About Ryan

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My day revolves around your pets! I am home 24/7 so you know your dogs will get plenty of love and attention. I am a UC Davis graduate and a California credentialed teacher that loves dogs. They will be frequently walked and have lots of play time both outdoors and indoors (especially during the summer), and definitely enjoy their time here. I welcome all dogs as long as they are people friendly, dog friendly and neutered/spayed.

Ryan is very pleasant to work with. He helped me out with my dog when I had to extend 1 more day due to a family emergency. He seemed compassionate with the dogs, esp Lucy. Thanks Ryan!
Ryan has been a true godsend. The care he provided for my Tabitha was above and beyond what I expected. Ryan showed a genuine concern and caring for my dog. He reflected patience, understanding, and affection towards Tabby. I felt my dog was in a very warm and safe environment.
I fully recommend Ryan as a dog sitter!
Thank you Ryan!!!!

When I open the door to the car to let the dogs out they run right up to the door of Ryan's house. They jump all over him and pretty much forget that I'm even there. To see them so happy is a huge endorsement for Ryan. It's a huge relief not worry about them while I'm away. Wish I could give a bad review so he doesn't get too busy to take them next time.

This was an easy, enjoyable experience. Our dog was happy and we knew she was having fun. Ryan is easygoing and friendly. He responds quickly to emails. Great service!
We are regular clients of Ryan's; I just checked and my pup, Casey Jones just completed his 14th stay with him. Casey's visits have ranged from 1-13 days and each and every time he has had a true vacation. I am so pleased to have found this amazing boarding experience for my little guy as I travel a fair bit for work. I very much appreciate the care and love that Ryan shows Casey. Casey gets lots of attention, lots of great exercise and gets to spend time with other dogs. Casey is a bit of a quiet little guy and Ryan is always attentive and makes the situation a positive one. When we arrive at Ryan's house Casey is always eager to see Ryan and he's happy to be there. That pretty much says it all in my book. Thank you, Ryan! I don't know what we would do without you!

Our dog first staying experience with Ryan was positive, we felt he is in good hand though we are away from him.
Ryan is really something special with animals. I was initially nervous about leaving Molly for the weekend but Ryan explained how he builds a relationship with each and every pet and earns their trust. By the end of the first day Molly was enjoying some runs in the park with Ryan. He never delayed any response to us, sent pictures, and was really specific on how our Molly was doing. He wouldn't reply with just, "she's good" he would tell us, "she's doing better today, I feel I've earned more trust with her." Ryan is a true animal lover. He also accommodated our early drop off time (I think we showed up at his house at about 630 am to catch an 8 am flight). He allowed us to stay as long as we wanted until we felt comfortable leaving her with him. Overall, Ryan is knowledgeable about animals, passionate about them, prompt in responses, he cares, and as a person I vibed really well with his personality.

Ryan's the genuine article-a true dog person. He loves dogs and he GETS dogs, you know?! He looked after our two minimally-trained boys for just over a week and immediately got a sense of both of their temperaments, adapting to their nearly-opposite needs. In fact, he was unhesitating in his willingness to take them on in the first place, even with their particularities (or perhaps those are mine). He's that rare combination of both laid back and sharply attentive. He also managed to take some fabulous action shots while giving our dogs more exercise than they get with us, and to see how tired and happy they were...well, suffice it to say, I'm certain that this is the first time they enjoyed a true vacation while being boarded.

Ryan made sure our large and energetic dog had plenty of exercise and kept us updated with photos. She also benefitted from having buddies to play with. We have already rebooked and highly recommend him.
We boarded our dog Welly for a week with Ryan while on a 3-week vacation. This was our first time boarding Welly, and it was a positive experience. We appreciated and enjoyed the photos he sent to us of Welly on walks (runs) in the park. Also, Ryan made a special effort to transfer Welly to his foster care mom at the end of the week; she cared for him until we returned. It is clear that Ryan is good with dogs, and that Welly had a good time staying with Ryan.

