About Rick

I love dogs and live alone downtown.

Dogs boarded will get a minimum of 3 walks/potty breaks per day(early morning, afternoon and evening). Weather permitting we'll go to any dog parks in the area you'd normally take them to (some people have strict preferences) and in some cases I'd be up for going for a 5-10km run with dogs that are already used to that.

I work in the fitness industry so that gives me a lot of opportunity and time to be at home or outside with your dog. I've boarded lots of different dogs now, and love the company of your furry family. I've posted pictures of the couch and bed as dogs are welcome on both (so long as that's not against your own rules). If you prefer, you can drop off with a dog bed or dog crate(preference is that smaller or younger dogs are crate trained for when I'm not at home, unless you know they'll be on best behaviour even in a new environment).

NOTE: My building has a breed restriction against pitbulls... although I've yet to meet a pittie that I haven't gotten along with, it means I can't take on any pitbulls or overly evident pittie-crosses.

Rick takes care of my dog Arthur during my holidays, and everything went well! I was very stressed to let my dog but Rick sent to me regular updates, his communication was very clear and my dog looks happy then. I would definitely recommend Rick, thank you a lot again!

Rick is just the best. I kind of want to keep it a secret so he's not booked all the time. I felt so safe leaving my two little dogs with him.

He communicated daily and my time away was stress free thanks to how informative he was on how Mango and Jyoti were doing.

I really appreciated that my dogs were allowed the same run of his home as they get when they're with me. I know they felt comfortable and secure with Rick.

We will definitely be booking with Rick again. Thank you for treating them as your own, Rick!
