Nickey made sure me and my puppy were well taken care of while I was away. My pup had plenty of excercise and excellent care! I missed my dog a lot but received plenty of picture updates through Rover. I definitely would bring mine back and recommend to anyone looking!

Nickey was the perfect dog sitter for us. Our dog scout multiple walks, and we received picture updates along the way. He had a lot of fun and we'd be happy to leave Scout with Nickey again and would recommend her to others as well. Thanks Nickey!

There is no better dog caregiver than Nickey! My little Jack Russell is an axious dog - but around Nickey he is confident and sweet because she treats him with so much love and respect. She has a sixth sense with animals and she's very clearly in charge and the dogs she's watches over respect her and love her right back. Nickey is also very good at accomodating my own needs in terms of scheduling and ...

Alpha Dog Care

I am the proud owner of three dogs, an Italian Greyhound (Tapka), a Jack Russell Terrier (Chappie) and Chihuahua (Bones).

I recently moved upstate, a year and half now, to a lovely 3 acre farm. I have been caring for dogs and cats for over 12 years. My main base was in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. I started off just visiting homes and taking dogs on walks, but my client list grew so fast that after ...

What Nickey would like to know about your dog

I like to sit down with both owner and client for an hour to talk and observe, and if we can all go for a walk, even better
My clients range from size, and age. I've had clients that started at 8 weeks, and are now 5-7 years of age; and the largest has been a rottweiler and doberman pinscher. Both I knew all their lives. The hard part is saying goodbye when they pass. Too many over the years, but that is life.
I prefer crate trained by their owners, but understand that's hard for some. Have cleaned up many a mess found upon entering owners home and have no problem cleaning it up.
I have personal experience administering medicines orally. I have never administered meds via needle but that does not mean I can not. With some direction and practice on an orange, we can get me ready.

When Nickey watches your pet

I'm very much an alpha and keep my walks focused on the 3's. Peeing, pooing and marking. Once the first and second are accomplished, we can work on any issues you might have (i.e. seemingly aggressive when meeting strange dogs, jumping or lunging, etc.) or just enjoy the rest of time on our walk sniffing and marking.