Cannot believe I forgot to rate the second part of Bailey's stay with Ryan. I really appreciated Ryan's willingness to work with us when we needed to extend Bailey's stay. Bailey had a great time at his house!
Ryan is always a pleasure to work with, even helping out on a holiday on short notice. I've seen him walking other dogs in the neighborhood, so I know they get a good walk.
It's always difficult leaving your baby with a stranger. This wasn't the case with Ryan, my dog Cooper was in good hands. I left Cooper with Ryan for 7 days. Ryan always communicated with me and sent pictures of Cooper smiling and having a blast. Thanks so much Ryan!!! You're my new go to guy!!!

This was our new rescue's first over-night and it couldn't have gone better! Ryan is an excellent caretaker. I learned so much as a new dog owner from Ryan and appreciate that he shares his knowledge of dogs and their behaviors. We love our updates and pictures as well!

We are so thankful for Ryan! He is a strong "pack leader" and absolutely wonderful with our human-dependent dog. Our dog gets walks, lots of love, and is returned to us happy and tuckered out from a great VaCay! Ryan is incredibly flexible with pick-up/drop-off times. I am at peace when I leave our "family member" with Ryan, as I know he is in confident, capable hands! Thank you Ryan!

Ryan watched my lab and beagle on short notice for a weekend. This was their first time staying with Ryan and they had a blast. He sent pics of them out on walks and playing in the park. Ryan understands dogs and will adjust the activities based on your dogs comfort level. Highly recommend.

Ryan exceeded our expectations which were very high in light of previous reviews.
Our puppy had a great time both stays and was tired out its hard to find people to care for your animals but he put our worries at ease.
Ryan was great! My dog made a mess right when she walked in the door, I was embarrassed, he didn't even blink and said "don't worry about it, that's part of the job, I'm constantly cleaning." All the other dogs were about the same size as mine and they seemed to all be happy, playing and got along right away with our dog. Ryan sent pictures of her clearly having a good time. When we picked her up, she was no dirtier than when we left her and was not particularly rushing to come home :) Great experience - will definitely use again!

Ryan was all set up & ready for drop off & pick up. I wasn't sure how our dog would do with other dogs but Ryan made it easy for us & our dog. You could tell he really enjoys what he does and can read the dogs personalities to beat deal with them individually & in a group. We received photo updates and we could tell our dog really had a good stay. Would recommend him to anyone!

Ryan was AWESOME! Perfect house and yard for dogs. He was extremely attentive and affectionate towards Nahko and the other dogs he was watching. Nahko had a blast and came home worn out, which we love :). We'll definitely be using Ryan again in the future and would recommend him to anyone looking for a dogsitter.

Ryan is awesome, he truly cares about dogs. He made sure our boy had fun and was cared for. I will be asking Ryan to watch our dog again.
Ryan was great!! Maddie is a little shy and he was wonderful about assimilating her to the new environment. He kept me up to date with texts and pictures to let me know Maddie was doing well!! Maddie will be a returning guest the next time the need arises! Thanks again, Ryan.

Ryan is fantastic with dogs. Our rescue pup Nala has been with him for two stays and it went very well. He was really good at making her comfortable and socializing her, and he updates with photos and messages about how the stay is going. Thank you Ryan!

Ryan took awesome care of our dogs. He is a dog lover and his place was geared for their care. I would recommend him!
Ryan is a great guy and you can tell he absolutely loves dogs. I felt totally comfortable leaving my frenchie with him.
It was her first time boarding with anyone and she was nervous but he took extra care of her to make her feel comfortable.
I will definitely leave her with him again in the future because I know she will be well cared for.

