About Rhian

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Dear dog owners, we are Rhian and Max; a friendly couple from the Cotswolds currently based in Silver Lake, LA.

I grew up on a farm with two big German shepherds (Eva and Elsa) who I miss enormously. In many respects they were like siblings to me, having personally trained and walked them myself.

When it comes to dog care, I have a practical and organized approach. I try to maintains a sense of routine between feeding, walking and resting so the dog will feel a sense of calm. Our apartment is bright, airy, clean and quiet. I play classical/ambient music and soft jazz radio throughout the day and dog guests appear to like it a lot.

We both travel often for work and in the interim we thought it would be an excellent idea to offer our services and sweet home as an inn to some extra special dog friends.

I have plenty of experience with big wolfy-dogs and puppies. Be rest assured, they will get plenty of walking activity around the reservoir and Bellevue park, as well as love, affection and a peaceful nights rest at the end of our bed.

We both lead an active and organic outdoors lifestyle and enjoy going on the quieter hiking trails in and around the canyons of Los Angeles.

Sincerely,
Rhian and Max

Rhian is one of the most fervent dog lovers I've met. She is such a wonderful caregiver. I love hearing stories of the dogs she grew up with over the pond. I would trust her with my firstborn:)

Rhian and Max’s cozy Silver Lake apartment is in a secure building with a fully enclosed outdoor social area.

Raised on a farm in the Cotswolds (England), Rhian helped care for the herding dogs and barnyard animals, and her best friends while growing up there were her German Shepherds.

She would love to take your pup on an early-morning walk up to Bellevue Park or around the Silver Lake Reservoir, and her evening routine often includes an urban hike through the hilly neighborhood streets.

They don’t currently have a dog of their own, so your pup will get that one-on-one attention you won’t find at the kennel. And since they have flexible schedules, Rhian and Max are able to provide your pooch with near-24/7 supervision and companionship!

Great experience. Very communicative. Easy to work with. Very helpful. Sent lots of pictures. Happy pup!
Whoo hoo my boy found another awesome host and place to vacay while I'm away. Rhian was very loving with my boy and he enjoyed her company immensely. She kept me updated with photos daily. Would definitely recommend if you want a bespoke experience for your pup.

Rhian and her husband are total gems. They go above and beyond the call of duty :) They send regular adorable pictures and updates. Upon my return, it was truly as if my pup had been on a restorative vacation! I HIGHLY recommend their loving household for your own pup.

Rhian and Max were so lovely and took the best care of our pup Max like he was their own. They kept us updated with pictures and texts and were very easy to communicate with. Max enjoyed his stay so much and will be returning to stay with them as soon as he gets the chance!

Rhian and Max were great. Ollie had a lovely time. He suffers from separation anxiety, but being with Rhian and Max totally made him feel calm. Thank you again to the both of them :)
Rhian was incredible! I feel so grateful to now have a dog sitter in LA! It's been an anxiety-ridden sort of process for someone who loves their puppies like children. :) The entire experience was seamless - from set up, to follow up, to pick up, the reassurance she provided during their stay, all the way to their drop off. I haven't had a chance to ask our pups yet - but I'm sure they'd say they can't wait to see her again. Thanks, Rhian!

Otis and Olive loved their stay at Rhian's! It was very easy to organize and Rhian was very understanding when I had a flight delay. I loved getting daily photo updates so I knew my doggies were in good hands. Definitely keeping Rhian in mind for future dog sitting!
