Crate-Trained Dogs Only
I highly recommend Ryan! I work long shifts and occasionally need someone to check on our dog and give him a little outside break during the day, and Ryan definitely went above and beyond to provide him attention and reassurance. She even offered insight into how to treat an issue he had with being itchy. So grateful to have found her!
This was our terriers' first time staying home with someone other than family while "Mom" and "Dad" traveled and it seems to have gone well on both the dogs & sitter's side. Ryan sent several cute photos and emailed us to keep us up to date on daily doings. Since both our dogs and Ryan seem to be happy with each other, we're looking forward to more trips for us and home visits for them!
We have used Ryan on multiple occasions and have always been pleased. She goes out of her way to come during our sometimes narrow time constraints, and remembers important details (like to give the boys Kongs) - even when we forget to ask her! She's awesome and we totally appreciate her. Highly recommend her!
Compassionate, fun, former vet tech
I began as a veterinary technician in 1988, working part time on the side at a boarding kennel until 1991. In 1994 I bought my own aging boarding kennel and built it into a quality business. I began showing collies, then moved to collie rescue. Later I returned to vet tech work. Now I have five cats, and one dog, all rescued in the last decade. Have maintained a select group of clients since 2007 ...
What Ryan would like to know about your dog