We needed a last minute dog sitter and Ryan was available to watch our 1 year old dog. Our Pup had a blast and Ryan sent pictures to let us know he was doing great.
Fabulous! Ryan was great with my dog Hank. I was Gone for 11 days and worried about leaving a pup for so long; Hank got so much exercise and had so much fun with Ryan that I'm not sure he wanted to come home ;) highly recommend Ryan!!!!
We will be boarding our pups with Ryan again in the future. He was terrific!!
We had a last minute need to extend Bailey's stay, which Ryan readily accommodated. It was such a relief to know she didn't have to be placed with someone else at the last minute. Thank you, Ryan!
Ryan was so patient and kind with us...we were nervous leaving Bailey because she's just a pup, but she warmed up to him right away. Ryan encouraged us to just hang out until we were comfortable. It's clear that dogs love him. He even took her for her first walks! I was so touched when he said her first walk was just for 5 houses, because she's so little, he didn't want to wear her out! She was super excited to see us when we picked her up, but had to run back to kiss Ryan good bye! Thank you, Ryan. You are a very kind man.

Ryan F took good care of my German Shepherd Dog. He sent pictures and took him for walks. I would definitely book with him again. Thanks Ginger
Ryan is awesome! My dog hates to leave and is very bored back at home... It's a good thing I travel a lot because she loves to go back...

I feel totally comfortable leaving her with Ryan for long periods of time. He handles all dogs with sensitivity and love.

I have a very picky dog who is more a person than an outside pet, she LOVED being with Ryan and I loved being able to enjoy my vacation and not worry!
I would 100% suggest you use Ryan. Kai plated with the other dogs, and I wouldn't hesitate using Ryan again on my next venture.
I went to Maui and Kai stayed with him for a whole week. Looking for a great place? Look no further!
Thanks Ryan much Mahalo!

Ryan is very knowledgable about dogs and totally loves them. Our dog was so loved and happy when we were gone. When we picked him up he was happy to see us but was also playing and happy. We will be return customers for sure. Thank you!
Ryan was quick to respond, friendly and accommodating. My two pups ran right in and made themselves at home - and they both seemed very happy when I picked them up.
Ryan was awesome! Extremely flexible and kept me updated with daily pics.
Ryan took great care of our dogs and sent us many pictures of them while we were away. I would highly recommend him!
I was a little hesitant to use dogvcay; but Ryan was amazing! We received photo updates as well as text messages during our pups stay. Ryan is very responsible and easy to communicate with. The dogs really get a lot of attention with him and we will definitely use him again in the future! So lucky to have found this site and Ryan altogether!

Ryan was amazing - he sent me updates on how Bistec was doing, gave him his medication, and seriously tired him out. I've never had my dog fall asleep in the car before until we picked him up from Ryan's. Definitely recommended and will use him again.
Read More...
Ryan was awesome. He sent updates with pictures and how my dog was doing each day without being asked. We didn't have cell coverage so when we would drive and get some just for a moment to be able to have an update with photos of the baby made the trip so much more enjoyable knowing he was happy and okay. He gave him medication he happen to be on at the time and was patient and kind, even with a nervous pet parent giving a lot of information. Zeus looked great and seemed happy when we picked him up. I was very glad we took him to Ryan.

Ryan did a great job, kept us updated the entire time and our dogs really enjoyed their time there!
I couldn't be happier with Ryan and my two dogs visit with him. The dogs came home happily worn out from the playing and walks. I received pictures daily, I think they may have enjoyed their vacation more than I enjoyed mine! I will definitely be bringing them here again!

Ryan is an awesome guy and took great care of Growler. He definitely has a deep love for animals and it shows. I would absolutely recommend Ryan to anyone looking for a dog sitter.
Ryan was a great host! He insured that the doggy guests were compatible. He was easy to communicate with and kept us up to date with pictures and texts on how our dog was doing. His location is central and easy to get to. Would highly recommend.
Great
Our pup was wonderfully exhausted when he came home. Ryan regularly sent us pictures documenting all the fun our boy was having with his newfound 4 legged buddies. Excellent first experience for us. Would recommend Ryan to others.
Ryan was great with Mandy. You can tell he is a real animal lover and Mandy had a great Dogvacay while with him!
You are an awesome host and have been very helpful! Thank you for watching our pup!
My dog Happy came home better behaved than ever! She loved socializing with the other dogs and now is content being an only child again. Ryan made sure she got lots of exercise. I can tell she was handled with love. I'll be bringing her again soon! :-)

We're already planning on another stay with Ryan.
Ryan was easy to connect with, he was very responsive and friendly from the get go. We scheduled almost last minute and he still made time to come for meet & greet! Both of our pups were very relaxed with Ryan after a few initial barks. Highly recommend!

