Nicky looked after our pets for 3 months while we were away. She was amazing. She is an animal lover in the truest sense and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to look after your pets too!

I never hesitate to leave my home or my dogs in Nicky's care. I travel a lot, and I know Nicky will always treat this space and my dogs the way I would if I were home. She's responsible, tidy, and a real dog person. If you're able to have her as your dog/house sitter, you're lucky indeed!

About Nicky

years of experience
  • First Aid & CPR
  • Verified Background Check

Experience with many breeds & ages

I’ve usually lived with at least one dog since I was a child and I love dogs, and they love me. I talk to them as though they understand, and trust that they do. Some of my happiest times are walking with dogs in the natural world. My priorities are safety and joy. I can maintain discipline yet still have fun.

I’m happy to send you pics of your happy, relaxed dog while ...

What Nicky would like to know about your dog

I truly love all dog and thus don’t have breed preferences (though my Corgi would of course say he’s my favorite!), but do need to know if there are any anxiety issues or health concerns. Of course there needs to be a local accessible vet and your dog must be comfortable with being in a car for transport, if necessary.

When Nicky watches your pet

I like to offer off-leash walks if there is an appropriate space and your dog is well trained. Otherwise, I do leash walks. I’m also happy to play fetch or Frisbee or take water-happy dogs swimming if there is a secure place to do so.
