Ryan is the most amazing sitter. My girls usually visit once a week for some socializing and play time because I work all day, and they start jumping and whining as soon as we pull into his apartment complex. When my older dog got sick, he even offered to take my other one any time day or night so I could focus on my sick little girl. I don't easily trust others with my girlies ...

Ryan was amazing!! We took our 3 dogs with him on a short notice and he took great care of our pups, sent us daily updates and pictures of them which made us feel so much better! Great sitter, next time I'm in Austin I'll def take them with Ryan again!

Cozy Home away from Home 4UR Pups!

Hi!
I'm Ryan! My dog/roomie Fritz & I look forward to hosting your pup while you're away!

About me: I'm a college professor who teaches partially online, so I work from home most of the time. I love pets, and I've owned dogs all my life. As an adult, I've owned everything from a 5 lb Yorkie to a 90 lb Pit Bull, and I've loved them all. Currently, my best buddy is Fritz ...

What Ryan would like to know about your dog

I prefer to watch dogs 50lbs or under, but I'm open to watching mellow bigger dogs. (I live in an apartment, so I just can't accommodate high-energy big dogs!) Please ask, and we can set up a meet-n-greet!

I also prefer to watch dogs 1 year or over, but I'm open to watching pups who are house-broken and/or crate-trained. Bring your puppy by for a meet-n-greet!

I'm happy to do whatever I can to make your dog's stay away from home as fun and comfortable as I can! Please let me know if your dog has any particular quirks, preferences, routines, or phobias, as well as anything you'd like me to do regarding their care and behavior -- what they are and aren't allowed to eat, where they are and aren't allowed to go, etc. I can also administer most medicines, if needed -- just let me know the proper schedule and dosage :) If you've got a larger dog, I prefer a meet-and-greet beforehand to make sure everyone gets along. Any age is fine as long as your dog is house-broken. And please, no aggressive dogs. Playful and silly is just fine, though, as is shy and quiet :)

When Ryan watches your pet

My apartment complex has 2 large, fenced in dog parks, so your pup & I can go play fetch, run with other dogs, or just sniff around in the grass. If your dog isn't the social type, we'll take walks on the great nature paths! And of course, we can play tug of war in the apartment, or just cuddle and get belly rubs on the sofa. If your dog has special play or exercise needs, I'm happy to accommodate!