Ryan took great care of Rambo, he kept us updated with photos and messages throughout his stay, would definitely recommend!
Ryan is great. My dog has some trust and anxiety issues, and he really took the time to form a bond with her. He took her on runs, to the park, and she got to interact with other dogs. He sends lots of pictures and updates which is great. We will definitely be using him again!

Ryan was very welcoming and even knew a bit about our breed of dog (Basset Hounds). He took care of our three darlings. I loved that he sent us pictures and a note about how they were doing. They were well exhausted when they got home - the puppy slept for 2 days!

Ryan was understanding to our dog needs. There is lots of room for the dogs to move about, and the area is clean. the yard is a big plus.
Our dog is a high energy yellow lab who loves to catch balls. Ryan was able to take him for daily runs, walks, and ball sessions. Ryan was awesome! Additionally, our dog had a problem with demand barking and whining but Ryan patiently trained him out of the habit. We will definitely utilize Ryan's services again.

Ryan is amazing & provided a safe, loving home environment for our Jeeper & Jett girls overnight. We love Ryan but more important our dogs love Ryan. He took them on walks & had other pups for play pals. The pictures he sent are adorable & the smiles on their faces says it all. He really is the new dog whisperer! We are so happy to be able to leave our girls & not worry at all. This was our first experience with Ryan & we will be regulars from now on. So happy to know we will be able to go on our 12 day vacation & our girls will be safe & happy with him.
Thank you DogVacay & Ryan what a great experience!
Nancy, Doug, Jeeper & Jett

Excellent care provided, and the pictures were adorably happy on the dogs' part. I would definitely use them again.
I found Ryan after moving into Roseville and liked what I read from previous dog owners. Ryan EXCEEDED by all accounts his ability to take care of our basset hound, Lucy!! While we were gone for the week we received daily updates and photos and I could tell Lucy was having a great time. We will definitely be using Ryan again...so glad we found him!

Ryan was awesome! He sent lots of pics, took her on walks so she would feel comfortable with him (she is a shy girl), and took very good care of my pup. It is obvious he has a love of animals and I felt comfortable leaving her with him. Thank you, Ryan, for everything.

Hi Ryan! Thank you for taking care of Brie and Schubert. We, including the pups are looking forward to their next stay with you. we drop them off around 6pm?
Ryan took great care of Ozzy! It was Ozzy's first time to be away from home and Ryan took extra care to make Ozzy feel comfortable. He communicated with us regularly and sent pictures of Ozzy. I'm thankful to know that we have someone we can trust to care for Ozzy when we need to be away. We will definitely request Ryan for any future needs. I highly recommend Ryan to anyone who desires a great environment and care giver for their dog.

Lacey had a great time with Ryan. He sent us daily updates and took wonderful care of her. When we picked her up, she even cried as he walked away! We would recommend Ryan to anyone.
Ryan took such good care of my Tara who can sometimes be a little "terror". I had a last minute trip and he gladly took her for the day, even though he had to take her a little early in the morning. I appreciate him being able to accommodate my schedule. I loved getting the pictures of her on her daily adventures and she was a tuckered out pup when she came home. Really glad to have someone who loves animals who is just a few miles away. Thanks Ryan!!!

We looked at different options for our dog to stay while we were on vacation. Ryan seemed to be the best pick and we were very lucky that we found him. He even let me drop off Feynie for a few hours so they got to know each other before we left. He sent us updates and pictures every day and that made our vacation a lot more relaxing. I am sure our dog had a good time and we for sure will use Ryan again.

Ryan took wonderful care of our Jazzy! He had her for 6 days and she had a blast. Ryan took her on multiple walks a day, they played a lot and she got to play with new doggie friends she made at his house. He sent us pictures and notes a couple times a day to let us know how she was doing. Although we brought her crate over in case Ryan needed it, Jazzy was not crated or caged up at all the entire stay. She is even better at her potty training after staying with him. My kids and I were a little nervous since this was the first time boarding her but we knew she was in good hands and the updates kept us at ease.

