About Riki

If it's true that "a tired dog is a good dog" our dogs are the best! After all of the playing, training, walking, running and dog-parking, all they want to do is sleep. They collapse anywhere and everywhere: the floor, couch, bed, closets, cardboard boxes, even suitcases and chairs.
My husband and I recently moved to Queens New York from Jerusalem Israel with our two awesome dogs: Spartacus is a 90lb Golden-retriever mix (my husband likes to say he's mixed with a polar-bear). He is our gentle giant who we sometimes call "the rug" since he spends most of his time sprawled on the floor. Piper is a rambunctious Lab who we rescued from the streets of Jerusalem (she would have jumped and licked everyone to death). She is full of energy and loves to play.
We really lucked out on the apartment we found. It's on the ground floor with a private entrance. The walls and ceilings are all concrete so you can't hear a thing, and it's gigantic! Perfect for the dogs who will occasionally arise from their stupor to romp around or play.
We take our dogs (and when I say "our" I mean "yours" too since we consider all dogs staying with us to be part of the family) on at least 3 walks a day. One walk is a trip to our local dog park. It's muddy but big with lots of room for them to run around. We also go for runs with our dogs if they are up to it (Spartacus protest sometimes). We love to play tug-o-war, fetch, pet scruffs and rub bellies.
My husband is also an amateur dog trainer. He can basically get any dog to do almost anything, all while using only positive reinforcement.
I assure you your dogs won't miss you a bit. And that's a good thing!

They are great. They take such great care of Ripley every time they watch him. I won't use anyone else.
Riki was great. Ace came back happy and tired! I know he got alot of play time because he slept like a baby at home.
Highly recommend, we have used them multiple times and they have been great. Wouldn't use anyone else.
Riki & Shlomo put my mind at ease as this was my first time having my rascal in away. My biggest complement is the length of time Riki & Shlomo stay in the dog run. I would highly recommend them to any paw parent! Thanks so much!!
