About Richard

38 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*I do travel often so please inquire if I'm available for the time required before submitting a request.*

I do photography and media editing from home so your pet will get 24/7 supervision. I only take pets from one owner at a time so no worrying about other animals. My condo is two blocks from a great little dog park, and walking distance to a lot of green areas. I also get out to the mountains for hiking quite a bit, let me know if your pup would be up for that. Unfortunately I cannot take Pitbulls or XXL breeds in my building but I might be able to watch them in yours if it works with my schedule.

Cat vacay friendly too.

It was very easy to communicate with Richard and he sent us plenty of pictures and videos while taking care of Chicago. Also he was very flexible with the pick up time.
Rick is our go-to sitter, and our Cavalier loves staying with him. He's super responsive, sends photo updates, and is flexible with pickup/dropoff times. Five stars without a doubt.
Rick was very friendly and accommodating towards us. Our flight had been delayed on the way back to Seattle and he had no problems with us getting there hours later than expected, which was so helpful! Every day he seemed to have a new adventure for Levi - the lake, hiking, etc. Rick sent so many pictures too and I could see in Levi's face that he was having so much fun in every one!

Rick was awesome. Very easy on arranging pick-up and drop-off times for our dogs 4 day stay. Rick sent updates via pictures and text every day. He also took some amazing photos of our dog. My wife and I will absolutely use Rick again. Adam
Rick took great care of my little lady and sent me great pics of their adventures together!
I work long shifts, so it is impossible to find a doggie day care that is open from 6:30am to 7:30pm. Rick was willing to work with my schedule and took good care of my pup. A+ will use again.
Rick was an excellent sitter for my dog Mr. He took him on runs & visited dog parks. Mr had a great time. Rick helped me out on fairly short notice & even picked my dog up at my place. Thanks Rick!
Marcel had a great time staying with Rick. I could tell from seeing a picture with his ball that Rick sent to me as Rick was good at checking up with me while I was gone for a couple of days. Rick really enjoys being around dogs and knows a lot about them and the TLC that they need! I'll gladly be using his services again. I was very grateful for Rick staying at my place as a dogsitter! It's hard to find many people you can trust to stay at your home that will watch your dogs for you.

Rick was a great host! We were walking distance from his place, so he came to pick up Digby that first day! Sometimes when we get Digby back from the sitters, he's acts a bit weird because of the change in routine. With Rick, Digby came back happy and settled right in!

I needed to leave for California last minute, and Rick agreed to watch my dogs the night before my trip-- so helpful! He sent me tons of pictures, and the dogs came back happy and tired! Couldn't have asked for more!