I already have booked him again for our next week long vacation and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a safe and happy experience for their dog.

Ryan was great. We had to change our reservation about a week ahead and he was totally cool with that. Our dog Ryder seemed to have a great time and Ryan sent us photos almost every day. We are definitely going to use Ryan again.
This is the second time I've left my "Annie" with Ryan. I was very happy with his work the first time. This time, she knew where she was going and walked right inside his home. There were 4-5 other dogs this time and she still walked right in. This is a shy dog but with Ryan she is at ease. He walks them several times a day so the level of tension is never in question. He sent pictures every day showing what Annie was doing so I wouldn't suffer from tension. I would recommend Ryans services to anyone who asks.

Ryan was awesome; our 14 year old Miniature Italian Greyhound has special needs and he had a great vacay with Ryan while we were away. We highly recommend Ryan and we are planning to use him again in the future.
I have a rescue dog who is shy and not confident with strangers. I had two trips, one for 4 days and another for 11 days for which I was looking for a good boarding option. I found Ryan's profile and thought he might be just what I was looking for. We scheduled a meet and great and I had a very good feeling about him. My fur baby, Casey Jones seemed quite comfortable with Ryan and his brother and I decided to book reservations with them. I am one of those somewhat over-protective dog parents and I will say that I think these have been the best boarding experiences that we have had ever. Ryan is amazingly thoughtful and his love of dogs shows in the way he cares for them. Casey got multiple walks, play time with fetching, and lots of companionship each day. Ryan sent me photos and updates daily and I was so relieved and happy during my travels that Casey was in such good hands. I feel very fortunate to have found Ryan and thank him and his brother (and Bob the cat) for being such fantastic hosts! Casey truly had an awesome vacation while I was away :-)

Ryan was great, seemed to really enjoy taking care of Socks. Sent me daily pictures and updates, which was reassuring. She was healthy and happy after 5 days of doggie vacay.
Ryan is a great dog sitter! He took care of both our Dachshund and Doberman and I could tell they had a blast. You can tell he really cares about your pups! Thanks Ryan!
I wanted to meet Ryan before just leaving Annie with him. We talked and walked on one of the trails he uses to exercise dogs in his care. Annie loves walks so that's a big plus. Ryan sent pictures everyday so my blood pressure wouldn't blow a vein, you probably get stressed about your pets also. Annie actually played with other dogs ( and their toys). She is my rescue dog who was isolated all her life and wasn't comfortable around people or other dogs. Looks like my 9 year old dog is growing up and is enjoying their company. We have to travel again in Nov. so we will certainly ask Ryan to watch Annie on her next doggy Vacay.

I just had my dog Zeus stay with Ryan and his brother this past week. I couldn't be happier with how amazing they were with him. I met Ryan prior for a meet and greet because of course some of us can relate to how difficult it is leaving our fur babies with someone we just met. Right away I knew Zeus would be spoiled, safe, taken care of and most of all I could actually enjoy and relax on my vacation. Ryan sent me pictures every day updating me on how Zeus was doing. He exercised him several times and seemed to devote his entire week to Zeus and making him happy. I couldn't wait to see my puppy when I came back and went to pick him up. It made me so happy seeing how comfortable Zeus had become with both Ryan and his brother. I actually felt bad taking him home and could see how much both the guys would miss him.
I've met a few sitters before on dogvacay while everyone seems nice I found Ryan to be perfect for Zeus. First because you truly can tell how much he loves and cares for animals. Second he only watches one dog at a time unless they are of course the same family. My dog gets along great with other dogs however I myself was not comfortable with some sitters having several dogs of all size. While Zeus was able to play with other dogs during his stay the fact that Ryan had only Zeus stay with him made me feel 100% comfortable . So if you are looking for an amazing sitter you can count on Ryan and know that your dog will be taken care of extremely well.
