About Ryan

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I grew up in a pet-loving home. We always had at least one pet and as many as three at a time. When I was born we had a shepherd mix named Misty. When I was a little older we added a rescue cat named OJ then another, Ziggie. Later we added a rescue pup named Panda (my mom always told me even the vet wasn't sure what her breed was!).

I also lived with a with a great big lab puppy for a while who was absolutely amazing, cuddly, and super mischievous but no one could stay mad because of his incredible personality. Most recently I lived with two shih tzus, one an incredibly adorable bubbly puppy named Ariel and the other a somewhat troubled older dog named Nibs, which was fitting because he was super protective of his mom and would nibble your hand off if you got too close at the wrong time.

So, I have a lot of experience with many different pets of different breeds and temperaments.

My home has lots of natural light from our huge south facing windows so we get sunlight all day. I live with my girlfriend Deena who also grew up with pets and loves dogs. She's very excited at the prospect of having pets around!

I'm about a mile from Balboa and Pioneer Parks so we can walk, jog, or drive for some great open running. I'm also set back from main roads so we can walk through residential neighborhoods without worrying about crossing busy streets. I love to be active myself so running around outside with dogs is my type of recreation!

I'm in nursing school and have the expected caring nurturing temperament so I'll provide the same loving care for your pet and certainly deliver any special needs he or she may have.


I am available almost all holidays for an small premium.

Please keep to agreed upon drop off and pick times. If a pet owner is more than an hour late beyond the time we agreed upon, a standard $15 day care fee will be applied. If we are in communication, of course I will make exceptions for emergencies, up to my discretion. Please inquire with any questions.

Ryan was kind enough to take on the task of caring for my 6 month old lab puppy during a time I was spending 12-14 hours away from home due to work/commuting. Ryan was the perfect fit- dependable,attentive, flexible, and I'm certain very patient as well knowing Tyson's behavior at that time. Not once did I return home to an accident or destruction in the house, which any of you who have had puppies know is quite the feat over a 2-3 month span. I would often times instead return home to find Tyson wiped out in his bed with a stick he had picked up during their walks or having fallen asleep with a new toy Ryan had brought over. Tyson's behavior upon Ryan's arrival was all I needed to see to know he was in the right hands while I was away. Thank you again Ryan!

Hello my name is Golan Klotzman, Ryan to me is like a big brother I never had and such a great guy. About 2 years ago I got a puppy, she's a shih tzu and her name is Ariel. Ryan adored Ariel so so much that he would always offer to take her for walks and was always there to watch her when no one else could. I think that Ryan would be a great dog walker because he is so caring and has a clear passion for dogs and was always great with Ariel; whether it was running around with her like crazy, or just snuggling I could always see how much he loved her.

Ryan was polite, conscientious and reliable prior to Bindi's visit. He scheduled a meet and greet and I could tell that he took great care of his furry friends. During Bindi's visit, he sent many pictures and reached out with appropriate questions. We arrived home to a happy dog, so we would definitely recommend Ryan and use his services again.
Ryan was friendly and a great dog-sitter! I received daily photos and walk-map summaries from Ryan, as well as updates on my dogs' health and behavior. I will definitely use Ryan's service again!
my dog had a lot of fun and went on adventures - came back tired and happy.
