Nelson was really great to work with. They were very flexible with our scheduling needs. They seemed really caring and I will be using them again in the future!

Our experience with Nelson was a great one! They were extremely flexible, generous, and caring with our beloved pets. It made our time away so very relaxing, as we knew our pets were in such good hands. Our dogs seemed comfortable the whole time, especially in the pictures we received while we were away. I recommend Nelson for your future rovering.

Part of the Family!

If there's one thing I've learned in my years of owning and taking care of dogs, it's that they should always be treated like they're part of the family. When your dog is here with us, that's exactly how they'll feel!

I've been a dog lover my entire life and there was hardly ever a time growing up where there was not at least one in my family. Aside from caring for my personal pets ...

What Nelson would like to know about your dog

Is your dog reliable in the home? (Potty trained and chewing/eating)
Are they "talkative"?
Any past issues with aggression to other dogs or cats?
Prone to wandering, jumping fences, or flight risk?
Medical conditions or special needs?
OK to take car rides?

All breeds accepted and welcome!

When Nelson watches your pet

Our location in Louisville puts us a short drive from many of Louisville's great parks (Tom Sawyer, Hays Kennedy, Cherokee, Seneca) where we can do some serious exploring. Our neighborhood is safe and secure with sidewalks so there will be plenty of opportunities to walk there as well. We also have access to hundreds of acres of private wildlife sanctuary behind my parent's house (10min drive). With lots of trails, a creek, deer, and turkey, it may just be the best kept secret in Louisville for places to walk your dogs!

I am an avid runner so if your dog is leashed trained and capable of going anywhere from 3-10 miles at a time, he can come along. A tired pup is a happy pup!

We have a nice secure backyard that's big enough for playtime, some safe exploration, and interaction with our neighbor's dog.
