Nick was great! Super responsive and flexible with timing (which was greatly appreciated!). Lacey enjoyed her stay, and I'm sure she'll be back soon!

THANK YOU again, Nick, for allowing me to bring Bug to you on the most beautiful spring Saturday we’ve had all year! She loves walking the city on pretty days and I love knowing she’s enjoying it.

My very stubborn, 6-year old Chocolate Lab mix, Oboe, just spent a few days with Nick. When I picked her up, she acted as if she did not want to come home with me but would prefer to stay with Nick. While this is one of Oboe's standard MOs under these circumstances -- nonetheless breaking my heart -- it at least makes clear that she had a good time staying with Nick.

Flexible work-at-home dog lover

I've cared for dogs my entire life. I trained, raised, and loved my best canine friend for the past 11 years--he was a great little guy and was always complimented on his behavior and temperament from his puppy days. I was always sure he got as much praise and love as possible--I've found positive reinforcement yields the best results. As he aged, he had special medication needs and arthritis, so I have experience with the ...

What Nick would like to know about your dog

-I'd like to know if he or she has any specific behavioral issues or triggers--the more I know, the better I can take care of him or her. Even the best trained dogs have a few vices.
-Are there any medications or special needs your dog has?
-What is the potty break situation? Can he/she hold it for more than a few hours, are potty pads necessary, are you still in the process of housebreaking, etc.
-What is his/her energy level?
-How well does he/she get along with strangers and other animals?
-What does he/she like to do? What are the things he/she is less interested in?
-I don't have any breed preferences and I am open to any kind, but I do not have a large space--it makes sense to babysit a smaller breed, or at least a fairly lazy larger breed.
