About Nick

I now attend UBC studying Neuroscience but am natively from Nassau, Bahamas where I have lived for most of my life until now! I am relatively new to Vancouver and love, love, love animals!

I have had dogs, cats, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, parrots, parakeets, iguanas and lizards, cockatiels, lovebirds, doves, turtles, fish, eels, stingrays, octopi, and probably more pets than you could ever imagine!

Caring for animals (and people) is a passion of mine and I absolutely adore them all.

I have a 10 year old giant of a standard poodle named Griffin back in the Bahamas and he is the most well-behaved trained cuddle ball you will ever meet!

When your dogs stay with me they will live in comfort, and are allowed on all furniture. I live on UBC campus in a spacious apartment where I have a friendly cat named Ivyn and a well stocked aquarium. I will take your dog for long leisurely walks or runs, whether it be in the beautiful dog-friendly neighborhood, in the woods or fields around y building or to the nearby beach, on a trail in Pacific Spirit Park or on one of the many nearby trails. I will treat and cuddle them, play with them, and even help to train them. Big dogs are a PLUS! The bigger the better!

For boarding, as long as I am available on the calendar your dog will go outside at minimum every 4-6 hours and will get alI the love and excitement they need. For walking, I provide 30 minute walks, longer upon request. I can house sit on any days that I am available and will be there for most of the day especially on weekends. I can also care for cats and babysit if you have young kids! I have great experience with kids being a swimming instructor and childcare provider since middle school.

I am an artist and musician, and for a small fee can also do pet portraits of your little one upon request.

I look forward to meeting you and your pup!

Cheers,

Nick

Really good guy who loves animals. He was very communicative with regular updates. I would happily use Nick's pet services again!

Fantastic care for my kitten and I can tell Nick really loves animals. I received regular updates from Nick.

He's a very caring individual and I'm happy I entrusted my guy with Nick.

I would happily use Nick for pet care again.
