"Ryan has been providing mid-day walks for
my two dogs for about a month now. It's great knowing that they are getting out
for some fresh air and exercise and that my pup is getting her medication."

"CoCo has stayed with Ryan a few times now,
and is always very excited to see him. He has been flexible with timing and is
happy to work with her on some of her issues. We are grateful to have found
someone willing to take her despite her poor social skills with other dogs, and
have seen improvements with this already. CoCo comes home happy, safe, and
tired...all great things!"

"I could not have asked for a better person to leave my pup with while I went away for a few days. Upon meeting Ryan during a meet and greet, I could sense his love for dogs and knew that he'd take great care of my little partner in crime. Ryan sent pictures and updates over the few days Rusty was with him and definitely wiped him out! Rusty was exhausted for a good 2 days when he got home which was great because he definitley got a lot of exercise. Thank you so much Ryan!"

"Ryan is so wonderful - he really has taken the time and energy to get to know our dog and to give him love while we're away. We're so thankful!!"

We cannot say enough AMAZING things about Ryan and the care he was able to give our 3 year old Pit Mix, Buddy while we were on vacation! Ryan agreed to watch Buddy for us at the last minute so we could attend a family event out of state. We took Buddy to meet him a couple days prior to leaving and we could tell immediately that Buddy was going to be in the right hands. Our dog is great around other dogs of all breeds and sizes but has shown fear aggression towards some people in the past, and it's stressful for us to try to acclimate him to new people that aren't confident around apprehensive dogs. Ryan was AMAZING. He was confident and calm the entire time. He allowed Buddy to meet both of his dogs right away (a beautiful American bulldog mix and a smaller breed mix). The bulldog and Buddy had a couple rounds of rough play and exchanged a few growls before they figured out their pecking order. Ryan never once showed any concern and was able to interpret the dogs' behavior for us as we watched. It gave us a much better understanding into our dog's thought process and helped us to relax as well. By the time we dropped Buddy off for our trip, he was whimpering with excitement as he approached Ryan's house! Ryan sent us pictures while we were on our vacation, of Buddy looking very tuckered out and cuddling contently on the couch with one of Ryan's friends! It made us SO HAPPY to see Buddy so relaxed and at ease around new people. We tend to limit his social interactions with strangers but that's something we'd prefer to help him work on and Ryan has definitely shown us that our dog is deserving of much more trust than we've been giving him credit for :) Buddy almost seemed sad when we brought him home lol. He definitely enjoyed his time with Ryan. We can't wait to use his service again!!!! - Jake and Malia D., Dogvacay.com
