About Nick

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been working with dogs for over 13 years, and a certified dog behaviorist for 5 years. My parter in life & buiness Elizabeth Kaupp is also certified and lives with me and also helps. We ran a full boarding facility in New Jersey for 5 years b4 giving the business to my sister and moving to Delray beach for a life change.

We usually wake up by 630am sometimes earlier if the dogs are up. We go out side in the backyard eat breakfast. For the dogs that don't like to sleep in they can stay in bed until breakfast. Than we go for a walk sometimes all of us sometimes one of us stays behind if dogs can't or won't want to walk. We get early so the pavement isn't hot. Than one of us is home with them during the day hanging out playing, swimming in the baby pool, sunbathing napping whatever they want to do. Than dinner and evening walk if everyone is up to it. We have couches, dog beds, people beds, crates, whatever the dog does at home we keep up the same routine.
I promise you won't regret hiring us we love what we do and are the best at it!!

Our company The Balanced Dog of Delray Beach LLC is fully insured as well. If you check our website.

Mr. Valentino is an incredible expert in animal care especially with dogs. He is compassionate and extremely knowledgeable for what is best for the animal. Nick had provided training for my difficult dog and even offered long term fostering. In fact, I also adopted a pet from him which is a perfect match for our family. Nick has always remained available for questions and advice, at any time or any day that we needed. He has made a true difference in our families lives! If there was any award that the president of United States could give him, it would be the #1 dog expert!

Nick and Elizabeth were excellent dog sitters for my dog, Peanut. While they love dogs and were dog-centered, allowing dogs to socialize with each other and do their own thing, I also knew Peanut would be safe in their care. They have trained with Cesare Milan, and understand canine behavior. They are also great with people, super-friendly!

Nick took care of my dog many times while my family and I went on vacation. Nick worked with him on some training things to keep him safe when he first stayed as a puppy. My dog was always happy to go see Nick and he was tired when he came home. Many of my friends have left their dogs with Nick too. Nick clearly loves dogs and the dogs ALL love him.

I have hired Liz as a pet and house sitter many times over the last 6 years. Each time, I am impressed by how she treats both my dogs as well as my home as if it is her own. She is incredibly responsible and has an incredible passion for what she does.

Nick has trained/boarded 5 of my dogs over the last 9 years and it has been a series wonderful experiences. Not only is Nick naturally great with dogs, he makes it his mission to continuously evolve as a trainer. He is always educating me as a "doggy daddy" on the latest and greatest behavioral techniques. I highly recommend him.

We have a chocolate lab with major anxiety issues. Nick and Liz embraced him which put our minds at ease. Our lab grew to love them and he was virtually anxiety free while in their care. They took time to gain his trust and it was beneficial to all! Would highly recommend!

Nick was my lifeline with my German Shepard puppy, Rex. Not only did I always feel that in Nick and Liz's care Rex got lots of love and playtime with his dog friends, but Nick also spent time training Rex. Additionally he worked with my family privately on dog training and discipline. I have only the most positive things to say about Nick and liz. Any dog would be so lucky to be in their care!!!

Our dog, Dexter, loves to stay with Liz and Nick! I'm confident when he's with them that he is well cared for, walked regularly, and having the best time. He even returns home better trained! They are great! I will use them whenever we are away. I think he has as much fun on our vacations as we do!

Liz was a fantastic resource to us in caring for our new puppy Deena. She was flexible and helpful with our needs. I could tell she was knowledgeable; a true dog person! I had complete confidence in her ability to care for Deena.

Wonderful service. I received updates and pictures of my dog during my days out of town. I can perceive positive changes in my dog's behavior. I had peace of mind. I will trust my dog to Nick every time I will need boarding for my dog.
