About Richard

As a dog owner myself I've always seen my dogs and any other pets not just as pets but as family, I've done my best to integrate them not only in my household but in my life, sharing experiences together, growing, learning and understanding each other just as you would with any brother, sister, son or daughter in your family.

When I understood that there is a possibility to expand my love, care and understanding for pets to others, I knew this would be the path I'd like to follow for as long as possible.

So I started learning not only how to take care of my dog at a basic level (feeding, vet appointments and going for walks) but also how to bring the best out of my dog in terms of behaviour, attitude, knowledge and understanding of his/her surroundings so my dog can be happy at home, not to be afraid to go to the vet, feel free when going on walks with or without a leash, but at the same time making sure my dog understands mutual respect and tolerance when communicating not only with me but with other people and other dogs/pets as well.

I'm ready to babysit your dog, but most importantly, I'm ready to help you learn how to grow with your dog and make sure your dog is ready to grow with you even when you're not around at all times. 🙏🏻❤️

In terms of my pet sitting criteria it goes as below:

-I can take unvaccinated dogs but I can also handle vet care for you so I can suggest some vet clinics where I can take your dog myself to have him/her vaccinated so you don't even have to worry about it moving forward (open to discussion)

-If your dog has aggressive tendencies we can review those prior to any agreement and I can suggest certain approaches to correct it if necessary (open to discussion)

-After having many dogs of different breeds and sizes throughout my entire life I can provide nutritional information in case you think your dog might be having issues with the food it's currently being fed, this includes the possibility of allergies and specific ingredients or components that might be upsetting your dog's stomach and metabolism.

All breeds, sizes and ages are welcomed so I'll be looking forward to meeting you and your dog(s).

Much love,

Richard

Richard took care of our five cats for two weeks. Cats are fine and the apartment was clean when we came back. He did skip 4 visits for personal reasons, coming to our apartment only once per day instead of two, still requesting full payment, which left us with an uncomfortable feeling

Richard was a lifesaver and such a great sitter for our dog while we were away for over a week. He was very communicative and is great with managing dog behavior, even getting our dominant dog to meld into the pack nicely. We'll absolutely request his help again!
