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.

Meet & greet prior to booking great. Rich is responsive, knowledgable and enthusiastic. Drop-off and pick up easy. We enjoyed his daily texts and photos. Our pup clearly loved his vacay with Rich & his dog, Ava.
Finn had a great time with Rich and Ava. I will definitely use him again.
Rich is fantastic. He's easy to communicate with and Ringo loves him and his dog, Ava. Highly recommended!!
Rich was great! He was very friendly and flexible with scheduling. He was reliable in his communication and made us feel comfortable leaving our 5-month old Labradoodle. It sounded like our dogs got along well and they had a fun-filled day with long walks and time at the park. Our puppy came back happy, tired, and even bathed!! We are from out of town, but more visits to Portland are in our future and if we need daycare we'll definitely consider Rich again.

Rich was wonderful. We had to book him somewhat last minute and he was super responsive. It was our first time using a pet-sitter and knew our pup was in good hands. He gave us updates throughout the stay and our dog even wined a bit watching Rich walk away after I picked him up...which is a great sign that he was well cared for!

Rich is awesome. We dropped the pup off and she left with Rich without so much as a whimper (she is only 4 months old). I don't think she even looks back. Rich texted us pictures of her playing with the other dogs to reassure us she was doing ok. I can't say enough good things about Rich. Pawsome!

Where to begin? Excellent care!
I couldn't have trusted my dog to a more patient and animal loving person that had my dog's interest in mind throughout a long 7 day stay.
What is truly amazing to me is how socialized Oscar has become since staying with Rich. He now greets all the dogs happily, and loves his walks even more after the stay.
Great service and care.

Rich was a perfect fit for my pup!
Rich and Ava were amazing. Maddy had a fantastic time and I will definitely use Rich again. Thanks man!
This experience with Rich was a total A+. Rich was sensitive to Oscar's needs and in my opinion went beyond expectations for his care. We are booking again for a longer stay.
Rich and Ava were great! I have a small dog who can be very shy and Ava was so gentle and well behaved with her. Loved all the pictures.
