About: Welcome to the number one pet vacation destination east of the Mississippi, where all your dog has to bring is its love for everything. Great for all ages and temperaments, big and small, short and tall, bold and shy, anxious and spry. Your loved one will not miss you as much as you would like at this heavenly dog retreat. Instead, he’ll become a member of the The Mr. Wiggles Waggy Wonderland pack, some of the most wonderful dogs the world has ever known. On arrival, Mr. Wiggle’s regulars who have gone through the Mr Wiggles's Waggy Wonderland training program will eagerly welcome your pup and, during their stay, will teach them the ways of the pack, even the way of the world. These conditioned pros encourage guests to feel more comfortable in their new surroundings in record time and serve as brilliant teachers who will undoubtedly complement, if not improve, your dog’s overall greatness. Every day at Mr. Wiggles is a celebration of being on vacation. Daily off-site excursions are the talk of the town and typically range from 3-6 hours. Snow, rain or shine, the party goes on all the time. In nature, we have partnered up with many of the local wildlife to ensure the most exclusive spots are at our disposal, free from danger and filled with magical moments. We also have hookups in NYC, various beaches and lakes, and a few other hush-hush spots. Chariot training, aka pulling me on a skateboard, is another guest favorite. Standard amenities include but not limited to: Authentic bonds, earned love, and nonstop companionship Constant oversight by the Nicholas, the resident dog whisperer Daily offsite adventures Indoor/Outdoor fun Couches/Beds Leashes/Collars Purified Water More photos and videos than you could hope for Medication/special dietary needs Fenced yard Air Purifiers Garmin tracking collars 24-hour freedom (crating and separation only by guest choice) Mr Wiggles Waggy Wonderland is open to guests 24 hours a day 7 days a week. It is a full time vacation, socialization, and educational paradise for all ages. Nicholas is an expert in dog behavior, training, and commanding the pack. He easily reads the needs of every guest and keeps the environment comfortable for all. All go through a thorough vetting process to ensure there are no poopers in our party

Kelly is phenomenal with dogs, whether it’s walking, caring, or playing with them! She has an incredible 6th sense for animals in general and is able to form almost an immediate bond with them. We have fostered many different dogs together throughout the years, and I have been so impressed with her sense of responsibility and maturity when looking after them. She loves dogs of all shapes, sizes, temperaments, and breeds and could definitely be trusted with any stranger’s dog.

Anytime I go on vacation or need someone to check in on my cat I call Nicole because she is super responsible and my cat ADORES her. Usually, I am very picky about who I let into my home because you never know but my friend recommended me Nicole and I have not looked back since. She has my full trust with my home and my cat who is basically like my child to me. She is super thoughtful and responsible and any pet would be lucky to be under her care.

Eric and Kathleen were exactly what we needed. From the very beginning when Eric came out to visit before we left to meet our cats and understand their needs to his daily communication about how our cats were doing and the love and attention that the two of them were providing. I have no hesitation and giving the two of them are highest possible recommendation.

About: I’ve helped take care of my family dog ever since she was a puppy and have used that love and experience to pet sit numerous animals for my friends and neighbors. Currently working part time with a flexible schedule. I usually have more than a couple hours of availability everyday including weekdays and weekends. The more time in advance the better but once again, typically very flexible. I understand all pets have different requirements whether that be an extra long walk, diet, or other behavioral accommodations. I will diligently respect policies and practices you put in place to ensure the safety and enjoyment of your pet

We love Karen and will continue requesting her anytime we need to leave our kitten at home. Karen is very responsive and flexible. She takes extra time to play with him and sends us updates, pictures and videos. It helps us stay at ease about having to leave him because we know Karen will take such good care of him. Coordinating with Karen is so easy and she has a genuine love for animals. We would recommend her for any and all of your pet sitting needs.
