About Ron

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am conveniently located in Cedar Mill near freeway access, and can offer your pup a half-acre yard and a fun, easy-going 7-year-old female lab for companionship. We take a walk or go to the dog park each day and have frequent play sessions. I work at home so I am usually around.

Your dog should be well-behaved, good on a leash, and friendly to other dogs and people. I take up to two dogs at a time, with occasional exceptions for past clients.

Thank you for considering me!

Burt was at ease, comfortable and happy with Ron as were we! Ron made the separation easy and we appreciated his occasional text and pictures assuring us that all was well!
Ron is great. Olive had great stay and Ron was very accommodating. Olive probably was treated better at Ron's than she is at home ;-) Would recommend him to any/all
We have a very hyper 3 1/2 year old German Shorthaired Pointer. He can not be left alone, nor can he be kenneled. Ron has a keen sense of how to handle dogs...we trust his judgment and decisions while Chad is in his care. We've hired Ron several times now and feel our dog is safe and properly cared for. Ron is a great person overall. We would highly recommend him...dogs, big, little, young, old...PLUS he has Emma a very sweet and helpful Lab.
Every time we take our dog to Ron's he has a blast! We couldn't be more pleased with Ron's care of our dog. My only hesitation in giving him the glowing review he richly deserves is that if people find out how great he is, we may have difficulty securing a reservation with him.
Our Ginny was so tired she fell asleep in the car on the way home. This was her first time away and in the company of other friendly dogs. We were very pleased to have a happy tired pet. Thank you Ron for your care of Ginny!
We have used Ron 5 or 6 times now and will use him every time he is available. He is flexible, friendly and our dog really seems to enjoy himself there. Ron's dog is a fantastic co-host and I would recommend Ron to anyone looking for a place to leave their dog.
We couldn't have found a better home to leave our Koda. Ron is so gentle and kind, and obviously dogs adore him. There were a few happy dogs when we arrived at his home who were quite comfortable in their surroundings. The backyard was peaceful and beautiful for any being to relax in. We were a bit apprehensive leaving Koda anywhere for the first time, as she is adopted and from an abused home with plenty of "baggage" she is afraid of other dogs, but she seemed to relax a bit and survived her stay with little difficulty. It was very comforting to leave her in such capable hands. Thanks so much Ron!
When i take my dog Molly to Ron's house she can't wait to get out of the car and go and meet him and his dog Ema! She loves being there and I love seen her happy! Thank you Ron!!!!!
Ron's service with both our dogs was outstanding.
He is caring and shows a wonderful compassion with dogs. His dog 'Emma' was great with our two Labrador Retrievers. My wife and I are elated to have found Ron on 'Dog Vacay'.

We have planned to use Ron for any of our future trips and outings.
Our dog, Phoebe just returned from a 10-day stay with Ron. She doesn't know she is a dog because we treat her like a princess and I can tell Ron did too.

We have only left her twice in her three years of life and this is her second visit with Ron. She came home at the same weight (always a sign they did not grieve) and went right back into her majesty role at home. I know Ron cared for her like we do so, I will always leave her with him.
Ron is great with both dogs and people. A positive, happy person who Porter and I enjoy very much. If given a choice, Porter would live with Ron full time....it's tough getting him to leave.
This was Oso’s second and longest stay so far with Ron and he did great. He likes and trusts Ron and enjoyed being next to him when they went on their daily walks and also liked hanging out with Ron on his couch during quiet time. Ron is obviously very experienced at managing several dogs and welcomes them into his home as if they lived with him full time. We will definitely entrust Oso to Ron’s care again in the future.
Hunter, our energetic black Lab had a great time staying with Ron & Emma. He seems a bit sad to be away from you both. Hunter really loved running and chasing balls at the Dog park. Thanks again, Ron for the pics / update, patience and for being flexible...we were running late for pick-up!
Ron is great! My dog Enzo gets super excited when we turn down Ron's street. Ron has provided overnight stay's as well as day care for our pooch. When our dog is with Ron and Emma (his dog), I'm not one bit concerned. A huge plus, when we come home, Enzo is exhausted from playing. He's also made some new friends when staying with Ron.
Ron was a great host! The backyard is beautiful and provides a great playground for the pups. Cal was happy for the opportunity to socialize with other weekend guests (since he is an only child) and go to the dog park. It's apparent that Ron loves dogs as much as we do, and we would happily leave our border collie with him again with no worries.
Ron is the best "back-up parent" for your furry side-kick's! I actually met Ron through another client of Ron's who 'continue' to rave about him.
In spite of the fact that my two year old German Shorthaired Pointer has no OFF-SWITCH...Ron was able to get him settled by a buddy-time on the couch after dinner and playtime at the dog park.
This was a 2-day test stay for our new (to us) dog to see how he would do in this environment. He has some separation anxiety since he has only been with us for a few months and his life was very unsettled prior to that. So we really weren't sure how well he would settle in at a new house. However, Ron is kind and gentle and his own dog, Emma, is an absolute sweetheart that seems happy to share her home with other dogs. We will now be leaving Oso with Ron for a more extended trip in the near future and feel confident he will be well cared for and will be a happy boy when we return.
Ron is a great host. Would highly recommend to others and would have Olive stay with Ron & Emma again. Michael
Elsa had a great time with Ron! She loved him and was always by his side! We received emails and lots of pictures from Ron. Ron has been wonderful and Elsa thinks so too!
This is our second time using Ron. Riley loves going over to his house and always comes home exhausted! He plays hard! We already have our next day with Uncle Ron booked!
My 4-1/2 golden loved staying with Ron. He has a great yard for dogs to play in and even takes them to the dog park. I'm thrilled to have found Ron!
We left our 8 months old puppy with Ron for a doggy daycare. Before the stay we visited the house for meet and greet. Ron has a big backyard, a doggy door and a lot of areas where the dogs can play and rest. He also takes the dogs to the dog park to run around. Ron answered all our questions and was very confident and calm, it seems like he knows what he is doing.

