About Ryan

My wife and I are happy to take care of whatever services your dog needs on the weekend when you're busy. I love dogs and decided to finally get my own after a few great DogVacay hosting experiences. Nala, our golden-doodle, is very friendly with other dogs and always happy to have playmates.

Our apartment is mostly hardwood and has a roof deck area as well. We usually keep the main area open, but close doors to extra bedrooms and bathrooms to avoid mishaps. There's a spiral staircase that can be tricky for dogs who aren't used to stairs (so please let us know if your pup isn't used to stairs).

Unless otherwise needed/noted we typically go for about 4 walks a day of 20-30 minutes each and then love to play with pups inside or up on the roof deck. We're just off Burling street which has a good number of dog owners so encountering other friendly pups is commonplace.

I had dogs growing up as did my fiance, my first dog was a cockapoo and our second was/is a 8yr. old labradoodle named Magik that now lives with my parents in New Jersey. Due to our current work situations we're out of town during the week frequently so I can often only dog sit on weekends (Friday-Sunday Night), but if you need to go out of town for a wedding or other event I look forward to meeting your best friend and looking after him/her as if he/she was my own.

Ryan lives with his partner on the North Side of Chicago in a top-floor apartment. They have elevator access just in case your pup isn't great at climbing stairs. They have a wonderful space with hardwood floors and a comfy couch. Ryan also has personal experience with dog training and has an easy-going personality that would help guests feel at-ease. Ryan was sad to leave his family dog at home, so he would be excited for the opportunity to watch and bond with yours.
Ryan was super responsive when we made the reservation. Kitteh clearly had a wonderful time at their house! I'd highly recommend Ryan.
Chief seemed to have a great time! Ryan and Courtney were very accommodating, flexible with pick-up and drop-off times, and kept us updated with messages and pictures throughout the weekend. We will definitely keep them in mind for our next trip. Thanks again!!
Ryan was a great dog host and really came through with a last minute request. He was communicative and responsive and Barney seemed to have a blast! I'd highly recommend him for dog boarding.
