Hello there! My name is Nick and I love dogs! They have always been a part of my life and seem to naturally like me. I’d say I’m a good alpha and they always seem to listen to me very well. How different dogs should be treated comes intuitively to me as I have a knack for reading body language. I have moved to Portland about five months ago now, in which time I’ve been walking dogs with my girlfriend who is our neighborhood dog walker. I’ve met many different dogs throughout this time which has increased my knowledge of handling all sorts of different breeds. I hope to give your dogs a fantastic break and make their walks as enjoyable as possible. My goal is to make your dogs as happy as I can because I know these breaks mean a lot more than we could ever know to these little guys. That, as well as my love for all living things, is why I will be sure to give them the best experience possible!

“Taking care of your pups, one walk at a time!”

Hi there! In my family there are 3 rescues ranging from personalities and size; the spunky chihuahua mix(who is also the alpha if you ask her), the cowardly black lab mix, and the cuddly, substantial boxer. Since our members are rescues who all came from different pasts, their issues range as much as they do so I have experience working with more sensitive or timid dogs who need a little extra patience as well as dogs whose energy outlasts their attention span.
