Nick was amazing with our doggie!! We did a pre-meet as well to make sure it was a great fit. Left Noa there for 12 days. He always sent pictures to us which made our day. She was allowed on the couch and even the bed. Highly recommend Nick!! Cannot thank him enough! ♥️

It was a great pleasure to have Nick and Diane take care of our dog Charlie while we were out of town. Charlie had been ill previously and needed special attention and daily medication. Diane provided excellent care for Charlie and our home. We really appreciate how well they cared for everything.

Nick recently took care of our year-old pup for over a week. He sent us daily updates on how she was doing, complete with amusing photos. Our girl got along very well with Nick's sweet, calm dog. We enjoyed our time away knowing our dog was in good hands with Nick in a safe and comfy environment. We will certainly use his services again.

Nick & Diane:

Nick cares for visiting pups in our home. He has been doing so for several years and has 25+ repeat customers. Our two dogs, Olive and Babe (aka Kitty-Kat), have not yet met a visiting dog they did not like. Nick prefers to watch just 1 visitor at a time so we can give them the utmost attention ... treating them as if they were our own. We will occasionally take in two ...

What Nick would like to know about your dog

We will watch any dog of (almost) any age or sex (no pups under 1 year of age). We find that once you get to know a dog they just love to see you, whether coming to your house for a stay or you going to their home for a visit. They may know their owners are leaving for a while but they get over that quickly....especially when we begin to spoil them as we do.

When Nick watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We live on a country road. It is safe but not the easiest of walks. With the running area our yard provides most people agree a structured walk is not necessary. We will however walk your dog if after familiarizing yourself with our space you still feel a walk off premises is what your dog needs. No problem.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your dog will sleep in our bedroom on his own bed, at least that is where we will start him out. There are always extra beds in the living room, the office and the 3rd bedroom. Therefore, after figuring the layout, your guy (or gal) may decide to sleep elsewhere....again, their call.

Time we will spend with your dog:
Either I or Diane will always be on premises. We spend time on and off with all of the dogs, ours and others, as we go through our daily activities. Your dog will either be roaming the yard, wrestling with one of our pups or just being lazy...indoors or out, his call.

Diane, while staying in your home, will make sure your pets (cats, dogs or whatever) are happy and content until you return. If that means letting them sleep with her or share the couch (as long as it is fine with you) then that's what we do.

Because I have been doing this for so many years you can be comfortable with the knowledge that I have probably faced any conceivable situation and can handle same properly.
