Nikolas is one of those pet caregivers who knows exactly how to be both friendly, caring, yet, very importantly, firm with pets, so the pets don’t get confused, and that’s been invaluable for me! As has Nikolas's experience with administering a pet’s medications, including shots. Has really great methods with calming pets, and is calm, sensitive to their needs, and patient with them in those times when they get stressed.

I haven’t seen a time ...

Speaking from personal experience, I have never met another person as caring, responsible, and genuinely kind in the company of animals as Nikolas. My pets love Niko even more than they love me! Even my cagiest puppy warmed right up the first time they'd ever met. Compassionate and fun, any dog is guaranteed to be well taken care of and spoiled with love and good company.

Full/part time boarder Escondido CA

Hello! My name is Niko, and I offer full or part time dog sitting and boarding services for dogs of any shape or size.

I've been raising dogs and cats since birth, and have a good few years of experience volunteering with animal shelters (as well as project wildlife san diego) under my belt.

I'm available nearly every day of the week, and have a very flexible schedule otherwise. If you need a dog or ...

What Nikolas would like to know about your dog

I do not have any breed preferences, and fully believe any dog is a good dog. However, at this time I'm not accepting dogs of any breed small or large who have been prone to aggression in the past, with human beings and with cats. I will need to know ho often and how much you feed your dog, how often and how long you would like walk or playtime to be, your dog's general attitude around people, other dogs, and cats, and if your dog has any medications or health issues I should be mindful of while taking care of them, for optimal safety.

When Nikolas watches your pet

There's an excellent field great for fetch and romping around just barely a stone's throw from where I live, and a great park within walking distance for high energy dogs that need a lot of extra space to move! I live an active lifestyle, and would be more than happy to exercise both me and the dog on runs or walks. If the dog is comfortable and feels safe with other dogs, I'd also be more than happy to bring them to dog parks to play under watchful supervision.
