About Ryan

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Do you want a pet sitting service that is tailored to your needs? Are you in need of other services outside of pet sitting (lawn mowing, house cleaning, etc)? I want to be your one stop shop while you are away. Make your vacation planning simple and seamless.

I provide pet sitting services in the San Antonio, TX area. I have years of experience with countless dogs of different sizes and temperaments. While we're together, your dog will be shown premium care, lots of attention and tons of affection.

While you’re away from your pets, I will post online, (and send photos of them via text message, by request) to keep you on track with their daily activities.

If you are planning on being away for multiple days, additional services can be considered and may have an additional charge. Such services include overnight stays, plant watering, cleaning, bringing in mail, putting out trash cans, etc.

For first time clients, if possible, I'd like to schedule a meet and greet to go over any important details and care instructions. Also, I'd like make sure that you and your pet are comfortable with me. This is a big commitment for you and your loved one and a foundation of trust is the best place to start.

If you find yourself in a bind and need a sitter at a moments notice, contact me, and I will do my best to assist you.

Have a high energy pet, or just one that you feel would benefit from some activity during the day? I also offer dog walking/running/playing services if you'd like me to come to your home and take them out while you're occupied during the day.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I look forward to meeting you and your loved ones!

($10 fee may apply to requests with less than 24 hrs advanced notice)

My Experience:

I have been a dog owner my entire life. I am currently the lucky owner of a rescued pit bull mix, named Gutter. To say the least, it's been an experience, but one that I wouldn't trade for anything. I understand the challenges that can come along with being a pet owner, but I also understand the love, learning and rewards that make up for it all.

I'm an experienced dog sitter with 4 years caring for dogs and cats at the Jersey Village Animal Hospital in Houston, TX. I also have experience caring for reptiles, small mammals and fish at the Post Oak Mall pet store.

Why I love dog sitting:

The short version is, I LOVE animals! Since I was a kid, I wanted to be a vet. I just wanted to be around animals all the time! During college and career, I made decisions to push my passions aside, but the fact remains to this day...I just want to love and care for animals! Particularly, YOURS!!

I've been a dog lover all of my life. There has always been one dog in the family throughout my life. I am currently the owner of a rescued pit bull mix and he's the most loving dog yet. I worked in a veterinary hospital throughout high school and I worked at a pet store for one year while attending college.

My experience administering medication:

I worked at an animal hospital for multiple years administering medications including pills, eye drops/ointments, and subcutaneous (under the skin) shots & fluids.

Ryan loves animals! Besides being punctual, reliable and easy to work with, his rates were spot on. He has certainly saved the day/weekend for me (more than once)! I have 2 dogs, fish, and a parrot and their schedules are all very different. Going away and need someone you can count on? Make Ryan your first and last call!

Ryan is a trusted dog sitter! His demeanor and abilities with my excited dogs is calm and he's extremely capable. He posts frequent updates and pics to let me know how it's going, and has great communication about scheduling. I feel so much better knowing my girls are going to be looked in on by Ryan when I'm gone. I highly recommend Ryan and will continue to call on him for future dog sitting visits!

Ryan responded promptly to confirm the stay. He met with me ahead of time to meet my pets and to discuss their needs. I was able to show him where all of the supplies were and to provide instructions on feeding, walking, and their likes/dislikes. Ryan was very attentive and asked questions such as what their vet contact information was to ensure that we covered everything.

My pets loved Ryan, and it was apparent that he really enjoyed interacting with them, playing, and providing them lots of attention. Ryan was also receptive to continuing the training I have been working on with my new kitten (I am teaching him not to jump on the coffee table).

During the stay Ryan provided lots of feedback, sending photos and text messages so that I knew how the pets were doing while I was away. He ensured their needs were met during the stay and answered any questions that I had.

Ryan had always been professional with us humans and kind and caring with our fur babies. Ryan offers us a way to travel with less anxiety about leaving our furry loved ones at home. We know there is someone there who will give them care and nurturing when we can't. The great thing about Ryan is that he keeps us posted with updates and pictures about what our pups are up to while we're away. It helps to know he keeps lines of communication open. Ryan spends plenty of quality time with them while we're away. It puts all of us, even the pups, at ease. I would recommend Ryan to anyone looking for a dog sitter!
