About Jo and Rick

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We currently offer doggy daycare in addition to overnight boarding. We’d be happy to keep your pup entertained with multiple walks and a doggy park visit (if your dog likes that) while you’re away for the day. No big crowded rooms of dogs--just a few dogs given lots of individual attention.

Both of us are semi-retired and work from our home, have no other pets, and no children; YOUR DOG IS NEVER ALONE AT OUR HOME. We have over twenty years of experience caring for pets in our home or in others' homes. We are mature, experienced, responsible, dependable, energetic and fun-loving-- the consummate dog lovers! This is not a job--this is a calling. We guarantee three walks a day tailored to your dog's energy level, a lengthy doggy park visit (if your dog likes that), and lots of human interaction and affection in a lovely home with a large enclosed courtyard for dogs to enjoy. We are located in the charming Prospect Hill National Historic District near downtown Cincinnati with two doggy parks and five city parks within walking distance! We offer free meet and greet sessions, daily updates and photos of your dog during his stay, and have excellent references and many repeat guests. Our goal is to make your dog's visit as stress-free for him and for you as possible.

We accept all breeds and all ages so long as they are house trained, treated for fleas and ticks, no history of aggression, and fairly easy to handle on a leash. We have a handicapped-accessible entrance for elderly dogs and are able to give all medications since Jo is an RN. We limit ourselves to four overnight dogs and two daycare dogs. If your dog does not get along with other dogs, then we will accept only your dog for his stay, but there is an extra charge for this. Our home cannot accommodate huge crates, but we can take small and medium size ones. Most of our doggy guests bring their own beds from home, and many like to share our bed.

We build our day around our furry guests and have a wonderful group of dogs that come back over and over. When we had dogs of our own, we searched high and low for the perfect dog sitter and never really found that person--and now we think we have become the ideal dog sitter that we were always searching for.

As a regular, Rick and Jo accommodated by request as I needed to make a quick trip out of town. This is one of the benefits of using them frequently!
Another wonderful stay for our dog. And pictures to boot. You won't regret asking Rick and Jo to care for your doggies!
Piper and Pippa have stayed with Jo and Rick several times now and they do a fantastic job! They send me pictures every day and the dogs come home in excellent shape. They really seem to have an empathy and knack for dogs. I will be using them whenever I can!
