About Rich

My wife and I are very active and enjoy the company of dogs. We have a decent size backyard that is fenced in, and perfect for the dogs to run around and get exercise. Further, we are in close proximity to a few parks such as Norristown Farm Park and Valley Forge Park, where we often take our own dog for long walks. We currently have a 2 year-old Shiba Inu that is full of engery, loves to play, and is extremely friendly with other dogs.

We have been members of Dog Vacay since October 2013, so we have learned a few things. We prefer to watch small to medium dogs. Our dog is 20 pounds and larger dogs are a little too much for her to handle. Also, we prefer only to watch one dog at a time. This way they will get as much love and attention as possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

We were very happy with Rich. Nox came home happy and healthy and we could tell she had fun!
Bella was so happy and well cared for during her stay with Rich....she's already going back again!! Thank you.
Brownie had a great time.
My husband and I were knew to the area and had never used a dog sitting service before so we were very nervous. Rich and his wife were very friendly and instantly made us feel better about the situation. Our Rocky and Maya must have been very well taken care of because they came home very happy and worn out from play time with the other dogs. We are so pleased and can't wait to book again. It is such a relief knowing your fur babies will be taken care of by someone who cares for them the way you do!

Maxwell recognized Rich's house from the Meet & Greet and couldn't wait to go into the house and see Rich's dogs again. He didn't mind that we left. I'm sure he had a blast with his new buddies. I would definitely use Rich again and recommend him to others.

A very pleasant and calm family for our pet with a large fenced in yard. I would definitely recommend Rich.
We were concerned about using DV for the first time for our dog, but all was well.
Rich was cordial and accommodating with our communications and the meet & greet, and flexible with our drop-off and pick-up times.
We feel like we could do this again w/o worries.

Cody had a great time with Rich and Melissa and their dogs! Rich and Melissa are so easy to work with and were very accommodating when we needed to extend the stay by a couple of days. We will definitely be coming back!
We contacted Rich through Dogvacay when we needed someone to watch or dog Marley last minute. Our "regular" host was unavailable. Rich was very quick to respond and accepted our reservation. Marley spent the weekend and was well cared for. He came home exhausted after spending the weekend chasing his new buddies around the yard. We will definitely use Rich in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great sitter for their dog while they are away!!!

Rich and Melissa are wonderful hosts and took excellent care of Cody. They even offered to drop him off at another sitter for the last few days, as they were going out of town and were unavailable for those days. We will be returning for more stays! Cody has a great time there with their dogs.

Finley came home a very tired and happy girl. We will definitely ask Rich and Melissa for future "doggie vacations" for Finley!
Brit seems to love staying with them and we hope they had as much fun as he did. Thanks again for a wonderful experience and providing a comfortable safe place for him to stay while we vacay!
I cannot say enough good things about these wonderful people. I left Kiko there for 2 weeks and they did a wonderful job of caring for him and giving him love. He came home very healthy and happy. (although very sad to be taken away from his new bud Saki.)
I recommend Melissa and Rich in a heart beat. I wouldn't even think twice. They are accommodating and they send you pictures and updates. I always worry when I leave kiko with someone but as long as I have them, I wont worry anymore:)

We left for vacation and felt the dog was well cared for and seemed to adjust well. We are happy with the experience and will feel relaxed when Codi returns for our next vacation.
very accommodating last minute booking! great house and yard.
I was initially nervous to leave Tags in a new and unfamiliar situation, however, from the first meet and greet with the Rich, Melissa & Saki, I knew I had found a warm and relaxed family to care for my dog. Their house was great, very dog centered, and Tags acted as if he had been there before, he made his self right at home! I will definitely request Rich, Melissa & Saki again.

Rich and Melissa were a great choice for our dog Lucy. She played with their dog, as well as the other visitor they were hosting at the time and came home exhausted! Just what I was hoping for and couldn't have asked for better treatment of Lucy. Thanks again guys!

This was the first time we used Dogvacay and we could not be more pleased with the way things worked out. They made this a very pleasant experience for my wife and I. They also were extra kind in letting our beloved Brit feel right at home! We were also happy to know that he made a good impression on Rich and his wife (sorry forgot your name) and Sochi. My wife and I would be delighted to leave Brit with them in the future. Thank you for making this a pleasant experience!

Rich and Melissa were great! After I picked up my dog in the morning, she slept for the entire 6 hour drive up to New York, so she must have been worn out from a fun sleepover. Highly recommend!
Rich, his wife and their dog were great with Teya. No reservations about having her stay with them again (if they'd have her!).
Arya seemed to have a very good time with Rich, his wife and Saki. It was quite obvious during the meet and greet itself that Arya would feel at home there. I would highly recommend them and plan using their services in December when I go for a longer trip.

Our dog Molly had a fantastic experience with Rich, Melissa & Saki. They have a huge fenced in backyard where Molly and Saki enjoyed each other’s company and were able to run around and tire eachother out. Rich and Melissa were kind enough to send us photos and updates via text without prompting so any worries we had were quickly put at ease. Rich and Melissa were always quick with responses too. We would definitely use Rich and Melissa again as their house and their personalities are a perfect match for our young puppy Molly. Can’t say enough good things about them!
