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 maintain 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.

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!
Rhian was fantastic. My pup was exhausted and happy upon his return. Rhian send many photo updates and kept in touch throughout his stay.
Rhian was so great! She truly loves dogs and sent me so many pictures of Lola during her stay. Her partner Max is also wonderful (they both stayed here for 2 nights while I was away). I was very nervous beforehand as this was my first time using DogVacay for an overnight. But Rhian totally calmed me as soon as I met her. She's very organized, professional, personable, and kind. I would definitely recommend her and will be using her again! Thanks Rhian and Max!
luna was the luckiest girl in the world the week she stayed with Rhian and Max. subsequently, i was the luckiest girl, too, as i knew she was well taken care of. they kept sending me photos throughout the week and i swear she was on a spa vacation. she came home relaxed and not stressed. i cant say enough good things about them. i will definitely use them in the future and i know luna will miss them until the next time
