About Rich

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Need someone local to help take care of your little one while you're out of town? I'm here to help! My name is Rich and I have years of experience with socializing, training, and caring for active and laid-back dogs alike.

If you can't already tell, dogs are family to me. It has given me incredible joy learning how to communicate with them and trying to understand their wants and needs through body language and cues. Going on walks, the training process and active playing are therapeutic for me just as much as them!

Right now I work at a dog-friendly creative agency a few blocks away from my nice one-bedroom apartment just one block away from The Fields dog park in the Pearl District. I take my herding dog with me every day where she comes to meetings and plays with the other dogs off-leash to the amusement of my dog-loving coworkers -- if this sounds right for your pup they will be supervised and coddled 24/7! Otherwise, I have no problems working from home and having them just chill out with me in the apartment.

Our building, where your pup will be sleeping and lounging, is also incredibly dog-friendly. I'm situated on the ground floor overlooking our courtyard with my own large patio. The building has a dedicated doggy washroom as well.

**Dogs that stay 4+ nights get a free dog wash!**

Ava herself is a super playful, active and loving dog. With her coming to work with me she gets 4+ walks, lots of playtime and tons of affection from others throughout the day. By the time we get home she's incredibly tired (which says a lot given her high-energy) and best of all, happy, which is my goal for all pups in my care.

My dog loves staying with Rich! Will be using him again for sure!
This was the first time leaving my pup, Chance, with someone other than friends/family - so I was definitely nervous. Rich made me feel comfortable before we met and even more so throughout the weekend with pics and updates - letting me know how Chance was behaving, the # of walks he was going on, etc. The best part of this for Chance is being able to work on his socialization with Rich and his dog, Ava. It's something Chance doesn't get enough of in his day to day, but I could definitely see an impact after a couple of days of playtime with another pup - as well as work Rich did on listening and patience. So, thanks to a great first experience, they are now stuck with Chance and he will be returning this weekend!

Rich was great! He was super flexible on drop off/pick up time after I was delayed. He provided thorough updates each day on how Roger was doing and what kind of fun he was up to. My dog received a lot of attention, play time and walks! I'd definitely have Rich watch him again and would fully recommend him!
