Love these two, and so does my dalmatian Snoopy. He's always running to their door and their kiddos are always excited to see Snoopy. Snoopy used to be so afraid of children and now he does great with them.
They are really nice, and it's great the puppy gets to be around kids. They are accomodating of early hour drop off.
Rick and Christine are awesome people with a very warm and loving family! Our little Miley Bear had such a blast with them despite it being her first time away from home. There was plenty of interaction and play with Rick and Christine's beautiful kids as well as with some of the other dogs they were watching at the time. They were very friendly and very accommodating and we never once felt worried or concerned about the well-being of our pup. If you're looking for a place to leave your beloved pet while you go away for a few days and want the very best kind of DogVacay for them, I would definitely recommend Rick and Christine! Thanks again for taking such good care of Miley!!
They were absolutely wonderful to work with. I received many messages and photos and knew that my dog Odie was well taken care of. We had a delay in travel and had to pick him up a day late and they were very accommodating to us. We will definitely use them in the future!
Will use again, they were great with our dogs.
They were very accommodating with the drop off and pick up times. Duke seemed to have enjoyed his stay with them.
Very nice people. Sent me pictures and felt me updated on how he was doing. Very happy with the care he received.
Casey had a wonderful time with Rick and Christine :) they kept me posted and sent tons of pictures showing how well she was doing. I have nothing but great things to say about Rick, Christine and the family :) I will definitely book with them in the future!!
Hosts were very accommodating with my drop off and pick up times. They also sent several pictures of both puppies playing each day. I look forward to using them again.
My dogs have stayed with Rick and Christine six times now. They are very accommodating with drop-off and pickup times, and the dogs seem to love staying with them and their kids. I highly recommend them.
Very friendly family. Anai was very excited to be there. I am very grateful to find wonderful place for my dog to stay while I'm away from home.
Rick and Christine did an excellent job of caring for Jake. I was quite satisfied.
Our dogs have stayed with Rick and Christine several times, and we couldn't be happier with the experiences. They are always available when we need to drop off and pickup the dogs, and the dogs seem to love staying with them. We highly recommend them!
This was Levi's second time staying with Rick and Christine. I was a bit nervous this time because we left him with a friend a few months ago and it did not go well. So I requested a meet and greet before hand. When we got to their house Levi went straight in and began sniffing around making himself at home. It eased my worries a lot seeing how comfortable he was being there. When I dropped him off the next day he was anxious to get out of the car. I won't be leaving him with anyone else. Thanks Rick and Christine so much for taking good care of Levi!
Maggie seemed to have a great time at Rick and Christine's house! They were very flexible when I had to change the drop off and pick up times. I will be using them again!
You were very flexible and I appreciate the last minute accommodation to extend Bailey's stay. I appreciate YOU!!!!
Rick & Christine were amazing with my furbabies! They sent me photos regularly and if I ever had a question they would respond back almost immediately.

The dogs get walked daily and Rick & Christine have a large backyard where the dogs can run free. I would definitely recommend these two pawtastic humans to watch your pups.
How Chris and Rick manage to juggle their cats and my large puppy is great and a testament to their creativity. She is very fond of cats but they are not of her! Thank you both for taking such good care of her.
My dog seemed really happy at Rick and Christine's house. They were very nice folks and sent a lot of photos and updates during my dogs' stay. We will be having our dog stay with them again on our next vacation!
Lola had a great time with Rick, Christine, and their girls! We got daily photos of her getting lots of love.
Eiger came back happy and tired! He clearly makes himself at home with Christine and Rick and their children. This is his second family and he runs to the door when we get to their house. I highly recommend them!
Paco had a super amazing time with Rick, Christine and the girls. He was treated like part of the family and came home relaxed and energetic (not stressed out). This has been the best boarding experience we've had since Paco came into our lives (9+ years).
We definitely recommend R&C, please call (or email) for references. 706.464.6462
Rick is awesome! He walks our 8 month old puppy, Whiskey about twice a week. Whiskey gets that needed break during the day, and is happy and cared for by Rick!
I regularly drop my dog off to Rick and Christine, because they not only do a great job watching him, but they are experienced dog owners who care. My dog runs to the door when we arrive, so I know that he loves going there! He has also done some overnights, and I love that he gets so much attention from the entire family. I highly recommend them and will use them again very soon.
We boarded our dogs here for a weekend after a meet & greet where we were told there was "always someone home". Upon return and picking up the dogs, we got home found one dog's paw pads were full of deep cuts and abrasions - turns out they had been locked in the laundry room for hours while the hosts were at church one the first day of sitting, and they scratched and clawed the entire time to try to get out. The dog also had apparent trauma to the top of her nose. Hosts did not tell us about the incident over the weekend or upon pickup, and the trauma and injuries resulted in a nearly $300 vet bill. We will absolutely never leave our dogs here again.
Thank you!
My dog was well behaved and had a great time I was told by Rick. I will certainly use their services again and will recommend my family and friends to this place for sure.
Our dog Casper stayed with their family for two nights and they did a wonderful job with him! We usually bring Casper with us on trips so we were nervous about leaving him but he was in great hands and we even got picture updates of him with their family. He came home tired and happy.
Exc. as usual thanks!
Rick and Christine are good hosts. We are very grateful that their family is so sweet and loving to our fur-babies and that they're available regularly.
Very Nice couple. I got my dog back in one piece and she seemed happy. They also sent me pictures several times. Thanks Christine and Rick
Jake was happy and fit, no problems as usual.
Well done and no problems. As usual.
Excellent. No problems, Happy pup when I got home!
I was very satified with the care, love and attention my dog recieved while she stayed with Rick and Christine. Rick and Christine treated my dog Lemon like she was their own which I loved. I also loved that anytime I would text Rick or christine and ask how Lemon was doing they were very fast in responding with updates and even sent pictures. When I picked up my dog she seemed very happy and fell asleep almost as soon as she got home. Considering my dog has a lot of energy she must have played a lot while she was there and had a really good time. I feel so fortunate to have found Rick and Christine and will try to make reservations with them in the future if needed.
Marbles had a great time playing with the Host's children. He got a great deal of play time.
I needed someone to care for my 16 mo. old 108lb German Shepard. pup that is very over active on very short notice. Christine and her family responded fast and did an excellent job. I wonder if Jake even knew I was gone.
My puppy had so much fun playing with their dogs (especially their puppy) and having a family to be with all day. I would highly recommend Christine to friends and will use again!
Christine and her family did a great job watching our Shiba Inu, Shayla Marie! Shayla had a fabulous time playing with their 9 month old lab Mazy, and their Kids! Christine kept me updated by text message constantly and sent me tons of pictures of my dog while she stayed with them! She even dropped her off at the parking lot where our car was so we didn't have to drive further to pick her up! Overall I would highly recommend Christine and her family! The only sad part is they are no longer in Port Orchard!