I texted Ron in the middle of the day to see how Misha is doing and he responded very quick. When we picked the puppy up after in the evening he was tired and slept all evening.

We would definitely leave our puppy with Ron and recommend him to our friends.

Thank you!
We left our very crazy two year old Weimaraner, Gilley, with Ron for a night as a test. We wanted to make sure he would want to keep her for a longer stay! His yard is fabulous with so much room for running and his dog Emma is adorable. Gilley seemed really happy, loved playing with Emma, and Ron was great with how crazy she is. (and spoiled) We are so relieved about an upcoming trip because we will know she is in great hands!
Ron and Emma (his yellow lab) provided excellent care for my high energy dog. She had a great time in the half acre yard, going to the dog park, on walks and sharing his home. Ron is conscientious, caring and mellow when it comes to dealiing with dog behaviors. Will definitely use his services again.
Ravi returned to Ron's after several daytime play dates for two nights. Ron is very caring and careful, and we felt that Ravi was in good hands while having a good time with another canine boarder. We enjoyed the emails and photos, too, and returned with peace of mind to a happy puppy. We recommend Ron without hesitation.
Shadow had a fabulous time with Ron and Emma and was extremely well cared for. I think Shadow was sad that his vacation was over and is looking forward to his next stay. I would highly recommend Ron.
Ron has provided a warm and loving home for Chip while I was out of town. He takes the dogs to the park each day. Would recommend 100%.
Porter loves Ron and Emma!! Porter was happy, well-fed, had plenty of exercise, and was loved. Ron and his dog Emma are wonderful.
Ron has a lovely home and expansive beautiful back yard that is well equipped for dog to run and play. His dog is very calm and well mannered and a great companion for my older puppy. Ron is gracious and very capable with a variety of dog personalities and treated our dog with care. They even took a field trip to the dog park with all of he dog guests for the weekend. It was a great experience.
Thank you Ron, for taking such good care of Gidget. Your patience and good nature with her "special needs" is very much appreciated. Emma is a great hostess as well. I will happily recommend you and Emma to anyone.
Ron and Emma are the PERFECT fit for our boy Movado. He came home once and tired and very happy. We loved getting our daily updates and pictures. It was so comforting knowing Ron and Emma made him feel right at home. Though Movado was happy to see us, we could tell he was sad to be away from his new friends the second he got home. Looking forward to many more stays!!!
I actually met Ron (and Emma) at a dog park before I knew about DogVacay, where he brought my dog during her stay. He has a way with dogs that brings them at ease, and easy-going Emma is always at his side. Ron's house is very dog friendly and his back yard has plenty of space to romp around and explore. Even with our relatively long vacation (a month) our dog Keks had no problem at all during her stay. Highly recommended!
Bradley love it! He was part of the family during his stay and I was able to relax knowing he was in good hands. We'll definitely use Ron again...soon!
Ron was terrific with little Ravi, who had a great time at his home and in his beautiful garden. Ron's dog, Emma, is very mellow, and a good big sister for Ravi.

Ron's attentive to communication and reliable. We look forward to more play dates for Ravi with Ron and Emma.
Ron was awesome! It was evident that our dog Cooper was super comfortable there with Emma and her other dog friends. We could tell he really connected with Ron since he actually turned around and walked back in his house when we came to pick him up (usually he's pulling us to the car to go home). I think staying at Ron's house was like a fun retreat for Cooper! We are now excited about leaving him again, rather than worried! Thanks, Ron!
Thank you Ron. Leo had a wonderful time. I think he is lonely here at home without his pals.
Ron goes out of his way to cater to the needs of the dog he is watching adn he clearly enjoys dogs. His yellow lab Emma is easygoing and rolls with just about everything I think. My Izzy is a spirited puppy and he made sure to get her to the dog park for many hours a day. I highly recommend him.
Another great stay at Uncle Ron's.
Our dog had a great stay. Thanks to Ron and Emma!
Ron was great with Izzy! She came home a happy dog. He kept me on the loop sending pictures and letting me know the day's activities and how she was doing.
An Excellent experience. This was the first time I ever left Emma with someone she didn't know so I had reservations about doing it. He was very easy to work with. I was from out of state and my travel time was not definite so we had not met and had to work out times for drop off and pick. Ron was very flexible. He is very friendly and his Emma was a wonderful companion for my Emma Jean. I highly recommend him to any one needing his services.
Leo's stay with Ron was first rate in every regard. His ample yard, friendly labrador, and working from home made this a perfect match for my energetic dog. He went to extra effort to locate a fenced dog park for regular exercise for Leo. His home is clean and well maintained. He obviously loves his own dog and was extremely welcoming to Leo. I look forward to having Leo stay at Ron's again in the future.
Our dog had a great visit and wonderful time playing with Emma. We loved getting a picture of him too during his stay! He is looking forward to a return visit.
