About Riccardo

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, I'm Rick!

I am a full time student and I have 3 years of experience working with dogs, I have had dogs my whole life. Since I am a full time student I am not available 24/7, drop off and pick ups must be within my available hours and dogs staying for an extended time must be comfortable being at home alone for several hours at a time. I take in dogs of any breed as lond as they are social, house trained, and have all their medical papers up to date. I am open to taking dogs with special needs, please ask.

My goal is to provide your dogs with a safe and familiar environment where they can socialise, play, and exercise with other dogs. Usually dogs will get exhausted from playing amongst eachother, those who don't will go on walks to Kennedy Park to ensure they are well rested while they at my home.

I will handle all meet-n-greets personally. I will first meet your dog, maybe take them on a walk, and then bring them into my house; if you wish to see where they will stay you will have to come in without your dog. I've found that this is the best way to conduct introductions at my home; if you dog will be staying overnight I will require your dog to stay for daycare before the stay to ensure they will be confortable in my home.

I look forward to your enquiries!

Rick was great--very aware and sensitive to Baron's needs as an anxious rescue pup. Thank you.
Riccardo was fantastic with my girl Caye! He was reliable, attentive and flexible. He consistently provided feedback with pictures and updates, which was much appreciated. In addition, he was flexible with my work schedule and accommodating. Caye was much appreciated. In addition, he was flexible with my work schedule and accommodating.
