and temperament. I won't turn down a solitary or aggressive dog, but I like to know what I am dealing with. I have no breed preferences, all dogs are wonderful!
