About Ryan

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Animals of all kind LOVE me!

I first pet sat in high school. I used to pet sit for three cats, Maine Coon (the largest domesticated breed of cat). Two of the cats had terminal cancer, so I have experience administering meds and cleaning up sick. My sister-in-law used to own and operate a very prominent high profile pet sitting service and I would fill in with tasks from time to time, mostly take care of her and my brother's five pets while they were away working. Animals of all kind seem to gravitate toward me, I have a very gentle and peaceful nature, animals are smart and must sense that about me!
When I was a child I had several different types of pets including fish, cat, lizards and rodents.

I love to go on hikes, When I am not pet sitting, I am a professional photographer and love photographing pets too!

I am very mindful of animals needs. Do your pets have any fears, allergies, handicaps? Do they play well with other dogs/animals? I am comfortable handling any dog or animal as long as I know what things I need to look for or be aware of when handling them. Please let me know of any special needs, etc.

Ryan is absolutely amazing with animals and they really do love him. My 12 year old cat is very skiddish about pretty much everyone. He came right up to Ryan the first time he was in my house and loved him up. Ryan also takes care of my 9 month old lab (who is a handful) on a regular basis. He is very patient and with her and she loves him. I often get stuck working long days and Ryan has been a godsend in taking care of my animals.
