I loved having Nic houseit for me and take care of pets while I was out of town for several days. He sent me frequent text updates that included pictures. My dog was nervous about being left and Nic went out of his way to make her feel comfortable. I travel for work and will definitely use him again and highly recommend him.

Nic is my GO-TO for dog walking and pet sitting!!! He is super reliable, trustworthy and my pups just LOVE him!! I hire him monthly and wouldn't choose anyone else to be in my home with my dogs :)

Product of an Animal Rescue Family!

All that I've said since I started working as a hairstylist is: "If all I could ever do is style hair and hang out with puppies, I'd be eternally happy." Since I can't have a puppy of my own right now where I live, it’d be so amazing to live vicariously through my client's pups and treat them like I would treat my own. Any day that I run into or hang out ...

What Nic would like to know about your dog

I always make sure to meet each and every puppy with the owner first, to establish an initial connection around the human that they trust. It's hard for pups not knowing someone then giving them their trust. Of course, each one is different, but I have bonded with even some of the toughest cases. I don't have any preferences, as I love to hangout with any and every type of pup. Small dogs to cuddle, medium dogs to play (and also cuddle), and large to huge dogs to goof around with (and figure out how to cuddle, haha). I always love to know what their favorite activities and toys are, if they're in obedience training, or if they're currently learning any tricks and how I can help! Other than that, point me to their favorite toy, a leash, and we'll always have fun!

I love working with puppy's humans, just as much as I love hanging out with them. I always make sure to ask every question about the puppies and their needs as possible, in order to make their humans feel more comfortable, and show that I truly care and want to provide an amazing experience. I LOVE taking cute pictures and sending updates to their humans while they're gone, that way they can tell how happy their baby is. I know that nobody likes to worry about the welfare of their child while they're away. I will fulfill any request I can to assure the humans are just as comfortable, and worry-free, as the pups are.

When Nic watches your pet

There's always so many pups running around with their humans in Portland, and there's no shortage of parks or fun places to walk in the metro area. Depending on where you and your pup live, we’ll go to their favorite spot, or find a new one if they’re unfamiliar to the area. I always like to use my phone and find cute dog parks (if they're friendly with other pups), as well as little shops we can walk around. Each and every walk with each pup is an adventure, and adventure is in the heart of everything I do!

Portland trails are the best, honestly! I love to hit the beach, go camping, hike, and find new places and adventures outside! Even in the rain, Portland can be a fun place to explore and find fun activities outside, as well as indoors. I often go walking and hiking in parks and trails in my area, and love camping once the sun stays out long enough. Beach trips are reserved for the summer, but I love to go every couple of weeks. I would enjoy bringing your pup with me, as long as you’re cook with it. My salon in downtown Portland, so I’m pretty close to everything in that area! I can’t wait to go on adventures and become movie binge buddies!
