About RYAN

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi There!

I have a beautiful happy 3 year old Shit-zu Chihuahua mix, named Coconut. She is shy at first but opens up eventually to new dogs. Coconut trusts me and knows I wouldn't lead her wrong. I live a pretty active lifestyle. There are 2 parks near my apartment where I take my dog jogging and playing everyday. Weekends are usually spent outdoors going to the lake, hiking, or running errands. Pets have been in my home since I was a toddler. Growing up my family owned cats and birds. I raised fish for about 9 years as well. My flatmate owns a cat who is familiar with dogs since a kitten. Sphynx and Coconut enjoy playing together.

Though I am not licensed as a professional dog trainer, I have taken a couple dog training courses. Coconut has a whole quiver of tricks. I would say I am pretty good at training trick foundations, if that is something you are interested in or working on.

I haven't met a dog I didn't like. I would love to meet yours.

Best regards,

Ryan is great. Very accommodating to my last minute request of two dogs. Also he took the little guys to a dog birthday party. Very fun. Looking forward to working with Ryan again in the future. Highly recommended.
Ryan was great to work with! He took Auggie on fun adventures and sent lots of photos, so we could keep up on what they were up to. We would definitely have Auggie stay with Ryan again.
Ryan was great! He sent me photos of Gizmo while I was away and I was confident that Gizmo was in good hands.
Ryan was a great host for Subi and great to work with :) We just adopted Subi a few weeks ago and were worried about leaving her with someone right away. But Ryan was great and eased our minds when we first met him (we met up a week before Subi's stay to make sure she and Coconut would get along). Subi was a little sick before I dropped her off at Ryan's so I had strict mom dietary instructions for him, and he was great with it (sorry, Ryan!). It was very much appreciated. He even sent a picture of Subi when he took her to a dog park during her stay which I was happy about--knowing that she was out during the day socializing with other pups. Subi and I actually had to go to Ryan's apt a couple days after her stay to pick up a water dish we forgot there and she was so excited to see him! That tells me that Subi had a really great time with Ryan and that he took very good care of her :)
Muppet had a lot of fun with her stay with Ryan. She came home very exhausted and really enjoyed her DogVacay!
Ryan was wonderful with Piper. He was also very accommodating to me.I had a vacation abroad for a week and Ryan worked with my schedule as far as drop off and pick up. I unfortunately missed my flight home and Ryan was flexible and understanding allowing Piper to stay one more evening which was one less thing I had to worry about. When I picked Piper up the evening I returned, I could tell she had a great time. She even tried to follow him back home. Ryan kept my energetic pup active and showed her the same love he does his Coconut. I will definitely be booking with him in the future and I highly recommend his services.
Ryan is an EXCELLENT sitter!

He took great care of my dog Mahi, took her out for walks, took her running with his dog Coco, sent me her pictures regularly while I was traveling and in general came across as someone who knows his way around pets and was affectionate towards Mahi :)

He's also came across as accommodating and a nice and trustworthy guy.

I will definitely leave my dog with him when I travel in the future, and I highly recommend him without any reservations as a sitter to anyone!
Ryan is a natural, nuturing pet sitter.
He kept my Clove fit, fed and fabulous, during her stay, and sent fun fotos, frequently. My pup, along with his Coconut, enjoyed hikes, jogging and other activities and adventures. Thank you, Ryan, for your special care and loving attention. Clove came home happy and healthy. What more can any dad, or mom, ask of a sitter?
Ryan was fantastic! It was clear that our dog really loved the personal attention and love that he gave her.
I highly recommend Ryan. Very responsive and took great care of my dogs.
