About Richard

Live in a duplex with my wife here in Caloundra.No children or pets.Am very much an animal lover.Have previously had dogs and a cat.My favourite dog is the boxer.

During my working career(am retired),had a part time job with a vet/ dog groomer company.Would either collect or pickup cats/dogs for their grooming.Also cleaned out the dog kennels and cattery.I loved this job.

The last dog I had was a German Shepherd X.(when working in Brisbane)Sadly,had to put him down due to severe hip dislpasia.This dog belonged to my sister in-law who was moving from her house to a yacht.

Must tell of the cat I had.His name was Derick.An adult cat whose owner was confined to hospital, so I adopted him.He was a British Shorthair which means he's a big cat,almost as big as the Russian Blue.Was ever so affectionate and use to love to have a chat. His demise was due to organs shutting down. Like most male cats,he did'nt mind a scrape.

My current association with animals is an organisation called "Pets for Life" So, when pet owners are unable to exercise their dogs,(for various reasons)then rather surrend them, we volunteers from Pets for Life call on then and take their dog for a walk.I walk a beautiful labrador each week for about 40 mins.

Would be looking at walking your once a day for about 40 mins.As we are both retired,at least one of us would normally be at home.

If your dog is an inside dog,then the same at my place.If an outside dog,then the same at my place.My yard is securely fenced and one point eight metres high.The gate is keyed locked.There actually is'nt any grass/lawn,but rather concrete paths and garden plots.The outside area does include a covered patio.

We are so happy to have found Richard and his wife to look after our dog, Buster. They are very kind and friendly and we felt very comfortable leaving our dog with them for 2 1/2 weeks. We missed Buster while we were away but Richard gave us a couple of updates with photos which we loved. When we arrived to pick up Buster we could tell that he was happy and at ease which was a great relief. Richard walked Buster daily, gave him plenty of attention and followed our wishes to a 't'. We will definitely book Buster in with Richard again when he is unable to travel with us in future.
