About Nicolas

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We recently moved to Harrisonburg and are eager to having tons of fun with as many four- legged friends as we possibly can.
We are the proud parents of Shanti, a rescued black lab mix who proudly holds 3 training courses (successfully approved), and currently in the process of becoming a certified therapy dog. He is not only well-trained but also very friendly, playful, and has plenty of toys to share.
Both humans in the house (happily married husband and wife) work in a home office so there will always be someone looking for your beloved pooch.
We have a small and cozy closed patio to hang out and look at the outside world. Nice grass area surrounding the house and a huge outdoor space for them to play fetch and run behind the house in a safe cul de sac (your pup will always be in a leash for his safety when outside the house, a 6 foot line for walk, 30 foot one for playing )
If the dog is crate-trained, and it is needed and/or requested by the dog’s owner, there are 4 different size crates available, so you won’t have to bring yours. Our Shanti was crate- trained when he was just a tiny puppy, and even though, he doesn’t use his crate anymore, it was just a great idea back then for him to use as his place to cool off, take a break or just as his private ‘bedroom’.
We would love to have your doggie as a guest in our home, and Shanti would enjoy having new friends to play with. Please, feel free to contact us for further questions and/or set up a meet and greet.

Nicolas was great with Fifi. I felt confident she was in good hands. We enjoyed the wedding without worry.We would be happy to bring her to him again.
Easiest dog vaycay I've done so far! He was available so last minute and sent me photo updates even though my dog was only there for a few hours! Thank you!
Great service! Will use Nicolas in the future. Highly recommend
