About Nick

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Dogs have always been in my life. And for the past 3 years, I've enjoyed the company of over 50 guest dogs through DogVacay. Working with dogs is one of my preferred methods of self-care. To be honest, I think I'm literally becoming a dog. Maybe you can relate?!

I can bond with your pup in many ways. We can make regular trips to Churchill Park to toss the ball around and sniff out bunnies. We can take entertaining walks around Wicker Park and greet other dog friendly neighbors. Couch lounging is also available in the apartment where we have central air conditioning in the summer and central heat in the winter. Lastly, I'm experienced with dogs that have anxiety or low self-esteem, leash aggression, and non dog-friendly tendencies.

I also have one reliable, dog-friendly roommate who can provide additional care for your pup if I am out of the house for a period, or in the event of an emergency. That being said: I will remain the primary caretaker for all other logistical matters (i.e. feeding, walking, etc.).

If you're interested in making a reservation, please reach out and share a little about your dog and his/her needs. Thanks for stopping by!

Frequently Asked Questions:

**Q: What is your schedule like?
A: I have decent flexibility when it comes to controlling my schedule. I am typically out of the house for about 6-8 hours Monday-Thursday. And I usually work from home Friday-Sunday. My schedule can be slightly adjusted if I receive a month's notice.

**Q: How many dogs do you take in at once?
A: I usually have one dog at a time because most people prefer that. However, I'm comfortable taking up to 2 dogs, maybe 3 on a special occasion. I will not book multiple dogs without getting permission from all the owners involved.

**Q: Will you take dogs with special needs (e.g. medication management, butt wiping, anxiety, leash aggression, not dog friendly, etc)?
A: Yes.

**Q: Are there bonus perks for booking at Divine Doggy Destination?
A: Yes! There are 3 bonus perks! (1) I provide one frame-worthy photo of your dog while they stay with me. (2) All dogs will drink filtered water to ensure quality hydration. (3) Your dog could be the next Guest of the Month!

Above and beyond doesn't describe what Nick did for my baby dog. It was my first time using dogvacay and I couldn't have asked for a better host. Nick is informative, meticulous, and asks all the right questions. He went beyond the call of duty on Nick is informative, meticulous, and asks all the right questions. He went beyond the call of duty on my dog's extended stay. If you're thinking that Nick would be a good fit for you, he is. Hands down. He is smart and caring. I really can't say enough good things.

Nick is always our go-to for when we're out of town. Kitteh (our goldendoodle) really likes him, and he's great with dogs.
Not much else to say - I use Nick as much as possible!
