About Richard

Our goal is to provide a genuine family experience for your dog. While with us, they will be part of all our family's activities; receiving all the love and attention we would give our own dog. This is why we accept so few dogs and how we can offer constructive and loving attention for your dog throughout the entire day.

We only keep 3 dogs maximum* on our property. Our dog, your dog(s), and sometimes 1 other. So your dog will get practically one-on-one attention, at least 2 walks per day, and play with our family of 5. We have two daughters that are 10 and 14 years old, and our dog PAC which is 3 years old. My 14 year old daughter walks dogs in the neighborhood and takes care of a neighbor's elderly dog.

We live in a dog-friendly neighborhood with large grassy areas and a walking path to the creek and adjacent neighborhood. We have a very large fenced back yard with plenty of room for play. Your dog can run to a sprint or lounge and sunbathe on the deck. We offer sunny and shaded areas and frequent changing of water.

Indoors, your dog will similarly have plenty of room for play and wonderfully comfortable sofas and chairs to lounge and nap on. Our Portuguese Water Dog will play as much as your dog likes. He is very well trained by us, and great with other dogs regardless of age and size. He'll snuggle with your little dog or wrestle with your big one.

My wife and I both work from home (she is part-time and I am full-time). While someone is home most all of the time, there may be 1-3 hour periods of time where we might need to leave for errands or short family outings. In many instances, and if okay with you & your doggie, we would bring your doggie with us.
For super large dogs over 80 lbs there is an extra charge depending on age, breed, and temperament.

We welcome your doggie to Doggie Suite! The love, warmth, and constructive loving attention of our family setting makes a difference.

*There are times that we will accept 1 extra dog for a total of 4, including ours. This would depend on whether we feel the dogs will be a good match for each other, and also on your doggie’s temperament and breed. If there are 3 dogs in your family, we would care for all three (please ask about our discounts for multiple dogs). In short, always feel free to shoot us an inquiry even though our calendar shows that we are “booked”.

One of our best hosts ever!
Richard was fantastic about keeping the reservation a secret from my husband (as the plans for the evening were secret). He also adapted quickly to our dogs' changed diet. A fantastic visit, as always!
Richard and his family are the best! Our beagle Bella can be a handful at times, lol. She had a great time and clearly loved being at their home. We will definitely be using Richard again when we need a caring family to look after our Bella. 5-Stars!
