Ryan watched our two small mixed breed dogs at our apartment for a few weekends - he was an immbeccable house guest and we returned to two happy and tired doggies. Our dogs can be difficult but he was able to handle them walking in diffeeent directions from each other and knowing the one always poops in the kitchen. Highly recommend for a worry free experience!

Ryan is a trustworthy and dependable pet sitter. If you're anything like me, your pet is your child and you don't take their care lightly. While I was out of town, I never worried for a minute about Fred's wellbeing and safety. Ryan sent pictures and updates to keep me in the loop and at ease. When I returned home, I could see that Fred was happy and well taken care of.

Hi there! My name is Ryan, and I am a self-employed writer/director and teaching artist whose always loved meeting and being around new pets. My own family's dog, Murphy, passed away almost two years ago, so I understand how a dog or cat can be a crucial member of the family.
She was absolutely one of my best friends!

What Ryan would like to know about your dog

I know some dogs (understandably) become anxious when their owner is away. Its always helpful for me to know what might alleviate this anxiety beyond walks and playing, and also to know anything that might trigger your dog to be anxious, so I know to avoid said triggers.

When Ryan watches your pet

My favorite type of walk is a long walk through a park or reserve, along a river or stopping at the trees planted on a city sidewalk.

Fun activities we can do together:
Fetch (duh!)
Snuggling (once we are best friends)
