About Rich

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Animals have always been an important part of my life. My home includes 3 rental apartments, all of which currently have dogs. I have my own wonderful Labrador and often care for tennant's pets as well. My yard is fenced and there is a walking trail abutting the property. There are also several large conservation areas within a few miles, one of which serves as the "home base" for the daily dog-walking group I exercise my dog with.

This was Remi's first visit to Rich's and she came home exhausted! She did a lot of playing with Drew and Rich takes them on walks everyday. I'm sure she had a blast. I will be using Rich again!
Rich is great and my dog was well cared for. I will absolutely ask Rich to watch my dog in the future. Thanks!
Excellent as always.
Rich was very accommodating with drop off and pick up times.
Rich took great care of Wilson while we were away! He was one exhausted pup when he came home after going on long walks and playing during his dog vacay! Rich was very easy to work with and flexible about drop-off/pick-up!
My dog, Enzo, was comfortable and happy to stay with Rich. Much better than a kennel.
Rich is the best! We have been leaving our dog with him for several years now. It is so great to be able to go away and know your dog is in kind and capable hands!
We have used this website for the first time. After a long time, this is also first time for our pet to be outside his home..I read reviews before selecting Rich. He is a kinder person and made out pet comfortable. We will be using services again. Thank you.

Rich is great, friendly and accommodating and was flexible with our pick up and drop off timing. His house has a fenced in back yard and is close to conservation land. Rich is clearly a dog lover who treats his visiting pups with care. Sadie came home happy.

Rich was great - I felt instantly at ease with him, and knew that Bailey would be in good hands. Bailey came home happy and stress-free - Rich even brought him home to us when we got back. We would love for Bailey to visit Rich again in the future!
Rich was so patient with May. She came home relaxed and happy. Thank you Rich!
Rich is the best...
As usual, Rich was a great host for our dog. This is the second time we used him, and she loved it! She had lots of playtime with the other dogs, and enjoyed a few extra perks on her vacay. She always comes home exhausted! We would definitely use Rich again when we need to be away from our girl.

I'm really happy with the way Rich cares for dogs. He takes them for walks, and they stay with him in his apartment. I travel a lot for work, so Rich watches my dog quite a lot. It's really telling that my dog Sandy is always happy to see Rich.
We were extremely satisfied as I think Sampson was too! I am so happy we found someone like Rich that we can leave Sampson with instead of having to kennel him. I think he misses his friends he made during his visit. Can't wait for the next visit.
Rich is great with Toby..
Rich was great and very accommodating for a last minute trip.
Rich was great with our lab mix Winnie! He clearly loves dogs and really made her feel right at home. She got lots of exercise and had lots of dog friends to play with. Rich made all of us comfortable with leaving our baby, and was very flexible with drop off and pick up. We will definitely be using Rich again.

thank you Rich
We have a very stubborn little doggie and Rich takes wonderful care of her. We feel completely at ease knowing she is in such good hands.
Rich was very helpful with Tucker who needed to be given medicine twice a day and special meals. Tucker seemed to have a great time and was especially happy to go hiking nearby!
Chester's stay was fabulous. I don't think he wanted to come home. He got lots of attention as well as daily walks. My only hesitation in posting this review is that the next time we go to book Chester for an overnight there won't be any room! We will definitely want Chester to return as often as possible.

Rich is always fantastic. Spot loves staying with him.
Rich did a great job taking care of my dog. This is the.second time I have had his DogVacay services and I would willingly recomend him to any of my familly or friends. Rich is very dependable with taking care of my dog.
Rich displayed a great attitude and concern toward our dog. We felt very comfortable with him, as our dog did also. We would recommend him to others needing a dog sitter so they could get away doing what they needed to do.
Rich's place is truly big dog heaven! His back yard is tightly fenced, so dogs can play and frolic with abandon. He takes them for daily walks on nearby trails as well. Each of his 3 apartments have tenants who are large dog owners, so their dogs are often in his yard. They seem to be a happy, if sometimes rambunctious 4-legged crowd, and get on well together.
My dog happens to be small, in contrast, (but nonetheless mighty). Upon doing the meet and greet, I was so taken with Rich, his partner and their dog, who in turn, was so sweet and gentle with my dog, that I didn't quite absorb the extent of the large-dog ethic of the place. Rich's care and consideration made it all okay, and my Cairn terrier Eloise came through her 9-day stay happy and unscathed.
I found him to be conscientious and solicitous in regard to feeding and medication instructions, and he quickly answered the one email I sent asking how things were going. He's into the dog care thing, and does a good job. I recommend him.

Rich was fantastic. He made sure our dog was safe and had a great time, and he made the logistics incredibly easy for us. I wholeheartedly recommend Rich to other dog owners looking for a hassle-free, positive experience for themselves and their dogs.

Great dog environment for dogs who like to have the run of the house - and the yard! Safe environment. Easy to arrange drop-off and pick-up times.
Seems knowledgeable about dogs and maintains clean, attractive facilities.
Rich is a great host for the dogs. I've used him twice thus far and my dogs have a great time I'm sure. He's taken them for walks and given them plenty of attention.

His dog boarding setup at his house is very well done--it's obvious he's given dog boarding a lot of thought and has a lot of experience.
