Dog Sit in Oakland
We are a family of 4, 2 boys, and Ringo makes our family complete. We live in the beautiful Oakland hills overlooking the bay. We love to travel and have done several home exchanges and have had dog/house sitters in the past. We'd love to bring Ringo with us but not always possible.

Responsibilities & Pets
Ringo is a cuddler who loves to play ball and go for a nice walk or small hike . He is not an off leash dog on walks. Not incredibly active. He tolerates other dogs but doesn't really play with other dogs. Great with kids. He is a mix of chihuaha, mini pinscher lhasa apso and some other breeds. He's a little barky/protective while at home when strangers arrive. He loves getting in the car and going for an adventure with the family. He is "clicker" treat trained.
Walk once a day and play fetch with ball. When needed. He LOVES playing fetch with the ball! Loves sleeping on the couch durning the day....
Feeding: 1/3 cup in the AM and PM. Sleeps in his crate at night. Doggie treats when needed. He must be walked on leash with his harness. He has slipped out of his collar. NO off leash walks. He is a runner but will come for a treat with the clicker. + More info
