About Richard

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am available to take care of your dog in your home, so as not to disrupt your dog's routine and keep your dog in familiar surroundings. With this you can be rest assured that my presence at your home while you are away will also serve as a deterrent in your absence.

I have been around dogs all my life. I currently have a 11 year old beagle and a 3 year old yellow lab. I am also a volunteer with NorCal Beagle Rescue. Your dog will have my full attention while you are away.

I am also open to host your dog at our house upon a successful "Meet and Greet" with our two dogs first. I must insist on a "Meet and Greet" at least 7 days prior to booking a stay at my house, this is to ensure that if things don't work out, it will allow you to make other accommodations for your dog.

If you are not in need of pet setting, I also offer dog walking services.

I am very active. I love running and snow skiing.

Currently I am only able to watch only One (1) dog at my house.

Also please understand that I am not able to care for a dog that has not been fixed yet, thank you for your understanding.

Richard was great. Made both me and Athena feel very comfortable! We'll be back!
Richard and his wife have a lovely house and even a special fenced area just for the "guest" to hang with their two dogs. My pup Malcolm was quite nervous, but Richard was very attentive, and his wife won Malcolm over with special couch cuddle time. I was very impressed with their compassionate handling of Malcolm's anxiety and highly recommend them as dog caretakers.

Richard was great! Our dog, Sam, was happy and well cared for. Richard sent us frequent pictures of all Sam's activities and fun. A perfect first experience with Dog Vacay.
