My pup is a bit of a nervous nelly so it is always hard dropping her off but I was put at ease right away. Maeby was allowed to sleep in bed even and had lots of room to run around. She seemed happy and well cared for when I picked her up. I would definitely book here again.
What a wonderful experience for our fur baby! She seemed to love every moment. Richard and Rose took her in like a member of their family and we couldn't have been happier with their care of our Abby!
Richard was able to host my puppy last minute as our original plans for our puppy fell through. We really appreciated his quick response and good care of our puppy. He let us know everything about her stay when we dropped her off so we knew she was in good hands. He and his wife even sent us pictures of her and took her for a walk right before we picked her up for the rest of our road trip. Thank you!
Richard and Rose were amazing hosts for our GSP, Pete. We dropped him off just an hour after contacting them about the reservation and they let us extend his stay so we could stay at Christmas Town a little longer. They sent us pictures of him and were easy to contact during the stay. We will definitely be calling them next time we come to the area!
Murphy had a pawsome stay with Richard! When I walked in the house to pick up my beagle, the dog just continued chewing on his raw hide they kindly gave him, and paid me no mind. Murphy took a trip down to the lake too. The yard is massive and fenced in as well. Great stay! Thank you!
Rose and Richard did an excellent job with my dogs. They were relaxed and happy when I picked them up. I will be using them in the future for sure.
If you want a place that will bring the happiest out of your dog, then letting them go to "camp" with Rose and Rich is what you need to do. Our dog and grand dog joined a couple of other dogs for a week of lots of walks, sights, smells, swims, and loving with these two, who really seem to know and get dogs, no matter their type. I wish we lived closer so we could use them more often.
Rosie and Ritchie are great dog-sitters and really take care of pups like they are their own. Our two dogs stayed with them for 4 nights and got to go on car rides, long walks, tours of the stables and swimming in the river. Our pups seemed comfortable 'at home' with Rosie and Ritchie and enjoyed being allowed to snuggle on the couch. I'd recommend them in a heart beat!
Our buddy had a great experience with Rose and Richie! He was worked out and seems to have had a ton of fun! :-) would love to drop him off for a williamsburg retreat again sometime!
Our dogs had a great time! We received texts and pics describing their days taking long walks, playing in the sand, swimming in the river, and taking long naps because they were so worn out. We couldn't have asked for a better place to have them stay. So much more than putting them in our local kennel who would charge extra for 'extra' play time. Thank you so much TLC you showed our girls.
Honey Bear absolutely loved her stay. Ritchie and Rosie loved her as if she was their pet. Thanks again Ritchie and Rosie.
Richie and Rosie treated our dog Murphy like royalty! He got long walks, special meals and lots of attention. We honestly weren't sure he'd want to come home!
AMAZING OUTSTANDING. I think my dog was happier with them than she is with me. She was sad for two days after I picked her up. Rosie and Richard treat your dog like she is their own blood, Nevermind their own dog. I would drive out of my way to leave mi dog here again. She went swimming and on walks and drives in the country. These people love animals. It's a passion, not a job. Highly highly recommend.
Could not have asked for a better stay for our ridgeback. It is clear the moment you show up that they love animals and your pet will treated like their own. Loved the picture updates of their adventures and Richard was very accommodating and understanding. We will definitely use them again!
Five stars for being such warm and welcoming hosts. My Bailey was treated like the little princess she is. Property is perfect for dogs...lots of outdoor space. I'll definitely be booking again in the near future!
What a perfect retreat for our babies! I can't imagine taking them anyplace else. We will be back soon and often!
Richard was such a blessing. Our 2 puppies started out in a bad situation and we needed another sitter quick. They welcomed our puppies with such a love for animals, we felt comfortable right away. We received pictures of the puppies cuddled up watching TV w him, enjoying a pool made just for them and they took the puppies on walks many times a day to get the puppy energy out. We could not have found a better sitter! The first sitter complained that they would not stop crying, Richard had no trouble with that. The puppies loved his home. When we came to get the puppies they greeted us with lots of love and then went and laid down in Richards house. They were relaxed and happy. Only problem may have been that they were spoiled :) . A big thank you to Richard and Rosie, what a blessing!
What a great experience to have Troy taken care of by R & R. I am always skeptical about leaving my dog, but Troy was so happy and content and had a great time...probably better than home. Thank you so much! I will definitely seek them out again when I need to leave my dog behind.
Very happy with Rose and Richard. Will absolutely use them again in the future.
Bandit loved it.
Rose and Richard are amazing! Thank you again for your pet sitting services. You did a great job with our puppy. Hopefully, she will be back soon with you again.
Amazing and loves animals! Each photo of Bandit seems he is just like being at home!
Richard was very flexible. My dog, who is normally nervous when he is away from me, was quite calm.
