Hello! My name is Nick. I’m a grad student at UIUC, with some time open to walk and care for your pet. I have a 4 year old retriever mix, Gabe, who we adopted in 2020. I believe in a patient, loving approach to working with dogs. It’s important that they are hydrated and that I recognize signs of distress or ill health. I’m happy to fill any special requests/commands needed for your dog. I’m walking in memory of my dog Samson who we lost to cancer in July 2019.

“I’d love to be your dogs new companion/walk buddy!”

Hello! I have a lot of experience caring for dogs, from bitty puppies to seniors. I have trained my own puppy and understand the importance of being kind and patient with animals. I also foster and train service dogs/puppies in training. That being said, I know many advanced commands and am comfortable using different signals for different commands. I also am familiar with administering medications when needed. I am very active and don't mind taking dogs for long walks/runs as well!
