About Rick

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My wife and I are the proud parents of two rescue dogs, Dexter and Roxie, both ~15 lb Chihuahua mixes, which we have had for six years and four years respectively. They are friendly, quiet, and love other dogs.

My wife and I have both had dogs all our lives of various breeds, and we have lots of experience training dogs with positive reinforcement. While we lived in Santa Barbara, we regularly volunteered at the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter with the K-9 Pals Program, where we walked and fed many dogs. We got such joy out of helping dogs in need, but we wanted to take all of them home with us! That's why we think DogVacay is a great option for us: we get to take care of dogs without owning a pack!

My wife and I work locally, but we are off on the weekends, and would love to have some extra furry friends on the weekend. We keep a clean and safe home for dogs. We also have lots of toys and treats around to keep them occupied and happy. We love to take the dogs out for walks 2-4 times per day around our beautiful, grassy neighborhood. We keep poop bags stocked at home, so these do not have to be provided. Also, if your pup is older or has decreased mobility, our building has an elevator that we may use to take your dog our for walks. If your dog doesn't like elevators, there is a small staircase (maybe 6 stairs) leading outside.

While we love dogs of all shapes and sizes, we are only accepting small dogs under 30 pounds at this time, since we live in a condo.

Pets are allowed on the furniture at our house.

However, we ask that you bring your dog's bed or crate for overnight stays. We think this will make your dog feel much more comfortable and at home. Also, please bathe your dog prior to his or her stay. Please let us know about any special needs, medications, or care that your dog(s) requires.

We look forward to meeting your furry friend!
