Excellent walker. Seemed confident and comfortable with my dog. Wonderful detailed feedback and photos. Seems to really enjoy being in the company of dogs. Super patient walking my dog to her morning training classes or daycare (and she isn’t much of a morning dog).

Nicholas is AMAZING as always. Ripley is parked in front of the door waiting for him to come back from vacation. We both miss him! It’s OK the Rippy might like him better than me. He’s a a wonderful person, a complete animal lover, and one of the few people I would ever trust with Ripley if I ever had an emergency or needed help/dogsitting. He has become a member of our ...

Energetic Aussie Who Loves Exercise

When your pup stays with me, they’ll find a warm, loving home away from home. What I love most about dogs is their intelligence, their unique personalities, and their unconditional love. It makes me so happy to give love and care back to them in return.

Growing up in Australia I've been lucky to always be surrounded by so many different animals. I grew up with a Maltese Terrier my entire childhood until I ...

What Nicholas would like to know about your dog

I believe that great customer service starts with excellent communication with clients. I like to ask clear and concise questions to ensure everything is in order before the stay. During the visit, I keep my client updated on our activities with lots of photos and text updates. I closely follow owner instructions to make sure your pup feels happy.

I always like to meet new pet friends in a neutral location, but at home is fine too! When we first meet I like to get down to their level. I let the pup sniff my hand (this is like a handshake), then I seal the deal with a nice back scratch. If your pet is nervous, I always try and face sideways so they feel more in control. Also, yawning sends a signal to them that helps keep them as ease. I love all breeds and sizes of dogs, but I do always insist on a meet and greet first — that way we’ll know each other when we go for our first walk.

When Nicholas watches your pet

I work 9 to 5, but have a very flexible schedule. We’ll go outside for a potty break first thing in the morning, then another lap around the block before I leave. At lunchtime I'd pay another visit to stretch those doggy legs! In the evening we'd go for another walk, and then outside again right before bedtime. I’ll structure our time to match your pup’s regular schedule as closely as possible.

New York is full of fun places and smells for dogs to explore. I like to find places where they can feel the grass or earth beneath their paws.
